To Be Free

The time has come for a WordPress hiatus. I’ve felt it gnawing at me for a while, but this week it became crystal clear. I’m determined to keep the portions on my plate in balance, and there’s new opportunity just over the horizon. It’s been challenging to keep my plate clean, because I’m a doer, […]

A Level Life

You can smell the coffee. Not that it’s being made, but that so much has been ground and brewed, it lingers. The coffee bar is in the middle of the house, so you could say, it’s at our core. This morning as I was writing down my completed actions of the self trust cultivator, everything […]

Prioritize the Meaningful

I just logged off of work, to come over here, and finish this post. This is my happy place, but I tend to make work my first priority. I’m Finding That Balance, to prioritize the meaningful. Going through my archived posts, was one of the best things I’ve ever done. A year ago, I deleted […]

To Do Better

I’m still going through, cleaning my archives. I’ve gone through 2014, 2015, 2016 and am on March 2017. I’ll share some thoughts once I’m done, but my best advice for now is…Don’t wait six years. I took this meme out of an archived post to share with you. I went through a phase of using […]

I was thinking about her comment while making the morning Chemex. It was in response to this meme I posted for SC Lourie. She was having a hard time being a single Mom, but what stuck with me the most was, “I feel like I fail my children everyday.” I want her to know, that’s […]

My Front Yard

This is one of my favorite memes. Last year, I wrote about The Bird Feeder. I loved it, but spent a lot of time agonizing over the squirrels. They wouldn’t stay off the feeder and wound up destroying one of them. Fast forward to today, I feed the squirrels. I pour the feed right on […]

A Handwritten Note

I woke up this morning, took a glance at my phone and turned it off. Yesterday was not a pretty day at work, so this morning I took some time to manage my state. To let go of yesterday and stand firmly in today. I sat down and wrote the Morning Pages. I learned about […]

Wait For It

I forced myself to stop Blogging. When I challenged myself to post a Blog a day in December, over time I hit a stride. That groove of posting everyday became a daily ritual, but was it fulfilling? On into January, I was still posting everyday, but began to slow the pace. After posting The Mindless […]

The Mindless Activity

The best ideas occur while showering. They used to form while vacuuming, but this house doesn’t have any carpet, so the vacuum isn’t used often. While washing dishes is another good mindless activity. These are things we do without thinking. They don’t take concentration, so the mind has room for an idea to surface. In […]
