My mother died in 2009. It was an incredibly difficult time in my life, it goes without saying.

I do not have a daily routine. I no longer need one. I do, however, have habits on which I focus every day. Don’t get me wrong, I used to have a daily routine – before I quit my six-figure job to pursue my passions and live a more meaningful life. And I hated that routine. […]

I always talk about goals I want to make to be healthier but never seem to get around to them. I always marvel at blogs of healthy and fit girls that just seem to glow with happiness. I start to eat healthier or work out more for a few days then always end up getting […]

I was profoundly moved by the story that Peter Russell told me when I interviewed him for my book, Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything. Here is an excerpt from his story, beginning with his bio. I’ve never gone swimming with dolphins, but now I’d like to! Peter Russell is a world-renowned futurist and fellow […]
