Are you apologizing for your success?

Are you apologizing for your success?

When did it become so normal to apologize for our success? Frankly, we apologize for entirely too much. So much so that the value of the words “I’m sorry” doesn’t really hold much merit in a lot of situations.

When did “I’m not available at that time, I’m sorry” become the way we all auto respond to things that don’t fit specifically into someone else’s request? 

Whelp- It’s all very ass backwards if you ask me and it’s time it starts to shift.

Whirlwind

Whirlwind

Last week I found myself sitting in a quiet room housed within a building that was created in 1875 alongside the river in a small town that feels like it had to be here when America first started.

I knew I had a deadline that I was already past to deliver the latest podcast episode and then it dawned on me that I did not bring my ‘podcast notebook’ with me.

I’ve discovered that through giving yourself a little grace you allow yourself to truly feel what you need to feel when you need to feel it. Through grace I’ve discovered that pressuring yourself on a tight deadline every single day is the opposite of what creates the flow and alignment we all so desperately seek.

Through practicing grace I’ve discovered that if we choose to not only honor who we are and what we need but also give ourselves the compassion and space necessary to truly blossom into our greatest potential. Continue reading “Grace”

Coffee Shop Hustle and Bustle

Coffee Shop Hustle and Bustle

Coffee shop hustle and bustle. I wonder if what it is about this place. Well, not this place in particular but the coffee shop atmosphere in general. No matter what town I’m in, I can walk into a coffee shop and the vibe is the same.

There’s a creative energy in the air. Continue reading “Coffee Shop Hustle and Bustle”
