Tune Tuesday #55 – Balance

Happy Tuesday! I have been social distancing for almost four weeks. As a freelancer / contracted employee, for over thirteen years, my work by nature has made me adaptable. For years I worked in the entertainment industry. My offices would be in business complexes, hotel conference rooms, hotel rooms, on studio lots and when I…

Tune Tuesday #54 – Shower the People

Happy Tuesday! I hope this day finds you healthy and in good spirits. I have been thinking about you and the overall community a lot lately. In the states, we are experiencing our first few days of social distancing. While people around the world have been experiencing it a few weeks to a full month…

Tune Tuesday #51 – By the Way, I Forgive You

“By the Way, I Forgive You” this line, from the song Every Time I Hear That Song by Brandi Carlile, echoed in my mind immediately after I first heard the song. There is something about her voice, coupled with the melody and the lyrics that sounds so familiar. In fact, when I first heard the song, I…

Tune Tuesday #50 – Yellow

It’s Tuesday! I have a song and a beautiful story to go with it. This song came into my life when I was in college. The band was popular at the time, but I didn’t listen to them or know who they were until a friend them introduced to me. She loved this band so…

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 Tuesday #48 – No One Needs To Know

Love is cleaning and clearing my vision and perception. When I open myself up to any meditation the wisdom will continue to shows, even when I am not seated in meditation. Today’s Tune is one of my favorite songs from when I was a teenager. When I heard the song back then, it sounded like she…

Tune Tuesday #45 – Fix My Eyes On You

Today’s tune is a song that is newer to me. It was by chance that I heard it on Spotify. I still don’t know how the song came through my playlist, but it grabbed me was the catchy beat. Since, the song has captivated me was the lyrics. This song is a Christian song, and…

Tune Tuesday #44 – Live for Today

I am currently re-reading “The Mastery of Love” by Don Miguel Ruiz. There are lot of concepts in the book that I now fully understand because they parallel my experiences or understandings. Like most self-help/ mindfulness books I’ve read, it calls for us to shed any dead weight, baggage or anything that no longer serves…

Tune Tuesday #42 – The Unmarried Female

Happy Tuesday! The US wedding market is a 55 billion dollar industry and a 300 billion dollars industry world wide. Companies make major profits from those who say I do and may even take delight when people walk down the aisle more than once. In college, I remember reading academic articles about the wedding industry…

Tune Tuesday #41 -Love Fearlessly

These days it feels like the world is little darker, colder and on edge. It feels as though we have forgotten that our neighbors are not strangers, but our brothers and sisters. It feels like we have forgotten that we are a web of stories, histories and experiences that at first glance appear to divide us. When…

Tune #40 – Oh!

“Nothing in my life has changed this year with the exception of [one thing].” My friend told me as we caught up last week. Even though I started the conversation, I deliberately did not share any or all my good news. I did not tell her I was the happiest I have ever been, that…

Tune #39 – Hope Will Lead Us On

“[This song] made me think of you and your journey,” brother Teddy texted me one afternoon in February.  He sent a link to the song, “Hope Will Lead Us On,” by the Barlow Girl. When I received that text that day, the timing was perfect. I never visited nor did I have a desire to visit Las Vegas prior…

Tune Tuesday #35 – Do your friendships raise you up?

“I’ve never told anyone this before.” “My friends and I never talk about these things.” I’ve been thinking a lot about friendships lately. I am someone people call on to seek council, support or guidance. Since I can remember I have always looked for like minded people and always choose to be surrounded by people I felt comfortable…
