It has been 23 years since I held you in my arms and had to said goodbye to you all too early. I am thankful for the motivation you give me to do better. Although you only lived five hours, you inspire me. You are an angel. I know you are rooting for me and love me despite my mistakes and imperfections and that makes all the difference. I miss and love you! I will continue to keep the promise I whispered to you. You will never be forgotten and your life matters @raceforgriefutah 💕

Recently I ran across this Ted Talk entitled 10 Ways to Have a Better Conversation and I think it’s spot on. As a coach, mother, friend etc I am always looking for ways to better communicate with others. In a brief 10 minutes, Celeste Headlee (a person that makes her living by talking to people as a professional interviewer) shares great insight on how to have better conversations. I just love her perspective and she promises if you master even one of these 10 things you will enjoy better conversations. I love that.
