We Rise By Lifting Others

 A friend recently commented that my bathroom looked like a Sephora Pop-Up shop. While my initial gut reaction was to say thanks, I quickly realized they had just written me a great big Reality Check.

5 Minute Meditation: Infinite Possibilities

As a kid, you often don't think too much about stuff, you just do it - and usually, you make mistakes and learn. I turned 28 this year, and just between us, I feel like I'm only now starting to get a hang of this "adulting" thing.

This word is said before every meal, tracing its roots back to Buddhist tradition. I immediately became enamored with how it so simply and elegantly it shares gratitude and thanks."

How To Get Out Of A Funk

A few things on my mind: The weather up here in New York is pretty coldish, rainyish and all colors of greyish. Our president thinks that arming teachers with guns could be a good idea. Climate change is still a thing (more on that later). Oh and I currently have a migraine. UGH. I guess this is life though sometimes right? It can't all be roses. This important thing is to relax, reset and get back out there.
