In this interview I have the pleasure of speaking to Evy Smith. Evy and I connected online 10 years ago when she reached out to me in response to a blog I was writing. We have built a relationship since that time and got to meet in person officially in 2014 when she premiered Love Bomb in Burlington, Vermont. I feel that my relationship with her is exemplary of the positive power of the internet to connect me to wonderful inspiring people online and then in person.

In this conversation we explore the feeling of life balance as peace, fulfillment, and an inner harmony that leads to a harmony with life itself. She gives tips for finding this.
She shares about the power of nature and quiet times of reflection, as well as the importance of play and fun in the adult life. Essentially, making sure every day includes elements of self care as well as doing something that brings joy.
