Summer Musings: Here we go again – body image issues.

I want to be a lightworker, so burden me with glorious purpose.

That's it, I'm done. I honestly can't decide on a look. It's a four-way tie between "cosmic river", "broody forest", "half-dreamed fairytale", and "bookish nerdy". Which one looks best tends to depend on my current mood, and I'm done trying to brand using my mood swings. Or am I? On one hand, I am trying … Continue reading I want to be a lightworker, so burden me with glorious purpose.

Shadows Grow in Open Light

Every time you make the decision to know yourself better, to become more aware, to accept yourself, to love yourself just a little more, to be more transparent, to exist with more clarity, more authenticity, and more wisdom--you become a better version of you.

I Still Believe in Unicorns: coming to love & accept my inner child

Re: Kelly-Annโ€™s Self-Love September My grade 4's and 5's no longer believe in unicorns. They are at the age where the world is starting to tell them that they have to behave like an adult.

My Self-Love Story: Afterthoughts

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7cHHLf1xxY Re: Kelly-Ann's Self-Love September I have always known that language is a huge part of my life, but it wasn't until I made the self-love video about my experiences as an immigrant and ESL student that I realized the gravity and the layers of meanings attached to the word "language"--and how those things weighed … Continue reading My Self-Love Story: Afterthoughts

How to em”body” your life more fully

When I'm tired, I am more subjected to self-criticism and insecurity. I worry about the dark circles under my eyes, the smoothness of my skin, the way my hair falls and frames my face. When people notice the semi-dead expression that I wear and the prolonged reaction of my mental workings, they will flag me … Continue reading How to em”body” your life more fully

Can you be scared of what you want? Yes.

I'm scared of what I want sometimes. Let's unpack that a little. The wanting itself is pure. My desires are simple. I know what I want, and I know what I need to do to get there, but in the back of my head, there is a tiny voice... What will people think of you? … Continue reading Can you be scared of what you want? Yes.

By the way, this way to your life’s calling…

My creative and spiritual journey has taken an interesting turn. What is my creative and spiritual calling? I've been trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together. How can I combine all that I know, all that I am, all that I love into something that I can share with the world? I've been … Continue reading By the way, this way to your life’s calling…

Hey inner critic, STFU, and if you don’t mind, GTFO

You may notice that I am swearing more in my blog posts, because I totally am! And what a relief. Let me tell you why. I am pretty sure you can relate to this self-censoring bullcrap I am about to share with you. As a person, I swear occasionally. I don't drop the F-bomb every … Continue reading Hey inner critic, STFU, and if you don’t mind, GTFO

Don’t judge me

I'm sure I am not the only one stressing over how other people see me as an individual. It's a common phenomenon in our collective human experience to waste thoughts on things you have no control over. The thing is, we all know that from theory, right? But to emotionally and mentally enter and inhabit … Continue reading Don’t judge me
