The Space

Unless you’ve completely unplugged, there’s a chance you’ve come across a conversation or two (or ten) about creating a ‘safe space.’ Even without meaning to, we gravitate to what we consider our safe space: a local cafe or coffee shop, the gym, a yoga studio. We believe that it is only in this space that…

I AM… Mother

This post is dedicated to the people who do good in this world, but are shy about recognizing their contributions. The person in this next story would rather live the life than talk about it. So we’ve been tasked with sharing her story with the world, while also keeping her anonymous. THE FOSTER MOTHER: This…

I mean that she is a genuinely happy human who makes you feel like you are blessing her with your presence (even though it’s seriously the other way around). I first met…

Listen…

… to the one person who you are least likely to listen to. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how potent, how perfect a message is.

Love, Drew
