- I write differently. - I tend to write sentences that are more a statement of my truth rather than points to be argued. - I write sentences as a list that I shift and reorder over and over until it congeals into a cohesive piece. - My sentences are often numbered- but not today. … Continue reading Technique.
Gifts are something I desire to spend more time contemplating. I want to get gifts that are special and aligned with the aspirations and desires of the recipient. I feel like Christmas, Birthday, and other presents should support who the recipient wants to be as they move into a new calendar year or year of … Continue reading Conscious Gifting.
I love to be able to say an enthusiastic 'yes!' I love to be ready and confident in my 'yes.' I love to feel so well tended to that when I say 'yes' it comes from a place of giving what is overflowing in my life. I love to be able to say 'yes' to … Continue reading Yes.
Not Here for the “Likes”.
Why do we care so much if someone "likes" our online posts? I've been considering this idea for some time and I find it fascinating.

“Tell Me More About That”
"Tell me more about that" is such a profound statement in what is likely an intense conversation. It can be like water on an inferno.
