I am connected to my heart and intuition, allowing them to guide me on my life’s journey. I recognize the power of the Law of Attraction and embrace many spiritual practices in my daily life. I believe in the mind-body connection and that we should rule our minds, or our minds will rule us.

I’ll be the first to admit I haven’t always been a confident dream chaser. I’ve certainly built up my self-confidence and belief system over the years. I sometimes reflect on my high school days where I was malleable and obedient – listening without hesitation to the rules set by others. No alcohol? Deal. No drugs? Deal. Get good grades? Sure, I can do that!
I measured a lot of early successes by how many clubs I was president of, how many honor societies I was inducted into, what commodities I possessed, and how many other people were proud of me. Of course, I was also proud of myself. I had something to show for my hard work and determination, and I certainly wouldn’t change a thing. Those little successes built my confidence, and I full-heartedly believe they were building blocks to who I am today.
Then… something shifted in me. I discovered who I am, and realized my dreams are now under my own influence. I am in control. This was new to me, and quite uncomfortable. But… I’ve leaned into this discomfort, and redefined success.

Happy December! Wow! It’s time for Christmas music, holiday lights, snowy landscapes, hot chocolate with Bailey’s, and cozy nights by the fireplace. Confession: I have been listening to Christmas music since before Thanksgiving. And I’ve already done some holiday crafts. But, now I can officially say: ‘Tis the Season! With the holidays coming up and the typical hustle and bustle, I try to stay connected and at peace. I love the holiday season way too much to sacrifice the joy for stress. Plus, December marks the last month of the year and I like to savor every last drop of each year before looking forward to the next one.
Although I am getting stronger spiritually, I still need reminders to stay mindful. I love being told I am CAPABLE of feeling what I want to feel. I love feeling SUPPORTED in my endeavors. This is why I’ve signed up for daily “Notes from the Universe” on Mike Dooley’s site The Universe Talks. His tagline is Thoughts Become Things, and I agree full-heartedly with the power of the mind. With our mind, we can control our physiological body. With our mind, we can create: stress or peace, fear or love. Just a simple thought can create these drastic shifts in our psyche. This is why I recommend you sign up for these little notes every day. Read on for my current favorite note from the Universe and some convincing you need to sign up ASAP…

Another year passed. I am a year older, but it’s more than that. Today, I reflect on all the changes I’ve seen in the past year, and genuinely believe I’ve created many tiny miracles and manifestations over the last 365 days. I’m incredibly grateful for the amount of LOVE I feel today; I have received and given so much love that my heart is completely full. As I am home today with strep throat (didn’t feel like sharing it with my patients), I am spending my time between naps in intense bouts of gratitude. Today, the Universe sent me this incredible email to wish me a happy birthday:
Let’s reflect on my year.

People will stare. Make it worth their while.
– Harry Winston –
Sometimes I’m awkward. Sometimes, I can’t quite find the right words to say. Sometimes, I am just plain ol’ making a fool of myself. I line dance in uncanny places, snort when I laugh (sometimes), make super weird nosies (I can sound like a dolphin/alien from “Signs”), and am not really the most coordinated or directionally astute human being.
But, I don’t care. I’m having fun, dancing through life, and this is who I am. I will be downright ridiculous, overly enthusiastic, and emotionally sensitive… often. I will be me, right out in the open, though there are hidden corners of my being that you may not see when we first meet. My soul is somewhat secretive, but accessible. It’s deep and lush, like the forest my adventure buddy and I found swallowing this secret ghost town in Washington…
