Why Forgiveness is the Greatest Gift You Can Give Yourself

Forgiveness. For many of us, it’s a big scary word. Whether we’re seeking it or giving it, it can be a hard thing to come by.

Note to Self: Choose Community Over Competition

Life has a funny way of bringing things into your life…and then bringing them back up again and again until you can’t ignore their existence. Oftentimes, something is put on your radar—maybe an idea or a thought—and then it keeps reappearing. Lately, I’ve been having one of those experiences. What’s on my mind and in […]

Can We Auto-Correct Humanity?

Did you know the average person spends FOUR YEARS of his life looking down at his cell phone? Yes. You heard that correctly. We are living in a tech-addicted, selfie-loving, blue-screen staring world. So many of us are more worried about connecting on social media than making real connections in person.

Boring is an Attitude

Leave it to Seth Godin to sprinkle little bits of insights onto each day. I recently read one of his posts in which he stated very simply: “Boring is an attitude, not the truth.
