Picking up the pen.

Why is it I can make out something to be so big in my head? I can strategize. I can stress. I can play it out every single step of the way. But I don't begin. I delay. I extend my runway — again and again and again. Sometimes I realize, thank goodness, I am in the thick of doing this, and I stop. And I get busy doing instead of thinking about it all. That's where I am right now, y'all.

My Birth Story

On December 12th, I became a mother. A parent. A partner. And a goddess. My husband and I had been dreaming of this birth-day all year. We couldn’t wait to find out who was being knit together inside me and to finally meet him or her, our surprise baby. Our bags had been packed for a couple weeks. The house was cozy and clean. (Seriously, I joked that if I swept, vacuumed, mopped or cleaned one more time, layers of varnish would start to peel off the wood floors and the rugs would start to fall apart.) Every detail was ready for this special soul and our new family to begin. We enjoyed the first snow of the year together, and felt the magic of seeing our world blanketed in white, ushering in the dark and cozy winter season. Excitement and blessings were everywhere.

What If We Got This One Thing Right Instead of Chasing Success First

The reason I've decided to dig into my recent topics, sharing so transparently in these blog posts, is that I get asked these questions every day from amazing people who are tired of watching and are wanting to do. When I say do I mean make a shift or positive pivot with the new seasons of their life. Feel better. Heck, look better. Feel like they are thriving instead of surviving. And ultimately, tap into their power so that no matter what intersection of circumstances they find themselves in, they are centered, grateful, and empowered to be living and breathing in a time such as this.

The Two Sentences That Set Me Free On a Daily Basis

"Her family is so much more together than mine." "I dropped the ball... I think I'll jump back in next month." "She is a rockstar in her business, there's no way I could do what she does." "I can't keep up with the pace, I must not be good at this." "I'm not going to say anything. I don't want it to seem like I am bragging." ...Whew. Welcome, sister. This week's post is an honest peek through the keyhole that we can silently choose to see ourselves through.

The light will not be contained.

You will most always see me smiling. It's something that makes me feel better. It invites love in. It says, “You are welcome here." It's not about pretending everything is perfect. To me, it’s a beautiful banner of triumph. But earlier this week, if you peeked into my window in the soft morning light, you would see me laying on my little love seat with Wally, our toy poodle, in our reading room, snuggled under a blanket, tears coming down my face (as Wally did everything to keep up with licking them away.)...

Closing the loop... What have you been carrying for the last 19 years?

Anyone else feeling all the feels today? 🙋🏼  I woke up with gusto and crashed fast which resulted in what I like to call a "morning nap". 🌝  One hour later, I stretched back awake (for a second time) and popped open my email to a beautiful lineup of my soul sisters sharing about today's lunar eclipse. Ah, makes sense.

Letting yourself be loved.

Earlier this week I was enjoying a hot bath. It was a delicious pause from the swirl of my day. As I relaxed and sunk in a little deeper, I thought about the tendency to jump into the next thing, to resist help - soldiering on until the feeling of readiness and safety dominates the hesitation to let someone else in. That old muscle that only wants to strategize for a plan.
