  • Amen Sista!

    I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon hiking with a woman I have wanted to connect with for some time. We knew ‘of’ one another when we were in our late teens, her being a friend of my older…

  • Back to Basics ~

  • Lead the Change ~

    When I originally saw this picture on Facebook I had to share it with all my friends because I loved the quote. I googled The African Yoga Project, which I wrote about yesterday on our Sunday Svaha Spirit Series if you want…

  • Love and the Chance of Rejection

  • Actions Speak Louder than Words ~

    Sometimes you just have a feeling about someone and before you know it you’re sharing stories and a coffee with them. There is an immediate connection. When this happens so naturally it’s meant to be. I connected with a friend…

  • Navigating the Minefields of Dating!

    I didn’t know it would be so difficult to date when I became eligible. It’s much more complicated than I remember when I was younger. No wonder there is a relationship status on Facebook that states ‘It’s complicated’ because it is! I haven’t…

  • Svaha Spirit Series ~ The Spirit of Giving

    Now would be a good time to look around your house and see how much you have received over the last couple of days. It’s embarrassing really, that we receive so much, and give so little. I was very touched…
