It usually happens when I declare I am going to learn something new.  Like right now, I am learning how to film and edit with Adobe Premiere Pro. Hours can go by and I don’t even know what happened. I am so involved in the process. Struggling through learning something new on After Effects, I look up and it’s 11 pm. My Fitbit app telling me it’s time to get some rest.  I like this […]

If I dig deep enough – all the way to the very core of my inquiry, a big part of my quest is about making sense of it all. Searching for the answers I seek, I have a difficult time understanding that not everything in life is logical.  Most of it is a mystery and yes, it is with a great sense of gratitude that I respect that there are miracles happening every single moment […]

Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what’s next or how. The moment you know how, you begin to die a little. The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.   – Agnes de Mille. I have always felt very uncomfortable the moment I began to feel even slightly comfortable.  Some of my dearest friends have called me out on this. […]

It’s pretty damn simple really. It all boils down to how we experience our lives. How alive we are in the moment. How we show up. How we experience life depends on how conscious we truly are.   The question is, how deeply awake we are as we experience our life. If we were radically honest with ourselves and woke up enough to notice, we’d admit that the majority of us are just sleepwalking children. Everything we […]

A few months ago I began stripping away all that no longer serves me in my life. What is that suppose to mean? Without boundaries, I let way too much in and life got way too crazy. I was tired, pulled in a million directions and honestly, I allowed it. Frankly, I didn’t know how to say no. I said yes to everything and everyone. It’s not a good idea. Well sometimes, in the beginning saying […]

The best gift you can give anyone is your full and true presence. Distractions are everywhere, and who has the time for anyone, really? I resolve from this moment forward to make more time for truer communication with those I love. This is what makes life more memorable. Generous Listening Inspired by Becoming Wise I’m thinking about how important it is to listen generously. How to compassionately communicate and hear another’s soul, even through the most […]

This post ponders the idea of turning sour feelings. a.k.a. – a shitty state-of-mind – – into persevering resoluteness. I am thinking about the alchemy of emotions. Turning fear into fascination; frustration into fortitude, pain into power and anxiety into assurance. It’s about turning my life around. Drilling deep into my psyche to pull through life with courage and conviction. What I believe to be True When we do things thoughtfully we have a better chance at […]
