10 Little Rules

The 10 Little Rules

Sometimes the things that wreck us are the things that make us whole.

Those tragedies in life — big and small, massive and mundane, public and oh-so-private — can bring us to our knees. They can also help us uncover what’s real; they can force us to start truly listening to the voice of our own hearts.

So it was with me, after divorcing, losing a business, and facing an empty nest and a scary recession, all within the space of a few months.

As I processed all of it, I discovered something remarkable: I’d been living my life by everyone’s rules but my own. My world had to implode to get me to see this.

Then one magical morning I sat down to write. Out of that morning came The 10 Little Rules for a Blissy Life, and a new approach to living that made me 100% responsible for my own happiness.

Since that morning, I’ve connected with some amazing people who also want to share their rules for happiness, creativity, success and wholeness, and together we are creating the 10 Little Rules series of books.

We all need reminders to live by our own rules. We can all use a little help on our journey. That’s what we hope you’ll find on this site, in the books, on the blog and with our growing community of friends online.

How to be happier … right this moment

The advice is all over the internet. We know we should get enough sleep, eat right, exercise, connect with friends, volunteer, take a walk. But there’s one thing that seems to be missing from a lot of this happiness advice. Quit spending so much time on social media. Like, right now. Stop it. “Every day there is another article, video or piece of content that tells […]

We’ve been MIA since school has started, with only a few updates via Instagram. Sorry about that! I swear that we’ve been busy, I haven’t been just sleeping in while the kids are in school. I mean, I have been, but other things have been happening, too. In the past few months, we have made some changes in Hank’s care team. We’ve switched to a […]
