I'm Cara. I started this blog to share what I'm learning on the quest for a satisfying life. I hope you'll join me.
My life is not 100% perfectly satisfying yet, but it's really good and getting better all the time. You can do it, too! This blog is about how to reduce your stress, live a more peaceful life, experience more joy, and be closer to the people you value. It's about being more genuine, more fully you. Welcome to the journey!
