Welcome to Positive Practice Living

Welcome to Positive Practice Living. This is my positive place to take a minute and breathe. I share my thoughts and experiences as I try to understand the world around me. I am a writer, a yogi, a mother, a wife and so much more. I believe in the power of love and I struggle constantly to balance doing too much and then doing too little. I write about all of these things. I do what I can to intentionally find a little bit of inspiration in the everyday.

My goal is to be a published author. I am currently working on my fourth novel. However, all of them are sitting in a file on my computer getting more dusty every year.

I am ready to take that next step and figure out how to publish my work. I know that publishing is not as difficult as it once was, but I still want my work to be good.

Writing for me is a way of life, it is how I heal when I am broken and how I express gratitude when I am on top of the world. Sharing my love of words through this blog in many ways is a big step for me. And yet, I find I am drawn to this purpose for my life.

So I write and I share and I work towards publishing my novel. I hope to have more to say about how that progress is coming along shortly and eventually have a novel to share.


This section is all about the process of writing.


Check out some of my poetry here. I'm still getting used to sharing this more vulnerable style of writing again. I believe poetry has power and an amazing ability of expression, so I am trying to create more lately.


I enjoy using quotes as inspiration and writing about them. Here I'm including my articles that showcase quotes.
