The last few days I’ve been hit in so many different directions.
I rarely actually let things get my down for long because I can see the divine timing, I can see the reasons, I can feel that even though some things are hard or heavy, they will be okay. and just because one thing is heavy, doesn’t mean everything is heavy.
I think we forget that sometimes, that just because one thing isn’t going great or hurts you, that doesn’t mean everything else automatically sucks too. Continue reading “The Last Few Days”
“To be calm is the highest achievement of the self.” -Zen proverb
Lately I’ve spent more time in stillness. I’ve learned that on my journey to know myself on a different level, slow has become my preferred place to be.
Even when things are swift or moving quickly, I find myself standing in it all very differently than I have before. Continue reading “Stillness”
We’ve all fallen into the cycle of saying YES too much, sometimes we don’t know how to break it. In my latest podcast episode, we talk about how to increase your self-awareness to start serving yourself in a better way. But what about the part where we do things a certain way because we think we’re “supposed to” ? Nobody seems to talk about the limits we place on ourselves or the ones that life has placed on us that we don’t even recognize sometimes.
Welp- in this episode we do just that!
Dive into the conversation of how to start really going deeper into living life on your terms.
Check it out now:
Being vulnerable never gets easier, even when it becomes your active way of engaging.
The thing that I find to be most challenging about vulnerability is letting go of the reaction others may have to it.
It can be crushing to be vulnerable, to really put yourself out there with someone only to have them turn away or choose that it’s too much.
But you have to remember two things…
1. You’re not doing this for them. Being vulnerable is a pure act of self love and living in your own truth, no matter what.
2. Someone’s reaction to you has absolutely nothing to do with you and has everything to do with them, their own situation, possibly their own fears, and the filter they choose to see life through.
So, you cannot take it personally.
Instead, you allow yourself to feel whatever feelings come up, honor them, dissect them if needed but then remind yourself how courageous you are and that vulnerability is a super power.
Those you are meant to be with along the way will cherish the rawness of you, not run from it.
I know my worth and last year I made a promise to myself that I would no longer allow anyone to be part time (or half-in) in my world. It’s either we’re in it or we’re not.
I’m not a fan of being something that’s only used when it’s convenient.
We don’t do lukewarm over here anymore.
And while I trust myself and honor that choice, it was difficult to implement and enforce at the beginning… until it became one of the most freeing things I’ve ever done. Continue reading “I Know My Worth”
