Redefine You

We are often defined by what we do, not who we are.

30 Days of Prayer : Violence

Happy Friday! Today’s prayer and meditation really moved me. As I start to step out into a leadership role to build community, I am starting to think about the people that I have met and the stories they have shared with me. The stories that stand out the most are the most challenging moments of…

Tune Tuesday #28 – Happy

“You’ve never been to Vegas?” My friends ask that question each time I tell them, I’m from Arizona and I’ve never been to Vegas. When I was girl, I was curious about the city, because of the movies and as I got older, I never cared to visit the city. This past December everything changed,…

Mindful Monday #105 – Fall in Love with Taking Care of Yourself

Today makes one week since I have been home. My first few days back felt like I just moved here for the first time. I forgot what that experience felt like and I was surprised to experience it all again. Oh the ways I have grown in the past two months while I was working on location. I am a new person….

Facing Your Fears Can Be Isolating

I will be headed out of town for work in a few days. I have a lot to do to prepare for my trips, yet I sit and write. I am writing because I need to. I’ve been having trouble writing these past few weeks and I don’t know why? As I caught up with…

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…

The Soulmate – 1 Year Anniversary – Reflection

One year ago today, I was in Arizona for my month of writing and went out for a girls night. A week prior, I had just forgiven myself for my actions or lack of action in a relationship that went on longer then it should have and weighed heavily on me since we break up….

Choose Your Own Adventure

How often do you think about your childhood? I rarely think about mine. In fact, I usually have to be prompted by someone to think about it, otherwise I spend my time thinking about other things regarding my present and future. From time to time, I think about high school, but only in relation to…

Wisdom Wednesday #34 – Note to My 13 Year- Old Self

It’s Wednesday!  This week I am preparing my speech to give to at-risk youth this weekend through a program called Awaken Arts.  Along with sharing my story of my past, I am interweaving quotes and mantras into my speech for the youth to carry with them throughout the week and throughout their life.  While I…

Mindful Monday #63 – Reflecting on the Past

Good morning.  Happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  A lot has happened since I last posted, even though it’s only been three days. The weekend was filled with friends new and old, several needed realizations and more strides towards strengthening my voice. The weekend was nothing short of amazing.  My life is…

Get Real – My Leap of Faith – Reflection

Take a moment to think about where you are at this moment. Really take the time to reflect on every aspect of your life: job, career, love life, health, and social life. Where were you last year at this time? Have you or your life changed or has it stayed the same? Are you the…

2014: The Year Of…

Just when I thought I was done with my 2014 year-end reflection, another reflection popped in my head and it’s bugging me to give it air. You know you are doing something right in life when the lessons that will help guide you to the next level of your evolution appear to you versus you…
