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

My Wings

Sharing one of my most vulnerable and treasured stories, originally published by University of Wellness. I am unafraid to talk about my struggles, probably because I don’t view them as struggles, problems, hurdles or even speedbumps. They are just factors of or moments in my journey. Do you perceive a hurdle in the distance and… Continue reading My Wings

We Need You.

Imagine if a flower decided not to bloom because there were so many other flowers in bloom already? That doesn’t even make any sense, right? So why are you holding back on your dream because someone else is “already doing it”? Tell that to the four yoga studios in a two-block radius in the town… Continue reading We Need You.

You say you want it…

We do a lot of talking and thinking about our goals, our “gets”, our dreams and wishes… and we say these are things we want, conditions we want to experience, situations we want to manifest. But do you even remotely put in the work? You might think you do. But let’s break it down. Let’s… Continue reading You say you want it…

For everyone celebrating something today, I wish you and yours a happy one. I had the honor of spending yesterday with a very special boy, local celebunny Paddington.   In a town in central Nassau county, about two months ago, a woman found a domestic rabbit in her yard. She was able to pick him… Continue reading Paddington

Equivalent Advantage

Members of our Rescue team were on two missions today: one squad was out on a catch and another squad was conducting adoptions. The catch was unsuccessful and the adoption didn’t happen. The abandoned rabbit was super scared and elusive. The environment in which he’s been abandoned is complicated. The adopter came to meet adoptable… Continue reading Equivalent Advantage

Who am I to…

Yesterday afternoon, I sat on a blue and teal seat, facing forward (although facing backward doesn’t bother me) on the Long Island Railroad. I was Manhattan-bound to see one of my spiritual advisors, psychic medium Calise Simone. On my journey, I read from The Gifts of Imperfection by Dr. Brene’ Brown. This is the book… Continue reading Who am I to…

Why. My Young Living Story.

Why… because I can’t not. Ooooooooo the English teacher just rocked a double negative! Because I don’t define myself as an English teacher. I am not my job. But society will try to force you into labeling and identifying as what you do. That never sat right with me and, for years, I wouldn’t tell… Continue reading Why. My Young Living Story.

Splash On…

On Long Island, there’s a water park called Splish Splash. It opened in 1991. It’s way out east. You can see the tallest slides from the highway as you drive by. During elementary school years, we went to Splish Splash on field trips through the Summer Recreation program, a day camp through our school district.… Continue reading Splash On…
