Now, more than ever before, I feel like it’s really quite easy to get into a state of overwhelm. Our world is filled with a never-ending barrage of notifications, updates, ads, and pulls for our attention.
I devour books. Reading is basically like my best friend. These 8 books have been game changers for me, and they’ve offered me nuggets of wisdom that made me more aware of myself, my relationships, and my purpose.
The honest truth is I did not even know what a food pantry was before I worked at one. I knew people collected and donated food, but I never thought about the logistics of how the food is distributed to the people that need it (which is embarrassing to admit).
I arrived in Costa Rica last week and it was love at first sight. This.place.is.AMAZING. Hands down, Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful, scenic places I’ve ever been to.
