When it feels like gratitude isn’t “working”

Admittedly, a few years back, I was a bit underwhelmed by the whole gratitude concept.  I show thanks daily. I grew up saying prayers at bedtime. Our family collectively holds hands and recites thanks before dinner. And I write thank you notes aplenty. What more is there? Turns out, a lot. And it didn’t hit me […]

Making white space

Mondays are my favorite. The newness of a week. The promise of what’s to come – that which has been planned and the spontaneous moments – it all awaits.

Learnings from a recent staycation

I remember enjoying staycations as a child. They offered freedom to do the things I wanted (I didn’t just stay home and clean my room – I would go out and play with friends, mess around in the kitchen with simple projects, explore the neighborhood). Staycations even offered the opportunity to experience boredom (of course […]
