Wisdom Wednesday #89 – What We Care About

It’s 1AM in my part of the world as I write this post. This is the bit of quiet time that I get to unwind from the day with this new, temporary normal. I don’t have anxiety, but I have been more anxious in the past few days. There are so many variables. There is…

Mindful Monday #178 – What is Right?

Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe Out. We have had a lot of challenging news, over the past few weeks. It feels like it’s all becoming far too common. I was trained in Level 1 of Trauma Resiliency in March, and since then trauma is another lens in which I see the world. I hope…

The Moment You’ve Been Waiting For

I don’t know what Tuesday holds for us? If it is anything like how 2016 election night was and the despair felt among many populations, we need to brace ourselves. Hope for the best and prepare for the worst. I never thought I’d say that in a blog that is meant to be positive and up…

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…

Mindful Monday #100 – Love is Messier

Love it or hate this month in our culture is the month of Love. If you are in a relationship for the first time or the best relationship of your life you are in heaven right now. I’m happy for you. If you are single ,on the other hand, you may love this month, dread…

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…

Tune Tuesday #22 – Where is the Love?

In November, I was in isolation from the familiar. I wasn’t in Los Angeles, but home with my family. While I visit my family often, I didn’t have the energy, or communication with friends that have become standard during my visits home. Being sick shifted all my plans for the month. A week visit home…

Mindful Monday #91 – Respect Everyone

“What is wrong with people?” “What is going on?” These are a few common questions that I have heard a lot these past few years. I’m still shocked by the turn of events in our world. News keeps getting more grim. There is a real battle between light and darkness, love and hate, good and evil,…
