Self-Care Sunday: Family Time

This past week, and in the past few weeks, there has been a lot of heavy revelations that have come to us through social media. Some of us have seen video footage of police brutality (and for those who have chosen to not watch, I understand), physical assault, frightening confrontation between protestors and law enforcement,…

I Don’t Know How to Feel

I sat down at my computer yesterday, trying to formulate some words about how I feel. There’s so much criticism in a person’s silence about the current issues were facing; the murder of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless others that have suffered the horrific an unjustified and untimely death.

How to Help Your Kid Cope with Quarantine

With my last few posts, it’s clear I don’t have to stress the overwhelming nature of this pandemic and quarantine is causing; however, there is one more population that is also dealing with the pandemic, and that is our beautiful babies. My daughter is 6, and despite her being so young, she is well aware…

Yea, I’m That Kind of Introvert.

About two years ago, my best friend showed me a video, that showed you the difference between being an introvert and an extrovert. Before watching this video, I didn’t really think I fell into the introvert category because I could be pretty social when I wanted to be. I figured I was pretty much just…

Part 1: Acknowledge Yourself and What You’re Going Through.

This is the first part of a blog series that I introduced back in September, titled A Journey through Self.  My goal for this series was to help acknowledge, accept and take accountability for the journey through learning more about myself, the good, bad and ugly, and finally finding a way to get through it…

Self-Care Sunday: Sitting in Stillness

After a long and stressful week of working, or even after the day’s events, sometimes I just want to sit in silence. There are days when I will sit in my meditation space, and instead of journaling or doing a guided meditation, I will just sit there and watch the candles as they flicker into…
