Ain’t That Some Shit

“You think can just entirely get rid of something about yourself?” I recently heard a someone say, “No. Whoever told you that is a liar!” “Well no,” I’d replied, “I just keep thinking that if I work hard enough it will like… go into remission or something.” Ha.

THINKING OUT LOUD

There is a place where my soul feels at rest. Where my heart beats in a gentle rhythm and my feet are steady. There is a time when I feel alive from my head to my toes. When I know I’m living my purpose. When I am my most authentic self. There is a place … Continue reading THINKING OUT LOUD

HOLDING ON

It’s Friday, the weekend is about to start and I’m wondering— what are you holding onto from your week? Someone make you upset at work on Monday morning and you’re still brooding over it?   Didn’t hear back from a friend and wondering what’s up?  Waiting desperately for that hot guy from yoga to ask you … Continue reading HOLDING ON

GIVE ME LOVE

So, the holidays are here again. Joy. People are gathering together in spirit and in plenty for the next few weeks and it’s lovely. It’s also a time of excess for most.

STORY OF MY LIFE

Plans. Timelines. Spreadsheets. Google Calendar. Ah, my happy place. It’s so lovely living in the boxes of my curated life. So clean. So tidy. So cozy, predictable, and safe. Bullshit. I call bullshit on that whole deal. You hear me?  Bull.Shit. You know what plans really are? A crapshoot. A coping mechanism. Our brain’s way … Continue reading STORY OF MY LIFE

GRAVITY

Funny thing happened last week, I got another check in the mail.  Oh, no, not for cash. No. From reality. Again.Thanks for that universe.There’s a yoga axiom, “Exercise and REST are essential for human health” that’s been screaming my name for a bit. In fact when I first saw it my initial response was “see, … Continue reading GRAVITY

HEY THERE, YOU’RE AN ALLSTAR

Have you ever observed a spinning top? It leans one way, and then another until it slows and topples. Notice that it never simply spins in the middle, centered, perfectly balanced in all directions.Let’s take a look at that little metaphor of life, shall we?How many things are you doing right now? How many jobs, … Continue reading HEY THERE, YOU’RE AN ALLSTAR
