Your word is power…

When you think of your word as power you realize you have the golden key to unlock any door you desire. Whatever it is that you want to have in your life  you can create it…As if out of thin air…. How? With your word. If you want someone to be a jerk, call them a jerk and guess what … They become a jerk (to you). If you want to be loving… tell someone you love them…. And just like that you have become loving. With that kind of power at the tip of your tongue plus a bit of mindfulness to useContinue Reading >>

Spring cleaning and stress detox

  I’m a little excited that Spring is officially here. Today (March 20th) marks the first day of Spring, it’s also the International Day of Happiness. and to top it off it’s Friday. TGIF!!!

Slow down to the point of stillness

  Sometimes I don’t want to move. I don’t want to run, bike, lift heavy objects, read, write, or speak. Sometimes I just want to sit still in a moment and be there. Fully there.

If you create it, it will always be there. Today I invite you to sit still amongst the chaos and just be. You’ll be surprised at all that you discover – good,Continue Reading >>

Let’s dance!

  Dance on the edge of failure.  It’s easier to quit than to dance, I know this firsthand. After months of being off my bike I got back on this Saturday for a 50 mile bike ride with 5 epic hills and 4,000 feet of climbing.   Yes, I wanted to quit. It was hot, I was tired and the hills were steep. But underneath it all I was scared. I was scared to fail. I was scared to admit I wasn’t as strong as I used to be.   And then I made a choice. I choose to keepContinue Reading >>

Meditate anytime, anywhere

Back in September I was desperately looking for a local hair stylist to do an emergency color touch up for me, my only criteria was that she was walking distance from where I lived and had a 4 star review. I resorted to YELP and narrowed my search down to a stylist that was 2 blocks away, had rave reviews, and a fun salon name “the urban chair”. Unfortunately everyone else had the same idea as me; she was fully booked for the next 2 months. However, she was nice enough to point me in the direction of another salonContinue Reading >>
