Once upon a time, there was a girl who had a dream, tucked in her ribcage right against her heart. She was afraid of risk, afraid of what might happen if she stepped out to pursue it, afraid of failure. But she did step out, telling herself to have faith, walking in the direction her […]

Motivation is sometimes a tricky thing, especially with so many other (shiny) things vying for your time. It’s easy to get distracted and veer off course. Or maybe it’s fear that’s got you demotivated so that you either slow down and/or don’t even start. Or perhaps, it’s self-doubt, which is also fear just dressed up
Compassion is what you feel when you see someone else struggling/suffering & your heart breaks for them so you want to help. Self-compassion is turning that same feeling of tenderness/kindness & wanting to help ease the struggling/suffering toward yourself.

I’m a huge believer in the power of tiny steps to take you wherever you want or need to go. Tiny steps will get you there slower, sure, but at least they’ll get you there. And in the end, that’s the goal, right? To get where you most want and/or need to be. So if
I know you may have deadlines, people counting on you, and/or a set-in-stone date when something is happening, but rushing yourself is just putting pressure on an already stressful situation. If you don’t thrive in stressful situations, if you are one of those people who shut down when they get overwhelmed, if you are even
If you find yourself unfulfilled in your own life, the reason why is that you’re likely not a priority in your own life. And when you don’t make time for yourself in your schedule, you end up living a life better suited to someone else. Maybe it won’t happen right away, but eventually, weeks/months/years/decades down
If you’re wondering why you don’t feel motivated/inspired/fulfilled/powerful in your life, I’d venture a guess that it’s because you’re not taking excellent care of yourself. So many of us (yes, my hand is raised) don’t care for ourselves in the way we most need. I know there’s a lot going on in your life. But,
If you’re not as happy as you’d like to be, there’s an easy way to fix that and be happier. All you have to do, I say kindly, is choose differently. Below are some things you can choose that will, I’d argue, make you feel happier and a lot more peaceful in your own life.
All of us, I’d argue, would say we want to be happy. And yet, so many of us deny ourselves the things that would bring us the most joy. Why? 1. You deny yourself joy if you believe you’re unworthy. If you don’t believe in your own worth and value, you don’t make much of
You need to stop wishing and start doing because wishing is nebulous and undefined. It’s you hoping you’ll get what you want at some unspecified point in the future. It’s you believing that maybe, somehow, it’ll magically show up in your life. Wishing lets you hang out in your comfort zone, tipped back in your
