Choosing a Different Sidewalk

By | Goddess Wisdom, Wisdom Blog | No Comments

My friend and fellow Everyday Goddess Peggy Nolan reminded me of a story the other day. It goes something like this:

—“I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost… I am helpless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I can't believe I am in the same place.
But, it isn't my fault.
It still takes me a long time to get out.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in. It's a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault. I get out immediately.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

I walk down another street.”

In today's video, we talk about how to acknowledge the hole, thank it for being there, and finally make the choice to go down a different sidewalk.

 

How Do You See Yourself?

By | Goddess Wisdom, Wisdom Blog | No Comments

Several months back I wrote a blog post about Intimacy: Into Me You See. At that time in my life, I was looking for my Soul Mate, someone who could see into me; someone who “got” me. But what I realized was that I could never find this Soul Mate until I could really see into myself, really get to know the woman in the mirror.

Yes, we've talked about Facing the Woman in the Mirror before, but I'm guessing that you only scratched the surface with that assessment. But you are more than your roles, your personality characteristics. In today's video I challenge you to find that more. Keep asking yourself, “Who am I?” until you get to the bottom of the well. Dive deep. What you find there might surprise you. I bet you're stronger than you know, more courageous, more daring, more perfectly imperfect…

What Are Your Triggers?

In today's video, I get really vulnerable and talk about my battle with anorexia on camera for the first time. Even if you don't suffer from body dissatisfaction or an eating disorder, this video pertains to you. Why? Because we all have struggles – things we've been working on healing for years. And just when we think we've got the issue healed, life throws us a curve ball. This video discusses just how to handle those curve balls.

Enjoy!
