Meaning Is What We Make It

(0) Comments | Posted April 24, 2015 | 10:14 AM

Everything's temporary, and nothing really matters.

That's not supposed to be depressing and negative, it's simply the truth about this life and the world we live in. I'm not going to be the first person you hear talk about the fact that our lives are short little blips in the...

I'm At a Loss for Words

(1) Comments | Posted April 15, 2015 | 3:22 PM

I haven't been able to write since late December.

At least not in the way I wrote before. While some things have flowed through, many things have not. I've been blocked and stuck and stagnant, and it's been beyond frustrating. Mostly because I feel like I have so much to...

It's Not a Matter of 'If,' It's a Matter of 'When'

(1) Comments | Posted March 27, 2015 | 6:57 PM

Here's the truth about your big dreams and visions:
It's not a matter of "if," it's a matter of when.

We're not gifted with big, sometimes crazy scary dreams and visions unless we have everything we need inside of us to make it happen. Yes, sometimes there are things...

Gratitude for My Pain

(0) Comments | Posted March 11, 2015 | 12:25 AM

Midway through an acupressure session a friend and I were doing together, on a step about forgiveness, his face appeared in my mind. A face I swore up and down I never wanted to see again. A person I swore would never be allowed in my life in any capacity....

How to Spend Time With People Without Feeling Exhausted

(0) Comments | Posted March 5, 2015 | 3:17 PM

"Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and invite your spirit, your true essence, into your body."

I closed my eyes, with doubt... for I'd done a number of visualizations in the past that really didn't amount to much more than making me sleepy. Maybe visualizations just aren't my thing,...

Your Body Is Wise: Trust It

(0) Comments | Posted February 23, 2015 | 3:32 AM

I found my footing one stride at a time.

After experiencing the greatest loss of my life, I instinctively started running. I remember the first run... I felt like an emotional zombie, and I huffed and puffed three quarters of a mile on the treadmill at the gym. I hadn't...

We Need You to Be You

(0) Comments | Posted February 5, 2015 | 12:06 PM

I've been blogging since about 2006, and for a majority of the time, I did so anonymously. It's funny actually... I felt far more comfortable with strangers reading my deepest thoughts on the internet than I did sharing them with family, friends, or my boyfriend at the time. In fact,...

How to Not Get Caught Up in What Other People Think of You

(0) Comments | Posted January 6, 2015 | 3:01 PM

People are always going to judge us, always. It's simply the way most humans are wired. We learn something about someone, see them acting a certain way (or not), or we hear what they have to say, and we judge them. Sometimes it's a simple flash from our intuition, other...

Heal and Release What No Longer Serves You

(0) Comments | Posted December 19, 2014 | 12:38 PM

I'm a huge fan of healing and release. As we peel away past layers of ourselves, hurts, limiting beliefs that no longer serve us, and anything else that needs to be cleared, we step more fully into the person we're here to be in this life.

As part of my...

Accomplish Amazing Things by Creating More Time in the Day

(1) Comments | Posted December 1, 2014 | 3:59 PM

Two weeks ago I did a webinar on setting big and exciting goals for 2015 (you can catch the replay here). It seems appropriate to also talk about one of the biggest culprits that keeps us from achieving what we want... wasted time.

In the last couple months,...

Why You Don't Always Need to Listen to the 'Experts'

(0) Comments | Posted October 23, 2014 | 10:22 AM

I want to share something today that's really important to me, because I see it happening all the time. I'm going to talk in the context of business, but this is relevant for any area of your life you may consult the "experts" around.

Several years ago I became the...

When Your Friends and Family Don't Support You

(0) Comments | Posted October 2, 2014 | 3:40 PM

When we feel called to do or create something in our lives, it's not always going to align perfectly for the people we love. We may be called in a direction that goes against our family's belief system, makes our significant other uncomfortable, or causes us to butt heads with...

You Can Love Your Life, Even When It's Hard

(0) Comments | Posted September 26, 2014 | 11:29 AM

"Life is fun."

This is a text I sent to my best friend last night, without sarcasm or an eye roll. I meant it, with my whole heart and soul. This isn't something I would have said a few years ago... I would have said "life is hard" or "life...

I Wasn't Supported for Years and Here's Why

(1) Comments | Posted September 17, 2014 | 6:11 PM

For the majority of my life I've proudly declared how independent I am. While being independent is something that will always be true of my personality, I recently had the very eye-opening realization that I'm so frustratingly independent because I believed I had to be most of my life.

I Used to Be a Liar

(0) Comments | Posted September 3, 2014 | 3:04 PM

Seriously, I lied all the time.

I lied every day about what I really desired, regardless of how big or small. I lied about who I was to my friends and family. I lied to my bosses and clients. I lied with every breath, word, and action, and especially with...

I Pulled Away From My Tribes (And Why You May Want To)

(1) Comments | Posted August 19, 2014 | 6:19 PM

At the end of last year I made the conscious decision to pull away from my communities. My mastermind tribe, entrepreneurial groups I was in, mentors, and even some of my fellow business building friends. I was feeling unhappy with my business and like it needed to better reflect who...

Be Seen, Loved, Appreciated and Valued for Who You Really Are

(1) Comments | Posted August 15, 2014 | 1:18 PM

For the majority of my life I felt like people didn't see me.

When I was younger and in school, it was feeling like I had no real friends (I really only had a few sporadically), like people were always more "into" or interested in everyone else, or like no...

There Is No One as Impressive as They Seem

(0) Comments | Posted August 6, 2014 | 10:54 AM

I'm super hard to impress, don't get star struck, and am not a fan girl. The reason is, I know a simple secret most other people don't realize: no one's as impressive as they seem.

That's not to say people don't do amazing and incredible things, or that they themselves...

I Learned a Lot From Being Three Months Behind on ALL My Bills

Recently I was challenged by a commenter to share a story on my "happy blog" of a time when I was so behind on things for several months and didn't know what I was going to do. This person was in a very negative space and assumed I wouldn't have...

How to Take Bold, Brave and Imperfect Action

(0) Comments | Posted July 16, 2014 | 5:22 PM

I spent last weekend at Chris Guillebeau's World Domination Summit Event in Portland, OR and it was, as always, absolutely amazing. What I love about attending events with multiple speakers is that we all receive the individual messages we need to hear through ideas interwoven into each talk. Our minds...
