There is a common myth in society that we have to earn or prove our worth by ticking off a certain number of external achievements — like having a large house, successful career, impressive partner and acceptable body shape.
The truth is your worth is innate — you were born enough. You are a soul of divine origins and you can never be anything less than that. You did not come here to prove — you came here to play and laugh and love and learn and express and rise and create your wildest dreams. Have fun!
Comparison misses the…
I believe in mapping out a vision for your dream life, cultivating positive habits, and taking inspired action to make miracles happen.
But there is a downside to goal setting and the world of personal development — it can leave us feeling like we’re not enough until we reach our goals. We feel like unless we publish a New York Times best-selling book, meditate 365 days of the year, have only happy and loving thoughts 100 percent of the time, and immediately succeed at every single thing that we try, we suck.

Nobody wants to look at these questions.
That’s why the top regret of people on their deathbed is not living a life that was true to them, instead of the life others expected of them.

I want to share a really important nugget of wisdom with you today.
Triggers are your teacher.
Have you ever been scrolling through your social media feeds and suddenly you feel the twinge of negative emotion inside of you?
Then your mind starts to chatter about it. “I want what they have. I am not good enough. Who does she think she is. I wish I could do that. I suck. Life sucks. He is an idiot.”
Instead of taking the train to crazy town, I invite you to take a different approach. Ask yourself:
Why is this triggering me…
I have an important reminder for you this week:
You don’t need to go out and find what you desire… you need to BE it.
