You are worth loving

You are good enough. You are worth loving. It’s been about four years since I heard those words in the safety and seclusion of my therapist’s office. Simple statements, but enough to unleash the newest wave of tears. I cried because I wasn’t sure I believed it. I cried because if I could, my healing would begin. I was in the midst of a messy divorce, my...

How resetting my patterns helped redefine my dream

I was going to be a famous singer, make $1 million by 26 years old, and use that $1 million dollars to build a resort like Atlantis Resort where people could experience ultimate fun. This was my dream that started when I was about 8. Just to be clear, Atlantis actually cost $800 million to build. I point this out because I was...

Finding my ‘reset’ switch

Today is a beautiful day. I’m sitting in a café, sipping coffee, and watching the people around me live their lives. I can’t stop smiling. Six months ago I realized what I wanted out of life. I came up with a personal manifesto that I still think about on the daily. Live this life. Experience every moment. Challenge yourself. Never lose sight...

Why giving experiences makes us happy

During holidays and special occasions, the pressure is on for finding and giving just the right gift. How do you pick the perfect item for someone that they will cherish? How do you make the people you care about happy on those important occasions?

Girl, get your roots done

Frumpcakes and a punch in my perspective

GUEST POST BY LACI CHAPMAN The night before my eldest son’s 4th birthday, I found myself making rainbow cupcakes with the “help” of an almost-4-year-old, a 22-month-old, and a 5-month-old. I so badly wanted to bail. I prayed a silent prayer that my 4 year old would forget. He didn’t. I had promised we could make them before I knew my husband would...

A visit to Holy Cross Anglican Primary School

I didn’t know it existed. My mom made a point to go beyond the resorts and sparkling blue pools and open my eyes to the world. I remember...

Vulnerability is _________? Did you fill in the blank with a positive or negative word? Statistically most of you chose a negative word. Why? Why is being vulnerable considered negative? A weakness to be shamed and feared? If you’re like me, even mentioning the word makes you shudder and scowl. Vulnerable: capable of being physically or emotionally wounded, open to attack or...
