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...

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...

How to “DO” self-love

"Treat yourself like someone you love" only works if you have a healthy relationship with LOVE the other day i posed the question, how do you "DO" self love? i think many of us talk about it, but how many of us actually BE about it? what does it mean to DO it? to take ACTION? i was chatting with a client last week and we spoke about how awareness is the first step, but the only thing that has the power to change anything in our lives is ACTION....

[ < i don't know > ]

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...

“Too much” & “Not enough” are the same story

I welcome anything that "triggers" me.⁣ ⁣ If you're unfamiliar with the term, what it means a thing that "activates" an emotional response.⁣ ⁣ The "activation" could be of excitement, passion or joy, etc. and it can also be of anger, frustration, and irritation, etc.⁣ ⁣ The thing that comes before the emotion is the trigger.⁣ ⁣ A few years ago I found myself at a personal development event where I got triggered.⁣ ⁣ I noticed...

[ < lock up > ]

"It's hard to see a way out, isn't it?" Yesterday I heard my coach say, "We are programmed for protection and dying for connection."  His statement shook me. I felt it in my core. I messaged him back and shared how I had said on a video just a few days prior, my perfection was my protection. I got what he was saying. I FELT both the power and the sadness in his words. So much of who we are is buried underneath who we're pretending to be. My...

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...
