THE TRUTH ABOUT CLUTTER

In full disclosure, I am not an expert at organization. I do not have an advanced filing or labeling system. I can still function in a bit of chaos. In fact, recently, my sister reminded me of of a time (when we were younger) when my room was filled with piles. I had piles of - Read More -

TRANSFERENCE OF STRESS

I am so incredibly fortunate to have been blessed with amazing friendships! As I have the privilege of spending time in Europe now with one of those friends, I’m reminded that often there is nothing better for the spirit than a good laugh with a great friend!

ZEN IS NOW

I woke up with the thought that “Zen is now”….that peace is now. I’ve found myself rushing around a bit lately…anxious to get from one appointment to the next….missing the flow of life and being driven by a schedule. I hate that feeling.

LIVE YOUR TRUTH

This topic has been bouncing around my mind for a few days, so I am going to put off distractions (i.e. all forms of writing resistance haha) to try to share these ideas :) The thought of “living your truth” came about as I was commenting on the disappointing (long lasting) trend in media that - Read More -

CELEBRATE LIFE

Today I had the privilege and pleasure to interview some remarkable and truly impressive future students for my alma mater (Northwestern University). I was floored by these amazing students and the contributions they are already making to the world!

LIFE IS IN THIS MOMENT

“I don’t live in either my past or my future. I’m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we’re living now.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist During recent travels, I read The Alchemist - Read More -

THE LAST TEN POUNDS

I saw this ad from the 1950′s a few weeks ago. Since then I’ve been writing a post in my mind about it.
