I've Been Hiding From You

It’s so easy to think we are fully expressing ourselves when we’re not. When we’re still filtering. Still playing into the “good girl” paradigm.

We must be loving, kind and not offensive. We must be a lot of things to fit into other people’s boxes.

But do you know who that never works out for?

Yeah, YOU.

How do you expect to be “authentic” if authenticity is about playing into what you think needs to be said? If it’s about checking the boxes of what others expect you to say and do?

I’m not talking surface level here. Go deeper. 

Who are You?

You are a beautiful blend of light and darkness. You cannot leave that darkness in the dark.

Take it. Be it. Understand that it is part of you and it is fucking perfect. It is there FOR you.

Write Your Desires Into Life

Here’s the deal: words mean nothing without feeling. Images mean nothing without feeling. The key to everything I’m about to tell you is tapping into your feelings. Before, I would journal and write affirmations about who I wanted to be what I wanted to do what I wanted to have. You may have heard this, the be, do, have affirmations. Many coaches teach this. SImply write out these affirmations daily and you will see them begin to happen.

This is absolutely true! You can literally write your reality into existence- I do it daily- BUT, it took me a long time to understand how to actually make this work for me. And it all boils down to the one concept that I will talk about until I am blue in the face:

You must harness the feelings of what your heart desires for journaling and visualization to truly, deeply work for you.

The Root of Excuses- And how to move into Action.

How many times per day do you find yourself making excuses for where you are, or where you can’t be?

You see the women who “have it all” and scoff at their success. Well, she’s prettier than me/doesn’t have kids/has so much time- insert your excuses here as to why SHE can have it but not YOU. 

I’m here to call bullshit on your silly excuses. Why? Because I am sick and tired of excuses. And let me tell you, I used to be the Queen of Excuses. I’m going to let you in on a secret here: that one excuse you have as to why you can’t have it- it’s going to lead to more excuses. You will never ever run out of excuses unless you wake up and choose to see it differently.

3 Questions to Ask When Your Business is Stuck in a "Fail" Cycle.

 used to find myself thinking back on this nearly three-year journey in my online business and feeling much resentment towards some of the advice I was given in the beginning.

I was so convinced that I needed to follow the most successful woman's five-step-formula-to-success that any time an idea popped up I would immediately throw it into the five-step process and kill it with overthinking, overcomplicating and straight up confusion. 

Formulas are great- when you create them to work with you. But they're not so great when they become that rigid structure to which you must fit everything into to meet your idea of success. used to find myself thinking back on this nearly three-year journey in my online business and feeling much resentment towards some of the advice I was given in the beginning.

Coming Back to You.

he answer was always coming back to Me. The only struggle was that what felt right in my heart was not supported by the outside beliefs I had picked up throughout my life. I was still trying to fit into an idea of myself that was Created by others- not by Me. 

In what ways are you still not Being You? It can be a process to unravel all of these ideas and beliefs about ourselves that we've picked up along our journeys, but the more you ask to see, the more of YOU you WILL see.
