First thing in the morning (ok, after you have hot lemon water), you should do this: change your story.
I am someone who gets up at 7 a.m.
I am someone who wears scarves.
I am someone who rides my bike in Winter—and rocks it.
Change your story slightly. Mildly. Why so small? Because subtly shifting your energy changes your vibration, and lets the universe know you’re ready to allow new things to come into your life—big and small.

I’m not sure why I picked that particular moment—lying in the grass, sunshine ablaze on my eyelids—but I decided that this would be a great time to call Capital One.

Yesterday, I didn’t have a dime. Literally.
On my way back to Boulder after an incredible two-week stay in NYC, I needed 10 cents. Just that, for the bus. I hunted through three bookbags, two suitcases, and two small purses. Nothing. I remember seeing coins falling a lot when I was in New York, and never stopping to pick them up. I had nothing to make $2.40 into $2.50.
