The Surrender to Spring "Self Care" Road Map
Get it Now

I’m a mess.

I’m busy and I sometimes use busyness it as an excuse to put off prioritizing the things that really matter: like my kids, saving money, down time, sweating. Worse, I sometimes have a hard time really figuring out what matters. I distrust most marketing, some people, and wish I my kids weren’t being indoctrinated by a YouTube-curated reality. I use the word “hate” more often that I care to admit, and I hate it when I use the word hate. I have made awful choices that have hurt other people and there’s not a damn thing I can do about it but learn, simple down, and grow from my mistakes. 

My mind can feel like my enemy, even though I meditation and all that, and my days often fly by and occasionally feel pointless. 

And. I love my life. I really do. And boy, “loving what is” a hard-earned, humbling badge of honor.

But it’s the only life I have, and it’s over half done at this point, and to keep wrestling with it and postponing happiness feels like the biggest, saddest sham of all. 

 

I am in the process of giving up the soul searching, highly consumptive quest for aha-esque, “just that one thing a day” kind of change that will “make it all better”.

Instead, I am on a journey simply to appreciate my life fully, and work at change with a gradual, bite size attitude. Life isn’t over there. It’s here.

I have found little ways to make myself content and grateful despite all that shit up there, so join me and let’s do this together.

And do what needs to be done, day by day, month by month, season by season. 

I love my life. I love my honesty. I love my choices. I love that I’m almost 50 and that each day affords a new opportunity to grow, love, and appreciate.

I am a massage therapist, a dedicated self-care and mindfulness practitioner, and I am looking for a band of heart warriors to join me. All you need is a pulse, and a will. Seriously.  Who’s with me?

in living this single, extraordinary life.

Knowing

Identify what works and do more of it. “I’m a real believer in DIY mental health. What are the factors that make the most difference? There are three: 1) Loving(warm-heartedness), 2) Knowing (awareness or mindfulness), and 3) Growing (learning that leads to lasting change for the better).”
