Romance Your Creativity

Romance Your Creativity

“Romance your creativity”. I remember the first time I heard this concept several years ago. I was reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert for the first time (yes, I’ve read/listened to that book well over 30 times. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend you do) and I realized I had been doing that without really knowing it.

I would light a candle, put on the right music, and sit down with a great cup of coffee. The vibe was right and I’d totally get into the zone. I even did this when I was in my 9-5 when I really needed to concentrate in on a project.

Here’s what I know to be true…

Here’s what I know to be true…

Here’s what I know to be true….

You’re never sent down a path you’re not meant to travel.

Even if said path is a total out of the blue left turn, if it’s where you’re feeling called to go, trust me when I say take that damn path! Because what you can’t see yet is where it’s taking you and more importantly, WHY.

That paths sole purpose may be meant to wipe the slate clean, rip the remaining layers back, strip you down into this creature that had been fighting to get out, and then circle you back to what your soul longed for all along. Continue reading “Here’s what I know to be true…”

Open to Receiving

Open to Receiving

When you’ve been silently winning battles and totally transforming yourself knowing in your bones that everything is playing out the way it’s supposed to… even in those moments where all you want to do is to have it RIGHT NOW and it’s really hard you can still see so clearly that this is just another piece of what has to transpire in order for you to actually get that thing you want so badly in the first place… you keep the faith. You stay vibing as high as possible. You keep believing that the universe has your back and that things always happen in divine timing.

And then one day you’ll find yourself standing in the middle of what you wanted so badly and you’ll almost be scared to even allow yourself to feel giddy for fear that it might not last or might not be real. Continue reading “Open to Receiving”

Fridays

Fridays

A long time ago I decided I would never do calls on Fridays. I set Friday aside as a day for me to do whatever I wanted or needed to do. Sometimes that meant a day of fun, sometimes that meant catching up on all the shit that I didn’t get to the rest of the week, and sometimes I used it if someone needs to reschedule and it’s the only time that works.

Either way, it was and still is a catch all day for me and I super enjoy having it that way.

Then about a year ago a long time client of mine signed back up and Friday mornings was the only time that worked for him. So we started the schedule of Friday morning calls.

Yep, broke my own rule on that one… but here is why:

This client and I vibe so freaking well that our calls very rarely drain me. Even if they’re emotional or deep, I still walk away feeling super energized for my day. Maybe its purely the intention I put in, maybe it’s the fact that he’s awesome, or maybe it’s the fact that this guys MAKES SHIT HAPPEN. Over close to 4 years of working together I’ve watched him shift so many things into creating the exact visions he had from the first conversation we ever had. And he just keeps doing the things.

Security

Security

Security. For a lot of my life it was something I felt I desperately wanted someone else to provide but was always something I was left without every time.

So I shifted. I created patterns and habits to prevent myself from feeling that disappointment or fear. I built walls and towers to stay just far enough away that people didn’t get too close.

I would call before they had the chance to not choose me. I would make the date before anyone had to opportunity to forget or not make it a priority. I would “check in” to try and feel like I was helping but what I was really doing was fulfilling something within myself that needed to feel wanted. A desire that given the previously described habits, I never actually let anyone show up and fulfill for me in the first place. Continue reading “Security”

Designing A Life You Love

“You’re working on the cruise?! Why??”

“Just turn your phone off and enjoy yourself.”

“What if something work related triggers you and ruins your whole day?”

These are all comments I’ve heard over the past couple of days after I last minute jumped on a boat for the next 10 days… First off, yes, I am working in the ship because my life is my work. It doesn’t feel like work most of the time. Sometimes it does but even in those moments,I’ve created this lifestyle so it’s all just a part of how I do life every day. That doesn’t change no matter where I am. And it’s truly a beautiful thing.

When your work lights up your soul and fuels you, it’s not a thing you “have” to do. It’s something you GET to do! Continue reading “Designing A Life You Love”

Choose Joy

Choose Joy

Ya know what’s fun?

Being happy.
Choosing joy.
Even when darkness creeps in, choosing not to let it stay. Honoring it, looking at it, but letting it go and doing whatever it takes to choose happy again.

Happiness truly is a choice. One you get to make every morning and then a thousand more times all day, every day. Continue reading “Choose Joy”
