A Series of Leaps

“All roads lead to this…” I have told myself repeatedly these past few weeks. It all started with a harmless post on the gifts that come from breakups. What I initially wanted to say, evolved into something different and guided me to a deeper reflection. The day Breakeven pt I posted, all I could think…

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…

Re-Calibrate

“The universe is naturally in balance, it wants the living to be in balance too…”

Tune Tuesday #1 – Learning to Fly

I’ve been wanting to add a new section to my blog for Tuesday, but I couldn’t think of anything that felt right. The idea hit me last night. Tune Tuesday. I love music. Music has been there for me to offer words of support, encouragement, motivation, understanding and helped speak to the truths that I…

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?…

Mindful Monday #61 – Regret

Happy Monday! I am currently out of state, at home with my family for the week. Coming home is always a blessing because I get to spend time with friends and family. For me, home is a place where I can rest and relax. I always gain great insights here because I am able to…

Get Real – My Leap of Faith – Reflection

Take a moment to think about where you are at this moment. Really take the time to reflect on every aspect of your life: job, career, love life, health, and social life. Where were you last year at this time? Have you or your life changed or has it stayed the same? Are you the…

Improv and The Art of Presence

I’ve studied improv for almost two years and I absolutely love it.  Improv allows you to be a kid again and invites your imagination to run wild.  It takes you to new places, characters and stories based on an audience suggestion.  From the audience perspective, improv appears to be as simple as the conversation between…

Mindful Monday #34 – The Next Chapter

It was my Birthday yesterday.  The weeks that lead up to my birthday I was unsure how to celebrate and spend my day.  My spiritual friend told me that she believes the way you spend your birthday sets the tone for how you start your next personal year.  With that in mind, I chose to…

Mindful Monday #33 – Do Something You’ve Never Done

The time has come for me to write about my month of writing reflection.  The profound realizations and changes that occurred during the month of May and June have become a part of me and how I live my life.  This year has been incredibly hard with all the universal truths that I have both…

Mindful Monday #28 – Inspire

I said good-bye to a friend this weekend at his going away party.  I’ve known him only for a year, but within the year we have become good friends.  I am both excited and sad to see him go.  My friend isn’t moving, but he is unsure if/ when he will be back.  So I…

Plan to be Surprised

“I don’t know why I never thought that would apply to me?”  I told a girlfriend, over dinner.  It’s been over a month since I’ve been back from my month of writing and I am still chipping away at seeing friends that I either haven’t seen since I was out-of-town or haven’t seen at all…

Mindful Monday #25 – Patience

Enter sigh of relief here…ahhhh. The weeks preceding my month of writing were the most challenging and emotional weeks I experienced this year. In February and March, I was in a similar emotional place as I witnessed in the moment many full circle moments and had realizations that made me feel humbled and grateful. My…
