march: mostly vegan herehereherehere and here.
april: wake up before the sun five days a week here, here and here
may: exercise curiosity here, here and here 


june: daily gratitude and generosity


struggle is an integral part of the human experience. we all withstand bouts of pain and disappointment. i often talk with clients about how rejection and heartbreak are gifts in this life. 

there is not a recipe for recovery. 
no guidebook to recoup courage.
no compass for salvaging strength. 

i am, however, here to offer a life hack. i can't assure many things in life, but i can guarantee two actions that will commence the battle. these intentions are crucial to getting back on our feet. 
the 2 g's, generosity and gratitude. 
this blog originated in 2011 as a tool to practice gratitude. when i am conscious about gratitude, my perspective shifts. i also know when i am generous i feel more fulfilled and connected to others. 

so here is what i plan to do. i hope you will join me. 

materials list:
your brilliant brain
a pencil or pen
a piece of paper

every day *at a consistent time* i plan to make a list of 3 things that are going well in my life. a brighter perspective will emerge. some days we may have to dig deep. some days we may only be able to write that we got through the day, ate something and got ready for bed. that's ok. keep going. when we see the beauty in life, the beauty grows. in june i am going to practice daily gratitude. 
i also admire generosity. i identify as a generous person, but i could do more. it brings me happiness. generosity comes in all forms. 

materials list: 
time
energy
thoughtful gestures
sacrifice

i began tonight by giving my southern gent the larger piece of corn-on-the-cob. 
off to a great start!
