The woman in his head..

One day I heard a voice, a man standing at the foot of my bed. As tears ran down his face he pleaded for help. He is drowning. I looked at him, knowing that no one else could see him. He was very much alive, yet his capacity to render…

A voice of stature.

The age of relevance has changed the way society views intelligence. Influence no longer exists within the realms of integrity, yet that of noise louder than common sense can think. As a whole, much of the populous wonder what happened to the world they once knew. Unrecognizable and seemingly unfair,…

From a place I’d never dreamt..

Once there was a girl who lived and loved inside a fairy tale. She resided in this world of make believe and fables until the age of adulthood appeared. As for many of us, she took to her new reality willingly, yet with hesitation. You see, she knew of a…

Once there was..

Once there was a girl who knew of her strengths and hid behind her weakness. She knew how the tides were changed by the moon and that others didn’t see it’s brilliance. One day she began to throw stones at the ones who shunned her passion for the moon. She…

My Life with Ingrid.

There has never been a day that I would change as a mom of a special needs daughter. Not. One. Day. But (I know you’re thinking there shouldn’t be a BUT), when I look into her face and she’s visibly upset it hurts my heart. Often times there are things…

Dare to Dream

She was vibrant, yet complacent. She was charismatic and confused. She fought demons in her sleep and she chased angels among the clouds each dawn. Her fairy tale isn’t the same as stories she heard in childhood, yet she believed in a life no one else could imagine. Her reality…

The rock that holds you steady.

It’s not often I speak about my personal relationships on social media, other than a random photo here and there. But I wanted to share something with you that reminded me of why I do what I do, as well as the importance of a loving, understanding relationship. As you…

Overthinking Antidote

Through the layers of life we throw ourselves into a whirlwind, mostly unprepared, and begin to see things as a threat instead of a lesson. Jumping from peaceful demeanor to fight or flight response, we train our minds to see life as hazardous instead of joyous. But why? Do you…

Tell them who you are.

When I heard this for the first time, immediately, I said No. I am not ready for that. Relentlessly, they kept saying the same thing. Knowing the connection and their love for me, I realized there was something I needed to face in this vulnerability. Do you follow the truth…

The Embodiment of Self.

I look back on the time that has passed and wonder where I went wrong. Why had I allowed myself to fall to the trap of not keeping with what lights up my soul. If I know what makes me feel amazing and full of life, why wouldn’t I embrace…

When you think twice..

Often I wonder what would’ve happened if I had quit before I knew what I could accomplish. I was a beginner, a woman with major ambition and a drive that fizzled out before the good stuff really got good. I thought twice. I second guessed everything. I was that person,…

Too stubborn to know.

You’ve heard the terms “too stubborn for her own good”, “too stubborn to see what’s right in-front of you”. Comments such as these can be perceived in a multitude of ways. How you choose to hear them are up to you. In business, being stubborn or hard-headed can be a…

Running in circles

When the overwhelm sets in and I begin to feel like I’ve been slamming my head, figuratively speaking, of course, I can’t help but feel like it isn’t supposed to be this hard. Do you have these days too? Of course you do. You’re human. I, also, know the other…

Grace & Nobility

I began living a life I had always dreamt of after I woke up one day and thought “is this it?” There was a calling, an inner voice, saying that I was meant to do great things, yet I was too scared to break the ice into a new reality.…

If you want a better result, try this!

There is never a better way to depict your progress more effectively than how you deal with challenge. When involved in a situation that didn’t provide a desired outcome, we must ask ourselves why. What could I have done differently to change the outcome? How could I have handled myself…

Protect Your Energy!

We’ve all experienced a time when we allow our walls to become shallow for the purpose of “allowing” others in. Yet what most don’t realize is how draining that can be to our energetic vibration. You may feel something a bit different, something may seem a little off, yet you…

One nation: We Stand Divided.

In a waking moment, your eyes see a world different than your last blink. In a waking moment, your worst nightmares have come to life. A country build on resilience, patriotism and brilliance has plunged itself into the deepest depths of despair. A country deemed a nation of promise, hope…

Do you believe in fairytales?

She dreamt of him each night. She smelled the scent of his cologne. She knew every golden fleck in his eyes. She felt his hand on her arm. She could feel his passionate intensity as he walked toward her. His glance was pure and sweet. She remembered his touch. She…

Do you go within?

Its said that when you go within, you begin to create the change you seek.  Do you believe that to be true?  Do you believe that you have the power to change your reality? I do because I’ve seen it!  I’ve felt a change within so intensely that it changed…

A girl. A city. In love.

She wrote stories of a time she hadn’t lived. She longed for sunshine days filled with the sweet smell of floral markets and pleasant smiles. She remembered the amber pendants hanging from iron columns. She felt her soul being called backwards; to a time and place that no longer existed.…

My biggest growing experience.

You’re not growing if you refuse to let go. You’re not growing if you choose to stay safe. You’re not growing if you don’t accept change. As I was meditating today, I felt an urge to write. I wrote without thinking, without hesitation. “I have seen amazing detail in your…

When among the stars..

When you look at the night sky, what do you feel? Do you see an essence of yourself floating off in wanderlust? You feel your soul set free as you glide, at peace and remarkably graceful. A tattered ribbon of who you once were gently rests upon the ground where…

Generation: Heal

As I sit at my desk, staring out into the blue sky, I attempt to recall the exact moment when I realized that hurt had become my shield.  I wore it like a crest; majestic and proud.  I claimed that all circumstances were what they were due to the pain…

Repurpose in Unexpected Places

As a bit of a hobby, I enjoy giving new life to old furnishings. Scaling off the old, drenching them in beautiful glory. I began to wonder why we don’t appreciate the repurposed phases of our lives as we do objects. For every closed door brings new opportunity. For every…

When you smile..

Did you know that when you smile the entire world leaps to catch a glimpse? To capture the sight of such inexpiable beauty – unable to be justified to the human eyes. Such grace, such magnificence, such transparency of earthly elegance. Do you see it?  Do you feel it? Feel…

Mom.

Its said that every mom and every child are unique. Special characteristics, personalities, quirks and amazing attributes that all equal to an unexplainable amount of love for another being. This Mother’s day I look at my two small kids in awe. I think of our trials and triumphs, the day…

When darkness rises.

The road may seem dark, it may seem off center, yet only you can navigate past the confusion to the other side. Darkness is part of each of us.  How you hold it depends on you.  You may find that it hurts to let it go, while others bury theirs…

Flower Moon.

During an intense time in her life, she rose to see herself as a flower blooming for the first time.  She stood in the field surrounded by openness and promise.  Not a moment too soon, as she inhaled the sweet scent of wildflowers, she was filled with strength in a…

You Already Are All That You Desire.

These are the words that came to me in a deep state of meditation.  I sat there in silence, looking at myself staring back at me when these words were spoken. “You already are all that you desire”. I shivered.  I sobbed.  I realized that all that makes me unique…
