Your warm embrace All my painful memories erasedYou hold me, ever present The old me wasn’t present But now I’m sustained Purely by the shine of your rays
Slowing down No longer living with expectations Chasing after shoulds Doing it because they are Because they “can” Not that I ever know their behind the scenes What works for me? What is sustainable? What speaks to me? What matches my inner truth?
I put the water bottle in her room so she wouldn’t ask for it at 3 am like the night before. I thought I had it made. “I’m gonna sleep like a baby tonight!” Nope. Faint words began to interrupt my dream. Moments later, I’m up. She didn’t need more water this time, she needed … Continue reading Good Morning! Wait, What?! It’s 3 am!
I like taking life experiences and writing about them in a way that is empowering.But that’s not always possible.Sometimes, life is just hard. Almost every time I break my bedtime (yes I have one), either my lovely child wakes me up in the middle of the night and/or my racing mind.

This morning, my plastic fork broke while I was cutting my avocado toast. The forks at work are pretty hardy plastic and this is the first time this has happened.

We are all just works in progress, growing brick by brick. 2) A bad morning can fuel a lovely afternoon jog or inspire a … Continue reading Friendly Reminders for When Your Day Gets off to a Rough Start

And living in a culture that cultivates being saved by another doesn't help! My journey in self-love had its beginnings in … Continue reading Love Is in the Air

Today was a very special morning! I got to do all my stretches! With having to get to work some mornings and having to wake up for my child on the others ones, I barely have enough time in the morning to stretch! I have an abbreviated version of course. But, It.
