RELAX INTO BEING

I was fortunate to make a new friend today! It happened as a result of accepting an invitation to visit a new town that I received yesterday…and the whole situation turned into such a beautiful gift, that I’m glad I accepted. I’m glad I was open. I’m glad I didn’t put too much on the - Read More -

FROM THE BLUR

This morning, social media reminded me that on this day, three years ago, I was in China. I still remember looking out of the window from my hotel room in Kunshan to see this disgusting pollution. I definitely did not want to get up or go outside. I don’t know if I have ever admitted - Read More -

I accepted that reality and went to sleep last night - Read More -

BREAKING DOWN WALLS

So often when we think of freedom, we think of the ability to do what we want when we want. This is one definition, but I find that internal traps that we create for ourselves can prevent us from getting to that point. As I think of freedom now, I think of: – Freedom from - Read More -

GRATITUDE

One of my favorite restaurants in LA is called Cafe Gratitude. As I sit in the downtown Arts District location, I’m filled with so much gratitude. The time that I have been able to spend with family and friends during this trip has been incredible!  And the kindness and love I’ve been shown is hard - Read More -

ANXIETY

As I started writing this post, I had the feeling of what anxiety means, but the words were alluding me. It is 5am in California, afterall ;) So I decided to do a quick search. I like Wikipedia’s version so much, I’m going to include an extended definition. It is long but worth the read: Anxiety is - Read More -
