Insights and Invites


"It's hard to be grateful and resentful.” -Dr. Liz Hale

“Observe and then serve.” -Dr. Dave Schramm

“One of the actions that I've personally seen the power of in my own life is the intentional practice of gratitude. So when I feel my stuff, my brain starts slipping into this negative vortex that starts to get dark. And I just have to pause. And when I start practicing gratitude, it's like, I can reverse the effects of that.” -Natasha Dansie


  • Find a moment to pause after you have a feeling of inadequacy.
  • If someone shares the way that they are feeling, instead of stating why they shouldn’t be feeling that way, validate their feelings by saying something like, “that must be really difficult” or “I see how you could feel that way.”
