LIFE

December 26, 2018

I’ve never felt more alive.
The air, the smells, the freshness,
the appeal of the wild at my fingertips.
Animals, earth, mountain air and spontaneous sky.

There’s not much to say,
there’s not much to be updated.

Love is all around,
love is all there is.
Appreciate wher...

Safety. 

What a loaded word.

I’ve been finding myself in very deep, direct conversations and spending time with people who care enough to push and challenge the words I’m saying. Why be in the victimhood mentality, the space of scarcity and lack of self-worth?

Curious, I...

In process.

I keep this energy in my head.

It sticks to my throat and manifests as anxiety.

How do I get out of the buzzing thoughts that need to come out - to form creation. 

But create what? 

Here is where I live. 

This is what I move away from. 

Quite literally, and figura...

Church.

It’s Sunday morning and I’m driving to Church. The only time I go to church since being a real adult is to attend funerals. 

The day is bright, bursting with autumn colors and truly stunning. The sun rays pour through the trees as I tangle myself and car through...

I thought people’s generosity meant that they care.

That they want what’s best for me, and for them.

Yet, it’s never equal — 

I’m quickly taught.

I don’t know how to put myself first.

I don’t know what it feels like to tell someone you aren’t good for me.

I don’t know how to...

It’s 7:19pm on a Friday. Just over one week of life in the Southwest. Just under one week of life being 30 years young(ish).

Land of Enchantment is no lie. The streets whisper secrets in the wind. But you must pay attention and be at ease in every moment to appreciate t...

I moved from Milwaukee to Santa Fe in order to break my workaholic, go-go-go and the addicted to being too busy kind of lifestyle. 

Today I woke up, walked the dogs for an hour, fed them by creating a homemade mix of organic starch, bison and green vegetables covered wi...

I've been trying too hard

Too hard to make money

Too hard to hold on to solid friendships 

Too hard to build family ties

Too hard to cultivate self love.

I've decided it's time to do

Time to create a relationship with abundance

Time to let go of the people I should be loyal t...

Last night I went to a hot yoga class. Every so often my body calls out for a sweaty yoga sesh that pushes me to my edge.

I always have the best of intentions walking into class in order to feed my spirit, stretch and strengthen my muscles and connect my breath with the...
