Violets – Weeds or Wellness?

  • by

I had a self-employment side gig one time helping a friend with some gardening.  Simple stuff – put some new plants in and pull some weeds out.  One thing that frustrated her were the number of “weeds” that seemed to be competing with her for property ownership.  Tiny purple flowers on shepherd’s hook-like stems scattered themselves throughout her garden beds and crept their way into her lawn.  They were Violets, and to my friend, they were the enemy and need to be yanked out & disposed of. Looking back, oh… Read More »Violets – Weeds or Wellness?

  • by

When was the last time you spent a night with friends to blow off steam and exchanged cocktails & complaining for mocktails & me time?

Releasing The Old & Finding The New With Firewalking

  • by

In November 2017,  I had the opportunity to participate in a Firewalking ceremony.  I was afraid, intimidated and not quite certain why I was there.  In October that year, I created & started The ‘Me Project’ – 30 Days of Getting My Sh*t Together (see our ‘Me Project’ page) to get my life back on track through my self and soul care.  I was seeking opportunities to feed my mind, body & soul when a Firewalk came across my FB feed through a friend.  After much deliberation, at the last… Read More »Releasing The Old & Finding The New With Firewalking

Have you experienced true, full-bodied joy?

  • by

JOY. What exactly is joy? How do you define it? How does it make you feel? The Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) describes joy to their students as “a deep experience of inner peace and happiness that aligns deeply with our core values + internal truth.” Would you agree or are you thinking, “What in the hey does that mean?” It means that joy comes from your internal feelings of being + purpose. We equate it to be the difference between, say, spending the day laughing with your best friend or playing with a… Read More »Have you experienced true, full-bodied joy?

Are You Being True to Yourself? Listen.

  • by

Are you being true to yourself? ???? LISTEN. ✨ That was the biggest lesson that I learned during my Firewalk this time around. Listen. ✨ I walked but, right before my foot hit the ground, I knew that I had made a mistake & I wasn’t actually ready. And I got burned. ???? ✨ Not a big burn but, a burn impactful enough to make me pay attention & realize my lesson was LISTEN. And it’s not easy to admit that because people don’t want to hear that you got burned during what is supposed… Read More »Are You Being True to Yourself? Listen.
