Friday Musings: Untangle Me

Friday Musings: Untangle Me

At least once a week or so we seem to come across a quote on Instagram or an article in our inboxes that pertains to the subject of how to practice non-attachment in love. Doesn’t the concept make your head hurt a bit? I know that I try to get my mind around it, but find that it can get away from me rather quickly.

The universe places something in front of us that’s everything we think we’ve ever wanted, and suddenly our hearts leap for joy. We feel so lucky. We feel so fortunate. We think we’ve won the lottery. We look up the meaning of the word serendipity in the dictionary and our own picture is smiling back at us. Positively beaming.

Friday Musings: Empower Me

Yesterday was International Women’s Day, a celebration around the world of all that we are and all that we accomplish as women. It also marked two months since that icy night in January that changed everything for me so much. But who’s counting? I am, quite honestly. I’m so happy to report that I’m finally beginning to feel better, to feel like I’m healing, and to feel like I’ve been put back together again, both physically and emotionally. Those of you who really know me and who’ve witnessed this process,
