It's Time You Showed up for Life

Up until recently I hadn’t been sharing, posting, or uploading to any social media platform. With Instagram being my platform of choice, I was still active in that I was scrolling and double tapping and commenting when inspired to do so though sharing what was happening on this side of the screen wasn’t happening.

Rather than worrying about whether or not we’re meeting the requirements or expectations put into place by others, we can choose to turn the attention inwards and focus on the person we want to be when showing up.

Courage & the Choice to Be Ourselves

Over the course of a month I was on the receiving end of criticism, judgement, and even a few derogatory terms because a choice I was considering was unpopular. Certain comments hit me much like a wrecking ball because I had shelved everything else as I directed and devoted my full effort, energy, and focus to the one thing I was now considering walking away from.

PIVOT: Resilience (Part Two)

You are going to run into naysayers and people who doubt your ideas or ability when you are breaking the mold to do something different. If your life matters to you, and it absofuckinglutely should, you’ll politely tell these people to kick rocks as you move forward in your purpose.

Is the perpetual quest for more holding us back from experiencing enough?

For the record, I am all for reevaluating our current state of affairs and wanting more for ourselves & our lives in a next level of true fulfillment sort of way. It is by no means selfish to want more regardless of where that “more” falls. To me, wanting & asking for more means you have evolved. You’ve learned what is no longer a fit for your life because you've outgrown where you're currently at for one reason or another.

Grace Isn’t Reserved Only for the Spiritual

You’ve heard me bang on about really l-i-v-i-n-g life, as in living the life you want for yourself regardless of outside opinions and traditional or societal norms.
