back in the day, as a newbie yogi, i thought my yoga teachers had it all together. they seemed so serene and peaceful. but as a yoga teacher myself, that has not been my experience. sure, i have periods that are easy, but in equal measure i'm at war inside. i wonder...read more
i've always been a planner - it's both a blessing and a curse. it's good to be organized but it's also easy to take it to a 'whole 'nother level.' see: obsessive compulsive. yep, guilty. in the early 2000's i bought myself a leather coach notebook/planner holder that...read more
i don't like to always sit in a chair. as often as possible, i like to sit on the floor to keep my hips open. but since i'm writing every day now, it's hard to sit on the floor and work on my laptop without causing a lot of shoulder and neck pain. i began to research...read more
i haven't written a blog post in a while because things have been busy. that is a good thing, y'all, but i miss posting here - mostly because i like to look back on it later to see what i was up to. i'm back on social media, but don't want to get carried away with it....read more

today is my husband's 42nd birthday. and i'm rosy sunshine. except that is a lie. well, the last part is a lie - it IS my husband's birthday. yesterday my friend rachel opened a new yoga studio, grass roots. so exciting. she asked me to work the front desk and i...read more

what do you do when your whole world is turned upside down? how do you determine what to do next when you can't even figure out the best thing to do right now? what about when you start to question your sanity, whether you'll make it through the day without breaking...read more

i think. a lot. for this reason i write. a lot. it’s a main staple of my sanity. i’ve relied on social media for many years to get my thoughts out. i have this need to share, be seen, heard. and while i often share what’s in my heart and how i’m internalizing life, it’s censored, of course. we all censor. we all show our best sides to the world.
if you’ve made your way here, thank you for caring enough to see what i’m up to. i’ve taken a break from social media and am hoping to quit altogether. for some reason it’s scary. but in being afraid and doing it anyway, i have faith that i will learn and grow.
i am a human being having a human experience on this earth in this lifetime. i want my life to matter. i want to look back and know that i’ve made some small difference in the world. i feel like part of my gift is the ability to see things differently. and i best articulate through writing. so i’ll keep writing in my personal journal, because i have to. and i’ll share some of those thoughts here. i will try to censor less, because i think it’s important. i’ve titled this online journal P E R F E C T L Y I M P E R F E C T, because i am. and i am done with shame.
i assume if you’re reading, i might resonate with you in some way. if so, please leave me a comment on any post … let me know where/how i can find you – email, text, a website/blog. would love to connect, have a conversation about things that matter.
