    How to Live More Intentionally This Year

    What does it mean to be your own person? We can’t ignore the mounting conclusion that we are summations of our past experiences, various environmental factors, and the genetic legacy we have inherited from our family trees. The good news is, if you are the kind of person who is looking to have more connection and joy, based on genuine feelings and honest experiences, you can influence those factors to a significant degree! I find this topic fascinating.

    Keep on Winking with Good Vibes

    What if Postcards were more than a Celebration of your Trip? In the past, I would send postcards that said Hey! How are you? I am sending you a postcard from this cool place and I was thinking of you. I am pretty sure there was a rule about sending an interesting tidbit in every postcard. Which works fine if you are traveling. But what if we were to send postcards from the point of our everyday lives? I did buy a bunch of cards but they never made it to the post office. This time, instead of attempting to do something that doesn’t work for me, how about we share…

    2020 Words

    It is that time of the year where everyone is sharing their word for the year. As I grow older I find I am having a harder time committing to overly positive and ambiguous words. Being extremely positive ALL the time made me blind to things. It contributed to me being ignorant. It took time for me to regain a sense of balance through awareness. It’s weird that there is a part of me that wants to join in and there is an equally strong part of me resisting it. Instead of choosing between the two, I am going to make space for both. A couple of years ago I…

    Book Review: Selfie, Will Storr

    Earlier this month I was listening to a podcast while unpacking. The guest was Will Storr and I thought, wait-the book they are talking about is familiar… I reached for the next box and this book was sitting there on top like an old friend waiting for me to be ready to read it. I guess it’s time. Considering this book was published in 2017, it is surprising how relevant it still is. This book is for anyone who has ever wondered where our “selfies” and “individualism” ideas and behaviors come from, the impact of over-praising and cocooning children, and why we accept fakery as real. It does so in…

    Define Yourself

    Where can you go for a good taco these days? If I asked you to share with me your favorite taco joint, where would you send me? I hope you tell me about your favorites. But lately it seems that instead of sharing what we love and why we love it, we insist on telling people their experience is invalid. We tell them what they should like. We quickly put down other people’s preference and we shun those who don’t agree with us. I’m currently binging Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. Season 9: Episode 1. In this episode Bourdain explores the Los Angeles area through the eyes of the Mexicans and…
