wisdom from the 24-hour flu bug

Every year around this time in March, I get sick. This time, thankfully, it wasn’t as bad as last year’s 3-day bed/toilet-ridden adventure.

are you tired?

Tonight’s note will be quick – Because, I’ll be honest, I’m tired. In the midst of my excitement about developing this group and wanting to write up the perfect email to share with you today (since today is a very special day – you’ll see why), I realized that I was pushing a bit too […]

I have a question for you.

Do you have a dream? You know, the kind of dream that might feel a little far off from where you are now, the kind of dream that whispers to you “anything is possible,” even if your rational mind shushes it up all too soon. Do I know exactly what my dream is? Not really. […]
