Gulp. A few months off from the blog was unintended I assure you. (Insert sheepish grin).
But I see now that I really needed to take a break so I could keep coming to these videos with my full authenticity.
As much as I want to be as consistent as I can with my blog videos, I know I am doing nobody any good if I crank out half-hearted attempts at videos just to “be consistent.” Consistency means nothing if the intentionality isn’t there.
But fortunately, I’ve made it through the portal of an an unexpected and obscenely busy work schedule and have landed on the other side with some fresh insights on what it means to follow your authenticity…even when it’s not taking you where you feel comfortable going.

Perhaps, the part of you that drops the ball on your weekly vide blogs for months at time, for example. Just keeping it real folks.
I’m not perfect, and neither are you. Phew. Doesn’t that make things easier now? So, let’s stop the charade and move towards embracing ourselves where we are and as we are so that we can move forward out of deep love and compassion for self, one clumsy step at a time!
Onwards and upwards,
We’ve all got a little warrior in us somewhere! For me, my “training” as a wee-warrior began as the youngest of five girls. With my fearless sisters and single mom (with six sisters of her own!) leading the way for me, ...
