This is me in my element.

I am a permanent seeker exploring the world of growth and change. This world, the 9 to 5 grind, the bills, the rent, the cars; all of this stuff that makes up my day to day life really has the potential to suck the life out of me. To make me want to come home and tune out at the end of the day. I refuse to give into this complacency.

Have you ever noticed when you have a chunk of unstructured time that maybe you start to feel a tiny seed of inspiration? And you know if you could just water and feed this seed with healthy nutrients and loving attention, it could grow into something truly spectacular. This blog is about me planting that seed. This is me committing myself into nourishing that seed, and hoping that a blossoming will occur. And maybe, just maybe, I can help you, dear reader, along your way as well.

I am a clinical social worker by trade. I am also a Mom to a beautiful  four-year-old boy. I love movement, dance, and yoga. I love books and music. I love my friends and my family. I am a strong believer in community and ecology. I hope you read my blog. I hope you like it. I like you.

  1. I am reading your blog now. I like it. And I like you, from where I sit. 🙂 I also have a young child (two years) and I am a clinical therapist (LPC) by trade. Interesting, huh? Can’t wait to read more from where you are…

    • Glad you are liking it! I read some more of your blog, and am liking yours, too. I read your story about love overcoming, which completely brought tears to my eyes! And, how very cool that we both have young children and work in the same field. 🙂

  2. Sage,

    Ilike you too. I identify with so much of your mission. I believe that engaging in character building experiences allows us to live deep lives. I love that you refuse to get sucked into the grind. By doing that, you are refusing to live in the “grind life”. This is so good for the soul.

    I read what you said about tuning out and I really identify with that. It can be so enticing to just curl up in bed, but I think it becomes a cycle. Nothing is really sorted out and the feeling is there the next night just the same. I have been turning to yoga and meditation as soon as my 3 year old is down for the night. I find it relaxes me, centers me and enlivens me. Next I can write or read and learn. So good.

    Thank you for liking my post. You’re the kind of woman I just live to connect with, Sage.

    With love, Amanda

  4. Thank you for reading my blog and I realize I’m in good company as a social helper. I find no greater joy than to be available for hurting individuals. Thanks Sam

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog and liking. My background is School Psychology and spend much of my early career working in early childhood settings. I hold social workers in high regard – my daughter works with families of young children with special needs.

  6. Looks like a nice blog you have here. Thanks for visiting my place.

    Continued success,

  7. Not certain how this is politely done. I’m really rather technologically virginal, and if I’m trammeling some toes of online etiquette, do let me know, aye? You “liked” a posting of mine…All this drivel is simply a thank you for your charity. Merci beaucoup. J’aime votre style…

      • We appreciate that! Of course more new material will be added every day or two, so please watch us grow! We also like to repay visits and comments to our regular readers, so we’ll be looking in on you too.


  8. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, pianocentric.com! I look forward to following yours and reading your posts. We have a lot in common– I’m in school pursuing an MSW and I love music, movement, books, family and friends, and look for inspiration in anything and everything!

  9. Thanks for visiting my blog and liking my recent post. I have a 3 yr old as well and value my privacy. I enjoy writing and always wanted to blog but only recently have been able to muster up enough courage to do so. I found your blog to be very inspiring and look forward to reading more.

    • Hi! Thanks so much for checking in. I am well. The year continues to be massive, and I have been hibernating a bit. As I read your post today, I was thinking about the busy busy stress space you are in, and thinking I have been so far away from that lately, but could totally relate as I have been there plenty! I will be back very soon with updates. Soon!

  10. Thank you for liking on my most recent posts. I’m Jude, of Neurological Alchemy. Thank you for reading, which I hope you continue to do so, and if you know others who might benefit from what I am am and will be writing (I am/was a Master Level Clinician, but the irony is, you just cant work it on yourself) as I have gained SO MUCH enlightenment, not all of it wonderful and lovely, but enlightenment and perspective all the same.

    Regardless if you send the link to others, I thank you for reading and for your support. I means a lot to me.


  11. Hey!

    Just a quick note to let you know that I’ve started a second blog. I can’t announce it on my current blog as this one isn’t for family and friends and they all read my current blog. I’ll still post at mummyflyingsolo too. This is just an as well thing. Pop by if you can.
