Tune #52 – Might Not Like Me

Last week was challenging. I had an aha moment last Tuesday night, that I did not give the full space it needed to breathe. I woke up the next day to a new aha moment, which demanded immediate attention and expression. My Wednesday was spent being gentle to myself, slowing down and taking it easy. In school, I learned…

Tune Tuesday #50 – Yellow

It’s Tuesday! I have a song and a beautiful story to go with it. This song came into my life when I was in college. The band was popular at the time, but I didn’t listen to them or know who they were until a friend them introduced to me. She loved this band so…

Tune Tuesday #49 – This is Me

It’s Tuesday! I love todays song so much. I shared it everywhere, which made me think that I shared it here, when I had not. I am glad I waited, because sharing it now is more relevant. In our current cultural climate there are so many people that want to be seen and heard. Being…

Tune #46 – The Love Wouldn’t Die

Have you ever felt like you were going to die? Or like you were dying? I am not talking about putting yourself in harms way, having a terminal illness or hypochondria. I’m talking about death to your former self or the life that you know/ knew. This may sound, way out of left field, in…

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 #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…

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 #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 #35 – Do your friendships raise you up?

“I’ve never told anyone this before.” “My friends and I never talk about these things.” I’ve been thinking a lot about friendships lately. I am someone people call on to seek council, support or guidance. Since I can remember I have always looked for like minded people and always choose to be surrounded by people I felt comfortable…

Tune Tuesday #34 – Contemplating Life

Death has been circling me lately. Like my meditation on love, focus on my health and habits, lessons on energy and series that I have written in relation to the gifts of breakups, death wants to be seen and heard too. I am not a morbid person and I do not bring this topic up…

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…
