Today’s Practice: New Endings

I’ve been thinking a lot in the last few weeks about new beginnings and new endeavors (obviously!!) — But, what I’ve come to realize is that this isn’t a new beginning for me, all this change, in fact, I cannot change my beginning, I can, and am, however, change my ending. That’s what I’m choosing…

Life is what happens when you make other plans…

I couldn’t think of any other way to title this post. If you’ve been reading here for a while, you know that I was/am about to embark on a journey to Pittsburgh. I am still leaving Portland. I am no longer moving to Pittsburgh. I cannot reveal where I’m moving to yet, there are still…

Today’s Jam: It’s a Slow Burn

This song randomly came upon my radio. Immediately I found myself focusing on the words. That’s the power of a good song and I believe wholeheartedly that the universe puts things in your life that you need to see at certain junctures of your life. This song is one of those: I’m alright with a…

Today’s Jam: Cause I Love You

This song, recently released, is from one of my new favorite obsessions. You should obsess over it, too. This song from Lizzo, Gives me life, slays me dead, then takes me to meet Jesus. Well worth a listen!

Today’s Practice: What I miss most?

There are methods to creating…

Today’s Jam: It Hurts

You Matter To Me.

I often write of friendships. Those relationships I’ve built, curated, nurtured, celebrated, and loved (and lost) over the many years of my life are all a part of who I am today. Who I’ve become, how I’ve grown, and how I view the world. But, the truth is, I wouldn’t be who I am in…

Today’s Jam: No Roots

This song is really catchy. But I find myself identifying with the message that my roots have never been in the ground, my head has always been in the clouds. I’m not stationary, I keep rollin’ on. And it is more than ok if you don’t either. I like standing still, but that’s just a…
