Seeds of a Grandmother
"At first there was just one and I could see it only if the light caught its reflection at just the right angle. The appearance of the first was followed by a second and a third. I’m not sure why we call them grey — they’re actually anything but grey. In my eyes, they’re silver and shiny and more luminous than all the other strands of hair..."
WHEN YOU'RE JEALOUS OF THAT GIRL ON INSTAGRAM
"We’ve all experienced looking at another woman’s website, pictures of her beloved on Facebook or shots of her tropical holiday on Instagram and turned a little green with envy. What does she have that I don’t? Her workshops are sold out, her children are beautiful, and she looks happy. What am I doing wrong?
It may be tempting to angle your game so it looks more like hers so that you can get more of what she has. When you do this though, you negate your own soul sauce—that special magic that only you can bring..."
FOR MY SISTERS
"Do you remember what it was like to be in this body before ‘they’ taught you to hate it? Before you were sold the idea that you’re broken, imperfect, beyond repair, and in need of some diet, product, workout, or surgery to be acceptable? Are you ready to remember and reclaim the divinity of this female body?"
GUARD YOUR TREASURE: ON LEARNING TO BE DISCERNING
"It’s easy to make ourselves wrong for loving too quickly or too much when our heart gets broken. We think, “Why did I let that person in?” or “Why did I trust so easily?” Reproaching ourselves for being trusting or open is senseless. It’s actually a gift to be able to live open and to see what’s loveable in others. As with all gifts, however, there is a dark underbelly that’s built into this kind of unconditional openness..."
SOUL STORIES: IS LIFE REALLY ABOUT GETTING WHAT WE WANT?
"Is life really about getting what we want? I used to think it was. Prompted in part by the belief that I was in control, coupled with the New Age brainwashing I used to subject myself to, I thought, like many, that life was about getting what I wanted. I thought I knew what I wanted, of course, and that I had a good grasp on what would make me happy..."
THE WILDERNESS CALLS TO THE WILD IN ME
"The wilderness calls to the wild in me.I long for rain that falls, not on window panes, but on my skin as a blessing of renewal.
I long to hear the wind, not for an hour while I take a walk, but all night long as it whistles through the trees and serenades my dreams.
I long to build a fire and to feel the primal sanity in that, to huddle around its crackling warmth instead of around a computer screen, and to let that fire be the heart of the night..."
LEARNING TO LIVE IN THE UNKNOWN
"We don’t know for sure. Know what, you ask? Anything, really.
At some point, that can actually become more of a relief than a problem. When I get real with myself, I realize that I don’t really know what’s going on. I don’t really know what it’s all about. I don’t know why things happen as they do or what’s going to happen. There’s a bend around which I can’t see. That’s actually some kind of blessing..."
