The Universe in Ecstatic Motion

So I’m watching “The Princess Diaries” the other night and the scene where Julie Andrews’ character, Queen Clarisse Renald, tells Anne Hathaway’s character, Mia, that she is royalty comes on. Now most people would be ecstatic about finding out that they’ve been royalty their whole life. They would jump at the chance to know that…

Have Yourself A Merry Little…

So Thanksgiving is upon us which means, Christmas is right around the corner. Yes I know no one wants to think about that. It’s a slight reminder of how fast the year went by. However, I love Christmas. It truly is the time of year where you look back and reflect. The time where our…

Element of Speech

As a human being, certain words and/or phrases just need to be in our vocabulary: I can. I will. Hustle. Work hard. Grind. Compassion. Yes. Together. Team. And most importantly, Love. I know there are other great, motivational words and phrases floating around in everyday conversations but this is what was at the top of…

Keep Your Cape On

It’s always funny to me (in a good way) when someone refers to me as a “Super Mom” because I’m literally just doing what I’m supposed to, want to, and have to do in order for my children to thrive. I don’t see myself as super. But maybe that’s the issue. The days go by…

R & R

I’ve come across stories and personal conversations with other parents, especially moms, who desire rest and relaxation but always end up feeling guilty just thinking about getting some me time.

But what do you do when you’ve given all four of these aspects with nothing in return? Detach. Detach yourself from the un-reciprocal. Tell yourself: I just don’t feel like it….

Plot Twist

Sometimes we don’t start the new year off strong or the way we hoped. And sometimes we think that’s a precursor into how our whole year is going to be. But it’s not. It doesn’t have to be January 1st in order for you to start over. Everyday is a new chance and opportunity to…

Unalterable

“You have seen my descent. Now watch my rising” -Rumi When coal gets pressurized it turns into a diamond. And a diamond is one of the most beautiful and significant stones in the world. So shouldn’t we be looking at ourselves as gems when we survive a pressurized situation? So often we forget how strong…

Content

What a week it has been!! Positive changes left and right!! How many of you have seen positive aspects of your life manifest right in front you? Did you think you would ever see those things you prayed and wished for come to fruition? Unfortunately we as humans have a tendency to either settle or…

Courage Under Fire

It’s funny how you can become inspired by the smallest thing. Last week the children in my family (mine, nieces and nephews) put on a talent show for all of the grown ups. It was awesome. There was singing, dancing, and instrument playing. Those kids are talented. As it was time for my 9 year…
