My name is Rebecca Thomas and I write thoughtful self-help.

Feeling happy and satisfied with life matters to me, and I’m betting that it does to you as well. How we make progress to that goal is what I tackle in this useful, actionable newsletter.

A good life is a comprehensive endeavor. It’s the slow business of understanding the systems we live in and how they affect us. It’s learning about ourselves, our parents, and our children. It’s welcoming change and diminishing our egos. It’s accepting loss, exploring our world and creating change. It’s forgiveness, bravery, and figuring out how to get out of our own way. It’s grief. It’s love. It’s learning when to stay put and when to leave. Sometimes, it’s just taking a walk.

Sign up to get my newsletter and we’ll walk together.
