Tune Tuesday #25 – Everyone Wants to Be Loved

For the Month of February I set the intention to meditate on LOVE. I want to sit in the essence of love so it can teach me beyond what I have experienced and been socialized to believe. I want to learn what I don’t know that I don’t know. Typically when we think of love, we think of…

A Place Called Home

This weekend was ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL and by far the best weekend of 2016. I loved every bit of it. In the past three months, I have only been in Los Angeles for 12 days, which has provided so much perspective on every aspect of my life. Living on location for a month has helped me…

Wisdom Wednesday #57 – Starved for Connection

“Babies get the most amount of touch, while the elderly get the least.” Ever since I heard that stat in college, it stuck with me. As a young girl, I remember feeling sympathetic towards the elderly that I saw in the community and at church who were alone. As a very, young girl I was…

I am Thankful for: Family

This is my fourth week home with my family. I came home to spend time with my new niece for her first Halloween and I stayed longer because I was very ill. Now that I am better, I am still here because the holidays are here and my family needs me at this time. I…

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…

Mindful Monday #77 – Speak With Love

Happy Monday! We have a little over four months to go until the end of the year. My birthday is next month and it kicks off several rituals and reflections that I do each year. I am curious about my end of the year reflection post because each month has been so different. I don’t…

The Cusp of Change

“Without fail the universe provided exactly what I need when I need it.”

Tune Tuesday #4 – Love Again

I have a friend that I’ve known for about 6 years, but we have only become real friends within the past two years. This friend always says that I am their only friend and each time I hear this it startles me. I’m concerned because I only see this friend on occasion, when I visit…

Love Wins

“When we lead with pure love everyone wins and when equality wins we all win too.”

Tune Tueday #3 – Peace at a Distance

From a distance everything looks at peace within society, our communities and within ourselves. When we dig deeper or when acts of violence occur, we are reminded that their is more going on underneath the surface. We should know our loved ones well, but many times we don’t. If we stop to think about the…

Accommodation

I flew home last weekend to throw a baby shower for my sister the doc student. I have two older sisters, my sister, the doc student, is the middle sister. (I am the youngest.) She is the first in my family to have a baby and we are excited that she will be having a…

Beauty within the Struggle

I am smiling the largest smile as I write this post. Even though my struggle saga continues and life isn’t letting up, I still have so much to be thankful for and so much to smile about. Why am I smiling? I’m smiling because I am growing and my perspective is changing. I’m smiling because…

Mindful Monday #61 – Regret

Happy Monday! I am currently out of state, at home with my family for the week. Coming home is always a blessing because I get to spend time with friends and family. For me, home is a place where I can rest and relax. I always gain great insights here because I am able to…

Wisdom Wednesday #30 – Give Good Away

Everyone feels alone and there is such an inter-connectivity among us that I not only see but feel, the more I move forward down this journey, develop my voice and step into my greatness. Life can get hard and we can get overwhelmed but that is no reason for us to abandon the mission for…
