why forgiveness is the greatest gift you can give yourself

Why Forgiveness is the Greatest Gift You Can Give Yourself

April 11, 2016

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. And while it’s not the most popular of topics, I’m learning that forgiving is a key component to living our best lives. I’ve been thinking about forgiveness a lot lately. Specifically, […]


Your Outlook On Life is a Direct Reflection of How Much You Like Yourself

Recently, I was going through some of my older writings and poems and came across a quote that I saw on a New York City train a few years ago. Your outlook on life is a direct reflection of how much you like yourself. This got me thinking about all of the variables that impact someone’s view on life. […]

The Struggle to Stay Authentic on Social Media

March 29, 2016

Filters. Most of social media can be summed up in that one word. While many of us try to find the perfect combination of contrast, brightness, fade, and blur to best show off our strategically-placed snap, the filters go far beyond choosing Mayfair over X-Pro II. The filters start before we even decide to post. For most […]


why you need to give yourself permission to be happy

Over the last week, I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. I’ve been actively searching for wisdom and fulfillment, both external and internal, for a few years now. Ever since my self-proclaimed “quarter-life crisis,” I’ve started a journey of consciously trying to live out my truth and empower others to do the same. (hence the […]

What Leo Winning an Oscar Teaches Us About Success

February 29, 2016

Leonardo DiCaprio finally won his first Oscar last night. After 6 Oscar nominations and countless times that he (arguably) should have won this esteemed award, he finally received the recognition he deserved. And while we’ve never seen people celebrate another’s success much like the internet did last night, there’s a few things we can learn […]


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?

January 21, 2016

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. It’s easier to text all day than […]


what makes us happy

As one year ends and another commences, most of us find ourselves reflecting and goal setting for 2016. Say what you want about this process but personally I love it. While I do believe it should be done more than once, the last few days of each year gives us no excuse NOT to do […]

And considering our Christmas list consisted of about 10 more, we don’t see it stopping any time soon 🙂 We are big believers that education shouldn’t stop […]


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. Possibility is where you decide it is.” I remember in high school forming this belief that I should never be bored. I had […]
