I’ve been cultivating my joy lately by Taking My Time, which is such good soul learning (and unlearning) for me. Summer is here and it’s a beautiful invitation to do what I’m always craving: slower everything, being present, practicing the art of living a full, inspired, wholehearted life.


Taking my time to plant tons of flowering perennials in my yard feels like self kindness. Taking my time on opening SoulShine & Co (it’s gonna be so good!) feels like enjoying the process all the way through. Taking my time to gather with friends and get outside and read the books and go to bed and wake up in gentler ways feels like integration of a life I really desire.


I know I talk about this all the time, but it just seems to come up over and over for me: More gentleness, Less hustle. More alignment. Less expectations (self-imposed especially). More trueness of voice. Less conditioning/programmed expression.


I suppose our learnings are really just our sacred knowings becoming integrated into daily human life here.

Thank you for your support of my new stickers and patches. Gosh, it’s been a long while since I’ve felt the kind of fire I’m feeling lately around all things KRR. It’s a lovely feeling and I hope it lasts.
