I am Thankful for: Ordinary Moments

This time of my life feels like true Technicolor. Dorothy left Kansas and stepped into colorful, vibrant OZ.  That is the best description I have that describes how rich, flavorful and vibrant this season is for me. I have not appreciated this season in the way I appreciate it now. OZ was a dream for…

Tune Tuesday #51 – By the Way, I Forgive You

“By the Way, I Forgive You” this line, from the song Every Time I Hear That Song by Brandi Carlile, echoed in my mind immediately after I first heard the song. There is something about her voice, coupled with the melody and the lyrics that sounds so familiar. In fact, when I first heard the song, I…

Mindful Monday #182 – Significant Relationships

Happy Labor Day! This morning started unplanned and showed me that beauty often emerges from that space. I woke up naturally this morning at 5:30am. I hoped my body would go back to sleep, but I started to reflect on moments and understandings of my year of you. About a month ago, my mom asked…

Mindful Monday #175 – Play Ball

I know I made the right choice. I know I am on the right path. This part of my life is over. Last week, I felt this finality for the first time and I have felt it every day since. I knew I was leaving, since October, and it gave me time to say my good…

Wisdom Wednesday #86 – What Does Love Look Like?

It’s Wednesday, February 28th and the last day of my Love and Attachment Meditation, which was exclusive to Instagram. I am both excited and a little sad that this is the end of this meditation series. When I set out to meditate daily on Love and Attachment, I was unsure. Could I meditate on this…

Wisdom Wednesday #87 – The Person You Should Really Marry

“I married everyone in sight except the one person I needed to marry to have a great relationship.” – Tracy McMillan It’s Wednesday and Valentine’s and boy do I have a wisdom for you! This is one of the best wisdoms that emerged when I meditated on marriage last year. That meditation brought so much…

Tune Tuesday #48 – No One Needs To Know

Love is cleaning and clearing my vision and perception. When I open myself up to any meditation the wisdom will continue to shows, even when I am not seated in meditation. Today’s Tune is one of my favorite songs from when I was a teenager. When I heard the song back then, it sounded like she…

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 Meditation #163 – Love them Just As They Are

I went to the Museum of Broken Relationships on a whim. The museum as described by the museum itself “is a global crowd-sourced project.” It has permanent museums in Los Angeles and Zagreb, Croatia. This museum has traveling exhibits that have been all over the world. People send in artifacts/ relics from their broken relationship…

Wisdom Wednesday #83 – Give Hope to Others

Happy Wednesday! If you follow me on Instagram or read last week’s Tune Tuesday #44, you are most likely aware that I felt called to re-read the “Mastery of Love” by Don Miguel Ruiz. Last years meditations on love and marriage on top of wisdom provided to me this year by my spiritual mentors called for…

I Dreamt About an Ex…

I woke up profoundly changed, about a month ago. This change occurred while I was asleep having, what at first felt like a nightmare, but in actuality it was a dream. Over seven years ago I ended a relationship that went on longer than it should have. I was young, naive and I did not know…

Wisdom Wednesday #82 – If Romantic Comedies Were Real

It’s Wednesday! I came across todays Wisdom during my marriage meditation. That meditation was eyeing because of the wisdom that showed up everywhere I turned. Today’s wisdom popped up during that specific meditation and it was just by chance that I saw it. Growing up, women over men are raised to believe in fairy tales. One…
