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...

Your dreams are dying because of the life you’re not living

Desires. For so long I pretended I was unworthy. Like I had to do more and be more to earn the right to want. Ugh. "Earn the right to want..." The law had been written and I had declared, "I never was nor would I ever be enough." I had crowned myself "unworthy" and so it was. Eventually, I stopped wanting. It wasn't safe. It was too risky. My dreams and desires were trapped. Locked inside my soul, fighting to come out-- to come alive. Longing...

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...

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...

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...

Stuck to freedom in 3 steps

Have you heard the saying, “Proper preparation prevents piss poor performance”? It makes sense, right? Do your research and be prepared. I get it. But when you’re a (recovering) perfectionist, you change the PROPER to PERFECT. And when you do that…. Well, PERFECT preparation doesn't prevent, it actually LEADS to piss poor performance. Or, even worse, no performance at all. Allow me to explain. When I was in college I was taking an improv...
