I feel the deep need to respect the process of where I’m at in life, hence this affirmation for all things. Instead of planning and plotting every move, I’d like to just BE in the moment and go with the flow that’s always flowing. I hope these words help you reconnect with the great miracle […]
Overwhelm is something I’m all too familiar with. Though I’m much better equipped nowadays to handle the stress of being a human, life still feels a little too hard sometimes. (Maybe it’s not really life itself, but the world we live in.) Since writing can be such a powerful tool for calming the chaos, here’s […]
No matter how loud the opposition is, and no matter how deep the temptation to hide may be, stay true to your vision for yourself. Stay receptive to the call of your deepest desires, and affirm that you can rise above the pressure to be anyone or anything else. This is your life, after all, and it’s […]
It’s easy to declare “I am grateful!” when life is obviously going very well and looks blessed from all angles. How could we possibly be grateful for everything, though—the lows, the “bad,” the mistakes and failures, the pain and suffering? We’re bound to experience all sorts of resistance to gratitude during more difficult experiences, but […]
The true healing power of forgiveness resides within, dormant until we consciously awaken its potential. Forgiveness brings many things, but above all it releases others from our ropes, releasing us from having to drag around the weight of every attack.

[…]
By visualizing a particular nature scene, I’ve begun to bring a little more ease into my life. I really love this mindfulness practice (and I’m still working on it) because it frees me from clinging to all the never-ending thoughts. Plus, it fits in perfectly with the changing seasons.
Whatever it is you want, however you want to have it, no matter why you want to have it, you can have it faster and easier if you can be happy first, without it. What I mean by this, is that internal control is a much more effective way of going about living a deeply […]
If you want to know how to make yourself happy, check in with your day-to-day habits, patterns, preferences, activities, and choices. The slightest shift in another direction, one good-feeling thought, and a single moment of heightened awareness carries the potential to carry you into more joyous territory. Don’t discount the “little” things.
Sit with your discomfort, and you’ll see what lies underneath those uncomfortable feelings. Every emotion is a guide, pointing you to self-discovery and the kind of life you want to be living. When good things are falling apart, and you need a little more light, consider what healing lies above and beyond the immediate and […]
