I’m Thankful for: Water

It is Thankful Thursday; a day I set aside to write about what I am thankful for. Throughout each day I think express gratitude for what I am thankful for as I encounter each moment. When looking at life with a grateful eye, you have little time to think about what you do not enjoy…

The Answered Prayer

I used to pray a lot when I was a kid. I was raised to pray formal prayers and rarely did I make those prayers personal. There was a period of my early adulthood where I didn’t pray as often and over time I stopped. The practice just faded over time. In the past five…

Wisdom Wednesday #53 – 5 Messages from Your Soul

Since November is here and I am in reflection mode. My recent state of rest has provided a deeper and different type of all holistic reflection which is new to me. I usually reflect in small aspects of my life, but in terms of the bigger picture. Today’s Wisdom I came across in mid September,…

What I Believe Makes Me Who I Am

My goal for the month is to focus on my Heath. I wanted to exercise daily, meditate and detox by making different food choices. Getting sick wasn’t in the cards, but the timing is beautiful. I can’t work out at the moment because I have limited energy and limited lung capacity, but I am still…

Mindful Monday #89 – You Are NOT Your Story

This time last year, I was working with Awaken Arts, a non-profit organization that believes that creativity is a catalyst for healing the soul. We work with at-risk teens to help them look at…

Called to Rest

I’m sitting in a Starbucks in the southwest as I write. Life is simpler, easier. Miles away are the busy, crowded streets of Los Angeles. I am home. I have fond memories here and I come back often to see my family and friends. I am here to center myself and gain clarity for my next…

NaBloPoMo

NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) starts tomorrow. This past Wednesday, I found out that this event exists and I have never heard of it before. I already wanted to focus the month on writing daily, so coming across this event felt serendipitous. November will be a big month for me for writing with this challenge,…
