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.

Before I get into today’s post about “The Dark Side” I wanted to make sure you heard about and checked out my brand new company, so(ul) special!!! Head on over to www.soulspecial.club and sign up because I’ll be sending you exciting updates about what’s to come!
The Dark Side.
This at first glance, may seem like a Star Wars reference. If you haven’t seen Star Wars and don’t know what I’m talking about, then shame on you (kidding, I’ve never seen it myself).
We all have this side to ourselves. The part that we don’t normally want to look at. The part that we don’t tell people about. It’s not pretty I’ll give you that. It definitely should not be allowed to play and frolic on a regular basis.
It’s still you.
What if I told you that this also could be your greatest asset?
I know this does not sound very realistic, but really give it some thought. If and I mean IF you were truly able to accept this part of yourself along with all the wonderful, amazing, rainbow unicorn parts, there would be nothing left to judge.
You would no longer have those painful thoughts of you making those horrible decisions in college. Or that time you decided to steal something, lie, cheat, manipulate, or con somebody.
The best way for me to share what I learned about myself during my two month India was beautifully said by the late rapper Notorious B.I.G. in an interview that he did back in 1996:
The key to staying on top of things
Is treat everything like it’s your first project, nomsayin’
Like it’s your first day like back when you was an intern
Like, that’s how you try to treat things like
Just stay hungry
Hungry I was. Hungry I am. Hungry i will forever be. My appetite for life and for LIVING is insatiable and I’m done denying myself.
Maybe you have a project idea and need some inspiration. Writing a book? Painting? Singing? Starting a business? Or, like me, getting to know yourself again?
If you’re a seeker, this is especially for you.
Follow your hunger. It will eventually lead you to fullness. (click to tweet)
Thank you India.
Thank you B.I.G.
What are YOU hungry for? Let me know in the comments below. Can’t wait to hear 🙂
P.S. I have been working on something behind the scenes during my time in India. Be sure to sign up below to be the first to know when I share it. Hint: I’ve taken everything that I have learned plus a lot of wisdom from my ancestors to create my latest.
P.S. The interview Biggie did is from “My 1st Song” off of Jay-Z’s Black Album. Best ever. Listen here
So we’re finally moved into our new place in Austin. I gotta say, it’s been a whirlwind these past 72 hours.
Drove 14 hours, unpacked 30 something boxes, and finally sitting down to write.
And to be quite honest, I’ve got nothing, kids.
I’m in a new city. Trying to find my way around. Thrilled that I’m here but also dealing with some “stuff” that comes to the surface any time I’m faced with the unknown.
What I’m starting to learn more and more, is that it’s all good.
And that waiting for the other shoe to drop is like saying you want to be happy, but only if it doesn’t run out (more on that in another post).
As always, the Universe delivers. I love getting great content and information to my peeps (that’s you). And I’m also okay with the fact that I am not always THE ONE to deliver great info.
Translation: I love being the vehicle of goodness.
Enter, Noah Kagan.
I met Noah in the Dominican Republic back in November for a mastermind event called Zentrepreneur, followed by 5 days of Awesomeness Fest, hosted by Mindvalley. Look it up. It’s a ton of fun. And clearly, awesome.
Before we get into today’s Keepin’ It Real, I wanted to give you a heads up:
Now onto today’s KIR.
You may not know this about me but….
I’m not ok with just OK.
And while this way of being has typically served me in my business and the value that I provide for my clients, it hasn’t always served me in other areas.
I can speak from personal experience when I say that my “OK is not OK” attitude had an effect on my personal relationships.
Over the past few years, I’ve really taken the time to question whether OK…is enough.
I have to be honest, I still resist it. I still resist things being OK because quite frankly, I am a striver. But as each day goes by and I become more and grounded in my truth, I can tell you this:
What I choose to be OK with is up to me to define.
In this week’s Keepin’ It Real video, I get an email from Helene, who is in a marriage that is according to her, “Just OK.”
Her story is not an uncommon one so I would love for all of us to give her some support and share your tips in the comments below.
