We are looking for blog posts (approximately 700-2000 words- blog post length) that discuss ways that you have found to extract the lessons in your own life, ways that struggles have allowed you to grow, tips and tools for living with strength, compassion, empathy, awareness, and joy, reflections on an event or situation in your life that would resound with others, and interviews with people who are living their best lives with creativity, passion, and inspiration. Stories can be joyful, honest, open, inspiring, practical, funny, sad, or anything in between. They should acknowledge the realities that we all share while at the same time offering hope, inspiration, and possibly even practical suggestions for living with integrity, learning from our lives, and practicing kindness, compassion, and awareness towards ourselves and others.
