You can have it all. Just not all at once. -Oprah As much as I’ve been loving this quote lately, it continues to be a hard lesson. Especially when it appears Oprah has it all at once! The comparison game … a dirty trap! I think those rolling hills I describe in the vlog (above) are built on boundaries and... Read More

Feeling “Meh,” and What to Do With It

At first Elisa and I thought it was summer brain, then it was the heat, and then it was the heaviness of the current state of country/world. Motivation has been low here in our Brooklyn apartment, to say the least. Passion is sputtering along with our attention turned in so many different directions: refugees, suicide bombers, Orlando, #blacklivesmatter. Our energy... Read More

Why I’m In Love With the World, Regardless

I saved this post title months ago, having been inspired by the thought, but never had the time to flesh it out. For some reason, in the midst of this swampiness of cynicism, in the wake of recent tragedies, I feel called to revisit the idea.

Honeymoon YOLO!

kat hurley, palace, croatia, split
The hour and a half propeller plane ride with screaming German children didn’t allow for much rest, so I believe in total we were going on about two hours of sleep when we arrived in Croatia at noon. Thankfully our hotel has a little beach, and this time of year slim crowds, so we had plenty of chaise lounges to... Read More

Game On!

I’ve been on such a huge podcast kick lately. I have School of Greatness, Tim Ferriss, James Altucher, The Unmistakable Creative, and more, all on rotation. As opposed to audiobooks, I get so much out of 45 min I can often skip the 8-hour book. Although I have been collecting a mega list of must reads after repeatedly hearing questions... Read More
