Can you believe we’re halfway through the week already? It’s been a quick one for me, mainly because I’ve had about 32 hours of living planned for each 24 cycle I got. You know how it is. It all looks so good “on paper” until you actually start trying to do it all. There are […]
There’s nothing like a single breath in the midst of chaos to bring you back to the present moment. One of the most amazing things about your breath is that it’s always there, whether you realize it or not. When you do notice it, however, you can use it intentionally to calm and center yourself.
Arriving into a Friday afternoon, most of us have one of two primary motivations for the evening ahead: 1) turn up, or 2) curl up. The one of those that sounds most appealing to you on any given Friday may have a lot to do with the kind of week you’ve had, what lies ahead

I had a thought about today’s post, and then I changed my mind. Lots of things changed, actually. The day I thought I was going to have isn’t the one that seems to lay ahead. The way things are going, there’s a good chance the day I start out having won’t be the day I
Today we honor an exceptional life, one of service to the fundamental beliefs that all human beings are created equal and deserve the freedom to live, learn and love as they choose. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. devoted – and gave – his life to righting the injustices he saw in his nation, and efforts
It’s about time. Or at least, Wednesday’s post was. Mindfulness requires at least a little bit of it, if you really want to see change happen, but none of us has enough. We can hardly manage to get through everything we need to focus on, let alone make time to intentionally take our focus off
Here’s an observation that may not surprise you: it seems like a lot of people are starting out the year with a resolution to add a mindfulness or meditation practice to their routines.
