The other night I found myself in my mother’s craft room, attempting to be creative. I am bad at art, has been one of my go-to phrases since the fourth grade. I will always remember her; the art teacher from hell. She told me I was bad at art and I believed it ever since. My […]Read more "You are not a jar"
Milkshakes make me believe in magic. And green milkshakes are my new obsession. Delectable, creamy, easy, & packed with nutrition, I wouldn’t want to start my day any other way. Breakfast never tasted so good. During the *sometimes crazy* Holiday Season, don’t forget to take care of yourself. Here are a […]Read more "Rainbow Chard Milkshake"
Today, between bites of scrumptious food, may we look around and allow our hearts to be filled with nothing but love. May we recognize how truly blessed we are. May we thank every individual and situation that has ever greeted us on our walk through life. No matter the interaction, good or bad, each relationship and […]Read more "Thank You"
Lake Pleasant, AZ: The air was still and the sky ominous. Each wash filled with an array of rocks, so pretty that I walked with my head down for hours. I kept wondering how the hell so many beautiful rainbow colored chunks of earth ended up in one place at one time. We found sun bleached bones […]Read more "Valley of the Sun"
TAOS, NM: filled me with longing, excited my every cell, and animated my speech to sometimes annoyingly loud tones. There was a sort of magical calm in the air, like good things have happened there to good people, that haven’t always had good things happen to them. The kind of place that makes you believe […]Read more "Land of Enchantment"
There should be no rush in this beautiful, magical, sometimes deeply upsetting & wildly chaotic thing we call life. Remember your breath & the power that you have. Take your time, especially when you feel that time is a limited resource. Slowing down creates space, it enhances your creativity, & allows you to listen to your […]Read more "Take all the time you need"
Darling, Move the way love makes you move. Sashaying, skipping, frolicking, spinning, arms in the air, hair flying wildly about. Move into everything you possibly can with the joy of love propelling you forward with every step. Move into uncomfortable, new things with intrigue. When you move the way fear makes you move you […]Read more "The way love makes you move"
And that’s the funny thing about love. We experience only as much as we think we deserve. We experience only as much as we are willing to give. And we feel only as much as we dare to feel. Love exists in all things big and small. Love doesn’t see boundaries, doesn’t fit into a […]Read more "That’s the thing about love"
It has been far too long again. Hello!! Today, I broke down crying in my car. There I was. In the freakin’Walmart parking lot: red-faced, teary-eyed, yoga-pants-on, didn’t-even-brush-my-hair, crazy woman, having a sob fest. I pulled myself together before the song on the radio ended. And then I continued on with my day. My soul-searching […]Read more "Sob Fest"
Hello lovelies, I hope the weekend left you starry-eyed, excited, intrigued, or a little less sleep deprived at least. In the spirit of soul searching, my weekend was a combination of volunteering, (obligatory study for the GRE), a full moon drum circle, and an amazing day trip to Flagstaff to climb Mt. Humphreys (for one hell […]Read more "I hope I never stay the same"
