I See You. Three Sweet Words.

We see people everyday – their hair, their clothes, their faces, their shoes (maybe). We sometimes make quick judgements – he wears a suit, drives that car, works downtown so he must be X kind of person. She has red hair so she must be X kind of person. He works a 9-5 so he… Continue reading I See You. Three Sweet Words.

  This has been one heck of year full of world travel, meaningful connection, heart ache, super highs, super lows, witnessing extreme poverty and also extreme wealth, new friends, a lotta laughs and face-hurting smiles.

I’ve had the absolute privilege of learning about and experiencing a number of different cultures during my travels over the last few months and a few years ago as well. Even in the company I am currently working at, Mindvalley in Malaysia, there are 35+ countries represented in the office alone! While I love learning about the differences between cultures, I equally love observing and… Continue reading We all smile in the same language: Illustrated through an almost total face plant

In fact, I consider myself… Continue reading To all the “Dad’s” in my life, thank you.

14-day complain-free challenge

I’ve been noticing this alot lately – how quickly we are (as a society) to complain. It’s often the habitual way we start a conversation – ugh, it’s raining again, my umbrella broke, the bus was late, that driver cut me off today, I was late for work – my alarm didn’t go off, my cell phone service sucks, my co-worker did…, it’s monday… Continue reading 14-day complain-free challenge
