About Living from the Heart ~

We live by stories passed on for generations about who we are
and where we should be going. But these stories don't always let us live our best lives, because they aren't our personal legends.

Living from the Heart is about discovering our own stories. Choices with Intention. It is the journey to be true to ourselves and to dare to be all God and the Universe made us to be.

For a Mother

To all Mothers

I understand and salute you
One day of the year is NOTHING
compared to the other 364
that goes by with large doses

of being misunderstood
...despite good intentions
of endless complaints
...despite best efforts
of lonely fears
...so everyone else will stay brave
of unfinished self expressions
...because little hungry tummies can't wait
and baths and sleep mean the world to a 2 year old.

Unsung heroes
for the most part..
but more than praise and thank you,
more than anything..
we would like to be GIRLS again
carefree and pretty
and for everyone to
put down all their expectations.

Just because i am MOM
does not mean i am no longer ME
i'm still a girl at heart
JUST a GIRL..at heart ~


  1. This post reminds me of the days i used to write poems.. kinda miss and some of them were pretty good but well i lost the writing mojo.. anyways keep up the great work.

  2. Sometimes...there are phases in our life when we don't write..it means we aren't as in touch with out hearts..
    I guess you need to find a space in your life where you can get back in touch again ...
    I like reading your writing..would love to read your poems too
