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...

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...

Do you trust yourself to try?

One week ago today, I was one day home Having arrived late in the evening from my most recent trip to California Transformed, but in ways not yet fully detectable by me Aware of a stirring Unsure what it meant or what to do with it Have you ever been in that space Felt the longing... Pulling toward something new... Knowing you don't belong where you are And yet... Unsure Uncertain Unclear       What does it look like? What's my...

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...

3 steps to quitting

I recently read an article by Erika Bruhn.  She says, "The truth is, quitting isn't really giving up. Maybe, when you look further, the words "I quit" could really reflect a person's self-awareness, mindfulness, and emotional intelligence. What if we, as friends, family, and colleagues, looked at the act of quitting as empowered, one that creates space for self-reflection, dreaming, and appreciation for what no longer serves someone? Could the...

My hate/love relationship with my body & working out

At the beginning of this month, I made a commitment to begin working out. Again. I had been doing yoga {inconsistently}, but I had stopped doing cardio and lifting weights. Part of this was intentional and part of it seemed to slip away without my noticing. Has this ever happened to you? One day you wake up and you realize you're no longer doing something you used to do? It's like, "Wait... When did that stop????" You may or may not know this,...

What if you just decided?

What if you decided to put down your stories? What if you decided that everything happening in your life was happening for your highest good? What if you decided to no longer label anything as good or bad or right or wrong and decided that things simply were? What if you decided to allow your emotions and circumstances to flow over you, around you, and through you; instead of desperately clinging to them in an attempt to control and manipulate...

Busting through your “not enough” story in 4 steps

I realized today that I don't trust myself. F*ck. How do I know? Well, let me share my (old) pattern. First, I take a step into something new.  This could be a new group, a new training, a new entrepreneurial endeavor, or a new ANYTHING where I am unfamiliar. Subconsciously I say, "I don't know how to do this..." and my actions are to ask for help and or research. As my coach pointed out to me today, neither of those things are...

Permission to be a work in progress

Permission to be a work in progress. This week I was on a call with my coach where he asked me directly, “What growth activities have you been doing since we last connected?” Me:  "Um, what are growth activities?" Him:  "The activities that are going to launch your business forward.  There really aren’t that many.  It could be 1:1 coaching calls, speaking, or calling people to book 1:1 calls and/or speaking opportunities.  What...

What if you believed you were enough to begin?

"What if you believed you were enough right now?" I am sitting here at my desk, listening to YouTube play "Tibetan Singing Bowls Chakra Healing Meditation Music", all in an attempt to open my 5th chakra and allow myself to speak my truth, while simultaneously over-thinking what I'll type for my first ever blog post. Here's a backstage pass to my head talk... I'm worried that I'm "not ready" to write for you, I am concerned about saying the...
