Problem or Possibility?

It's easy to fixate on our problems. ⁣ We ask ourselves and others, “Why is this a problem or Why do I have this problem or What is at the root of this problem???” ⁣ We tell ourselves on repeat that there is something wrong that we need to understand in order to move away from this problem we have that we don’t understand. ⁣ We convince ourselves that the moment we DO understand, we’ll be able to move on.⁣ I get it. ⁣ I did...

Why am I so tired?

I don't understand why I'm so tired... ⁣ For years, I needed to find a reason to explain the way I felt. ⁣ ⁣ ESPECIALLY if the way I felt meant that I didn’t want to work. ⁣ ⁣ Do you relate?⁣ ⁣ It was as though the fact that I was feeling tired wasn’t a good enough reason to rest, so I needed to search for some sort of justification. ⁣ ⁣ I see this a lot with entrepreneurs. ⁣ ⁣ We have so many tasks⁣ ⁣ We have...

Why are you doing what you’re doing?

It's not about WHAT you're doing, it's about WHY you're doing it it is super easy for us to judge others based on the things we see them doing (or not)...   we often judge based on comparisons of what WE like and what is working or has worked for US...   things like:   + how they care for themselves + their work ethic + their relationship to food or alcohol + how and whom they date + their sex life and choice of partner(s) + how much rest...

Just because you’re not dealing with it doesn’t mean you’re not dealing with it

Fine is not a feeling   full speed ahead 24/7/365 causes crashes   i know because i've been on the floor more than once i've lost my sh*t so many times i stopped counting i've cried hysterically after screaming at the top of my lungs when something didn't go my way or plans changed i've been so tense my muscles forgot how to relax i've clawed at my skin to hold down the rage   but you didn't know i wouldn't let you know on the outside i...

Your dreams are dying because of the life you’re not living

Desires. For so long I pretended I was unworthy. Like I had to do more and be more to earn the right to want. Ugh. "Earn the right to want..." The law had been written and I had declared, "I never was nor would I ever be enough." I had crowned myself "unworthy" and so it was. Eventually, I stopped wanting. It wasn't safe. It was too risky. My dreams and desires were trapped. Locked inside my soul, fighting to come out-- to come alive. Longing...

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....

How to stop caring what other people think

Care about other people's approval, and you will always be their prisoner. -Lao Tzu people frequently ask me this question: how do i stop giving a sh*t about what other people think? my answer? you can't. i kid. but not really. the truth is, anyone who isn't a sociopath is going to care what other people think. so, the question is flawed. i'll explain. i have a friend who acts without attachment to the opinions of others. i have always viewed...

Is the path you’re walking taking you where you want to go?

just because you've been walking the same way on the same path for a looooonnnnnnnnng time, doesn't mean that path is taking you where you want to go. it's possible, that it's time to change directions. i've been in this super reflective space all week and just an hour or so ago, i threw my 2018 planner in the trash-can.  along with it, i threw my 2017 planner away. yup. i'd been holding onto that as well.  it's funny how we keep things...

i don't know i know it's not cute but it is a hit that feeds the addiction calms the twitching that beast within is becoming extinct she's dying and she's afraid so she rages in her attempts to cling to life she scratches on occasion i can smell her fear i know i no longer need the sanctuary of that old story i know i no longer need the high of your attention i know i no longer need the protection of my pretending i don't know because the...
