I’m not taken. I’m in a relationship, but I’m not taken. He doesn’t steal me away from any dreams. He doesn’t tell me who I can and can’t be friends with, or who I can and can’t cultivate myself to be. He didn’t pry me out of my own life to be in a relationship with […]
Our lives are sort of like quilts. They start out small (as do we), and as we grow, our lives (er, quilts…) follow suit. Initially, your Quilt will be comprised of the things you are born with. There will be pictures of your ancestors and snippets from the culture that raised generations before you – […]
Hey folks. I’m not feeling so good about myself today. It’s something I know you’ve felt, too – a classic case of comparing myself to others based on the things that they choose to share with the world on social media. I want to talk about that a little bit with you, because no one […]
Instagram feeds are piled up and overflowing with idealistic, and/or perfectly timed, photo-shopped images that embody a false sense of the perfection of life and make us yearn for it.
Not that the perfection of life doesn’t exist, but it exists in a very different sense – one derived from a place of balance, of yin and yang, of problems and solutions.

Do you feel it? The nostalgia of being mesmerized by sunsets and falling leaves and birds chirping. You might have always opened the window in the morning, or smiled at the first snowfall of the season. I think we all collected rocks for the simple fact that they are pretty.
I don’t know much about life. As a matter of fact, not a whole lot of us do. We just so happen to be wrong about things – a lot of the time. I’m not even sure if we’re ever 100% “right” about anything. One thing I think I know is this: I have a […]
Work is really important for a few reasons. Firstly, it takes care of our money, which covers our basic human needs (such as food, water, and shelter). Without work, how would we pay for these things? Secondly, your work life can either help (or impede upon) certain areas of self-development. Primarily, it can give you […]
