gentle.

The first thing I say to a mama traveling this difficult path is a seemingly simple message. Be gentle, I say. Be gentle.   And I think, somewhere, that resonates and perhaps she hears me.  But more often than not, I think, we hear that, make a few minor adjustments to allow for some space in our lives, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

seasons.

Little by little I am learning to trust the cycles, the seasons, of my life.  As I get older I am beginning to notice life moves along in ebbs in flows, in all facets, all the time.  Somewhere inside myself I had this knowledge and could sense it, but only sort of.  It is only […]

early musings.

Beware. This post is just musings.  Thoughts that have been running through my mind off and on lately. Someone very near and dear is pregnant. Early pregnant. Pre 12 weeks pregnant. When she told me, I wanted to jump for joy and start the celebrations.  Privately, I did.  I sent her a card with the […]

in gratitude

I am writing this morning while looking out the window into fog, clouds, silence, and mystery.  It is so quiet.  It is so still.  I am finding myself so grateful for this particular moment. I wasn’t quite sure what was so special about this particular moment and then suddenly I did.  The stillness was feeling […]
