"If there is something you want, go for it. Submit that article. Ask that person out. Book that solo trip. Order that second latte. Don’t let the call go unanswered.


Ask yourself this, if you never ask or do what is rising for you, are you ok with never having it? Are you fine with that? If even a tiny part of you answers with a hell no, then you need to do it.


Sometimes to follow the things that we want, we have to scare ourselves a little. This little jolt is a wake up call to our dormant system. It shakes our day-to-day survival system back to life and wakes us up.


As humans we can convince ourselves of anything. We’re good like that. Even when we want something so badly we can taste it, we sometimes convince ourselves that it’s better leaving it a dream.


This is your life. You have the power to create anything you want. Don’t walk away when something you badly want is on the table. If there is something that you love, you owe it to yourself to try.


Most of the time we believe in some tall tale about our unworthiness of it or some societal held belief that we shouldn’t have it for some reason. I am a firm believer that there is deep wisdom in honoring what calls to our spirits and seeing where it leads.


Sometimes we fear rejection the most in walking towards the flames of some long-held desire. Better to live with the after burn than to live with never knowing. It’s worth it."
