“Kick the Shit out of Option B”

You’ve probably heard/read this statement and seen it reposted dozens of times over but I’m going to write about it anyway. Why? Because Sheryl Sandberg is showing the world why she is incredible woman. And she believes we can all be incredible women. And because once I read this post that was sent to me…

Legacy, Love & Loss of a Centenarian

We lost our Grandmother yesterday. Despite our loss, she has gained eternal peace. My grandmother blessed this world 100 years and a longevity of selfless love for others.

#SoulfulSunday: Brainfood

Sometimes we all just need a day where we sit in a cafe with a bottomless cup of coffee with my computer and good music as our creative companions.

STAND & Face Life

Rain, shine or my own inner hurricane, I’m STANDING and FACING the world. This sounds boastful but I HAVE to verbalize and be proud of this so that I may keep moving forward. I’ve kept my shit together even if I didn’t know whether I could.

THE WORLD NEEDS MORE LOVE LETTERS

The World Needs More Love Letters. I wholeheartedly agree. Which is why I signed up to be a part of this love letter writing brigade of feel good gooey-ness.

The Art in Suffering

In essence, suffering cultivates character.

The Voice – Fear Busting Part 2

So now I am asking myself…am I afraid of singing or am I afraid of failing at singing? I probably sounded terrible and there were probably a few blown ear drums in the neighborhood. But at that point, I didn’t care that I sounded AWFUL.

The Power of “Yet”

  The power of Yet. I’m not there “Yet”. We’re not there “Yet.” Another perspective on Failiure – instead of failing, perhaps you just haven’t gotten there “yet.” (More on this concept here). Some may say that the power of “yet” means you just delay failure’s inevitable. But what if the power of “yet” was…
