What is Addiction?

It’s 2am. The phone screen lights up your face as you lie scrolling in bed. Has it been 2 hours? 3? You know you’ll pay for this tomorrow and you only have a few hours until you have to be up for work. But you keep going, still feeling unsatisfied.  It’s been a bad day…

"Late Bloomer"

When I first read this poem by Danielle Doby I immediately cried. The words felt like home…it put a voice to something that I had felt inside me for so long but could not name.
I used to hold a lot of shame around the part of me that felt like a “late bloomer”. Now I feel so much gratitude for the meandering path my heart has taken to create this sweet little life that is beginning holding all of me.

Wild Geese, Mary Oliver

Words from Mary Oliver’s poem, Wild Geese. My heart wants to read these words over and over this week. These past few months the busy part of myself has been showing up. And I can feel my body calling for rest, a reminder that I am a part of this wonderful wild earth and it’s ok to be still.

This Morning…

I am imperfect…

Hello Resistant Part

Hello Resistant Part
I have a Resistant Part of myself. When I meditate on it, this part seems as if it’s as old as dirt…that it has been with me most of my life protecting me from experiencing stories that my brain has deemed unsafe in the past…

Weight

Weight. On my soul, my eyes, on my body.  So much weight. It feels hard to move.  Stuck in the muck of life.  Rooted in the ‘not enough part’. Not enough, so must  consume and consume and consume, everything. Too much, too many, too, too, too. Heavy. Is it loving to write these words? To…

Yes, and…

I am here because… I want to love me. I want to love life… even the parts I don’t want. I want to accept that I will never be done trying to love all the parts. This is not a fight to the death… and it also is. And I see I am not alone,…

My Heart is a Voyager

My heart is a voyager Feeling the unknown like a tide Feeling the pulse and pull She sails the high seas Through ups and downs Calm and storm She calls them waves and rides them as they appear My dear heart She moves toward the dark The depth The beasts At the same time she…

We have choices!

I had dinner with a friend the other night in this delectable Argentinian restaurant in downtown Denver and she tells me she is writing a book about YOU.  She explains that it must be about YOU, because that word needs to be redefined since most people don’t understand it.  As I sit listening to her…

Who is attached to whom?

I always imagined that staying at home with my sweet baby boy would be a dream come true.  However, as I look back and think about it, I can see that I was at a complete loss much of the time.  I was grasping at straws, trying to control everything by making spreadsheets of breastfeeding…

Here I am again

Here I am again. Do I give myself up for other? Do I stay with myself, my experience? I want to want me. I can feel it in my core. Solid and warm. Right there. When I stop and breathe, there she is. Tiny and wild, naked with mud on her belly and feathers in…
