I'm a big believer that it is much easier to turn a terrible draft into something amazing versus trying to make something good out of a blank screen. And I'm not saying this is a simple thing to do; I still struggle with powering through writer's block. It's a practice. (less)

A Little Dose of Happiness Ep. 09: Releasing Control & Letting the Universe Do Its Thing

A new episode of my podcast A Little Dose of Happiness is now live. In this episode I dive into the importance of letting go of our need to control. When we’re in a crisis, we cling on to what we think will be best for us, and rule out all other possibilities. This limits us from getting what we may actually need. I know it’s scary, but try releasing some control over your desired outcome.

A Fantastic Mess of Everything by Beck Medina
"More like a 3.5 than a 3.
At first it didn't grab my attention, and it took a long time for me to go back to it and keep reading, but when I did, I finished it in a few hours. It's very light, easy to read and perfect if you are looking for a YA r..." Read more of this review »

Herman Melville
“Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off - then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.”
Herman Melville, Moby-Dick

“I don’t want just words. If that’s all you have for me, you’d better go”
