A life that feels like home

When you start to slow down in a noisy world you begin to feel a homecoming within yourself. You also begin to feel which things in life feel off and are no longer working for you. The world is constantly telling you what to value, what is expected of you, what...

Discovering self-acceptance

Last week I shared with you a small bit of my journey of going against the grain and courageously carving out a unique life. Today I want to share with you what was needed and required of me to create a path that veers off of mainstream, because as you probably have...

Against the grain

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been going against the grain. I’ve always wanted to do things differently, not because I’m a rebel (well, maybe just a lil’ bit), but because I felt where mainstream was heading wasn’t always for me.   I didn’t want to get married right...

Sensitivity is a gift

This Saturday morning I’ll be meeting up with some lovely women and we will be discussing the theme around sensitivity. I often like to look up words in the dictionary (ummm, I mean “google” them) that mean something to me so I can understand the word on a deeper...

Digging deep and peeling back the layers

I remember when I was 18 years old I bought a book titled “why we think the way we do” or maybe it was “why we act the way we do”. Even at a young age I was interested in humanity and the behaviors and thoughts of people. ⁣ ⁣ This hasn’t changed much as I am...

Seasonal living: we are nature after all

I’m a big fan of seasonal living (we are nature after all) and purposefully crafting a weekly rhythm for each season of the year. My summer routines, habits, and priorities are pretty different from my current winter ones. ⁣ ⁣ During these winter months, my morning...
