December Goals

  Happy Monday, friends! ‘Tis the last month of 2017 – how did that happen?!

Learning About Shame from Brené Brown

It’s one of those days when I’ve just heard some of the most profound knowledge, and I feel like I’m jumping to share it because it’s that damn good.

What I Packed for a Fall Trip to Southern Spain

      Ever since I can remember, I’ve enjoyed traveling, longed for it even. Going to new places, meeting new people, experiencing different ways of life and cultures – it fills me up with happiness. Traveling no doubt makes me happier, but it also makes me feel more connected to people in general, which lets me feel empathy/sympathy for others more easily. In today’s world, I think traveling somewhere far away and connecting with local people there could be[Read more]
