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...

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 stop caring what other people think

Care about other people's approval, and you will always be their prisoner. -Lao Tzu people frequently ask me this question: how do i stop giving a sh*t about what other people think? my answer? you can't. i kid. but not really. the truth is, anyone who isn't a sociopath is going to care what other people think. so, the question is flawed. i'll explain. i have a friend who acts without attachment to the opinions of others. i have always viewed...

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...

7 steps to get back to self-care

Insignificant: too small or unimportant to be worth consideration I was with this heavy, gnawing, nagging feeling last week.  It stayed with me for most of the day on Tuesday. Okay, to be honest, I’m probably being a tad bit dramatic. It wasn't MOST of the day, but it was present. It was weighing me down and I didn't like how I was feeling. It was at about 9:30pm that evening when I connected with the actual feeling. I felt insignificant....

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,...
