I received a message today from a follower who was having a hard time "letting go." In her mind, she was wrong and "dumb" for holding on to something that ended so long ago. I reassured her that you're never wrong for how you feel. When someone tries to deny your feelings, it's like they're telling you to stop telling the truth. Don't ever allow someone to dismiss, bring down or deny what you feel. There's also nothing wrong with feeling what you feel. Now, what she was wondering was something that could have been simply solved by asking a question to another. Her fear was "looking dumb." In my eyes, I told her that if she didn't ask, she'd always wonder. No one has time wondering. Pride is something that is something swallowed.

A girl standing alone is not waiting for you.... Stand confidentially in the direction of your goals. Trust the process, the journey, the timing. Live for the moments, places and things that take your breath away. Stand strong, tall and proud of who you are...today. Have the courage to stay patient for what you deserve and never settle for anything less because your fear it may not come. Be you & own it. You're worth the wait.

In life, we never know what shots we will make and the ones we won't. Whether it is in people, careers or new destinations... we won't know until we try. Often times, however, our fear of striking out keeps us from taking chances to what could potentially be the greatest shot of our lives. If you're looking for a sign you're on the right path, sometimes you just have to go on faith. Take the leap. Fall. Prevail. Win.

"Love doesn't mean you don't fight. It means that when the fighting stops, the love is still there."
People may disagree, but I think there's different forms of love. I don't think a love for a child is equal as to loving a spouse. Personally, I feel they are different, thus making the statement in my eyes false. I think a love for a child is far more sacrificial and is done despite how many arguments is had. I think in a spouse, there needs to be a greater level of purpose behind arguments and far greater level of respect. It takes two to do make love as it does to make up. It takes two to want it enough to put aside pride. Choose wisely.

I recently received an email from a follower wondering/asking when to walk away from what feels like a dead relationship. This question is always challenging to answer, because I think we ultimately are the only ones who know when we're ready. Then I remember to ask myself, are we ever ready? There are some things you can prepare for in life, then there are other things that are just kind of thrown in your path and you can't just ignore them. They are roadblocks and effect the journey. I've learned that this is okay. It's ok to hit these roadblocks; almost necessary. I think what's difficult to grasp is that the things that are holding us from moving forward are the same people who once helped us feel free, happy and unstoppable. Yet, they're now in our way. It's even weirder how the person that once allowed you to drop your guard is the same person who gives you 100 other reasons to put it back up. You're going to hit roadblocks in life, but it should never be from someone on your team. Sweetheart, know your worth. Know what you bring to the table and remember what kind of person you said you'd never settle for. Be brave, be unstoppable and don't be afraid of taking the journey alone. A woman standing alone is not waiting for you to save her. Walk alone if you must, but never settle for less than you deserve because baby, you're worth it. #loveyourself #neversettle #mediocre #journey

"You should really give a fuck. You really should.
But only about things that set your soul on fire. Save your fucks for magical shit."
Life's a little too short to lose sleep on the insignificant matters in life. Whenever I find myself caring a little too much about things out of my control, I remember that all I can do is make sure I'm a good person (in my eyes). Show up, be present and give it all you've got. You can't make everyone happy and not everyone's drama is worthy of your time. Choose wisely. There are people out there with way more serious problems to be allowing small matters that won't matter a year from now to stop you from reaching your greatest potential. Keep doing you, babe. It was never about you anyway. #prayforthem #iprayforyou #lifequotes

Throughout high school and college, I suffered from severe anxiety attacks when it came to #publicspeaking. I avoided it at all cost, even dropping out of classes to avoid my fears. I even had my therapist write a letter to my professors so that I could avoid them. (Extreme, I know) Nonetheless, I'm still working extremely hard to overcome my fear. I think that with anything in life, the more you avoid things..the more challenging they become. I think it goes the same for love. No matter how hurt you've been, you can't avoid love. The more you avoid it, the more difficult it becomes when you're confronted with the opportunity. For the longest time, when I'd date, I was like a wall. Guys would talk to me and I'd stare back with hardly any emotion. Truth is, I built a wall to guard and protect myself. Problem is that it did nothing for me, other than hinder me from possibly meeting a great person and even avoiding growth. I think that in life, you can't avoid the inevitable. You've got to put yourself out there and try more, because at the end of the day... what's going to happen, will. Showing up is the most difficult part, but you have to. #effort #growth

I've found that growth is uniquely defined person to person. For some, it's growth financially and for others it is happiness. As a 27 year old, I've found that twenties are a lot of soul-searching, path taking and most of all, about choices. Every single choice we make has some sort of effect on us- whether we'd like to admit it, there's consequences, good and bad for each. I spent a majority of my early twenties tied to one focus. That effected my ability to grow into any other aspect because is all I cared about. In my mid-twenties, I focused a lot on healing, reflecting on my past, my youth and finding me. That journey has probably been the most gratifying since and also, the most painful. I shed a lot of tears, lost a lot of people and also grew as a person- individually. I basically shed a layer of skin and grew stronger and can say I'm 150% a different person. That's crazy! Today, I'm 27 and still learning, growing and hoping to evolve. I'm much more aware of who I am than I did at 25. Two years alone made a difference. I'm so happy with all the paths, choices and routes so far. They weren't always fun in the moments and didn't always make sense, but thank the gods that I had the faith to see something bigger than just that day. You're worth so much than what you're currently dealing with and I believe you're capable and will do more. So, trust me when I say that you do not have to succumb to growth. Yes, it's painful. Yes, it's challenging. Yes, you'll lose, overcome, feel, gravitate and long for- but I promise you'll also learn to let go, stand tall on your own, rely on no one for your happiness and smile. My greatest accomplishment today has been the ability to sit in my own thoughts. I know so many people who cannot and it's ok, their time will come too. There is no greater day than that which you realize you're amazingly powerful.
