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...

You can unlearn their stories

What should I study? Who should I trust?My questions all some version of “What’s the right thing to do?”One of my biggest drivers is to not be wrong.In that state, I was at the mercy of everyone else while simultaneously reinforcing the (total...

You can’t change what you won’t look at

When you move to make a change in your life, your unconscious mind will resist. "Nope.  We are not doing THAT." She may lash out or rage. She will dig her heels in. She will scream. "This doesn't feel good!!!! I don't like this at all!" She does not, I repeat, does not want to change. This feeling of massive resistance is natural. It is totally normal. It is all part of the process of change. Resistance is embedded in the pavement leading to...

Programmed to perform

This image effects me in a deep way... There is a tightening in my jaw. A tension in my neck. A dull, but present ache in my chest. Once I allowed the sadness to come and wash over me, I sat with my truth. The truth of what I saw in this picture. A version of my punisher. The part of me that does not like me. The part of me who spent years telling me that I would be worthy and valuable if - and only if - I achieved perfection. The part of me...

Self-loathing to celebration [my journey]

Self loathing. I wasn't born hating myself and honestly, I don't remember the exact moment that it started. My best guess is that it happened slowly. An unfolding over the course of many many years, events, and small, seemingly insignificant, moments and conversations. All leading up to the day where I couldn't look at myself in the mirror. I felt unworthy. I felt hard to love. I was stuck and I couldn't see it. What I could see was my behavior....

3 lessons from losing my voice

It began early Saturday morning.  I noticed that it hurt a little when I swallowed. Now, 6 days later, when I open my mouth no words come out. I am unable to recall the last time I was physically unable to speak. Even if I try, there are no words and it sucks.  It sucks big time. It's scary and a bit demoralizing. But, as find myself forced into this silence, I notice there is a lot bubbling up emotionally. So, I made a choice. A choice to...
