I already know that some people will take this the wrong way. Reading back over this, there are times in my life when I would have taken it the wrong way. There are probably times yesterday when I would have taken this the wrong way. There are times tomorrow, next week, next month, and next … Continue reading Superiority
We are still in the fist part of the year. That's not a typo. I meant, "fist," not, "first." We are assaulted by the new year and with all its expectations, resolutions, and wintery mixes. Then we navigate the hypermanic and bipolar episodes of weather (sunny and 50 one day followed by a rainy 38) … Continue reading Self Care?
As usual, it likely depends. In the past few years, I found that I'm often worried if people are mad at me. I worry and worry and worry about it. Until the next time I see the person and they don't seem mad (or they are acting like they aren't mad) and then all that … Continue reading Are you mad at me? Should it matter to me?
It's really easy to tell myself to learn from my mistakes. But then I actually have to go and do it. I have to remember that everything from last year did not serve me or others well (somethings did, so I'll keep those). Everything from last year did not raise the vibration of myself... or my community. … Continue reading Remember

Respect yourself enough to say, "I deserve peace," and walk away from people or things that prevent you from attaining it. -Jerico Silvers For me, the week between Christmas and the start of the New Year is always a good time to reflect, acknowledge, analyze, accept, and/or release. What has served me well this year? … Continue reading Reflect and Release
Whhhhewwwww I don't even know where to start. The beginning? Ok. Last night, I get a note (text) from Jodie. I love whenever she texts me. She's pretty much the best ever. Long story short here, after some back and forth and up and down, I volunteered to pick up an abandoned charity race bib … Continue reading Thirty Days of Thankful 3.0… Day 15
This is what curing cancer looks like: Today, I'm thankful for all the individuals who made this possible: Emily Whitehead Foundation Believe Ball Donate
Kid President's suggestions are AWESOME: Don't be in a party. Be a party. Click. Click. Click. A short, sharp sound. Clique. Clique. Clique. Small, exclusive group of people. Party. A detachment, squad, or detail; a social gathering. Strive to be a party rather than be in a party. I've been in a clique and out of … Continue reading Guide to Awesome… Day 57
These pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them. Rumi No matter how much money you make or where you live or how easy/hard your life has been, we all live in same broken world.

Feel the fear and do it anyway. Susan Jeffers What does that mean? Some of us understand this to mean to throw away the fear and push on. I always understood this as an opportunity to understand my fear. Study where it comes from. Study what makes it stronger and what weakens its hold over … Continue reading Fear?
We live in a world that can make our days feel disorienting, dark, sensory-overloading, erratic, and unstable. These days can make it extremely difficulty to find a mindful intention for that day from within. On days like these, I totally call it in. I don't try to force an intention. I've found that on days … Continue reading Tough to find…
Sometimes, mindful living is in the details. Today I offer that you can be mindful in a moment and immediately after, forget that mindfulness. Sure enough, though, when you least expect it, a spark of inspiration can remind you of those long-lost mindful moments and encourage you to do what you can to increase their frequency. Have … Continue reading Attention to detail…
There is hope after despair and many suns after darkness. Rumi This can be a tough time. It's a challenge to remember that every single day is a brand new, fresh and clean, first day. Mindful intentions and inspirations can help remind us. It's ok to get down. It's ok to feel paralyzed by whatever darkness … Continue reading Intention to…

On the fifth new day, we find a new (or renewed) ability to be inspired. We can find inspiration to get out of bed or go for that new job. Inspiration that can propel us away from anger and toward joy. Inspiration that can lead us to bloom where we are planted and find the … Continue reading The fifth day of new…
On the fourth day of the new year... it was another first day. Today was the first Wednesday of 2017. We're about half way through the FIRST week of the new year.

Today, I'm just thankful for this beautiful season of change. Just. Why just? What makes me, and perhaps us, reduce, minimize, or simplify with, "just?" How can I take it out? Today, I'm entirely, whole-heartedly, joyously, and excitedly thankful for this amazingly vibrant luscious and forgiving season. Photo: pajerunner
Today I am thankful for inspiration. What inspires you? What does it inspire you to do? To be? To make? To change? Why? How does this action make you different? How does it make other's different? How can you make this inspiration last longer? What will inspire you next? How can you inspire others? Do … Continue reading Thirty Days of Thankful 11.4.16
