Stream of Consciousness

After an almost 4 month hiatus I'm happy to say I'm back to writing!!

Over the last few months I struggled to settle on a certain topic I wanted to write about. When it comes to my writing I am definitely a perfectionist and I feel like I need to deliver a top-quality piece with a clear beginning, middle and end each and every time. My mind, emotions and experiences were all over the place and I couldn't settle down enough to string together what I considered a cohesive and coherent post. But then I realized life is not always so succinct and easy to tie up in a nice little package and that in and of itself is what makes it so beautiful. Back in the beginning of June I was on the cusp of experiencing so much beauty, so much opportunity, and so much "newness".  As I've moved through so much in the past few months I finally decided to take the leap and just write: attempting to cover all that I've been feeling and all that has been happening. Here goes nothing – my stream of consciousness post! I'm smirking as I'm typing because there's no way I can adequately capture all of my feelings and do them justice with mere words.

So…it’s been a while! HELLO! I haven’t written in such a long time for a few reasons but the primary one being….(drumroll please)…. I’M PREGNANT! My husband and I found out earlier this spring that we’re going to have a baby in December, which is to be quite honest is the absolute best thing that has ever happened to me and my husband and our literal dream come true.

The Law of Attraction and manifesting your destiny

“You will always be okay! Money and material things come to you when you dare to trust in life’s ability to take you exactly where you need to go. When we live in fear we create tense vibrations that keep the things we long for at a distance. Worrying is praying for what we don’t want to happen. Focus on what you want, not what you fear!” - Rachel Brathen

Mind Body Aligned

The universe truly works in magical ways. Roughly a year and a half ago I was at one of my all-time lowest points. It certainly didn’t help that I got in not one, but two, car accidents within 5 weeks. The second accident was pretty traumatizing and totaled not only my car, but the remainder of the spirit I was fighting to hold on to.

The body

This week I want to talk about something we carry with us everywhere, but hardly ever think about.  Unless we’re complaining about it! Or pinching and prodding it.

OUR BODIES!

Spring is here and as soon as it rolls into summer we can all bet that every advertisement will be about bikinis, losing weight, and getting rid of cellulite, blemishes and any other perceived imperfection a body can have.  In conversations with friends, the topics will be “I need to lose 10lb or I have to get rid of these stretch marks before I can show my legs.” And I want to head this off at the pass, so to speak. I know that the way the media landscape is, this post may be the only positive thing you read about your body this whole season.  Even ads and organizations claiming to be body positive resort to tactics that trick us into feeling bad, all so we’ll buy the latest bra, skin cream, or eyeshadow.

We'll all float on okay

The past six weeks have been nothing but beautiful chaos. The last time I wrote we were gearing up for heart month and all that goes along with it. There truly aren’t adequate words to express how much all of this has come to mean to us. However, if i had to pick one word to begin to describe things, it would definitely be passion.

Dreaming one step at a time

Writing this post to you from a quiet weekend away with my other half. We spent our New Years 2018 here too and I spent so much of that time writing about what I hoped would come to pass in the next year. And I want to talk what can seem to be a scary and complicated topic: manifesting and achieving dreams. 

My most wonderful time of the year

Well…it’s 7 PM on January 31st which means in just a few hours we will officially be 1/12th of the way through 2019! I swear time is flying by, even though there have certainly been days that I felt were dragging into actual eternity. As January draws to a close I wanted to check in with all of our lovely readers and see how everyones first month went in terms of rethinking/reframing your resolutions and doing more of what sets your soul on fire!
