Each Sunday in April: Let’s Co-Create Resilience and Resourcefulness

Because we all need to come together in new ways, I’m starting a Sunday Burst of Strength, Solidarity and Support.

Let’s come together for 30 minutes to breathe, meditate and journal/sketch.

Bring your favorite mat, chair, notebook, and pens or markers. We’ll leave a few minutes for sharing wisdom at the end.

Up  Next: Sunday, April 12, 2020

6 p.m. Europe/CET time  | 12 p.m. ET | 9 a.m. PT

A Hundred Times a Day

I quit this walk a hundred times a day. Really. Every single day.

I have conversations in my head all the time about how much I hate what we are doing, how I want my Barcelona life back, how I was happier then.

More often than I should, I count off all the reasons I want to stop, and all the things that make me tired.
