“People matter. Meaning matters. A good life is not a place at which you arrive, it’s a lens through which you see and create your world.”
— Jonathan Fields
“Send one scary email today. A scary email is sending an email to someone who has no reason to say yes to what I’m asking or who will certainly reject me. If you got one, send it. Start and start small.”

“How do you know the healing is working?
When you can breathe normally and think calmly during moments that used to make you feel tension. ”
“The only way to live your life is not to give a damn what anybody thinks. Decide what your values are, and then operate according to them. When you do that, it makes life so much easier.”

A big thank you Codecademy for sponsoring my blog and RSS Feed this week.
Are you working with or exploring the design field? Trying to figure out why your website just isn’t converting customers? Want to build layouts without spending hours learning prototyping tools? It’s time to learn web design.
Codecademy’s new Pro Intensive, Build Website UIs, gives you the knowledge you need to move visitors through your site, down your page and deeper into your funnel. In just 8 weeks, you’ll:
– Sharpen your existing knowledge of accessibility, typography, image, layout, navigation and more, making your websites more navigable and intuitive.
– Learn to interpret website analytics, create user personas, and conduct in-depth analysis to understand your users.

I just gasped seeing these collages by Rozenn Le Gall. Absolutely stunning.
I can not wait to experience Color Factory NYC, which opens TODAY. From the press sneak peaks I have seen on Instagram it’s an incredibly joyful experience! Giant size ball-pit anyone?
Color Factory is a collaborative interactive exhibit that debuted in San Francisco in August 2017. What was intended as a month-long run unexpectedly flourished as a celebration of color and creativity that lasted for another eight sold-out months.
FYI: You can’t buy tickets at the door, so make sure to buy them ahead of time here. (I Just bought mine! My kids can’t wait!)
Love yourself. Be clear on how you want to be treated. Know your worth. Always.
