Thank you so much for posting this! I love that you are such an amazing sister and I’m so glad that she’s better now!
I think it’s hilarious that people are signing a petition for them to change things. I have a good plan; how about never buying clothes from them again, if you have a problem; and support an awesome yoga brand that gives back to the community and is sustainable. Ridiculous.
WHABAM! This is all very true; although I don’t eat pizza pockets. However, fresh pizza makes me very very happy inside, and yes, I’m so with you on that water thing. Thanks for this! 🙂
-You can be funny and kind or funny and cruel. The second one is easier, but the first one is worth it.
-Dip the french fry in the Frosty. Go on, try it.
-Habit is a powerful force we forget about until it’s turned against us. Be careful which ones you create.
-You will remember the most embarrassing crap you do in your life forever and in perfect clarity. Everyone else will remember the kindest things you do. It all comes out in the wash.
-If you’re doing a remote podcast, it’s worth it to record audio locally and mix it together. Trust me on this one.
-You’re the only one who can let go of your grudges. It’s worth it, I promise. They’re not doing you any good.
-Doing the good, brave, kind things can feel silly if you let your internal critic get in the way. Reminder: No…

I really appreciate this post! Will definitely be posting a link to this on my Facebook page as well, so that others can spread the word. I find it totally insane that this has barely been publicized where I am, in comparison to other things. Thanks again!
Anyone who has ever worked on ships has, without a doubt, worked with dozens of Filipinos. They are our co-workers, our friends and our family.
Over the weekend our ship life paisanos were faced the devastating destruction of their home. One of the strongest storms in recorded history, Typhoon Haiyan, killed an estimated 10,000 people. To put that number into perspective combine the casualties from Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy and 9/11… and double it.
Between managers, A/V crew and random friendly faces in the staff bar, I have a long list of Filipinos who hold a special place in my heart. So as I watched the death toll climb as Typhoon Haiyan ripped through the islands, I held my breath and prayed for my friends.
I have sent messages to some and not heard back from any. So what can I do to help while I wait to hear from…

Love this post! Mental health is invaluable.
I don’t typically write serious subject matter on this blog, but a few months ago I wrote about my desire to seek therapy for a myriad of issues I’ve faced for years. A woman of my word, I began going almost immediately.
I don’t like talking to friends or family members about my problems so the idea of talking to a stranger about my innermost thoughts really put me off. Luckily, I found someone totally aces on the first try, and she has taught me some very valuable things in our time together so far.
How you feel about yourself is not a democracy.
I would never have described myself as a “people pleaser” until I started seeing her. Now I can’t believe I never saw it before. In every facet of my life I am living for someone else: at work, in relationships, with my family, among friends. No…

This is very much in line with all of my beliefs. Doubt is the worst, however you can smother it out with love and gratitude. Thank you for this! Please check out my blog as well! 😀
Doubt. I would cure … doubt.
Because doubt is the thing that keeps us from trying.
Doubt is the thing that keeps us from achieving.
Doubt is the thing that keeps us from believing that the most amazing things can happen.
Doubt is the thing that holds us back and makes us … miss the magic.
My girl-child just started reading a book in her third grade class about the great Shoeless Joe Jackson.
So. Without a doubt, we had to watch Field of Dreams.
Field of Dreams. A story about a farmer. A farmer who believed. A farmer who believed and built a baseball field. A baseball field in the middle of a corn field.
And then watched as his childhood heroes stepped through the stalks and played a game.
