Calling all wild and free spirits:

If you’ve been drawn to follow your fire, I KNOW that you have a soul call to tap into a bigger purpose, unleash your confidence, and walk in truth.

You long to create a life that is TRULY lived, wild, untamed, yet also fulfilling, balanced, and fun.

I know that you’ve been brought here on purpose and that the longing inside of your soul is no accident - it’s a potential. And let’s take back that word potential, shall we? It’s not a weight - it’s a possibility.

Right here and now, rather than being crushed by potential and what you “should” have been, why not unearth who you really are? Why not find your superpowers, your genius, your gifts, your weirdness, your creativity, your inner child, fly the freak flag, find your tribe, and - most importantly - your truth??

Here, we’re gonna unlearn societal beliefs and expectations that are keeping you stuck, expose the lies that you’ve been told that are really just keeping you caged, and rewire your mind and belief systems to create a life filled with meaning, purpose, and that feeling of wholeness that you’ve always ached for.

It’s time to stop living two lives: the one you actually have and the one you think you SHOULD have had. Enough! Right here and now, you are rising up and fully living THIS life. I will hand you the keys to unlock the truth, purpose, potential, and meaning inside your soul and life’s calling.

But it starts with you and it starts here and it starts now.

If you’re ready to walk with me in a spiritual, mental, and physical awakening, rise up in all of your power and actually change in your life, if you are ready to follow your fire, this is the place and the tribe for you.

I’m so happy you’re here. Let’s do this.

    20. Lazy? Unproductive? Stuck? How to Love Your Lowest Self

    20. Lazy? Unproductive? Stuck? How to Love Your Lowest Self

    If you struggle with changing your life, today’s episode is for you.

    Maybe you want to get in shape, change careers, leave (or find) a relationship. Maybe you want a clean house or a well-behaved child or to actually finish writing that book.

    You might tell people that these are things you want, you might even snip out pictures and put them on a vision board or write about them in a journal - but are you acting like someone who wants that thing?

    Are you sacrificing your chillaxing time to meal prep, or dealing with the discomfort of giving your kid consequences?

    Are you waking up early to type that manuscript, or going out on awkward dates to try and find that relationship?

    No?

    If you’re not, do you feel like crap about this? Do you sit with not just the weight of an unachieved life, but also the shame of knowing that you SHOULD be doing that thing, or being that person, but you’re just NOT?

    If you’re in a space where you’re executing goals and changing the landscape of your life – rock on. Those seasons are incredible.

    But ya know what other seasons are incredible? The ones where we meet ourselves exactly where we’re at.

    The seasons where we decide we’re not gonna hate ourselves for NOT being productive, brave, or ambitious.

    How do we actually do that? Listen to today’s episode to find out.

    19. How to Feel Good Enough About 2020

    19. How to Feel Good Enough About 2020

    As we reach the end of 2020, here are some ideas for how to feel “good enough” about one of the most difficult years most of us have ever experienced.

    What I mean is...

    Did you get out of shape? Not follow through on things you thought you might? Did you fall short in some friendships, or self-work, or ventures you had planned?

    You’re not alone. It’s enough to have merely survived.

    Enough “shoulding” about what you did or didn’t do - time to make peace with 2020 and let go.

    Whether you achieved your wildest dreams in 2020 or you barely washed your hair, this episode covers how to feel “enough” about the year we are leaving in order to embrace the new year and all that it will bring.

    Mentioned in today’s episode:

    On “surge capacity”:

    18. How the Road to a Great Life is Paved with Shitty First Steps

    18. How the Road to a Great Life is Paved with Shitty First Steps

    People often say they want great things in their life.

    But if you’re not willing to be bad at something, take imperfect steps, and patch together a “good enough” idea while your magnum opus accumulates with experience, you might not ever get your greatness out into the world.

    If you’re not willing to make bad art, you might not get to your great art. If you’re not willing to go on imperfect dates, you might not find that partner they were leading to.

    Today’s episode is a guide to taking “shitty” steps that lead to the great life you desire.

    We draw on wisdom from the great patron saints of creating and living while imperfect: Anne Lamott, Julia Cameron, and others who believe the road to your dreams is paved with typos, confusion, and sometimes shitty, embarrassing, perfectly imperfect awkward steps.

    If you’re ready to get unstuck and take some exciting and imperfect steps, I encourage you to listen to today’s episode.

    17. How a Foundation of Trust Can Guide You Through Life

    17. How a Foundation of Trust Can Guide You Through Life

    It’s time to build a solid foundation.

    As we all grapple with an ongoing pandemic, deep grief at the normalcy we’ve lost, wildfires, climate events, a political climate that can make anyone wanna crawl under a rock, and then just everyday life on top of it, feeling shaky is pretty understandable.

    That’s why this week we’re going to talk about how to be guided by a sturdy foundation, no matter what is happening in life. Rather than acting from fear, scarcity, and the frantic idea that you need to be somewhere you’re not, we’re going to discuss how to reach toward an inner well of steadiness.

    If you want less fear, uncertainty, and insecurity, and are ready for MORE trust, peace, and reliance on your own power, I encourage you to listen to today’s episode.

    16. How to Leap into Action Toward Your Dreams

    16. How to Leap into Action Toward Your Dreams

    Changing your life isn’t just deciding what you want and making plans – it’s moving toward your dream imperfectly and full of fear.

    Leaping is taking action that risks something - like (gasp!) your pride. But how do we actually do that?

    If you’ve ever wondered how to move from the thinking and planning stage toward action that changes things, today’s episode is for you.

    We’ll talk about what’s standing between you and the changes you want to make, as well as what you can do to leap toward that life today.

    And since it *is* the night before my birthday and all, I’m also asking you for a little favor. This favor involves you taking some exciting leaps into action yourself.

    Are you game to help me ring in my 36th year? That’s what I thought.

    Check out today’s episode and - if you really want to amp up the birthday celebration for me - please rate and leave a review of the show if you like what you hear.

    15. Handling Criticism and Confrontation (Bonus Art of Social Media Exercise)

    15. Handling Criticism and Confrontation (Bonus Art of Social Media Exercise)

    If you’re alive long enough, you’re going to be criticized. And if you dare to share an opinion (or vulnerable part of yourself) on social media, you might even meet some trolls.

    So how do we prevent ourselves from shrinking in the face of conflict?

    How do we meet criticism with grace, perseverance, and the grit necessary to live a big and juicy life?

    Today’s episode is for you if you’ve ever struggled with confrontation, worried about other people’s differing opinions, or found yourself tied up in knots watching other people get trolled online.

    The way we show up matters, and learning how to navigate conflict and criticism (whether on social media or in regular life) can make all the difference.
