COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

As I near the final stages of recovery from the flu, I have become a little reflective. It is pretty clear that I had not been getting enough sleep in the midst of traveling and committing to too many things. I set myself up perfectly for being sick. And the flu had an astounding way - Read More -

SELF BLAME

I’m irritable when I’m tired. I’m impatient when I’m hungry. Loud noises, bad smells, and big crowds can wear me down. But I made it through loud holiday celebrations, crowded airports, and a kind lady sitting next to me on a plane that continued to pass gas throughout the flight. Haha! (True story.)  Though I’m - Read More -

CONSOLATIONS

Many weeks ago, a woman [that I didn't know] approached me in a parking garage and said, “I’m trying to get to your level.” I laughed her comment off with a smile and kept walking. But she continued, following me, and said, “I know it wasn’t easy.” We were walking together now towards the steps - Read More -

DO WHAT YOU FEAR

While I was in Germany, I had the incredible opportunity to speak with a group of middle and high school aged students at my friend’s school. We spoke of many different things and they asked me many important questions like, “Do you have a boyfriend?” and “What kind of car do you drive?” and “Are - Read More -

THE SAGE WAS SICK

Unfortunately, I’m not one of those people who can say, “I never get sick.” When I miss sleep and over-schedule myself, it’s a pretty good bet that I will pay for it later. Traveling to four countries in two weeks was a bold plan…and I definitely needed some time to recover and get back to - Read More -

THINGS CHANGE

As I write this post, I feel so happy! :)  It has been so wonderful to be back in LA and spend quality time with friends and family. It’s so hard for me to even believe that a week and a half ago, I was miserably hiding out in a hotel room to avoid being in the - Read More -
