Bio
I am a renegade and an outlaw. I am a dancing soul with a huge heart and a history strewn with errors and missed steps. I am a lady that did life “wrong” for more years than I care to admit. I tried to do a version of life that my culture and my family thought was valid. I failed miserably with much pain and sorrow to show for it. At the age of fifty-one I walked away from that life and ventured into one with my spirit soaring and my soul pounding the pavement of living. Here is what I discovered: We are meant to live full-on, gut-wide and happy. We are meant to know our power and beauty as human beings and to rejoice in this gift of our days on this planet. And this is what I share with others. I do it with laughter and honesty and with the insight born from my own life and learning. I do it with great love and with great passion. For this is my life and I intend to share it and dare it all the way—until I am done. “Let's be honest, open and brave!”—Robin Korth

The Hands of Time

robin korth, robin in your face, hands of time

The sun was a spotlight through the windshield. I shook my head and blinked my eyes to make sure that what I was seeing was real, to make sure that it wasn’t a trick of the light, that I wasn’t mistaken. I flexed my fingers on the steering wheel to… Read full post »

Hello, hello and goodbye

Hello, Hello and Goodbye 

As the holidays and the burgeoning New Year are wrapping their tender hours around my heart, I’m finding myself in a place of reflection, appreciation and remembering. The more years I am allowed to celebrate, the longer is my list of people who have walked beside me in my journey… Read full post »

Sleeping in the Middle of the Bed

Sleeping in the Middle of the Bed

“I’ll talk to you later, my friend,” I said as I was pulling up to the front of my house. I’d been on a call with a man named Tony. We’d been getting to know one another for the last week or so through phone calls and a bit of… Read full post »

No longer a "good girl"

No longer a  

As I finally begin to fully claim the power and beauty of my womanhood, I am also becoming aware of the subtle and pervasive “good girl” code of behavior, thinking and feeling that I was handed by my family, my heritage and my culture. The marching orders for being a… Read full post »

Choosing to go gray--a turning of my soul by Robin Korth

About three months ago, I finally said what I had been thinking for quite a while, “I want to stop coloring my hair.” My hairdresser was shocked and her friend at the next station was horrified. The first thing out of both of their mouths was, “Don’t, you’ll look… Read full post »

The Last Six Months of Dying

robin korth, huffington post, alone

It wasn’t the cold, sticky vomit beneath my cheek that woke me up. It was feeling my bladder let go and watching the yellow of my urine slowly spread across the white tiles that got my full attention. I was lying on the floor in the bathroom hallway of my… Read full post »

'Our' Naked Truth

2014-07-24-iStock_000025168849Medium.jpg 

I am an honest and brave woman who writes about her life. I write about my feelings, experiences, insights and ideas with a purpose-filled courage and openness. I recently wrote a blog about an event in my life that was extraordinarily painful and very personal. In bringing th/… Read full post »

My 'Naked' Truth

 2014-07-07-RobinMirror.jpg

Naked, I stood at the closet doors with the lights on and made myself ready. I took a deep breath and positioned the mirrors so I could see all of me. I consciously worked to remove my self-believed inner image. I opened my eyes and looked very carefully at my body. And/… Read full post »

Pushing the Clouds

Pushing the clouds

I lived a small and limited life because I thought I had to.
I believed the clarion calls of my culture and education.
I thought life was about “success” and the accolades of others.
So, my life felt anchored and already “done” before it even really started.

I have dis… Read full post »

I Refuse!

 2014-07-01-iStock_000022307042Medium.jpg

When shopping recently, I blithely told the sales person that I was "pushing 60," smugly thinking to myself that I am still just 59. She remarked, "Gee, you look wonderful for your age!" (I always hate the "for your age" codicil that is now tacked on to comments about my… Read full post »

And we are magnificent!

 And we are magnificent!

