Tune Tuesday #51 – By the Way, I Forgive You

“By the Way, I Forgive You” this line, from the song Every Time I Hear That Song by Brandi Carlile, echoed in my mind immediately after I first heard the song. There is something about her voice, coupled with the melody and the lyrics that sounds so familiar. In fact, when I first heard the song, I…

Tune Tuesday #48 – No One Needs To Know

Love is cleaning and clearing my vision and perception. When I open myself up to any meditation the wisdom will continue to shows, even when I am not seated in meditation. Today’s Tune is one of my favorite songs from when I was a teenager. When I heard the song back then, it sounded like she…

Tune Tuesday #45 – Fix My Eyes On You

Today’s tune is a song that is newer to me. It was by chance that I heard it on Spotify. I still don’t know how the song came through my playlist, but it grabbed me was the catchy beat. Since, the song has captivated me was the lyrics. This song is a Christian song, and…

Tune Tuesday #44 – Live for Today

I am currently re-reading “The Mastery of Love” by Don Miguel Ruiz. There are lot of concepts in the book that I now fully understand because they parallel my experiences or understandings. Like most self-help/ mindfulness books I’ve read, it calls for us to shed any dead weight, baggage or anything that no longer serves…

Tune Tuesday #42 – The Unmarried Female

Happy Tuesday! The US wedding market is a 55 billion dollar industry and a 300 billion dollars industry world wide. Companies make major profits from those who say I do and may even take delight when people walk down the aisle more than once. In college, I remember reading academic articles about the wedding industry…

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…

Tune #40 – Oh!

“Nothing in my life has changed this year with the exception of [one thing].” My friend told me as we caught up last week. Even though I started the conversation, I deliberately did not share any or all my good news. I did not tell her I was the happiest I have ever been, that…

Tune #39 – Hope Will Lead Us On

“[This song] made me think of you and your journey,” brother Teddy texted me one afternoon in February.  He sent a link to the song, “Hope Will Lead Us On,” by the Barlow Girl. When I received that text that day, the timing was perfect. I never visited nor did I have a desire to visit Las Vegas prior…

Tune Tuesday #33 – Wake Me Up

I’ve been thinking about darkness a lot lately. We fear the dark when we are kids because we imagine that there are monsters in our closets or under our beds. As adults we out grow those childhood fears and illusions. Last year was a tough year each step of the way. Going into the year I…

Tune Tuesday #31 – The Bully Within

I remember when I was a kid, bullies existed, but not in the numbers that they exist today. In the digital age, the stretch of bullying has extended past the classroom and school and gone into the individual homes of a child. Unlike previous generations, who had a safe haven at home; kids and teens…
