You Can’t Skip The Stuff In The Middle

I know that the stuff in the middle is the hardest part. When you are working hard to be ignorant to your own truth you often numb yourself from your reality. #human Once you take the step into the journey of feeling, acknowledging and healing, shit gets real. 😔It’s not glamorous and it doesn’t feel good. The natural inclination is to recede or find a way around it. 🤦‍♀️ Acknowledging the truth of it can be helpful - not as a way to commiserate but as a way to put truth to the process. #iseeyou Going through the muck is the way to get to the other side. I know no other way. When you are in that painful spot of seeing what is and allowing it to...

The real reason I love Eliud Kipchoge for running a marathon in under 2 hours

We can all agree that most of us don't follow the sport of long distance running.   Am I right?   In fact, most of us have probably never watched a long distance running race with the sole purpose to see who wins it. If we have watched a marathon it was most likely because someone we knew and loved was running their race and we wanted to support them.   So why are millions of non-marathon watching people wholeheartedly celebrating the fact that Eliud Kipchoge smashed the two-hour marathon barrier?   I believe it's because we want to know that it's possible to do the seemingly impossible and when someone changes our perception of what's possible, it makes us feel  inspired and hopeful.  We love to piggyback off the emotions of someone...

When It’s All Said And Done And It’s Not Enough

Tell me, in your dream of dreams - what would your perfectly designed life look like? What kind of car would you drive? Where would your house be? How many kids would you have? Would you have a dog? How many vacations would you take and where would you go? How much money would you make? Who would you be walking through life with holding your hand and what would your ultimate chosen work be?  Imagine how your life would look in great detail ...

Straight Talk About Self Love & Self Care

I have started and stopped this post 6 times in as many months. What I desire is some straight talk around what it means to truly embrace the concept of self love and self honouring. Self care - if you will.  In the absence of deep ongoing acts of self nourishment, here's what it's not: ** pedicures ** ** 10 minutes of solitude ** ** massages ** ** 60 min meetups with our bestie** I love it all (especially the massages).  I really do. But can we please stop pretending that these "moments" are enough.  They aren't. These things feel good and often become our lifeline, but in the absence of deeper acts of self honouring,  they are simply bandaids.   Twenty examples of what it really means to love and honour...

Four Ways To Benefit From Meditating – Without Actually Meditating

If you’re like me, nailing my butt to a meditation pillow is a colossal lesson in self-discipline. And before you tell me that the discipline is part of the point, let me share my perspective. My modern day take on why most people believe they “should” meditate is because they want what they perceive meditating will help them achieve: more peace, relaxation and self-awareness.   Disclaimer: That's me. You may be different and if so, put your "why" for wanting to meditate in place of peace, relaxation and self-awareness   If meditation is working well for you then I encourage you to keep at it. If you find meditation isn’t happening for you or if you go in and out of periods of meditating with little success, then I...

That time I pressed the PAUSE button –

I can’t tell you the exact moment when I realized that my constant striving for answers outside of myself wasn’t working for me but suffice to say, how I was feeling about my life wasn’t matching my achievement. It made me push a giant pause button - on almost everything. I resisted setting goals that were beyond the scope of my own inner connection. 🙋‍♀️ It felt good to be really okay with being where I was without pushing myself to get anywhere else. (A first for me). It was the best gift I have ever given myself. Slowing down to re-remember who I AM has allowed me to stand with confidence in the decision and goals I now make > that are deeply connected...
