Monday Vibes: Do You Struggle With Comparisonitis?

Monday Vibes: Does Money Make You Squirm? (+ Two BIG Announcements)

Monday Vibes: Don’t Shy Away From Things That Piss You Off

Word of the Week: Healing Life Lesson: I have had the flu three times this past year. Three times! That is three times too many.

Monday Vibes: Why You Might Be Getting Sick

Word of the Week: Generosity Life Lesson: We need to talk about generosity. The holiday season can bring up a lot around the concept of giving, receiving, and what it means to be a “good” person: If someone gives me a gift, do I have to reciprocate at the exact same value? Do I need […]
