  • My No TV Experiment as Inspired by The Great Jane Goodall

    three boys in front of a screen

    Spring is my favorite time of year. In Texas, starting in April, the temperatures begin to reach that perfect level where you’re not too hot and you’re not too cold. The live oak trees drop all of last year’s leaves and at the same time they shed a green pollen that coats all the cars, sidewalks, and patios. New leaves burst forth, and the tree explodes in green. 

    There’s a beautiful creek that winds itself ...

  • Wise and Soulful Use of Quarantine

    It's been almost a month now since I started to self-isolate. I go to work and, if I absolutely must, I'll go to the grocery store. I’m feeling the ache and pain of being alone. The time I would normally spend with others is spent completely isolated from the rest of the world. It’s challenging me to really dig deep within myself to uncover a sweet relationship with who I am at my core.

  • Intense Times: A Call to Return to Soul

    Last week was intense. I haven't felt pulled off track like that in a long time. My partner of eight years moved out on Sunday. And the pandemic intensified tenfold.

    An Unfortunate Rendezvous with Old Habits

    My regular spiritual and self-care practices started to slip the week before. The difficulties of ending a longterm partnership had me reaching for some liquid relaxation again; something I had stopped doing for several ...

    And, we’re off! I’m well on my way to a decluttered home and a simpler life. I started to declutter before I even knew what I was doing. Who knew there was actually a method to decluttering? Well, there is. It’s called the KonMarie Method, developed by Marie Kondo. She wrote the book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing

  • Your Body as the Starting Place for Connection with the Divine Feminine

    divine feminine

    I’m sitting on my balcony tuning into my body and listening to what desires to be expressed in this moment. I have my right hand on my chest bone, over my heart, and my left hand on my belly just below my belly button. I can feel the warmth circulating between the two points.

    This has been a go-to practice for me off and on throughout my personal journey. It’s my way of sinking into my body, becoming ...

  • Recipe: Chocolate Banana Blueberry Smoothie

    I love smoothies! I started drinking smoothies two years ago, and I've never looked back. My smoothies are the healthy kind (not the kind loaded with sugar and juice). I drink them for breakfast paired with a sprouted grain toast with non-dairy butter, almond butter, or peanut butter. Or, I drink them post-workout since they have a scoop of protein.

    My first smoothies were filled with veggies and fruits and super chunky! They were brown, green, puprle, and all shades in between.

  • Why I Want to Move to California

    Imagine. Waking up to the bright blue and white light of the morning sun peaking in through your bedroom window on a Saturday morning. You stretch your arms above your head, rub the crusties from your eyes and gaze about the room in wonder of this beautiful light.

    You're inspired by the light to smile, sit up, and get ready for the day. A full day of adventure lay ahead of you. Not any ordinary adventure but the kind that leads you ...
