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”

Earth Day Poem

In my yoga classes this week, I read a poem by Stephanie Kaza, (writer, practicing Soto Zen Buddhist, and active proponent of religious dialogue. @https://www.stephaniekaza.com/) This beautiful poem resonated me, not only for Earth Day, but as a way to honor our body and all it does as we move through our lives on theContinue reading “Earth Day Poem”

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”

It’s Been A Year

*Photo from Seattle Art Museum last March, I don’t know the artist but I love the colors, the images and the peacefulness of this piece. In early March of last year, I decided I was going to do more. I was going to get out more, explore more, find things to do on my own,Continue reading “It’s Been A Year”

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”
