In a hurry to go nowhere

Motion around me could easily create a distraction or even be perceived as a danger. Motion around me could be a sign that things are passing me by.

Or, motion could be a wonderful reminder to feel my own stillness, to watch without attachment, and not be in such a hurry to get somewhere.

I never thought of myself as adventurous…but then again when joy and goodness are in the driver’s seat, anything can happen…if you just let it.  Put the peddle to the metal.

Re-think…Re-see…Re-feel…the world around you.

Nothing is locked into its purpose, function, or place in your life.

Be Meek

Meek is not to be cowardly, rather it is gentle, patient, non-violent, and creates a soft space from which your power emerges in its most natural form – one of compassion, vision, abundance, and joy.  Be meek.

Burning Embers

Fire Within closeup

The embers of the fire need tending to keep them bright and strong, to share their light, to give off their warmth.  They are not intended to be smothered, but to be gently stoked and shared, to be given a safe space to fully express themselves. Nurture those burning embers and know the power and joy of that light within.

Every breath a new beginning

20151001_120510With each exhale, I let go with full gratitude. I empty spaces, create hollows and clear out the residue of all that has created and sustained me.

Then, with effortless ease, the inhale comes swirling in, creating the next new vibrant moment, filling the gaps and hollows, adding onto the full, rich, and vital being that is me.

And so it is that I welcome every exhale with delight, knowing that I am creating the very pathway for my next new beginning and welcome every new beginning as it rides in upon my next breath…again and again and again.

Every breath a new beginning.

Waves Come Crashing In


Sitting in stillness…waves come crashing in…loud, powerful, ferocious. Yet, in the stillness, I know only their beauty, their strength, and their humble gifts of positive change.

Whatever Floats Your Boat


When you remove the pit in the center and scoop up the pulp on a chip, you are left with a perfect little craft in which to float through your day, cradled and nourished in your own shell.

Float, bob,and sail on…
