Full Strawberry Moon Rising June 2023

It's usually an easy choice to decide between watching the sunrise or the sunset, except for one exceptional event I adore: witnessing the sunset followed by the rise of the full moon. This combination is surprisingly rare due to frequent overcast skies and the elusive nature of the moon.

Are We At the End of the Golden Age of Social Media?

Are We At the End of the Golden Age of Social Media?
I believe we are at the end of the golden age of social media. I used to find gratitude and the ability to use a service for free to stay connected with family and friends, to grow my brand, to meet new people, and to sell my products. It felt like a gift to have all of this at no cost.
But it was never free. There was a cost. And that cost has become too expensive for many of us to bear. The curtain has been torn down and The Man Behind the Wizard has been revealed.

How Would You Feel About Two Months Off Social Media?
Have you ever taken a break from social media? Maybe you tried unplugging for a long weekend or took a break while on vacation. Or perhaps like me, you've never been able to take a proper break. I've been posting on social media since 2007. Until this summer I'd never taken more than a few days off in a row and only a couple of times a year.

First Steps to Recovering From Burn-out as an Entrepreneur

First Steps to Recovering From Burn-out as an Entrepreneur

The first steps to recovering from burn-out as an entrepreneur is acknowledging that I am burnt out. I resisted this for a long time. I didn’t want to admit that I was in burn-out and thought if I just kept doing more that it would be ok. At the same time, I was feeling a lack of desire to share content on social media. I had been posting between 20-30 different pieces of content on 5-8 platforms DAILY.

Until one day I couldn’t do it anymore. I broke down in front of my husband and told him that I couldn’t physically do any more. My body was in pain, my creativity gone, and my mindset shattered.

Where is Our Gratitude Now?

Where is Our Gratitude Now?
In April 2020 I shared a post called a Tsunami of Gratitude. I wonder, where is our gratitude now?

There has never been a time such as this in our lifetime.

Our Facebook feed used to be full of thankful memes, now it's filled with misinformation and disinformation, designed to divide us.
Our homemade hearts that filled our windows have long since faded.
Car parades to help our kids celebrate their birthday in isolation have been replaced with funeral processions.
And at 7 o'clock in the evening around the world, no one is making noise to honour our health care workers anymore.

Without hesitation, she said yes.
