January was a tough year (but we made it)

I feel at the precipice of a breakthrough. What Oprah likes to call an aha moment. Or at the very least, the time has come for a proper digestion; a moment to reflect and mine for the gold.  Although it’s the running joke now, January really did start with a kick in the rear. And as February is now inching towards March, I feel like I’m finally coming up for air.

Alas, the phoenix has risen, after what felt like a long and slow death.

Anyone out there reading Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose alongside Oprah and millions of other people around the world? Since mid-January, they’ve been doing a chapter a week, and discussing it on O’s Supersoul podcast.

Becoming an Indie Mama

This article first appeared on The Montague Reporter,
under my monthly column called “The Life and Times of an Indie Mama”

I became a single mother when my child was 3 months old. And even though my child’s father and I have worked hard to transition to harmonious co-parenting, those first few months were hard. The safety I felt being part of a nuclear family dissipated, and I was left to navigate the world of single parenthood without much guidance.
