Hello, happy to meet you.

I’m Vanda Frak, a nationally published writer living and working near Toronto, Canada. You might have previously come across my writing in DOTE Magazine or on Medium. I couldn’t be more thankful that you’ve decided to invest a sliver of your time into reading my personal blog.

This space is a digital documentation of all the things that bring me joy and remind me to live simply, intentionally and well. I’m deeply passionate about mindset development and helping people grow past their limiting beliefs (this reflects heavily in my Medium articles) and I share bits of my thoughts on that topic here as well.

When I’m not writing, you can usually find me with my nose in a book, cup of coffee never too far away. I’m a hungry and voracious reader, thumbing though dozens of books a year, ranging from fiction, to non-fiction to self help. From Cheryl Strayed, Shauna Niequist, Elizabeth Gilbert and Erin Loechner to Brianna Wiest, I absorb books like a sponge, and they fill me with much comfort, happiness and knowledge.

Sometimes, I’m lucky enough to travel and I’ll document my trips here as well, because let’s be real, who doesn’t want to know where to find the best cup of coffee in a city?

But above all, in between the writing, the reading and the traveling, I make it my purpose to live with intention. To live well. To surround myself with people that challenge, grow and support me. To seek a sense of mindfulness in everything that I do.

And then I share it here with you. Or every Sunday in my newsletter, if you’d like to be a part of that community.

I hope you can find what you’re needing to read here, and I hope it fills you with hope and inspiration.

Until next time,

Vanda Frak
