6 MINUTE READ It is incredibly rare that I ever have a “difficult time” getting to sleep. Although I didn’t exactly have a hard time getting to sleep last night, I found some good news right before lying down. And this good news made it feel like today was going to be Christmas Day. You know […]

Instead of understanding the mirror was broken, I thought I was broken.

Neuroscience Agrees With What My Intuition Had Been Saying For Years

6 MINUTE READ At the same time that I sit down to write today, I look out the window and see a squirrel with a black walnut. I’ll never see squirrels are black walnuts the same again after they came into my house on that auspicious day. (Check out the post I wrote about when […]

I Call B.S. on The Distinction Between “Needs” and “Wants”

Share Your Song and Shine!
