On Extroverts

These days, we glorify the introvert. I get it. With societal pressure to be “more friendly, extroverted, and/or outgoing,” it must be exhausting to be an introvert. Believe me, I can relate more than you think I can. Because I’m an ambivert....

My Greatest Fear

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who...

Jared is really into all things military, as he has plans to be a Navy SEAL when he grows up. He just might do it, too. So, I told him about the USAF Academy and decided to take him to check it out. It’s so much fun to see his eyes light up when he talks about...
