This quarantine has been wild right?
Never in my life would I have imagined that the whole world would be staying home, schools closed & everything on hold until further notice.
What a time to be alive! And what a time for our creative juices!!
Never have we all been in the same boat before.
Never have we all been forced to turn inwards, face our shadows & experience a whole new way of life.
It's incredibly exciting and exhilarating!
So much energy in the air.
Many of us are business owners.
During this time we are being forced to pivot our businesses, evolve overnight or close our doors. I'm using this time to tune in, spend time with my family, rest & realign.
I'm a Capricorn moon, and have a lot of Capricorn energy in me. I go HAM when I work. I have really high standards and execute. At the same time, I also put a lot of things to do the side. That's my Gemini. I keep it moving. I have many interests and talents, and love to be...
It's been a while. I hope everyone is taking good care of themselves.
What a crazy time. And what a magical time.
My amazing group of soulful entrepreneurs and I have grabbed this moment by the horns and are pumping out amazing content and brilliant, new ideas!
We have kept fear at bay by taking time to rest, settle into our new reality (for the time being) and collaborating.
There is a lot of magic in the air, despite the craziness.
First of all, I've been virtually organizing with my sister and it is super fun, super easy and super exciting.
Second of all, I am implementing a new program where I am offering a free 2 hour virtual organization sessions, every week, until we are on the other side of this.
I am calling for nominations for first responders, teachers, healers & community leaders! This is our time to give back to those who are constantly giving and serving others.
If you know of anyone who could use some private...
Fam! I cracked a code in my house!!! I GOT MY HUSBAND TO PUT THE SILVERWARE AWAY (correctly) WITHOUT SAYING ANYTHING!
How you might ask?
By labeling!!! I‘ve had this label maker long before I was a professional organizer. And I use it for art supplies, tools and really specific items.
Yesterday, a stroke of brilliance came to me. Don’t you love it when that happens. I labeled the silverware drawer in silence and walked away.
I heard my hubby unloading the dishwasher, like the angel he is, and smiled.
Without drawing any attention to the fact (this is crucial), I opened the drawer as he stepped away and saw this masterpiece!
Making moves in silence is one of my favorite things to do. I learned it as a little kid and mastered it teaching K-12 in alternative schools and Juvenile Detention. Which was 95% boys by the way and demonstrates the deep prejudices we have. But that’s a story for another time... #sorrynotsorry
When you want to shift a habit, and...
This year I treated myself to a new planner, the Legend Planner.
I am so excited to get back to writing, my friends. For real.
Writing helps me relax, helps me get things out of my mind, helps me create more space .
Writing allows me to think, to grow, to rest and recharge.
Writing is liberating and has been a major source of my calm, my healing and my sanity during the toughest times of my life.
As a single, pregnant mother living all the way across the country from my family, I wrote everyday.
Sometimes twice a day.
I was working the Saint Louis Country Juvenile Detention center and writing everyday.
The kids always wondering what I was doing. They knew I was getting some stuff off my chest. And they knew that I was making space - in some way, shape or form.
And they trusted me and what I did to take care of myself because O was grounded, fully expressed and at ease.
They too, would write if they got bad news from court. They would write as they got difficult...
