EVERYTHING THAT I EXPECTED, NOTHING THAT I EXPECTED

When I traveled to Thailand, I had expected to stay at the Lamai Muay Thai Camp and train daily. I did that. I expected the become physically stronger. I did. And I expected to meet good people. Another check mark. On the basic levels, my month-long stay in Thailand went exactly as I expected. But as I - Read More -

FEELING OVERWHELMED

I feel like every stage of writing my latest book has been overwhelming. I’m even taking a break to write this post because I feel overwhelmed haha I don’t know that what I’m about to write will help with the feeling, but I hope to look back on this post one day and laugh about - Read More -

ABOUT WRITING AND ART

I fell into writing. I never thought that I would be a writer full time! My college degrees are in Engineering and Business, and I figured that I’d find some way to parlay that into a long career in Business, Law, or something else that would allow me to take over the world…you know, the - Read More -

COMPLETION

The journey to complete my third book, Seven Lives, has been both thrilling and exhausting! I set a personal goal for myself, sometime in January, that I wanted to finish the manuscript within a year of starting. Here’s a bit about how that went ;) Outwardly, this goal seemed achievable. I started the book on March - Read More -

ALL THE WORLD IS A GAME

I am so privileged to live on a remote island in a situation where I have no real problems. And if there are “problems”…they are self created. Like maybe I didn’t eat enough…or I should have done laundry…or I have a headache from spending too much time editing my book. I have a poverty of desires, - 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 -

THE PATH

I was reminded by social media that I have made some big announcements on this day in history…last year, I announced my move to Africa…in 2015, I met Oprah…and in 2013, I launched this website!  Perhaps every three years (2014, this year) I need rest haha But I am happy to report my good health - Read More -

VISION

In  2012, I took some time away from work. I’d worked continuously in engineering and business roles since 2001 and had never taken a break to consider what I really wanted to be doing. I considered my next steps based on the trajectory of my previous steps. But I felt myself being pulled into a - Read More -

JOY

In the midst of transition, my engineering side comes out. I tend to focus on process and practicality…and I sometimes unknowningly limit my own perception about what’s possible. (Love and abundance is everywhere, except where it is being suppressed by limited perception.) When I attended Agape Spiritual Center last weekend here in LA, I was reminded - 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 -
