Day 2 of the Joy Challenge: Connect With Yourself

If you stripped down to the very base of yourself – if we took away your job, your bank account, your schooling, your relationship status – who would you be?

Do you have any clue?

Answering this question can be incredibly hard. I get it, love.

You wear so many masks during your day and try so hard to please other people, that your own desires, preferences and unique strengths get overlooked. And pretty soon, you forget what those desires, preferences and unique strengths even are!

Day 1 of the Joy Challenge : Develop Fierce Self-Love

STEP ONE: DEVELOP FIERCE SELF-LOVE

Joyful living starts with loving yourself. And there’s no way around it, babe.

If you want to make big changes or reinvent your world, you’ve got to cultivate a strong sense of self-worth, develop inner resilience, and practice kindness towards yourself without an agenda of improvement.

That’s why this first step of The Joy Equation is a call to action to start at the beginning — the very act of falling in love with YOU.

Answers to the Question: "Why Camp?"

Every day this past week, I’ve been sitting down to write welcome postcards to Campers who are going to be joining me in August. It’s sacred and special because I’m welcoming women to the inaugural year of one of my lifelong dreams — a Summer Camp for Grown Ups.

(Or as I’ve been calling it on Twitter — Camp for Grown Ass Ladies!)

As I write each name and address out, I spend a moment throwing out a wish that she’ll receive everything she’s craving from our 5 days together. I spend a moment hoping that we’ll all get to see her authentic self emerge over campfires and canoe races and intimate cabin conversations. And I spend a long moment wondering why this particular woman from Ohio or Alberta or Michigan is coming to Camp.

I Want My Work to Feel Like Play + Photos from the Elevate Retreat

I want to be joyful above all else, but also in union, of service, divine and wild.

I want my work to feel like play.

I want to create with fire in my belly, because I see a need in the world that I can ease. I want to be proud of my process, proud of my product, proud of my power.

I want my clients and my community to know that I love them in all their messiness because I do. I want being on retreat (or camp) with me to feel inspiring, raw, supportive and magical. I want to remember that I don’t take on others’ heaviness or fears or despair — I simply listen and love and offer my gifts.

Letting Go of What Other People Think

Letting Go of What Other People Think

I have no idea who said or wrote this quote, but I love it. Your opinion of me is none of my business. It’s my mantra when I’m trying to extricate myself from doing *something* in the world in order to earn my gold star or avoid judgement. It’s my mantra when I let fear…
