Tune #43 – Marry the Man Today

I am currently meditating on marriage. Last year I realized I was ready for marriage and what came next was a surprising universal counter argument to re-think that desire. Now, I am trying to make sense of the information I learned in classes and through books and personal stories people told me. Traditional values around marriage, dating…

Tune Tuesday #42 – The Unmarried Female

Happy Tuesday! The US wedding market is a 55 billion dollar industry and a 300 billion dollars industry world wide. Companies make major profits from those who say I do and may even take delight when people walk down the aisle more than once. In college, I remember reading academic articles about the wedding industry…

Tune Tuesday #41 -Love Fearlessly

These days it feels like the world is little darker, colder and on edge. It feels as though we have forgotten that our neighbors are not strangers, but our brothers and sisters. It feels like we have forgotten that we are a web of stories, histories and experiences that at first glance appear to divide us. When…

The Moment You’ve Been Waiting For

I don’t know what Tuesday holds for us? If it is anything like how 2016 election night was and the despair felt among many populations, we need to brace ourselves. Hope for the best and prepare for the worst. I never thought I’d say that in a blog that is meant to be positive and up…

Tune #40 – Be What Tomorrow Needs

Tomorrow is TUESDAY and not like any other Tuesday. It’s election day. My stomach is in knots. After a group meditation last week, my heart dropped as I heard two women say that they would not vote because they didn’t want to make a choice between the two main presidential candidates. I’ve been meditating a lot on…

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…

Tune Tuesday #35 – Do your friendships raise you up?

“I’ve never told anyone this before.” “My friends and I never talk about these things.” I’ve been thinking a lot about friendships lately. I am someone people call on to seek council, support or guidance. Since I can remember I have always looked for like minded people and always choose to be surrounded by people I felt comfortable…

Tune Tuesday #34 – Contemplating Life

Death has been circling me lately. Like my meditation on love, focus on my health and habits, lessons on energy and series that I have written in relation to the gifts of breakups, death wants to be seen and heard too. I am not a morbid person and I do not bring this topic up…

Tune Tuesday #33 – Wake Me Up

I’ve been thinking about darkness a lot lately. We fear the dark when we are kids because we imagine that there are monsters in our closets or under our beds. As adults we out grow those childhood fears and illusions. Last year was a tough year each step of the way. Going into the year I…

Tune Tuesday #31 – The Bully Within

I remember when I was a kid, bullies existed, but not in the numbers that they exist today. In the digital age, the stretch of bullying has extended past the classroom and school and gone into the individual homes of a child. Unlike previous generations, who had a safe haven at home; kids and teens…

Tune Tuesday #30 – Heart of Gold

My heart is hurting. I do not want to write about today’s topic. Deep sigh. This is where my heart is … hurting. I have to follow it, honor it and let it speak. I ran into an ex this weekend. I met him a year ago. I remember when we first met. As I…
