Well, Isn’t This a Clusterf*?$

A clusterf%$# is really the only way I can describe how I have felt the last few days. I would love to sit here and say I am handling all of the craziness outside–the social distancing, the quarantining, the working from home, well, but I am not handling it all that well. I stopped exercising. […]

Hug Your Chicken

When you walk into the supermarket and there is nothing left on the shelves it’s very hard not to panic. When you are told to stop hugging. When you are told to isolate yourself from the outside world, that too, makes it really hard not to freak out. When you aren’t getting good information or […]

I Am NOT a Newbie!

Last week I sat on my yoga mat, already sweating from the heat of the room. Only it wasn’t just the heat that was making me sweat. It was the idea that the teacher might ask if it was my first time. And guess what? It was my first time at a new studio. I […]

Next Stop: Priority Station

This week I had to either reschedule or cancel so many plans I wondered why I even made them in the first place. This is not uncommon for me. I want so badly to say yes to everything and everyone that I say yes without really thinking or looking at my calendar. I end up […]

I Will Not Eat Your Comparison Pie

Comparison is bad news bears. Comparison takes the joy that I am holding so delicately in my hand like the most perfect little flower and crushes it with a hammer the size of Venus. How do we cope with comparison? Why do we compare? I wake up in the morning and immediately it begins, the […]

Watch Me, But Don’t Look At Me

Chelsea as a three year-old: Dad! Daddy! Come watch my dance! I just made it up! Hurry! Dad: Okay, Pookadella, we’re coming! Chelsea: Okay, but you can only watch me…don’t look at me, okay? This is a conversation I had with my parents time and time again. When I was just a little girl I […]

Being a Human is Hard

A friend reached out to me and asked if I could chat a bit about letting go of things that happened to you in your past. Woof. That is a tough one and I certainly don’t have it all figured out, but there are a couple of things that I have found that can make […]

I Can Only Think About Elephants

As someone whose mind runs on high speed pretty much all the time being in the moment is always something that I thought wasn’t accessible to me. I decided I really wanted to puzzle this one out and these are the very early stages of me figuring out how to be in the moment. I […]

Inside Out and Some Tuning Forks

Because I am a woo-woo California girl, I had some biofield tuning done. If you don’t know what that is…it’s a form of healing with tuning forks where someone works on what you cannot see. Crazy s$!?, right? Well, while I was having my chakras aligned the healer asked me “do you have issues with […]
