Resources for Peace

As for the news… Get the facts from your trusted source then shut. it. off. And stay home, if you can, please. Behold the possibility of the days. Here are some of my favorite resources for breaks and self-care while working from home: The incredibly relatable and generous Adriene Mischler, star of Yoga with Adriene,… Continue reading Resources for Peace

Cheers.

I don’t journal daily. I vision cast and write about my goals and the movement I’m forging alongside you beauties but I don’t write about my day or my feelings with consistency… except here. I do keep a precise calendar. You can’t manage time but you can manage activity. You’ve heard me say before that… Continue reading Cheers.

The Essence

In the gaps of time this weekend, I’m watching season three of Netflix’s Atypical, a show that has given me more perspective about teaching individuals with Autism than any graduate or professional development course ever did. In the episode I finished this morning, protagonist Sam is tasked with an assignment about essence. Specifically, he has… Continue reading The Essence

Stop. Pick One.

I woke up this morning and before both feet hit the ground, my mile-long To Do list starting scrolling in my mind. Within a minute of being awake, the overwhelm kicked in and I felt like I had just so much to do that I had to start now and not stop (probably forever). I… Continue reading Stop. Pick One.

Two Years Gone

On this, the eve of the two year anniversary of my dear friend’s passing, I’m re-posting the story I wrote about her, about us, the day after she left this mortal coil. Before you read this, please call or text that one person you’ve been meaning to reach out to. Take that time. Even if… Continue reading Two Years Gone

Bright Spirit, the spiritual book club that I co-host with Dina of Crystalicious NYC, studied Rising Strong by Brené Brown as our most recent pick.   This book quickly became a part of my soul.  I, too, struggle with vulnerability.  I was the girl… Continue reading So Strong

Balance

I’m always Even Stephen (your inclination might be to spell Stephen with a V here but I must pay appropriate homage to my uncle/best friend/birthday buddy and remain PH balanced).  There’s something magical in balance of things.  Maybe it’s because I was raised by a Libra; my mother is the one always making sure everyone… Continue reading Balance

Missing Piece

I am no longer allowing this missing piece translate to missing peace.  I am telling a new story.  You are the first to hear about it.  Grateful to you for “listening” today. I’ve been holding back from truly stepping into a component of this work and of my personal development because there is a piece… Continue reading Missing Piece
