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 #47 – How Far I’ll Go

Why do we do what we do? This is an age old question that has intrigued social science scholars to continually study our thoughts, habits, human interactions, family dynamics, child development etc. to gain deeper understanding of people. While there is an abundance of scholarly knowledge, what if their is a spiritual component that we can…

Mindful Monday #147 – The Love You Long For

Happy Monday! It’s Valentine’s Day eve. Socially Valentines Day has focused more on romantic love versus’ other forms of love that are sometimes present in our daily lives. Romantic love is fantastic, but it is not the end all be all. Some people across the world, who in relationships, do not always or have ever felt…

Women & the Solar Plexus

In order to do it all (only if you want to do it all) you must take care of yourself first, honor your power, renew your energy and take all the rest you need.

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 #123 – I Love and Accept Myself

I have been trying to diligently write a book for the past few weeks. While I am writing, I am in a place of surrender. New insights have emerged along with memories I had long forgot about. I know I am uncovering something or being lead somewhere valuable for my writing or the next chapter of my life. I…

I’m Thankful For: Freedom

This year, I had a few realizations that I have not written about yet. I have only verbally shared some of those realizations with a handful of friends. Some realizations require backstory in order to grasp the depth of the realization, others I am in the midst of understanding deeper and some I am not…

Mindful Monday #117 – Inner Peace

Last week was blissful. This week has been a continuation of that amazing feeling. The moment I stepped into self-acceptance, I felt my body soften into a calm that I have never experienced. 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…

I’m Thankful For: Self Acceptance

The weekend felt ordinary. Late Monday night I realized more happened below the surface than I could see. I was home more then I was out. The 3 intentional activities that I did, were filled with open, positive people who are more strangers than acquaintances or friends. As we talked, each person shed light on…

Tune Tuesday #31 – The Bully Within

I remember when I was a kid, bullies existed, but not in the numbers that they exist today. In the digital age, the stretch of bullying has extended past the classroom and school and gone into the individual homes of a child. Unlike previous generations, who had a safe haven at home; kids and teens…
