On a beautiful Sunday morning after a fresh snowfall, I find myself out in my sacred sanctuary otherwise known as Central Park. The sky is blue, the air is crisp, it is cold, but not bitterly cold. Heaven.
After a discussion with a friend about my new fitness routines and experimentation, she suggested I try to go a little farther in my run. While my wonderful mind immediately went to the "Oh no, that's impossible", I reflected and thought WHY NOT? If I just go a little bit farther, it wouldn't be that bad.
I had been running on and off and doing one lap around the reservoir - a total of 1.6 miles. Each time I got to the end, I was spent, believing there was nothing more in me.
Today, that path was inaccessible, so I took to the main road where there were the big hills ( well known to anyone who has ever trained for marathons in Central Park!) . I decided i was going to go farther - the sheer fact I was on the road would take me farther because I would have to get...
LETTERS OF LOVE FOR EVERY DAY
We have no guarantees that we will have "tomorrow" or someday to tell someone how much we appreciate them.
What if you could let people know how much you care about them, how much they have impacted your life, or just how truly awesome they are! What if one of those people also included you? My gift to you is this simple guide on how to develop a practice of being a ripple of love and gratitude in the world! Enjoy xo
There's something magical about earning a trip just because you helped some people do things differently in their life. What a beautiful way to start the year. I am forever grateful to the co-founders of the company I have partnered with - for their vision and their heart and soul. When you can go from business brainstorming to your first karaoke when you don't know the tune of the song to fine dining to having 100 trees planted for your earned spot on the cruise to creating an appreciation tunnel and surprising strangers with kindness to dancing to morning meditation at the back of the ship to yoga to celebrating each other to laughter til your sides hurt to vulnerability to firsts to connection.
This is what "business" gets to be in this incredible moment in history. I am grateful for the partners I get to call friends - beautiful people with souls and hearts yearning to impact their own lives, their communities and the world. #grateful

You don’t know when they are going to happen. Magic and miracles are not planned. They are a result of seemingly random occurrences but are they really? Or are they divinely orchestrated?
It was a beautiful morning, not unlike some of the others I had been privileged to experience in the last week. The “morning ritual” consisted of rising early and reading, then hopping on my bike for a short spin. The wind in my hair as I went down the hill with feet off the pedals, like I had done years ago, rejuvenated my soul. At the beach I brought my coffee and towel to the empty shore and plopped down to begin my meditation practice, a new one that had been introduced at the Field of Abundance retreat in July.
At that time of day there are no sounds but the rhythmic movement of the waves and the random seagull. As I finish my meditation and dive into the beckoning water, I see no separation from where the sky ends and where the sea starts – it is...
