I started this blog three years ago as an experiment in vulnerability and self -expression. In the beginning it felt self-indulgent to think anyone was interested to read what I had to write. And it still does from time to time. But I continue blogging as a way to show up and share my voice.
My sincere intention is to make you smile through the pain and joy that is life. I have written in journals my entire life. Writing is very therapeutic for me, and I hope this blog is therapeutic for you to read.
As a sensitive child, I grew up hearing, “You are so sensitive,” and “You take everything personally.” Now I hear, “ARE YOU CRYING?” or “You are such a sap,” or “Oh my God, you are so red,” or still “You are so sensitive.” As a kid, I thought something was wrong with me, but as an adult, I have learned to appreciate myself for who I am and to embrace my sensitivity.
Currently, my husband and I are raising our three children and our dog in Tampa. I recently finished my Masters degree in Transpersonal Psychology; the study of psychology, spirituality and consciousness. I lead women’s groups where I strive to create a space for connection and creativity. In the spirit of offering the medicine we most need, these circles are about finding meaning, healing, and the courage to show up and share our authentic voices. I also offer one on one soul-centered personal coaching sessions.
What follows are musings on various topics from my perspective as a super sensitive soul, deep feeler, and spiritual seeker. I hope for some of you what you read will strike a chord provoking feelings of belonging, acceptance, and inspiration. As I become more acquainted with my most authentic self, I hope to spark the same in you. We are all in this together. From my open heart to yours…with love and wishes for healing, peace and understanding.
