The Day Has Come

I never wanted this day to come. I loved living in the camper and innocently I thought we could hold on to it for many years to come. But we never wanted it to be the rotted out camper that goes out to pasture, and as we noticed small issues here and there, we knewContinue reading “The Day Has Come”

What Do You Love About Yourself?

Last week, I had a lovely mid week get away, with fully vaccinated friends. We talked, we laughed, we walked, we did yoga, I twisted my ankle, we ate lots of food and enjoyed each other’s company in a super beautiful and relaxing setting. When you are able to hang out uninterrupted with your bestContinue reading “What Do You Love About Yourself?”

Patience

The theme for my yoga class this week was patience. The definition of patience is: “The capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset.” This idea is something that I feel like has transformed over the past year and a half. When we started the pandemic we needed toContinue reading “Patience”

Take A Moment…

There is a lot of talk about mindfulness and meditation these days. An opportunity to connect and recenter. But mindfulness doesn’t always have to mean a silent retreat and you don’t always have to meditate on a cushion in your private yoga sanctuary. While these might be wonderful ways to get away, they are notContinue reading “Take A Moment…”

A Day Away

A day away from the city Early morning ferry ride Open the gate to the farm School is in session I am on my way Travel the curvy road Fields and farms on either side Dead end to the trail head Steep hill leads us down Grassy knolls and trees around Through the shrubs weContinue reading “A Day Away”

Last Time

For me, one of the silver linings of the pandemic has been joining my writing groups. I have taken a number of classes with Hugo House and have formed friendships and groups with people I have never met in person, yet I tell them everything about my life. In our group this weekend, we wereContinue reading “Last Time”

Coming Home

Moving, organizing, getting settled. I took a break from the blog last week because I was bit overwhelmed, now I am feeling a bit more grounded in my space. For me it felt like home since the moment we walked in. The laundry is loud, the space is small, there is barely any storage, butContinue reading “Coming Home”

Showing Up

*Coloring by me. From my Mindfulness Coloring Book. Sometimes it’s important to stop and just color. I couldn’t sleep, so I woke up early. My back aching and my mind racing. I did a longer than normal meditation, which was nice. Anyone that has ever moved or been in the middle of a transition, reallyContinue reading “Showing Up”

Trust Yourself

*photo credit Andrew – These girls are my world, if I can teach them anything it is to trust themselves. At the beginning of quarantine we were stuck inside baking, filling time with snacks and drinking wine every night to cope. I was stressed, anxious and on edge about the virus, my family’s health, aboutContinue reading “Trust Yourself”

For All That We Love

We love them from the moment they come into the world. We love them until they take their last breath. We love them through struggle and conflict. We love them when it hurts. We give them all our love and ask for nothing in return. The love that we have for ourselves is often overlooked,Continue reading “For All That We Love”
