Wisdom Wednesday #83 – Give Hope to Others

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. Last years meditations on love and marriage on top of wisdom provided to me this year by my spiritual mentors called for…

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. One ends, then another begins. I’ve been able to have mini breathers in between. Being uncomfortable, while it’s uncomfortable, it’s a gift. A…

You Have a Choice to Get Off the Train

“It seems like you were on the train.” I told the woman with tired, worn eyes. “On the train?” She asked in a confused tone. In the moments leading up to what she revealed to me, I found myself linking her experience to a similar experience I had over eight years ago. A romantic relationship, which…

Marriage: Overexposure

I’m currently in a month long meditation on Marriage. I was ecstatic to realize, in February 2016, I worked through a common fear most people have around marriage. What perplexed me was having that realization as a single, non-coupled, non-dating woman. Three months later, I was t-boned by the truths that challenged societies image and ideas of marriage,…

Wisdom Wednesday #76 – Keep the Spark Alive

  How we relate to our friends is, in someways, the groundwork for how we relate to our romantic partners.  How we treat ourselves speaks to how we allow others to treat us. I’m currently in a spiritual discussion/ meditation/ deeper analysis on marriage. Both love and relationship are part of the foundation an ideal marriage. There is…

Mindful Monday #147 – The Love You Long For

Happy Monday! It’s Valentine’s Day eve. Socially Valentines Day has focused more on romantic love versus’ other forms of love that are sometimes present in our daily lives. Romantic love is fantastic, but it is not the end all be all. Some people across the world, who in relationships, do not always or have ever felt…

Building the Case for Marriage

Last year was filled with many surprises. The themes that came up in my life were even more surprising, because some of them defined my year. Marriage. One of the most charged words in the English language. Everyone has an opinion and view on the topic. There are several images and ideas that are freely associated when…

Mindful Monday #145 – Love Makes You A Better Person

Happy Monday! There are only a few days left before we step into the month of February. Time flies. For the past two years, I have meditated on Love. In 2015, I focused on the different types of love that exists: platonic love, romantic love, family love and self love. What resulted in that meditation was…

Cast Out The Darkness

I feel on edge on a daily basis and that is not my norm.  Someone tried to pick a fight with me online yesterday via Twitter. People like to hide behind handles. I felt this individual wanted to be right and wouldn’t really hear me. I could verbally bitch slap and immobilize someone if I…

Tune Tuesday #41 -Love Fearlessly

These days it feels like the world is little darker, colder and on edge. It feels as though we have forgotten that our neighbors are not strangers, but our brothers and sisters. It feels like we have forgotten that we are a web of stories, histories and experiences that at first glance appear to divide us. When…
