I sat in meditation every day this past week for the first time since I first tried this practice when i was 8 years old.(a whole other story) It was the only thing I could do to rest my mind and restore my energy, other than the B multi and tablespoon of bee pollen (energy and energy) As I’m officially grossed out from coffee and super grateful to say that. I have wanted to leave coffee for awhile. There are addictions that have held my wellness hostage. (more future stories) The last two weeks have been very heavy. Other than the beauty of elevating our acknowledgement of Pluto and recognizing the existence of another ‘almost’ Earth, we have been facing … Read More

Peace of Mind

Truth: There will always be another path. We are inundated with choices. There will always be someone better looking to date, a ‘better for me’ meal to eat, a cooler place to live or travel. another t.v. show to watch, another book to read, another face product to buy, a nicer car to drive, a guilt regarding how you are spending your time (not calling a friend, not seeing a family member) This existence is inevitable. You have to let this coulda-woulda-shoulda go. Of all things, it is most destructive to your entire life. Mainly, it keeps you from living in the present moment, enjoying the present moment, feeling confident about the decision you made to reach this.present.moment. Yes, the … Read More

I wanted to acknowledge how appreciative I am for the birthday wishes and messages I received yesterday, from near, close and far off. I felt wrapped in a hug all day. I love various penmanship, too. Last week was a tough week for me personally, mainly because i was putting up resistance to changes I needed to make; yes, it’s often in our head. I’ve got to stick to my guns and chase my passions. Nothing is perfect the first time and I will re-do it till it’s right. I’m not patient with myself, either. One thing I wanted to share was how I am officially off coffee (12 days), at least till an upcoming trip to Portland, Oregon in … Read More

In Defense and Defending

BrockaPoliticsLeave a Comment

When you wax poetically arguing a case, and their response is one line: that’s a defense mechanism on their part. As if they have the better with that ‘last line in the argument’ routine, or they have the winning point, thus only requiring 1 line. So, take that! If you’re too damn busy to properly discuss this, this I believe is more fair, and I’d rather you say that. It is a Monday after all.  We give so much away about ourselves. And when we aren’t, people are left to perceive. Our entire existence, daily, is based on how we are responding to stimuli. When we aren’t in habitual mode (all those things we do as human beings: grooming-eating-working-relaxing-driving to … Read More

The Internet, The Options

The interwebs is a strange and interesting and kind of succubus of a place (from my perspective) but it is also expansive and phenomenal. It is really the infinite, the new solar system, the modern ‘what we can’t get our minds around’ literally. This is also how much it has to offer you. Reflect. You can utilize it to watch most anything from anywhere in the world or you can waste lots of time clicking on sensationalism. You can take free courses from Harvard or MIT, listen to intelligent debate via TED talks or casually view what someone from some other place, who doesn’t now you or care about you! wore to an awards show. How are you spending your … Read More
