Tiny Lessons: Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

Creativity is a relationship between a human being and the mysteries of inspiration. The Universe buries strange jewels deep inside of us and then stands back to see if we can find them. Mother who wasn’t having a minute of her drama – ‘argue for your limitations and you get to keep them.’ Fear, fame, etc. anything will become boring when you have too much of it. If I relax my fear will relax, so I make space for it. Ideas are seeking to be made manifest, you’ve got to catch them when they come to you. The tormented artist, […]

Seven Deadly Sins Remix – Pride

We’ve come to the final sin and the final way to add some enjoyment (or in this case self-love) to your life. All of the other posts: envy, wrath, gluttony, sloth, lust, and greed. It might just be me, but every time I hear the word pride I immediately think of Keira Knightly and Matthew MacFadyen’s rain-drenched confrontation in Pride and Prejudice. The definition of pride is a high opinion of one’s own dignity, importance, or merit. In the negative biblical sense pride means being too proud to admit fault or ask for help, thinking you are above others, or being so […]

Seven Deadly Sins Remix – Greed

This post is number six in a series on examining these negative biblical traits and coming up with ways to use them for positive inspiration instead. Previously: envy, wrath, gluttony, sloth, and lust. Gordon Gekko summed up a big trend in the 1987 movie Wall Street when he said “greed is good.” Bernie Madoff has since swindled people out of billions of dollars. Celebrity culture, reality shows like My Super Sweet 16, and social media have all created a new material world. Credit card and student loan debt have skyrocketed and there is almost no education to help us figure out how to properly plan […]

Seven Deadly Sins Remix – Lust

This post is number five in a series on taking old school biblical sins and mixing them up to find inspiration for loving our lives more. See the previous posts here: envy, wrath, gluttony, and sloth. I know this is a wildly complicated topic the world over, both how women’s bodies are scrutinized and commodified, as well as the widespread attempts to shame and control women’s sexual desire. I’m doing my damndest to lead my small revolution by learning how to view my body in a positive light and to own my sexuality aside from anyone else’s opinions. I think […]

Seven Deadly Sins Remix – Sloth

This post is number four in a series on flipping these negative traits around and using them to make some small but powerful changes in your life. To see the other posts, click here: envy, wrath, gluttony. We’re not talking about adorable, slow motion animals here, we’re talking the biblical sense. In Christian morality sloth is all about laziness, apathy, and a wasting away due to lack of use. Today we are pulling a 180 and embracing sloth to deeply invest in our own self care. Do you ever look at cats and go, “that’s the life”? Sleeping all day, only […]

Seven Deadly Sins Remix – Gluttony

This post is the third in a series on using the Seven Deadly Sins for inspiration to spice up your life. The first two posts were on envy and wrath. Enjoy! Gluttony: a limitless appetite for food and drink. Overindulgence to the point where one is no longer eating just to live, but rather living to eat. I don’t know about you, but I have the problem of low resistance to delicious food combined with a tendency to pack my life so full that I become stressed very quickly. Therefore, I eat cheap, easy, comfort food and sugary, caffeinated drinks and usually […]

Seven Deadly Sins Remix – Wrath

This post is the second in a series on using the Seven Deadly Sins for inspiration to build your dream life. To see the first in the series on envy, click here. Enjoy! When you hear the word “wrath” what do you think of? I think of Greek Gods fighting to the death against enormous Titans (I’ve definitely seen Immortals one too many times). I think of road rage on the 405 during rush hour. I think of Ronda Rousey beating Bethe Correia. Wrath means a strong, stern, or fierce anger. Anger is traditionally considered negative, but today we are […]
