I am Thankful for: Recent Memories

“What was the last meal you had at a restaurant?” My sister asked sometime last week during dinner. It took me a awhile to answer her question because I could not rember. Everything changed so quickly, yet the days feel so long and drawn out. The days blend together making each day feel like Sunday….

Mindful Monday #182 – Significant Relationships

Happy Labor Day! This morning started unplanned and showed me that beauty often emerges from that space. I woke up naturally this morning at 5:30am. I hoped my body would go back to sleep, but I started to reflect on moments and understandings of my year of you. About a month ago, my mom asked…

Soulful Cries

I’ve been very emotional these past two weeks. This past week alone I’ve cried almost every day. If I cried in public, it might alarm people because of the depth of my tears. Amaya Angelou in her poem “Still I Rise” would call my tears “soulful cries”. As you read this, you may think that…

The Beauty of Timing

I wrapped a movie last week, I started a new movie this week, I’ve been working with a non-profit for the past few Saturdays and I am taking classes in my limited down time. Tonight, with tired eyes and a hungry stomach, I decided to grab a bite before I headed off to bed. I…

Wisdom Wednesday #70 – Why Do We Do What We Do?

Happy Wednesday! This summer I started reading a book called Eastern Body, Western Mind. The book details psychological human development with the chakra system. It is one of my all time favorite books. I had to stop reading because of the depth of it’s truth. This weekend, I reopened the book and started to re-read the chapter on…

Tune Tuesday #35 – Do your friendships raise you up?

“I’ve never told anyone this before.” “My friends and I never talk about these things.” I’ve been thinking a lot about friendships lately. I am someone people call on to seek council, support or guidance. Since I can remember I have always looked for like minded people and always choose to be surrounded by people I felt comfortable…

I’m Thankful For: Believing Mirrors

I was closed off for a good part of my life when I was younger. I was blind to this fact too. People have always been open with me since I remember and I thought I was open with them too. They talked, I listened and I never said much. I got away with listening and I probably still…

I’m Thankful for: Good Conversation

These past two weeks I have caught up with a few friends and mentors who I have not seen in months, years or almost a decade. Good friendships that picks up where they left off are the best. Yesterday, while having coffee with a friend, I realized I am thankful for good conversations. My friend…

Tune Tuesday #9 – The Power of Goodbye

Many of my friends are navigating the world of dating and romantic relationships. Within this past few weeks alone, I have heard stories around online dating, long distance relationships, heartbreak, new love, weird dates and break-ups and the long awaited apology. Earlier this year, I had an unexpected experience that I didn’t know I needed….
