Take all the time you need

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 […]

I hope I never stay the same

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 […]

Then the real work begins…

Wow! It has been a LONG time again.  How did that happen? I hope this post finds you well, healthy, and happy.  Today is going to be a bit heavy but I promise light-hearted running inspiration & green smoothie talk will be back soon. Since my leap of faith post and my moving away from San […]

Keep moving forward

The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very rough, mean place.  No matter how tough you think you are,  it will always bring you to your knees and keep you there permanently, if you let it. You or nobody ain’t never gunna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard […]

Repeat after me…

I finally saw The Help a few days ago and absolutely loved this scene. I think everyone could tell themselves and others that they are smart, beautiful, worthy, strong, kind, witty, and/or totally freakin awesome more often! I spent months years of my life worrying about what I wasn’t and putting myself down. We really […]

Inspired by inspiring others

HELLO! How’s it going? I got the most amazing text message from my Mom the other day…. After reading this I smiled, cried a little (on the inside) and stopped to appreciate the fact that my dedication to living a healthy life, actually has the ability to inspire someone else. This “healthy life” isn’t something […]
