Then, when the pain got to be much to...

Elements of Authenticity. How I Started & Why I Continue

How the Elements of Authenticity actualized for me... When I first started out on this journey of self discovery, one of the most profound things that happened was that I literally burst out from behind the cinder-block wall that had me imprisoned within myself… safe… guarded… paralyzed. And there in the light of day, I realized that not only was I capable of much more than I knew, I wanted to do so much more...

How do we remember music? Why is it easy?

How do we remember music? Why is it easier?

Do you remember music easily? Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. I am actually pretty good with lyrics and keeping the beat although I wouldn't say my singing voice is going to get me any time in the spotlight. Then there are interesting musical incidents like the one that happened recently. While I was driving home from work...mentally preparing for 20 days off in a row, the radio was playing the "all request lunch hour"...

The fear is not always ours…Who’s fear are you fighting?

I see you out there. Pondering. Waiting patiently. Holding your dream in your heart like a secret. You might be waiting for permission (stop that btw) or for a sign (here's your fucking sign). You are probably feeling a shit-ton of fear (normal) and all the while you're doing your best to convince yourself that fear is a good thing (which can be true if a bear is chasing you). What I would like you...

Make connections through writing.

I have been really settling into this growing period, and learning how to make connections to parts of myself I had chosen to forget. I have noticed that as I continue to put my energy where it wants to be...inside a book I get unbelievable urges to write. I have known for a very long time that journaling in the morning is cathartic for me and I learn deep and profound details about myself in...

Lifestyle Change Wanted!

Well today is the day that our new life begins! My family has decided that it was time we start actually living the life we want for ourselves. (Well we decided for the girls...although I am interested in getting their opinion on this.) Now nothing major here, (we aren't going off grid or anything), we have just decided to do away with the pounds of garbage we have been mindlessly putting in. It's funny, no...

Being seen by everyone but me…

In my before life, I worked very hard to be who I thought I was supposed to be. The fact that I was being seen never even occurred to me. Recently I realized that I was so busy that I didn't notice my Self sneaking out in my unconscious behaviour; in my friendships, my work relationships, and in solitary acts I had no idea people took notice of. I would find myself amazed when someone really...

This has been a tough week…

This has been a tough week and I have tried to think my way through it yet something still seems unsettled.. Calling myself an ambivert has felt right for a while...I have long since identified with the need to recharge quietly by myself and truly enjoy solitary activities alongside feeling pure joy in the company of others. That being said this week has been extremely eye-opening to how introverted I can be. I have had...
