I am a pocket-sized b-word, according to this online quiz I took once. I always worry if I’m a b-word. In truth, at various times in my life I’ve alternated between being a doormat and flaunting my Jersey-girl roots. (Jersey girls, if you don’t know, have a reputation for being a little, ahem, crazy.) Some […]Continue reading
Today is Valentine’s Day and maybe everyone wants a fairytale love story, but I think it’s more fun to go against the grain. Let’s talk about when spiritual growth changes relationships. It’s a really important topic. Personal growth leads to massive internal changes and it’s only natural that this spiritual growth changes relationships, too. […]Continue reading
It was a deep sleep. From Friday through Sunday afternoon, that’s all I did. Sunday night, the exhaustion lingered and I began to worry — am I dying? Images of the grim reaper filled my mind, but in my heart, I knew it was something much different. A lot of times when we […]Continue reading

In my life, I’ve found that fully accepting and honoring all the ways I feel has opened the door to more happiness, not less, because how well we show up […]Continue reading
All my life, I’d been given one diagnosis after another. Depression. Bi-polar. Dysthymia (persistently low mood). Therapist after therapist offering me a prescription pad, telling me my biology was bad, never asking me — do you want to learn how to love yourself? You’ve had some serious losses — have you grieved them? Are you eating […]Continue reading
For most of my life, I repressed every single emotion. I hadn’t then known about the power of meditation techniques for emotional healing, and even if I had, I wanted nothing to do with the emotional wounds swirling around inside of me. Society tells us only happiness is worthwhile, and that strong is stoic. In my […]Continue reading
The morning and I never bonded until recently. I mean, I love coffee and the soft early glow of the sun as much as the next person, but some people are just not meant to rise before 8 a.m. (or 9. ahem.)
