THE RUB

It’s how I’ve been able to see the other side of the struggle, and love them.

THE SOUND OF SILENCE

I want to talk to you about this time I felt stuck. Really stuck. Really down. Really not myself. Depressed. I would actually classify this thing that happened, that I’m coming out of, as depressed. And that is scary as fuck. I have lots of reasons why it might have happened. Significant health issues, insomnia, … Continue reading THE SOUND OF SILENCE

Dark Side Of The Moon

They’re the kind that bind my hands and blind my eyes and restrain my feet, and keep me from the light. The kind that make me feel powerLESS. The kind that leave me gasping for air at the bottom of the pool.

GAS PEDAL

Wow. So January is off to kickass, rockin’ good start so far. But um, holy time commitments batman; according to my calendar, I have about 30 free minutes in the month of January, 15 in February, and potentially five, give or take a phone call, in March.

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. Excess spending, excess food, excess emotions, and excess alcohol consumption (generally to deal with said emotions). Tis’ the season of overdoing it, or … Continue reading GIVE ME LOVE

(SHE’S GOING) THE DISTANCE

I know I’m starting to sound like a broken record here, but for real people, when you know what you want, and you let the universe know- IT DELIVERS. Remember those miracles I mentioned last month? And how once I was very clear about what I wanted the universe just made it rain? Yep. So … Continue reading (SHE’S GOING) THE DISTANCE

GUTS OVER FEAR

So, I have  confession to make. Gulp. I’m not actually always that good at letting shit go. Like, um, I am. . . but . . . I’m also . . . not. I’m good at letting SOME things go. I’m good at not letting MOST things bother me. I can release hurt, anger, pain, … Continue reading GUTS OVER FEAR

JUMP

Yesterday was a trip. Literally. I had my first day at a new part time job (yes, another one. . . ), about 30 miles away from my house, back in the community from “before.” Before, as in prior to when I made all this progress. Before, in my previous existence, when I was unhappily married and taught … Continue reading JUMP

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
