As I sit back and look on my life right now, I can understand why it reminds me of the Spring. The flowers are starting to bloom, growing into their full potential, becoming more beautiful and present everyday. The bad weather is still hanging around, but soon it will diminish and the clear skies will show through. The decisions and feelings waiver, just like the rain and the sun. But as more and more steps are made into the new day, everything starts to seem a little bit cleaner. Like the growth in spring, the growth in life is just as unknown, beautiful and rewarding.

Wonderful time meeting and talking to other entrepreneurs last night. It does something for the soul when you see other's passion for what they do. #tuesdaystoast #seattleentrepreneur #businessowner #seattle #theouteredge #mua #stylist #makeupartist #promakeupartist #girlboss #blessed #thankful #passion

Somewhere along the line, I stopped counting the days, but for as long as I live, I will never forget this day three years ago. The day I gave myself the greatest gift. The day I chose my life over my struggles. The day I saw what I could become if I only gave myself the chance. The day I got sober was the day I laid the foundation for the person I am now. This morning I gave a presentation to a room full of fellow entrepreneurs here in Seattle. I shared my passion for capturing the spirit and story of animals through stunning visual artwork. I shared my favorite images of the wonderful animals I have had the pleasure of photographing over the years. I shared my goals for my business. I asked for help in reaching those goals. I did not cry when the slide with my beloved Cohen's portrait filled the screen. I was able to share what he meant to me, and that felt better to my heart and soul than any glass of wine or fancy cocktail could ever measure up to. Three years can feel like forever, but it's only the beginning of the amazing things I have planned for this life. ❤️

A child knows the moment an adult is trying to fix them. A child knows when an adult is treating them like a damaged, broken, problem versus a creative, intelligent, person. I would be lying if I said I didn't fail at this from time to time, I do. But I am learning that if I really want to lead my girls to power, I must believe that they are the ones that attain it.

MOST RECENT

We took a moment today to reflect on what we built together. We are proud to have brought our vision to create a haven for movement to life. This is only the beginning! Today we spent the day working on what's next with Ara and organizing some exciting events this fall. 🌿

"I wish I had more badass female entrepreneur friends but they're hard to find in Seattle." -- a client said this to me during a consultation meeting last week. I was surprised at first because I'm surrounded by kickass biz women everyday BUT then I remembered that it's taken me years to build my network (going to events, introducing mutual friends, befriending clients etc...). If you're searching for more female friends in the Seattle business world my top tip is to check out The Riveter @theriveter_sea - Its an all women community work space (its gorgeous and good vibes are in the air). I was there this morning for a 645am networking group with my favorite badass business ladies. It may be tough at first but keep going up to random women and saying hi - we're all excited to make friends & help each other. Shoutout to Ashley of @unionpilates & Mellicia of @poplinstyle -- two of my fave entrepreneurs kicking ass at this table this morning! .

Which voice are you going to listen to?
~
I give an impromptu speech at my Toastmasters club today. Never written, never rehearsed, but I filmed it and posted it to YouTube. And yes, I could've done things better. I could've slowed down, used less "likes," and remembered the name of a book I referenced. But if I had been worried about that, and chose not to speak, I wouldn't have reached the person who said "I've been wanting to improve my professional speaking skills, but feared ridicule. Your speech made sense in a way that I feel encouraged now."
~
You will be ridiculed, and you will doubt yourself. But that's not a good enough reason to stop trying. Just like with dating. It doesn't matter if you have the perfect approach, it doesn't matter if you've been told that you're not enough. All that matters is that you keep trying. Again and again and again. To find that person who will totally and completely accept you for who you are.
~
There's a voice in my head that agrees with the critics. That I should edit and perfect my videos before posting them. That I shouldn't speak before I've practiced. And I'm all for constructive feedback and continuous improvement, but I've decided that what matters more is consistency, because that's what's going to help me reach the people I need to reach.
~
Listen to the people who need you to share your message. They are usually quiet, they are usually few, but they are out there. Thank you to the person who wrote me this note - it meant so much, and I can't wait to hear you speak.

The video is up - link in bio!
I used to avoid kids – with their staring and their questions. This would totally kill the vibe on dates, because the girl could tell that I was very uncomfortable. So I started to accept and invite their curiosity, and shared lots of laughter in the process. I'm so thankful to @storiesbycut for inviting me to capture this with their incredible @hihokids!

Thanks to the entire crew and the wonderful kids – with a special shout out to my little cousin Airah (in the red dress), for coming on set and getting me warmed up for the shoot!

I've been doing 3 YouTube videos a day, answering questions from guys on Reddit, and this reply really gave me pause.

I love being a dating coach, but I hate being a "dating coach" because it comes with implications, and questions like "so you just help guys get laid?" I've admittedly been shy about discussing sex. I've avoided talking about it too much. Because we're not supposed to. Because it's bad. Because it's taboo. Because my impressionable little cousins' friends are showing them everything I post.

Yet the reality is, if you haven't had sex by some point, you feel that something is wrong with you. And that causes people to have their first sexual experience with someone they don't care about. Like I did. Just to get it "over with." But it's not just "over with" like that. You always remember your first. I remember going home and crying, alone, because I felt so hollow, so ashamed, and so afraid, because I knew nothing of her sexual history. I used protection and thankfully tested clean, but I wondered why I would take that kind of risk with someone I barely knew, and possibly impact a future relationship with someone I did care for.
So yes, I do help guys get laid, but not just to lose their virginity. And not just for the physical satisfaction. But as part of deeply connecting with women. Because guys might act like they just want more notches on the belt, but deep down, we just want to share that connection with someone. We want that girlfriend to introduce to our parents, and to take to work parties, and to color coordinate with at family weddings.

And I encourage them to get tested, and to share results with their partners before becoming intimate. Even if they're virgins, because it's just a good habit.
So let's talk about sex, and how it can be a wonderful, loving, and giving act when you both cherish each other - and how that's the only kind of sex worth having.

There is no place in the natural world that says some are deserving and others are not. The sun doesn't stop shining on one person and continue to shine on another. The apple tree does not only make apples for certain people and not for others. It is an exhilarating moment to realize that the very rules that torment our existence are not typically made by the natural world but are created and upheld by the believer in our mind.
