We all numb. Numbing is probably one of our best coping mechanisms.
I numb with TV and food. Many numb with shopping. Some numb with drinking. We all have our ways.
We also all have our triggers. A tough day at work. Getting into an argument with a loved one. PMS.
There are two parts of numbing the first is the trigger, and the second is what to do instead.
I want to say that life isn't supposed to be stressful - and it's not!...
When did you learn being seen wasn’t safe?
When did you learn being recognized in a crowd meant being punished?
When did you start hiding?
When did you shrink into a wallflower?
Sometimes it’s a trigger in this life that your soul recognizes as a danger from another life. Sometimes the time you remember in this life doesn’t seem like it could have been enough to send you into the shadows, but that might have been the...
In the process of waking up, there are many stages and each has their exciting pieces and the parts that are full of fear.
One of my most feared places during this process is looking at the gap between where I am now, and where I want to be.
If you have dreams, this gap can strike insurmountable fear into any mere mortal!
And yet, the only way to get there is to keep moving forward.
Sometimes I get scared of even looking at ...
This work isn't sexy, and it may not be quick, but you will feel strong and confident in knowing that these are life-long, sustainable changes.
I'm not going to give you the answers. I will support you and encourage you, but I will not hand you the answers because they would be my answers, not yours. True, lasting, sustainable change can only come from you doing the work and finding your own answers.
It may not be easy, but it also...
Every experience that we have creates a story within our life. Each one of these stories has the possibility of traveling with us - when we don't take the time to process them, move through them, and let them go.
When we hold onto a story, that story can become intertwined with our identity.
If you have dabbled in the self-help space, you are likely at least aware of some stories you are traveling with. Being aware is definitely...
When your intuition speaks, but you're not quite ready to listen to it, that's ok!
There are times when we choose not to listen to that small, quiet voice in the back of our heads. Sometimes we hear it, or we feel it - a nudge - and we know something is true, but we are not yet ready to take action on it.
When your intuition speaks, be aware of it. Cultivate your practice of hearing it, but you don't always have to take action on what it...
Do not underestimate me!
Yes, I may have underestimated myself. And, yes, that gave you permission to underestimate me, but that ends, right here, right now.
"Good enough" is no longer good enough.
I will no longer settle for less than exceptional.
Exceptional is the only path forward for me.
I had coffee with someone today who told me that I was "the same" as someone who does not bring my same knowledge, talents, experience, or...
Clearly, simply, what am I hear to share with you?
My desire for you, loves, is that you learn to trust yourself and know that you are worthy of the life that you desire!
From our very beginning, we assimilate the "shoulds", "would haves", and expectations of those around us - our parents, family, friends, social network, and culture. Sometimes we question, but most of the time we accept these beliefs bestowed upon us as fact. So...
It's taken me a long time to post this. This originated in September 2017. Something hit me during a trip to San Francisco. Something unexpected!
It started on the Wednesday night that I arrived...we were staying at a hostel for one night and, upon showing up, I discovered we didn't have a private washroom, as I had expected. We were in a room with a shared hall washroom.
And I did not react well to this!
It took me until the...
We all have stories that we believe to be true. The key is recognizing these stories and knowing which ones are no longer serving you!
Ask yourself, a year from now:
Reflecting back through your life experiences (without judgment), what stories do you repeat?
