My theory is, the more yourself you are, the more you love yourself, the more the universe will love you, too. As a child, I was taught that God, our creator, would love me no matter what. I was taught that as a fact, but it didn’t feel like much. I didn’t know I needed … Continue reading Seeking Serendipity
My meditation practice, like many aspects of my life, is a work in progress. I’m not as consistent as I would like to be, but still my practice has come a long way. When I started meditating just a few years ago, I overthought how I would sit and what I would think about. I … Continue reading Music to Meditate
I want to empower you with tools for your own journey of self-discovery, acceptance, and love. I’m going to call these sections “Warrior Wednesdays,” because being a Warrior is all about knowing, trusting, and accepting yourself in every way. By knowing yourself, you can live authentically even when the world pushes you in unexpected ways. … Continue reading Warrior Wednesday: The Desire Map
I’m no superwoman, but sometimes I’m pretty impressed with how much I can get done all by myself. I’ve always been of the mindset that I can handle anything that comes at me. If I don’t know how, I’ll figure it out. Haven’t you heard of Google? I work hard, and I like to joke … Continue reading Asking for (and accepting) Help

In childhood, things seemed much simpler, but as we grow we are exposed to the realities and … Continue reading Mind, Body & Spirit: A journey of self-love
Going through The Desire Map process was therapeutic, and really tied together a lot of pieces for me. Last Fall I participated in Seth Godin's altMBA program, where we pushed ourselves and our peers to dive deep and find our "why." We analyzed our actions and our goals, and dreamed about what we could … Continue reading Filling in the Circle
Last night I left work and journeyed to my very first yoga retreat. 7 women and our yogi guide, Alyssa, are staying in a cabin in a nearby state park, spending 4 days practicing, meditating, eating well and connecting in new and deeper ways to ourselves and to each other. One of the biggest challenges … Continue reading Unplugged
Aaron and I have both moved a lot, and lived up and down the east coast in various kinds of homes. Our families are spread around the country, from Texas to Maine, and several places in between. The concept of "home" has changed for both of us over the years, something I was reminded of … Continue reading Home, sweet home.
Happy Monday! I've been killing my goals so far this month. I've done yoga every day but one, but even when I missed I got right back on my mat the next day and started again. No excuses. I've written every day this month, with a grand total of 15 consecutive days of writing. When … Continue reading Journaling and Dream Boarding, Oh My!
