You have ACES, baby!

We are all dealt a hand of cards when we’re born. Genetics. Family. Geography. But…how you play the hand is up to you. Last night, I was watching a poker game. Everyone at the table plays a certain character at the table. The old dude who is extra chatty and drunk. The aloof guy whoContinue reading “You have ACES, baby!”

I see you

Hi. I see you. 👀 You. Walking down the street, looking like you have it all. Coifed hair. Nice shoes. Perfect makeup. Good job. Good relationship. Nice car. Pretty house. 2.5 kids, dog, picket fence. Glazed over eyes, just going through the motions. Numb. Numbing yourself with Facebook, instagram, candy crush. I see you. YouContinue reading “I see you”

I’m pressed but not crushed

Do you know that song? It’s been racing through my head for two days now…but I digress. At the beginning of the blog. Oy vey. The ebb and flow of life is really interesting to me. Some days are amazing and some days I’m amazed I remember to breathe. Right now, I’m in a crucible/pressingContinue reading “I’m pressed but not crushed”

Desert Time

Hey there! So…I’ve been MIA. A lot has been going on in my world, causing me to neglect my first passion…which is writing. There are times when I want to shout from the mountaintops what is going on…and times when I’m huddled in my turtle shell, well…just hiding in my shell. The past few weeksContinue reading “Desert Time”

The illusion seems so real

So…I realize that I’ve been radio silent. Again. It’s amazing how easy it is to let life steal my voice. A few weeks ago I had a major breakthrough only to hit a wall. So many times I feel like the crazy person in the middle of this illustration…spinning my wheels, exerting a lot ofContinue reading “The illusion seems so real”

Thunderbolts and fire

Years ago, there was a woman who spoke something over me. In the ensuing 20 years, I’ve thought of that word sporadically…but it never seemed…possible. I held lightly onto what she said…but if I told you that it brought me comfort, I’d be lying. I used a beautiful word spoken over me as a barteringContinue reading “Thunderbolts and fire”

Stop being selfish

Sunday I attended an event that was amazing. I admit…I went to support a friend and because I’m a fan girl of the trainer that was the headliner. I knew I’d be inspired by the trainer. Imagine my surprise when I was inspired for nearly the entire day. Imagine my shock when both the corporateContinue reading “Stop being selfish”

Live NOW

It’s so easy to live for the weekend, for a vacation, for a birthday dinner. The challenge we all face is not letting life pass us by whilst waiting for an event. Take a minute to breathe. Feel the air pass through your nose, into your lungs. Feel your chest and abdomen expand. As youContinue reading “Live NOW”

The Power of YOU

Yesterday started off so well. My morning was super productive. I felt like a million bucks. Then…I don’t know what happened. My energy drained from me, like I unplugged the stopper in a bathtub. I had been celebrating a victory…a small battle won that felt like a hard fought victory for the good guys. ButContinue reading “The Power of YOU”

Intuition

When I was a kid, my family and I were on vacation in the Poconos, and for an entire day, I was so sad I cried all day. Nothing could cheer me up. When we got home, we found out that one of our relatives in Germany, who I had never met, had passed away.Continue reading “Intuition”
