For most of my 20’s and early 20’s, I had a relatively fast-paced life. I lived in a handful of major US cities, traveled frequently and spent my time soaking in a variety of people, places and cultures that were different than the rest. Those times were an education, although not the kind you’d get […]

Alfred Nobel was a man whose namesake we now attribute to the Nobel prize, which is composed of five separate prizes that are awardees annually to “those who, during the preceding year, have conferred the greatest benefit to humankind.” Nobel was the inventor of something many of us are quite familiar with; dynamite. As a […]

One of the things I’ve learned is most difficult in life is having to sit with yourself, by yourself. It’s hard, because when you’re alone to yourself and your thoughts, you’re left with the burden of being critically honest with yourself about your current state, and those reflections don’t always come easily. I recently had […]

Over three years ago, I was scrolling through a crypto group on a [unnamed] social network, and I found a post that stood out to me. It was posted by a man in Georgia, and he wrote: “I’m writing this from prison and have X amount to invest but know nothing about crypto. Where do […]

This weekend, I found myself caring for a sick toddler. Atlas came down with a cold-of-sorts this past week, and it’s left him badly congested and not quite his usual self, which has made caring for him a measure more difficult than usual; being homebound to ensure he recovers has made the days feel particularly […]

This morning, I woke up to a familiar fight – at least, a fight I’ve been having for the last few weeks; my daily battle with Alexa, who I tell “snooze” to at least 6-10 times before getting out of bed. Usually when this happens, it’s a sign that I’m going through a difficult time […]

Last year, I remember cleaning my kitchen counter when an idea hit me. It wasn’t an idea, as much as it was a revelation about how to view my life, and the success criteria in which I judged my everyday actions. “Shift from a currency mindset to a value-driven mindset.” I remember that idea hit […]

The older I get, the more I realize how much of life is a head game; how you think, feel and choose to see each scenario life throws at you will directly correspond to the outcome you receive. Every morning when I wake up, I feel a cornucopia of emotions. Sometimes I feel joy. Other […]

Earlier today, I was on the phone with my older brother and we were talking about different chapters of our lives. I noted there have been many distinct chapters in my life that each had a noticeable start and end – and I was thankful for both. Now, I find myself in a new chapter […]

Last year, I remember washing dishes in my kitchen when a single thought hit me. A challenge, as much as a question. “What would happen if I changed my mindset to be a value-based rather than currency-based?” It’s a question that really challenged me. Not to be mistaken for a money-driven mindset, I use the […]
