Do less.

My overarching theme for 2020 is to do less. Marie Forleo says: This means less service for others, less time on social media, less planning, less commitment. Last year I discovered the Enneagram, and after reading through the various personality types, and then spending $12 to take the official test, I discovered that I am…

2020 Core Desired Feelings

It’s been a month of intense and thoughtful reflection. From Marie Forleo’s Decade in Review to Danielle LaPorte’s Desire Mapping, this month I revisited my 24-year-old self, and all the selves between her and the 34-year old me today.

The official start to the holiday season! This time of year can bring so much excitement, joy and anticipation to our hearts. I love being a mama during the holiday season….

Waking up.

My parents were the first to introduce me to the idea of ‘consciousness’ but it’s taken a long time to begin to understand it.
