The Blog

Welcome, come on in and grab your cup of tea/coffee while I take a few moments to tell you about this space!!

I created this blog as a way to connect with you. I will post regularly on topics related to body, mind and spirit. Some topics that  I love writing about are self- compassion, resilencey, emotional ntelligence, minfulness and mental health.

I want this to be a space for heartfelt conversation. What are heartfelt conversations you may wonder? Heartfelt conversations are defined as being genuine in feeling, sincere, honest and warm. I created this space so we can begin to honor ourselves by taking a moment and allowing for reflection on life, relationships ,wellbeing  and personal and spiritual growth.

When I think about life today I know that many of us experience feeling busy and overwhelmed in everyday life. This feeling of “business” often leads to not feeling present in our daily activities and our our work and not connected in our relationships. Sometimes when we feel this way it is hard to know where to even start in terms of creating space for heartfelt conversations. So I am sharing with you today how we can begin to do this in just 30 seconds…yes that is right just 30 seconds 🙂
