“I’ve read a ton of books about following my heart, but I don’t know how to do it,” I shared at a retreat I attended last fall.  There were some chuckles in the room, and I wasn’t sure why everyone thought it was so funny.  I was serious. I wanted someone to show me how […]

It happens all the time. I go from a beautiful moment where I notice the synchronicity and depth of how wonderful Life is to a rage implosion where I just can’t. I’ve been in perpetual scoff mode anytime I go on Instagram or Facebook. I get that these glorious memes once made me ponder greater […]
