Mentoring, speaking and supporting other awesome women!

I met Julie Ann Horvath at the Farmhouse Conference and she’s amazing! She’s not only a designer at GitHub, but she’s the Creator, Organizer & MC of Passion Projects; a monthly event where she invites badass women in tech to come in and share their awesomeness. Tonight my good friend, Laura Gluhanich (aka @lauraglu) will be speaking on Your Presence […]

1 Clarity & Intention

Today, looking in the mirror, splashing cool water on my face, I thought how everything really comes down to clarity and intention. This summer I’ve been peeling back the layers. Determined to see, like a tired child propping eyelids open with toothpicks to stay awake. But there’s no sleepiness in my hunt. Instead I’m like […]

There is great wisdom in not knowing

  I’ll never forget celebrating my 23rd birthday, and feeling like I was completely starting over and knew nothing. I certainly wasn’t starting over, as at the time I was living in a great flat, in my first stable salary job, and was working with masters, like SARK, Shakti Gawain & Dan Millman.

the little boat in my heart

I wrote this piece during Wild Writing today; a writing group I have been a part of every Monday (minus a few weeks here & there) since September 2012. Every week Laurie reads us a poem, and we get a few lines to jump off from… and then we fast & furiously free-write. Here’s one […]

Start a huge, foolish project

Written at Wild Writing last Monday, prior to launching my latest offering: Skydiving: Gathering the Courage to Take the Big Jump “Start a huge, foolish project, like Noah…it makes absolutely no difference what people think of you.” ― Rumi Spill out. Recklessly spill and make a delightful mess of it. Like a Ouija board stirring the spirits. […]

1 We were made to accomplish the easy things

There are a million little easy things that can eat up a day. This app has a number, check it. Clear it. Read it. Respond to it. Like it. Share it. Email it. Save it. Bookmark it. Make a note of it. Cross it off. Make a phonecall. Write it down. Make a mental note. Let it go. Talk it out. Pick it up. Put it away. Move it again. Water the plants. Take it off. Wave it away. Say hello. Kiss goodbye.

My Fierce Declaration

This is not about working hard. More importantly, this is not about listening to the f*cking brutal voice in my head that insists I’m not working hard enough or fast enough, and that it’s all my fault. To that voice today, I say: f*ck you. I’m onto you. And guess what: this life? This life […]

You must let it find you

Stand still. Listen. Listen to the pulse of your heartbeat, even when it lives in the small of your back, your tired feet, your tight shoulders. Be still and listen. Then move slowly, in place. Breathing into the space. The stillness. Feeling the movement and stillness become one. Letting it find you. Giving way to […]
