Recalibrate and DEFINE a new normal.

*I’ve been writing whilst off-grid. Amature move is putting the words in an email rather than a word document. Autosave apparently didn’t work. It’s a shame as I had some pretty good flows. Keeping tabs on my emotional processing as I move through this road trip has been a priority. The Universe obviously wants toContinue reading “Recalibrate and DEFINE a new normal.”

The sky is the limit on comments that slide into myContinue reading “5 Principles for Self-Care”

Self-discipline is self-love

“Self-discipline is self-love.” My mornings are sacred. I spend time welcoming the sun, writing some words, making a phenomenal breakfast… or just allowing myself space to dance around my head (a majority of my day is dancing in my heart so time to dance in my head is quite special. I’m spending a week withContinue reading “Self-discipline is self-love”

Self-Care leads to Universal​ Magic

The more time I spend taking care of myself, the more miracles that start to present themselves. Today is Monday. It’s my day to flop around. My self-care day.

Making amends with myself

Dear Jess, It’s been a long minute but I need to share something. I’m sorry. I’m sorry for putting others before you for so long.

And more importantly, whatContinue reading “Healthy Boundaries IS Self Care”

It’s time to stop running & start planting roots

I’ve been thinking of ways to acknowledge this season of healing and celebrate my existence.

Every once in a while, I connect with a pure soul. Lumpy bits but pure in every single capacity. The pureness is with the looks, the grabs, the intended and the unintended moments.

My higher self is my best friend

I’m not even going to pretend. Most of my life is in autopilot. This has served me well because I cannot remember the last time that I was in normal situations. When greeted with dysfunction, I tighten my ponytail, smile, and navigate the sea like a 70+-year-old sailor. It’s NOT my first rodeo and IContinue reading “My higher self is my best friend”
