I get into the boat. The water immediately gets violent and stormy. Black clouds come out of nowhere, the shore is suddenly out of my reach. Tall waves crash onto the boat and rock it in every direction. I see my parents in the water, barely keeping their heads above the surface. They’re shouting at […]
Rather than rewriting my story daily, I spent the last few weeks taking it apart instead. Every day I’d take an honest look inside, pick some scary old story that triggered me in some way, then journal about it in private until I wasn’t afraid anymore. The more I did that, the less I felt […]
May I always choose to go all in, with all the courage and gratitude I can muster. May I remain soft and gentle, no matter what I find inside. Given the choice between a great story and truth, may I always choose truth. When feeling lost and overwhelmed, may I choose to let go of […]
Rewriting my story daily is one of the best tools I’ve ever had. But at one point you gotta unravel all the stories and dive deep into silence.
It’s infinitely easier for me to write stuff for kids than for parents specifically. I used to be a kid and never been a parent so in theory this kinda makes sense. I’m still trying to grasp how is it possible that I find it easier to communicate with a seven year old than with […]
My husband Artur is one of the wisest people I know. He’s almost never afraid. He actively seeks the most challenging thing to be done, and then does this. When there’s a car engine to be replaced, he replaces the engine. When there’s a feature in WordPress that is missing, he creates it all by […]

What is true? What do I need to get honest about? What am I afraid of? What’s triggering me? What am I unwilling to feel? What am I unwilling to let go of? What am I not seeing here? What am I conflicted about? What am I clinging to? What am I? *** and the […]
Fold yourself in half. Don’t move. Let the gravity do the work for you. This doesn’t sound like much. But it’s actually quite a lot. When you hold one position like this for several minutes, a lot of tension and discomfort is going to come to surface. A thousand reasons to stop will immediately cross […]
I meant to write a long post, but got pulled into some fascinating chats on Twitter instead. I don’t regret having them, but they didn’t bring me any closer to solving the problems that are on my mind right now. Here’s a reminder that while it’s great to brainstorm ideas with others, finding the gem […]
