This post was inspired by Chelsea at LiveYourLegend, a blog/community I’ve been following for a few years, where with every recent post I’m still shocked by the sudden loss of founder Scott Dinsmore. I often think I’ve told you everything. I’ve written an entire book about my whole sloppy mess, and I continue to rehash it here on the blog.... Read More

I attended a Gabby Bernstein event Friday night with Yoga Journal Live after what felt like the longest day ever.

I am a big fan of Jonathan Fields, but for some reason have been slacking on his podcast: The Good Life Project. Today, through GLP, I was introduced to Steve Kamb of Nerd Fitness and fell in love with his story. It’s all about following curiosity, leveraging interests and talents and creating a tribe, all while being authentically awesome and adorably... Read More

And only you! I love this message from Ellen. We often forget, given that she’s one of the most well-liked women on TV, that Ellen took a huge hit just to be herself. The world wasn’t ready for her, and she spent months depressed, doubting her decision. And now look at her. Yes, it can be risky to be honest,... Read More
