Practical Magic for Soul Liberation

I have a lot to say...

Sometimes it's serious, sometimes it's silly, but it's always the truth.

Mostly, I share my stories and the wisdom gained from my own journey, in hopes that it helps you on yours.

My Collection

In Brave Blogging, we were asked to write about something we collect.  My collection is a messy, crazy, jumble of stuff.....which actually, makes perfect sense when I think about it.

I collect light to draw on, when the darkness surrounds me.

I collect hugs from my son that make me feel like I am doing something right.

I collect smiles and kisses from my daughter that help me remember what’s important.

I collect frogs, because they keep me mindful of healing and sensitivity and remind me  that transformation is not always pretty or comfortable, but always worth it.

Today, I Feel Like A Failure

Today, I feel like a failure because I told my kid too much sugar isn't good for her.  Half an hour later, she was exercising in her room because she said she doesn’t like her body and that when she looks at all her friends, they’re skinnier than her.  She’s 8.  Only 8 dammit!  Even though I NEVER diet or talk about weight or calories or any of it.....she has clearly been influenced by the dark side, and I feel powerless.

Wash, Rinse, Repeat

In the Brave Blogging course I'm taking, with the amazing Andrea Scher, we're learning how to capture the small moments.  I'm realizing that there is so much meaning in the small, everyday moments.  A series of small moments all strung together, is what makes a life.  The little things definitely matter.
