The things I am loving this late summer season:Read More
It can feel overwhelming.
If, and when, you look … there is a lot of sadness that needs our global attention. The trash and recycling epidemic. Immigrant families and how they are treated at the borders. Our past that still needs healing and the future that, at times, feels like too big of a burden to save.
But, the weight of all these problems are not yours alone. They are collectively ours, as a global community. And what each of us does in our smaller communities, within our homes, at the grocery store … there are attainable simple ways we can shift our engagement and feel good about our progress. No matter how large or small.Read More
I am in awe.
There are so many people in our world doing such incredible things. Running businesses, saving lives, thinking outside the box and creating new structures in which to inspire our own lives. Modern day superheroes.Read More
We set the clocks forward. And with it I feel the beginning of a new season. The time of spring.
But before moving forward, I have to say thank you to winter. Before welcoming the blossoms, new life, sunshine showers, and candy filled egg hunts …. thank you.Read More
Earlier this month I had the opportunity to host a group of women to welcome the new moon, connect with one another, and explore a bit about our connection to the moon as women.
These women inspired me so much.
What they had to say. Their challenges. Their truth. Their curiosities.
As women, we experience roughly the same hormonal cycle as the moon’s lunar cycle. A woman’s hormonal cycle is typically 27-30 days and the lunar cycle is 29.5 days. We are sensitive and intuitive beings that have the superpower of being divinely aligned + connected with nature.
Its actually pretty cool.
Looking to the moon for guidance, we can learn more about ourselves as well.Read More
How in this world do we stay true to ourselves?
To come to know who we are, our values, what drives us?
Most mornings when my 3 year old is up early enough to catch me doing my makeup, he is so excited to join in. Bronzer and a brush are his favorite.
My brain fast forward to 10 years in the future. When he may feel embarrassed to engage in such fun, just because he’s a boy.
The silly rules the world teaches us.Read More
Its just a simple desk.
Its something my husband nailed to the wall. But he created space for me. Once an empty corner is a space for me to unfold. To unfold and tap into who I am.
I play my favorite french music. I do my makeup. I tap tap my fingers to write and reflect. Here in this little corner, I feel at home.
Its just a simple desk.
That my husband built.
It came together with a creative vision and some words exchanged and hammer, wood, and nails.
Its this humble space where I unfold.
Its this humble space that waits for me every morning as I sip my tea and holds space for me to just be who I am. And who I want to be.
This simple little corner. I feel more connected and true and honest here more than anywhere.
And what other open spaces and simple little things are waiting for us to give life to?
Maybe if we curbed our worry and our complaints, we could start creating simple, little things that changed our lives in simple, huge ways.
Maybe if we thought, what can I build, instead of what isn’t right, we would surprise ourselves with the capacity we hold and what we can become. With who we already are, hiding behind what we are certain isn’t right.
Maybe. It just takes a little corner, some creativity, and some help.
I wanted to pop in and wish you a beautiful start to the holidays.
As we are inevitably doing a lot of rushing and doing, I also wanted to remind you that December, that winter, is a time of quiet. Its a time when we naturally want to look inward, and with the darker days around us, we can reflect and let go of anything that is not in alignment with our soul.Read More
The summer is a time of light, and a time of major shifts to take hold. I am so grateful for the tools, the people, and the resources that I have discovered this season to support me in elevating and evolving my self-care, my relationships, and my day to day experience.Read More
The summer solstice is approaching, signaling for us to recognize the rhythms of our earth, of our bodies, and our lives.
As I prepare to host Nourish 360's Women's Summer Solstice Dinner + Intention Setting Workshop this Saturday, I wrote a prayer, a wish.Read More
