Mindful Monday #148 – Uncover Your Blessings

Life is no joke. For all it’s beauty there is ugliness. The ugly is often created by us or toward us. How we carry ourselves in our hardest moments speaks volumes to our character.  My heart stopped on Friday. It felt like the wind was knocked out of me. I was blind sided and I felt…

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 #33 – Wake Me Up

I’ve been thinking about darkness a lot lately. We fear the dark when we are kids because we imagine that there are monsters in our closets or under our beds. As adults we out grow those childhood fears and illusions. Last year was a tough year each step of the way. Going into the year I…

Mindful Monday #99 – Not Afraid

Working on location has been so insightful and it is one of the best things that I didn’t know I needed. I did not want to work on location for three years because I knew it would be more demanding. I was right. Work has been more demanding then I anticipated. However, so much has…

Searching for Christmas

Christmas is almost here. I loved this season ever since I was young. Everyone is friendlier, warmer and more giving. I have always wished that the essence of the season would live in the hearts of everyone throughout the year. This year the season feels different. I’m finding it hard to find Christmas in my heart because all I find is sadness. While…

Tune Tuesday #15 – The Great Unknown

It’s Tuesday! For this new personal year, I decided to start a new tradition. I set two intentions, which I have never done. Today I will take another step toward those intentions and make a vision board for my personal year. Up to now, I have only made vision boards for my goals that I…

Mindful Monday #78 – Go Towards Your Edge

Happy Monday! Life always provides what you need when you need it and apparently solitude is what I really need because it’s where I find myself. I’ve been working on a feature for over a month, which I am enjoying, but it’s providing a lot of solitude. I haven’t been making a lot of plans…

Mindful Monday #69 – Surrender the Day

Hello, today is a great day! The struggle has passed or at least I’ve broken through it. I had a feeling I would be here, when I came to understand my struggle last week. On Friday I wrote about how I realized that surrendering once isn’t enough, instead you have to surrender each day. I…

My Aching Heart

Apparently this year is the year where I write blog posts that scare me. Of the handful of blog post that I have hesitated to both write and post this year, this one has caused me to hold my breath because I am terrified of what I will uncover. I don’t know where to start?…

Double Down

It is hard to live in the unknown, but everything in life is unknown. Life is created moment by moment and some moments we can and cannot predict. I’m currently living in a moment that I predicted a few weeks ago, but never imagined a few months ago. My current situation in life will work…

White Blank Page

I’ve been feeling antsy lately like there is something more I could be doing, but I don’t know what that is? I haven’t figured out what prompted this feeling and where it is guiding me. January was All Things New: new job, new apartment, new friends, new community involvement and a new leadership role. February…

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…
