FINDING A LOVE PARTNER DOESN’T JUST HAPPEN

In this podcast episode, I contemplate the profound magic and divine timing (some might call it luck) involved in meeting a love partner. I reflect on how most people only have a few actual love partners in their entire lifetime. Therefore, the process of finding a love partnership during a period of single-ness requires patience and trust. I also reflect upon both of my exes, and even though these partnerships did not work out, I still view them as sacred and divine. Finding a love partner doesn’t just happen, and it’s perfectly okay to take your time with this search. Continue reading FINDING A LOVE PARTNER DOESN’T JUST HAPPEN

DECEMBER REPRESENTS BOTH LOVE AND LOSS FOR ME

I’ve been feeling emotionally heavy lately and I haven’t been able to put my finger on it. But every year around this time I start to feel this way. And whenever I feel this way, I have a compulsion to create some art to get some of my gunky feelings out. Last night, I made something to release this gunk. Then, as I was running errands this morning, I realized the three biggest losses of my life all happened in December. And the art I made last night was a direct reflection of these three losses. In this post, I’m going to decode this work of art and share a few things with you. As it’s become abundantly clear to me that December represents both love and loss for me.

SEX, ART, AND RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE SAME IN THESE WAYS

In this podcast episode I discuss seven things that happen when we engage in sex, art-making, and entering into a relationship with another. All of these things require an element of surrender, as well as deliberate action, and so much more. And when these three processes are complete, we are never quite the same. It’s actually quite a beautiful way to make peace with loss, completions, and endings. And it’s an even better way to remain hopeful about continuing forward with these three beautiful acts of love.  Continue reading SEX, ART, AND RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE SAME IN THESE WAYS

3 WAYS I’VE TRIUMPHED AS A SINGLE WOMAN

This title doesn’t exactly capture the sentiment of this article, so let me clarify. I’m going to share specifically about three things I used to feel sorry for myself about as a single woman, but no longer attach a sad story to. Now, they’re just things that have nothing to do with me being single. Trust me, you’ll understand more once I get going. Continue reading 3 WAYS I’VE TRIUMPHED AS A SINGLE WOMAN

IF I’M BEING HONEST, I’M SCARED TO FALL IN LOVE AGAIN

I’ve been pulling daily tarot cards lately so I can be mindful of where my soul is at. And yesterday I pulled a card that perplexed me. The card was John Holland’s “Trapped in Fear” card, otherwise known as the 8 of swords in traditional tarot. And my first reaction was, “I’m not scared!” And then I had a dream last night that validated this card. Cementing for me, in the wee hours of this morning, the fact that, oh damn, I’m scared to fall in love again. Not just scared, but petrified. Continue reading IF I’M BEING HONEST, I’M SCARED TO FALL IN LOVE AGAIN

I KNOW IT’S BEEN A MINUTE SINCE I BLOGGED

I just wanted to do an update post for all of my lovely and devoted followers. In case you were wondering where I’ve been and why I haven’t been posting on my usual twice-a-week schedule. And if you didn’t even notice I was gone, that’s okay too! Either way, I know it’s been a minute since I blogged, and I wanted to offer an explanation as to why, if I can even explain it myself. At the very least, I will share with you what I’ve been up to over the last few weeks! Continue reading I KNOW IT’S BEEN A MINUTE SINCE I BLOGGED

WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU COCOONED, FOR REAL?

In this episode I share about my most recent dating disappointment, and how it compelled me to enter into cocooning mode after several days of resisting facing my feelings. Seriously, when is the last time you cocooned? Sad emotions, and even seemingly minor disappointments, setbacks, conflicts, and other life issues take a lot out of us. And many of us go months, if not years, without stopping to cocoon and just feel our feelings, and tend to ourselves. How many of you are resisting it too? Continue reading WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU COCOONED, FOR REAL?

DATING DISAPPOINTMENTS ARE FORCING ME TO BECOME MORE ZEN

Over the weekend, I had a dating potential go south, and I’m super bummed. This time, it wasn’t too terrible. He was so nice, and was so honest and up front about himself. And he essentially realized he wasn’t as ready to date as he thought he was, and decided to take a break to work on himself. I mean, I get it, I really do. But damn, I REALLY liked him. Granted, we only had two dates. But wow, dating him made me realize I need to raise my bar a bit. Because he’s the first guy I’ve dated in a really long time who I actually liked. And who I was insanely attracted to. And dating is so much more fun when you’re into it. However, dating disappointments hurt that much more when you really like the person. But, I suppose it’s a risk I’m willing to take on my quest for love. Continue reading DATING DISAPPOINTMENTS ARE FORCING ME TO BECOME MORE ZEN

MY LIFE IS A MEDITATION RIGHT NOW

In this podcast episode, I share about my experience with recently committing a bit deeper to my meditation practice. I really only meditate for 6 minutes every evening! And how this devotion has been helping with my fear and anxiety, as well as handling disappointments in life that may have otherwise sent me spiraling. Continue reading MY LIFE IS A MEDITATION RIGHT NOW

MY ZANY MOTHER VALUED FUN AND NEVER GIVE AF

This is the second post in my “The Story Of My Mother” series. And even though in my first post, I declared my intention to keep this series chronological, I’m already straying here. It’s just too impossible to share about my mother in any linear way. So I’m going to lean into the organic flow, and share some details with you about her zany personality in this post.
