Finding Our Best Selves (in the age of 24hr news)

August 15, 2017By elisjamisonSpirituality

I’ve gotten really lost. Lost in the twenty-four hour news cycle. Lost in social media updates and arguments. Lost in utter despair because everyday seems like it is a battle for our very lives and/or the freedoms that we hold dear. I’ve lost my laughter (that used to come freely but now only in bits … Read More

Our Valentine’s Problem

February 15, 2015By elisjamisonUncategorized

I think deep down everyone kind of hates Valentine’s Day.  From when we were little kids, sweating the possibility of rejection from our crush & hoping that we would get as many valentine’s as we gave, to adults who no matter what we do, always feels like we are chasing our elusive tails.

AND THY NAME IS ANXIETY

January 23, 2012By elisjamisonUncategorized

I’ve had anxiety on my mind (or in my mind) for the last few weeks.  It seems to be a pervasive theme amongst my friends.  A joking Facebook quote about the negative impact of coffee on mild anxiety brought everyone out of the woodwork expressing empathy.  Yes, they have anxiety too and lots of it. … Read More
