Wisdom Wednesday #38 – March On

My life has changed in recent weeks and the verdict is out on whether the change is for the better or the harder? I intentionally did not say worse, because my life is good. It’s the season of my life that doesn’t seem to change. While I have had great moments this year, the over all…

Mindful Monday #66 – SEEK STRENGTH

I don’t know where to begin with today’s post? In fact, I struggled to find today’s quote, struggled all week and I’ve been struggling for awhile. I have reached a point of frustration where all I want to do is scream at the top of my lungs. A + B doesn’t always equal C. I’ve…

Enjoy the Struggle

  This week started out very different then it ended. After several realizations this morning, I realized this is the first moment where I have been able to sit and catch my breath, since Tuesday. The main thing I realized is that my current place in life is life testing my boundaries and at the…

Mindful Monday #65 – Keep Going

Happy Monday. It’s the start of a new week. I’ve been in a funk lately. I feel like I have hit a wall and feel like their are no visible options to help me through this time. I keep thinking I missed something along the way and I have been retracing my steps and reviewing…

The Soulmate – 1 Year Anniversary – Reflection

One year ago today, I was in Arizona for my month of writing and went out for a girls night. A week prior, I had just forgiven myself for my actions or lack of action in a relationship that went on longer then it should have and weighed heavily on me since we break up….

My Aching Heart

Apparently this year is the year where I write blog posts that scare me. Of the handful of blog post that I have hesitated to both write and post this year, this one has caused me to hold my breath because I am terrified of what I will uncover. I don’t know where to start?…

Your Silence Will Not Protect You

Happy Friday. This week has felt both long and short. For the past two weeks I have been very emotional as a result of working with the youth that I serve through the program Awaken Arts. Each week I think about the girls and their stories, and use their stories to inform the motivational speeches…

Wisdom Wednesday #37 – Authenticity

“Let the real you shine always. When you let your authentic self shine, you become a beacon that attracts the right people and right situations into your life.” I told the girls through the non-profit Awaken Arts. As the final day with the girls approaches I am meditating on what final wisdom I can give…

Mindful Monday #66 – The Five W’s of Life

The final day of the Spring session for Awaken Arts is this weekend. I’ve been very emotional lately as a result of working with these girls through the program. I have heard their stories and use them to inform the speeches that I write each week. Already, I am thinking of how I can sum…

Choose Your Own Adventure

How often do you think about your childhood? I rarely think about mine. In fact, I usually have to be prompted by someone to think about it, otherwise I spend my time thinking about other things regarding my present and future. From time to time, I think about high school, but only in relation to…

Mindful Monday #65 – The Future

We have two weeks left with the youth that I am working with for Awaken Arts. This weeks theme is the future. We will spend this weekend working on setting goals, which is one of my favorite activities. There are so many wonderful quotes that I have memorized about the future.  While those quotes are…
