just do it

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 -

I believe there is no work more important than helping others. My passion for helping children in need is due in large part to the fact that they are unable to help themselves. (Plus I simply love children!) They are so often the victims of poor parental decisions. Children fight a very difficult battle, and - Read More -

This is a story about how I accidentally (on purpose) met the incomparable (wonderful and beautiful) Oprah Winfrey. (!!!!) Please note: I’m writing this at 2am, so thank you for your kindness and understanding as you read my excited thoughts ;) First, I will just say that I do not think there is any such - Read More -

hold your breath
January 27, 2015


  Sometimes when I’m intensely focused on something — or even during a massage! — I will suddenly realize that I’m holding my breath. This does not happen to the point of being unable to breathe, but just enough to make me aware that I’m not relaxed. In those moments of realization, I remind myself - Read More -

I’m irritable when I’m tired. I’m impatient when I’m hungry. Loud noises, bad smells, and big crowds can wear me down. But I made it through loud holiday celebrations, crowded airports, and a kind lady sitting next to me on a plane that continued to pass gas throughout the flight. Haha! (True story.)  Though I’m - Read More -

Many weeks ago, a woman [that I didn't know] approached me in a parking garage and said, “I’m trying to get to your level.” I laughed her comment off with a smile and kept walking. But she continued, following me, and said, “I know it wasn’t easy.” We were walking together now towards the steps - Read More -

After a fun, full day in San Francisco, I’m up at 2am on a Saturday thinking about change. While it is true that things change, I’m inspired to say that we experience pain because we fail to realize that our expectations change. We anticipate future outcomes (i.e. illusions) based on our expectations. These desired future outcomes are simply what we - Read More -

BUDDHA was not a BUDDHIST. JESUS was not a CHRISTIAN. MUHAMMAD was not a MUSLIM. THEY were TEACHERS who taught LOVE. LOVE was their RELIGION. One of my favorite quotes is by BASHO who said, “Do not follow in the footsteps of the wise. Seek what they sought.” But there is comfort in numbers. It seems - Read More -
