What Can We Learn from Loss?

How does it feel to lose? Last night's Super Bowl Game was rough for Falcons fans. It's easy to feel defeated when your loyalties are on the losing side of history. After a big win, most of us know how to celebrate. We come together, we toast, we eat, we dance, we laugh, we unite. In loss, we don't always…

We Have a Choice.

The world is doing some pretty crazy things right now. Between Brussels, Nigeria, and the current political situation and actions in the US, I often feel dumbfounded, angry, and deeply saddened. This is to say nothing of the recent GoFundMe campaigns from friends who are raising money for their baby girl who needs major heart surgery, a friend from high school…

What is Love Actually?
A Chat with Heather & Tim

My Mom always says, "Love is a verb." Tim and Heather Bischoff, Founder of Dragonfly Direction, are a quintessential example of what love actually looks like over 26 years of love, marriage, raising children, growing up together (Tim and Heather met when they were teenagers), realizing dreams, navigating many ups and downs, and becoming the incredible people they are today.

The Definition of a True Friend

A good friend of mine completely blew me away today. I went into our conversation concerned that after hearing what I had to share that he may no longer want to have anything to do with me. Even though uncomfortable and scary, I knew that I had to speak with him because I believe that true friendships are built on honesty. Rather than being…

Untold Stories

My favorite part of travel is hearing people's stories. You just never know who someone is until you learn more about their life. On a trip not so long ago, I sat next to a woman who was on a plane to New York for a funeral. Her best friend from childhood's grandfather had just passed away, and she was going home for the first time in years.
