It's OK to Outgrow Yourself

(0) Comments | Posted November 24, 2015 | 12:38 PM

Recently I've been toying with the idea of pulling down years of content from my website. Which is hard, because I know that content has helped thousands of people over all the years it's sat on my blog. I know this because many sweet souls write in to tell me...

What Are You Willing to Give?

(0) Comments | Posted November 17, 2015 | 3:38 PM

"You have to show that you're willing to suffer for what you want," he said as we drove, "that's the idea... are you willing to suffer for your prayers to be answered?"

It was late afternoon and we were preparing for our time at the sweat lodge that evening. We...

You Are the Only One Who Can Make This Journey

(0) Comments | Posted November 3, 2015 | 12:50 PM

This year has been the year where I really found my people.

I let go of hands that no longer fit, and settled into relationships with those who were once acquaintances and have now become my very best friends. People who get me on levels no one ever has.

I'm Not Going to Tell You It Will Be Okay

(0) Comments | Posted October 26, 2015 | 11:11 PM

Not because I don't think it will be (because, okay, it will be). But because that's not helpful to you where you're standing right now. That's a thing we say to each other when we can't find any other words.

It will be fine. It will be okay. Everything will...

How to Become the Leader You Aspire to Be

(0) Comments | Posted October 20, 2015 | 4:16 PM

Wait... what?

I know how that sounds. I remember thinking the same thing as I scribbled furiously in my journal after a call with my amazing coach.

We ended our session with me rambling on about what I'm feeling called to create with my work, how I'm being asked to...

When Trust and Faith Aren't Easy

(0) Comments | Posted October 12, 2015 | 6:10 PM

I've made a commitment to greater truth and transparency in my work. And when I say "made a commitment," what I really mean is that this work is asking it of me in order to move into what's next. In order for me to ever find my footing again in...

It's About the Work, Not the Numbers

(0) Comments | Posted October 6, 2015 | 2:08 PM

Lately I've stopped caring as much.

About the follows and likes and retweets or shares. I've stopped watching the numbers, though if I'm honest I'll tell you I rarely looked at them to begin with. As I take my feet off the wall and free fall into what's...

Stop Apologizing, Reclaim Your Power

(0) Comments | Posted September 29, 2015 | 2:06 PM

This message is going to make some people pretty mad, but I'm going to say this anyway. For you. For me. For all of us who have been giving our all every single day, yet continually come up short: I'm not sorry I'm letting you down.

Don't get me wrong,...

I'm Devoted to This Work

(0) Comments | Posted September 22, 2015 | 4:27 PM

I used to not like people, it's true. I used to think people as a whole were selfish and unkind creatures... until I started doing this work I do.

As I started to coach and teach sweet souls from all over the world, I learned something pretty life altering: we...

I Don't Have the Happy Ending Story for You Yet

(0) Comments | Posted September 16, 2015 | 11:38 AM

While on a family trip this past August, I had the opportunity to go canyoneering for the first time. We hiked up a beautiful rock formation on the outskirts of Zion until we reached a little ledge that poured over into a dark, cool crevice within the rocks.

While covering...

Don't Miss This One Short Life of Yours

(0) Comments | Posted September 1, 2015 | 4:34 PM

Please. I know it's hard to live this life.

I know there are times that it hurts so much you think you might not make it through another day. When you're certain that nothing will ever change or go your way. When your body is tired and your soul is...

Pissing People Off Is Part of the Work Sometimes

(0) Comments | Posted August 28, 2015 | 12:48 PM

I'm going to piss you off.

You or someone else... it's going to happen.

All because I'm going to touch on the things that make people feel unsettled and unsteady, and it's going to make someone mad. They may unsubscribe, unlike my social media pages, and tell the people around...

Sometimes Healing Is Hard

(0) Comments | Posted August 24, 2015 | 7:12 PM

It was a Saturday afternoon and I was sitting on his couch with my eyes closed, sobbing harder than I had in months. I had stopped breathing, resisting the next step of the process with every cell in my body. I could literally feel every inch of my being saying...

It's Not About You, and That's Exactly Why It's About You

(0) Comments | Posted August 20, 2015 | 4:22 PM

Service-oriented and purpose-driven entrepreneurs often run into the issue of "being in the public eye." We just want to change the world, leave our mark, and make the difference we know we were born to make. We don't necessarily care about recognition and praise and awards. Sometimes, sure. But mostly,...

You Belong Simply Because You're Here

(0) Comments | Posted August 12, 2015 | 7:06 PM

You're not supposed to belong.

That's not the point of you.

You'd be surprised how many people resonate with the statement, "I don't belong in this world." I know it floored me when I first realized I wasn't the only one.

I was sitting in a large room with almost...

Today I'm Taking a Stand for Me and You, For All of Us

(0) Comments | Posted July 21, 2015 | 11:42 AM

For as long as I can remember, I've chosen to walk into the darkness. To feel all there is to feel in the shadows of this life. I've stuck my hand into the fire, just to feel it burn. Sank myself into a depression that left me a shell of...

When Feedback Is Irrelevant

(0) Comments | Posted July 9, 2015 | 2:40 PM

Over the last decade of designing websites and working with clients around creating products and services and business around their passions, I've noticed a common trend. We'll work through a branding brief, come up with some strategies to implement, or present a website that's designed to support their goals.

Choose to Try, Try Again

(0) Comments | Posted July 8, 2015 | 1:58 PM

"Have enough courage to trust love one more time, and always one more time."

I'm obsessed with this quote from Maya Angelou. Always one more time. It's become my mantra, a way of showing up in this world and my relationships. A simple phrase that resonates within every single cell.

This Message Is a Choice Point

(0) Comments | Posted June 30, 2015 | 5:01 PM

Life is too short to waste being afraid, and far too fragile to leave room for wonder.

When we're at the end of the line and there's nothing left to do but wait for our last breath, we're not going to fondly remember the moments where we held back and...

Create a Safe Space for Yourself

(0) Comments | Posted June 24, 2015 | 10:52 AM

I was staring into the fire thinking about death, naturally, when he asked me one of the questions I had most dreaded until that night.

The question about whether or not I'd lost someone close me, or the one about what happened with my last relationship. Not many people know...
