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 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...

[ < i don't know > ]

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...

Who are you?

Be careful who you pretend to be because in all your acting, you may lose sight of who you are my friend... i wrote this long post on instagram earlier and i've spent many moments today questioning.  wondering if maybe the post would've been better received had i put it here in the blog. i hear myself silently judging... maybe it's too long for the gram.  who is reading all this anyway?  no one cares.  this probably isn't what they want to...

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...

6 steps to reinvention

"For what it's worth, it's never too late to be whoever you want to be." -F. Scott Fitzgerald It’s NEVER too late to begin again... To try something new... To walk away from your current reality and boldly step into the unknown...  It might be scary, but it’s NEVER too late. You can create, recreate, write, scribble out, and rewrite your life as many times as you want. Do not let anyone who gave up on what’s possible for them tell you...

4 things you can do when you don’t feel “merry” or “bright”

I wasn't in the mood for Christmas. I simply was not feeling "merry" or "bright" this holiday season. I spent the morning of Christmas Eve sitting in my car with tears streaming down my face, feeling a sadness and a loss and a heaviness on my heart. It felt different than I've felt before and I was worried about myself.  Was I depressed? I'd been kind of down for the couple days prior and it seemed to be getting worse. To be fully transparent,...

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...
