Reexamine All You Have Been Told

When you feel really good, you’re almost afraid to talk about it, like you’ll jinx it. It takes great effort to maintain wellness, and you cherish this place with a strong reverence. Health is sacred. There are so many souls—both with and without food-related illnesses—that don’t feel well. And if you’re young or one of… Read More

A Beautiful Place of Health, Healing & Happiness

After much trial and error, I feel like I’ve landed in a beautiful place. Wellness, healthy food, peace and beauty are all inextricably linked. They cannot be considered separately. Eating healthy, physical activity, a positive outlook, getting rest, and working on inspiring, purposeful projects are all integral to each other for happiness and well-being. It’s… Read More

Tendership

Tendership is a word I made up myself. It describes a tender friendship that brings soulful wellness.

It talks about “emotion… Read More

How the West Won My Heart

It began as a love affair with Spaghetti Westerns, then turned into a serious and lasting romance when I traveled to Vail, Colorado in 2015… sunshine, mountain air, wide open spaces and beautiful faces! I’d been dreaming of another trip out West for MONTHS. Photos of bison would make me tear up. Road trip songs… Read More

Sweet As Tupelo Honey & Good As Gold

Light gray with a touch of yellow… that’s the color that surrounds you after a hurricane visits, then leaves. Branches down, bits of grass stuck to your windshield and car doors; everything is weathered like two years have passed and it was just 24 hours. When the sun comes out again after a big storm,… Read More

Why Inspiration Matters

About a year ago, I wrote this post about inspiration and why inspiration matters. It began with happy memories of the pop culture years of the late ’60s and how they kept popping up throughout my days—as either a wistful thought or nostalgic feeling. This seemed too much of a coincidence. I wanted to investigate… Read More


reflection sacred spaces poem by jet widick

Sacred Spaces

My favorite time of day is First Light—the time in early morning when light first appears and before the sun rises. When you’re all alone in the morning, you’re able to consciously embrace the calm and the quiet all around you. This silence allows you to focus on self-reflection and opens you up for inspiration.… Read More
