live fully

I always cry on my birthday. And I really don’t even know why. And that’s hard to admit as someone as introspective as I am. I like to know myself. And I really can’t put a finger on this one.

Even in the summer, the weather here in the Pacific Northwest can be moody, unpredictable. In the grocery story, in the teller line-up at the bank, people shake their heads and say: “July!” mournfully.

Leaving Behind The Observer/Narrarator's Life

Leaving Behind
Memory Lane

Not long ago, I was cleaning out my closet and came across a container filled with pictures from the pre-digital camera phase of my life. There were pictures of my wedding, college graduation, honeymoon, first apartment, first house, my dogs in their puppy days, the second graders I taught, the kindergartners I taught, family gatherings, and life in general. A strange thought went through my mind as I strolled down memory lane with those photos. This is what life looked like back when I simply lived it.

Iron Man vs. Athena for CEO – Leadership Battle of the Sexes?

I recently saw Iron Man III with my family and it was a good time. Bad guys. Good guys. Destruction. Even a humble pie big enough to go around.

Is Equal Pay For Women Even Possible? (Can Pay Be Equal?)

There is no question that women and minorities are not at salary parity with white males in our business culture. They are not. But the prevailing myth that this is an evil plot to oppress us doesn't fly with me, because when you look under the covers of equal pay, things get much more complex. In sum, the current wage gap serves a purpose, both for businesses and for many women themselves; and in doing so, it's undermining the interests and needs of us all.

How I Quit My Day Job & Why I'm Taking A 6-Month Roadtrip

Road trip

By Elle Griffin

Only five years ago my husband and I imagined a life where we could come and go as we pleased, exploring the many beautiful parts of our country while visiting friends and family and changing the world on the way. Years of daydreaming have prepared us for this moment and finally, I am so proud to say that moment has arrived!

How do I know I’m on the right path?

Asking this question can send us into a knee-bending spiral of:
nail biting, insomnia-inducing, confusion stricken, bleary eyed unsure-ness.
