Alright guys, goal setting time is upon us!
Resist the urge to go all hipster/ironic, or emo/anti everything, when it comes to goals. Yes, I know that only capitalistic robots who have been brainwashed by corporate America would even dream of doing something so cliche as setting goals that begin on January 1st (heaven forbid).

I once knew a girl who had a plan.
She had a plan because she had “Manifest Monday’s” with her best friend every week. This day would consist of them getting together and writing their own personal lists of things they wanted to see happen in their lives. Big or small, they’d write the [...]
There are no words.
Which is why it’s going to be extra hard to explain what I’m talking about. It’s you. It’s all of you guys. You are incredible. The feedback you gave me after my last post brought me to tears multiple times. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your heart felt responses [...]Continue Reading →
In case you haven’t decided if you’re ready to make the necessary sacrifices for your extraordinary life, or if things have been getting a rough lately and you just need a little encouragement to remember why you’re doing it, let me tell you a little about what has changed in my life since I began [...]Continue Reading →
I’m not sure if it’s her raspy voice or her slight east coast accent that makes you know she’s awesome… but there’s just something about Lauryn Hill that makes everything she says sound extra true!
I do know that it’s her vulnerability that makes me love her. If you’ve never seen or heard her MTV [...]Continue Reading →
Blah. I was laying sprawled out on our couch feeling blah and puzzling my husband. I had no idea what was wrong, all I knew was I felt frustrated and negative for seemingly no reason…which only causes MORE frustration and negativity!
I realized I hadn’t been outside all day so that might help. I walked [...]Continue Reading →
“There are some things success is not.
It’s not fame, it’s not money or power.
Waking up in the morning, so excited about what you have to do that you literally fly out of the door.
It’s getting to work with people you love.
Success is connecting with the world and [...]
That’s right, A Million Miles In a Thousand Years: How I Learned Live a Better Story by Donald Miller, changed my life and I don’t think your life is immune to it’s powers either.
It’s a book about his life… about a book about [...]Continue Reading →
How do you respond when your husband tells you he wants to be a street artist?
My response included the following:
1. Don’t get arrested.
2. Don’t destroy someone’s property or cause a lot of work for anyone.
3. Say something good.
I know number two could be difficult to adhere to, but I think [...]Continue Reading →
I’ll never forget the girl who said it to me.
She was one of those super unique people who’s talents are extraordinarily strong and who’s weaknesses rival the strength of the talents. You look at her and say , “whoa, that girl could go places that most of us could never dream of and she’d [...]Continue Reading →
If you haven’t noticed, I say “we” a lot.
This is somewhat out of habit because my husband and I do spend 24 hours a day, 7 days a week together. But some of it is because it’s pretty much impossible to talk about my life journey as a solo enterprise. It’s done as a [...]Continue Reading →
No one wants to be “that guy”.
The guy you rolled your eyes at in your early 20′s while spewing explosive promises about how you would NEVER let yourself become like that. You were convinced you were different, that you saw the truth and that would keep you from ever allowing a house, a job, [...]Continue Reading →
