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...

Allowing the emergence of who you are becoming

Your circumstances will conspire to support your growth I’ve been practicing taking up space in my life by not showing up in many of the places where I am in the habit of showing up. ⁣ Friday afternoon the line to our WiFi was cut.

Succeeding without losing yourself in the process

"Women are the greatest untapped natural resource on the planet." -Regena Thomashauer For years I believed I needed to be something and someone other than me in order to succeed. ⁣ ⁣ I didn’t think me as ME could succeed. ⁣ ⁣ I mean, why would I? ⁣ ⁣ Everything I was consuming was telling me directly or indirectly that I had to be different than me to “win”. ⁣ ⁣ The people I saw modeling success were doing so from a...

Force vs. Power

There’s a difference between force + power. ⁣ When it comes to leadership, much of what we see modeled is FORCE. ⁣ It’s domination⁣. It’s hierarchical⁣. Power is different. ⁣ Power doesn’t need to force. It flows. ⁣ Power doesn’t have to demand. It commands. ⁣ Power is self-connected, self-led and exudes an essence sooo wildly + inexplicably magnetic that other people cannot resist her presence. ⁣ There is no force...

Are you alive in your life?

Burnout is a silent killer of women. ⁣⁣At a certain point, you wake up - suddenly alive in your life and ask your self, your god, your universe, “Is THIS all there is?” ⁣⁣This question typically comes after years of waiting.

You can unlearn their stories

It’s real easy for me to seek outside myself for the answers. What should I wear? What should I say? What books should I read? What should I eat? What course should I take? Who should I follow? 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...

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...

Are you waiting to be chosen?

If I abandon my authentic self in an attempt to be chose, even if they choose me... I will KNOW it wasn’t me they chose. ⁣⁣This can lead to anger, resentment, sadness + depression. ⁣⁣Here’s how it showed up for me…⁣ I didn’t set or honor my boundaries ⁣ I felt obligated to say yes when I wanted to say no ⁣ I was afraid to slow down — let alone stop⁣ I was demanding perfection from myself⁣ I was using my inner critic...
