Thanks, Giving, Love

To say I feel loved today, it just doesn't cut it. Do you ever wake up and just feel so sure, so reassured, and steady that you just breathe and enjoy it? At this time in my life when things are ever-changing and busy, these moments of clarity are so few and far between that… Continue reading Thanks, Giving, Love

Write It Out Challenge Day #4

Prompt: If I were practicing deep self love, I would start....and I would stop.... I want to start by saying, I truly believe self-love is the beginning of all happiness. Why we don't teach our children this in elementary school, is beyond me. I'm not perfect, but I have a lot of self-care already build… Continue reading Write It Out Challenge Day #4

Day #17, A Gift for You

I don't know about you, but I have been pinching pennies to make this holiday meaningful. I'm making most of our gifts this year, but still trying to make them fun and festive. I've actually been bringing my lunch to work to make up for the extra spending. We all sacrifice a little this time… Continue reading Day #17, A Gift for You

Day #13, What is Your Light?

This summer I spent 3 nights in the woods of Pennsylvania on a yoga retreat with a unique and intimate group of women. We went through the Desire Map process together, and defined our Core Desired Feelings. One that I hadn’t anticipated, was to feel “Like A Loving Spirit.” What followed that experience surprised me.… Continue reading Day #13, What is Your Light?

Day #9, Traditions

Good morning, lovely people! It's Saturday, a sleepy, cold Saturday, and a perfect day to look for the light in our lives. On Christmas Eve each year, my mother gathered us around the tree after dinner. The few presents that preceded Santa were wrapped with precision, and adorned in pretty bows. Three identical packages always… Continue reading Day #9, Traditions

Weird, Not Weird.

My friend and fellow yogi, Alyssa, has a phrase she uses to describe the endless coincidences and connections that surround her life. She says things are “weird, not weird.” You know when people say, “sorry, not sorry?” They’re acknowledging that socially it’s probably the right thing to be “sorry” and yet they are not.

Mind, Body & Spirit: A journey of self-love

Being a woman is hard. Being alive is hard. I can't speak to what it is like to be a man, or what it is like to be dead, but these two things I know to be true. 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

The Power of Your Pen

Do you consider yourself a writer? I wish that more people did. Being a writer doesn't mean you want to be published, or even that you want to share your words. Writing and journaling has been an outlet for self-expression and documenting milestones for a long time. I bet most of your grandmothers, and even… Continue reading The Power of Your Pen

Darkness Settles

Even on a journey that seems crystal clear, we can easily become derailed. The last 4 months have been one of the longest stints of emotional clarity I've had in a long time. My purpose and focus, my motivation and rhythm, have been clear and attainable. Yoga has been a guiding light during this process,… Continue reading Darkness Settles

Full of Life

After I post on my blog, or upload something new to Instagram, I always click through the posts with the same hashtags I used. At first, I think I did this to get more attention on social media. Now, I do it for inspiration. To see what other creative spirits are putting out into the… Continue reading Full of Life
