Mindful Mondays

Reading Time: 2 minutesOne of the best things I’ve ever done for my Self / business / whole-damn-life, is to institute what I’ve come to call Mindful Mondays. The first day of the week is devoted entirely to journaling and inner work and the weekly nest-maintenance things like laundry, floors and bathrooms. The inner work sets the tone for the day,  which makes the housekeepery become an extension of the inner work. In other words, literally cleaning away the ‘debris’ of the previous week, and deliberately imprinting my thoughts and intentions for the following week in-and-on my immediate environment. Housework transmogrifies from chore into ritual. It’s magical. Having no appointments or outside-focused obligations means that the whole day becomes sacred and sublime. Just me and my home and my heart and my hopes. Consequently, the rest of the week is potently productive because right from the beginning, I’ve curated the energy and strategies to ensure I’m sovereign and focused, rather than scattered,so work gets done and deadlines met. I know it’s a luxury to have Monday mornings at my disposal – if you work outside the home, or have kids, it’ll take some extra planning. Sunday evenings work just as well. Let’s get deeply practical … How could this look for you? You may decide to spend half an hour on Sunday evening or Monday morning after the kids...

I needed to be sure my store was stocked with just the right unique and distinctive gifts that would appeal to my customers...

You and I both have failed Cyntoia

Reading Time: 5 minutesChildren are the most marginalized population on the planet. That may sound like a shocking statement, but we fail them, over and over again. And they depend on us adults. They come in the world defenseless and completely dependent on us and we abandon them. We control them and tell them what to do. We indoctrinate them and if they do not follow our wishes, we punish them. They cannot vote. We do not allow them to have a say so. We spend all our energy indoctrinating them into how we want them to be. As much as we revere youth in this country, we do not revere childishness or children.
