Journey Back to Power – Day 10

Yesterday I posted a graphic on my Facebook page…. “I desire to dance, and romance, and find love… perchance.” There was a comment suggesting, “First you have to find love in yourself.” Hmmm… this is a topic of discussion I could really dive into. First off- I think of myself as a person with a

Journey Back to Power – Day 9

Today is the first morning of my week back with my kiddos and the last week before school starts. As I usually do on these summer week days, I spent the early morning hours multi-tasking. I was watching stock charts, making the occasional stock trade, cooking bacon and bagels, reading game instructions for Netherlee, and

Journey Back to Power – Day 8

Sometimes the most powerful thing to do is to take a break. Self care goes a LONG ways. Yesterday I woke up WORN OUT! Showing up here on the blog consistently this month for this Journey Back to Power challenge is important to me. Honestly, though, I was feeling uninspired, emotional, and like rest was

Journey Back to Power – Day 7

How do you push your edges?? Doing something I never imagined I could/would do makes me feel extremely powerful. It reminds me that there’s a world of possibility out there. That I need only expand my imagination to make something a reality. I always like to envision a sheet of bread dough being rolled out

Journey Back to Power – Day 6

What does it mean to fully own and embody your power? There seems to be lots of different ways that walking as a powerful person can show up. From taking action towards creating your desired dreams, to learning to draw clean and clear boundaries. Last night I had an opportunity to fully own and embody

Journey Back to Power – Day 5

Yesterday I spoke about the importance of acknowledging where our attention has been so we can direct it towards the things that we’d like to be cultivating in our lives. One of the community members commented on that post, and mentioned how important it is not just to redirect our focus, but also to acknowledge

Journey Back to Power – Day 4

What do you give your power away to?? I’m gonna be honest here. I’m guilty of sometimes willingly giving my power away to something or someone else. There are often things that I know would nourish and support me if I took action…. yet I choose something far less supportive in a moment of exhaustion

Journey Back to Power – Day 3

When we’re traveling our days with the intention of moving in a powerful, creative way, it’s important to get started on the right foot. After all, the saying, “You woke up on the wrong side of the bed” certainly didn’t come from nowhere. The way we start our day tends to carry with us. Leave

Journey Back to Power – Day 2

I was watching a video recently which spoke about “incompletes.” It mentioned that anytime we have something we’ve been meaning to do, but haven’t yet, that this unfinished to-do list item pulls on our energy. For instance, the pile of dirty laundry on the chair in my bedroom pulls on my energy just a little

Journey Back to Power – Day 1

Over the past couple of years, I have been through some epic transformation. Just as the butterfly goes into the cocoon and completely liquefies before re-emerging as the new self, I’ve been stripping away many layers of my “perceived” self in service of finding the real me buried somewhere underneath. Lately, I’ve felt just like

Lessons and Lilies

This morning, a beautiful orange lily bloomed outside my front door. As I admired the first of many blooms soon to come, I marveled at the way life channels us into certain places at certain times.  Lilies have been rather sacred to me throughout my healing journey over the past couple years.  So of course,

I don’t know

I don’t know what I don’t know yet. Recently, I was road tripping with my daughter and she wanted to listen to the Frozen soundtracks over and over again.  I’m the type of person who listens to every little word of songs, so I especially enjoyed Olaf’s “When I Am Older.” The song states, “This

The Third Child

The first child has no example to follow, and thus feels more limited.  He does not have any idea where his boundaries start and end, and he aims small (out of fear?  Or just not knowing?) and thus learns slower and pushes limits slower.  The second child see the first and feels less limited so

Limitless Dreams

What a curiously delightful, strangely surreal, absurdly abundant landscape of ethereal dreams we’re living in.  Each dreamer lost in his own dimension and each dream as limitless toward terror or beauty as the dreamer dare venture. ~~~ “As limitless toward terror or beauty as the dreamer dare venture” This feels like an important and illuminating
