Let’s Do This!

By |September 9th, 2018|

It seems to be working this new habit of posting on social media, of figuring out new systems or sending my heart out into the world! I have always said-Make the path by walking- and now, finally I am doing it for myself. I want to stop here for a moment and say thank you [...]

Promises to Self

By |August 23rd, 2018|

I am an introvert. Putting myself out there can feel scary. Fear of being judged? Sure. Is the same for you? And, yet it's time. I have said this before-I have come to accept that often I need to say thing out loud more than a few times before I am actually ready to make [...]

Get Out of the Way

By |August 19th, 2018|

I write what I need to hear. I post what I need to see. Quotes and images that appeal to the less courageous side of me. Ideas around transformation, letting yourself shine, not playing small, being real out in the world-aligned with my beliefs. Same thing with tattoos-images and words to remind me who I [...]

The Unexamined Basement

By |March 3rd, 2018|

I like to look at houses on Pinterest. I like to save pins that when all pulled together would be my ideal house. From the front door to the kitchen island to the garden shed out back-all of it! I like to go deep into what aspects of a house are most important to me. [...]

Too Full of the Truth

By |June 24th, 2017|

Today, I was hit hard by a quote that I read on Instagram. It was: "Darling, you feel heavy because you are too full of the truth. Open your mouth more. Let the truth exist somewhere other than inside your body." ~Della Hicks-Wilson Reading that felt like a blow to my entire body. I can [...]

Rising Above

By |March 7th, 2017|

I was at the park today, on a rainy and blustery morning walk. I happened upon a raft of ducks, each walking out of the water across the path and into the other pond. Except for one small duck. This duck kept trying to climb over a tree root over part of the path-while all [...]

Finding My Voice

By |February 15th, 2017|

One of the more difficult aspects of aligning my inner and outer worlds is finding my voice. Although, I don't just mean finding my voice, I also mean using it. The messages that I let in growing up as a girl in the Midwest were the ones about being pretty, about not rocking the boat, [...]

Exit Strategy

By |January 6th, 2017|

Today, I was hit hard by a quote that I read on Instagram. It was: "Darling, you feel heavy because you are too full of the truth. Open your mouth more. Let the truth exist somewhere other than inside your body." ~Della Hicks-Wilson Reading that felt like a blow to my entire body. I can [...]

Happy New Year

By |January 1st, 2017|

One year closes and another opens-new opportunities and new intentions. I feel that pull-to review and reflect and let go. To let one thing pass away and be done with it. I feel myself looking differently at this new year. I have set my intentions. I know what my word or theme of the year [...]

The stories we tell ourselves

By |December 1st, 2016|

I love stories. I love to sit and listen to people talk about their lives, share funny family pranks, tell me about their children, their happiness, their struggles. I love the laughter, connectedness and empathy that comes from opening up to one another. There is power in storytelling. Humans have been using storytelling for thousands [...]
