I’m Thankful For: Self Acceptance

The weekend felt ordinary. Late Monday night I realized more happened below the surface than I could see. I was home more then I was out. The 3 intentional activities that I did, were filled with open, positive people who are more strangers than acquaintances or friends. As we talked, each person shed light on…

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…

Wisdom Wednesday #62 – Say Something

When I was headed home to my month of writing almost two years ago, I had a fair well coffee with a new friend. Conversation flowed easily between us, but there was moments of silence that could have been filled with words. Many time we speak out of our discomfort of silence, but in this case their were words that wanted…

Life in Full Bloom

This week was the best week of my life. Prior to finding my voice in the Fall of 2013, I set the goal at the start of that year to balance my life. I did not know what I was getting into when I made that choice. And I didn’t think the choice would change…

The Love Within

“What are your goals for the year?” My friend asked. Silence. I was speechless and said nothing. For as long as I can remember, I have always known what my goals are for the coming year; but this December 2015 was different. I had just healed from being very, very sick for a month and…

I’m Thankful For: Clarity

I have worked on location three times in six years. My earlier experiences on location each pointed me towards an area of my life that I needed to explore further. This current experience has brought overall clarity in all aspects of my life, specifically in the areas that I have worked on these past three…

Mindful Monday #99 – Not Afraid

Working on location has been so insightful and it is one of the best things that I didn’t know I needed. I did not want to work on location for three years because I knew it would be more demanding. I was right. Work has been more demanding then I anticipated. However, so much has…

Life at Light Speed

Happy New Year! It’s so good to be back here writing. We have only been in the the new year for ten days. I am amazed with how different this year has already unfolded compared to last year. Last year, with my permission, the universe took away anything that no longer serves me, including friendships. I was left…

Mindful Monday #95 – Forget What is Gone

My life has been a roller coaster. This year has been inconsistent and I haven’t had time  to fully digest my experiences. In my voice class yesterday, my practice started with a free write. Through writing, I realized that I am tired of letting go. Since I chose to face my fears a year ago,…

Facing Your Fears Can Be Isolating

I will be headed out of town for work in a few days. I have a lot to do to prepare for my trips, yet I sit and write. I am writing because I need to. I’ve been having trouble writing these past few weeks and I don’t know why? As I caught up with…

Tune Tuesday #23 – Land of Confusion

I want to scream. I am pretty sure you want to scream too. The direction our society is headed is frightening. On top of the river of violence that is reported on what feels like a weekly and sometimes daily basis and racism being so blatant recently, as it has been in our history, it is a…

I am Thankful for: The Good Samaritan

Violence and more violence. Deep sigh. History is no longer repeating itself with each generation; it’s now repeating itself in shorter amounts of time. I have a lot of thoughts on all this violence and it’s systematic causes. I don’t want to bring up arguments or play into rhetoric because there is enough of it…
