Why Self Esteem is Overrated

Today, I’m curled up with a cup of Yogi Tea and my computer learning as much about Self Love as I can fit into one day.  I promised you a month of “Showing Love” in honor of Valentine’s Day, so I’m diving in. First topic: Self Esteem. It’s one of those things we all hold on to like a lifeboat. Telling ourselves and others that we gotta have it.  But, we have a tendency to go overboard. With everything. But specifically with this concept. Let’s look at the definition: i-love-myself (more…)

Fulfilling My Purpose: 8 Blogs For Ambitious Young Professionals

Last week, I met with a super sassy and sweet blogger/coach. I wanted advice on blogging from someone who has done it successful and could help me find a path that is genuine to me.ambition

The goal of my practice is to “Inspire Young Professionals to Live More Authentic and Productive Lives.” But I have a responsibility to do more that just “inspire”. (more…)

The First 5 Things I LOVE about Lena Dunham

Last night, I watched the Golden Globes. I normally don’t because I’m really not a big movie/tv person, but I happened to have a friend/client that was working backstage, so that kinda piqued my interest. And I’m glad it did, because I got to see Lena Dunham take home two awards for the HBO show GIRLS. If you haven’t seen it, you should give it a try. It’s one on a very short list of reasons I regret not having cable in my new apartment.

So, here are the first 5, of soooo many reasons why I’m a huge fan of Lena Dunham and Girls: (more…)

Poking the Hive

Recently, I found myself doing something completely illogical. It was as if I had suddenly come across a huge bee hive, and was overwhelmed with the desire to go closer, take a look inside. I couldn’t help but put my hand on it to understand how it works. Let’s just say that this turned into a precarious situation, where I felt like a curious but injured bear after poking a bee hive.

Freezing A Moment in Time

“Time will never stand still and those moments that bring us such joy become memories in an instant. To capture such a moment and record it forever is truly monumental.”

Yesterday, while spending some time at my mom’s house, I peeked into the rooms of my little brother and sister. Each has a wall full of pictures that brought back a barrage of memories. In my family, pictures are a big deal. At any given holiday meal, with my 16 aunts and uncles and over 50 cousins, someone will inevitably mention a picture they had and who they think may have removed it from their collection. So, looking at these pictures in my mom’s house, I had to fight back the urge to take a few off the wall.

Why are pictures such a big deal to us? Because that little slip of paper holds the memories of days gone by, of love ones lost and good times we’ve had. And with a family this large, we’ve had plenty. So I’d have to say by far that pictures, are my very favorite things. (more…)
