This Grateful Season – Trust

This year I picked “trust” as my One Little Word. Trust: (verb) Believe in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of. This little word has taught me more than I ever imagined. It wasn’t until April, 4 months into 2012, when things started to kick in. Then in June there was a shining example of it […]

Keep On Trusting

Today started out well enough. I took a long walk with the doggie, got ready for work, and popped over to therapy. The session went well, circling the topic of using the GTD process to keep on top of the tasks piling up. For instance, “send out e-vites for three different events” felt like the […]

Trusting Equals Serendipity

I am loving Danielle Laporte’s Fire Starter Sessions, mostly because she took the words right out of my mouth. DL is way more badass than me, but part of me wishes I had this book 2 years ago when I started my journey. The other part of me knows these truths wouldn’t have rang true […]

#Trust 30 – Days 8 & 9 – My Own Compass

Busy here. New job has and I’m running around like crazy. It’s not the “overwhelmed busy”, but that I’m off my game. So much to organize, get on top of, and learn, even down to the commute and how to make sure the dog is OK with our new routine. Adjustments. Throw in a Death […]

#Trust30 – Day 5 – Alaska

Still going strong, though it’s only Day 5 of #trust30. Weirdly enough, today we got up early (and full of crankiness of my part) to attend one of those time-share presentations. The gist is you sit through a one-on-one spiel where they try to sell you a time-share property and in return you’re “gifted” a […]

Current Challenge – Day 4 – #Trust30

While I’m doing well overall, there is a lot of chaos going on in the form of a few people dear to me being in the hospital. This is the time that I hate being 3000 miles away from home. And this is when I feel especially guilty about what I consider my own “challenges”. […]

The Me That I Know I Am (#trust30 Day 3)

Today’s #Trust30 prompt is difficult. By asking me to explain a deeply held belief I share separate from my family and friends, I’m essentially forced to figure out what I believe 100% of myself. It seems that I don’t really think about what I believe as it doesn’t relate to others. But here is what […]

#Trust30 – Day 2 – Today in 1 Sentence

I am participating in a lot this month – working on keeping a lot of creative-based projects to keep me grounded. #Trust30 is here. Daily prompts based on Ralph Waldo Emerson’s writing. 1book140 is here. Twitter book club, reading Margaret Attwood’s Blind Assassin. Vein of Gold. After finishing the Artist’s Way, I need to keep […]

Big Three Oh List – Update

Last year, I made a Big Three Oh List. In my last week at 30, I thought we’d check in. Spoiler alert – I only accomplished 1/2 of the list, and that’s being generous – but I still had an awesome year. Learn to make a latte at home, or a cold brew, or something […]


Los Angeles’ best small venues to catch music in. Jill on trusting in basic goodness: I am already whole, all of us are — this is basic goodness. I am not a problem to be fixed, or a project to take on, and neither are you, nor anyone else. You are not — no matter […]
