Lost motivation

I was the closing manager tonight and it was a hectic day, payday on top of it, doing great in sales with too little help to get it all done. The struggles of retail, including a few flying tempers, from adults… imagine that. Exhausting. I’m tired to say the least and with it I lost my motivation to write tonight. Well, I’m writing right now you might say, but originally I had planned to detail the first day of my little vacation escape. It’s almost midnight and I know that I won’t be able to do so tonight, my brain is spent. Besides that, a few minutes ago this annoying hiccups started that I just can’t shake. I’ve tried to hold my breath, drink something very slowly and distract my mind through high concentration. Nothing has helped and it is being persistent. Have you ever heard the old wife’s tale that somebody is thinking about you when you have the hiccups? My mom used to say it all the time and it’s just one of those things that stuck with me over the years. So whoever you are, thinking so intensely of me, I hope you fall asleep soon so I can get rid of this hiccups as it has become very uncomfortable. Thank you.

Looking through some old photographs, I came across a picture of one of the places we went to, except this one was taken in the summer. The most recent ones were taken with the mountains covered in snow and it is amazing how the varying seasons can alter and change not only the image but the overall feel and vibe. Both seasons hold their own beauty and I wanted to showcase the beautiful coloring underneath the snow covered pictures I will post soon. You will be the judge of which version you will like better and I can’t wait to hear your input. In the meantime and until the story escapes my mind, please enjoy a older picture of this beautiful place.


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋
