Today we are going to discuss saying ‘NO’ to more things so that you have the space and energy to say ‘YES’ to things you value and want. And of course this will include action you can take today. That’s right, you can get started changing your life right now.
In this episode you will learn:
Saying no to things can be really freaking hard! But when we say no to some things it gives us the space to say yes to other things.
When I first started my business, I said ‘YES’ to everything and anything. Most of it for free. When you have skills like mine (yoga, Ayurveda, stress management, coaching) you get asked to do a bunch of stuff for free. I want to serve. I...
I’m getting ready for the New Year, which of course means - goal setting! I love setting goals. I like dreaming about what might be in the future, and then figuring out how to get there.

The concept of ‘your best self,’ gets tossed around as if you should immediately know who she is and how to find her. How should I know what my best self is like? What does that even mean? Does she like cheese? I wonder if she has any chocolate?
But, when I really think about it, my best self is obvious. She is a magical version of me with all of my best traits. She is driven without bulldozering over everything in front of her. She is passionate without yelling (mostly). She is patient and kind. She is clear and focused. She is happy and laughs throughout the day. She feels great physically, emotionally, and mentally. She is confident and full of energy. She can do really hard things. She...
