Becoming Empty to Receive

These were the words that profoundly struck me in my yoga class this past weekend. It connected things for me on so many levels. Imagine wading out into a swift river carrying a vessel to hold water. If it is already mostly full of rocks and debris you collected on the shore, you won’t have […]

Real Balance

I’ve lived with this odd mantra for much of my life where I want to prove how ‘low maintenance” i can be to other people. I never want to inconvenience others. I need to do everything on my own. All the time. Unfortunately, this line of thinking has caused my downfall over and over again—a […]

Learning to Say Yes

Most people have a hard time saying No. I have a hard time saying yes. Once I realized this, I could see it everywhere. Especially in my home life. Don’t play in the mud. Don’t get dirty. Don’t walk in the kitchen with those shoes on! Don’t push your sister in her car at break […]

The Reality of Podcasting

Podcasting has been a whole new world for me. Aside from the learning curve of using new equipment and software, I have been really amazed at the difference in the process of creating content. In so many ways I feel like I have hidden behind the safety of writing. I can type up a blog […]
