Day 16: The pain of being present in the dark

20 Dec 2017 spirit + soul

I’m over it. Work, that is. Oh, don’t worry. There’s nothing wrong. My job is just as fabulous as it always is. I just need a break. I need to step away from it all + not think about any of it for a few weeks. A change of pace + a change of setting. I need to release, let go, and renew. And, yes, I live consciously + slowly, which keeps my life pretty damn beautifully balanced and aligned.Read More

Being present. Day 4: Get creative + live in the moment

And, this morning as I opened up my computer to begin writing this post, I realized that I haven’t yet shared my plan with you.Read More

Being present. Day 2: How not to start your (Monday) morning

4 Dec 2017 mixtapes

I almost seriously overslept this morning. You’d think that after a cozy, slow weekend at home, I’d be all rested up, but apparently I turned off my alarm at 5:40 and dropped back into a deep sleep. I blame it on the super full moon. She had me all messed up all night long. In any case, I woke with a start at 6:15 and jumped out of bed. Not at all the most awesome way to start a MondayRead More
