The Key To Really Experiencing Change


Hello mighty companions!

Today I am headed to Monterey, CA for a mini vacation! There will be whale watching, mountain biking, tons of delicious food and salty ocean water. I’ll do my best to keep you updated on my Facebook page ;)

I feel lots of changes rumbling through my entire life (more on this in the coming weeks!) so this vacation is sure to help me create some much needed mental clarity.

In this week’s video, I talk about the way to really experience the change you say you want. Simply reading “spiritual” books and drinking green juice isn’t gonna do it.

What I’ve Been Up To This Summer (In Photos)


I don’t always take my camera with me on my adventures. Sometimes I just want to be fully present and have some space to work through my thoughts.

Expectations versus Goal Setting


“The people I admire most hadn’t really followed a particular path that was visible when they were on it.” - Anderson Cooper 

Welcome mighty companion! As you can see, this week there is no video. I felt like writing would be more effective for this week’s post… so I wrote ;) Let’s jump right in, shall we?

As I mentioned in last week’s video, the topic for today is all about how to tell the difference between when you’re setting goals and when you’re just setting more expectations for yourself.

I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t need more expectations. Less expectation, more exploration is my motto these days.

But how do you set goals/intentions for yourself without setting expectations? And what’s the freakin’ difference?!

I wanted answers. And I wanted to give you answers.
