I went to Chain O’ Lakes in Indiana and stumbled on an “aha” around this missing component in my life & videos.
I’m starting a YouTube channel! In this video I share about listening to our callings & some of the reasons why YouTube has been ‘calling’ me.
I did a “Digital Detox” for around 60 days and had a pretty significant experience with it — so much so that I’ll be doing it again.
My first ever “guided meditation” focusing on finding my calmness, quieting the inner critic, and guiding myself to my own answers.

I’m stepping away from social media and other distracting mediums and activities for a period of time – to create space for my heart and more meaningful activities and connections.

My “altar” has brought back elements of spirituality, prayer, intentionality and more to my daily life – something I’ve “missed” for years.
What is your heart whispering to you, right now, if all you had to do was dim the lights, quiet the noise – and listen?
Are you feeling behind? Off track? Maybe you SHOULD be. The direction you’re going is different than where others are going.
Moving forward on something really important… is sometimes best left OFF the calendar. Are you kicking that important task down the road, every day?
Preparing for the first major adventure in quite some time where I’ll be getting way out of my comfort zone.
How often do you carve out time for your heart to communicate?
When overwhelmed, it manifests in my physical environment as “projects” and “notes” scattered about. Some time to attend to them goes a long way in creating “space” for productivity and creativity to emerge.
What do you do when you can’t decide to “stay” or “go” in a situation?
I haven’t had internet in the new apartment for over a week now and it’s one of the best things to happen.
When I’m not going anywhere, I want to choose “momentum” over the outcome by utilizing MINIMUM quotas and tiny tweaks.
The top 5 “remarkably stupid things” I’m doing on a regular basis to “absolutely screw up my life.” It all started with this recurring feeling that I’m not showing up in my life.
Over the past couple of weeks there has been a call to adventure – inwards towards the heart, full of solitude and introspection.
A recent lesson has been about “normalizing” the things about myself that feel authentic, but are “terrifying” to do or say publicly. The more I do it for myself, by myself, the more “normal” it becomes to my nervous system – and thus becomes easier to do around others.
I haven’t been practicing dance in quarantine, instead putting my focus into something else that has a BIGGER impact right now.
