Here in Middle Tennessee—and across much of the U.S.—we're in the midst of a powerful winter storm. In fact, it's so unusual and extreme that some parts of the country have received winter storm warnings for the first time. (Hello, parts of Texas!) Moments like this get our attention—we have no choice but to stop… Continue reading How Are You Being?
As Valentine's Day approaches, many of us are making romantic plans with our significant others. Some of us may be making plans with friends, whether socially-distanced-in-person get-togethers or virtual hangouts dancing across the interweb airwaves. Whatever the scenario, love is front and center in our minds. More specifically, relationships are at the forefront. We are… Continue reading Table for One
Yesterday marked the midway point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox here in the Northern Hemisphere. Nature's heartbeat grows louder and we can feel the thrumming of life just beneath the winter's surface. Soon tiny buds and green shoots will emerge. Daffodils and crocuses will lift their heads to the sun. During the… Continue reading What Seeds Do You Want to Plant?
Sometimes you have to change the energy. Feeling stagnant? Spinning your wheels? Go for a walk. Sit in a different spot. If you're working from home you could even try sitting on the floor (which is where I'm sitting right now as I write this) because why not?

We're good at getting things done. Checking off boxes. Meeting or exceeding expectations. Making sure we get our heart… Continue reading Are You Having Fun Yet?
My husband and I sit among the tall oak trees under a bright full moon. The campfire crackles in the crisp, cool air of late October. Fading fall leaves rustle as a light breeze blows. Shadows cast by the firelight dance all around us. I stare into the flames, mesmerized, relaxing in my chair. We… Continue reading The Campfire
So often we hear about avoiding procrastination and the importance of "getting things done." Believe me, I love getting things done! I love checking things off my to-do list. I get antsy if I feel like I'm not accomplishing my goals for the day or if I have strayed from my routine. I often ask… Continue reading Sometimes You Need Someday
"The wound is the place where the Light enters you." — Rumi We all want to be loved. We want to belong and we want to be special. We ache for connection. Yet, sometimes the heart grows hard to protect itself. We build walls around ourselves to stay "safe," isolating ourselves in an attempt to… Continue reading Bring Your Magic to the World
We've been living in the "Twilight Zone" for about two months now. I think most of us understand that we're not going back to the way things were. This is unprecedented, uncharted territory. What will you take with you and what will you leave behind? What do you want the new world to look like?… Continue reading What Comes Next?
