Authentic self.

I’m learning to live more true to myself. This means letting go of judgement, of fear, of resentment, of criticism to the point of stagnation. In an ongoing healing journey, I am coming home to myself in the sense of living from a place of truth. My intention is to live, to fully live, withoutContinue reading “Authentic self.”

Gratitude first. 

I have a habit of recounting all the “have nots” and “should haves” and “if onlys.”  These leave me in a place of trapped emotion and regret. Instead, I seek to cultivate gratitude. Let’s take an example from writing. As I reflected upon the day I started to tell myself a story – “I didContinue reading “Gratitude first. “

Seeing the unseen. 

In seeking to see the unseen we seek hidden truths. Treasure that remains dormant until harvested and unearthed. It is through the practice of seeking to see the unseen that we come to a greater sense of awareness. Some truths can only be sensed or felt. Perhaps you enjoy the embrace of friend, or aContinue reading “Seeing the unseen. “

Fullness.

With a greater sense of awareness, I am learning to feel full. Fullness to me means completeness, happiness, and success. Success in this case is not measured by worldly accomplishments, gold stars, or publications, but rather by doing what I love. Doing what I love has taken great time, attention, and awareness to cultivate. It takes dedication,Continue reading “Fullness.”

Notice, in silence. 

I sit in silence to notice the conversations. Who is swimming. Who is at the beach. How well they are doing. How much improvement and growth is evident.  I stand in silence to notice sensations and actions. My body is aching for movement and stretch. I lunge and twist and arch my back. My handsContinue reading “Notice, in silence. “

Mantras to calm the storm.

What would a picture of dissatisfaction, frustration, or depression look like to you? My picture is stormy, hazy, and loud. Like a cartoon drawing of a tornado that blocks out clear thoughts and disrupts any sense of calm. The noise that I hear in my head is not so much a sound, as it isContinue reading “Mantras to calm the storm.”

Share your passion.

If you know me, or have met me, you likely know that I wear my emotions on my sleeve. I’ve recently been told that my 4 year old son does the same, for which I am proud. Being in tune to your emotions and feelings should be celebrated regardless of age, gender, status, etc. ThisContinue reading “Share your passion.”

Weightless-a choice.

Today the sky is clear. The weight of the world is not on my shoulders. Instead, I am prioritizing myself. My practice of writing. My practice of meditation. My practice of happiness. Yes – happiness is a practice, and perhaps more importantly, a choice. So is meditation. So is writing. I am listening to theContinue reading “Weightless-a choice.”

Weight of the world.

Got the weight of the world on your shoulders? You put it there. Don’t. Just let it go. Allow the energy to pass through you. Practice balance: the mindful distribution of energy. Inhale.Exhale.Repeat. Stop clinging onto blocked energy. Be with it, then let it go, for the sake of all of us. You are aContinue reading “Weight of the world.”
