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…

Big Vision Mastermind!

What would you do if you had 6 months to live? This single question forever changed my life. It immediately focused my dreams and showed me what was most important. It also reminded me that there are no guarantees and that the true gift in life is to experience what makes you come alive, which naturally inspires and helps others! This…

When to Bail Out or Stay the Course

This time last year, I was in the process of creating a huge and seemingly crazy dream. I decided in August of 2012 that I wanted to leave my job and my life in San Francisco and sail in South America. I had no idea how to sail. Very long story short, I found myself living the dream 3 months…

Drop the Mask & Be Who You Are

That title is easy to write but can be incredibly difficult to do. From a young age, we are encouraged to wear a variety of masks and labels so much so that the #1 regret of the dying is: "I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me." And…

Writing Your Life, Part 2

First off, I want to thank everyone for their thoughtful, kind, and wise comments on my initial post, Writing Your Life. One of the many things I've learned and gained from this ongoing experiment in living is to be open and vulnerable (see The V Word) with others. I'm deeply grateful to everyone for listening and commiserating on questions we…

Cleaning House: Making Room for a New Year

The Chinese have a beautiful tradition for Spring Festival, or Chinese New Year. Each family cleans their house thoroughly before the end of the year. In mopping, dusting, and sweeping every nook and cranny, the old energy of the previous year is cleared away, and there is space for the new. On the first day of the new year (according…

Based on a True Story: Meet Currie Rose

One of blogging's many beauties is that it opens doors to meet new people around the world.  Shortly after I started my blog, I began "wandering" around the internet.  I wanted to see what other people had to share.  It was a day like any other when I read "Based on a True Story" and met an extraordinarily inspirational individual,…

“Angry Girl Inhales Waffle Cone”

Today's headline might have read something like this in my world.  It was a rough day.  After biking home, I took a swift walk to the park and unloaded my frustrations.  My mom patiently listened on the phone, as I told her about everything going on in my world and then she said "I love you" and goodnight. On the…
