Mindful Monday #106 – Mind, Body & Soul

Happy Monday! I am excited for this weeks posts. There are two topics that I have been dying to write about, but I needed time to find the words to express my thoughts and realizations regarding each of them. There have been a lot of realizations and shifts in my life and I’m loving all…

Mindful Monday #104 – Love with Open Eyes

I’m headed home! I finally get to relax at my home and rest in my own bed. I am extatic. Life is about the simple day to day joys. I’ve spent this past week making plans to fully integrate myself back into my community to grow more, learn more and meet new people. I can…

Mindful Monday # 102 – The Heart That Didn’t Love You

My month long meditation on love has shown me how expansive it is. Like the universe which constantly expands, love and happiness expand the same way. There are no limits in life. We create them in our minds and in the minds of others. Seeing love with new eyes is beautiful. I feel like I…

Mindful Monday #98 – Distance

Today marks three out of six days that I have been on location. The experience of distance at this time intrigues me. I have played with the idea of moving for sometime. I’ve even set the intention to the universe that I am willing to move, if/ when and where I need to move, to…

Mindful Monday #97 – Make Sure it Makes You Happy

It’s late Monday night. I’m still at work. This weekend was the perfect balance of what rejuvenates me. I slept in and rested, got errands done, explored this new temporary city of mine and went to two theatre events. While at dinner on Sunday night I thought, I’m happy. A few weeks ago, my friend…

Mindful Monday #94 – Acceptance in the Present

“I feel like I woke up from a long sleep,” I told my friend this weekend. It’s been two and a half days since I have been back in Los Angeles. I went  home to visit my family and heal from a cold, and stayed longer because I was very sick. Now that I’m back,…

Mindful Monday #80 – Reflection

Happy Monday! Tomorrow is the start of a new month which is also my birth month and I have begun the process of reflecting on my personal year. This year has been a hard every step of the way, at the same time has been poetry. Since I am in a reflective state I wanted…

Mindful Monday #79 – Move Closer to the Truth

Happy Monday. My life is becoming even more of an adventure. I sort of feel like Alice in Wonderland at times with some strange experiences that I have had as I follow my intuition. In response to my Sunday post, I didn’t need to look to hard to find a quote that speaks to this…

Mindful Monday #76 – Do the Impossible

Happy Monday! This weekend was amazing. I had one of the best realizations this weekend that I have ever had, and am excited to write about it for Friday’s post. During the month of June, my life was in winter. I retraced my steps and wondered if my journey was worth it or if I…

Mindful Monday #73 – New Growth

The happiest of Monday’s to you my friends. This weekend was amazing and filled with so much good that I am glowing. I went to a fundraiser event for an arts therapy non-profit, attended a pot luck dinner, I got my chores done, and on top of that there was spontaneity and a lot of…

Mindful Monday #66 – The Five W’s of Life

The final day of the Spring session for Awaken Arts is this weekend. I’ve been very emotional lately as a result of working with these girls through the program. I have heard their stories and use them to inform the speeches that I write each week. Already, I am thinking of how I can sum…

Mindful Monday #62 – Are You Happy?

Happy Monday!  I’m back in Los Angeles.  I’m ready to write more reflections posts about what I have learned and how my life has changed since I took my leap of faith.  For this weeks Mindful Monday life is as simple as asking the following question: Are You Happy?  The perceived challenge to this question…

Mindful Monday #61 – Regret

Happy Monday! I am currently out of state, at home with my family for the week. Coming home is always a blessing because I get to spend time with friends and family. For me, home is a place where I can rest and relax. I always gain great insights here because I am able to…
