Happy Wednesday! If you follow me on Instagram or read last week’s Tune Tuesday #44, you are most likely aware that I felt called to re-read the “Mastery of Love” by Don Miguel Ruiz.

Mindful Monday #160 – Community Will Emerge

This year has been filled with unpleasant surprises. I’ve been lucky and I truly mean that with no sarcasm. These upsets and disappointments have been gradual. It hasn’t been all at once.

A Place I Never Imagined

Home get’s better and better with each visit. I visited my childhood home for the holidays as I do each year. When I first moved to Los Angeles, each time I visited home, I wanted to spend more time with friends over my family. I was young and still very connected to my home town community. Overtime…

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…
