Illness: A Blessing in Disguise?

In November of 2019, my body gave me lots of signs that I needed to pay attention to my health. I had two choices: succumb to fear and the very dark places your mind likes to go or realize…I have no information other than… Continue Reading “Illness: A Blessing in Disguise?”

Finding Ease When Things Get Difficult

Yet, again, I find myself taking a lesson from my yoga mat and applying it to the real world. In yoga, we refer to Sthira/Sukha. How strength and softness can exist simultaneously. You can feel both the hardness of a pose and you can… Continue Reading “Finding Ease When Things Get Difficult”

Saying Yes to My Goal

I’m happiest when I’m creating. The after part…editing, polishing, perfecting…that’s fun too because I’m making my story come alive for future readers. But, the business side? The blurb…oh goodness the blurb…the social media campaign…the learning of each and every platform… It has taken the… Continue Reading “Saying Yes to My Goal”

How to Choose What to do First?

I’ve entered a world I know nothing about. It completely brings to life what I learned in yoga teacher training not too long ago. There is so much I don’t know. And, although on some days that makes me want to throw my hands… Continue Reading “How to Choose What to do First?”

Calling Myself a Writer

I abandoned this blog for quite some time. I am a mother of two school-aged children, a wife, a high school teacher, and a woman on a journey of growth. Amidst the many areas which demand my time, I spent any free minute I… Continue Reading “Calling Myself a Writer”

Snail’s Pace #AmWriting #Publishing

Becoming a writer has been a life-long dream. And, the thing is, I am a writer. An unpublished writer. Ugh. I’ve blogged here and at Bookmarks. I’ve written short stories and a children’s novel. More recently, I followed my heart and wrote what I… Continue Reading “Snail’s Pace #AmWriting #Publishing”
