Museum Meditations | On Learning How to Look

Meditation doesn’t necessarily have to be sitting in silence and counting the minutes that pass. It doesn’t have to be all pranayamas and mantras. I believe meditation can be doing almost anything with your entire consciousness- being exactly where you are with an awareness of your entire self.

De-Cute-ing + Reclaiming the Word "Creativity"

What I’ve been seeing in the online world for a while now is the general watering down of the word creativity. It is floundering and drowning in flowery scripts pasted to pinterest boards, over-priced online courses, and endless hashtags.

Forces of Inspiration + The Fear of Narcissism

What with the continuance of my weird week, I wasn’t sure if I would end up publishing anything today. However, with attempted grace and resilience, I am determined to stay consistent. It seems like a lot of my blog posts inadvertently turn out to be self-reminders. Reminders to stay loving, to stay resilient, value female friends, stop fearing fraudulence. If it weren’t for the lovely comments and responses I have been getting lately, there is a real possibility that I would feel like I am talking to myself.
