    Natures Help In Finding A Mantra For Strength

    I recently spent my Labor Day camping on an island with a few close friends and my pup. I have been so busy rearranging my life since our world changed in March that I haven’t been able to unplug, clear my head or relax. The time away in the beauty of nature was really good for my soul. I am not a hard core camping kind of person. I prefer running water, hot showers and a bug free environment but I do love being outdoors. While off on a small lake island, nature helped in finding my new mantra for strength.  I quietly admired the sounds of the waves gently…

    Live A Better Life Everyday

    I am so ready for 2020 to be over, I am sure I am not the only one. Since Covid hit in March, my life has been shaken up with all kinds of difficult emotions.

I want to grow from this experience, moving forward I want to live a better life every day and stop wasting time. I don’t want to complain or say “I can’t wait for life to…

    Fear In Artist From Pandemic

I was dating someone who had admitted his love for me in December, I had big plans to grow my business, to start some new creative projects, to teach a travel abroad class and to travel with another business as a possible…

    Equality Through Understanding

    Freedom and equality are two important things America was built upon. It is what attracts foreigners to this country with dreams of being free in a land of opportunities. It is a country people refer to as the “melting pot” where “indivisible with liberty and justice for all” is inviting to all people. But, as we know it seems to sit very far from THAT truth as a Nation, especially right now.   I believe it is time for real change, that all of us no matter what color or creed need to educate ourselves, to understand what is broken and why. Anger and hate will not bring change, education and…

    Deceptive Anger Caused By Covid 19

    This was written last week before everything happened with regards to the protest over George Floyd’s death, I could have never imagined how the weekend would play out in regards to anger. I have felt it brewing just under the surface for months. It comes and it goes, it makes me feel insecure, sad and it makes me question everything. I have no idea why I can’t shake it, there is not one specific thing I can point to but I am convinced that what I am exposed to online and the act of constantly comparing myself to others is likely the biggest culprit. Today I am full of deceptive…
