More Than Enough

As the late summer days cool down and slide quietly into fall, I find myself reflecting on the last few months with a sense of appreciation. It has been quite a mixed bag and as I’ve tumbled my way through, it has been a tribute to the truth that can only be found in learning … Continue reading More Than Enough

What is Love

There’s something that happens the moment you realize that you deserve better. It’s hard to put into words, and maybe it feels different for each person who reaches that place. For me, it has felt like a Holy Expansion. Like my heart space has been blown wide open and suddenly I can see my worthiness … Continue reading What is Love

Longing for Me

Every single person that I have met has a deep inner longing to be seen, known, and loved for the core who they are. And yet, we are all plagued by a sense of shame that if we are seen, we will be rejected. That it is not really possible to be fully seen and known and also to be loved. It is tragic that we put so much energy into hiding from the world. That we reject ourselves the most in order to avoid being rejected by others.

Orgasm and the Holy Grail

You might have guessed that this post might be particularly difficult for me to write, let alone share. It ups the vulnerability factor for me times a million and makes me intensely uncomfortable.

There was a time when I thought I could never be happy without children. I spent from 2008 to 2015 with one plan: Become a mother. Get pregnant. Conceive. I believed with all of my being that I was destined to be a mother and I would never, ever be okay without being one. That’s … Continue reading Healing, forgiveness and finding hope after loss

Behind the Façade

I have been really struggling with something lately. No, not just lately. Let’s make that always. I have always been struggling with this particular state of mind. I feel somewhat embarrassed to share this, not that I haven’t shared so many other personal things, but this feels particularly vulnerable to me. Perhaps it’s because this … Continue reading Behind the Façade

How it feels when a heart breaks

It’s funny how looking back at the memories Facebook saves for us can put into perspective how much things have changed in a relatively short period of time. What was my state of mind one, two, three, five years ago? What was I doing? What kinds of things was I worried about? And how much … Continue reading How it feels when a heart breaks
