Alt Chat Wednesday: Celebrating The Little Things

By: Eden Hensley; Photos by Justin Hackworth and Brooke Dennis for Alt Summit

We seldom chat about celebrating our successes or those of our fellow community members. We last did in 2012, when Sara shared advice for how celebrate others’ successes and how to steer clear of the comparison trap and jealousy.

This week we’re taking a break from the hustle to celebrate the little things. The community we’re building along our journey. The steps along our path that lead to seeing our dreams become reality. The people who support us day in and day out. The milestones we may have reached on our blog or on social media while we weren’t watching.

Join us on tax day (Wednesday, April 15th) at 9AM PDT / 12PM EDT as we celebrate the little things in our lives and talk about ways we can be more mindful of our journey and of those who support us along the way.

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
