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 we think nothing of such…

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 wonder if this trait has…

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 of who you are, who…

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, and if we’re being totally…

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 didn’t know his name. They…

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 my world. In the not…

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. Some called her an old…

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 dreams – so much so…

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 you sat. You have been…

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 I felt in my soul.…

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 sad ending brings about realigned…

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 it to the depths of…

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 way she had never felt…

Embracing change.

Human nature has taught us many things, yet most of them are wrong.  We grow up in a world that shapes us to believe who we are told we are. Only when we realize we are who we decide to be, is when our internal world really takes shape. If you’re like me, I had to…

Look Within.

Here’s a story that most people don’t know.  I tell it now, not because I feel anyone needs to know the happenings of my relationships, yet to understand how powerful we are as humans. We hold the power to change our entire reality; our entire world. A few short years ago, I felt lost.  Completely lost within…
