Please do NOT…..

I can’t with the FEARS!

I’m not who…

I’m going to just say that the Universe, God, Spirit, Almighty One, whatever you want to call the thing out there that is bigger than everything- the one that the words don’t even exist in our language to be able to describe – is pretty awesome and amazing. I’m not in a whimsical high of life being just perfect, but this thing that is out there is showing up and helping me help life in a major way!

Cannot wait to read this!

This is the story….

Today, I’m at the gym, with my husband, two things that never use to happen. I’m sitting in the sauna and I’m on LinkedIn which I never really say anything on because I don’t know, I am usually afraid of being myself and then my shit just sounds cheesy and stupid- I can’t stand the ingenuity of it. But now- now I don’t really care!

Then I saw this….

So I’m in the sauna and come across this video….

PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEO!

You are not who the world says you are…

YOU ARE WHO YOU SAY YOU ARE!

And this is what’s up….

My observations have been, companies keep around sub-par employees to play it safe and get rid of, run off, or exploit the good ones because….they just…

“ARE NOT A GOOD FIT”-

No I don’t fit in with your politics, ulterior motives, judgements, and petty displays of an exterior act that is comedy. Why has it become a “culture competition” with all these management companies? I’ve said it once and I will say it again… that “culture” is not what it appears to be on the outside and will not satisfy a conscience connected professional…. because at the end of the day….it’s about hard work, grit, mentorship, drive, the good times, and the bad. “Even when it’s not pretty” (The Invitation).

Not everyone can think outside their fear….

So if you feel like there’s something not right where your at ….

and you eventually end up, not there, for whatever reason….

even when it what YOU thought YOU always wanted….

AND IT HURTS “YOU”

The Invitation

The Invitation
It doesn’t interest me
what you do for a living.
I want to know
what you ache for
and if you dare to dream
of meeting your heart’s longing.
It doesn’t interest me
how old you are.
I want to know 
if you will risk 
looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me
what planets are 
squaring your moon...
I want to know
if you have touched
the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened
by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know
if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know
if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you 
to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us
to be careful
to be realistic
to remember the limitations
of being human.

It doesn’t interest me
if the story you are telling me
is true.
I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear
the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.

I want to know
if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,
“Yes.”

It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live
or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me
who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me
where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know 
what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know
if you can be alone 
with yourself
and if you truly like
the company you keep
in the empty moments.

Wisdom shared can be common ground.

Today I had lunch with a mentor of mine, Dr. Debbie Phillips, long time friend and C.E.O. Who splits his work between Atlanta (where I grew up) and Denver (where I am now…. still evolving). Typically going into a meeting like this I have it together, so I think. But not today, I’m a complete open canvas.

I have not reported to an outside job for going on 3 weeks and I’ve been working through learning to just be. The truth is, I couldn’t tell you the last time I had 3 weeks off without having that part of my mind filled with anticipation for what awaits me on my return. I don’t have a work email to not check and punish myself when I do check it before I get out of bed. I have only the keys to things I own and they are a lot lighter.

In my meeting today, I was able to have an honest conversation with an executive who has been through numerous years of hard work and sacrificed personal relationships and wellbeing at times, as a result. Going back he shared that quality of life is the most important thing. Even if one makes less money but can live on it and trade the rat race for time with loved ones, he advised supporting such a decision. He also shed some light on non-conventional ways to earn money. I desire freedom in time spent whenever possible in a business and professional arena. Thinking outside the box….doing something different even if unconventional or not clearly defined just yet…I think to myself today….why not ME? Why not try?

My days are spent are present than ever. I have laughed more with friends than I have in a long time. I have cared for those I love and listened to them without anticipation of the next moment or thing. I have creative energy, love, gratitude, and relief all wrapped up in one. I can pause without struggle or guilt. I am traveling through a period of restoration and reconstruction of my soul. I feel in line with life’s rhythm and not swimming up stream. My mind is open and completely listening to everything the universe and spiritual presence is pouring into me. I’m teachable, I no longer have a plan, I am at peace.❤️

Somewhere over the rainbow… your fears will come true and you will be FINE!

jamaicatiTwo weeks ago, I got …. I can’t even say it, I resigned and left a company I placed high expectations on, drank their cool-aid, and still I wasn’t accepted! I have not considered myself material of being not particularly liked for my super high energy, high excitement, results driven mentality before. I never thought anyone would find it threatening enough to sabotage my enthusiasm the way it went at this company. I had my biggest fear come true, despite all my efforts to try to avoid the inevitable, it happened and my career just broke open unexpectedly. It happened and I lived!

There are a million perspectives I could choose to view the event from. Some of them simple and expected, some beyond how I ever thought I would. I have been working as a Property Manager for 8 years. I have seen the good, the bad, the really good, and the unimaginable. The natural way I would have responded to this opposition in the past was sadness, anger, and hate. How could they not like ME!?!

The ME has evolved a whole lot over the past decade. The ME is no longer linked to the external and the opinions, acceptance, or rejection from others and from life. I no longer define myself by what I do, by how I look, or how you feel about me on any given day. ME is now separated from those things ran by the ego, ME is a soul having a human experience.

I heard a quote once that said,”My enemies tried to drown me nut they didn’t know that I could breathe under water.” (Author unknown). This phrase has always stuck in my head since I heard it years ago. Mermaids never learn to breathe under water, the just know. Breathing under water is symbolic to resilience in the human experience.

Your one stop shop for remembering the important things and living with intention and presence – Right NOW.

I have been on the brink of exploding for a while now. I have been doing life as life is “suppose” to be done for years and have it all! I have a great home, husband, dogs, family, and my health. But I still would feel just raw and unfulfilled and I didn’t know why. When one achieves success as the world depicts it to be, it is easy not to change anything and just keep showing up and “loving” what you do. But do you really “LOVE” it? Is this where one is suppose to be or is it

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
