If you've been on social media in the past two weeks, you've probably been inundated with thousands of ideas around goal setting, New Years Resolutions, and plans for radical life changes as a new year rolls in. Whether your energy vibe is all about setting goals and smashing them, or you find this all rather exhausting and overwhelming, we are breaking down the need-to-know details about setting goals, to help you have a more successful pursuit towards change (whatever that
To my fellow ladies: Forget what our society has told you. Release your mind of what social media makes you believe you should have. Let go of the longing to be enough. For every mean girl, jackass guy, or collection of people who made you believe there is something wrong with you, I offer you the truth. You are perfect. Just as you are. Yes, you have flaws and imperfections. But they are beautiful and unique. A combination as unique as you was not created by chance. It was i
As I spend more time on this earth and exploring every crook of this body, I have become increasingly aware of myself – of the way my energy rises and falls with the season and the moon; of the tendencies that bring me safety and the habits that lead to disconnection. The more time I have spent with myself, the more I have become aware that I (like you) am complex and ever-changing. Nothing remains the same, and nothing is as simple as it seems. Hours digging through dark co
Recently, I was blessed to sit in a room with a group of dynamic and brilliant women. Each woman was unique, linked to the others only by a commitment to spend the morning learning more about herself. We began sharing our unique experiences and goals - drawing out, visioning, and chasing the lives our hearts were calling for. As I looked around the room and listened to these women, it suddenly became clear that there was far more linking us than our love to learn and create.
What is it to be confident? At its core, confidence is the outward appearance of internal courage. It is finding the fire within yourself to face your fears; to step, dive or fall right into your discomfort. It is making the choice to move forward, while trusting that the universe will have your back. To be confident is to make the bold decision to do that which scares you. It is to trust your heart, push past the sweaty palms and butterflies, and step directly into the thing
It was only when I learned how to love myself unconditionally that I became capable of loving another. I grew up hearing that "it is only when you love yourself that someone else can love you". I'm calling a bluff on that - and for all my single ladies out there who are wondering where their dream partner is, please don't believe that you haven't met them yet because of how you love yourself. Truth is - there are billions of people out there, and no matter how you feel about
You stand in front of the mirror every morning and stare back at your hopeful self. You think “when I lose 5 lbs, when these love handles finally disappear, when my abs are peaking out – then I will be happy”. I am here to ask you to stop waiting to be happy with your body. The truth is, no change to how our bodies look will ever bring real (& lasting) happiness! Sure – it might make us happy for some amount of time, but soon enough we will find something else that needs to b
Just as we can be sure that the sun will awake us each day, we can be sure that we are deserving of love, respect, and beauty. You deserve: eye contact

We live in a world of social sharing and growing expectations. We load ourselves with long to-do lists and hold ourselves at remarkably high standards. And, we watch as the people we know share photos, stories, and posts about the awesome things happening in their lives. And then, no matter how hard we try, we find ourselves feeling ‘not good enough.’ It is time to let go of the limiting voice of ‘not good enough’. Give rise to the voice of the best you – the one that recogni
You are beautiful.
Inside and out.
From within burns a fire
That lights up the night sky.
You bring peace where there is struggle,
and joy where there is sadness. You are the best version of you,
Shining bright for all to see.
Let nobody kill that flame,
Nor darken your lively soul
Because you (yes you!) offer opportunity
Where all hope and possibility has been lost. You, my dear, are a striking mirror
Giving others the chance to see their own beauty.
You are a g
We live in a world where social media replaces calling old friends, where you can open your computer to a highlight reel of your friends lives, and where it becomes significantly easier than it was for our parents’ to harshly judge ourselves and our accomplishments. When you live in this world, it becomes normal to think that you aren’t good enough, you aren’t working hard enough, or that you aren’t accomplishing enough. It’s time to face this head on: this thinking has got t
There I was - a young adult who doesn't quite know what her place in the world looks like. I was awkward and unsure of who I was and what I wanted. I was uncomfortable in my own skin. I criticized everything - from how I looked and stacked up in accomplishments all the way to what others were wearing, saying, and doing. It was not on purpose - don't get me wrong. By nature, I love everyone. And I hate judgment and inequality. And yet, when I really sat with myself, I noticed
As a confidence coach, I specialize in helping my fellow ladies find their unique identity, creating healthier relationships with ourselves and the people in our lives. I am constantly inspired by the women I am fortunate to coach. When we step into who we are, we become fierce and begin to uncover possibilities and opportunities we previously thought impossible. Here are three things that I love the most about coaching clients. These moments are the birthplace of that fierce
Work, relationships, appearance, money – no matter what it is, society has trained us to believe that the more we have, the better off we are. The result? This unrealistic and unending chase for more, in an effort to make ourselves feel worthy and accomplished. And this unrealistic chase manifests as unhappiness, sadness, and the exact opposite of the feeling that we were trying to find. Chasing worthiness through abundance will leave you feeling unworthy. Shift your thinking
Think about a hobby/habit that you have worked at bringing into your life. Maybe it's a recent commitment to running daily, or a long held desire and effort to eat healthy and fuel your body right. Or, perhaps it's nothing health-related, but rather a new instrument that you're learning to play. Now, think back to a time when someone noticed your commitment to this new habit and had the boldness to recognize you as an 'expert' of that habit. Stranger: Wow! You must be a runne
As we undergo growth, development, and change, we are constantly making decisions – choices that may influence the rest of our lives. As you embark down your path – career, spiritual, health, or otherwise – remember this brilliant piece of advice below. With every decision we make, we should consider what the long-term implications are. Is this change going to take me away from who I want to be? Will it bring me temporary happiness or lead towards lifelong bliss? There is no
We committed to one week of #positivevibes as a gift to ourselves, as a chance to celebrate the wonderful things this world has to offer. We pushed ourselves to eliminate complaints, judgments, and negativity. Though it wasn’t always easy, it was worth it. The effects and lessons learned along the way were worth the commitment. what i learned when i committed to sharing #positivevibes for a week: There is something to smile about in every day The world goes on no matter how y
