Connecting Mind to Heart

Recently in our chat Good Sh*t Happens we spoke about keeping your head up and seeing the positive within the negative.  Today I thought we could chat about how to heck to do that when your mind is saying “be afraid, be very very afraid.”  You could be having these thoughts about the current state of…

Good Sh*t Happens

Vulnerability…that evil word.

Vulnerability has been on my mind lately. This summer I went through something that brought this right up into my face for me to see the light of the dark. It is no surprise to me (as this tends to be my MO) I got very sick after the fall out of it all. As…

In Transition

Transitions are often times the hardest; in between what was and what will be. The in between is often known to be the place where beauty resides whilst the pain of not knowing where the future will take you. This is the place I have been lately. In between. In fact this has been a…
