  • And Then I Ran into Shame

    And Then I Ran into Shame

    What I’ve been experiencing, this coming back to myself and my creativity, is like I’m attempting to reboot and recover my files after a power shutdown.

    As Summer Rolls On

    I have continued to remain somewhat unplugged as Summer has set in and taken hold of my family life. A continuation from my last post in which I spoke of letting things sit and seeing what they mean and where to go from here. My intuition told me that in order to understand, I needed […]

    What Is this Shame of Not Fulfilling My Potential?

    There’s a common theme that I have noticed with creative smart women. Many of us are tangled in guilt and shame around our fear to show up for ourselves and the world. As if we don’t have enough to worry about.   Where does this come from? The answer to shame game is always Fear. […]
