Day 48 of 365: brevity (a post in less than 50 words)

“Write anything. Then narrow it down.” I now hush rules and begin. Work out kinks later. I’ve been experiencing present-moment enjoyment lately. Anxiety says, “Struggling = working hard; enjoyment = laziness.” Peace chimes in, “You’re right where you need to be: in the unknown. Relax and enjoy.” And so it is.

Day 46 of 365: freedom is sexy

I got dressed up all fancy-pants tonight. I wore a red dress. I wore heels for the first time in a year, straightened my hair for the bi-annual occurrence of doing so, and wore contacts. Oh. And red lipstick. The last time I wore lipstick was 5 years ago. I bought it for a Halloween […]

Day 41 of 365: NOT ‘SPOSED TO DIG

I’ve noticed an increasing number of posts, articles, and coaches discussing the importance of feeling and expressing repressed emotions. This is fabulous.

Day 40 of 365: the awakening of my femininity

Okay, I know this journey of embracing the unknown is making huge changes in my life… Because even a month ago, the very thought of including the word “femininity” in a TITLE OF A BLOG POST would have made me cringe and scrunch my face. I went to the Dirty South Yoga Festival today. It was a […]

Day 39 of 365: Releasing the victimhood of “can’t”

Writer’s block or any type of creative or emotional block is an illusion. It’s easier for us to blame our stagnancy on some… thing. Some force, whether outside or inside of us. Blaming someone or something else, whether it’s a needy partner or a busy schedule or a creative well run dry, is merely a form of […]
