returning home : it’s not where you think it is

27 Jan 2015 spirit + soul

after weeks of utter chaos + craziness, i finally settled down just enough to meditate. yes, i haven’t done real, alone, focused meditation since the middle of december. since then, life has been a little bit out of the ordinary with houseguests, the holidays, a little trip, and a huge move across the atlantic. needless to say, i did not prioritize my daily morning rituals – and boy, has my soul felt it. however, i am not beating myself upRead More
