Reality Check

When I was little I wanted to grow up to be a mother. I used to dream of a little baby in a cradle next to my bed. I had the most magical feeling of resonance about that being my most wonderful role in life, and I couldn't wait! I knew there would have to be certain other aspects in place before I could be a mom, and although the idea of how wasn't as tantalizing, I assumed I'd get used to it over time.

I was so drawn to the world of children. I never was a child immersed in the children's world and actually making merry, I was a child on the outside looking in--agreeing with the ideals in a children's world, but not having the courage to be quite so free.

So glad you are here. I am excited about this era, and my plans for this blog.

Welcome to my age of Geronimo!

I am ushering in a time in my life where each day I picture myself jumping out of an airplane and the exhilaration one feels when they finally let go, or at the least have their hands pried off the frame of the door!

The forty days of writing taught me that showing up regularly didn't necessarily make resistance go away, nor did it birth all of the content I'd been waiting for, but it taught me the power of focus, and how what you focus on expands. It taught me a lot about myself and my blocks, and just how I perce…
