Creating a Ritual of Personal Celebration

      Comments Off on Creating a Ritual of Personal Celebration

An honest moment for you here, I am terrible at celebrating myself, my small wins, my big wins, etc. I may hit my goals and instead of taking a moment to honor and celebrate my accomplishments, I move on to the next thing.

A Season, A Reason, A Lifetime

      Comments Off on A Season, A Reason, A Lifetime

For the last few years, I’ve found myself craving community. Not just people, but a heart-full community. Friendships that are a two-way street; deep connection and conversation; understanding and belonging.

Ways to incorporate PLAY into our days

      Comments Off on Ways to incorporate PLAY into our days

This is a collaborative post but as always, all thoughts are my own. When was the last time you played? I was talking to some friends the other week about how we don’t often incorporate PLAY in our lives now that we’re adults. We wake up, get ourselves (and maybe our children) ready for the day, rush off to work,… Read more »
