Men (Video)

When we hear the truth, it compels us to almost immediately retell what we heard, write it down or, as in this instance, turn on the camera and ask him to say it aaagain (when he’s not done chewing just yet).

To all men and women involved romantically or wanting to be involved romantically, this is for you. It’s for all of us and I think it especially important hearing it from a man.

I’ll add. Ladies, think of yourselves longer and deeper than the excuse you make for why he is the way he is, add yourself and your wants, ideas and opinions into the conversation from the get-go (as my mother-in-law told me the day before her son and I got married, “be weary of what you start today, because you will continue to do it for the rest of your relationship”), don’t accept any threat to your self-worth (or freedom), nor a melancholy mismatch to your evolution or life vision.

Stop trying to fit a round peg into a square hole. There *are* men who will value you deeply, but you won’t meet them staying with the ones who don’t.

Fasting (See My Stories!)

Fasting (See My Stories!)

I love a sexy heel, but I’m more comfortable in hiking boots.

Ask me to choose between going to a fancy dinner or trek that next peak or valley (no matter how hot or heavy the pack), no matter if that peak or valley be physical, emotional or spiritual, and I’ll choose door number two every time. 

Never let a woman’s painted nails, profession or those heels (that can’t wait to come off) fool you…

Tomorrow, I start on my next three day water fast, which was first planned and trained for in 2019.

Back then, I ended up doing four days of a water fast in the wilderness. Only drinking water vs. abstaining from water, which is what some think it is] inside a nine day vision quest.

It was an awe-some, moving and tranquil experience (albeit a little dizzying at times being 7,000 feet up ~ but nothing compared to its physical, emotional and spiritual benefits).

This round, just like the last few. December of 2020 being the last fast, will support immune function, gut health & healing. I have healing to do, cell regeneration and a release of toxins.

Of course, chatting with your doctor or nutritionist is always recommended before doing one, but there are research articles and videos galore available online if you’re curious to learn more about the health benefits before speaking to a practitioner familiar with the practice.

THIS Is Your Inheritance!

THIS Is Your Inheritance!

YOU GOT YOU (this is your inheritance!).

*Creating a meaningful connection to ourselves* is the deepest of all work we don’t get paid for (in the traditional way).

But it’s the best work. Highest emotionally-paying work. What I believe we are all attempting to do when we say yes to any kind of personal development or therapy. As well as what we feel like inside (or after) experiences in adventure travel, dance, music or art…

We feel OF ourselves (belonging to ourselves) and we feel *more* ourselves.

THIS Is Your Inheritance!

This “meaningful connection to ourselves“ is what self-love IS and what it feels like.

The sense of self that knows, no matter who dies or what goes away (money, relationships, health or looks), that y o u got you.

You would know because you’ve gotten to know yourself so damn well (and always more to come and uncover) that you know, without a shadow of a doubt, that you are and would be your own ride or die.

This meaningful connection comes back to finding out who we REALLY are beneath it all. Not who others want you to be or who you, maybe, were to them *before*. And what we’re REALLY made of — proudly standing atop that life experience and, in many ways, atop the shoulders of ancestors whose life experiences we were also built *from* (this structure in Tulum back in November reminded me of my Mayan roots… innovative, strong of body, mind & spirit, mystical, deeply connected to nature…and to *their* nature).

I think many self-love articles leave many wondering, like, what is it…what is self-love really? It’s such an ethereal concept and it’s also not as “easy” as baths, time alone or communing with nature often.

For me, this deepest connection to myself has been found and re-found through acknowledging this. Where I come from. Specifically and generally, what I’ve lived through (owning my unique life experience) that leads me (you, too) to what we’re built for and most capable OF and going out and doing *that*

The pride and meaning found in that, in all of it…ooph!

THIS is our inheritance!! Do we need anything more?

Date Yourself! (Married Or Single Ladies)

Date Yourself! (Married Or Single Ladies)

I’m dating myself more these days. Every woman should date herself. Every woman can. That’s right… Date Yourself! (Married Or Single Ladies)!

It’s awesome to date Josh and I do, but this is a whole other delectable thing. 

For those married or single, it’s good to remember that love waits for no one and no thing.
