#BEAUTIFULIFE Vlogumentary 2 – Rwanda With Humanity Unified.

I'm really excited to share this video as it is our second Vlogumentary (our series of videos that are hybrids between vlogs and mini-documentaries), and it highlights very real impact Humanity Unified has made, and the visible progress of the community we work with as a result. This past trip felt different from my first 2 because it was clear that by that point the women knew we were there to stay. They knew by then that we truly have their well-being in mind, and it showed in their warm greetings, their bright smil[...]

10 11 Things You Need to Know About Being a Blogger and Being Your Own Boss.

The idea of a being a "blogger" or being "your own boss" can be so alluring at times. Waking up whenever you want, working in your pajamas in front of the TV at home or from all of your favorite coffee shops around the city while sipping on the finest almond milk lattes and loose-leaf teas, nobody telling you what to do ... who wouldn't want in on that lifestyle? The world is your oyster, right? Well ... sorta. There are a lot of common misconceptions about the "freelancer" or "blogger" lifestyle, and I'm here to debunk t[...]

This year has blown by and along the way, to my sincere surprise (I say this with all the humility in this heart of mine), I've somehow found myself living what might actually be something remarkably close to my best life. I'm not exactly sure how that came to be - it was a mixture of meeting the right people, dedicating myself wholeheartedly to my craft, asking the right questions, and being ready for opportunities that came while being hungry enough to create my own - but I can honestly say that no matter how hard I wo[...]

A Little Birthday Reflection.

  Today I spent my 31st birthday in the service of others, and I wouldn't have had it any other way. In my time working in Kigali, Rwanda with Humanity Unified, I’ve learned many things - about the living conditions in this country, the history that defines it, and most importantly, the state of its inhabitants as a result of the incredibly unfortunate incidents that happened years ago. When I come here I am repeatedly faced with the hard reality that not only are the people who live in poverty here complete[...]

In Other Words, Faith.

PREFACE: Yes, this post has a preface. It's a long one. But hopefully, it's one you'll find worth the read. 2016 has really begun to unfold into something unlike anything I could have ever imagined. I had traveled a decent amount before this year but definitely incomparable to the amount of travel I've done in just the first quarter of 2016. We all know travel teaches you volumes about the world, but what is equally fascinating is how much it teaches you about yourself. When you've spent a fair amount of time visiting va[...]

We Have All the Lack of Time in the World.

"We have all the time in the world." ... coined some person whose time in this world is now done. Throughout life we are taught to practice two very different ideals: patience, and urgency. We are taught that we should go out and do things right now because the world is at our fingertips and we can have it all; but we are also taught that we can't have it all at once. So many of the feelings that we have throughout life - examples being feelings of accomplishment, inadequacy, fervor, or stagnancy - are all intrinsicall[...]
