Unity. Kindness. THIS is who we are.
Today marked the inauguration of the new US President.
Exhale fear. Return it to sender with consciousness attached.
Expand your energy…bigger. bigger. Expand.
Remember that fear (and narcissists) will do everything possible to convince you that you are helpless and broken.
Here’s the truth: you have the ability and power to create. WE the people create change.
We stand for unity. We stand for kindness. We stand for equality. THIS is who we are.

I don’t have “a word” for 2017. This was really bothering me until a day ago. Would I be missing out on something if I didn’t find the perfect word?
Ah, the pressure. 😉
The truth is, while 2016 was an excellent year for me. I played safe. I needed to play safe. I slowed down. I played, a lot. I rested. I healed my body.
My words for 2016 were Leap, Receive, and Trust. A trifecta of sorts, which were all very present for me. (I had to do some digging to remember what my words were for the year. But looking at my year, those words were very much a part of my year.)
We’ve felt it haven’t we? The shifts. The shadow. The discomfort. The awakening.
I haven’t known quite what to say yet regarding recent world events – the elections, Standing Rock, shootings, the division, and that’s just in the US. A few days after the election results came in, I was relieved to travel to Australia to speak at an event of over 150 SOULpreneurs.
My heart was able to heal a little so I could get grounded before I spoke out of pure fear, anger, or sadness. I was embraced by the most nurturing and kind people in Melbourne – thank you to Rachael Jayne Groover for the opportunity.

Can we get real about the glorified hustle?
I was living the dream and creating like a bad@$$, until I just couldn’t do it anymore.
I’m hearing more and more statements like that.
The glorified hustle often starts with, “How can I make money in the next 30 days?”
This “cash-injection marketing plan” becomes the drive to keep the momentum going.
Thus… the hustle has been initiated.
And so does the chasing. The scheming. The figuring out. The working hard.
This is the glorified path to burnout. We start out with great intentions, then naturally find ourselves in the “how” to make it all work. But the “how” never leads to freedom, despite our most noble efforts.
When I learned this principle of Connection Points vs Creation Points, it blew my world open.
One of the things I’ve struggled with since a child, is finding people who wanted to CREATE more. Often times as an adult, I feel alone in my strong drive to move mountains to create new possibilities and paths. Granted, this isn’t the truth, but it’s often how I feel.
For people who know me personally, know that I move fast. When I’m clear and I know what I desire, I move really fast in that direction.
Where there is a “no,” I find another way.
While 2016 is around the corner, it doesn’t mean that it has to be this big reset that we make it out to be.
I find that putting so much pressure on changing your life, your business, your bank account, your body, your family… at the stroke of midnight on December 31st doesn’t actually create the desired outcome that we are seeking.
What if you scrapped New Years Resolutions completely and never looked back?
I stopped setting New Years Resolutions a few years ago and I’ve never felt so free. I’ve also created things in much easier ways than I used to. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
