  • Why my carry-on bag has me questioning life

    I recently returned from a 17-day adventure in Paris. And I can’t stop thinking about my carry-on. I took a compact 20″ hardside spinner that fit with room to spare in the overhead.

  • Do you feel like you’re enough?

    I had an epiphany of sort a few days ago: I am enough. I’ve read about feeling enough. Heard about it. Wanted it. But I’ve never felt it. Not truly. Not through and through.

  • Do you live in the land of lack?

    Dearth. Deficit. Deprivation. Deficiency. There’s never enough. Enough time. Enough money. Enough connections. Enough knowledge. I’ve encountered this scarcity mentality a lot lately. In fact, oxymoron that it is: Some people seem to thrive on lacking something. They seem to have a surplus of deficiency. What’s your filter? It’s one thing to be aware of a gap […]
