Brené Brown has a great video On Empathy that explains so well the difference between empathy and sympathy. About that vulnerable place where you are asked to “feel with a person” when they are saying to you, with or without words “I’m scared, I’m overwhelmed”.

As a small staff of twelve it’s… Continue reading Inspired at The Round Table
The last week has been a whirlwind of emotions. Much to my surprise (and total happiness) I was offered a job at my intern place, WHW!! I honestly never expected this to happen, and especially not so soon, and I need to say it before I even continue, God truly has a way of placing… Continue reading Change and new beginnings
