I have proven it to myself – a different way is possible

Grateful for a New Year

I don’t know that I have ever been so ready and relieved to step into a new year.  I feel like 2017 was full of trauma.  Like it was in the air, trauma.  My life and my little family are all doing great, really great, but man – I feel like 2017 was full of […] Read the full post here.

Motherhood – My Truth

My truth about motherhood is:  for the first decade it is a daily meditation of sincere pretending and grasping onto the simplest pleasures in order to stay sane, while wise little souls repeatedly remind me of all that I am not – and because the candy cane vision of myself and what “family” can be […] Read the full post here.

Indifference

It was suggested that I explore the energy of indifference during a weekend workshop that I recently attended of Don and Diane St John’s, Growing Into Wholeness – The Frontiers of Well-Being. Throughout the weekend we explored how we tend to identify with our primary-selves and that we should also allow room for our disowned-selves; […] Read the full post here.
