Suffering is an option

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional. -Haruki Murakami while i don't recall the moment i first heard haruki murakami's quote, i distinctly remember the feeling in my body. my jaw clenched and my shoulders rolled back and tightened as i began to embody a fighting stance. i was under attack and preparing myself for battle. i was ready to defend my suffering. i was set to argue against anyone who would dare try to take my limitations away....

The 5 main ingredients to an incredible support system

You are worthy of world-class support support: give assistance to; to give encouragement to someone or something because you want him, her, or it to succeed; suggest the truth of. friend, we're not supposed to do this whole "life" thing alone. but, if you're anything like the me i used to be, asking for help can feel super hard to do. it sounds easy enough in theory, but in real life? practically impossible. i felt like being able to do it...

How to “DO” self-love

"Treat yourself like someone you love" only works if you have a healthy relationship with LOVE the other day i posed the question, how do you "DO" self love? i think many of us talk about it, but how many of us actually BE about it? what does it mean to DO it? to take ACTION? i was chatting with a client last week and we spoke about how awareness is the first step, but the only thing that has the power to change anything in our lives is ACTION....

“Too much” & “Not enough” are the same story

I welcome anything that "triggers" me.⁣ ⁣ If you're unfamiliar with the term, what it means a thing that "activates" an emotional response.⁣ ⁣ The "activation" could be of excitement, passion or joy, etc. and it can also be of anger, frustration, and irritation, etc.⁣ ⁣ The thing that comes before the emotion is the trigger.⁣ ⁣ A few years ago I found myself at a personal development event where I got triggered.⁣ ⁣ I noticed...

It is all part of the process of change. Resistance is embedded in the pavement leading to...

[ < lock up > ]

How to be empowered NOW

"I have a past, but I don't live there anymore."   Earlier today I heard my coach say, "If you really are committed to producing the kind of future that you want; don't stand in judgment of the past that you didn't want.  It doesn't work that way." I remember the first time I was exposed to this idea.  It was 2016 and I was in the room at a week long coaching certification being held in Los Angeles. I was pretty stuck in my attachment to...
