Impact: have a strong effect on someone or something.
Bliss: perfect happiness, great joy.

After writing for StraightUpNewYork for almost three years (don’t worry, it’s still available here), I realized I wasn’t as passionate about it as I had once been. Don’t get me wrong, I still love exploring the restaurants and activities of NYC, but I wanted to dig deeper into the areas of my life and career that most excite me. I knew immediately that I wanted to write about impact, and the ability for everyone to have a positive impact, both on ourselves, our loved ones, our communities, and our world. I also think it’s critically important to find your bliss – so to understand and do what makes you happy. I think when the two come together, something magical can happen. What would the world look like if everyone was making an impact while finding their bliss?
My intention for this blog is two-fold. I want to share practical advice and tools that I am learning in both the impact and happiness space. I also want to begin to wrap my mind around the impact that I can have, while finding, or getting closer to, my bliss. I encourage others to contact me with feedback, topic ideas, or just to tell me how you make an impact and find your bliss. I look forward to starting this journey with you!
