Greener Pastures

The new year has taken off! I am one week away from graduating from one of my certification programs. I have one more test to complete for it. I am half way through another certification program. I have a test this weekend for that. In my spare time after school and work, I spend my…

Year of You

I am a few hours away from what I call the year of you. This journey I am about to embark on has officially been nine months in the making, unofficially four years in the making and in reality it has taken the span of my life to date. Every aspect of myself and life…

Desired Horizons

“I’m not happy with work.” “I’ve been thinking about moving.” These quotes are a tiny sample of what people have shared with me after I told them I am leaving. I wonder, if everyone in my life is in the same place as me? Or is my truth creating space for others to share their…

I Am Ready

I never thought I would say what in recent years was all I wanted to say.

All Signs Point to Yes

I’ve been crying a lot lately. There are many moments where I stop to catch my breath. I have moments of disbelief at the obstacles I have faced and have overcome. I can clearly remember what it felt like to be so lost and feel so alone at times. Oh, the fears I have released…

Tune #47 – How Far I’ll Go

The next morning, I tried everything to get my phone working, yet it continued to malfunction. Finally, I reached the last restort, REBOOT.  Not just any…

A Year in (Relative) Isolation

I was isolated for the majority of 2016 as a result of both chance and choice. This wasn’t the first year I have been in this place. My journey towards finding a work-life balance started in 2013, what I didn’t know is that it was the beginning of having moments when would be alone or feel isolated. Seeking…

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 Tuesday #6 – There’s Gotta Be More to Life

It’s Tuesday. I thought Mindful Monday was my favorite day, but Tuesday is winning me over with all this music. This weekend I met a friends friend who opened up to me about her discontentment in life. She had no idea how she got on the subject and I said nothing to prompt her into…
