Life is never perfect. There’s always some piece that needs fixing and tending and change. Maybe it’s your job, or your relationships, or where you live. The best we can do is enjoy where we are, in the midst of the mess and the disorder and the chaos. If we can pick our heads up and look around and look past all the disappointment, we can find the goodness. It might be just a speck far in the distance, but it’s there. These days, I’m trying to focus my energy on what’s right and not what’s wrong. It’s challenging. Sometimes it seems downright impossible, but I try anyway. And in the trying, I find a way forward. It’s not about being lucky or fortunate. It’s about being so determined that I just refuse to give up. I believe in a brighter tomorrow and that belief is enough to see me through another day.

About Christa Avampato

I make a living in business and I make a life as a writer, artist, and yogi. I use my business and storytelling skills to build a better world. My first novel, Emerson Page and Where the Light Enters, will be published in the Fall of 2017 by Thumbkin Prints, a children's and YA imprint of Possibilities Publishing Co. My creative career has stretched across Capitol Hill, Broadway theatre, education, nonprofit fundraising, health and wellness, and Fortune 500 companies in retail, media, and financial services. In every experience, I have used my sense of and respect for elegant design to develop meaningful products, services, program, and events to help people live happier, healthier lives. A recovering multi-tasker, I am a proud alum of UPenn (BA) and the Darden School at UVA (MBA). When not in front of my Mac, I’m on my yoga mat, walking my rescue dog, Phineas, traveling with a purpose, or practicing the high-art of people watching. I am proud to New York City my home, and I've been called the happiest New Yorker by friends and strangers alike. They're right. Follow my adventures on Twitter at and Instagram at
