You Are Divine Love and Other Things I Learned at I Can Do It

This weekend I attended my first spiritual conference, sponsored by Hay House, called "I Can Do It 2014." Leading up to the weekend, I had experienced a number of big life changes and it seemed like this conference could not have come at a better time. On Saturday morning, I woke up exhausted, guzzled a cup of caffeine, forgot about breakfast, drove like a maniac thinking I would be late, and then a funny thing…

Why I Won’t Live in Fear

There's a line in a cheesy 90's movie called Strictly Ballroom that comes to mind every time I think of the word "fearless." At the end of the movie, the father turns to his son before a ballroom dancing competition. He doesn't want his son to walk away from the competition and end up regretting it, like he did. He says, “We had the chance but we were scared. We walked away...We lived our lives…

Here’s My 75 Cents

I wrote this article on April 29, 2010. I can't believe we are still having this conversation in 2014!  ------ I am a self-proclaimed equalist. I say equalist because I believe it should be a word. Back in college I was introduced to feminism in my first Women's Studies class. I remember my professor clearly because she was a little old red-haired lady with perfect red lipstick, who wore the cutest dresses and shoes. She…

The Things I Learned at YogaFest 2014

I was excited for YogaFest. I wouldn't stop talking about it all week. Especially after all the fun I'd had at last year's YogaFest. But then came the rain. Several of the girls I was going with started to cancel, and all the excitement I had been building up all week began to wear away. What if it pours all day? What if the location gets moved inside. It just won't have the same feeling,…

What It Feels Like to Be a Writer

It's not easy being a writer. I think people often romanticize the writing process. Like authors wake up every morning, brush the curtains aside, sit musing with a cup of coffee as the birds sing outside, and then write a book. Like it's that simple to write a book. Like every morning will be as beautiful as the next, filled with inspiration and beauty. The truth is, writers, just like professionals in any trade, have…

How I Healed Myself With Food and Became A Nutritionist

While tweeting about health and wellness I was honored to come across Amanda Hayes, a nutritionist and holistic health expert. We tweeting back and forth, I realized I had a lot to learn from her. Food, as it turns out, is so much more than what the grocery store wants you to believe. Amanda learned this first hand. This is her story... ------------- I have always been interested in health and nutrition. At 10 years…

How Turning 30 Changed My Life

This week I will be turning 31. Eek. Although it is not nearly as scary as it was to turn 30; looking back on the past year I can't believe just how much I've grown. When I first turned 30, I wrote a silly blog post about what every woman should have by the age of 30. Reading over the list, my opinions still stand. But in the past year I have noticed things about myself and the…

5 Ways to Start Your Day Right

Sometimes the first few minutes of the day is the only chance you have to be totally still and alone. In the past, my morning routine would go a little bit like this: Hit the snooze button. Hit the snooze button. Hit the snooze button. Look at the clock. Freak out. Roll out of bed. Jump in the shower. Brush teeth while in the shower to hurry things up. Throw on clothes. Rush to car.…

4 Ways to Open Your Heart Chakra and Find Love

There are many reasons to guard your heart. After all, we all know what it feels like to be hurt by people we cared for or have our hearts broken. When you are in the middle of a break up, you might even feel a pain in your heart, perhaps that is where the term "broken heart" actually comes from. Over the years I have had the opposite of a guarded heart. My problem is…
