How often are we so distracted from what our heart is saying? Notice, I did not say our minds because we are already so cognitive, always questioning, second guessing, asking for validation, and finding excuses disguised as fear. I said our souls, our hearts. The gentle aspects of ourselves; the parts that speak our personal … Continue reading Whispers of the Soul
The other night I lay wide awake at midnight, well past my bedtime, stuck in a spiral of thoughts about the past. I wondered: If your heart hurts, do you swallow the pain and say "it will be ok?" or do you express yourself? Do you put a bandaid on the wound and pray it … Continue reading “Signs” in the Universe Teach Gratitude

These struggles, mixed … Continue reading Music Speaks….Listen
