Getting Used to Change

Getting Used to Change

In my life, I regularly plan for the time when life slows down. Or at least is more predictable with less unknowns. I don’t know why I do this, because I am regularly taken off-guard by unknowns and change. Does this happen to you? This time of my life is no different.  (more…)

JOMO: The Joy of Missing Out

JOMO: The Joy of Missing Out

I read an article recently in the New York Times  that really resonated with me and I wanted to share it with you. I would love to get some feed back about how you approach this idea. The article was about JOMO, which the author explains is the “joy of missing out.” It is the antithesis to FOMO, or the “fear of missing out.”

Is This Thing On?

I’ve been having an experience lately where I feel that I am second guessed more often than usual.

Mother Nature

Mother Nature

Every year as Spring rolls around, I feel the calming pull to be outside. I love the sun on my face and how being outside feels natural and connecting. It feels like a healthy reminder that I am part of a bigger picture, a great big world that needs me and I need it. I get excited to see new growth all around me and to see how seasons continue to change and offer a new perspective. Being in nature feels like a chance for self-care, and so I want to explore some of the ways we can work with nature to feel closer to our true selves.  (more…)
