At War With Yourself?

A few days ago the ugliest, meanest, cruelest pieces of me descended.

I was too weak to stop them.

It hurt.

They hurt me.

I cried in the shower and hyperventilated and heaved....

But the next morning I leaned into tools I use to remember and embody supportive, kind, loving pieces of myself.

We all have these pieces—the ones that criticize and promote fear and ones that are compassionate and forgiving.

Oftentimes we are at war with ourselves thinking we have to lead with this voice or from that piece.


You can hear and acknowledge and allow more than one conflicting voice or thing at a time...

And then you can CHOOSE.

Choose to lead with love.

Choose to lead with compassion.

Choose to lead with acceptance.

Choose to lead with curiosity.

Choose to lead with openness.

And thrive.

Sending you so much love,
