Friday Reflections

Every Friday, I reflect on the week that has just passed by doing a little sensory exercise. This practice is a gentle, easy way to tune into how we are doing, what we are experiencing, and what we are grateful for while more acutely tuning into our senses. It’s a whole heart exercise with plenty […]

On Noticing

On Noticing

It is perhaps the simplest truth about the human condition but the hardest to act upon. In the end, it comes down to this: we all just want to be noticed. We just want to be seen, heard, and told that we matter. If I could just know that I matter, we think, I could […]

Ignited. a manifesto

Ignited. a manifesto

Ignite. That’s no small word. And so when I chose it for my 2015 word of the year, I knew I needed to name it, to spell it out, to claim what I wanted from it. Who would I be if I was ignited?  How would I be?  Vital. Vibrant.  Radiant. Connected. Warm. Energetic.  Living a […]

A Blog Year in Review

A Blog Year in Review

  In my end of the year personal summit, one of the things that I looked into was what blog posts resonated with readers in 2014.  While my blog isn’t monetized, it’s important to me to feel like I am contributing something of meaning or use or relief to the world and writing here is […]

Ignite (and what to do if your word for the year won't come to you)

In November, I started to scrawl potential words for the year in my little idea notebook.  They all felt really good, really close, but not like they were it. And so I started thinking about what feeling they evoked in me, what my deepest desire was for my life RIGHT NOW and writing about that. […]
