cultivate love

We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known. ~ Brene Brown

one love

I am without a doubt one of the biggest music lovers ever. From a very early age, I was always surrounded by someone playing music or was listening to the music my parents were playing on the 8 track – yep, I said it, 8 track! Does anyone else miss the simplicity of being in…

loving kindness

So, with a boundless heart, should one cherish all living beings, radiating kindness over the entire world. Upwards towards the sky, downwards towards the depths. Omitting none. May you be happy, may you be at ease, may you be free from danger, may you be loved. ~ Buddhist Prayer
