It was a breath of fresh air. I began to realize that the freedom I felt/experienced on the coaching call was something I was created to enjoy and able to have in my life on a daily basis.

I’m here in beautiful Santa Monica, CA for the next few days. I’ll be shooting videos with an awesome company called MindValley, and then will be on Nancy Grace on Monday (omg) talking about mental health.
Yesterday when I landed at LAX airport after a three hour flight, I took a shuttle to the AVIS rental car location where I needed to pick up my car for the week.
The line was LONG. Like out the door long..
And if you’re anything like me, you get exhausted from traveling.
I was contemplating going with another company but I figured since this was a busy time of day that there would be lines everywhere. I saw a man wearing an AVIS shirt standing outside. His job, I imagine was to pull the cars around for customers. I went up to him and started asking him how long the line would be, and if there was another option for me—perhaps paying a little extra to get on the “AVIS Preferred” line where I could avoid the wait.
Normally, I don’t mind lines at all. It gives me a good opportunity to check emails, people watch, and sometimes just BE and watch what’s going on around me and within me. But that day, I was hungry (more like HANGRY= hungry + angry) and extremely tired, as I am sure everyone else on the line was too.
Yesterday I hosted three free calls to share four tips to reinventing your life. If you couldn’t make the call, no worries.
Here are the four steps to reinventing your life:
1. Be transparent and honest with yourself and AT LEAST one other person.
This first step is admitting that you are stuck. There’s nothing to be ashamed of. But as I have said over and over again, “keepin’ it real” with yourself is the ONLY way that any change can occur. Otherwise you’re just buying your own bullshit. That’s a road going nowhere. Start taking stock of the areas of your life that you just feel BLAH. Admit it to yourself. Honesty with yourself IS the best policy. (click to tweet)
Once you do that, share it with someone who you know has your back. More importantly, share it with someone who you trust, and know won’t sugarcoat things. Listen, we all have people in our lives that just tell us what we want to hear. That’s not helpful. At all. Talk to someone who you know understands you AND is willing to tell you the truth, even if it’s hard to swallow.
You wanna know what I’m sick and tired of?
Talking about the past.
I’m sick and tired of it because for so long that was ME. I spent most of my time asking “Why did this happen?” or “Why me?”
It literally made me sick. And tired.
So you see, this is why I keep it real. I keep it real because the way that I was able to move past my past was to be honest with myself and understand that there was absolutely nothing I could do about my past- that the only power that I had was to be focused on the NOW and move forward.
If you have ever found yourself living in the past, then this week’s Keepin’ It Real is for you.
Nothing to be ashamed of. Like I said, it took me a very long time to move past my past and now, I help people do just that!
It’s awesome what we can create when we truly let go of the stuff that holds us back.

This past week I did something that was very out of my comfort zone.
I bought a two piece bathing suit.
This is a huge deal for me. Media has done a great job in portraying what an “ideal” body looks like. And if I were comparing my body to what media says– HELL NO would I be buying myself a two piece bathing suite.
But as I’ve consistently said to you over the years in all my emails- the first step to feeling confident and going after the thing you are most afraid of–
Take the FIRST STEP.
Here’s a picture of the bathing suits that I bought.
Do I have the “perfect” body.
But it’s perfect to me.
The bathing suit has much less to do with the actual apparel and much more to do with me not wanting to tan like an Oreo cookie (brown on the top and bottom and white on my stomach).
