I have a lot of thoughts on what's going on right now regarding Hollywood and the overall shifts happening in our culture.
Firstly, I'd like to state that I feel empathy and compassion for everyone who has ever experienced harassment, abuse, or discrimination on any grounds! I send you nothing but love.
Also, I'd like to preface this by saying that in no way do I condone harassment, abuse, or discrimination for any reason.
It is my...
So often I find my throat tight, caught, thick, constricted. Even as I type this, I can feel the constraint closing my throat - holding me back - keeping me silent.
I feel overwhelmed by how much there is to speak out about! What do I start with? What do I focus my attention and energy on? What matters the most to me? It all matters the most to me! I care about it all!
So, where can I best focus my attention?
I can use my life, my voice,...
I'm tired of feeling stuck. I'm tired of the energy not moving. I'm tired of not feeling worthy. I'm tired of questioning my power. I'm tired of being scared of my power. I'm tired of hiding. I'm tired of playing small. I'm tired of being tired with myself. I'm tired of stopping myself. I'm tired of putting up my own roadblocks.
This needs to change. And not in a small way, but in a life-altering, legacy-shifting way. The ways...
I read Start with Why by Simon Sinek, and I was like "That's great! What's my Why?"
Months later! Literally, many, many moooooooooonths later (12+), I was listening to the Mind Body Green Podcast with NRDC President Rhea Suh (this evening), and my Why came flooding out of me! So quickly that I didn't even have the chance to load my computer (because my computer actually requires time to load right now).
Your Why is passionate, powerful,...
Disclaimer: I felt called to write this post. This is my niche! I love making these lessons feel accessible! I love the idea that you can create your life, no matter what your background and past experiences are! That said, I am feeling incredibly fearful of actually posting this because I don't want to lead people down a path they don't know how to get out of. Please, listen to your inner knowing. You know yourself better than anyone....
I'm over life as I know it!
I'm over the comfort of the "daily grind".
I'm over doing what is expected.
I'm over giving into comfort.
I want to THRIVE!
I want to SHINE!
I want to LOVE Every. Single. Moment. of Every. Single. Day!
I want to feel purpose!
I want to help others realize their purpose!
I want to LOVE deeply!
Comfort is dangerous. Comfort is what keeps us stuck in the day-to-day situation we may be struggling to break free...
I have so much to say. And so much seems to be caught.
I can feel my throat. Tight. Stuck.
It makes me feel the need to cry. This needs to escape.
Holding it in makes me feel sick.
I have something to say about a "documentary" I recently watched. I have something to say about the climate. I have something to say about the state of our culture. I have something to say about the hate that has captured us; taken us hostage. I have something...
Do you play small? I certainly do.
What is that!? Why is that? Doesn’t that seem counter-intuitive? And yet, we all seem to have this same disposition/fear/shared consciousness.
This is a cliché question, but, for real: What would you do if you knew you wouldn’t fail? Put differently:
What would you do if you didn’t limit your potential? What would you do if you weren’t afraid of your light?
As humans, we’re really good when we’re in control, but what happens if something changes that’s out of your control, or what happens when you have to make a decision with your best knowledge in that moment without any time to really think about it?
There’s a yoga sutra that pulled itself into my consciousness this week:
Te prati prasava heyah suksmah.
“When you think you have it under control, you had...
