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…

Express Train to Nowhere

I had a "New in NY" moment today. In an effort to get home after a networking meeting, I hopped on the first train I saw. Everyone else was rushing to make it before the doors closed, so I assumed I needed to be on that train. Then I noticed the train was going fast--too fast. We passed by stop after stop, and at first,…

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…

What is Love Actually?
An Interview with Elisabeth Cardiello

What does love actually look like when someone dies? It's not a question our society often asks or creates the space to discuss. But how we love those no longer with us, and perhaps more importantly, carry on what they stood for or taught us, is one of the most important questions we can ask each other and ourselves. In…

No Regrets. Many To Do’s

I received shocking news Sunday morning. A good friend and former colleague of mine's mom died unexpectedly. Although I didn't know my friend's mother personally, I know she was a kindred spirit. Someone who lived out loud and without regret. She was moments away from receiving her Ph.D in Australia, starting her own business, and creating her own inspirational movement in her…

Yours, Mine, & Ours: 6 Months Experiment!

December 1st marked a momentous initiation and (r)evolution in living! All are welcome. The root of the word "revolution" originated in the 14th century, pertaining to "celestial bodies." It is also defined as an "instance of great change in affairs." The word "evolution" stems from the 1620's as an "opening of what was rolled up." I've combined the two for…

Living your Dream Limbo? Just Keep Swimming!

One of my biggest missions for "6 Months to Live" is to inspire and empower people to create lives they love, so it's important to me that I am a cheerleader for people and their dreams. I want others to know that dreams do come true, that everything is possible, and that magic and opportunities are everywhere. As the blog continues…

2 Lessons that Will Change Your Life

Childhood Lessons The first time I dared to create the seemingly impossible I was 13-years-old. I set my sights on attending one of the best schools in Atlanta, even though most of the odds were against me (didn't have family there, applying in a year where they took a handfull of students, different religion, to name a few). My parents…
