• Trading Inner Virtue For Outward Charm

    Scrawled on a napkin in Prague.

    I see the man looking at other women while strolling with his wife.

    I see the woman looking straight ahead, only living in his consciously perceived words, “You are everything to me.”

    The Day I Became A Moskovitz – P. 1

    Wedding Day: The Ceremony

    Weddings are HARD.  There is so much emotional hype – planning, pushing, stretching.  If I were to do it all over again, I know we’d choose to elope right from the very get-go.  All this being said, our wedding was amazing and the best day of my life.

  • I See In Chillwave

    A writerly short written summer 2014

    I walk down the street not thinking much, but incredibly content.  It’s rainy and cold.  My glasses are covered with water droplets and fogging up.  I take them off.  “Road Work Ahead” reads ablur.

  • Books Read In 2016

    Pretty sure the thing that kept my sanity last year was reading.  I’d tried before to read a book a week and fell short at 36.  In 2016, with a full time job, a 2 hour commute, a regular workout schedule, finding a house, a DIY wedding and a 3-some week honeymoon, I managed to read a hefty 57 books.  Here’s what I read…

  • Finding rest through the hard and harder

    Some people say, “The hard times help you appreciate the good.”  I couldn’t disagree more.

    There will always be hard times.  You can truly learn to be grateful every day for all you have, without hardship as an excuse.  The good and bad don’t exist as a contingency.

  • Springtime Synopsis

    May = cold rain and unpredictable weather in Denver.  On a day like today, when the skies are dropping hail and the day is best for reading, I find that pre-established sentiment to remain consistent.  Having come from Florida, I missed the seasons that guide the natural ebb and flow of moods and activities.  Being privy to seasons now, and understanding my own lack of control over the weather and the way of things in general, I find myself more at peace and forgiving than ever of all I cannot control.  Grateful even for the things that don’t kill and only make us stronger.

    In this post, my only real intention is to talk about my season and what’s going on, so I can look back and remember this otherwise hardly documented time.

  • What I Learned From Being Bed Ridden

    In January I read 6 books because I had the time.  It was the hardest month of my life, and I am glad it’s over.  I sprained an ankle and while that seems an easy enough deal, I have yet to drive a car- 4 weeks later.

  • I’m writing a book. There is no moral story. Just nuances of belief.

    “Erin Elisse uses big picture thinking to reach today’s mindsets.”
    “Sprouting Mind- A deliberate living blog.”
    Erin Elisse relaunch- “Big picture marketing.”
    I use this “big picture” phrase and now I’ve noticed it’s becoming a buzzword.  For me, big picture means deliberate and goal oriented.  I practice it in my work, my personal life and of course, write about it in my book.

  • How One Man Creates Space In A Corporate World

    Words Overheard

    I’m a homebody by default, but love going out and having (or overhearing) good conversations wherever I am.  In the past, when I’d go out alone, my openness to whatever came led me to some very interesting ideas and thoughts that influence me for days and even years on end because they were based off personally had experiences my mind actively deconstructed and sorted.  Often, the conversations, thoughts or observations I make turn into a shaping that I then incorporate into my book.

    Lately, I’ve attended a number of holiday events as an undercover marketing/writing caterer. That’s how it feels anyway.  I’m a marketing professional who gets this pretty unsolicited insight into professionals’ homes, lives, businesses, opinions and ideas as “the help.”

    While there are many fantastically “interesting” overheard conversations, there is one I’d like to share.

  • Weekly Review: November 8-14

    Since my weeks have been looking very much the same in terms of what I’ve been commenting upon (a very nice and happy thing), I will discuss something else this week that sums up my week in a nutshell.

    BUSINESS.
