STAY PRESENT

Sometimes I catch myself getting future focused. Writing, editing, and publishing a book means I have a to-do list that never seems to end. I’m driven to create and share. And it requires that I think ahead a lot. However, a friend reminded me to “stay present ;)” in a note recently and it really - Read More -

OPTIONS

The world is vast. Our perception is so often limited. Having options is a wonderful thing, but sometimes it can be overwhelming. Should I stay or go? Should I invest in this or that? Will this decision result in a loss or gain? If we first take a breath and then take a step back, - 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 -

IMPORTANT WORK

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 -

A SERIES OF FORTUNATE EVENTS

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 -

TAKE A BREATH

  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 -

SELF BLAME

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 -

CONSOLATIONS

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 -
