Deconstruct The Yuck - A Year of Monthly Challenges in Search of an Authentic Life
Deconstruct the Yuck is about cultivating an authentic, balanced life out of the 'yucks' around us. ‘Yuck’ is the stuff that bogs us down and gets in the way of the life we truly want, and occasionally even our own values.

The hope is that through trying new actions of change and writing our daily reflections, we will rediscover our authentic selves. We also hope to inspire others to find some sort of peace amid the 'yuck.'

We also had the privilege of meeting […]
