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…”

The Storm Has Passed!

This year has been filled with a series of trials that were harder than hard to experience but all valuable because of the lessons I received. My personal year (in numerology) is a nine year, which is the end of the cycle before I begin a new nine year journey (which starts on my birthday)….

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…

Let the Dust Settle

I wrote this piece to be posted last Friday, but my vulnerability radar went through the roof.  I decided to wait a week, to think about this piece before I post it and still the radar is high.  It’s not the honesty that I fear, but the realizations that will come as the result of…

Enjoy the Moment

Happy Friday.  This year has really taken off at light speed and I feel a bit disoriented.  I am doing my best to find my footing and gain balance with the pace of this new year.  While the days and weeks fly by, there have been several moments since the start of the year that…

Mindful Monday #50 – What You Really Want

I know today isn’t Monday and Tuesday is almost done.  For a good portion of the evening, I thought tomorrow was Thursday?  It’s already January 20th, where did the first part of the month go?  My life has been a whirlwind since the year began.  Everything is different.  Everything.  New job, new apartment, a flood…

Mindful Monday #24 – Balance

This weekend I saw a show titled “A Sense of Balance,” by Stoney Lamar.  The show had various sculptures made entirely of wood.  The wood curved in ways that felt natural as though it was taken directly from nature.  At the same time the wood work of the artist was also evident and subtle.  The…

Mindful Monday #18 – Acceptance in Life

Good morning.  I have two weeks left before I head back to my life in LA.  As the weeks move forward during my month of meditation aka month of writing, I am pleased with all the realizations and life truths that have come up everywhere I turn.  I had another full circle moment (Coming Full…

What is Success?

“I lost feeling in my hands.” One of my friends revealed over lunch. He is an entrepreneur who built his company since he was a master’s student. For years, he worked year round on his business with minimal breaks. One day he lost sensation in his hands and it hurt him to use them. I…
