What I’ve learned in Graduate School so far …


“Life is messy. Clean it up!”

  • Human connection is what gives us purpose and meaning to our life.
  • The excruciating vulnerability allows us to fully embrace a sense of worthiness, love, and belonging.
  • Wholehearted people are courageous, compassionate, and authentic.
  • What makes me vulnerable, makes me beautiful.
  • I am willing to say, “I love you” first.
  • I am willing to do something with no guarantee.
  • Vulnerability is the birthplace of joy.
  • Blame is a way to discharge pain and discomfort.
  • We are wired for struggle, but I am worthy of love and belonging.
  • We pretend what we do does not have a huge impact on people.
  • Let ourselves be deeply seen.
  • Tell the truth and be kind.
