    Listen Gently and Intently

    Autumn is knocking so gently on my door. And I’m listening to its rhythm. It asks, let in the air. It says a clean slate awaits. Forgiveness is in the cooling air. Turn in and listen. I am listening to myself so very hard. Not to the chattering of do’s and don’ts but to the […]

  • Choose to Not Choose is Still a Choice

    Choose to Not Choose is Still a Choice

    She rather vehemently insisted that there are no choices. Thank you very little, she understands the concept of “everything is a choice”, just not for her. She’s resigned to that comfortable hell of nothing changes because perhaps it is too overwhelming to consider those other choices. To allow for change would be to admit that […]

    How Their Fear of Creativity Surprised Me

    I probably shouldn’t have been surprised but I was. What I saw on their faces was fear. Specifically fear of creativity.

    Last Summer, I agreed with the small girl inside me that she needed my help to heal. And together, we acknowledged her needs and demands to be allowed to create and play. I participated in creative challenge after creative challenge until reestablished trust with my inner child around the need for play.My adult and child […]

  • Building a Fortress Against the Zombie Thoughts

    Building a Fortress Against the Zombie Thoughts

    I am continuing the story of the siege I suffered of negative thinking recently that left me debilitated. The kind of attack that you are not ready for. An apocalypse from within. And I was powerless for a month as the waves of self-hatred and bullying just kept coming in. I was a loser and […]

Go to the bottom and press the soundcloud button) My biggest shift in increasing my confidence and reducing my anxieties daily was when I paid attention to my relationship with myself.
