Womp Womp…

I fell off the wagon. And, Uber picked me up. January 1st I committed to posting 360 items through the year – 1 post per day- with the idea that I would have 5 passes, if I post on the 5 passes then that’s 5 bonus posts for the year. All in all, the goal was   is to discard items and experience life with less stuff and more living.

I writing this today because I am heading out of town again 🙂 and will not be back to writing consistently for a few more days. In kindness to myself and the process, this is okay. It truly is. Since the initiation of this project, I have let go of some mediocre items and some serious sentimental items. The project is far from over – I will attempt to double up some edits so I can “catch up” to my plan.

While I was away, I was gifted an incredible experience in Miami with 46 lululemon employees from around the globe. We attended the World Happiness Summit together, practiced yoga with world class teachers, ate arepas [I am in love], met our CEO and top executives, connected over life, love and luon, paddleboarded at sunset, tried Poke, seized any and all moments to sit in the warm Miami sun, and embraced the experience head on with 14 hours of technology free time. I walked away from my #wohasu experience with greater clarity on life and love. Personal Choice has a new meaning to me and the beauty of choosing happiness is that happiness is our birthright, we do not need earn happiness or buy happiness, we are happiness. Be. We are human beings.

Wake Better. 

“Of all the judgement we pass in life, none is as important as the one we pass on ourselves.” ~ Nathaniel Branden

Of all the judgement we pass in life, none is as important as the one we pass on ourselves. This quote speaks to my soul this morning as I wake in hotel room after hours of studying Self yesterday. I’m overwhelmed with emotion and information, the intensity of gratitude is visible by the tears in my eyes and my heart feels to have grown in my chest. I’m filled with emotion for my younger self, for she carried a burden of unsatisfactory and ‘not good enough’. I stand here for her, for my younger self, I stand here for my present self, I stand her for my future self, in the truth of the events of life and the meanings I gave the events. I stand here with realization that I was always enough and what I did yesterday is what I did and what takes place today will take place in the space and realm of today. 

I wake renewed and in awe of life. May we step out in a new light today, in a new world where we love life and live powerfully.
