#Morning Journaling


Sometimes all we need is some #USTIME with our journals, a pencil, and a cozy place to settle into.

That is what I did this morning, and boy did it #FEEL good!

Todays #topic?  Allowing LIFE to FLOW through us.

Simply by tuning into our bodies, we will know what feels good to us and what doesn’t.  Usually when we allow life to flow as it should, without resisting it or forcing it, we #FEEL good.  The feelings in our bodies are great indicators for how we are living.  Happily or stressful?

Whatever feels #good to your body, do that!

Side #note:  Give yourself the time to express what is on your heart.  You will thank yourself for this small, yet precious #gift!




Change it #UP



As I was driving to #Montana this evening, I reached a very familiar place, a place where I had once shared many special memories with an old lover.  I began to feel sad.  It hit me, yet again, that our paths had severed, and it was just me driving to Montana, and not ‘us’.

As a few more memories floated into my mind, I took a deep breath and looked out the window.  There, I saw the most beautiful sunset, setting over the #Bridger Mountain Range.  It was in that moment that I realized, I had a choice.  I could follow these feelings of sadness, which mind you, I have done countless of times already, or I could #CHANGEUP my perspective.


I decided to #changeup my perspective.  Rather than losing myself in the sadness, I chose to feel grateful for experiencing such a great love.  To have had such wonderful memories with someone I care so deeply for, felt refreshing.  I then reminded myself, that although we are no longer together, I will always carry a piece of him in my heart, and for our time together, I will always remain grateful.

I glanced outside the window, to witness, once again, the magnificent sunset.  Shortly after, another feeling came to me, it was a feeling of #PEACE.  The peace I observed in the sunset, I realized, was also inside of me.  I can’t explain it in words, but in retrospect, by allowing myself to feel sad, but then recognizing that I could choose another perspective, allowed me to let go of the unnecessary and repetitive thought patterns, which have caused me such despair in the past, and bring me to a place of freedom and peace, #THESUNSET.

We all have a choice.  I know at times our thoughts can be over bearing and sometimes seem too much to handle.  But there is always another way.  By practicing compassion towards ourselves, allowing ourselves to feel, and then realizing that we don’t have to engage in every thought, will set us #FREE.


Rememeber: Be gentle with yourself, allow yourself to feel, but know when to back out and take the high road.

IT TAKES #PRACTICE, like anything in life.  But a practice which will set us #FREE and make us #HAPPIER human beings.

Island #FEVER


Over the past couple of days, or weeks, I have felt this urge to travel, in particular, to somewhere tropical.  I don’t know where this feeling is coming from or what it may lead to, but I know that it is there.  I was taught, by Martha Beck, that once you feel something, really feel it in your body, the next best step is to let it go.  Allow the Universe to take it from your hands.  That is more or less what I have been trying to do.  However, it keeps reappearing.

There is this overwhelming feeling (in the greatest and most mystical way) within me to #EXPLORE.  The wildest part about this mysterious scenario, is that on my #NEWYEARS intention jar (see below), the word which I chose for 2014 was #EXPLORER.  I find it funny that I am now feeling this urge to explore.


I chose to write this blog post because I felt the need to document it.  When I have feelings like this, it is always fun to go back a few months or years after and see what came from those feelings.

After I post this, I am going to let it this feeling flow out from my hands.  I truly believe, that if I am supposed to travel and explore, it will happen.  However, if I attach myself to a certain outcome, such as: where will I go, when will I go, or who will I go with (although I would like to go alone) (there I go again ;)), then I may block the Universe from trying to help and lead me.

So this is me, handing it over to the Universe.  I know that what will be, will be, and if I continue to think and ponder about it, I may just end up manipulating the entire situation.

I know deep within me that this year calls for me to #EXPLORE.  I feel it in my bones.  And I will let the Universe handle the rest. 🙂

I will Keep all y’all POSTED!
