I’m Thankful For: Believing Mirrors

I was closed off for a good part of my life when I was younger. I was blind to this fact too. People have always been open with me since I remember and I thought I was open with them too. They talked, I listened and I never said much. I got away with listening and I probably still…

I Am Thankful for: The Idle Moments

The universe meets me in the idle moments, each time I take an extended break. That’s when I gain the most clarity. I told The Answered Prayer. “The universe meets you in all your idle moments these days.” He responded. This is a broad overview of the conversation we had before I left in early June. It wasn’t until…

Wisdom Wednesday # 67 – A Father’s Wish

Father’s Day was this weekend. When mothers day or fathers day or holidays in relation to family come up, I feel the need to tread lightly. Not everyone has grown up in a loving home or to loving parents or guardians.  I do not want to exclude anyone and I sometimes do not write during these events. Visions of absent…

Mindful Monday #120 – Love Takes Off the Mask

During my writing/ away time, I am also serving the community. For one day a week. I am co-teaching a mother -daughter / father-daughter writing workshop for teenage girls. This week kicks off the third week of the workshop. I am teaching this weeks theme on the topic of perceptions. I learned this activity from Awaken…

My Sacred Space

I’m currently in the “middle of nowhere” and I have been here for almost two weeks. I choose not to identify my location for a good reason. I took a mini vacation to Santa Barbara at the end of May. In the two days I was gone, several phone calls and text messages interrupted the peace. Each call…

Wisdom Wednesday #66 – This Messy Life

After finding my voice over two years ago, I began a journey of vulnerability to share parts of my true self that I had no idea I had hidden. This blog came from that goal to be vulnerable. One of my goals, since I was a girl, is to be a speaker. Speakers were woven into my high school…

Mindful Monday #119 – Be Overcome By Light

I can not believe the world we are living in at this moment. So much is changing in the world, there is building tension at a domestic and international level, plus a surplus of voices either aid or inhibit important discussions that seek to solve real issues, others don’t feel heard or feel ignored and it’s all…

I’m Thankful For: Freedom

This year, I had a few realizations that I have not written about yet. I have only verbally shared some of those realizations with a handful of friends. Some realizations require backstory in order to grasp the depth of the realization, others I am in the midst of understanding deeper and some I am not…

Wisdom Wednesday #65 – Wisdom of Adulthood

We often get caught up in our day to day life that we forget to step back and look at the bigger picture. The things that we get fixated on are not as important as the quality of our life. We often get caught up on what degree we are deserving of great things or…

Mindful Monday #118 – Everyone Struggles

The grass is always greener on the other side. We all know this wisdom and often live by it. In times of great weakness or struggle we throw the wisdom aside and step into a place where we question and compare our struggles to others. The record that overcomes our thoughts sounds like this: Why…
