The less you try to be someone else's 
version of you, the more free you become 
in your own skin. This
authenticity is magnetic,  and will draw
more of the same to you if you stand
firm in your truth.
Always remember: your magic is in your 

first event without my child.
being out there to cheer for.
seems strange after 20 something years.
enjoy the moments.

Be a woman other women can
trust. Have the courage to
tell another women directly

Successful women have and
honest women behind do them.
Not haters. Not backstabbing

their back. Be a woman who
lifts other women.

When we were kids,
we used to say infinity plus one, 
even though it makes no sense because 
infinity has no end. But when I see
the way your eyes dance when you laugh, 
or feel how our hands fit together like
they're made perfectly for
exactly  this, I think to myself...
of course infinity plus one because even all the way to the end of forever,  
I will want one day more.

Happy Anniversary babe.

Your heart is your true compass.
But only if you allow it to express itself freely,
and only if you listen to it.
Sometimes it's barely audible, whispering it's real feelings.
Listen for these,
they are often the most valuable.

as well, but my prayer is that you
will grow into the man
you are meant to BE.

And then I learned
the spiritual journey had nothing
to do with being nice. It was about
being real, authentic.  Having boundaries. 
my space first,
others second. And in this space
of self-care being nice just
happened, it flowed not motivated 
by fear but by love.
