I am Thankful for: Ordinary Moments

This time of my life feels like true Technicolor. Dorothy left Kansas and stepped into colorful, vibrant OZ.  That is the best description I have that describes how rich, flavorful and vibrant this season is for me. I have not appreciated this season in the way I appreciate it now. OZ was a dream for…

I am Thankful for: My Return

It’s past midnight on Wednesday night, yet I am wide awake. I just wrapped a six-week, eye-opening course about the Hero’s Journey. This class was one of the best classes I have taken in my history of education, workshops, conferences and spiritual classes. As a mindfulness blogger I am committed to speaking my truth and…

Mindful Monday #154 – The Less Attached You Are

Happy Monday! It’s great to be back with a Monday post. The past two weeks of work have been hectic, which spilled into my weekend with much needed rest. What emerged during that time were freeing realizations. I reached a new level of letting go, that I never thought was possible, because I didn’t know this division could exist….

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 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…

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 #87 – One More Round

This weekend was a little over whelming. I am enjoying the current state of my life and the fruits of all my labor. I was able to catch up with a lot of friends that I haven’t seen in months. It was so good to see everyone. There is a bit of sadness in my…

Home Sweet Home

Welcome home.  For many, this time of year is filled with reconnects, reunions and trips back to our home states, cities and towns.  We head back to the places that shaped us in our early phases of life, we come home.  For many coming home is a place where we can rest, rejuvenate and celebrate…

Dropping In

Last week I dropped in with Soul Sister.  This was the first time in a while that we were able to really catch up like we used to before I moved.  I call her Soul Sister because she is like a sister to me.  She and I tease each other and at times argue like…

Home for the Holidays

“We don’t remember days, we remember moments.” -Cesare Pavese Coming home for the holidays had a deep meaning for me since I moved to Los Angeles. My first visit home was for Thanksgiving in 2010.  It had been two months since I moved, yet the move itself made home feel foreign.  My life completely changed. …
