Drive, Motivation, Desire: On Hunger

Drive, Motivation, Desire: On Hunger

  Here is part 3 in this series on Hunger. (Here’s Part 1 + Part 2) Hunger as desire + drive. I can’t think of anything I’ve ever done that wasn’t somehow rooted in the desire to prove to my dad he was wrong about me. Every job, every relationship, every choice I can thinkContinue Reading

Love Might Not Be *All* You Need, But Good Grief It’s Important: On Emotional Hunger

Love Might Not Be *All* You Need, But Good Grief It’s Important: On Emotional Hunger

Last week, as part of an ongoing invitation to overhaul your definition of hunger so we can develop a more allied, than adversarial, relationship with our own hungers, I wrote about physical hunger. This week I’m writing about emotional hunger. In nutrition school I learned an interesting way of conceptualizing nourishment as “primary and secondaryContinue Reading

Not Starving: Physical Hunger

Not Starving: Physical Hunger

Last week I talked about overhauling your definition of hunger from being shameful, flawed, and unattractive to being an ardent mechanism for knowing what is the next right thing to do.  I mentioned three main presentations of hunger: Physical, Emotional, + Drive. Here’s the next installment , where I say more stuff about physical hunger.Continue Reading

Invitation to Overhaul Your Definition of Hunger

Invitation to Overhaul Your Definition of Hunger

  We don’t want to be thin because thinness is inherently life-affirming or lovable or healthy. If this were true, there would be no tribes in Africa in which women are fat and regal and long-lived. There would be no history of matriarchies in which women’s fecundity and sheer physical abundance were worshiped.  We wantContinue Reading

Are Depression + Anxiety the New Normal?

Are Depression + Anxiety the New Normal?

  Depression and anxiety might be the new normal for people who feel.   I say that without having done a scientific study, this thought is coming exclusively from my own experience with my life and my contact with clients.   Seems like when living in a culture of fear and diaspora, depression and anxietyContinue Reading

Peace in the Shark Tank

Peace in the Shark Tank

The last couple of weeks have felt like living in a shark tank. Everything that could go wrong has. All the most uncomfortable, unsettling things have come up. Every interaction has been anything but simple. I launched a product last week that hadn’t properly gone through the editing process (my bad) and I had toContinue Reading

How To Be Wildly Helpful To Your Local Single Mother

How To Be Wildly Helpful To Your Local Single Mother

I rarely do PSA’s, but this has been on my mind a lot. Maybe it’s because my son is a teenager now and his autonomy is giving me more space than I’ve had in forever and I’m finally coming out of the great fog of trying to do everything all the time nonstop, and I’mContinue Reading

Prison Work + The Truth of this “Altruism”

Prison Work + The Truth of this “Altruism”

    When I was indicted for a federal crime (conspiracy to distribute five thousand hits of ecstasy) and facing a probable prison sentence, I was scared.   Fear was my primary feeling, but not because I was afraid to be shanked or raped or slapped in the yard. I was afraid that my babyContinue Reading

(Not) Juggling it All

(Not) Juggling it All

Recently a dear old friend commented that he admired how I “juggle everything” and that he would love to get together while he is in town and learn how I do it all. I adore him for that. I adore him, period. I’ve known him for over ten years. We met at a yoga retreatContinue Reading

#KeepHopeAlive : volume 1

#KeepHopeAlive : volume 1

Through self care, inspiration, exploration, listening, and action, the most important thing you can do is to be a YOU-SHAPED space of hope in the world. What arises from that hope is going to be the future we want versus the future that we fear. So, here is a compilation of beauty and positivity thatContinue Reading
