It’s Easier To Start From The Beginning Than It Is To Look Back And Learn Our Lessons…

January 5, 2023

There was a time when the end of the year was all hype and goals, and I used to think that was how I was going to make sure I had the most AMAZING year of my life.

I created extraordinary things in my life, but I repeated a lot of the same mistakes and life felt pretty chaotic most of the time, even without a busy schedule. (I worked about 3 hours a day, weekdays.)

And for a while, that was awesome. Who cares how chaotic it is when you are creating true freedom in life right!?

But as I grew I began to recognize the ache in my body for stability. Peace. Grounded power. I began to see my kid’s need for me to be more feet on the ground and tuned in to them and regular life.

I began to see the toll on my body of the constant chaos.

I started to see how much I was taken advantage of because I was missing so many things as I flew by and then checked out to recover a bit.

So I set out to find the most extraordinary humans to learn from. And honestly? It was way harder than I anticipated it to be.
It is a hell of a transition to go from being super skilled (at surviving) to being a beginner with essentially ZERO skills to thrive.

But I learned. AND IT WAS SO WORTH IT.

I spent an entire year of my brain melting and I learned. And I can see now how I made it harder than it needed to be without realizing it.

There are skills like how to respond vs react (but I mean actually being able to do it, not just know about it.)… boundaries, speaking up….

And ALL OF THIS could have been avoided if I had just realized how many things I was telling myself I knew that I wasn’t implementing… because I COUDLN’T SEE IT.

We look and look for the thing we don’t already know as if that will change everything. And every now and again it does… but 80% of the time… all we needed to do is be able to SEE what we can’t see about what we ALREADY KNOW.

This is the deep, powerful work we are doing in New Years Revolution.

I’ve taken all the best of my own mentors and experiences, and mixed it together to create a process that CHANGED MY WHOLE LIFE.

It’s so important to me that I am running it every year in January so we can all do it together.

This is for you if:
>You desire to LEARN every little thing you can from all of your mistakes.
>You want life to feel and BE more magical (not just in theory)
>You have felt anxiety or frustration this year and want to leave that energy in 2022.
>The year feels like it was chaos and a bit of a blur, but you desire to feel more tuned in and intentional.
>You just want to do this well and not hype your goals and then lose track in 3 months.

Here’s to showing up and actually creating the most extraordinary year!

My Conversation with Thich Nhat Hanh

What?! You mean… compassion for others includes the woman lying and hurting the man I love? It includes compassion for her?
That’s easy for you to say.
You don’t have a wife or kids that you love like I love them.
What’s that you say?
That’s how you love EVERYTHING? All humans? All animals and sentient beings?

Not My Place To Get Someone To See the “Truth”…

For as long as I can remember I have always felt responsible for helping others see the things that they cannot see… the boyfriend on drugs, the way they are being taken advantage of, the abuse happening…
I have always suffered deeply to see anyone else suffering ESPECIALLY when I can see a way for their suffering to end!
This is what drove me so hard to break out of all of the abuse I was experiencing, go to school for 10 years while working and being a single mother with almost zero child support, start my business and make my first Mill in 2 years… THAT is a lot of drive, and it ALL came from MY WANTING TO END OTHERS SUFFERING.

What I Resist, I Empower

I see this belief lately that “standing for a world where race & religion do not matter is naive.”
(And abusive)
It’s popped up a number of times in my feed and then once now in my own life.
”It’s exclusive and doesn’t account for all the biases happening today. Anyone who believes this only believes it because they don’t get it. They aren’t the ones experiencing the racism, sexism or etc.”
I understand the basis of this.

Someone Told Me “You are not as enlightened as you think you are.”

And I wondered what that meant? What an unusual statement?
I realized that there’s a whole entire culture referred to as “woke” which couldn’t possibly believe more differently than my mentors who are considered “enlightened”. Which was she referring to?
And I chuckled.
I’m definitely not either…
Talk about a wild time to exist looking to find your way to a life full of joy and peace!

Meditation Breakthrough

New one hour meditations….
I’m beginning to see what’s underneath all the crap….
I’m wildly resisting the reality of what’s happening to people and animals in the world… It feels like it cracks my brain and will burry me to accept it.

I Was Being A Hypocrite

Sometimes we expect people to handle things even better than we are capable of handling them simply because society would agree that’s how it should be handled.
But that’s still hypocrisy…
Just because we can make the best argument for that being how it should have been handled… (womennnnnn lol)
