Part 1: The Professional IS Personal

A 3-Part Series Welcome to a 3-part series focused on the practice of aligning your professional life with your personal life. The timing of this series is serendipitous as it was originally slated to drop this month as a 2-part series. Then we all began sheltering in place as COVID-19 emerged as a global pandemic. This caused me to pause and reconsider the following question I have been pondering since early September 2019: What does it feel like to recognize that […]

Impact: A Journey of Fierce Devotion

We’re on the other side of la Luna’s expansion—Full Moon in Leo, which is the 6-month container and halfway point to the New Moon in Leo in early August. I intentionally planted seeds of courage by sharing the following quote with the organization for which I have devoted the majority of my work time—Lighthouse Community Public Schools… as we launched the 2019-20 school year and year 2 of our 5-year Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Commitments. The main initiative—a yearlong […]

Re-Activate: Love in Action

Becoming Mama J…

Exactly a year ago today… A fire was set to my life as I knew it. Shocked. Betrayed. Heartbroken. Simultaneously knowing, deep in my soul what had been activated I did not have the courage to do. And, now I can see the gift in saying the thing that had not been said… Our marriage is over.

Thoughts on Charlottesville

Because it must be said… Because your words and actions matter… Because it’s not business as usual… • Despite peacefully falling asleep with JJ last night, I was startled awake. I was called to read the various perspectives, to take note of who has spoken and who chooses to remain ? Then I couldn’t sleep. • I share this not to guilt or shame you into action, yet simply to publicly share your words and actions matter. I’m leaning into […]

Identity: Why the focus?

As Dimensions Shift, Embracing Love & Compassion:  A Flashback to August 2014  “If you bring forth that which is within you, what you bring forth will save you.” ~ Gospel of St. Thomas I can no longer deny or postpone the fact that my job is ending in two and half weeks, transitioning me to full-time self-employment. While I’m trying to enjoy these last weeks of perceived “stability” with the freedom and responsibility ahead, I’m also struck with the simultaneous transition […]
