In Honor of Fathers (and Daughters)

with 6 comments

Anna-and-Dad

I wrote this piece a couple of years ago for EcoSalon, right after my father and I had gone on a road trip together. Just a few weeks ago I was traveling across a well known route between Washington and Utah, headed to Moab for a few days of exploring red rock. Road trips have always been a tradition, and we try to keep it as such. I realize how special trips like these are, and how conscious we are about both making time for them. And that’s what a healthy relationship is: making time for each other.

I reread the essay today in honor of Father’s Day, and figured it was worth reposting. Because the special father daughter bond always deserves appreciation.

Use Your Heart: Create Love, Spread Love

with 2 comments

“The mind creates the abyss, the heart crosses it.”

-Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

It’s funny how when you need certain words, they come to you. My mother sent me this today – she’s good like that, having that motherly intuition to send me inspirational words when she knows that I need them. Sometimes they are her own, sometimes they are someone else’s.

And these struck a chord; a good reminder for a world where our brains are constantly spinning. Things may be overwhelming, but often all we need to do is to treat ourselves and those around us with kindness. Give love, receive love.

So with that, go spread some positivity this weekend.

“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.”

-Dalai Lama

Give love. Receive love. Share love. That is what we should do today and everyday.

(I also made heart-shaped scones in celebration – they’re gluten-free, vegan and super simple – just to bring a little more cheer into a gray and dreary February day. Enjoy!)
