The Courage to Be Vulnerable

“The courage to be vulnerable is not about winning or losing, it's about the courage to show up when you can't predict or control the outcome.” ― Brene Brown, Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.

And those who *do* “show up” will be judged the most, but that’s okay, they’re the ones showing up. They’re the ones making real change and progress. And giving more love.

Let’s show up, k?

Self-Care

You can’t do it all.

Black and White Woman in Rain

You can’t do it all.

“It all” just means “stuff I’ll never be able to do because I’m not good enough, never have enough time for and not worthy of.”

Nah, forget that.

Instead, celebrate who you are right now. Learn from today, redirect if necessary, then celebrate tomorrow’s lessons when they come, too. That is truly all it takes to do “it all.”

Days Are Good

Amy Bellgardt - My 40 Life

I think the universe is on my side.

Heaven and earth have finally aligned.

Days are good and that’s the way it should be.

Anxiety is the Struggle

Anxiety in 40's

I struggle with anxiety. Massive anxiety, at times. I’ve worked very hard the past four years to learn healthy coping skills, how to pinpoint my triggers and the importance of listening to my body. It’s daily work, but work that has the best payoff – inner peace. Don’t get me wrong – this peace takes daily practice, habit, and routine. I’m not perfect at it in the least. I have days that I forget to prioritize it. Many days.

If you struggle with anxiety in any form, I understand you and know your fear. Very well. Please know that your love and light is stronger than your anxiety. The journey in finding the right path for YOUR peace is your own and I encourage you to start taking the steps (or crawls, if that is what it takes) towards this adventure for YOU.
