Rejection Therapy

1-Month Challenge   Read about Week 1 of Rejection Therapy and Week 2: Lessons in Rejection On August 1st, I began one of my most daring experiments yet--Rejection Therapy. I first heard about Rejection Therapy from Jason Shen's video at Ignite SF. The rules are simple: you have to get rejected at least once every day. You're probably wondering, "Why would anyone…

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,…

Whole People. Whole Lives.

I recently took a risk. I added business contacts to my Facebook page and uploaded my personal blog on LinkedIn.   I've always maintained a clear line between my professional life and my personal life.   This seemingly simple switch came from a recent conversation I had about modern global leadership.

In-between Sizes

Remember that awkward puberty period?  That was fun.  Clothes were either too big or too tight.  Styles looked good one month and a sudden body shift would turn it into a trash item.  Our society addresses this idea of limbo with a somewhat negative connotation. There's a pressure to figure it out immediately, "What are your plans?" Although being in-between…

The V Word

"Courage is ...to tell the story of who you are with your whole heart." -Dr. Brené Brown's lecture I've tried to write this post several times in the past month.  It started with a breakup.  It took a detour with an empowering video I watched today on Youtube that essentially says the people that feel the most loved and connected…

Be You

The most courageous act you will ever commit is to simply be yourself. I rarely speak in absolutes, but after living (almost) 27 years and having a variety of experiences, ranging from the darkest nights of my soul to moments of ecstasy, I can confidently say it takes sheer courage to be all of who we are. While living in China, one…

Day 95: Puzzle Pieces

I spoke with a friend the other day, and she said something quite poignant: "I've been so concerned about the missing puzzle piece in my life, that I forgot to pay attention to whether it fit or not." Whether it's career, relationships, a house, a car, a school, or even a vacation, how often do we settle for less than…

Day 48: What You Need

I don't know about anyone else, but 2009 was not an 'easy' year.  It required copious amounts of faith, patience, and surrender.  It astounds me how easy those words are to type and to say, but they are much more difficult to practice. Very little this year went according to plan. I am a firm believer in creating the life…
