Mindful Monday #80 – Reflection

Happy Monday! Tomorrow is the start of a new month which is also my birth month and I have begun the process of reflecting on my personal year. This year has been a hard every step of the way, at the same time has been poetry. Since I am in a reflective state I wanted…

Breakeven pt. II

Two weeks ago I scratched the surface on break ups with Breakeven pt. I. Once a relationship ends it feels like there is a real or imagined imbalance between the parties involved e.g. one person grieves more or dates right away and sometime one person finds their future spouse. We all grieve in different ways, When…

Mindful Monday #79 – Move Closer to the Truth

Happy Monday. My life is becoming even more of an adventure. I sort of feel like Alice in Wonderland at times with some strange experiences that I have had as I follow my intuition. In response to my Sunday post, I didn’t need to look to hard to find a quote that speaks to this…

The Side Effects of Breakeven pt. I

Breakeven pt. I had a surprisingly deep impact on me this week and led me on an unexpected journey. I am genuinely speechless. It was my intention from the start to take my writing down a different path than what I published, but I trusted where my writing naturally went and I followed it. I…

Tune Tuesday # 10 – Just to See You Smile

This series on break ups it taking me to interesting places. The songs I looked into last week, are far different then the songs that I looked into this week. I never really thought about it but, there are vast reasons why people break up. We tend to focus on all the good and over…

Mindful Monday #78 – Go Towards Your Edge

Happy Monday! Life always provides what you need when you need it and apparently solitude is what I really need because it’s where I find myself. I’ve been working on a feature for over a month, which I am enjoying, but it’s providing a lot of solitude. I haven’t been making a lot of plans…

Breakeven pt. I

When I first heard Breakeven by the script, I thought it was brilliant. To my knowledge it was the first song that addressed the unbalance of a breakup. “I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing […]  [S]he’s moved on while I’m still grieving. [W]hen a heart breaks no it don’t break even.” -“Breakeven” by the…

Tune Tuesday #9 – The Power of Goodbye

Many of my friends are navigating the world of dating and romantic relationships. Within this past few weeks alone, I have heard stories around online dating, long distance relationships, heartbreak, new love, weird dates and break-ups and the long awaited apology. Earlier this year, I had an unexpected experience that I didn’t know I needed….

Mindful Monday #77 – Speak With Love

Happy Monday! We have a little over four months to go until the end of the year. My birthday is next month and it kicks off several rituals and reflections that I do each year. I am curious about my end of the year reflection post because each month has been so different. I don’t…

The Happy Ending or Happy Beginning?

Have you ever had a moment where something you said sticks with you? It’s not a statement you regret, but something deeper. Something simple that you said in the moment with little to no thought that lingers on in your mind long after the conversation ended. It’s almost like the thought begs you to explore…

Tune Tuesday #8 – Right Now

I love Tuesdays. I really enjoy selecting songs that speak to me or life experience and sharing them. Curating songs for these posts has transformed the way I listen to music. I now look deeper at lyrics to find the truth of each line and the overall message of a song. To my surprise I…

Mindful Monday #76 – Do the Impossible

Happy Monday! This weekend was amazing. I had one of the best realizations this weekend that I have ever had, and am excited to write about it for Friday’s post. During the month of June, my life was in winter. I retraced my steps and wondered if my journey was worth it or if I…
