You are not a number

You are not a number

The times when I feel closest to conquering my insecurities  is when I don't give a flying f*** about what anyone else thinks. And my actions come from a place of sincere love and egoless intention. 

I invite you to this mentality today in something that you do. Own what you're doing and why you're doing it. But make sure it is coming from a good place of love. And if the person you are with doesn't understand, I would second guess them.

My thoughts on cheating + Patagonia

My thoughts on cheating + Patagonia
As this new year starts. And you make your resolutions. To lose 10 lbs. To stop drinking wine every night. To sign up for a half marathon. Move to Colorado. Stop stressing out.  Stop living your life in fear. Think about the promise you are making to yourself. Or maybe to others, if they are involved. 
Don't break it. You will have to live with it. Even if it doesn't seem that serious. It's contagious. 
Don't cheat on yourself. On someone. Or on whatever you do. You're not a hero, even if you win. Or if no one finds out. You know. Be a man.

Why am I doing this?
To be honest, I'm sick of being comfortable. I need a little push. My comfort zone is a place where I don't like staying for very long. It can be a blessing and a curse because I tend to get very antsy. But in this case, it is a blessing. Stepping out of the safe place, where you tend to stay stagnant, will help you grow. And make you feel alive. 
In 2012, I moved to Tahiti with the hopes of traveling around the world. THAT was out of my comfort zone. And as difficult as it was at the time, as anxious as I felt for a long time before and during the trip, for fear of the unknown, I look back on that trip with extreme fondness. I am thankful for taking that leap. There I felt alive. This small challenge is another way to keep the flame going.

Women are truly from Venus + how to relax

Women are truly from Venus + how to relax
If you really want to relax (which I am diligently working on) you have to learn to let go. The reoccurring thoughts and judgements. The constant struggles that only you know about. And the superwoman cape that we all try to wear. Let someone else in for a moment to teach you something. Or help you. Then maybe you can learn how to relax like your significant other. On the couch. Watching Alaskan Bush People.
