I Am Willing

I am willing to see. I am willing to see things differently. I am willing to align with my Highest Self. I am willing to evolve. I am willing to expand, to encompass new dimensions, to integrate new eternal truths. I am willing to go all in on me. I am willing to believe and […]

Not my family’s keeper

It is my belief that family, those who we grew up with or were raised by, are not here for us to help them. It is my belief that they are here for us to help ourselves. I’ve tried so many times, too many to count, to reconcile with my parents. I’ve tried too many […]

Keep that stale loaf away from me

As I waited at the edge of Santa Monica Blvd, for the little white figure across the street to tell me I could cross, a thought flitted across my mind, a thought about my writing, or lack thereof recently. I don’t have anything to say. I don’t have anything interesting to share. And even as […]

Why am I here? – 62/100

A question that’s been coming up recently is – How do I serve? Or, What is my gift and contribution to the world? Or, What is my capacity … ? There are so many ways to pose the question but it all boils down to one thing – Who am I? Okay, maybe to two things – […]

You are invited – 53/100

This past weekend, a friend, Lauren, asked me a question that stopped me dead in my tracks. Before I share what my friend asked, I’d like to give some context around the situation. The question stemmed from an earlier conversation(s) in which I labelled what I was sharing as “woo-woo” and treated myself like I […]

“When silence told me to shut up” – 43/100

I’m going to post something I wrote for a weekly email because it very clearly describes what I’ve been going through. Not only because I want to capitalize on my writing (share one time’s work more than once), but to share what one of my weekly emails looks like. If you like, there’s a subscribe […]

28 quotes that dominate my 28-year-old self today – 31/100

Today’s the day. As much as I downplay this day, planning to treat it like a normal day with work, my morning routine, etc., I also can’t help feeling a little more energized, a little more excited for today. Hahah. Nothing on my schedule looks like a celebration, but still. And then I think about […]

Excuses suck because I know they’re bullshit – 25/100

As my birthday approached this year, I felt a few different things. I was a little anxious, a little restless about my life, where I am, and, more often, where I’m not. But the closer it gets, the less I feel anxious and restless. Interesting. As it gets closer, the more I am clear on […]

I like Mondays – 9/100

It’s Sunday. Tomorrow is Monday. Very good, Grace. Thank you. Hahaha. Every day is busy. So very busy. I wake up before the sun to train, then head to a cafe. I want to say I work at the cafe, but not all my cafe activities bring in income so I don’t want to say […]

Perfect-perfect – 8/100

Sometimes I don’t know what the hell I’m doing. I struggle to find the right words. I struggle to organize my thoughts. I struggle to decide the next course of action. I struggle with my conscience. I struggle with judging others. I struggle with being softer, kinder. I struggle trying to be more feminine. I […]

Habits, Freedom, and Challenge – 1/100

Before I left my job, I worked at building good habits. Like spending time every morning to read and write. And taking my vitamins. Meditating. Being active. After I left, I started some other habits like writing affirmations, things I’m grateful for, what I’m looking forward to, etc. But there comes a moment when my […]

What’s been up… and some rambling

This is an update on the coaching invitation I put out on Facebook on 3/17, about 3 weeks ago. I put together that invitation in one go, not thinking too hard about what could or might not happen. Still, hitting Post caused a spike in my heart rate. It didn’t garner a billion likes, reactions, and comments. […]

What I don’t know

Today, I did the unthinkable. I wasted time. In actuality, it wasn’t a waste of time. I stayed in bed about 15 minutes longer. Went to the gym later than I’d planned. Put in my bike workout. Went home, showered, headed out to pick up a new bike for the tri. Helped someone run an […]

True and False

Things I grew up believing that may not be true. Actually, they aren’t, at least not in their entirety. Everyone needs to go to college.* You need to go to a reputable university to be worth something. College will teach you about life and how to succeed. You’re going to regret the scars from playing […]

The voice and the water

Now that this week is over, I have so many ideas, so many things I want to write and share about. People have asked if I’m going to keep updating the blog with how things are going and I said Yes I would. So the entire week has passed and I’ve written one post, about […]

On Wealth and Money

It’s been a flurry of Facebook and WordPress activity the past couple days. My blog feels so special with all this attention. I take it with a grain of salt. I don’t expect it to last because I think that specific post, that specific action I took spoke to the heart and soul of so many people. […]

I quit my job for two things

I quit my job last week. Well technically, I quit months ago when I decided I couldn’t stay the 3-5 years I had originally intended. I quit when I realized I was so unhappy I felt I would rather not have income than feel unfulfilled and anxious. I quit when I realized time is priceless […]

Step by step, ya big baby

This marathon weekend is a big deal to me. I would never have bought tickets to the damn thing and flown all the way to Orlando to do what I can do perfectly fine over in Cali. But a good friend of mine insisted and here we are. I struggled at first, this is crazy […]

One last thought

As I head out to New Year’s Eve ratchetivities — which really just means more makeup than usual and a pre-paid entrance fee to a venue — I’m enlivened by the fact that I’m alive, I have good people around me, and I have something to look forward to. I don’t mean something to look forward to at the […]

Kudos, Grace

The amount of resources out there is overwhelming. Exciting, but overwhelming. So many ways to learn and grow and expand my mind. Where does it stop? Where do my curiosity and hunger become satiated? So much so that I need to prioritize haha. I’ve signed up for courses, downloaded ebooks, subscribed to blogs, newsletters… There’s […]

Single focuser

I am a horrible multi-tasker. Except I didn’t know this until this year, possibly and probably two months ago. Or I probably subconsciously knew it in the way I find it so hard to work on a test sheet for work, answer an email to my manager, draft another to a client to get the […]

Forward and upward

I used to sit on my ass and ask God, the universe, whoever would listen to show me the way. I thought I was entitled to some sort of direction and guidance if I had faith, if I just believed some sort of unique destiny, a plan bigger than me. I got so good at […]

My superlative

My greatest accomplishment is to mean what I say and say what I mean. My greatestest accomplishment is to then do what I say and mean. This, to me, is the epitome of freedom, because let me tell you – life sucks when you can’t figure out what you mean, what you want, who you […]
