I once stumbled upon an enchanted door in the forest. And every single time I walked through it, I never walked out the same.
This is the door that will welcome you to the Journey Into Sacred Expression Women's Retreat if you join me on either March 9th-18th or July 6th-15th @TheYogaForest on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.
What lies beyond it, well, that's the stuff of magic and mystery. And entirely up to you <3

I came home last night after working both ✌🏾 of my jobs yesterday to find my home flooded with water—even all over our 📺 TV. 😕 truth : I wanted to cry, shut down & forget about everything else that had to be done ✅ (we’re still living in 2 places & out of suitcases) but as I gasped there were 3 sets of eyes 👀👀👀 looking at me for comfort #mamabear .
So, we got to work. I sent one kid to find towels, one kid moved the tv 📺 (we still had hope) I found the Leak & the other kid turned on the lights. It sounded like we were in a rainforest due to the water dripping from the ceiling. I said to them “were not gonna worry about why, how or when. We’re gonna do our part in cleaning and taking care of the floors because it’s someone else’s house and when someone Else trusts you with their things—you take care of it .” And we did. 2 hours later, a trip to our old house, Walmart and the gas station and we were done ✅ then we prayed 🙌🏽before bed 🛏 and we thanked God that it was fixable and that nothing else was damaged and we prayed for wisdom over the people who would come & fix it. “
This is what my health & wellness group has taught me : WE can do hard things. Like stay calm when your house is flooding and you’re tired and vulnerable and just want to sleep. Like praying and thanking God in the middle of a tough situation and telling your kids “hey stuff is going to happen ! Things break, fall apart and burst just like the pipe in the bathroom. But you know what we do? We get Towels and mops and fans and we take care of what we can and let God do the rest ! .
So it’s Saturday and I am full of joy because we’re still moving and we’re doing it together as a family. And I’m enjoying the moments with my little family that I’ll never get Back. Annnddd we will have a fresh dinner tonight in our new home 🏡 what are you doing today ? #fitness#fitnessmotivation#momlife#author#authorsofinstagram#writersofinstagram#writerslife#writerscommunity#writethestoryofyourlife#teamiyp
All my beliefs about
my knowledge of
poetry shattered when
your eyes started to
sing the most beautiful
song of how the moon
drinks the oceans love
even with so much
distance between them.
