My New Place

My New Place

When I first moved into my new place I was sitting on the floor on pillows where my couch was supposed to be, looking around my living room at the small amount of furniture I had and I started to envision what I wanted this room to be for me.

I visualized this desk. This simple desk carefully placed under this big window. This desk is where I would write all of my stories. This chapter was about to be the best one yet and this space would be the perfect setting for it to all unfold. Continue reading “My New Place”

Connection Doesn’t Know Time

Connection Doesn’t Know Time

Connection doesn’t know time.

Experience doesn’t recognize time. Your soul doesn’t care about time. It connects when it’s meant to connect. It loves when it’s meant to love. It draws you to an experience because it needs it.

Your soul knows what you need better than you ever will. Trust in that.

Don’t let time or lack thereof allow you to belittle a feeling, a connection, or an experience. Don’t underestimate the impact that one single moment can have on you. Continue reading “Connection Doesn’t Know Time”

Patterns

Patterns

Patterns. They’re a tricky thing…Something we do each time a certain situation presents itself in our lives. Something that is our “normal” reaction. But not like shivering when you’re cold kind of reaction, like drastic, sometimes life altering reactions that we make subconsciously to either shield ourselves from something or make us feel safe again.

Lately, I’ve been experiencing a lot of new things. Well, finding myself in positions I haven’t found myself in many years.

So currently when I’ve found myself standing in these sort of “uncharted territories”, I’ve taken this as an opportunity to look around and see what my natural reaction is (or what I would have done 10 years ago when I was in this spot) and then dissect WHY that is my reaction or where my subconscious naturally takes me.

Look into your Eyes

Look into your Eyes

When was the last time you looked into your own eyes?
Like really LOOKED….

We spend so much time looking outward for answers, looking around us for the solution. When the solution is inside of you.

Looking yourself in the mirror isn’t always fun. I mean stripping down the layers, the stories, the masks, and looking deep into your own eyes, into your own soul and seeing who you REALLY are at your core.

Are you letting that core shine through? Continue reading “Look into your Eyes”

Story Time

Story Time

He cornered me in the shop. Everyone else was going inside to go to bed; the party was over, it was after 2 am. He had barely spoken two words to me the whole night, a man that I used to believe wholeheartedly was mine forever. And he cornered me saying, “I need you to answer these questions.”

I was taken back by this. I remember thinking… REALLY? We’ve been going back and forth about this for 7 years now, and we need to talk about it AGAIN? You still have questions?! Continue reading “Story Time”

Live Life On Purpose

Live Life On Purpose

Do you remember that scene in Sweet Home Alabama where Reese Witherspoon’s character is sitting in the coon dog cemetery and she looks up at Jake and tells him how she loves her life in New York but then she goes back to her home town and that just fits too?

Well that’s how I feel.

That’s how I’ve always felt. Continue reading “Live Life On Purpose”

Be The Change

Be The Change

A mother gets abused, her daughter sees it, she grows up to think that it’s okay…thinking that behavior is okay. She swears she’ll never be treated that way but then she does. She gets stuck in a situation and she’s abused. She’s reliving her moms “mistakes”. The cycle continues…

Right? Or at least that’s what we’ve always been told. Continue reading “Be The Change”
