The Courage to be Different

When is the first time you remember someone telling you to change who you are? Were you too loud? Too quiet? Were your clothes too bright? Was your personality too much? We fail to see the power in being different when we are made to feel our differences make us defective. I often felt like […]

Courage to Step Into Your Power

It’s my birthday today. I’m now 33 years young. Lately, I’ve been feeling a mix of powerfulness and powerlessness. There is a still, small voice within that dares me to step fully into my power but I’m hesitant to step when the way is unclear. I question if what my heart desires can be made […]

What’s Your Why

What does it take to leap; to jump into the unknown? A simple decision. Decisions, however, can be difficult. So the question becomes why? Why do you want to lose the weight? Why do you want to make more money? Why are you studying for that next test? What is the result you are seeking? […]

The Failure to Try: Living With the Fixed Mindset

Yeah, sure, I may feel confident doing what comes easy to me, but what happens when I want to do something that I have to work at? Or I need to grow in an area of a “natural” skill but doing so could lead me to failure?
