My Blog

Welcome to my blog! We discuss real topics, not just feel-good topics. We are judgement-free. We are all students and teachers in our spiritual practice, and there is no better vehicle for learning about ourselves than interacting with each other in our daily lives.

I tell it like it is. The most authentic way of aligning with who we are is by honoring and celebrating ourselves, without fear and doubt. Humor is a big part of who I am, so don’t be surprised if deep spiritual concepts are counterbalanced with situational humor. I promise to always bring my authentic self, and encourage you to do the same.

I love to write about what people want to read, so email me and let me know what you would like to see!

And the…

You’re Gonna Miss This

I remember hearing the song You’re Gonna Miss This by Trace Adkins for the first time when it was released in 2008, when my oldest daughter was four. With a 4 year-old, 18-month old, and newborn, I was steeped in all things motherhood – homemade baby food, homemade playdough, and sky-high piles of laundry, and…

A Little Story about Fear, and my Boobs

I don’t usually talk about my boobs, but when I do, it’s serious business. Ok, this is where I explain my recent mammogram experience to an audience that is predominantly male. This oughta be fun 🙂 So I went for a routine mammogram screening recently. I’ve been going for years now, and every year I…

Live Authentically is on the Move!

Start spreadin’ the news! (cue Frank Sinatra). Live Authentically is on the move. While I love that technology allows us to connect with people all over the world, I still believe in the power of connecting with people in person.  That said, I’m super excited to tell you (through the classics of Frank Sinatra and…
