Tune Tuesday # 58 – We Can Work It Out

It’s Tuesday and boy do we need music now more than ever. Instead of drowning out the noise, we need to cut through it because the noise can over take us or even overwhelm up. Even though I have a mindfulness and meditation practice, I find myself challenged to remain calm and at peace at…

Rise from the Mud

The only way is both through the struggle and up. May we choose this course.​

I am Thankful for: The Gift of Space

COVID 19 has meant different things to me at different parts of the year. It March, it meant Anxiety and Fear because the U.S. was given little to no information about the virus and how to navigate it. In April, it meant adjusting to a full house, since my sister and niece moved back in,…

Dare to Be Real

Social distancing is asking us to be real in ways that is proving to be a challenge.

I am Thankful for: Recent Memories

“What was the last meal you had at a restaurant?” My sister asked sometime last week during dinner. It took me a awhile to answer her question because I could not rember. Everything changed so quickly, yet the days feel so long and drawn out. The days blend together making each day feel like Sunday….

The Distance Between Us

6 Feet Apart. Social Distancing. Work from Home. School from Home. COVID-19 has forced everyone to stay home, creating space between people, families and communities for the health and safety of all. There are some defiant, not taking it serious, I do what I want people that are making it worse for everyone. If you…

This is Not Normal

Our current reality, that people are calling the “new normal” is something else. I am grateful for the conversations that we are having around topics that range from: health care, access to resources, housing, work from home, living wages, sick leave etc. There are so many critical conversations that we are having as a country,…

Mindful Monday #187 – Breathe

Happy Monday! I understand it can be challenging to find happiness on a Monday such as this in the middle of a pandemic. The life that we have grown accustomed to is disrupted by COVID -19 which has brought about a lot of uncertainty, events postponed or canceled, businesses temporarily closed, some of us working…

Awakened In Loving Gratitude

I am wide awake. I facilitated a night time Yoga Nidra for my sister (the doc student) on Tuesday, before she left town to go back home. After the Nidra, I gave myself time to wind down and reset before I went to sleep. As I laid down to sleep thoughts circled my mind. I…

The Union of Love and Peace

I am in a current month long Meditation on Love and Peace. Since the month began, I have been sharing a wisdom a day on Instagram. Since February 2015, I have dedicated the month to writing about Love. I first wrote a series of posts about different types of love, which evolved into a weekly…

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 #183 – The Backburner

Wisdom is everywhere. We hear it from our teachers or parents/ guardians when we are young. We gain wisdom with each experience we have from childhood and beyond. We may read wisdom in poems or books or hear it in lectures or conversations. We may even speak our personal wisdom to our friends and colleagues….

Mindful Monday #181 – Restore Balance

Happy Monday! As summer winds down we may find ourselves at the start of something new. We may have a new schedule or be at a new school/ career or in a new home or city. Or maybe we are experiencing life without someone like a parent, friend, a partner or a special co-worker. Or…
