Friendships are one of the best gifts we can give (and receive) in our lifetimes. A great friend brings joy and laughter, support for all of the highs and lows, and love that never sways.
When building a friendship, you imagine a future never without them. Friends appear in the memories you have yet to make and those that are happening in the present. But what happens when change is inevitable?

3 things you can do RIGHT NOW to connect with someone awesome
This GIF feels ironic because there are no shortage of ladies drinking events in Dubai — *however* who doesn’t want a friend who can celebrate with you in old age, even with a virgin mojito?
I received the following question from a follower on Instagram:
“How do I get into wellness and coaching if I studied or my degree is in something else?”
I want to get into four things I think you should know before you get started in the coaching and wellness space.
You might wonder, who am I to talk about this? I’m not a coach. I’m Rachael Lynn and I’m the author of At Home Anywhere.
I worked for personal development authors and coaches for the last 5 or 6 years in North America before moving to Dubai. I’ve had coaches…

If the person reading only got ONE point from this book, what is it?

Trying to make new friends can be intimidating.
Where do you go? How do you introduce yourself? What if you meet someone and they don’t want to hang out?
There are practical tips to give you, those where to go, “best apps to use” posts. But the logistics aren’t the first thing I talk about in my community of readers. It’s the deeper stuff we go for first.

September 8th was the official 1 year marker that my plane landed in Dubai and I was going to call this place home. (Though I figured out the word home has many applications.)
