Letting Go This Year

The last week has been really introspective for me. I’m realizing more and more that I’ve fallen back into these old habits – the ones I thought I’d left behind long ago. I’ve pretended for a bit that I ditched them permanently. As if I’d packed them up in a suitcase, driven it out toContinue reading “Letting Go This Year”

Encouragement vs. Criticism

Last week, when my alarm went off, I looked at the clock, realized that not only was I feeling well-rested, but I also had plenty of time to hit snooze and get up 9 minutes later, refreshed and ready for what I needed to do.  And then I said out loud to myself, “Good job!”Continue reading “Encouragement vs. Criticism”

Boundaries (Part 3)

I’ve written about boundaries before , but it’s such a complex and universal subject that I have to keep going.  This time, I want to share the idea that boundaries are not simply lines that can’t be crossed. They can be seen that way because they can function that way. But they’re so much moreContinue reading “Boundaries (Part 3)”

Changing Beliefs = Changing Your Life

In my work, I help people see how their beliefs drive the way they interpret an experience, generate their emotional responses, and ultimately interact with the outside world. It’s a really useful tool to understand ourselves, and start to gain a sense of power over our choices and behaviors. Here’s an example to show whatContinue reading “Changing Beliefs = Changing Your Life”

Boundaries and Barriers

I’ve been writing and talking about boundaries a lot lately, and it’s because I think they’re so misunderstood. A lot of us think of boundaries as demands. So when we say things like, “I won’t be yelled at like that,” or, “I can’t be on call for you like this anymore,” that this is settingContinue reading “Boundaries and Barriers”

The World Needs You

I spread the message that knowing your Self is a massive component of accepting and loving you, because we can’t embody or express something that we don’t know. And if we don’t know who we are, it’s not just us that suffers, it’s the world too. Consider … The powerful force that makes Beyoncé shine.Continue reading “The World Needs You”

Saying No Is Actually Saying Yes

Here is an idea I’d like you to consider: No = yes, and yes = no. Think about it! When you say yes to something or someone, that usually means you have to say no to someone or something else. Alternatively, when you say no, that usually means you’ve got room to say yes toContinue reading “Saying No Is Actually Saying Yes”

Why Self Love?

When I talk about self love, I’m talking about developing your relationship with – and to – your Self. But what is the Self? Who is the self? And why develop that relationship? Here’s what I believe, and what my life and work have shown me: The Self is the unique, beautiful piece of youContinue reading “Why Self Love?”

Feelings and Their Foundations

We learned everything as we grew and developed. How to walk, talk, tie our shoes, ride a bike, read a book … you name it. We watched the people around us and learned from what we saw and what we were told, which was then reinforced by our environment and our interaction with it. FeelingsContinue reading “Feelings and Their Foundations”

My goal on this earth is to help as many people as possible to see, love, and accept their deepest, truest version of who they are, so that they can live the most beautiful and fulfilling life possible – the one they were uniquely made for. So I talk alot about learning to listen toContinue reading “Listen”
