- 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.
I feel like I've come to the other side of something more than just Winter. I spent February resting as per my list of monthly focus topics. It was beautiful to release all pressure on myself. No pressure to go out. No pressure to have the neatest home. No pressure to be the most organized. … Continue reading Emerge.
I've struggled with routine and self-discipline for much of my life. I was often reminded of it by the people around me. Lazy. Absent-minded. Forgetful. Scatter-brained. Irresponsible. Undisciplined. At the end of the day undisciplined is probably the best descriptor of what was going on. Discipline for me evokes ideas of tasks that are militant, … Continue reading Self-Discipline.
Happy New Year! This year I am committing to more writing and have a bit of a plan. Each month I am going to work through a wellness topic, explore different aspects, and hopefully discover some beliefs and habits that can be cleared and replaced with something more in-line with where I am right now. … Continue reading 2022.

I don't do that, but I acknowledge a narrowing of my awareness to what is truly crucial in this present moment. Leading up to the … Continue reading Release.
Life hasn't been smooth-sailing lately. I have been quietly wading through a trough in my depression/anxiety experience these past few weeks. I'm grateful for recovering, however slowly. I'm also extremely grateful for the new insights I've had this time around. It's amazing what a look at the basics will yield... a good honest look at … Continue reading Sleep.
It is a new day and I am grateful. For every challenging day I have, I know that a good rest and a new dawn follow. It may not be a better day, but it is different and I know I am also different. Growth happens during rest and I feel that I have more … Continue reading Dawn.
I've started paying attention to the Moon Phases in the past couple of years. It's amazing what a difference tracking the Moon makes when you look at cycles of energy expansion and contraction. The idea is that in the time between the New Moon and the Full Moon, energy expands as the Moon waxes, and … Continue reading The New Moon.
