Mindful Monday #165 – Set An Intention

Happy Monday! As you are probably well aware, today was a solar eclipse. I hope you were able to step away from work or your necessary tasks and pause to experience th eclipse. Also occurring today is a new moon. New moons are a great time to set intentions for new habits, thoughts, energy shifts…

Mindful Meditation #138 – Live in Nonresistance

My life is accelerating… all at once. I can hardly catch my breath. I hardly have enough time to rest. I feel like I am being pushed and pulled at the same time and in the same direction. I have never been in this space before. I have been pushed or pulled, but never at the…

Mindful Monday #127 – Transitions

In yoga, my instructor asked the class to focus on transitions. To me yoga is the practice of self-care. You are not competing with anyone, but yourself. Somedays you feel fantastic and are kicking each poses butt. Other days you may feel off, loose balance in your pose or don’t feel as strong. To help…

Mindful Monday #125 – Pause

The metaphorical water of my life feels at peace too. It’s beautiful. I am not a master or expert on inner peace, self-acceptance…

Mindful Monday #112 – Energy

Improv is back in my life and I love it! I have been studying for over three years. I first studied the craft for a year and half and I noticed that I had a long way to go. Being completely raw and real on stage was frightening every time and it did not seem…

Mindful Monday #108 – Habits

Let’s talk about habits. As a goal-setter I have developed a lot of great habits around setting goals, tracking progress and adjusting a goal based on that progress. Goals have taught me different things at different times of my life. My most recent lesson with goals is to allow them to lead me where I…
