Plant Your Garden

Spring is here! It's action time. Now you plant the seeds for what you wish to grow. What is left after the deepening Winter rumination? There were many little deaths of what was complete. You gazed upon the baron field of ties that no longer work or what has lost its usefulness with a keen and sober eye.

Now the open field is fertile. Well worn, soft and ready to receive the seeds of what's to come. Listen to the little voice that called to you from that thumb-sized cave inside your heart. What does that little voice say? The earth wants to know your dreams now. It wants to feel your fire, for the actions you take in Spring are swift and instant. It's time to be bold with your wants; with your actions.

As for me, I wait still, but with intent and with purpose. My discoveries have revealed mostly my need for freedom, but also connection. I found my passion for culture and travel in a grounded way where I could deepen my relationships with old and new friends. I visited neighborhoods unlike my own, yet walking the familiar path of daily tasks and joy seeking. More of this, please.

I want more "let's go!" more eye gazing, hand holding, laughter and simplicity. More cafes with chatter in the background, more nature trips in wild places, more conversation, food sharing and errands we can do together. More exploring on my own (thank you Waze and Google Maps) in between routines of exercise, making meals and meditation. These were my points of interest. The living life that I have read about in books.

More YES. More travel. More adventure. More play. More of me in the present moment. More and more of me. That's what I want.

When in Maui, I ate a papaya that was bigger than my head for breakfast. I found it in my friends' garden. It was sweet, juicy and delicious. I ate it all. I did not hesitate. I swam naked. In rivers, in the ocean, in the warmth of the sun. I took ecstatic dance classes and restorative yoga.

When in Paris, I walked in the rain on cobblestone, found a secret bar behind a taco place, drank coffee and champagne. I ate whipped cream, croissants and brioche. I saw great architecture, art and brushed by Anna Wintour in a hallway at the Ritz during fashion week. I practiced yoga in French.

When in the Bay Area I walked steep hills, went to a Turn On, attended an interview at City Arts and Lectures by Roxane Gay. I opened my mind, ate pizza, took spinning and hot yoga. Chatted with friends old and new.

I spent time with my friends, went to school basketball games, was served yerba mate and babysat. I cohabitated with many animals, mostly cats and dogs. I attended many funerals.

I meditated exercised and journaled daily for grounding. Everything else was up in the air.

Today I plant a seed here with you.
More please.
More of me.
More connection.
More joy.
More play.
More freedom.
More YES.
More fruit that is bigger than my head.

  5. My Top 10 Methods To Make Money Online

    Media buying is the process of buying media placements for advertising (on TV, in publications, on the radio, digital signage, or on websites). We hand pick the best revenue generating mediums particularly for your business field and target audience. If you've identified a potential publisher for your ad campaign, you can research their domain further to determine if it their audience be a good fit for your ads and if their site gets enough traffic to be a fruitful investment. For example, let's say you're a national clothing retailer promoting a spring sale on sundresses with ads going out across social media, a few on public transportation, on YouTube, and a television ad that's running five times a day across five national networks. To get started visit to learn more about the ways to can sell your android apps and HTML5 apps with Amazon or try searching for "Amazon Appstore" in your favorite search engine.

    If you know a lot about construction and are able to fix most household issues, you may be able to earn cash with your own handyman business. It's easy to become a virtual assistant to earn money online. When I tell my team about standing by the fax machine whilst talking to a buyer on a landline to check whether they sent the IO, it seems a world away from the automated world of programmatic buying. Promoting products from other companies is one of the best ways to make money online. Many major retailers will pay you for promoting their businesses on your websites and social media pages. But if you're looking to start making money online and you have nothing to invest, don't worry. Since your digital media buying agency charges you a percentage of the ad buy spend, they have no intention of saving you money.

    The average length of blogposts that rank on Google's first page is 1900 words Spend time in research and create valuable original content that can be shared and linked to. As the media landscape has co-evolved with the digital landscape, media planners and buyers have had to keep up, adopting new areas of research and tools of trade (such as data analysis tools for market research and automation tools for PPC bidding). You just need to understand that it takes a lot of effort and patience before you can start to make money blogging — no need to pay for courses. With your niche established it's time to build out your profile, create some relevant samples that show off your skills, and start pitching. However, despite the significant advantages of programmatic, Frew believes adoption will never reach 100%, because automated media buying does not suit every brand.

    Paid surveys act as agents allowing you to communicate your thoughts and opinions with companies through online surveys. There are several websites offering money to undergo online surveys, carry out online searches, and write reviews on products. Amagi MIX is a media buying platform with two unique elements. These companies connect people looking to make extra money with consumers who need their services. Anyway, I earn my first dollar online selling an ebook as an affiliate through article marketing and now its still on going as an income stream for me. There are tons of sites online that will either buy your old smartphone outright or let you list your phone for the thousands of people out there not willing to shell out $1000+ for a shiny new iPhone. No, I'm not getting paid to promote any of these and no, these websites won't make you a millionaire, but they are great for earning some extra cash. https://www.reviewengin.com/how-media-buying-will-help-you-to-make-money-online/
