In 2014, I had the privilege of sharing 12 months of my innermost thoughts on The Pastry Box Project. It’s a place where 30 people a year, leaders from a variety of fields, are brought together through collaborative sharing and interweaving of stories to reveal undeniable truths about the human condition.
Below is a roundup of every piece I published, one per month. Hopefully, when read together, they will tell the story of my evolution this past year. I also encourage you to read through others’ posts to get a feel for the power of collective wisdom.

Thank you to Alex Duloz and Katy Watkins of The Pastry Box Project for creating and maintaining this space, for us ephemeral beings to share a piece of our truths in the short time we have here, to leave a legacy even if it isn’t pretty or long-lasting. And for beautifully, magnificently, never making it about you. Merci tout plein.
