August 2022 Favorites

Greetings! Another month has gone, “poof!” and it floats away into the sky. This month, it felt like I read 20 books at the same time. Bad news about the economy and tons of primary info seemed to be front and center, throughout August (midterm elections approach, slow and steady). It was a month ofContinue reading “August 2022 Favorites”

May 2022 Favorites

Hello! We have come to the end of my favorite month– and what a month it has been. I binged the Johnny Depp v Amber Heard trial. My thoughts on it were the #1 post of the month. As I review this, we are still on verdict watch. I enjoyed watching videos from the attorneysContinue reading “May 2022 Favorites”

February 2022 Favorites

By: Gabriela Yareliz It has been a rollercoaster of a month. It was warm on some days and bitterly cold on others. We did our Adele series. There is war. Apparently, Putin eliminated the pandemic by invading Ukraine (thanks, Putin?). Inflation was through the roof even prior to the Ukraine-Russia conflict (thanks, Biden?). There isContinue reading “February 2022 Favorites”

(Friend) Speech

By: Gabriela Yareliz We will get extra personal today. Uncensored speech. I have been thinking about this a lot lately in regard to friendship. Do we as adults need more friendships?

The Ross Geller ‘Hi’

By: Gabriela Yareliz There are people who say ‘hi’ like Ross Geller. As Joey states, they make you depressed when you interact with them. It’s like they are never ok. In fact, you are in a bad mood before you even speak to them because you know what is coming. You armor up. I wasContinue reading “The Ross Geller ‘Hi’”

Courage

By: Gabriela Yareliz Recently, I saw someone write that “courage is a blessing.” A fact in human history is that there are people who have the audacity to do some pretty terrible things or to tell bold lies. We need more people who have the courage to do the right thing. Those who don’t discardContinue reading “Courage”

‘Is God For Me?’ Interview

The realest. Brilliance. I never tire of listening to both of these men separately. So cool to hear them together. “I’ve never been afraid to die. I’ve been afraid to not live each day fully.” Erwin McManus

How to Have a Charmed Spring

By: Gabriela Yareliz I loved Gigi Chomiak‘s 100 Ways to Romance Life email newsletter (sent February 11). It got my mind wandering and thinking about the things that I feel make (or could make) spring magical. Spring is my favorite season, so I figured it would be fun to make a little list of howContinue reading “How to Have a Charmed Spring”

The Presence of Greatness

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s not uncommon to desire and strive for greatness. *Cue Kanye West’s song “Stronger” /Bow in the presence of greatness/* One of the Battle Ready podcast conversations discussed how we often fail to recognize greatness and scoff at people who have accomplished things we can’t even dream of. We can be soContinue reading “The Presence of Greatness”
