Grace, please quiet my pacing mind and help me stay in one place.
Please bring me back every time I drift.
Help me remember that what I seek is found only on the other side of honest work.
Grace please help me remember to go slow
for it is only when life slows down that I see the details
It is the details which tell the story
Grace please help me remember - I am not inventing anything.
I am merely a witness who records what she sees.
Help me honor what I see by writing it down.
Thank you for love and fear.
They keep my senses sharp and my soul singing.
Help me honor the mountain of journals which have brought me to this morning.
Grace, please sit with me while I tell my story today.Read More...

Daily life can bring with it a lot of stress. We get caught up in our obligations to work and our family, so sometimes it’s hard to make time for ourselves to recharge - but that’s exactly what we need to do on a regular basis. Finding an activity that hits your internal “reset” button so you can feel rejuvenated and ready to take on the daily grind once again is necessary not only for coping with stress, but for living a healthy life - whether it’s meditation, yoga, going for a run, or swimming some laps. For me, that activity is hiking.Read More...
In a psychological context going back to early or past behavior is termed regression. Originally Sigmund Freud classified regression as a defense mechanism for coping with stress; where one reverts to earlier, more childlike patterns of behavior to cope.Read More...
