Why You Need to Step It Up Even Though It's Scary

(0) Comments | Posted May 3, 2016 | 2:32 PM

The thought was so tiny and simple, easily missed or brushed off as insignificant and silly. It randomly appeared one afternoon while I was writing, one of those whispers of the soul that we can neither confirm or deny... *they just are.* Simple truths that shake us to our core...

When Your Work Requires Something You Don't Like

(0) Comments | Posted April 20, 2016 | 9:23 AM

"I hate that I'm at the forefront of my business," I shared with my mentor the other day. We were talking about the importance of branding yourself as a thought leader when you want to speak and teach and write.

"Really?" He asked, tilting his head with a bit of...

How to Connect With Others Through Your Writing

(0) Comments | Posted April 12, 2016 | 4:47 PM

"What would you have me say," I whisper with intention and a bit of frustration (inspired by A Course in Miracles). I'm watching the cursor blink on the stark white page of my writing software. It's painfully empty, taunting me with all its space. Tormenting me with its desire to...

You Deserve It All

"I don't know when to trust myself and how to know if I'm being unreasonable," she wrote to me. "On being 'unreasonable,'" I replied, "who cares?"

I remember when I was in a relationship that wasn't making me happy several years back. It just always felt like something was missing,...

Stop Striving for Perfection

(0) Comments | Posted March 15, 2016 | 4:48 PM

"I love your transparency," she said as she laughed along with me at the absurdity of the technical glitches I'd encountered trying to run my first group Acupressure session. It was pretty funny actually... considering that at one point, I was carefully sliding my hand off camera to grab my...

Facing These Truths, What Will You Do?

(0) Comments | Posted March 8, 2016 | 11:01 AM

This life is short.

You know that already, because it's one of those cliche sentiments people like to express from time to time. Without much thought. Without much presence. Without much connection to the truth and the weight of those four simple words.

This life is short. So. Very. Short.

The Definition of Purpose: Be You and Do What You Feel Called to Do

(0) Comments | Posted February 24, 2016 | 1:27 PM

When I graduated college, my mom bought me a beautiful suit jacket and slacks. Just a couple years ago I finally donated the jacket to Goodwill, tags still dangling off the end of the sleeve. I refused to wear it. I refused to ever interview or take a job that...

I Used to Think I Was Wrong

(0) Comments | Posted February 15, 2016 | 11:29 AM

I used to think I was wrong for the things I shared and the ways I felt.

When I spoke what was true for me and my experience. When I made real the emotions and experiences that burned inside my heart and left marks on my soul. I used to...

Don't Forget Why You Started Showing Up

"You don't know me..." was the subject line that appeared in my inbox. "But I want you to know that you really helped me."

"Hey," his message began. "I'm not sure how I found your blog, but I have to let you know that it may have saved my life."

There's Never a Point at Which We Stop Growing

(0) Comments | Posted February 2, 2016 | 2:23 PM

I turn off the lights and close my eyes, only to jump out of bed moments later in search of a specific book. I grab the book, turn the light back on, and climb under the covers again. Three pages and a couple highlighted paragraphs later, I'm searching for my...

You Can't Come Back If You Never Fall

(0) Comments | Posted January 26, 2016 | 11:11 AM

I was scrolling through Instagram one morning, half asleep and feeling all the feels, when this quote from Hiba Fatima Ahmad suddenly appeared before me:

"How can you rise, if you have not burned?"

Perfection. Because my work these past several months has really been about choosing to rise. Choosing...

Possibility Is Not a Promise, It's a Call to Action

(0) Comments | Posted January 19, 2016 | 4:33 PM

One of my intuitive gifts has always been seeing possibility. As we talk and I tune into your heart, I see what's possible for you. And it's beautiful... so incredibly beautiful. I see you in the life that's waiting for you, living fully expressed and true to yourself, doing the...

I'm Human, Just Like You

(0) Comments | Posted January 12, 2016 | 12:04 PM

There was a time in my life when I thought a lot about ending it. When I chose to be numb and stop feeling because it was too much to be here. There was a time in my life when I stole and smoked and rarely went to school. When...

The Hardest Part Is the Comeback

(0) Comments | Posted January 6, 2016 | 8:35 AM

The fall is not the hardest part.

The return... the rise... the comeback.

That's the hard part.

You think it's the cracking open. The moments where the wind leaves your body and you're brought to your knees. Feeling your heart split as the tears begin to flow. Knowing, in that...

Since I turned 23 years old, I started to set resolutions and massive goals every single year at my birthday and the new year. I would list out every single thing I wanted to change or gain in my life in order to "be happy." But after just a few...

Callings Can Be Challenging

(0) Comments | Posted December 21, 2015 | 4:45 PM

The words and the work. The laying my life down in service of something far greater than I may ever know. Sometimes the words start to bubble just below the surface and tickle my tongue, aching to be released. They twist around inside, making me antsy and uncomfortable.

I'm Not Insensitive, I've Just Gotten Stronger

"Sometimes I worry I've become insensitive," I shared as I fiddled with my fingernails and stared off into space. "But then I realized I've just gotten stronger. I've developed a strength necessary to do the work I'm here to do... to sit in the shit with the people who are...

I have to walk away from my computer a lot. If you email me in response to this post, you might not hear from me for a week, though I will usually always reply. Sometimes I'm in straight "output" mode on social media and I don't actually read or look...

Change the Energy Behind Your Words

(0) Comments | Posted November 30, 2015 | 4:01 PM

Over the years, I've talked a lot about changing our vocabulary in order to change our lives. How words carry energy and actual vibrations that have an effect on how we feel and what we can or cannot create for ourselves. I still believe this 100%. It's how we manifest....

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...
