Finding what I wasn’t looking for

Man, so much has changed over the past few months and I am finally finding time to sit down and get some of my thoughts out of my head and onto the keyboard. I have found myself in a really present, calm, and happy head-space lately, and I have found that my heart-space has followed […]

it’s not goodbye, it’s see you soon.

  Since before I can remember, I asked for a big brother for Christmas. But not just for Christmas, literally any chance I ever got.

7 things your reflection might forget to say

Wake up in the morning, walk into the bathroom, flip on the light, …and let the attack begin. There you are, five minutes into your morning, and you’re already experiencing a full-blown, no holds barred attack. Negative self-talk thoughts, observations, and even blatant call-outs regarding the person in the mirror staring back at you. You’re […]

stripped to the core.

I just wanted to take a minute to share a short and sweet reminder of something that I constantly forget. I was recently re-reminded (is that even a word?) of this lesson in a meditation class I took while I was visiting Boise a couple weeks ago.   This class involved a series of mini-mediations […]
