“Before This and After This”… When Life Changes in a Moment

The events that changed my life are often not events at all, but rather a few months of “something” that nudged me and led to certain decisions. This would put me in the camp of, “CHANGE IS A PROCESS, NOT AN EVENT.” But I quite like the quote in the photo and gave it some […]

Amelia Cranson on Success and Love

You’ll want to sit down with a cup of tea and read this answer aloud to whoever’s in the room. Amelia is a well-spoken intellectual (who knew?!

Julie Stansell on Changing Her Mind

The first thing that comes to mind is that I wasn’t going to eat carbs […]

Manny Rodriguez on MMA, Yoga and Love

Aline stood out to me because she has genuine, overflowing love for humanity. If I didn’t know her, I’d think no one like her exists. Or that they’re […]
