Losing Yourself In A World Full of Constant Communication

In the last 2 weeks, I heard three different people say to me: "You remembered that? Wow, most people don't remember such small details about my life. I'm impressed!" My immediate reaction was to say: "Oh, why not?" It seemed almost absurd to me that someone would forget such interesting details about another person's life. …

How to Love (a Friend) – A Reflection #Relationships #Love

This past week, I learned a key lesson about myself and about what it means to love someone.

Make Everyday a Thanksgiving Day (Grateful for Great Friends)

Finally, a time to sit down and reflect on the past 8-12 months. Not that I condone reflecting once a year - absolutely not! But aside from writing in a daily gratitude journal, I've learned the importance of regular reflection. Sometimes reflection is personal. (More often than not, it is.) Many times, you'll have the …

The Value of Friendship

The title seems to set the tone for a very nostalgic, philosophical conversation about relationships and the value of creating lifelong, sustainable relationships... NOT. (haha. I hate to burst your bubble.) Well, it might. Let's see where I go with this post. Three weeks ago, I had quite the eventful day. It started with a …
