Mindful Monday #59 – Turn the Page

Do you ever have a moment in your life where you wish you had a camera to capture the moment?  Last week, I really wish I had a video camera or a documentary team to capture the main events and realizations that I had.  What. A. Week.  Something has epically shifted in my life and…

Mindful Monday #58 – Voyage of Discovery

Ever since I saw the musical Wicked, I have noticed that their has been a shift in my awareness.  In fact, this awareness shift has been very gradual, but was fully brought to my attention when I wrote my Wicked post.  The way I deconstructed the musical is the way I have been deconstructing a…

Mindful Monday #57 – Gentle Beauty

Happy Monday!   Last week was amazing, in the way that I needed it to be for me.  It was also a bit crazy.  I always carry questions with me that I think about for weeks at a time.  I excavate the answers through conversations, sound bites I over hear, things that come up or anything…

Mindful Monday #56 – Make YOU Happy

It’s still Monday!  The day is not done. March officially kicks off my “back to basics” goal to get back into the habit of my Mind, Body and Soul goals i.e. meditating daily (soul), bring back yoga (body/ health) and digging deeper with Improv (Mind). While I set these goals in the past and achieved…

Mindful Monday #51 – A Note on Affirmations

My goodness next week is February. I can’t believe the first month of the year is almost a memory. When I chose to live my life boldly, and take my leap of faith, a friend recommended that I read a different type of goal setting book called “The Desire Map,” written by Danielle Laporte. The…

Mindful Monday #50 – What You Really Want

I know today isn’t Monday and Tuesday is almost done.  For a good portion of the evening, I thought tomorrow was Thursday?  It’s already January 20th, where did the first part of the month go?  My life has been a whirlwind since the year began.  Everything is different.  Everything.  New job, new apartment, a flood…

The new year is upon us in less than three days.  Where did the time go?  While this whole year felt like it was going so fast, there were moments where it felt like it slowed down and moments when it felt like time stopped.  I felt every moment of this year both large and…
