THE JOURNEY TO MY FIRST BOOK

When I started this blog in February 2013, I felt called to write a book but I didn’t know where to start. I did not want to be a writer who did not write, so I used the blog as a way of becoming comfortable getting my writing out into the world. With my background - Read More -

LIFE IN THE SKY

A psychic (that I met in a mall) once told me that I would travel a lot. I nodded when she said it, but I had no idea I’d be living in the sky haha Though the travel gets hectic and tiring, I can say that it has given me a different perspective. I see the - Read More -

VIRTUE

While reading Lao-tzu on this beautiful morning in Chicago, two passages about virtue (goodness) caught my eye and begged to be shared ;) PRACTICING VIRTUE To practice virtue is to selflessly offer assistance to others, giving without limitation one’s time, abilities, and possessions in service, whenever and wherever needed, without prejudice concerning the identity of those - Read More -

NONE OF THE ABOVE

Recently, I had a conversation with a loved one about religion. We talked a bit about Christianity, Taoism, and Zen…I expressed respect for one’s right to chose their own beliefs. I think I said something like love is my religion (haha). As a Christian, she expressed a desire to want me (and other loved ones) - Read More -

DO WHAT YOU FEAR

While I was in Germany, I had the incredible opportunity to speak with a group of middle and high school aged students at my friend’s school. We spoke of many different things and they asked me many important questions like, “Do you have a boyfriend?” and “What kind of car do you drive?” and “Are - Read More -

NO QUESTIONS

Today I had one of the best laughs ever  with my hair stylist/life coach/friend/big-sister V :) Though I could never adequately describe the moment in words, I felt that it was such a beautiful moment that it needed to be captured on the site… It all started with me describing the challenges I faced with finding - Read More -

15 HOURS

13 hours into my 15 hour flight to Hong Kong, my stomach started hurting. I knew I shouldn’t have eaten the airplane dinner with the questionable sauce! I guzzled Sprite and mint Mentos and tried to watch a movie. Gravity started making me dizzy so I changed to Cloudy With Chance of Meatballs 2. (15 hours is a - Read More -

LIVE YOUR TRUTH

This topic has been bouncing around my mind for a few days, so I am going to put off distractions (i.e. all forms of writing resistance haha) to try to share these ideas :) The thought of “living your truth” came about as I was commenting on the disappointing (long lasting) trend in media that - Read More -

HUMILITY AND FREEDOM

This morning I read a remarkable perspective of how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. ended the terror of living as a black person in the United States. The article discusses how he taught the black community to face their worst fears and, as a community, accept abuse with a non-violent reaction. In the ways of Gandhi, Dr. King - Read More -

CRAZY TALK

Lately I’ve been exploring the concept of “oneness” and what it means. I considered that perhaps we are all different manifestations of the same Spirit having a complete human experience in different bodily forms (at the same time). To expand on that…yesterday, I had an emotion breakdown//breakthrough when I was driving around (a bit lost, - Read More -
