Comparison can turn friends into adversaries. -Frank Sonnenberg Morning, lovelies! Hopefully you're having a lovely day and great start to your week. I'll be honest, my weekend and my Monday were rough. I had a pretty gnarly headache. Not a migraine, thankfully, but this nagging pain going right across the back of my skull and … Continue reading The Comparison Game
Oh, crap. I quit my job. Now I’m a full-time author.
“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on … Continue reading Oh, crap. I quit my job.

Aila Loves The Snow, and other stuff!
When it snows in the South, it's a big deal, y'all. My Northern friends get a good laugh at us because it's such a big to do around here.

The Success Mindset For Introverts
"That's the thing about introverts; we wear our chaos on the inside where no one can see it." -Michaela Chung We're two weeks into the new year! How are you doing on your goals so far?
