Your overwhelm is trying to talk to you

Your overwhelm is trying to talk to you.

When you are presented with a decision or choice to make, and your instant reaction is one of overwhelm … do you listen in to that intuitive guidance? Overwhelm, despite probably feeling like an annoyance, is actually your friend. It’s trying to talk to you and let you know what’s right – and not-so-right – for your body, mind and...

The beauty of being sick and tired.

We all know that phrase, ‘I’m sick and tired, of being sick and tired’ … but today I wanted to offer you a different perspective on feeling this way.  Often, we berate our bodies for feeling the way they do. As if our poor bodies are punishing us – through illness or burnout or exhaustion. But, really … there is...

Why I'm not interested in being exhausted anymore

Why I’m not interested in being exhausted anymore.

I’ve now entered my 30’s – and the one thing I am mega certain about as I move through this new milestone is this: I’m simply not interested in being exhausted and burnt out anymore. Can you relate? Over the years – in this crazy journey that we call life! – I have come to deeply believe that it is...

You don't always have to be busy

You don’t have to always be busy, to be a ‘good’ person.

Do you feel guilty when you have white space in your calendar?  In other words, when you have free time – do you allow yourself to rest, relax, and actually enjoy it?  In modern society, we are sooooo conditioned to think that ‘busy is better’; that the more we do the more ‘worthy’ we will be; that the more people we please...

Are you a people pleasing woman?

Are you a People Pleasing Woman?

Are you a People Pleasing Woman? Me, too! My whole life, it was reinforced to me – by the people in my immediate life, but also by the WORLD – that the more I pleased everyone, the more worthy I was.  I loved seeing the results of helping people, of doing what people asked of me, of being a ‘good girl’,...

Trusting who you are is enough

Trusting that who you are and what you’re doing is enough.

Do you trust that who you are and what you’re doing in life is enough?  I recently had an experience which changed my perspective of my own personal ‘enoughness’.  Of my recent few weeks in Bali, the first week was at a yoga retreat – one I’d already taken 5 or 6 years ago, one that I couldn’t wait to...

When self-care feels unattainable

When ‘self-care’ feels unattainable.

Self-care.  I’m the first to cringe internally when writing about or posting about this important topic. After all – who am I to preach about the value of self-care? I don’t have children. I have, what seems from the outside, to be a relatively calm, quiet and peaceful life. And yet.  There are still days (many days) in my life...

Perfect

Are you tired of beating yourself up?

I am not perfect, and I believe it is this very fact, that actually MAKES me perfect – even when I can’t see it. Because perfection is present in imperfection, in the individual idiosyncrasies + traits + characteristics that we each possess. But I have to keep reminding myself of this fact – that I am perfect, no matter how many...

What to do when you lose all faith

What to do when you lose all faith.

‘During uncertain times, the only path onward is the path inward’ ~ Martha Beck At the beginning of this year, for a period of time, I lost all faith in myself – in my abilities, in my business, in my dream of making a difference in the world.  At the time, I was truly exhausted. I had hosted a lot...
