Happy Brand Spanking New 2018!  

I love the opportunity to reflect on what I did last year--to be proud and humbled by the amazing experiences--as well as to transition into opening myself up to something new this year.

It's a chance to start out fresh and take deci...

I have a break between classes in Paris, so we hop on the Metro, get off at École Militaire, and walk up the park to the Eiffel Tower.

Luckily we have sunny skies! It was supposed to be cloudy and rainy. 

On my 6th trip to Paris, I'm reminded of all...

What do you believe you are capable of?

I bet you are capable of more than you think.

I recently watched an inspiring Tony Robbins video. He said that each of us has a belief in our mind about our potential—about what we can do, what we are capable of—and that it is self...

As we grow up, we are trained to be more restrained, more serious, more "adult." And while at the office this is helpful, for our spirits and personal lives it is so stifling. There is a way to take care of what needs to be taken care of, without having to be so stiff....

I’ve been on the language learning track for a while. It all started with Spanish, which was more of a lackadaisical wandering through vocabulary and tenses that never seemed to sink in. French was a slow trot over some of those hurdles, but somehow I felt like the bra...

I recently read a few pages from the book Art of Traveling by Alain de Botton. He describes how we view our worlds when we are traveling versus when we are “at home” or in a routine. I started thinking about how my own perspective on life differs...

Deep down, I always know when I'm slumping—when I'm running, hiding, or not being true to myself. I think secretly we all know, whether we are willing to admit it to ourselves or not.

It's easier for me to deny, ignore and zone out with Netflix, than to admit to myself...

I have an obsession with being a local. Wherever I travel, I want to blend in so well that I could be mistaken for a local. As you can imagine, that works well in some countries, and not at all in others! When I’m in Italy, it’s a little easier since I speak Italian an...

 Well, I'm finally doing it. Switching over from Wordpress to Wix. I've been feeling the desire for a place of inspiration, something that I can come and read every day that will inspire and uplift me. Get me on track for the day. Get my mind right. Motivate me. And so...
