Wisdom Wednesday #88 – Grieve

Claire Wineland has popped up in my mind from time to time since she died. I realized last week why I felt and still feel sad about her passing. She was so close to knowing what life would be like with new lungs. She was so close to know what it feels like to breathe…

Wisdom Wednesday #87 – Embrace Life

I have felt sadness lately. On Monday one of my girlfriends messaged me to let me know that a woman that we both follow via social media died. As soon as I read her message I felt the sudden punch of shock. I was first introduced to this women through her father, John Wineland, who…

Wisdom Wednesday #86 – What Does Love Look Like?

It’s Wednesday, February 28th and the last day of my Love and Attachment Meditation, which was exclusive to Instagram. I am both excited and a little sad that this is the end of this meditation series. When I set out to meditate daily on Love and Attachment, I was unsure. Could I meditate on this…

Wisdom #75 – An Honest Thank You Letter

It’s…not Wednesday, but this wisdom is too good to wait until Wednesday to be shared. The deeper I get into my mindfulness practice the harder it is for me to be around inauthenticity. The further I go with speaking my truth, the hard it is for me to be quiet and untruthful. I never lied,…

Wisdom Wednesday # 67 – A Father’s Wish

Father’s Day was this weekend. When mothers day or fathers day or holidays in relation to family come up, I feel the need to tread lightly. Not everyone has grown up in a loving home or to loving parents or guardians.  I do not want to exclude anyone and I sometimes do not write during these events. Visions of absent…

Wisdom Wednesday #66 – This Messy Life

After finding my voice over two years ago, I began a journey of vulnerability to share parts of my true self that I had no idea I had hidden. This blog came from that goal to be vulnerable. One of my goals, since I was a girl, is to be a speaker. Speakers were woven into my high school…
