Celebrating The Spirit of Generosity (Plus a Giveaway!)

The holidays are finally here and, as they say, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. At the heart of the holiday spirit is the virtue of generosity. It’s truly the season for giving and I’m sure you’ve heard the age old saying, “It’s far better to give than to receive.” I’ve always felt a great joy in giving to others. Whether it’s cooking a meal for my family, helping a friend solve a problem or surprising someone I love with something they casually mentioned they needed, I get a major dose of the warm and fuzzy feels by …

One Nook Two Ways

So often we only focus on the obvious without stopping to recognize all of the little moments in life that we take for granted yet are very much worth appreciating. I recently came across this article  by life coach Michael Hyatt which talks about how a simple shift in your choice of vocabulary can change our whole mindset around gratitude and make us happier, more productive people. Even when we’re fortunate to have incredible opportunities, out …
