It’s been hard to write in this space lately. If I’m honest, it’s been hard to write in general. I worked on a piece this week for my coaching site about moving through resistance in the creative process, something I’d been putting off doing for weeks. While I feel good about having accomplished that, the fact that it took me so long to write it speaks to how I’ve been struggling with my own resistance. Continue reading “Taking A Moment”
Some things have been heavy on my heart this week. Unresolved conflicts with friends. Not showing up the way I’d like in my business. Drinking a little too much rum. It seems like all these old regrets and mistakes are bubbling to the surface. Continue reading “Begin Again: On Self-Forgiveness”
Last Thursday I forgot to do my daily yoga practice. That’s kind of a big deal. For one, I had been doing yoga every day for over three hundred days, so I broke my streak. I can live with that, as I’m not in competition with myself. I know that one missed day doesn’t erase all the other days I’ve done it. Still, when I realized the next morning that I’d forgotten, it bothered me. It’s still bothering me. Continue reading “Un-Anchored: On Missing A Day Of Yoga”
Last week there was a hurricane here in Belize, which resulted in us being without electricity for three days. We were lucky in that we still had running water and no serious flooding on the farm, and there wasn’t much water damage to my belongings except for a few soggy books and journals. All things that can be replaced. Still, it was uncomfortable and exhausting, with hot and buggy nights, and spoiled food. Continue reading “Finding My Flow”
I’m in a reflective mood this week. It’s the start of a new month – my birthday month – and I’ll be turning 40 in a few weeks. I’m thinking a lot about what I want the theme for August to be and how I want to consciously enter this next decade of my life. There will be celebrations – my girls are coming down to Belize from the States to bring in my solar return with me. There will be revelry and shenanigans. I’m so looking forward to that.

Yeah, that. Continue reading “Simple Shit”
Monday. The start of a new week. I’m feeling optimistic about this one. How about y’all? Continue reading “Reset & A Self-Care Roundup”
Yesterday marked six months of daily yoga practice. In some ways it doesn’t feel that long, in others it feels longer. Like many things in life, I suppose.
The commitment to a daily practice started with my 30-day challenge, after which I just decided to keep going. I learned so much about myself during those 30 days. It was a really powerful gesture of self-love, which has been the biggest thing that keeps me showing up every day. Continue reading “Commitment & Compassion: Lessons From 180 Days Of Yoga”

I used to be a love poet.
For years I wrote and performed about love, on the blog I kept for seven years and in the one-woman show I created. Continue reading “Metta, Love & 90 Days Of Yoga”
