We all know that things change and that, for most part, we aren’t the biggest fans of it. But, just as things change, there is a ton that stays the same. Fortunately, for all of us, the sun rises and sets each and every day. Our bellies love that we have Taco Tuesdays every week and pumpkin spiced lattes every autumn.
Life is not a zero-sum game. Meaning for every winner, there doesn’t need to be a loser. This binary way of thinking is anchored in scarcity… that there isn’t enough to go around for everyone. Maybe this is what inspires the “we all need to […]
Change is inevitable. That doesn’t mean we necessarily like it, however it does suggest that we should, because it isn’t going anywhere. But why don’t we like change? Is it because we are creatures of habit? Is it because it conjures feelings of loss? Or […]

What does it mean to truly be a friend? Or, said differently, how would you define what a friend really is? We live in an interesting time where we are more connected than ever before through technology, yet we feel less connection and community in […]
For most of us, fears are a normal part of being alive. In some cases, our fears are falsely created in our heads and the acronym “False Evidence Appearing Real” is the perfect way to understand and overcome them. However, in other cases, our fears […]
