I don’t really want to write this post, because I get upset thinking about it. But it’s boiling for me right now, so I must. And after watching S4:E1 of Yellowstone last night, I decided that I will be boycotting violence in the media and aggression towards women. I’m not going to attach a link to the this show, because you can search for it if you’re curious. And I am not going to include any imagery of violence in the media. Because by doing so, I would go against the points I will be making, for boycotting violence in the first place. I would like to keep this short, and get this over with quickly. So, pardon the brevity. And here we go! Continue reading BOYCOTTING VIOLENCE IN THE MEDIA AND AGGRESSION TOWARDS WOMEN
Ever since I was in art school (1998-2002), at the University of Arts in Philadelphia, I have loved attending this show. The Annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Contemporary Craft Show is at the Pennsylvania Convention Center every year. And this 2021 exhibition showcased 170 artists from all over the world. Every year that I attend this show, I leave with newfound inspiration. And lots of new amazing artists to follow on Instagram! Continue reading MY SCINTILLATING REVIEW OF THE ANNUAL PMA CRAFT SHOW

I was feeling kind of glum the other day. And as per usual, I stepped outside to spend some time with Mama Nature via my nearby nature trail. As I was walking, I just noticed that even though I was in kind of a blah mood, Mama Nature was just there for me. I felt her gentle vibes just kind of cradling me in kindness. And in that moment, I felt so supported, and so super grateful to have this beautiful relationship with her. I know not everyone can access nature on a regular basis. But I’m telling you, if you are able, spend regular time with Mama Nature and see what happens. Your life will become that much more magical, I promise! Continue reading SPEND REGULAR TIME WITH MAMA NATURE AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS

was taking my daily nature walk the other day, feeling hopeless about my contribution to the world. Thinking about all of my creative projects, I was getting caught up, focusing on all of the people who DON’T pay attention to me. And then Mama Nature, as she often does, gently graced me with her clarity and nurturing love in my moment of sadness. And the idea that both you and I should keep creating, even if no one seems to care, became so apparent. Creative expression is such a powerful, human tool. We can all access it, and we can all benefit from it. And just because you THINK no one seems to care, is no reason to stop. The flow must continue, regardless of external validations, or lack thereof. And here are five reasons why. Continue reading 5 REASONS TO KEEP CREATING, EVEN IF NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE
This podcast episode was inspired by The Goddesses. I mean, what else is new? They’re endlessly inspiring! And from the card I pulled below, I was inspired to pose this question to you: Are you taking ownership of your life, or is it the other way around? And I love this question. Because for so many years, I didn’t even realize I had a choice. I didn’t even know this was a thing I could do! And then I started learning ways to gradually (and sometimes not so gradually) take massive ownership of my life. And once I did this, I got REAL HAPPY, real fast. I want this for you as well. So, please listen and enjoy! Continue reading ARE YOU TAKING OWNERSHIP OF YOUR LIFE, OR IS IT THE OTHER WAY AROUND?
I have something I want to share with you. And typically, I have no problem sharing any and all manner of things with you. But tonight, I’m super scared, because I want this so badly that I’m afraid to admit it, even to myself. Because if I admit it to myself, then I must enter into that painful cycle of longing and wondering, hoping and waiting. So, in order for me to not feel so alone, will you join me? If I share this deepest desire with you, will you share yours with me? Or, are you more comfortable keeping your deepest desire hidden from the world? Continue reading ARE YOU KEEPING YOUR DEEPEST DESIRE HIDDEN FROM THE WORLD?
Are you a human being? Yes? And as a human being, have you ever experienced any pain, trauma, or fear as a child? Probably. And as an adult, do you sometimes get triggered by something that feels sort of deep-seated and somewhat irrational? Well, if so, welcome to being a person! Whether or not you had a dark childhood, or a fairly bright one, we’ve all experienced some form of trauma or fear as a little person. And we carry that wounded inner child around with us at all times, even if we are adulting like a goddess and holding down our shit! Well, I have an exercise that’s super easy and safe, if you are like me and don’t want to allow your wounded inner child to dictate your happiness as an adult. Continue reading HOW TO HEAL YOUR WOUNDED INNER CHILD
esque living in all areas of my life, I do believe this concept is important to grasp and master. I have been thinking a lot lately about the fleeting nature of happy. Mostly, because I have been experiencing so many happy feelings in my daily, everyday life. And when this happens, I pause for a moment and reflect.
