I don’t know about you, but I STRUGGLE with making things happen. Perhaps we are never more acutely aware of this than during the season of short-lived resolutions. 

For example, I had an idea years ago about how to incorporate some of my certifications and work experi...

A couple weeks ago, I sat down in the living room waiting to watch an episode of one of my favorite shows, which may or may not have the word “housewives” in it. As I not-so-patiently waited for an episode of Meat Eater (one of my husband’s favorite shows) to end, I de...

There was a moment a few days ago, as I held my three-month-old son and told him I loved him, when I thought, “How could he possibly understand what I mean? How do we even learn what love is?”

- Les Misérables

I’ve been in Paris for 11 days now, and I’m finally writing for the first time since I got here. I could tell you about the fun, interesting language course I’ve been taking (but had to miss due to...

I once had a counseling professor who told our class, “The way you do anything is the way you do everything.” For the most part, I have seen the wisdom of this quote at play in my life ever since. For instance, if someone regularly leaves a large tip for servers, then...

"Don't ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody." – Holden Caulfield, The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

I can’t sleep. I think it’s the kind of Can’t Sleep that can only be caused by a big life change—the kind about which you’re not reall...

I wanted to write a letter to my Twenties, explaining how “it’s not you; it’s me.” I wanted to give this fabulous decade of my life some closure, some understanding. I didn’t want her to lay awake at night, reviewing our every moment spent together, wondering where she...
