To live with intention. With slowness. A heart that overflows and is also contained. Zen practice for me, emerging how it may, is about living ordinary life with my feet on the ground. I recognize some of the forces that bring me to this type of practice - not having a sense of a deep trustworthy place inside by which to live my life. Leaving me vulnerable to the slightest little thing. To wobbling. And somewhere along the way, I begun thinking that wobbling is how to live. And yet the paradox in wobbling is that somehow, it also can represent a kind of steadiness - the kind right before a type of falling apart - the kind that is somehow necessary for change. The losing our way, breaking apart and then coming back, different, kind of change. The important stuff we get close to and then veer away from. I’m learning to avoid backing off; cultivating a clumsy capacity to develop trust in the reality of what is and to move straight ahead - feeling the cool wash of contact. Some things I’m learning into: trying to get things to come out my way is doomed and stressful; that when I live my life as though it were a dodgeball game, there is stress, pain and loss; trying to be best is lonely and fraught with peril; that not grasping is life giving and joyful; that it is so easy to become intent on dodging pain, that I miss my life; and that I have this one chance to take care of my life - with attention. It is autumn; the sky is golden all over and everything is a reminder of the inevitable inertia of transformation.
Y'all!! I finished off almost a whole pint of Halo Top with peanut on it the other night!
I was also breastfeeding AND on a team coach training call at the same time 😂🍧 I'm sure it was a sight to behold 🙌

Do you believe LOVE is an ACTION WORD? But yet we SAYYY it all the time. Love is a strong word yes? HATE, one of popular opposite meanings of love is a strong word.
So have our actions been out of HATE OR LOVE? What does it look like to actually LOVE on someone? Or shit, yourself???
When we go trough internal struggles one can not be other then real. Real with what is and with what is going on. Putting nice pictures on Instagram is great. But realness is even more great to be vulnerable and see what is happening right here and now. Knowing the pain and where it’s from and recognizing. No more cover ups but just being real.

anyone who knows me knows i love reading. i have more books than i can fit on my bookshelf and yet somehow i manage to accumulate more. i’ve been lucky enough to cross paths with authors and aspire to be one myself one day. brain fog isn’t something i talk about much, especially because it’s hard to describe and isn’t a tangible symptom, but when my brain fog is active it’s a beast. during these times i loose the ability to comprehend what i’m reading, can’t follow conversations, and words won’t come to me no matter how hard i try. it’s an empty, hollow void where even the song lyrics that’ve been embedded deeply in my skin and bones my whole life are nowhere to be found. up until the beginning of high school i scored above average on tests. now, with brain fog, i’m lucky if i can read a couple paragraphs and remember & understand the words i just read. it’s debilitating and seems to have no end. the other day i realized that even though i’ve read all but 1 of @johngreenwritesbooks
’s books i couldn’t tell you what they were about, who the main characters are, or anything that happened except for a few major aspects. i’m living in a blurry world. brain fog is not knowing where you are, forgetting things you’ve known your whole life, and watching your abilities go down the drain. it’s scary and unstable like a wobbly first time ice skating on freshly sharpened blades on glazed Zamboni ice.

"What she was beginning to realize was that there was an ocean of support whenever she needed it." - me. I want to shout this from the rooftops today!!! There is a gal from our Fall Fit family going through some mean loss right now. I can feel the army of women sending her strength. Hoping she feels the love. #grouphug #feelthevibes #realness #connection #fallfitwomensweekend #shegetaways
