NEW PODCAST! I've been speaking on several amazing podcasts lately and this was by far one of the most fun interviews. The women of @theamplifyco are insightful, fun and funny. We had a fantastic conversation about truth — accessing, listening to and honoring it — plus so much more.

How I feel when @ovonion makes my clothes! 💜

No one can steal your joy if you're unwilling to give it away.⠀

Stop entertaining them.⠀
Stop reposting them.⠀
Stop overanalyzing them.⠀
Stop social media stalking them.⠀
Stop complaining about them.⠀
Stop trying to figure them out.⠀
Just stop thinking about them. ⠀
(I bet they aren't thinking about you.)⠀

Focus on someone - something - else with all of your precious energy + time.⠀

Watch your wellspring of joy replenish + overflow.


Refuse to fall down⠀
If you cannot refuse to fall down,⠀
refuse to stay down.⠀
If you cannot refuse to stay down,⠀
lift your heart toward heaven,⠀
and like a hungry beggar, ⠀
ask that it be filled. ⠀

You may be pushed down.⠀
You may be kept from rising.⠀

But no one can keep you from lifting your heart toward heaven, only you.⠀

It is in the middle of misery⠀
that so much becomes clear.⠀

The one who says nothing good⠀
came of this, is not yet listening.⠀

- Clarissa Pinkola Estes

You cannot create the present you want by trying to change the past. ⠀⠀
Let that sh*t go and set yourself free.⠀⠀

Dear Warrior Soul,⠀

We need you.⠀

Stop hiding in the shadowy lies of uncertainty, hunting confirmation and affirmation and validation before living your truth.⠀

You already know what needs to be said. Say it.⠀

You already know what needs to be done. Do it.⠀

Show yourself and your children and your partner and your parents the truth of who you are.⠀

Wear it like a robe of light.⠀

Confess your strengths and your shortcomings.⠀

Declare your destiny and distractions.⠀

Unearth the force that moves you to freedom.⠀

You know what you were born to do, who you are primed to become.⠀

Do not try to hide or downplay or shrink. (It's too late. We already see your incandescent light.)⠀

We need you here - powerful and truthful and free.⠀

Straighten your crown and take your seat at the table.⠀

All my love,⠀


Some say the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice⠀

I say the darker the flesh then the deeper the roots⠀

I give a holler to my sisters on welfare⠀
Tupac cares, if don’t nobody else care⠀

I know they like to beat ya down a lot⠀
when you come around the block brothas clown a lot⠀

but please don’t cry, dry your eyes, never let up⠀

forgive but don’t forget, girl keep your head up.⠀

- TuPac Shakur

Let the beauty we love be what we do. ⠀
There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the ground.⠀

I got a cute face, chubby waist⠀⠀⠀
Thick legs, in shape⠀⠀⠀
Rump shakin’, both ways⠀⠀⠀
Make you do a double take⠀⠀⠀

Every week I send out love letters that help women move from self-actualized to soul powered.⠀

It's a spiritual journey for Warrior Souls.⠀

The function of art is to do more than tell it like it is - it's to imagine what's possible. - bell hooks


Miss the mark + overcompensate. Give what you can anyway.⠀

Overpromise + underdeliver. Commit to serving anyway.⠀

Be uncertain and unsure. Show up anyway.⠀

Watch registrations, hawk-eyed. And be disappointed by the slow trickle or overwhelmed by the flood. Open your doors anyway.⠀

Wake up, mind racing with a seemingly endless To Do list. Meditate anyway.⠀

Wait until the last minute to do what should have been done weeks ago. Schedule anyway.⠀

Spread yourself too thin + delegate to the wrong person. Ask for help anyway.⠀

Obsess about all of the details for weeks + still leave something out. Create what you want to experience anyway.⠀

Get itchy with jealousy about someone else shining brighter, speaking clearer, connecting bigger. Keep doing YOU anyway.⠀

Beat yourself up for not knowing enough, not being ready yet, not starting when you said you would. Trust your process and your path anyway.⠀

BECAUSE, the moment you open your doors (in your living room, online or in a swanky hotel suite), the right people will show up (be they 2 or 20). ⠀

They will be ready for whatever soul-anchored guidance and love-spurned generosity you have.⠀

They will you meet you where you are — as you will them.⠀

And your service, your humanity, your love will light the way and create the space for transcendence.⠀

No perfection required.⠀

This is about the willingness to show up. To serve. To supply what's needed to those who are ready to receive.⠀

All that's required is YOU.⠀
Human + devoted.⠀
Open + willing.⠀
Curious + true.⠀

SO, surrender to your path and the process. ⠀

Listen -- to your self and your soul. Apply each lesson learned to the next step in front of you. ⠀

Nap. Eat. Hydrate. Have amazing sex. Do your best. Breathe.⠀
