intent.

I don’t believe in setting New Year’s goals. I believe in intentions.  Goals stress me out. I’m such a list maker by nature, always looking for ways to improve or do more, that goals don’t serve me well.  They make me feel as though I’m not doing enough.  And what’s the point of that? I am […]

Uplift: morning routine

I’m sharing my first contribution to Project Uplift today.  When I created this video, I initially made a mistake in the hand mudra I was demonstrating – shown below – that’s not how I meant to position my fingers, but this hand position happens to be Sign Language for I love you.  So, I guess I […]

the search

My darlings, the turn towards darkness is upon us.  Daylight Savings Time ended, causing night fall to occur ridiculously early here in the Pacific NorthWest.  I adore my long sunshine filled days, and was sort of dreading the arrival of early nightfall.  It can be so dark.  So very dark.  There were a couple years when […]

Hello ladies.

a blessing for beauty

While on the Return To Zero Retreat this past weekend I was left speechless time and again.  For anyone who knows me well, they know I’m not usually one to find difficulty in talking.  But this weekend.  Was simply too beautiful for words. One moment that left me completely floored, with chills up and down […]

what else is there?

There was a time, not so long ago, really, when I used to wake every day under the dark cloud of anxiety.  Some days, I awoke already paralyzed by fear and doubt – and – being a Type A problem solver kind of gal, would start the day with a list of all the things […]

shine.

This was my most recent post to the online magazine I write for, Pregnancy After Loss Support. http://www.pregnancyafterlosssupport.com/shine-on-mama/ I hesitated in sharing it on this page, as the moments after pregnancy loss sure don’t feel radiant at all.  But I was thinking, that even within the sadness, I want you to find times when you […]

Valentines Day

I woke up today and realized Valentine’s Day is around the corner.  I probably should have noticed it was coming a bit sooner.  But I didn’t, and I’m not going to worry about it.  Instead, I’m going to treat myself this year.  Nothing extravagant, nothing remarkable.  Simply this:  I’m going to write a love letter.  To […]

many ways to grieve

I am so sad. My heart is so sad. This isn’t about baby loss.  But it is about allowing for the sad when it hits you.  It is about grief, and the way I continue to experience grief in different times in my life.  I am finally learning not to search for an explanation, but […]
