Challenging you to LOOK to NOURISH yourself

You are truly special.

In the honest moments I’ve shared with many of you, I’ve been AMAZED time and time again by your depth… your raw and unique beauty… your sassiness! … your quirky and brilliant superpowers and talents… and especially your good-heartedness and unshakeable integrity, even and ESPECIALLY when you’re knee-deep in some pretty tough stuff. 

But instead of appreciating these things about yourself, you beat yourself up for not being good enough…qualified enough…pretty enough…skinny enough… and even for NOT DOING enough! 

And you’re not alone. 

We’re all GUILTY of it. Instead of seeing and appreciating the good in ourselves and using it to live our lives with ease and passion and CONFIDENCE, we devote an ABSURD amount of energy to comparing ourselves to our culture’s ideals and trying to contort ourselves like Cirque du Soleil gymnasts to fit into them!

No WONDER we end up feeling like CRAP!!

So this week, I dare you to quit your toxic “comparing and despairing,” and instead choose to NOURISH yourself with a kinder practice.

I dare you to get to know the YOU that you’ve been hiding from us (and yourself!)

I dare you to look in the mirror with honest curiosity! and challenge yourself to find the things about you and in you that make you feel WHOLE, HEALED, CAPABLE and more than ENOUGH.

So, my heroes, I CHALLENGE YOU to CEASE your in-fighting and SURRENDER! and instead, devote yourself to a NEW, more NOURISHING mission: to thoroughly scour your inner and outer life for rock-solid evidence of your unique AMAZINGNESS, not just today… but EVERY SINGLE DAY this week …. so that soon, with consistent practice, you can experience the FREEDOM, PEACE and recharged sense of CONFIDENCE that come along with your budding self-acceptance.

Because it’s time you SEE yourself for the unbelievable person you ALREADY are.

Challenging you to TRANSFORM your inner TURMOIL into TENACITY

It’s not an easy task to see how AMAZING you are, especially when day after day that inner voice of yours persists in its laser-focused and damn-near infallible mission to keep you SMALL and SAFE.

It tells you you’re not ENOUGH, when you are toying with the idea of putting yourself out there and taking a risk to make yourself happier. 

So instead of courageously chasing your dream and supporting yourself, you’re scared into submission… and trudge through your days wishing for MORE and hoping someone will SAVE you from the STATUS QUO (or planning a vacation to ESCAPE it all, right?)

I’m talking about that inner voice who tells you you’re going to end up ALONE ...leaving you feeling pathetic and sad, INSTEAD of feeling really proud of yourself for bravely listening to your gut and letting go of a relationship that wouldn’t fulfill you in the long-run (and you KNOW it.)

And watch out for this weekend! When that inner voice tells you you’re UNDISCIPLINED and makes you feel guilty and like you’re not doing enough… when you’ve taken care of and NOURISHED yourself all week… and you’re just trying to enjoy yourself at a freakin’ summer barbecue!!! 

So this week, ENOUGH is ENOUGH.

I DARE YOU to EMPOWER yourself and CHOOSE to CHANGE the CONVERSATION. 

I dare you to THANK your inner voice for its input, but CHOOSE to handle things on your OWN from now on… noticing that without hearing that voice’s negativity for a while you might not have had a REASON to WAKE UP and see/appreciate the brighter side of everything. (Because of the beautiful Law of Polarity.)

And now, I dare you to redirect your energy away from inner TURMOIL into a newfound inner TENACITY to create a more supportive and KINDER relationship with yourself.

So, today and throughout this week, I CHALLENGE YOU to discover a SELF-KINDNESS PRACTICE that actually works for you, so that you can apply it easily to your life to transform your inner dialogue into a more loving and INSPIRED conversation that will support you in the hard times and when you’re flying HIGH, now and THROUGHOUT your life. (See the resources below!)
