habits & the inevitable ruts we dig

As I sat down on the porch this morning to read, I stumbled upon the quote by Miguel De Unamuno, “To fall into a habit is to begin to cease to be.” I wrestled with this statement for the next hour. Sure, some habits are great. But more often than not, when asked about ourContinue reading “habits & the inevitable ruts we dig”

life: your movie reel

Your mind creates the world you live in. Quiet literally, you are the director, star actor, supporting roles and extras for you own personal movie. And you get to choose: What reality do you wish to create? What perspective will you take? Sometimes it is hard to see the silver lining. Life catches us in negativity,Continue reading “life: your movie reel”

i don’t know

Thinking back on my middle school years still, makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. It is such a time of change and transformation. (Why don’t they have a movie that explained you’re supposed to be awkward then, that plays in health class?) As my peers and I geared up, from leaving the “elementary nest” to transition into ourContinue reading “i don’t know”

my morning ritual

You might say I am a dreamer. Meaning, I live most often in my mind as opposed to in my feet. I am constantly thinking, creating and dreaming up ideas about life/ the future- which I feel is great- for me. But sometimes, it can be unsettling taking me out of the present moment. YouContinue reading “my morning ritual”

impermanence

In order to grow, you have got to let go. Nothing is ever permanent. The concept of impermanence is at the same time both comforting and frightening. Comforting in the sense, that painful life circumstances will pass. Frightening in the sense that we will, at some point, have to let go of all of thisContinue reading “impermanence”

mindfulness

I’ve been thinking, talking, and writing a lot about “being present” as it is, more than ever, a reoccurring theme in my life. Fall is this natural time of “airiness” with the wind swirling and leaves falling we feel a sense of movement. Any time we experience movement, it has the ability to uproot us,Continue reading “mindfulness”

trust

If you find yourself continually getting frustrated in the search for what’s next, you are not alone. Occasionally the vision is delicately placed in plain site for us to see and other times it’s hidden deep within. In the later scenario, the search can begin to feel pointless and full of dead ends, making usContinue reading “trust”

SuperMoon in taurus

Tomorrow marks our next Full Moon, this time supersized to the visual eye from the earth, hence the name SUPERMOON. During this coming week, you may feel a pull to the deep-rooted questions around ‘who you truly are’. These inquiries are awfully tricky because our first reaction typically is to define ourselves by our jobsContinue reading “SuperMoon in taurus”

“don’t be selfish”

As a child, I was concerned about acting “selfish”. My parents, who are phenomenal loving parents, knew nothing better than to scold me for acting self-centered at times. I admit, there were days when I didn’t quite think of others. Shit, we all have our days… but this didn’t mean that I didn’t care forContinue reading ““don’t be selfish””

journey to love

Vacation has come. For me, this makes for a great time to sit down, relax, and deepen my understanding of myself. In my arsenal, I held: Eckart Toles’: A New Earth, Pam Grouts’: E^2, and an India inspired coloring book. As I read through A New Earth, I came across a page that made somethingContinue reading “journey to love”
