Acknowledging ourselves.

I think sometimes we downplay progress. We’ll make one little choice and won’t think it’s a big deal so don’t acknowledge ourselves for it. It’s been coming up for me recently with the people I’m talking to. Whether it’s something as simple as choosing a slightly healthier snack, or showing up more present for a…

We don’t need a new you…

It might be a new year but that doesn’t mean we need a new you. I hate that message. It implies there is something wrong with the current you. This is a major problem in our society. Let’s tell people they are broken and sell them the cure for it. New year, new you –…
