Cultivating Intentionality, Self-Love + Solitude

Not only did 2020 dispel the viscous rumor that I don't have a green thumb and graciously taught me how to grow all things green, it unveiled the power behind cultivating intentionality, self-love and solitude. As a self-proclaimed serial monogamous, lover of love, flirt of all flirts and a true dating enthusiast, in 2018 I… Continue reading Cultivating Intentionality, Self-Love + Solitude

All Over the Place, Decluttering, Konmari

Home Sanctuary

During one of my daily check-ins with mom (a digression from our outburst of laughter and news updates from her on R. Kelly and Trump) we got on the topic of how many places I have lived. Not states or countries, but actual residences. The total was well over twenty, maybe 25ish! Last year my… Continue reading Home Sanctuary

I’M CERTIFIED

Being that I am all over the place I could not just sit my butt down and be in stillness during quarantine. Besides staying healthy and sane I had thangs to do, visions to manifest and goals to achieve. Little did I know that my trip to LA in January for a c-suite workshop would… Continue reading I’M CERTIFIED

Hygge: Fall-ing Into Peace

It's fall y'all! As the days become shorter and my time playing in the sun lessens, it feels like I tripped over my own feet and fell right into this season. I didn't see it (fall) coming! Did you? Fall is when I take a big international trip and bask in the slower pace of… Continue reading Hygge: Fall-ing Into Peace

Be Your Biggest Advocate

The death of Chadwick Boseman was a shocker. Unlike most people I didn't post a photo or voice my pain. I went inward, like I do with most tragedies. If you haven't noticed, I am always a week, two or three late in my responses. Don't take my silence to mean I am not grieving or… Continue reading Be Your Biggest Advocate

Therapy – Get You Some!

Therapy entered into my life as a child of divorce. It was always an option for me. Ultimately, obtaining a Masters of Social Work was my way of contributing to the world. My skills have helped others, but equally I benefited from self-work with my therapist. I am able to take the calls from so… Continue reading Therapy – Get You Some!

The Healing Process

Trauma and Loss was about healing. The blog stats were off the charts, some who read were touched, empowered and inspired. Others were concerned, speechless and heartbroken.  The day after the post I opened Lion's Roar (my Buddhist magazine) to an article titled, " The Healing Power of the Truth by Eve Ensler.  Y'all.....she was… Continue reading The Healing Process

Trauma and Loss

We close shut our eyes and pretend the impact of past experiences are closed chapters, yet residual pain hibernates. Triggers are often little whispers of our suffering. The long-term impact of trauma on our physical being, in most cases, we silence. In an effort to find my way through the suffering I exposed life’s clutter… Continue reading Trauma and Loss

Intentionality & Music Therapy

 The rules, I follow; but on my terms. Self-isolation and social-distancing for me requires some intentionality. Intentionality being my 2020 theme, if you haven't already figured that out. Knowing that loneliness at times is my closest acquaintance required some intentional moves on my part. Fortunately, having learned how to embrace and dance with him (loneliness)… Continue reading Intentionality & Music Therapy

Spring Equinox – Birthday Detox 2020

The spring equinox is the kick off to my favorite time of year, not just because it is the launch of a month long birthday celebration, but because it is my reset season. For the past 3-4 years I have had to manage a two week conference during my birthday/ spring equinox, which pushed my… Continue reading Spring Equinox – Birthday Detox 2020
