I used to have tons of anxiety that people would find out that I was a “fake.”

When I was 19 years old, I landed a job as a makeup artist for a very famous rock band. There was a constant fear in the back of my mind that someone was going to figure out that I wasn’t as cool, talented, or together as I appeared to be, and send me packing.

Imposter syndrome is actually a “thing,” and it affects a majority of the population. It’s the fear that you don’t deserve what you have, and you could be exposed at any moment. Studies show that it’s one of the most common fears out there, especially in women.

 I was definitely not alone in feeling like a big phony. Tina Fay, Em...

“How am I ever going to figure out my life purpose when I’m so scatterbrained?”


A client emailed me this question recently. She was very frustrated with herself because she never finished what she started. She started writing a book, then lost interest, then moved on to a painting she began a few weeks before. She got bored with that, so she decided she really needed to focus on learning a new healing modality. 


She is passionate about all of these things when she starts them, but she never enjoys doing them because she spends most of her time struggling with trying to figure out which thing is her “life purpose.” When she can’t decide which one she should sti...

A defining moment in my life happened when I was 9 and my best friend wrote me a “break up” letter. She told me that she didn’t want to be friends anymore because I always had the answers in class.


“Nobody likes a know-it-all,” the letter said. “It makes everyone else look bad.”

I was deeply hurt and confused by this. I found such pleasure in learning things. I would spend quite a bit of time studying my lessons because I truly enjoyed it. I also wanted to please my teacher by doing my best because she seemed as excited about the subjects as I was.


The thought never occurred to me that other people weren’t as enthusiastic as me. Why wouldn’t they want to show u...

“So this, I believe, is the central question upon which all creative living hinges: Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear


Whoever said “It’s better to have tried and failed, then failed to try” probably never had the soul crushing experience of pursuing their dream and failing miserably at it. Picking yourself up after something like that can be about as easy as jogging through quicksand.


Sometimes when we pursue our dreams, we place an enormous amount of pressure on ourselves for the outcome to be successful. We get so serious about making it work, that we...

Do you find yourself micromanaging every little thing in your life? It seems like we are living in a time of “specialization,” and we are limiting our beliefs because of it.


 If we get sick, we are told that we need to go to a specific doctor or receive a certain type of treatment, because that’s the only way we are going to heal. If we struggle with the end of a relationship, we receive all kinds off well-intentioned advice from others about the “right” way to move on. We can become rigid in our minds when we buy into this way of thinking.


We are multidimensional beings, so numerous paths are open to us. There are a limitless number of ways that good can show...

Getting fired or laid off can seem like the worst thing that could possibly happen. Feelings of shock, anger, and sheer-utter-terror can come in the aftermath of losing your livelihood. Not only has your source of income fallen by the wayside, but for many, so does your sense of identity.


You might not see it right now, but everything has a silver lining. Being jobless can be a good experience. In fact, being positive about it is going to keep you in the right frame of mind to become even more successful in your next adventure. Here are some reasons why:
