It is Safe to Feel

As a human we experience an intense variety of emotions every day, and whether we want to do not, we have to deal with all of the highs and lows of life. While this can be joyful and beautiful, it can also be heartbreaking and exhausting. Especially if you are highly sensitive person like me. I feel it all and I feel it all very intensely.

The Choice is Yours

“You can count your days or make your days count for something. The choice is yours. ” –  Louise Caiola


Waking up on the right side of the bed everyday is a choice.

Living life the fullest and enjoying every breath you take is a choice.

Allowing yourself to be here in the present moment is a choice.

 Loving yourself and those around you is a choice.

Being generous and giving back is a choice.

Being happy is a choice.

Treating yourself and your loved ones with respect is a choice.

 Being grateful for everything you have is a choice.

Appreciating the beauty of the world around you is a choice.

 Dealing with your problems, instead of running away form them, is a choice.

Being honest with yourself is a choice.

Feeling your feelings is a choice.

Surrounding yourself with people who only lift you higher is a choice.

Eating right and taking care of your mind, body and soul is a choice.

Following your passions is a choice.

Doing what makes your soul shine is a choice.

Saying yes (or no) to whoever or whatever is a choice.

Making your wants and needs known is a choice.

Letting go of anything (or anyone) that’s no longer serving you is a choice.

Doing your best and giving your all, in everything you do, is a choice.

Doing what you need to do for you is a choice.

In every single moment of your life you have a choice.

Creating the life we want for ourselves is completely up to us and our choices. The choices we make on a day to day, moment to moment basis.

Everyday. Every breath. Every moment.

I think that is amazing.



Recreate Your Life Story

One of my blog posts was selected to be a part of the curriculum for the first ever Tiny Buddha e-course called “Recreate Your Life Story: Change the Script and Be the Hero”. I couldn’t be more honored or excited to be a part of this amazing opportunity! I have been following the Tiny Buddha blog for years now. I thought being a guest blogger on the site was exciting, but this is just a dream come true.

This e-course is amazing and I encourage you to check it out and give it some serious thought. You will not regret it! Lori Deschene, the founder of Tiny Buddha and the woman running this course, is such an inspiration.

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 the idea of having a place that is truly my own. Everyone in my life seemed to be on board and think this idea was worth exploring. That made me even more excited!

Be Still

“Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat any time and be yourself.”  – Hermann Hesse

“It is the stillness that will save and transform the world.” – Eckhart Tolle

I came across this amazing gem of a poem today and wanted to share it with all of you! Love, love, love this. Just reminds me how important taking time everyday to be still is. It really will change your life! After yoga class this morning I was talking to my friend about how I need to make time to be still more often. Without that stillness, my mind becomes chaotic and my life, attitude and actions become a direct reflection of that. My timing for discovering this poem couldn’t have been more perfect. It amazes me how the universe works sometimes.


“12 Gifts of Stillness” by Goli Gabbay Kafka

In stillness, we can break away from the inundation of information entering our mind, and make space for our own unique creativity to spark.

In stillness, we create the space to access our inner calm.

In stillness, we can listen to our inner guidance system.

In stillness, we have those “aha” moments, moments of full presence and connection to all life.

In stillness, we can feel how deeply our souls are connected to nature.

In stillness, we can be attuned to what areas in our life require tenderness, healing or courage.

In stillness, we can hear that little voice that whispers what our next steps are for growth and expansion.

In stillness, we can listen to our Truths.

In stillness, we can feel what truly inspires us and brings us Joy.

In stillness, we can hear our soul reveal what our life purpose is.

In these moments of emptiness, we can feel how we wish to contribute to the world.

In stillness, we can be clear about what legacy we would like to leave behind.

The choice is yours; see the positive and learn the lesson!

“Every day isn’t always good, but there is always something good in every day!” 


I read that quote yesterday and it really was just what I needed to hear!

It brought me back down to earth, reminding how easy it is to get caught up in the negative. It’s so, so, so easy to always focus on the bad, whatever the situation might be. (Bad weather, misplacing something, losing your job, a mistake you made, getting lost, getting sick, disagreeing with someone, someone leaves you or does something that hurts you, etc – the list goes on and on and on!) This is something I have been really working on in my own life;  trying to see the good in everything, even the not so positive situations. Holy moly – sometimes it’s really, really hard! 

 I’ve learned that we have a choice: we can focus on the positive or we can focus on the negative.
