Birthdays, Aging and This Amazing Thing Called Life…

“I don’t acknowledge age. I’m not afraid of what’s called age. The only thing that would ever frighten me would be losing my vitality or energy or the stars in my eyes or love for life. And I don’t believe that’s connected with numbers.” – Dyan Cannon   With my 33rd Birthday quickly approaching, I’ve been…

You and me.

I want to share a poem I wrote awhile back when I was going through a really hard time in my life. I was going through a devastating breakup with someone I  deeply loved and cared for. Someone who I spent 11 years of my life with. It had been about six months since we broke…

Wedding Singer

Last week I had the honor of singing at a good friend’s wedding down in Florida. It was an amazing experience and I am so grateful they wanted me to be a part of their special day. It was my first time singing and playing the ukulele in public. To say I was nervous would be…

I’m Alive

I have always loved singing . I have also always wanted to learn to play the ukulele. In September my dad gave me his ukulele and I immediately fell in love with it. Learning to play has been so calming and therapeutic for me. The first time I heard the song ‘Proof’ by Alex G it…

Being

What if we all focused more on being rather than having? Hmmm. This is thought that I have been pondering a lot lately. We so easily get swept up in our crazy thoughts, the latest drama, the news, our relationships, jobs, the stuff. We focus on getting here or there, on our faults, our diets,…

Going with My Gut

I recently began flirting with the idea of possibly buying property, most likely a condo or a townhouse. I’m tired of throwing my money away to rent and it is so frustrating that every year, for no reason that I can see or benefit from, the rent goes up and up and up. Also, I love…

My “Non-Negotiables”

You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresea, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.” –Life’s Little Instruction Book An assignment from my health coach was to come…
