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. Guilty as charged. I know how difficult it can be to plan a vacation, find a sitter (if you only want a grown up vacation)…

Don’t

Time Energy Manpower Emotions Factors that are contributed to relationships, jobs, people and society itself. Factors that aren’t given can potentially cause a downfall. 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.

If you’re not familiar with that particular type of facial therapy, it’s a process that detoxes your lymphatic system through your face. While I was in my therapy session, she noticed that my sinus cavities in…

Vibes

Sometimes it’s hard to relinquish control and depend on other people, especially those you’re not personally in tune with. How are you supposed to trust or work with someone that…

Kid at Heart

Indulging in your inner child is healthy. It’s a common thing for when we become parents, we immediately have to grow up because we have to take care of another life. Which is how it should be. But, what if, from time to time, we put our adult selves in a time out? What if…

Socratic

How deep are we forcing ourselves to dig? As I was completing some assignments for this past week, the professor had us research ways we can get our future students to think deeper about solutions and conclusions to questions. Socratic questioning. If you’re not familiar with this type of questioning, it derives from the teaching of…
