02 Nov I Choose Love

In every moment of every day, and there are 20,000 moments in a given day, we are all making decisions, often below our levels of conscious awareness: is this moment a *potential* opportunity or is it a potential *threat*? Think about it: we stand in the present moment and predict the future. Enter: our negativity and confirmation biases, among others, and we have a shit show for our experience . . . which we can be more in control of when we build this muscle called mindfulness. Awareness. Choice. Abundance. All thoughts boil down to two roads: LOVE or FEAR. Serotonin or Cortisol. Which...

01 Oct Wow, 8 years.

Linkedin reminds me that it's my 8 year work anniversary of being a social entrepreneur in the positive psychology, mindfulness, wellbeing space. (We didn't even use the word wellbeing in 2008.)

08 Sep A Questionably Good Summer

I remember it being early July when a friend said, “I follow you on Facebook and it looks like you’re having an amazing summer.” Truth was – I wasn’t. I remember being in a space of real self-struggle, hard core. But apparently my appearance was otherwise, at least on social media. Then it made me remember just how fake all of this online stuff actually is. We see an image of someone else’s life and we make a story up about that person. Sometimes, the story makes us feel worse about ourselves –ugh-- as if to suggest that someone else’s life may be...
