10% Happier by Dan Harris (Amazon.com)

This past week, I finished up reading 10% Happier by Dan Harris. As I’ve previously mentioned, I am in the works of planning my 2015 Adventure to Bliss.

Although, I’ll be honest, I’m not sure when I last read (for pleasure) that much… maybe… Read more »

As I was perusing through Stephen Covey’s, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People I came across a piece of advice: As humans, we are a response-able people. The idea really resonated with me. As a human, I have the ability to respond. And I can respond however I please. I have days where my hair goes in all different directions, I get stuck in a traffic jam, interact with unpleasant company and on top of all that, I don’t… Read more »

However, I also feel myself sometimes drained with the constant badgering of technology – whether it be my email, texts,… Read more »

Ashlee as a Flapper on Hallow's Eve

Life Update Oh, hello there! Long time, no write! Disappearance If you were wondering about my disappearance for the last few weeks – don’t worry.

Time and separation do funny things to a person though. Because here I am, typing away with a smile on my… Read more »
