Becoming: Creating from our Power and Embracing our Choice

We are being faced with no choice but to be so very present, to see only the truth and/or more of the truths that affect each and every one of us. Some more directly than others.The main theme the Universe seems to be bringing to us at this time is a big, giant mirror to look deep into exactly who we are, where we come from, what we’re made of, and who we can become. Let’s get coherent, shall we?The current time is an opportunity like no other, to make a personal, intentional choice to become a better person. To upgrade the internal and external version of ourselves. If each one of us makes that choice, humanity will have the greatest shift towards a better world and a better life. Let’s do this!For me, personally, the need for a sharp social and global shift and great change is crystal clear and proudly loud. [...]

A Perspective From Within a Black-Woman-Owned Business Life (and ‘Magical Unicorn’ at My World Registry!)

From the time I can remember I’ve always been exposed to the idea that we as human beings have the power to create the world we want. When I first began learning yoga, I experienced a huge version of that in my body. It felt like I had the power with in to be present, aware about my body, my mind, my breath, and my whole experience of my life. While I was having this huge transformational experience on and off the mat, I was still experiencing a sense of not belonging.Even with in the yoga community after 10 years of taking classes in NY, New Orleans, and TX, I hadn’t met one instructor that wasn’t white, able bodied, and affluent. This was a huge problem because not only was there a lack of representation but there was an underlining, unsaid, and reoccurring message that made me feel unwelcome to that world.When I [...]

Change is Inevitable and the Essence of Human Nature

It's hard to picture anyone not having been affected by the Coronavirus global situation. COVID-19 has affected not only businesses but, most severely, us as human beings. We’re all in this together. My hope is that we continue even more, to rediscover ways to unite rather than separate, love rather than rage, grow rather than stagnate or shock, and learn rather than devolve and give our power to anti-natural diversions. As the main human behind the My World Registry experience, I’ve been shaken hard by the shutdowns, cancellations, reductions, and new home-based jobs I didn’t have before (homeschooling, anyone?) I have all the natural human limitations on the amount time and energy I can dedicate to the variety or tasks I’m responsible for. At this time, prioritization has been my Boss. But my true mentor and expert teacher continues to be life itself. By not giving in to fear and despair in the [...]

Why Celebrate?

Reflecting on life the past year, it’s hard not to think about the highlights, the events that made a difference, especially the ones that were life-changing, transformational or meant a step forward in the direction of our goals. No matter how little or how big, every single step and every single achievement calls for some expression of celebration. Music, dance, family, friends, freedom, unity… they are all ways of celebrating. And for all the highlights and events that took place in 2017 that were tragic, it is both radical and necessary to think that the victims would want us to remember not the sadness of how they died, nor spend the rest of our time on earth living in fear. They would want us to remember the happiness they enjoyed and shared while they lived. They would want us to pursue happiness, earnestly because, life is short! Life is worth every second and [...]

The Gift of Enhancing your Living Space to Create a Lifetime of Experiences!

Experiences come in all shapes and sizes. Our individuality defines our desired experiences and what we take from those experiences should enhance our life and make our personal world a better place. While some may want to trot the glob finding themselves, others (like me) are ready to find themselves in their shared family space. As a mother of two young, imaginative and inquisitive children, I consider the time inside our nest a golden time to bond. Our home is an experience hub where we inspire our kids to garden, create art, learn about bugs, preserve the planet by recycling and composting, eat three healthy meals a day, bake sweets for those we love, become avid readers, use their imagination, talk about feelings, absorb stories of our past, and honor the ritualistic family dinner. We are an active family and our kids get to have so many amazing experiences; music festivals, museums, art [...]

Choosing Meaningful Gifts

Digging out of a Fun Size candy bar-induced stupor and gearing up for the holidays has begun in earnest. With Halloween in the rearview, it’s now time to turn our focus to Thanksgiving, naturally, and the winter holidays creeping ever deeper into November. Some of us relish this time of year, with the delicious food, get-togethers with friends, decorations, travel, and traditions. For others, even the sight of that list causes a breakout of hives and a mild panic attack. It’s a strange mix, this unnecessarily complicated blend of joy and stress.Why do we feel this way about something that is supposed to be “the most wonderful time of the year?” How did it get this way? Maybe you remember the Peanuts gang decrying the commercialization of Christmas during the annual viewing of “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” While the message is one familiar to all of us today, keep in mind that Charlie [...]
