There’s something about being both a Soft AND Solid woman that I couldn’t comprehend until I experienced the limitations of being too much of either, and the impact it had on both how I show up and on how I bring into my life what I want and deserve. And until I let myself fall… Continue reading Being a Soft AND Solid Woman
We see people everyday – their hair, their clothes, their faces, their shoes (maybe). We sometimes make quick judgements – he wears a suit, drives that car, works downtown so he must be X kind of person. She has red hair so she must be X kind of person. He works a 9-5 so he… Continue reading I See You. Three Sweet Words.
Change/a transition/starting something new/taking a leap can often bring out a side of us that can be foreign to who we think we are. We may fumble, feel unsure, unclear, overwhelmed, scattered (maybe leave the remote in the fridge and the milk in the cupboard…just me? As in, I’m the only one who still uses a… Continue reading Change: It’s a love/hate relationship (but mostly love)
Your heart knows what you really want and who you are even when you’re mind creates resistance because of fear. Your heart plays in the space of possibility and ever so cleverly shows you glimpses of what you desire (via a gut feeling, a sign, a question, a new thought, an intuition, a shift in perspective etc.) until… Continue reading Being honest with fear – the real innovator is scared to death
This has been one heck of year full of world travel, meaningful connection, heart ache, super highs, super lows, witnessing extreme poverty and also extreme wealth, new friends, a lotta laughs and face-hurting smiles. It was year of learning through contrasts of all sorts and as my 28th birthday approached (and recently passed), I… Continue reading 28 learning’s for 28 years
I’ve had the absolute privilege of learning about and experiencing a number of different cultures during my travels over the last few months and a few years ago as well. Even in the company I am currently working at, Mindvalley in Malaysia, there are 35+ countries represented in the office alone! While I love learning about the differences between cultures, I equally love observing and… Continue reading We all smile in the same language: Illustrated through an almost total face plant
This is an updated re-post from last year and it rings as true today as it ever has. Every father’s day I think about my life with many “dad-types”. I grew up not knowing my biological father, however, I have never looked at my situation as a disadvantage (no pitty party here!). In fact, I consider myself… Continue reading To all the “Dad’s” in my life, thank you.
Here’s a fun little exercise that a friend and I challenged each other to do a while ago that helped get us out of our current head space and into a hyper-motivated creative space; we called it playing with possibility. It’s only one of many exercises in the whole life-design process (and there are many versions). Ultimately it’s kind of like creating a bucket… Continue reading $300mil and 5 years, what would you do?
Although I’m no stranger to new cities, new schools, and new situations – I attended 3 different schools growing up, moved to Texas in my first year of university, to Vancouver in my second year of university, backpacked SE Asia in 2009, moved to Victoria for grad school, am now living in Malaysia for the summer etc. etc. – change… Continue reading Yes, change is scary, BUT…
12 months ago if you would have asked me where I would be spending the spring/summer months this year, no way I would have said India, Dubai and Malaysia, but keeping an open mind has led to some interesting opportunities and I am estatic about what’s coming up…when it feels right you just gotta run with it… #1 India Half my… Continue reading India, Dubai, Malaysia, oh my!
