I Still Haven’t Accepted the “New Normal,” Have You?

I’ve been off my game lately. I didn’t even do new moon manifestations for the new moon in Aries that passed on 3.24. Those workout from home routines have dwindled. All of those “things I was going to learn” hasn’t exactly happened. My routine has been shaken up, and it’s hard. Doing everything at homeContinue reading “I Still Haven’t Accepted the “New Normal,” Have You?”

Social Distancing And Going Within

It’s interesting to see how this shift has affected attitudes, routines, the economy, and even our health.

You, Your Head, and the Environment

Do you ever just sit with yourself? Come home without turning the tv on? Commute without listening to your headphones? Sometimes it’s nice to just be quiet; to not depend on external sounds for comfort. Can you be comfortable when it’s just you, your head, and the environment?  Image captured by me at Bush TerminalContinue reading “You, Your Head, and the Environment”

Vibrate Higher in Nature

Did you know that the frequency of a city is lower than that of nature? It’s why people head out of town to their weekend home; there’s a pull to escape the city rush and be someplace more peaceful. It’s why we hike, swim in oceans or lakes, and enjoy nature parks. We gravitate towardsContinue reading “Vibrate Higher in Nature”

How Do You Find Your Life Path?

I keep wondering if I’m going down the right path in life. Often, I feel like I’m wandering.

I know that my confusionContinue reading “How Do You Find Your Life Path?”

How to be Present in Nature: Part II (Observe the Trees)

Appreciate trees! They’re everywhere, especially in New York City. According to NYC Parks & Recreation, over 5 million trees are growing on public and private property.

Don’t Forget How Big Your Spirit Is

That’s me. Little B in a big world. This picture reminds me of how “small” I am in this vast space. A space occupied by buildings, some big, some small, some that soar up into the sky. A space occupied by trees, fields, water, birds, and a lot more people. There’s an interconnectedness that weContinue reading “Don’t Forget How Big Your Spirit Is”

The Poison and The Remedy

Three drinks by my side. Because my emotions are running deep. How do I maintain a semblance of balance? Whiskey on the rocks, a band-aid for my pain. Green smoothie; I’m being healthy about “detoxing.” Water, to stay properly hydrated. Seems I will never be vice-free. Image captured by me.

Sometimes I just feel emotionally all over the place. More of a, “still trying to figure it out” kind of feeling. Like, “what the hell am I doing? What’s happening in my life?” kinda thing.  But something is happening at the moment, some sort of shift. I can only hope that maybe one day I’llContinue reading “Still Trying to Figure it Out”
