    Wow, what an exciting topic. I had the opportunity to attend a webinar called "Ethical Investing 101" hosted by Bravely Go, a women and minority-funded company focused on financial feminism and activism. The webinar was incredibly engaging and was focused on how can we center our money around our values. I also received a discount to her new course and workbook focused on ethical investing. I am so excited to continue this learning journey and exploring how I can put my money where my values are!

    What was it like to practice mindfulness? If this is a practice for you already, what was something new you understood in practicing during Earth Month?

    Journaling has been a very meditative practice for me but it became a challenge when I began commuting into work. Now I've found that if I wake up earlier (let's say 6 AM), I have the time to slowly get going, eat a nice breakfast, maybe drink some coffee, and get into a meditative state without feeling rushed. I'm excited to continue integrating these early-morning journal sessions into my days.
