Dam to Life

Have you ever had a moment in your life where everything felt right? Slowly your hard work started to come together and pay off in ways you couldn’t imagine. That’s how the beginning of the year was for me, but life quickly changed as soon as February came around. Since then, my life has had…

Breaking Through

It’s been a week since I decided that I needed to move on from a difficult situation. I really, really, really wanted that situation to work and I needed it to work, for many reasons. But the situation was not working. I am having growing pains with my leap of faith and I feel like…

My Aching Heart

Apparently this year is the year where I write blog posts that scare me. Of the handful of blog post that I have hesitated to both write and post this year, this one has caused me to hold my breath because I am terrified of what I will uncover. I don’t know where to start?…

In Good Company

A few weeks ago I attended a business woman’s mentoring event. As I drove to the location and approached the doors of the event there was no sense of nervousness that came over me. It wasn’t until I entered the room that I felt a bit nervous. Sticking to my old habits, I quickly found…

Double Down

It is hard to live in the unknown, but everything in life is unknown. Life is created moment by moment and some moments we can and cannot predict. I’m currently living in a moment that I predicted a few weeks ago, but never imagined a few months ago. My current situation in life will work…

White Blank Page

I’ve been feeling antsy lately like there is something more I could be doing, but I don’t know what that is? I haven’t figured out what prompted this feeling and where it is guiding me. January was All Things New: new job, new apartment, new friends, new community involvement and a new leadership role. February…

Mindful Monday #59 – Turn the Page

Do you ever have a moment in your life where you wish you had a camera to capture the moment?  Last week, I really wish I had a video camera or a documentary team to capture the main events and realizations that I had.  What. A. Week.  Something has epically shifted in my life and…

Mindful Monday #55 – Self Love

We are in the final week of February.  I am relieved that the month is almost done.  I hope the month ends sweeter then it’s sour beginning.  My goal for the month is to write a post each week that reflects the various types of love that exist.  To my surprise, based on what occurred…

Heartbroken

Last Valentines day I wrote “How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day – Single Edition.”  It was my intention to follow up that post, with a “couples edition” post this year.  However, I am not dating anyone and I am nowhere near a romantic relationship, so that idea is tabled.  Like last weeks post, this weeks post…

Let the Dust Settle

I wrote this piece to be posted last Friday, but my vulnerability radar went through the roof.  I decided to wait a week, to think about this piece before I post it and still the radar is high.  It’s not the honesty that I fear, but the realizations that will come as the result of…

The Road Less Traveled

As my month of writing approached last year, I said to the universe that I wanted to let go of anything and everything that wasn’t working for me.  Letting go to that extreme, on top of a leap of faith, is a very powerful mixture.  Be warned if you in anyway feel inspired to go…

Giving Tuesday – Awaken Your Heart

There is Black Friday, Cyber Monday and I recently learned that today is Giving Tuesday.  Of the three days mentioned today is my favorite day because is focuses energy not on consumerism which, no matter how hard you try, can never fuel or feed your soul like generosity.  In generosity there is a feeling of…

Mindful Monday #43 – Surrender

Last year I learned to loosen my grip on life. This year, I decided to let go of any remaining grip I had. The grip that I am talking about, is the grip that everyone has on their life from time to time, that makes life feel safe, secure and predictable. That very grip can…
