Do you like quizzes? Because I love them. “What’s your greatest strength?” “What breed of dog are you?” “Who is your Disney character spirit animal?” I’ve taken them all, but when I stumbled on Gretchen Rubin’s The Four Tendencies quiz, it actually changed the game for me. Gretchen Rubin is a best-selling author, blogger, and speaker and, for all intents and purposes, THE Happiness Coach. The quiz I stumbled upon is the foundation of her work in the happiness field
The other day I bawled my eyes out watching a college football game on TV. To be fair, I’m the girl who cries at everything–Zillow commercials, the news, when I see elderly couples holding hands at the mall–but this time was different. I was watching the USC vs. Western Michigan football game with my husband when a player named Jake Olson took the field to snap the football for an extra point. If you haven’t heard of Jake, you’ll want
Can I tell you something I wish I’d been told forever ago? You’re an “ugly duckling”. But please don’t be offended by my use of the word “ugly”, because you’re definitely far from that!

We got talking and, wouldn’t you know it, she was super into personal development like me. As we got our coffee and decided to continue our conversation together, I realized I couldn’t have felt more at ease with the topics we were discussing. It was like I met
Put on your personal development pants, because we’re about to make mindset magic. What came first, the chicken or the egg? Truthfully I’m not super concerned with the answer, but it mimics the question I really want to ask you…consider that one your warm up! Real question: What comes first, joy or gratitude? The answer, according to research, is GRATITUDE. This goes against the common thought process we’re taught if you think about it. Typically, people think they need to
Truthfully, I can’t get my excited fingers to type this article fast enough! I’m so eager because I’m seriously shaking things up this week. You know the “Comments” section at the bottom of this page? I’m challenging you to use it. Consider this your permission slip to unapologetically brag on every single thing you love about yourself. From your height to your killer smile and everything in between, I’d LOVE to hear what makes you so awesome! I’m doing this
A family that slays together, stays together. And by slay I mean that as an all-encompassing idea: holding their heads high in any environment, speaking confidently about one another, and promoting a warm sense of self-worth starting from the inside out.
