Don’t Pretend

Don’t Pretend

You can be sexy AND smart AND interesting AND sought after without being a chameleon.

I watch so many women mold to what they “think” a guy wants them to be and it kills me that people think this is the way to find happiness.

Ladies— I hate to break it to you but you can’t keep up the charade forever. Eventually, you’ll start being who you really are under the mask and pretend hobbies and fake interests and then your man will look at you like “WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?”

Labyrinth

Labyrinth

Today I walked a Labyrinth.

Before today I didn’t even know what that meant. Or what it was.

But I can tell you that I was divinely guided to find this space on this day.

Here’s why; I’ve been having quite the rollercoaster ride lately. Lots of realizations, changes, shifts, and all the feelings. But I guess that the deeper you go, the more you dig, the more “woke” you get, sometimes that’s just a normal part of your day to day.

So, this morning I just felt uneasy, for no real reason why. I did my normal routine, got grounded, pulled cards, made the bed, sat with Bonnie, journaled with my coffee, read my book, listened to my drums, but still couldn’t kick it.

Somewhere around 11am I stopped for a minute and realized that I could barely even remember any of the things I had done that day, without really stopping to think hard about it.

It was like I was in a trance.

Self-Awareness

Self-Awareness

Listen, some days are going to be… trying to say the least.

Some days you’ll have a constant conversation with yourself in your head about what is a story and what is the truth.

Because your mind will try to play tricks on you. It will bring up any old past shit that it thinks “might” explain a situation in order to try and “protect” you but it’s up to you to be self-aware enough to look that shit in the face and decipher if its fact or fiction.

Sometimes those subconscious things really are legit and a great device to point out things that need your attention… But sometimes they are totally off. In fact, a lot of times they are based on things that have nothing at all to do with the current situation and are 100% a fabricated story inside of your head.

So what happens if you believe that story? Continue reading “Self-Awareness”

Growing Up

Growing Up

You grow up seeing what is possible by observing your surroundings. You see what’s “okay” or “normal” to have and that’s what you strive to achieve. Maybe it’s a little bit of your own variation but typically, it is super similar to what you’ve seen created around you.

And there is nothing wrong with that, nothing at all.

But what if you’re that little girl who not only daydreamed about an extraordinary life but also somehow knew that it was actually possible?

Surrender

Surrender

Today was full. It was a lot. My brain feels a little mushy right now, to be honest, but I also feel extremely grateful.

I decided to hibernate this week. I decreased my social media use by 90%. I have turned my phone off most of the day each day. I pushed back my client calls and prerecorded my group trainings instead of hosting them live. Continue reading “Surrender”

Be Proud of Your Body

Be Proud of Your Body

You’re allowed to be proud of your body.

In fact, you SHOULD be proud of your own body. Especially if it’s something you’ve had to fight to build.

You see, I’ve always been the skinny girl. Like unhealthily skinny. I wasn’t unhappy with the way I looked but I didn’t feel good…ever.

Yep, I was sick almost every day.

And the doctors told me that was just something I would have to deal with… along with an old knee injury that would flare up from time to time and a lower back injury that hurt me everyday.

Just something I would have to live with? I think not. Continue reading “Be Proud of Your Body”

Fear

Fear

FEAR. It’s always present…no matter what “level” you think you’re at, no matter what type of change you’re facing. Fear is always present, whether you want to admit it or not. Here are all examples from conversations I’ve had recently:

>Reviewing a contract for a million dollar purchase agreement that means owning his dream business.
>Doubling her location size and adding a $300 additional expense weekly, but being able to expand clientele for the first time in 2 years.
>Looking his choices and reality in the face and forcing himself to tell the truth for the first time in his life.

Each person at a different place in their life.
Each person facing something that is BIG for them.
Each person feeling the reality of FEAR based upon being presented with something new, different, uncomfortable.
Each person standing in front of an opportunity to GROW in so many ways.
