We have a lot to give. But sometimes, we lack the
strong foundational practices and tools to
help us make space for that giving.



I'd say we have a lot to give—time, money, energy, talents. And by offering these things, we can help positively shape the world in which we live.

It's pretty clear that the world needs whatever we can give. We can all see that.

But too often, that kind of giving can feel like one more thing we have to do.

Too often, we feel we’re using up all we have simply making it through our everyday lives. That doesn’t make us feel happy or healthy. And it certainly doesn’t help us give back in ways that feel meaningful.

So I’m proposing we make a change.

Let’s be intentional about how we live our everyday lives so we have space for our most meaningful contributions. Let’s be intentional about being our happiest, healthiest selves so we can give freely. 

Let’s stop focusing on doing more and start focusing on doing different.

There’s no magic answer; there never is.
But there’s real power in making a decision to change.
And that’s where the magic can begin.


A good place to start is by choosing to focus on a single change at a time. And that's why I created Stronger Month by Month.

Here's how it works: Choose a monthly intention to focus on and then check in each week on my Instagram post! I'll be there to cheer you on or help you out, depending on what you need each week.
