All three holidays in one picture- Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. 🎃 🦃 🎄
Who says I can’t embrace the holidays for as long as possible?! I’m not sure who’s idea it was to cram the 3 best holidays into the last 2 months of the year. So this year, I decided to put out the “holiday” tree much earlier than usual. Right now, it’s the Halloween tree. Next week, it’ll be the fall Thanksgiving tree, and the in a month, it’ll be in its original Christmas tree glory. Do whatever makes you happy!! ☺️

I read somewhere that the most intelligent of people and the millionaires of the world read about 12 books per week.
In the past couple of months, I’ve been reading autobiographies and any book with the word “happiness” in its title. It’s been enlightening to say the least.

I’ve always loved my life like Audrey. I just finished Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” about women in the workplace and “Delivering Happiness” by Zappos’ Tony Hseih. Just picked up Coco Chanel (because… my favorite designer!) and a personal autographed book from Chef Jeff.
Honestly, can’t wait to start A Promised Land. No life is too small or too large. No story is irrelevant.

Got any book suggestions?

My mini and me. 💕

I love taking adventures! Traveling, taking tours, eating food recommended by locals, learning about culture. I’m THAT person that literally has an agenda for each day of vacation. But my favorite part of traveling right now is being able to take it with my littles and my family!! Then, we go back and look at pictures, make scrapbooks, and share these moments with others.

This week, I was just studying “narrative research”, a type of research methodology that studies life experiences in order to understand the meaning of the life experiences that define us. This #Repost from @chopra reminds us about #meaningmaking and being #purposedriven through our experiences.

If your life was a book, what would the title be? 📖⁠

Your story is uniquely yours. And you get to decide what happens next. Every day you are writing a new chapter that leads you down the path to your purpose. Move forward with the end in mind. 💛⁠

Be happy, stay healthy! 💕
.
My research continues on the science of happiness. One aspect that I truly believe is that being happy can contribute to better health. During a time when our health and safety us so important, we take our vitamins, check our vitals, watch for physical symptoms, and keep our bodies healthy. But we sometimes forget to also take care of our mental health. Stress and anxiety alone can make us feel physically sick, and this often gets misdiagnosed. So in addition to an apple a day, find your happy place everyday to keep the doctor away as well! Stay happy, stay healthy!

The ‘Women Supporting Women’ Challenge Has A Deeper Meaning Than You Think

I’ve been nominated a couple times for this challenge already. But before I do share a favorite selfie with a black and white filter 💁🏻‍♀️ , I wanted to share the real reason the #challengeaccepted #womenempowerment #womensupportingwomen movement was started. It’s not as beautiful as the beautiful pictures of all these wonderful women portray. It deals with femicide (that’s a thing?!) and the lives of women lost. This article explains it best.

Apparently it started in Turkey.

3) being a change agent
.

I had a final term presentation today on a praxis project that I had been doing for the past 8 weeks. The goal was to be the #changeagent where my actions directly contributed to change. I appreciate these types of projects because they are so fitting for everything that is going on in the world. It made me reflect on how any act can lead to change, as long as you act. Many people talk, but only a few actually act. Though my project was short term and focused on a specific population, it only inspired me to be a bigger change agent in our community. No act is too small or too unimportant.

Something as simple as some cheese, some meat, some candied walnuts, and a sprinkle of blueberries makes us happy. This is definitely not the vegan version. What’s in your board?? 😋

Something about fresh flower to bring life and brightness to my day. Roses were only $4.99 and greens were $2.99 @traderjoes. Placed #elegantly in my @tiffanyandco vase to make them look beautifully priceless.

I found out that a friend would do a drive by today as I was putting my Easter bouquet together. The girls quickly helped me put together an individual bouquet with paper from the very @traderjoes bag that they came in because I realized - Flowers are most beautiful when their beauty can be shared. 💕💐

Feeling Alone during Social Distancing

Yes, it’s been great to work from home or Netflix and chill for the last couple of weeks. But for anyone feeling a little down, a little confused, a little angry at the need to isolate and social distance, just wanted to remind you that it’s okay and normal to feel like this! Humans are social creatures of habit. All of a sudden, we are thrusted into an immediate directive to change our daily routine, stop being around others, and are told that our friends and families and ourselves are our biggest threat.
