I used to think of life purpose as some great big grand scheme for life, something we spend our whole life chasing after. Daunting for sure. At times overwhelming.
Then one day I realized that life purpose was a series of small, fleeting events, rather than one great big span of life. Bite size in fact.
It’s the one thing we love doing, time and time again. Over and over. Day by day. It’s the one thing we love sharing. Moment to moment. Breath by breath.

What make’s your heart sing?
For me it’s making the person right in front of me (no matter who they are) feel like the most important person in the world.
Engaging fully, completely, in every conversation I have.
No matter how long. No matter how short.
REFLECTION QUESTION: What makes you come alive?
I love making someone’s day brighter.
Whether it be lifting the spirits of my psychology students. Encouraging a barista at Starbucks. Smiling at runners on the trail. Leaving my sister an uplifting voicemail. Opening the door for someone at the grocery store. Listening intently to my husband at the end of a long day. (Key: No cell phone in hand)
Mission for this Moment
Because you matter.
More than you’ll ever know.
Simple Soulful Practice
How I Light Up My Day
Sometimes we need a quick, fun, and easy way to elevate our mood. Suggestion: Angel Cards. A simple, soulful practice that takes a (bite sized) moment. Now my friends ask me to bring angels cards to all our coffee talks. Even if we’re sitting 8 feet apart! These light-hearted cards guarantee a shift UP in conversation. From the mundane to the magical.
What lights your way today?
