When It’s All Said And Done And It’s Not Enough

Tell me, in your dream of dreams - what would your perfectly designed life look like? What kind of car would you drive? Where would your house be? How many kids would you have? Would you have a dog? How many vacations would you take and where would you go? How much money would you make? Who would you be walking through life with holding your hand and what would your ultimate chosen work be?  Imagine how your life would look in great detail ...

Straight Talk About Self Love & Self Care

I have started and stopped this post 6 times in as many months. What I desire is some straight talk around what it means to truly embrace the concept of self love and self honouring. Self care - if you will.  In the absence of deep ongoing acts of self nourishment, here's what it's not: ** pedicures ** ** 10 minutes of solitude ** ** massages ** ** 60 min meetups with our bestie** I love it all (especially the massages).  I really do. But can we please stop pretending that these "moments" are enough.  They aren't. These things feel good and often become our lifeline, but in the absence of deeper acts of self honouring,  they are simply bandaids.   Twenty examples of what it really means to love and honour...

Sometimes We Need To Walk Ourselves Home

"I know when one doors closes another always opens, but man these hallways are a bitch."   I laugh whenever I come across this quote. I can relate.   I call the hallways transition spaces and although it can feel like I am stuck, I intellectually know I am far from it.   I've come to recognize that these dark, frustrating times are deep meaningful periods in my life.  My soul is doing deep work and I'm shedding the old in preparation for the new. It's the season where the seeds have been planted and I'm staring at the ground waiting for the new growth to appear ...

Four Ways To Benefit From Meditating – Without Actually Meditating

If you’re like me, nailing my butt to a meditation pillow is a colossal lesson in self-discipline. And before you tell me that the discipline is part of the point, let me share my perspective. My modern day take on why most people believe they “should” meditate is because they want what they perceive meditating will help them achieve: more peace, relaxation and self-awareness.   Disclaimer: That's me. You may be different and if so, put your "why" for wanting to meditate in place of peace, relaxation and self-awareness   If meditation is working well for you then I encourage you to keep at it. If you find meditation isn’t happening for you or if you go in and out of periods of meditating with little success, then I...
