Tell Me If This Ever Happened To You.

Last week I wrote about changing your story, a topic I could talk about for days. Mostly because it changed my freakin' life and I've seen that very act change the lives of countless women around the globe. Two days after that email landed in your inbox, my husband and I took on the hot-as-hell task of cleaning out our attic. Sweating our buns off looking through all the stuff we'd stored above our living space, I came across that folder. The one I never knew I saved, I actually couldn't believe I held onto it.

You’re The Author Of Your Story

Sometimes I get nauseas from seeing people say, "Choose JOY!" and life will always work out. Ummmm yeah, not exactly. We all know life is super complex. Yes, we have plenty of opportunities on daily basis to focus our energy on joy. When we do it does feel fanfreakintastic. Yet over all, choosing joy isn't always the answer. There's plenty of experiences in life, that bring us to our knees. Where we're begging for some type of fairy dust clarity to arrive on a magic carpet, so we make sense of how messy our lives feel. Especially when… [ Read more ]
