BYE, BYE PAST TRAUMA AND HURT! HERE COMES THE SUN...
If something really gnarly happens in your life and then you go seek help, in Western society many caretakers will tell you that you had some kind of “trauma”. And then boom, once you hear that, most people identify with it and then, in some cases, that trauma becomes their identity, not just an event that happened in their life. Let us review the definition of trauma from the good ole Merriam...
Wake Up Call... Again!!!
For months it seems like I’ve been begging the universe for more time, more energy, more space, more freedom… so on and so on. I remember telling my wonderful boyfriend, (who always tells me to relax and enjoy everything, to not worry, to let go, and whose advice I need to take more of), that the next time I would allow myself time to “do nothing” was when I literally could...

The Value of Change!
Um… read this at JUST the right moment in my life! Here’s a no-brainer: If something isn’t working, and it doesn’t look like it is going to improve, change it. Sometimes emotions make us say, “If I stop this, it means I failed,” preventing us from moving on in our evolutionary paths. But that’s an outdated concept. Change doesn’t mean failure. It’s OK to change – change your mind,...

How Can I Love Myself No Matter What?
Wow…this came up in a big way for me tonight. My dear friend and fellow TDL blogger Chris Assad has been in town for the past few days. He inspired me to do a vlog when he posted his about a month ago. I asked him if he would help me do one. That is the last thing I wanted to do. It honestly scares the crap out of me. Being seen, actually seen by people is a huge fear for me. I hoped that if...
It is so true… “You are the company you keep”. This is true even of the jobs you decide to take and the “mentalities” of the coworkers you surround yourself with.

Life has been quite the journey thus far. I’ve recently had the amazing opportunity and continue to have the opportunity to learn from some truly wonderful people. I’ve been learning that challenges often present us with great opportunity. At the age of 23, I’ve seemingly lost all sense of identity and purpose. I don’t know who I am. There is something that is quite terrifying when all of...

The Confines of Time
I often find myself saying things like… “I would enjoy myself more if I had more time.” Or, “I would take more time for myself if I had more time.” Or, “There’s just not enough time in the day to do everything.” The problem is that we, (myself included), are so confined by the concept of time. We fail to totally let go and enjoy ourselves in the...
