Desired Horizons

“I’m not happy with work.” “I’ve been thinking about moving.” These quotes are a tiny sample of what people have shared with me after I told them I am leaving. I wonder, if everyone in my life is in the same place as me? Or is my truth creating space for others to share their…

I Am Ready

I never thought I would say what in recent years was all I wanted to say.

All Signs Point to Yes

I’ve been crying a lot lately. There are many moments where I stop to catch my breath. I have moments of disbelief at the obstacles I have faced and have overcome. I can clearly remember what it felt like to be so lost and feel so alone at times. Oh, the fears I have released…

Soulful Cries

I’ve been very emotional these past two weeks. This past week alone I’ve cried almost every day. If I cried in public, it might alarm people because of the depth of my tears. Amaya Angelou in her poem “Still I Rise” would call my tears “soulful cries”. As you read this, you may think that…

Mindful Monday #159 – Reboot

My cell phone camera stopped working this weekend. I didn’t know it stopped working, until I was at an event, that I looked forward to and wanted to document. The next morning, I tried everything to get my phone working, yet it continued to malfunction. Finally, I reached the last restort, REBOOT.  Not just any…

The Year of Adventure

Happy New Year! It’s 2017!!! I hope your 2016 ended well with peaceful resolve on the hard moments and experiences of your year.  I hope you had profound realizations on ways that you have grown, or need to grow and the ways you are or need to be nurtured and loved. My 2016 was great…

Blind Trust

I’m filled with emotion. I just saw a screening of a movie that I worked on last fall, called “La La Land”. It was amazing and is perhaps the best movie I have worked on in my career. The cinematography and art direction is beautiful, the story a universal story – that everyone can relate to and…

Tune #39 – Hope Will Lead Us On

“[This song] made me think of you and your journey,” brother Teddy texted me one afternoon in February.  He sent a link to the song, “Hope Will Lead Us On,” by the Barlow Girl. When I received that text that day, the timing was perfect. I never visited nor did I have a desire to visit Las Vegas prior…

Life in Full Bloom

This week was the best week of my life. Prior to finding my voice in the Fall of 2013, I set the goal at the start of that year to balance my life. I did not know what I was getting into when I made that choice. And I didn’t think the choice would change…

Life at Light Speed

Happy New Year! It’s so good to be back here writing. We have only been in the the new year for ten days. I am amazed with how different this year has already unfolded compared to last year. Last year, with my permission, the universe took away anything that no longer serves me, including friendships. I was left…

All Is Not Lost

Happy New Year’s Eve! I hope the year was good to you and everything that you needed it to be. If the year was a challenge, I hope you learned and grew or at least saw the light of each challenge. If the year all around stunk, I hope today is the high note that…

Facing Your Fears Can Be Isolating

I will be headed out of town for work in a few days. I have a lot to do to prepare for my trips, yet I sit and write. I am writing because I need to. I’ve been having trouble writing these past few weeks and I don’t know why? As I caught up with…

Waking Up from the Dream

I cried last night. I am feeling better, but I can’t seem to get enough rest. I’m still really physically tired AND also mentally exhausted. I have never been sick like this in my life and it’s unnerving. As I laid in bed, I reviewed the past four years to see if there were signs…

Mindful Monday #87 – One More Round

This weekend was a little over whelming. I am enjoying the current state of my life and the fruits of all my labor. I was able to catch up with a lot of friends that I haven’t seen in months. It was so good to see everyone. There is a bit of sadness in my…
