Let’s Talk About Rest When was the last time you were able to truly rest?  I am not talking about a 10 minute break or that lunch hour eating your sandwich. I am talking about active resting, which may sound like an oxymoron, but stick with me here. Active resting is about loving your body….

Celebrate Another Year Around The Sun

It’s My Birthday Month It is truly a gift to celebrate another year around the sun! I feel truly blessed and grateful  to add another year to this beautiful thing called life. I know for so many people getting older can feel like a death sentence. For me, I choose to fully celebrate life and embrace the gifts….

The In-Between Space

The Pull Sometimes courage is not always about the destination. The final point. The grand reveal. Sometimes courage is about the in-between. The in-between of the life you’ve been living and the life you are meant to live. Lately, I’ve been experiencing a lot of the in-between space. Ready to leave my old self behind….

“Why Do You Write About Courage?”

“Why Do You Write About Courage?” Someone asked me why I write about courage. It made me pause and I thought about it. Writing about courage seemed to be what I needed and had to do. It wasn’t a drawn out plan where I had topics to choose from and courage made the list. It….

The Sweet Surrender

Goodbye 2022 And just like that 2022 is coming to a close. It would be so ambitious to say I am ready to close out the year and set big lofty goals for 2023. If there is one thing I’ve learned in 2022, it’s that life has a way of happening in the most unexpected….

Let It Go 

Let It Go Spring is slowly making its way in my neck of the woods. There have been a lot of cold days mixed in with a few sunny and warm days.  It feels like winter does not want to let go and make room for spring. The cold days have felt very cold and….

Finding Beauty in the Mess

The words beauty and mess couldn’t be further apart from one another but somehow they can manage to co-exist. They are two words that remind us how life can show up or better yet, how you can show up in life and find beauty in the mess. Life sure has a way of showing up…..

Trust Your Timing

Stop the Coulds and the Shoulds Trust your timing. As I sit on my couch and write this post, I can’t believe April has arrived. I had all these intentions set for March and I barely accomplished the goals I wanted.  I love writing for my blog and recording my  podcast. The thing is I….

Comparison is the Thief of Joy

Comparison is the Thief of Joy Comparison is the thief of joy. This famous quote by Theodore Roosevelt often reminds me of the importance of choosing the courage to be myself.  It’s so easy to glance at what others are doing and think we are not good enough, have not accomplished enough, or living life….
