“The more you give, the more you get back,” I heard myself saying to my 8-year-old son in the back seat of our Honda CRV. He was whining about having to share a few pieces of his Doritos with me. Yes, I nibble on my children’s food but that’s not the point. We can talk about that part at a later date. My point is that the secret sauce to life is to give generously especially if you are as blessed as most everyday normal people are. Let’s face it: first world problems are real problems but in the light of what the rest of the world is faced with, we, in the western world, complain a tad too much.READ MORE >

It always catches me by surprise what one year can do—let alone an entire lifetime. Honestly, these sort of soul-shifting transformations are the result of setting intentions and carefully crafting your reality. This rang true for me a million times over this year.

It’s no secret that I’ve been separated for a very long time now. In the beginning of this year, things with my ex weren’t great (to say the least). As we continued with our parental and financial negotiations, our relationship hit an all time low, and I was beside myself as I struggled and fought with a man I once really, really loved.
