4.145 Thinking ahead

I’m in the thick of motherhood where I am doing my best to be present with my kids and I’m also already thinking of my time after they are out of the house. I’ve seen a lot of older mothers have a tough time when their kids move out and really...

4.144 Up next: the body

As someone who has proudly focused on using her brain for ~40 years, I’m slowly coming around to the idea that it is not quite enough. The culture I grew up in is so hyper-focused on the brain that it completely neglects connection with the body. The body needs...

4.143 Creating space

Just as the shore does not try to hold onto each wave, we must learn to let go of things with the trust that more will be coming. The shore cannot hold onto infinite waves. It releases each wave to allow the next to come. Space needs to exist in order for more...

4.142 Bedtime and death

Unsurprisingly, the thing I’ve grappled with the most since moving up my bedtime is how it has reduced my personal time. This is the time I get the extra’s done and often, my writing. My youngest slept at 10:30 tonight [insert sobbing face] and I feel so...

4.141 That little extra

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. So what is that little extra making it greater?

4.140 No comparison

You’re not doing it wrong because no one has done it before. No one has lived this life – the very one you are sitting and breathing in. Of course it feels like you’re totally messing it up – but if no one has done it before, what is your point of...

4.139 Unplugged my way

My computer stayed in my backpack all weekend (until the writing of this blog post). While I was still online on my phone, I spent less time online altogether. Perhaps one day I will be phone free for a weekend too but for now, I see what transpired this weekend to be...

4.138

I’ve recently started using an AI app that takes my voice recordings and transcribes them. I have used the Voice Memos app on my iPhone for a few years and always wished I could get the notes of what I said. This app summarizes my audio clips and creates bullet points...

4.137 Generosity

Above all, learn to accept generosity. When someone gives you something or does something for you out of the goodness of their heart, they are not trying to make you feel bad. That’s all on you. Instead of turning away the gift or saying you shouldn’t have, say thank...

4.136 Why I cleanse

I’m on Day 2 of a 3 day kitchari cleanse (kitchari is a yummy and soothing bean and rice dish with origins to India – I also like to add avocado to it). It has been many years since I’ve gone on a cleanse. Growing, nursing and raising babies has...
