A Life of Celebration

What I am celebrating right now… Spring growth. Freshness. Warmth. Sunlight. A mantle of green upon the world. Birds aflutter. Friskyness and frolicking. Busy fingers. Bright yarn. Creative urges. Gifts from my hands. Textures and tactile rhapsodies. Family. Love. Engagements. Wedding plans.  Any excuse for bubbles. Togetherness. Bright futures. Health. Spirit. Unconditional love. Shadows. Kin. […]

A Longing to Make a Difference

I have always longed to make a difference. To somehow be a person who by shining my light gives another permission to shine theirs. And yet, this has been my greatest challenge. In longing to make this difference I have created a wall of expectations for myself. Expectations that I then try, mightily, to live […]

An Invitation to Ease

It was one of those moments where my whole body shook, my stomach did flip flops, and I had trouble sitting still. I had been invited to attend a workshop in Portland Oregon in the (US) summer. I’d never been to the US, and I’d never travelled overseas alone. My husband and I talked about […]

In Search of Lightness

When the day is dreary, wet, cold, grey as it is here today, I have a tendency to feel withdrawn, with a melancholy-ness of spirit and a burning desire to feel the sun on my skin. It’s easy to lose motivation and instead feel a need to retreat into a cocoon of comfort and numbness. […]

A Moment in Time

I have a feeling that the choice of Time as our theme this month is no accident. We’re already a week into June and I’ve been fluffing about, not happy with draft after draft of words to introduce the theme to you. And it felt like there was a rolling pin involved in my discussions […]

Happiness is…

Ahhh… happiness. A word so fraught with possibility, so packed with meaning, and echoing with emotion. I believe happiness is not something we can pursue, with any chance of catching it. In my life, happiness is always there. It simply waits for me to notice. It’s in the contentment of a clean sink, a washing […]

The Best of Freedom

It seems startling to me, looking back, how relevant our theme of the month often is. During April, Freedom became an anthem of hope. Freedom from pain, freedom from terror, freedom from heartache. Freedom from fear. And yet, in that awkward dichotomy, we sometimes need to feel the lack in order to feel blessed for […]

What Does Freedom Mean to You?

I am so curious. It’s an oft bandied-about word. Freedom. And we all have different interpretations, personal interpretations of what it means to us as an individual. What DOES freedom mean? Is it about power and right? Is it about freedom to do, or not do? Is it about freedom from, or to? We are […]

The Best of Courage

I’ve shared some in-depth conversations about courage recently. The courage to quit when the world would like to see us not rock the boat. The courage to say no, when the rest of the world wants us to say yes. The courage to go against ‘the way it’s always been done‘ to do it your […]

We’re talking about Courage

March 1, 2013 by  
Filed under current, The Space

How courageous are you? Fight or flight. Face the danger, or run from it. Avoid it, or tackle it headlong. I have so many questions about having courage and being brave. I’ve never thought of myself as particularly brave – I’ve never jumped out of a plane, nor thrown myself off a bridge with only […]
