For deeper wellness

How I’ve radically simplified my life in the last year.

How I’ve radically simplified my life in the last year.

The practice of simplifying has consumed me in the best way possible. I’ve simplified every area of my life. It’s become a magnetic pull in my cells. The only other times I felt such a strong yearning were when I felt it was time to make a baby (let’s go!). And when I knew I wanted to commit to my current partner (all in, my Love!). Very. Deep. Callings. Biggest learning? Like birth and being in love…

Simplifying is the rapture that comes after the complexity you wish you’d avoided.

Self respect is a spiritual practice.

Self respect is a spiritual practice.

We fight for causes, for relationships, for our children, for our co-workers… but it can be terrifying to fight for ourselves. This is where sisterhood is particularly powerful. When our girlfriends see us over-extending, and they look us in the eye and say, “Stop. You don’t need to do this.”

The Stone-Hearted. The Half-Hearted. And the Full-Hearted.

The Stone-Hearted. The Half-Hearted. And the Full-Hearted.

The Full-Hearteds will be called crazy, idealistic, rebellious, too soft, too New Age, irrational, impractical, so angry, disloyal, righteous, moralistic, idealistic, unrealistic, unreasonable… and (gasp!)… utopian. It won’t be the first time, it will not be the last. That’s more than alright. This moment was made for the Full-Hearteds to let love rule. We see the beautiful ideal and we know that we’re all a part of its unfolding.

The Initiated Woman

The Initiated Woman

The Initiated Woman has bled. She’s bled from blind decisions that sliced her esteem; she’s bled from unguarded boundaries being obliterated; and she’s bled willingly, with love, because that’s what you do when people you adore are anemic or they’ve been punctured by life—you give them some of your blood. Here, I have lots, it’s fresh and warm. I’ll make more.

“You know what’s going to come of this moment in history?” asked Lauryn Hill. What?! Injustice, division, collusion?

“Beautiful art,” she said. “It’s happened before, and it will happen again. People’re going to make things. Artists make art from struggle.”

Her gift to everyone that night was firm Faith.

She alchemized fear into a higher vision. Like artists do.
