    Sweet Honey Iced Tea, Walking After Midnight

    A couple days ago I shared on Instagram that I attended the first Happiness Workshop presented in Seoul! What I didn’t tell you is that it took me 3 days to recover from that experience. When I saw the message pop up on my Facebook feed the night before the event, I had no idea what I was about to get myself into. I had never heard of We Work and their monthly seminars before, but the marketing vibe was good, and I was totally lured in by the hands-on component of the workshop. I decided, why not? And off I went. Well I thought the best thing was to…

    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…

    5 Ways Being a Parent makes you a Great Life Coach

    “That which we are, we shall teach, not voluntarily, but involuntarily. Thoughts come into our minds by avenues which we never left open, and thoughts go out of our minds through avenues which we never voluntarily opened. Character teaches over our head.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson,”The Over-Soul” If I can only have one rule to guide me as a parent, it would be to understand our actions will always speak louder than words. Being a parent is not about herding kids from one place to the next.

    Sweet Honey Iced Tea, I Need a Simple Planner

    I confess. I am a planner addict. I crave organization only because I like to sort chaos into simple categories! When my friends pull out their planners, I can’t help but ohh and ahh over them! Who can resist the look at how productive I can make you marketing? Not me. But the truth is, I feel a bit anxious. What if I pick the wrong planner? My carefully built scheduled efficiency will crumble and I will let everyone around me down! At least that’s how it was goes down in my head when I am left to my own devices.

    Truth S.H.I.T

    I recently spent some time creating quotes about truth.  Why?  Because I feel there is an overwhelming amount of irritating propaganda posing as truth.  I’m talking about the kind of stuff that stands on such a weak foundation, it is afraid of an honest debate.  Instead of communicating and strengthening communities, it’s the kind of stuff that empowers people to heckle and tear vulnerable-everyday-imperfect-people apart. Simply put, propaganda is a highly polished art form used to emotionally move a group to act on principles and beliefs they want internalized… even if it is against the best interest of the group in question.  Once it’s been internalized, it tends to show up in…
