What is this thing called purpose?

I have been inspired to talk about this thing called purpose.  You hear people talking about it all the time.  It has become a quest for so many.  I know I myself have spent, maybe even wasted, many hours contemplating upon it. Wait a second she said wasted?  Yep, I did. I believe that there can be too much time focused on waiting to be inspired or enlightened with your purpose, that you actual miss the opportunities to actually experience or discover it. The other thing about purpose is who says there is just one? Sure Gandhi,        Read more…


Welcome to Mountain Monday

I have decided to put a fun spin on “Monday’s”, if you follow my instagram or me on Facebook you will have noticed that I have started to call Monday ” Mountain Monday “. My husband and I decided to name it that since it is the day of the week we are both off together and have been lucky enough to be able to do some hiking in the mountains.  Makes sense right? 🙂 Last week we spent time with family back in our home state of Minnesota, being as there are no mountains in Minnesota, it became Minnesota Read more…


What inspires you?

  Happy Monday! I hope you enjoy the photo above.  It has inspired me to try to inspire you! I took this photo while on the back of our motorcycle the other evening.  As my eyes were drawn to the sky my heart was filled with love.  I knew there was a huge message of love and truth. My question is what do YOU see?  I would love to hear what you see or feel when you look at this photo.  I would like to start your week with a writing prompt to spark some creativity, as well as give Read more…


Are you able to see the unseen beauty?

My last short post prompted a thought.  I state that beauty is everywhere, I capture it where ever I go…it got me thinking…some of us are blessed to live in a more “picturesque ” location than others, and some have a natural way of seeing beauty in otherwise “ordinary” things. I would like to challenge everyone to make an effort and look for beauty where it may otherwise go unseen.  Seek out the unseen beauty that surrounds us all.  Notice it in the little things, the big things, all things! This is a great way to switch the thought process Read more…


Four parts to the self that are often overlooked.

When you start to describe yourself, how do you do it?  There are many descriptive words that the majority seem to use in basic intros.  Words like male or female, short or tall seem to start off the description and then some will begin to go deeper and begin to define aspects of themselves with things like married, single, children, mother, father, pieces of what we outwardly appear to be.  This works when dealing in social situations, but have you ever really wondered what comprises the self?  Many may be thinking or saying…our experiences.  Sure our experiences help to mold Read more…


Do you sometimes feel like an observer in your own life?

  I have noticed lately that I have become an observer of sorts within my own life.  Watching, listening and at times participating.  This seems to be such a new and unfamiliar time for so many of us.  This time of transformation.  We seem to be living in the moments before something happens. Time moving forward at the same speed it has always moved, and yet I feel slightly disconnected with the flow.  This is not necessarily a bad thing…but most certainly different than the regular hustle and bustle I have been accustom to. Since everything is a form of Read more…


Scare away the dark.

How does one go about scaring away the dark? I was driving the other day and heard the words “If we all light up we can scare the dark away”.  I was instantly captivated by this song.  My mind kicked into overdrive and I started to think how true this statement actually is, in so many ways! The lyrics came from the song Scare away the dark  by Passenger.  I have added a link for you to check out the lyrics. The line in the song made me think about the many fears people have about stepping into their spirit. Read more…


Do you exercise your Fifth Chakra by voicing your Expectations?

I feel like it is time to talk about Expectations. It seems that no matter who I am talking to the subject of expectations comes up.  This one word seems so loaded.  As I write and talk I cannot help but wonder when expectations became a bad thing? Ok…maybe it is not a bad thing, but if can cause A LOT of frustration, disappointment, and down right sadness. How is it one word can do so much damage to our psyche? Let’s look at the word. ex·pec·ta·tion ˌekspekˈtāSHən/ noun plural noun: expectations 1. a strong feeling or belief that something will Read more…


It is time…time… to let it go….

        How many of us feel frozen? Sure this time of year many of us are saying uh…duh…its winter, and one of the coldest winters at that is most areas of the United States.  My own birth state of Minnesota has been under a frozen tundra of ice and snow for most of the season. But, that’s not really what I am talking about.  Like the weather…how many out there feel frozen in place, like you are waiting for a thaw?  I finally saw the Disney movie Frozen this last weekend… and it really made me think.  Read more…


Remember when you were young and you would make Valentines boxes in class….

Here it is February. February is one of those months that many either love or hate.  Much of this is because of Valentine’s Day. We are told over and over what this holiday should mean to us.  You see the message everywhere you turn, store fronts, commercials and special advertisements are everywhere. If you are like most…you get the message! BUT….are we really getting the message?  Over the years I have come to realize that I have a very unique relationship with Valentine’s Day. I look at this day as a day to really appreciate the people in my life, not just those of the opposite sex.  I Read more…
