this weekend, think about the ways you can fill yourself WHILE letting go of the drains. the deeper i go, the more i learn that we can do a lot of letting go just within ourselves.
.
also....if you’re looking to learn more about doing your own work, i’m still bribing women in to work with me this fall/winter.  spots won’t open up again until 2019!
.
to fullness, to letting go.
.
ps. if you don’t know the sugar jar reference, head over to @theheygirlpodcast and listen to my chat with Alex!

this is so hard but we can’t turn people or situations into what we want them to be.
.
relationships have ebbs and flows, whether platonic or romantic. many of us are ‘relationships by reward’, meaning that when people do a certain amount of good we associate that with being treated well, even if we’re not being respected or treated the way we want to be or deserve to be.  even if it’s consistent disappointment, when good things happen, it overrides all of the past and we ride that out until we’re back at a crossroads of being let down again.
.
i’ve found that this comes to be when we accept people’s disrespect + make excuses for them to keep the fantasy of what we want for ourselves, for our futures, + what we want to be believe alive.
.
going back to my last post, if we were honest with ourselves from love + having those truth and tough conversations, would we make the same decisions? do we often ‘hope’ ourselves into disappointment?
.
i believe connection requires truth. when we spark with someone, we are blinded by that immediate light which begins our dream world of who we imagine + hope they’ll be to us. but what if we stopped and gave ourselves long enough to check in? .

as i’ve been on the journey of awareness + mindfulness, much of my journey was consumed by how i interact with others, the conversations i should have with others, + what i should do to keep healthy boundaries while in relationship with others. .
the continuation of that work has been the relationship i have with myself + how i often show up with myself. as i walk through tough conversations with myself i’ve noticed that many of them often stem from a difficult external situation. .
it usually goes:::
.
frustration
appeasement
frustration
anger
disappointment
sadness
awareness
clarity
lesson learned .
although this method has served me + my level of awareness in the past, i’m shifting to a new model. where the things i often wait to say, TO MYSELF, when I’m in the thick of the situation, i acknowledge in myself from the beginning....perhaps eliminating the need for the external tough conversation in the first place.
.
this walk, these practices all begin with us. not our partners, our loved ones, or our jobs - but with us- from my perspective. if we can share with ourselves, be uncomfortable with ourselves, uncloak and bare our truth with ourselves....then we can begin our walks of honesty with those in our lives.

.
sometimes we create rituals believing that they bring us happiness, because at one time they did.
.
maybe travel used to make you happy. maybe running was what brought joy + peace. perhaps going to an event helped you feel connected.
.
but sometimes, we get caught up in our rituals and use them in place of doing what we ACTUALLY want to be doing or even in lieu of doing our personal work.
.
what do you always turn to for joy? is it helping you be a better you? does it keep you on the ‘hamster wheel’? is it time to switch it up?
