I've been MIA from blogging and writing. Completely. There have been a lot of transitions happening lately and it has been throwing me off. All of which are incredible and I'm so grateful for, but I'm also trying to figure out my balance.

The other night I had the most incredible dream. I was walking on a very narrow and rocky path along the mountainside. I know there was someone else with me but I can’t remember who it was or if it was anyone I actually know.

Those were also signs to me that I needed out of those jobs. Now, don't … Continue reading Confession: I Enjoy Going to Work

Not setting specific goals, but identifying how you want to feel and deciding what you need to feel that way.

I've been reading Barbara Stanny's book Sacred Success and while I'm not finished with it, it has been eye-opening.
