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. No WiFi = no internet ⁣ I work from home so this means no email, no zoom, no YouTube, no access to online documents and projects, and no access to social media which IS part of my job. ⁣Since Friday...

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. Self-sacrificing with the belief that turns into a hope that turns into a wish that turns into a resigned state of being that one day… ⁣⁣One day it will be YOUR turn. It will be time for your dreams. Your...

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...

Each day begins a new year

I want you to know that it is okay if…⁣ ⁣ You haven’t yet figured out your 2022 word of the year⁣ ⁣ You did not begin a new workout routine or go for a walk today⁣ ⁣ You haven’t thought about — let alone mapped out your goals for the new year⁣ ⁣ You haven’t reflected on last years wins + lessons⁣ ⁣ You haven’t begun the journey of completely reinventing yourself⁣ ⁣  It is okay if you have. ⁣ ⁣ The point...

Sabotage is a solution

The ones I loved were watching me destroy myself and declare it was in service to them If our needs are unmet as children, we can develop a belief that we are unworthy of being taken care of.    ⁣We create this belief because as small children, we think that everything happening in our environment is a reflection of us.⁣⁣So if our needs are unmet, we make it mean that it's happening because there is something wrong with us.⁣When I...

Whatever it takes

You will miss the journey in your race to the finish line I spent much of my life rushing to a finish line that didn’t exist + while missing the journey that did⁣⁣I was working for my worthiness like it was a thing waiting for me at the end of my never-ending to do list ⁣⁣Earlier this year, my body let me know she was done tolerating what she’d been tolerating (amazingly well!) for so many years ⁣⁣She got sick⁣⁣My diet had...

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...
