I have spent countless hours of my life thinking, "What is my purpose? What am I here for? What is the big, amazing thing I can do and give to the world that will give my life real meaning and positively affect the lives of others?" Many of us spend our lives waiting to find our "purpose," or waiting to start really living our lives until we figure it out.

Small adjustments, little shifts, moments of heart-opening, sunrise walks, meditation, listening to our powerful, intuitive inner voice, stillness, laughter, singing, dancing, loving and listening. Here's to understanding that whatever we are doing right now -- whoever we are with, whatever we are giving our energy to -- IS OUR LIFE'S PURPOSE. It need not be bigger or smaller than that. This right here and right now is what it's all about. :)


Last night I was alone. I knew it was coming and yet it felt that suddenly I was just here, in my house, at 7pm with nothing planned. My son was away with his dad, and my work day was over. I had this big, open, empty Friday night in front of me and I felt a drive to fill it up with something - a party, friends, dancing, singing, getting out there and doing something BIG. In the end I realized what I really wanted was hot yoga and sleep.

It was a perfect night and therein is my lesson: I need not make anything big out of anything. I can find true peace and contentment in little things and I can trust that they are enough. My purpose is to be ME and to be present to whatever I am doing, whoever is in front of me. My purpose is Right Now.

Today I woke up feeling grateful. I do that a lot, but today in particular I was beautifully aware that all is well in my life at the moment and I have nothing to want for, really. I am healthy, I have a good job, I am strong, aware and safe. I just spent an awesome night of chess, sushi and a movie with the most amazing boy I know, and today, I work, then pack to get away to a spa for the weekend with one of my best friends. What more could I want?

I have been painting like mad... it's all I can think of most days lately. It's like a dam has burst and I want to just create - create - create. :)
