This is the time…

This is a time, more than ever to stand directly in your humanity so that you may recognize the humanity in others. Engage in honest conversations around the emotions arising inside of you. Know you are not alone. …To see the lessons in the fear and uncertainty that surround us. To move inward and make […]

What Are the Chances?

Did you know…the odds of YOU, yes YOU being born when and where you were born, to the parents you were born to and with your exact DNA and energetic makeup is 1 in 400 Trillion. Yes that is correct…1 in 400,000,000,000,000. (Mel Robbins TedxSF Talk) Dang! That’s a heck of a lot of zeros!! […]

Get Uncomfortable

It’s time we get uncomfortable. Here is a time, recently when I allowed myself to be uncomfortable. I was walking through a tall field of dying grass with my dog, Izzee and found a place to lie down. I thought I would be protected from the wet ground by lying on an area of flattened […]

2020

From New Year’s resolutions to New Year New You programs and all the hubbub over fixing, reinventing, and creating a different version of you. No wonder there’s so much anxiety, self-hate and judgment in the world.  There is nothing to ‘fix’ or ‘reinvent’. There is no need for a NEW you. There is nothing wrong with […]

Dodge The Swatter

*The patio bee ・Tasting the apple cin muffin ・Dodge the red swatter* Don’t we all have moments of dodging swatters (input any other word for swatter that works for you) while seeking something we desire? What we need to ask ourselves is, is what we desire/want what we need? Need to grow. Need to learn. […]

Obstacles

Obstacles along one’s path are inevitable. It’s how we choose to manage those obstacles that matters. One day a while back while attempting to go hiking with my #1 girl Izee, we came across more than one in my obstacle. Obstacles that had us pause, pivot and try again. We were planning on hiking this one […]

Drinking = Norm?

Why is it that our society is so quick to judgmentally ask “why aren’t you drinking?” like asking, “what’s wrong with you (for not drinking)?” but yet we never ask, “Why are you drinking?” When did drinking become such a normalized standard? I am not even going to address the effects of alcohol on the […]

Pressure Building

After that last post…you know the one, where I committed to writing and posting something once a week on living at my edge. To be exact, I said every Monday. Well, it’s Monday and I have no idea what to write. Ugh!! Yes, I am living at my edge every day and I have plenty […]

Thoughts from the Edge

I’ve been thinking…dant dant dah…a lot lately about my ‘why’. What exactly is your ‘why’ Deanna? I have asked myself that many times in my life. Maybe not in those exact words but in some form or fashion that was what I was searching for. I have always know in my heart, that my why […]

A Stranger Connection

Last night I attended a local event. Without giving too much detail, the gist of the event was a sacred circle creating community and holding space for one another. The room was filled with a array of people (ages, colors, backgrounds, experiences. etc). Most were strangers to me.  Each of us had 2 opportunities to […]
