September Journaling – Day 8

The one change I need to make to increase my happiness is to get back to meditation. I need that stillness in my brain in order to clear space for creativity. This is especially true as I build this coaching practice and try new and different things. Getting back to a meditation practice will really […]

September Journaling – Day 7

I have had some thoughts stirring around about where I want to live. Is it London? Is it Santa Fe? Is it somewhere else? And it feels oddly important even though I’m happy where I am and want to be here. So I want my brain to slow down and give me a break. I […]

September Journaling – Day 6

Some of the labels I use to talk about myself are: kind, ambitious, aggressive, generous, woman, leader, sister, aunt, friend, difficult, independant, boundaried.

September Journaling – Day 3

Hmmm…these days I generally can ask for what I need. But this question makes me think of my need to ask for consideration. I have learned with time to ask for help, but I want to ask for others to be considerate of where I am and what I’m going through. I think what that […]

September Journaling – Day 2

My younger self would be so proud of me for finally being able to say, “I really want people to like me.” Those words sound and feel desperate as I read them back. But there is no desperation there. Just desire for connection and friendship. I am a person who seeks and wants community. There […]

September Journaling – Day 1

This month I am looking to work in a new and updated habit of meditation. I used to do it fairly regularly and once even did a stretch of 100 days. But lately my concentration levels are so sporadic that I haven’t been even trying to make the time. So starting today I will try […]
