this is your sign

When it comes to your dreams…

If it doesn’t happen immediately, that shouldn’t be a sign that you should move on. 

That should be your sign to commit to your growth.

That should be your sign to trust that initial spark and believe that you received that vision because it was for you to complete.

That should be your sign to push through the fears and see what beauty can unfold.

sometimes the greatest luxury is doing nothing

It’s time to give yourself the greatest of luxuries—a moment of pure, unadulterated nothingness. 

Let go of consistent striving.

Surrender to the quiet whispers of serenity.

And allow yourself the gift of simply being human.

Untethered from the relentless demands of modern life. 

And I get it.

There’s an incessant chatter of obligations tugging at your soul.

A never ending list of things you should be doing that you haven’t done yet. 

Endless notifications.

Phone calls to return.

And opportunities that you don’t want to miss. 

But trust me,

In the gentle ebb and flow of intentional slowness you’ll find this secret.

Giving yourself time to rest, increases your productivity. 

So ease off the accelerator.

Let the currents of life carry you.

Even if only for a fleeting moment into the meaningful embrace of peace.

zoom out

My hope is that when you zoom out and take a look at your life that you see that you’ve done more good than harm.

That you’ve chosen whenever possible to love instead of hate.

Encourage instead of stifle.

Live out loud instead of hiding away.

And if you feel like that’s not the case yet, here’s a friendly reminder that it’s possible to make tiny changes in this direction.

I believe in you. 

let’s talk about cultivating inner peace

Peace is not the absence of conflict.

It’s a state of being. 

It’s the understanding that we are all connected

and that our actions have an impact on others.

It’s acknowledging that bad things will happen.

but remembering that we have the opportunity to decide how we respond. 

It’s believing that the best way to find harmony 

is to live in alignment with our values

Cultivate peace within yourself first 

and it will radiate outwards, 

creating a more peaceful world.

Here’s how to truly shine

In your most challenging moments, it’s easy to fall back into old patterns. 

To forget your progress.

To feel defeated.

To want to quit. 

But today’s opportunity is to remember that this season is designed to help you grow. 

This season might be confusing and at times exhausting. 

But you can’t avoid it. 

You just have to make your way through it with as much dignity and grace as you can muster. 

Make decisions with courage, not out of fear.

Make changes if necessary. 

And believe that you are being refined through this moment. 

You are becoming a wiser, more loving, more beautiful version of you.

Don’t let self doubt dim your light. 

Permission to live your life to the fullest

Imagine a tiny thread connecting your heart to all the other hearts of the people you love

the people you know

the people you grew apart from

the people you passed on the street without even noticing

The people in your neighborhood

in your city

in your country

in the entire world

Of all the people in all the world, you are literally the only version of you. 

Your individuality matters.

Your unique differences make you magical.

But we are also naturally connected

To everything that was

Everything that is

Everything that ever will be 

Collectively tangled up in each other’s destinies. 

Do the thing you were meant to do.

Because the world needs you to do that thing. 

Imagine how many people you can inspire simply by living your life to the fullest. 

For anybody feeling anxious

I feel like someone needs to hear this:

It’s okay to feel anxious.
It’s okay to feel overwhelmed.
It’s okay to feel lonely.

You don’t have to take advantage of this moment of uncertainty.

There’s a time for productivity…and it’s okay if right now isn’t that time for you.

Go slower than normal right now.

Get rest when you need it.

But when you’re ready, you can define your new normal and develop structure that gives you balance.

The easiest way to challenge your anxious mind is to question your thoughts. Ask yourself these questions:

Is this true? Or am I assuming the worst?

Is this something I can solve right now? Or is this a problem for future me to solve?

And my personal favorite: What if I decided not to worry about this at all? What if I just wrote down my fears and let them go?
