The world as we know it has shifted and the uncertainty can be overwhelming at times. We are in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is unprecedented in its effect on the entire globe. Quarantining. Isolation. Social Distancing—all of these have never been a reality before, and we are all learning a new normal as our lives shift drastically. Homeschooling and working from home are part of that new normal—and as my friend, Lauren says, “Mamahood through...

The days are long but the years are short--before I had kids this is what I always heard parents say.   And from experience I can now say no truer words were ever spoken about parenthood. The days ARE long and some days are certainly harder than others.  But amid all of t...

Dear Mom Guilt,

I am feeling feisty today--so watch out.  Emily Ley told me in her book Grace Not Perfection that you are a liar, and today I decided to believe her.  And so, like any true break up, I know this will be a process--but it is time for me to say a much overdue goodbye.

No longer will I endure your abuse.  No longer will I tolerate your gaslighting and manipulations.  No longer will I let you activate old stories and patterns.

Get out of...

As I am sitting here working on an overdue blog post and trying to set the agenda for my Sacred Bliss Women’s Circle event I have been interrupted 5 times in the last 40 minutes, and it got me thinking about an important topic that I know I’m not alone in---how to get in your creative flow amid distractions, specifically the mom life.

I used to trivialize my interests and not create space for my passion.  I would let the mom guilt...

It is the Autumn Equinox and although here in Charleston weather-wise, it still very much feels like summer, this signifies a change in seasons.

This year I am feeling this season change really intensely.  My daughter turns 4 years old tomorrow. 4 years. I am letting that sink in for a moment.  I have been a parent for 4 years. I have grown alongside her. I still remember what it was like to be 4 years old sometimes.  She’s such a bi...

Remember what’s sacred. This phrase keeps coming up for me these days. As a society, I feel that we have lost a sense of sacredness. Sacredness, which is defined as having divine quality or worthy of respect and reverence, seems to be lost in present day life. In our schools. In our families. In our lives.

Schools have become a place of ove...

This month my Mastermind Mamas and I are reading Elizabeth Lesser’s Marrow and the book has had so many profound takeaways for me.  Lesser uses her experience with being a donor for her sister’s bone marrow transplant as a way to raise bigger questions about what it means to be part of this human journey called life and how to show up authentically. She talks about putting your soul in charge of your life and how...

The idea of surrender is an idea of ceasing resistance--of going with the flow--and a sort of acceptance for the things that we cannot change and the acknowledgement that there is a greater plan beyond ours. This pregnancy for me has been one major act of surrender.  It started with surrendering fear after my last pregnancy did not result in a baby but inst...

Dear Mama,

Happy 2018! A new year is upon us and I have an important question for you: Is this year finally going to be the year? The year that you shatter the ceiling on self imposed limitations? The year that you get honest about what you want—starting by being honest with yourself.

The year that you heal all the way through instead of shoving those feelings down?...

Surrender

To

Life’s

Imperfections

I have been giving others advice about how to support their wellness and fight off flu season.

I took all the precautions for me and my family.

Yet somehow I sat in the Minute Clinic parking lot, ugly crying into my face mask--you know the ones they give you that make you feel like a leper--wondering how did I get here?

I knew that this was going to be a busy week as I looked ahead to my calendar.  Master...
