New Month Ritual

Personally, I like to treat the last day of every month as a “New Month’s Eve” kind of like a mini New Year’s Eve. It’s an opportunity for me to ask similar questions to what I reflected on during New Year’s and set new goals for the coming month. In case you forgot what those questions are here’s a reminder (change the month accordingly going forward). 1. What are your best memories of  MONTH? What are you grateful for? 2. Assess your MONTH goals? What were they? How did they go? 3. What were your biggest lessons learned in MONTH?Continue Reading >>

Valentine’s Day Confession

  Hello love. How’s it going? Yesterday was February 14th and many people around the world celebrated “love day” and today… what happened today? Did the love go away? Likely not. I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t always been a huge fan of Valentine’s day and it had nothing to do with whether I was single or coupled up. I just thought it was another Hallmark holiday.

  I’ve been back one week now from months of traveling in Europe and slowly settling into bay area life. I say slowly because I’m trying to hold on or better said adopt the traveler’s mind into my daily life. Which of course begs the question – What is the traveler’s mind?

I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know how I was goingContinue Reading >>

How to slow down time and increase happiness

  Happy New Year! I know it feels like ages ago that we celebrated the clock striking midnight but actually it was just at the beginning of this very month. And Lunar New Year was just a few days ago… so in my books it’s still proper to wish you a Happy New Year. As you’ve probably experienced for yourself time moves quickly when we’re consumed in our daily lives, and often it seems that a year has gone by in a blink. This is why it’s extremely important to schedule daily, weekly, and monthly check-ins with yourself. You don’t needContinue Reading >>

You can’t get where you want to go, if you don’t know where you are.

It’s here, the last day of the year. Whether you thought the year went by fast or slow, the reality is that it went by. Time truly is the most precious commodity because we cannot buy it, nor can we store it… therefore it’s important to live it fully. One way to live life fully is by taking time to assess how you’ve lived life. When I was in college studying statistics and doing research one of my professors said the following to describe the importance of data: “You can’t get where you want to go if you don’t knowContinue Reading >>
