Peppermint in the Summer

It's been record-breakingly hot here in NorCal, like over 100°F from sunrise to sundown HOT. So I came up with this easy peppermint coconut drink to chill and enjoy.

Try This Single Serving:

  • Ice cubes
  • Coconut milk
  • 1 drop of Peppermint Essential Oil

Stir and enjoy!

Creator

I want to know if there's a part of your soul that rises again and again no matter how many times it's been told to be quiet, shut down, or go somewhere else.  

For me, it's always been creating. Making stuff. That part just won't go away. 

Put me in a place long enough and I will create something new out of, in it, and around it. With a cherry on top.

Hi, I'm a Creator. What are You? :)

The Warrior Goddess

The warrior goddess comes to me with ease. The warrior goddess is looking for a travel companion to the deepest parts of herself. I become the one who takes her there while she takes everybody else.

I don't have to convince her of anything. She already knows. She needs me as her companion and a source of reassurance on her journey.

Meditation

"We found long-term meditators have an increased amount of gray matter in the insula and sensory regions, the auditory and sensory cortex. Which makes sense. When you’re mindful, you’re paying attention to your breathing, to sounds, to the present moment experience, and shutting cognition down. It stands to reason your senses would be enhanced. We also found they had more gray matter in the frontal cortex, which is associated with working memory and executive decision making." - Interview with Harvard Neuroscientist

What more needs to be said?

 

Peace Out

Coming up to just one more day of work as an office manager for a small corporation, a specialty dental practice to be exact. And having had a taste of what Freedom is, I can't help but feel so incredibly grateful to have all the things I need and more to be able to live a life of Simplicity.

I've learned that the simple things in life like taking naps, doing yoga, eating mindfully, and meditating are invaluable appointments with ourselves as human beings, and that the quality of our living depends not on how much we can accomplish while we are living but on how often we take the time to check in with ourselves. 

I've come to really enjoy the extra time to consistently check in with myself, to honor what feels right, purposeful, and impactful. In taking the time to assess how I actually feel, I get to be way more productive in the world as a humanitarian than I ever have been as a human hamster on the 9-to-5 wheel.

Peace out, 9-to-5. Thanks, but no thanks. Never going back to that again!
