Women's March 2018

We are huge fans of Glennon Doyle, author of Love Warrior, and love her reflection on this year's Women's March in Washington D.C.

"Last year, we marched. This year, we run.

Last year, we proved to the world that women — united, intersectional and activated — make history.

This year, we prove that women — united, intersectional, and elected — make

What are you marching for today? For whom are you changing the world this year?" 

How are you creating change this year and supporting women's rights? It doesn't need to be complicated. You can simply be the best version of yourself and support the females around you and lift them up when needed. Remove competitive thoughts and words from your vocabulary. Learn to love and be yourself completely as you are and accept your flaws so you, in turn, can care for others.

Males can be the best fathers and teach their sons how to show respect to women. For their daughters, demonstrate how they deserve to be treated and support them and their endeavors fully.

3 Tools to Make Your Holiday Season More Full of Joy!

It is the most wonderful time of the year....right? It certainly is full of an abundance of wonderful things and events but it is also one of the busiest and financially stressful times of the year for many. To combat all of the "To-do" lists and overwhelm, here are three tools to help. 

1. Watch this:

Even with the holidays, there can be too much of a good thing and over-scheduling can happen without us being conscious of it. Be mindful of your time and learn how to say no. Also don't beat yourself up for making things easier for yourself...instead, embrace the opportunities. Need to have 2 dozen cookies for your child's classroom tomorrow? Go ahead and purchase store-bought if you don't have time to spend in the kitchen. Hosting a big holiday gathering? It is ok to not get out all of the fancy plates and keep things simplistic.

What matters most this season is the quality time with those we love....not the details that we often give ourselves a hard time about.

Looking for the Good, Acts of Kindness are all Around Us.

As Martin Luther King said, 

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."


This is one of our favorite quotes of the many that we share. In times like these especially, we need to be reminded that there is so much good in the world and around us. These small acts of kindness add up and compound to create so much light. 

The Ellen DeGeneres Show has partnered with Cheerios to spread Ellen’s message of being kind to one another. Ellen and Cheerios are encouraging people around the world to participate in one million acts of good.

To share their acts of good, viewers can submit photos and write-in stories at this link or use #GoodGoesRound on social media.

Below are a few examples of the acts of kindness shared. Remember, these acts are going on every day, all around us. Be a part of the good, and take part of acts of kindness at home, in your workplace and when you are out and about.
