Straight Outta My Twenties

Dear 20 year old Sam, First, let me tell you that you my dear are Pure Fucking Magic! You will forget this at times but it's okay because it will lead you back home. There are about one thousand things I could write here already, but I’m going to try to stick with what I … Continue reading Straight Outta My Twenties

Before I Turn 30

I know that I’ll have moments where I stumble and misstep. From time to time, I’ll surely still experience the old beliefs that I should be more than I am, or that parts of me are shameful enough that I should choose to hide, or that I should have a better idea of what my future will hold.

There is no ending point. We never really become. Adulthood doesn’t mean things stop getting hard. It doesn’t mean no self-doubt. It doesn’t mean sturdy ground.

At times, I catch myself being preachy with clients and falling into believing that I have some special knowledge about life. I believe that I’m expected to pass along little gems of wisdom in sessions as if I know what life … Continue reading People Are Never Perfect

Ride the Wave

Like the ocean tides, life has a natural ebb and flow . There is always a beginning and end , a high point and a low point . Many of us, most of us, carry the unspoken belief that we’re supposed to feel amazing all the time. As soon as we feel less than, our … Continue reading Ride the Wave

Human BEing

We all need to learn to sit with our own boredom for the world to become quiet enough that we can hear ourselves. It is only when we are surrounded by nothing that something comes alive on the inside.
