Take a Moment

MOMZILLA… you know one of THOSE parenting mornings…

It was QUITE the rough parenting morning, so I hopped on here to share some insights and naked truths about being human and sometimes MOMZILLA!! A little about how today I’m choosing curiosity over judgement and nourishing over self-battery or numbing. We are so in this being human thing together. Thanks for being human with me. CLICK…

Be the plant!

This is one of my favorite metaphors when it comes to our thriving journey.   Think of yourself as a plant. Simple stuff.

The first thing to do with any BIG problem.

Today was one of those days where I decided to take my anxiety out for a run in the woods. I’m in the thick of a decision, that feels big, and my intuition points strongly in a different direction than my logic, fears, and comfort zone. This morning, anxiety was winning out over patience and…
