Uplift Women

It's a special Motivation Monday when I get to introduce this lady who's like a sister to me.

Classic. All the reviews you've read about this masterpiece are correct. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is daring, simplistically complex (you know if you know), funny; the kind of read that causes the rare occurrence of your heart and mind and gut to Ahaa! all together at a universal truth you had only shallowly conceived prior … Continue reading The Alchemist

The Slow Way

It's the simple pleasures, isn't it? One of my favorite little joys is opening a Yogi tea bag, plopping the leaves into steaming water, and following the string to cup the tag and read the short quote printed on one side.