 

What remarkable pieces of life we human beings are. We are blood and bone–an earthy physiology of cells conglomerated into sinew and tissue, powered by positive and negative charges firing to move fluid and muscles in a remarkable “body” machine. The heart beats… Read full post »

This is that Moment.

 Human potential, valley at dawn, power of heart, Robin Korth, Robin In Your Face

Inside each of us is a knowing, a central pulling towards something “other.” We are pulled towards living at a fundamental, soul-burst level that we so often ignore or that we aren’t even aware of. It is the full essence of who we are tickling our hearts, questing… Read full post »

Turning Again Towards Home

Country road, going home, the journey, letting go

In May a year ago, I began a journey home--to me, to myself. I began walking the days of my childhood--days I thought done and gone--with an open heart and a searching soul. There was work I needed to do. There was sorrow, pain, confusion and loss I needed to claim and/… Read full post »

The Fear Factor

robin korth, silhouette, flowers, pink flowers, robin in your face

As I look back over the years of my life -- the good, the bad and the just plain crazy -- fear has been the driving force of so much of what I have done and what I have allowed others to do to me. These four small letters called… Read full post »

Dancing in Second Place

 Dancing in Second Place

I have walked successful and powerful. I have wandered broken and scared. I have loved and lost and moved on. But it is only now, after much work and a lot of pain that I am beginning to see and feel myself— and to deeply learn myself–with… Read full post »

It's Okay to Stop Looking

It's been a few months now since I took my profile off the dating sites and deleted those "possible" or "kinda, sorta, maybe" men from my cell phone. The last one, the one that had been riding my heart for more than a year, took more doing. I knew it was… Read full post »

The 'Rules' I Choose to Live By

Robin Korth, Bench, Grass, Outside

As my years are folding one into the other, I have come to the immutable fact that there really are no outside "rules" in life that really work. They are dictated and designed by someone else. So they reside exterior to my own soul. I must come to my own… Read full post »

We are amazing creatures with powerful souls and driving spirits. The wonder of the human being lies beyond what we see as the limitations of our bodies and a physical "reality." We are eternal, co-creative participants in a consciously loving and ever-evolving universe.

There Are No Ordinary Moments

moments, boy, balloons, red balloons, robin korth

As the days of my life become years, I am amazed at the speed with which time moves. Events and incidences, large and small, swing past and around me causing me often to blink in surprise and wonder. It is rather like watching the swirl of snow in a globe… Read full post »

We are . . .

We are each the peace-maker and the compassion-bringer. What resides in our hearts and souls drives the future. 

We each create change on this planet with our every breath and our every thought. To know this and to live this, binds us to the co-creative power that pushes the stars and calls… Read full post »

Thank you!

We can take a human body apart and figure out how all the pieces "work," but we cannot put it all back together and make it live. Just as we cannot create a flower or cause a blade of grass to grow. 

Life is powerful, amazing and an ever-trusted constant. It's… Read full post »

Moving forward

As I continue to grow and change, I am sometimes asked to make what seems a lonely choice.

I must leave what is known and safe, as I walk into the next adventure of this gift that is my life.

But as I turn my heart to the next dawn, let… Read full post »

Living the 'Dream'

robin korth, mcmansion, robin in your face, living the dream

A younger woman wore my clothes. An older woman held my soul. A teenage heart called my dreams. A mélange of ladies walked in this body of mine for years untold, unharnessed and dis-remembered. Now at last, these three of me have come together into an aching and powerful whole.… Read full post »

To love our self

The most brutal loneliness is to not know and love ourselves. We keep looking for a "soul mate" when have not yet discovered the soul within us.

No one can do this work of discovery and self-love, but ourselves.

Once we claim, honor and cherish this soul that holds our name,… Read full post »

And so it goes . . .

When I willingly and bravely tossed out about 95% of what I was taught to believe to be “true” and “important,” life became an adventure of discovery and co-creation.

But to live this way, demands that I be consciously aware and discerning. I must be willing to continually ask… Read full post »
