Breaking the fear of success

Back in January/February, I had the opportunity to spend a long weekend in NYC. It was awesome. But…when I found out the address of the hotel, I felt so unworthy. As I was walking there, I passed over all of the fancy streets that you hear about in every movie about high-end NY. Park Avenue.Continue reading “Breaking the fear of success”

Triggers

Growing up, I always identified as smart. Ok…if I’m honest, that’s what I still identify with. Why? Well, it started with the voices that I allowed to shape my identity. For me, fun always equated with stupid (yes, super judgmental, I know) so I always prefer to be intense over fun. Something else that I’veContinue reading “Triggers”

Writing is my release. It is the way that I work through what’s raging in my head, in my life in a way that is productive instead of falling prey to self-destruction. It is something I do for ME. It is the way that I get my story out to the world in an understandableContinue reading

Metamorphosis

We all have core values…whether we define them more not. One of my core values is that I will always welcome challenges and change. Recently, I was given an opportunity to host a podcast.

I was, and frankly am, completely exhausted. From travel. From emotions. From making big decisions. From not-so-promising news. From life. Continue reading “Do the hard things”

What the fluff?!?!

This morning, I may have freaked out a little bit. I am leaving my job 😳 Yea, I made a rational decision based on evidence that it is time for me to leave. Yes, I know that I know that it’s the right decision for me, and this is the time that it needs toContinue reading “What the fluff?!?!”

Nothing is inconsequential to God…NOTHING

I’ve sponsored a kid through Compassion International off and on for 4-5 years. I’ve always thought highly of the organization. It is rated amongst the highest for its type of charity. A few years ago I had to stop sponsoring my first kid Peter from Uganda because of financial difficulties, and it was the mostContinue reading “Nothing is inconsequential to God…NOTHING”
