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. “Life is Always an Adventure. Live YOURS!”—Robin Korth

To my children

The gift I choose to give my children is a complete and honest version of me. I must let my children see all of me--my faults, my failings, my winning and my losing. The gift I can hand to them is my full humanity, my joys and sorrows--the reality of my life.

I choose… Read full post »

On this day . . .

On this day . . . let us open our hearts to the newness of life that always awaits us. Let us willingly reach from inside towards life with soft eyes and non-judging souls. Let us extend our hand in courageous love to those around us.

Let us each know that we are never alone.… Read full post »

A Quality of Life

Humility: What a wonderful quality. What a soul-blessing thing. Humility is willingness and silence. Humility is open-mindedness and cooperation.

Humility is seeing ourselves in others. Humility is empathy in place of judgment. Humility is claiming our own thoughts, emotions and actions with quiet g… Read full post »

Open Sesame!

When I come at life from a purely "logical" stance, I have screwed myself into limitation. For "logic" is bound by what we know to be real using our current understanding of the laws that run the universe.

When I come at life spirit-wide and imagination-glowing, I open the door to possi… Read full post »

Life is ALWAYS an adventure!

Life is ALWAYS an adventure!

 

I so love this adventure of living. Every time, every single time, when I reach out and ask that life pull me further into the learning and understanding of who I am and what it means to be fully human, it comes roaring back to me offering… Read full post »

What do I see?

I see beauty and power. I see courage and curiosity. I see willingness and laughter. I see questioning and a drive to truth. I see humility and an open mind. 

 

I see a heart that aches for meaning and a ground upon which to stand. I see a mind of sparking imagination and… Read full post »

We're never alone

The pain of watching someone we love do their damnedest to destroy their life is heart-breaking.

And this broken heart stings and grinds. The pain is a gut-pounding burden. So where the hell is the "blessing" here?

The blessing is that my heart is capable of great love. And… Read full post »

Life--a matter for question

As a child and a young woman growing up, I was never taught to search for my personal truth. I was never given the gift of understanding that all that stands before me is subject to question and discernment. I know this now. 

 

That all in my life is up for grabs. I must… Read full post »

It is always ours . . .

Life does not make us. We make life. Life pulls and pinches us to celebrate what we are given--our bodies and minds, our hearts and souls--with gratitude, grace and courage.

We are asked to set ourselves to the task of realizing our power and our beauty as we go about… Read full post »

Back at ya!

Life is not about being "called" to do things. It is not about waiting for a voice or an intuition to smack us upside the head and say, "Wake up, Bozo. Turn left at the next exit." No. Life is about us calling ourselves awake.

It is about us reaching out and searching the… Read full post »

Let it shine!

Sometimes we are encouraged to not shine--to not be as talented and powerful as we can be--because it makes other people uncomfortable. 

 

It makes other people nervous when we dance across life and roar with the delight of it all. And in this we sin. We sin against ourselves and we&nb… Read full post »

Hooting!

On this day . . . 

On this day I wish you the courage to refuse to fold, staple or mutilate your heart and soul in order to please others. I wish you the clarity to not compromise your truth or your spirit in the hopes that others will love… Read full post »

I sometimes get this gerbil in my head. And if he isn't running on a squeaky wheel, he is singing endless, icky songs. This rodent runs rampant in my mind causing confusion, distraction and dismal reactions.  What's worse is that I actually create this little guy who terrorizes me in qRead full post »

I can't help it!

"I can't help it!" These four words are complete and unutterable baloney while at the same time they are the wisest mantra I can claim. For they are two sides of the same coin, you see. I was just holding the coin in my hand the wrong way. I had the… Read full post »

I so wanted . . .

I so wanted to be beautiful and strong, elegant and life-done-well. And I thought I was on the right track, you see. I had the education and those letters after my name, I had the career and the children and the spouse and the house. But somewhere along the line I… Read full post »

Cause and Effect

I can look back over the years of my life and clearly see the decisions and actions that eventually took me to so many places unwanted and pain-filled. I see the thoughtlessness with which I lived. I see that I thought tomorrows would never end and always arrive well-met and happy. I d… Read full post »

Prefab living?

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 in an aching and powerful whole. I… Read full post »

I used to be a very lonely woman. I rather prided myself on this fact, you know. Because it was my "specialness" that set me apart, that explained why my heart and soul were shuttered. You would not understand me, don't you see? So, I kept myself to myself and had… Read full post »

Never, ever done alone

As I sit here on this early morning, my mind and soul turn to those that are no longer walking this earth with me.  Their faces and the part of my heart that they held are clear and kind of "pinchy."  There is no longer the pain of my loss of… Read full post »

Youth Dreams

Ah, the dreams of our younger years, those tender and ferocious ideas and ideals that we held dear and determined. The driving forces of our twenties or thirties, we often put them away as foolish and forgotten because life began to happen. Educations needed completing; careers were cossetted and cha… Read full post »

We were once

If statistics are correct, the majority of us will say good-bye to a spouse or two before we are through with our journey in the here and now. We grow and change, they don't; they grow and change, we don't. It isRead full post »

Nope. Life ain't fair.

I don't know about you, but I was raised with one great big fallacy hanging over me from cradle pretty much right on through to more than a few years past college. I was taught that life was fair. You got as good as you gave. Honesty was repaid in kind.… Read full post »

Time on the run

It hits us all at one time or another in numerous quiet and not-so-quiet instances. We are getting older; we are getting old. Time is marching, no matter how hard we run and hide and try for a sleight of mind. We know in that quiet heart-voice that the physical resilience… Read full post »

Stuff it

My, my we are a culture of accumulation. Everywhere we look there are vendors vying for our attention, advising us to add to our “stuff.” And, it seems we are answering this call to consume with flying colors! Somehow we think that owning more “stuff” will make us feel better… Read full post »
