This is Me: Real and Raw

For today all I can do is write. Sometimes the weight of the world, as we call it, feels debilitatingly heavy. Today I am having a really difficult time being in a body.

I'll Tell You What's Not OK

Multiple times over this past week I read messages and/or posts from other teachers/coaches/mentors about being stuck. i.e. – Do you feel stuck? Are your lacking direction? Do you feel unclear about what's next in life? I remember a time when I was reeeally stuck. I had reached a point where I was draining my energy daily putting others first, my Heart...
