I have always been one to take risks, follow my heart, pursue my dreams, and not wait for love or life to find me. So, nine months ago, after getting out of a dead-end relationship, I left California for new beginnings in Portland, Oregon, a place I knew almost nothing about, and am excited to say I have completely fallen for this gem of a city that I now call home. Rocco, my super rad chiweenie, is adjusting like a champ and we both agree the future looks bright!
And, as hard as it’s been to let go of a dream, I will never stop living wholeheartedly. Every heart-wrenching disappointment is a messy opportunity to fall even more in love with myself, my friends, my passions, and my life.
So, that’s what I’ve been doing – sometimes joyfully, sometimes not, but always passionately and with my whole heart. I can’t even begin to express how thankful I am for my nearest and dearest – my extraordinary friends and my amazing coach who have all been there for me, as always, like angels walking the earth.
And, for all of the amazing humans that I coach – past and present (and future!) – who endlessly move and inspire me with their fierce courage and indomitable commitment to living their best life. You all ROCK, and I am so honored to be a part of your wholehearted journey.
And, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t invite all of you to ask yourself, how are you living wholeheartedly today? Whether there is heartbreak, a loss of someone you love, a high-pressure job, no job, compromised health, challenging kids or family members, a too-full plate, a fledgling business, a betrayal by someone you loved and trusted, or any of the other challenges that come with being alive – how are you showing up for yourself and your life?
Hint: If it’s with a compassionate and courageous heart, a curious and open mind, and a willingness to lovingly and authentically connect with yourself and others, then, I believe, you’re on the right track!
Thanks to everyone who, just for today, is showing up wholeheartedly – we’re in this together!
Have fun playing with this new approach and email me what you notice!
With Big Love,
