The Stories We Tell

“Pay attention to what you pay attention to.”

We all tell ourselves stories.

Day in and day out, our lives are defined by the stories going on in our heads whether we’re consciously aware of them or not. If you want to become aware of the stories you’re telling, all you have to do is look around. All of our most commonly told stories are reinforced by physical evidence. That’s because they’ve been practiced so much that they’ve become beliefs – keeping us in a holding pattern of living the same thing over and over again.

Happy Wednesday, perpetual transitioners!

Do you ever feel like you’re in a state of constant transition? That you’re on the way to something and never quite there yet?

The Anatomy of Stuckness

I opened my email this morning to the treat of a quote that pretty much sums up the biggest life lesson I’ve learned over the past 3 months. Bear with me as we may all breathe a sigh of exasperation at how seemingly obvious it is.

Embrace Being Awkward AF

I think we need to get away from this model of success porn. That success is sexy and perfect! It’s an image of success that men have put on us, in a way. It can’t be that the only way that you can show up to a professional situation is if you spend four hours getting ready that morning. Men don’t have to do that! That is not equality. That you have to pay $300 for a glam squad to get you suitable for public consumption is garbage! And we have to get away from it.”
