Okay, folks, the question on the table is: What if I choose my life, exactly as it is in this moment? Will I cease to reach for my dreams? Will I become lazy? Will I be settling for a mediocre, mind-numbing, sad, sad life? What if I choose me, exactly as I am? Choose my… Continue reading I Choose You: a path to acceptance
Well hello there beautiful, I really love hanging out with you. There is just so much light beaming out from every pore of your being. More than you can begin to imagine. Don’t worry about it though. I wouldn’t even think about it if I were you. It’s just the way it is. And… Continue reading Monday Love
And for those of you who need evidence: “For decades, science popularizers have said humans are made of stardust, and now, a new survey of 150,000 stars shows just how true the old cliché is: Humans and their galaxy have about 97 percent of the same kind of atoms, and the elements of life appear to… Continue reading Repeat after me: I Rock.
Just a friendly reminder to stop and smell the roses. Literally. Stop. Smell those roses next time you walk by some. Yesterday I stopped and lay in the shade of this palm tree. It wasn’t on my schedule of things to get done — I was driving by and inspiration hit. Yes, that’s inspiration. How… Continue reading A Mindful Pause for Pleasure
Hello my sweetest one, Who is here today? Mmmm, quiet, underneath all you do, the one who just wants to get it right (cause then everything will be ok). A part you are long familiar with.

It doesn’t need to make sense. It probably won’t make sense. Lean into your hearts desire. Even if all you can muster… Continue reading Monday Love
Hey love, Wherever you are is fine. Holding it all together is fine. Holding it all in. Is fine. If it’s where you’re at right now.

Today is five of five in my exploration of mindful parenting. What keeps coming back to me is how I do anything is how I do everything. How I live my life is directly connected to how I parent. Nothing is separate. It’s not me over here and my kids over there. It includes… Continue reading Mindful Parenting: Divorce, Baby Daddy and Me.
Good Morning Beauty, I hear you. You just want to sleep a little longer. It’s like that sometimes. Nothing wrong with that. Nothing wrong with you. What if you were to start your day with nothing to fix. No veiled layer of judgement telling you how you should be. More rested, less grumpy, less achy,… Continue reading Monday Love
Sixteen seconds of pleasure. That’s what I’m practicing for the next month. First thing when I wake up. No, not that kind of pleasure. Though it could be. Today was day two, and something amazing happened already. And yes, it’s parenting-related. Stay with me for a moment. Mindfulness does not ask that you never… Continue reading Tuning Out and Plugging In. Mindfully. — connecting with our kids, part 2 —
