Words of Wisdom

On Relationships 

Even though we have this deep drive for love and connection, many of us have habitual thoughts patterns and beliefs that get in the way of being able to have that depth of love and connection that we’re hungry for.

Relationship work is self-work

On how to show up

I’m not really a fan of the guru model where I have all my ducks in a row and my life perfect and you should aspire to be like me, that’s not y style. I’m more of the love yourself where you’re at and learn to love and accept every single part of you even the inconvenient bits you wish didn’t exist. 

On Self-worth  

Very few of us are walking around with an intrinsic sense of our own value that’s not based on anything outside. I always really practice celebrating wins. 

On habits for success

I have a long time meditation practice, and I notice it if I start slipping it affects me. I don’t always sit for a long time but  I sit some.
