Little One

Can you hear me little one, tucked safe inside? Can you hear my heart beating? Can you feel me breathe for us? Do you dream of a world outside where I can hold you? A world where you hear me clearly and not through the muffled, rushing sounds around you – an ethereal quiet that […]

Oola: My Journey of Self-Discovery and Balance – June 16: Anger

I am not perfect, no one is. I am not an expert. This is just me as I make this transformative journey toward balance and peace in my life. We are told that being angry is not a good thing. From advertisements to self-help readings, we are told that we should be happy. However, as […]

Oola: My Journey of Self-Discovery and Balance – June 13: Courage

My preferences are likely to bleed through the sentences. This is my journey after all. Faith is a strong belief and trust […]

Oola: My Journey of Self-Discovery and Balance – June 9: Field

What is your field? What do you do to support your home and family? The two key words here are “support” and “your”. Did you notice that or did you assume I was talking about a job or society’s definition of home and family? Support might mean that you are working outside the home. Support […]
