Teens. Social media. Spirituality. Staying connected.
They are just some of the many things parents encounter when raising children and it can be overwhelming and messy.
Recently, Mallika Chopra had the opportunity to sit down with the Kids in the House team to share her experiences and wisdom gained from raising two young daughters. They filmed a short series of videos to encourage parents who are parenting teens through stress, spirituality and social media. Continue reading →
On calendars in the United States, today is a day dedicated to remembering, Memorial Day. We remember those service men and women who sacrificed everything for the sake of others and that is an important practice because it feels easier to forget difficult things. It makes sense to forget everything aside from the happy endings and the good news but there is something very important to remembering the journey as a whole.
Acknowledging the journey allows us to be gracious. It reminds us not to take our steps forward for granted and that time is limited. How we choose to spend it, whether it be in vain pursuit or for the betterment of ourselves will ultimately affect everyone. Remembering is important because it allows us to be informed as we start a new page today. Continue reading →
In April we were excited to launch the brand new Intent.com app!
After building a family online, we were excited to take that family out into the world and allow you to share your intents as they happen. It has been wonderful to see the marriage of words and images, your feelings paired with that what you are seeing.
This past week has been an immersion in to the world of “intention”, guided and inspired by Chopra.
First, as a multi-media editor reviewing books, the week began when I surprisingly (and excitedly) received Mallika Chopra’s new book “Living with Intent” in my mailbox. This began a 6-day journey in to Mallika’s journey through “Intent” which, of course, fueled my own journey in to intent. As a journalist and avid reader of self-help, I have always held a deep and professional intention to align with any of the Chopras in any capacity. So you can imagine how excited I was to learn my interview with Mallika about her book was confirmed. Continue reading →
Yes, here I go again. This time, it is with you and me snuggled, struggled and strapped into the passenger seat like a mistaken, forsaken and humble hostages, not sure of our next move, watching the heavy weight of it all on the pedal of fate. The race has already begun. And you never really do understand, so you can’t help but think, “How did I get here in the first place?”
Meditation may be entirely foreign to you.
You may have started a practice years and years ago.
Either way, we invite you to sit and pause with us for a moment and refocus on living a life with intent. Continue reading →
Being really alive.
As springtime arrives and the earth is waking up from a long sleep, we’re reminded of what it means to really live, to really bloom and grow. Everyday you have the option to put yourself on autopilot, to check out of everything happening around you. But what if you really embraced being alive? What would it look like?
I’m out with a new Dear Gabby video, and this one totally rocks. As you know, for the past decade I’ve been a motivational speaker and self-help book author. I wake up every day freaking thrilled to run to my computer and get to work. I am so psyched about my career because I let passion and purpose become my life’s work. And I believe we all have the power to turn our passion into our paycheck. Continue reading →
It was only a few days ago that this 200 year old mummy was discovered in the Mongolian province of Songinokhairkhan but the questions it’s caused will take some time to answer. The mummy was found covered in animal hide, revealing what appears to be a man meditating in Lotus position. Continue reading →
