Change is TOUGH.
Change based on faith alone can be even tougher.

Leaping into the big unknown can be anything from quitting a job, ending a relationship, moving towns. It’s a time of transition… sometimes a time of limbo… and it can be daunting when you don’t know what’s coming next. But it’s necessary.

The big changes aren’t for everyone. How many times have you heard of people who stay in the same towns, have the same friends from elementary school, who will sometimes even go into their family’s vocation. Generation upon generation of sameness… and if that works for them – awesome! There is comfort in stability, predictability, reliability. There’s a lot less uncertainty when you’re dealing with known factors.

But I’ll let you in on a little secret… there’s a lot less adventure there too.

I tell my clients, “the body always knows” so you can use it as a barometer to measure opportunities. Think of how it would feel to do the same thing every day… doing it the same way… predictable, and safe, but without much in the way of variety… now tune into your body… does it feel expansive and open… or constrictive and closed? The things that are in alignment with us will always make us feel open – even when the possibility is scary.  Now, same exercise, but with the opposite question. Think of new beginnings, fresh starts, possibility, change… How does that feel? If it feels open, good, juicy, exciting, FANTASTIC – then you my darling are a butterfly who has just discovered her wings.

Sometimes the leaps are big, but less “unknown”… they can be BIG leaps into the “kinda sorta figured outs” and that’s good too. In fact, if you’re new to the land of big changes, taking slower, calculated risks and tip toeing yourself into big leaps is probably a gentler transition. These would be the leaps when you’ve done some research, you have big plans, you know what’s coming. As an example – you’re working a soul-sucking job and decide you want to leave. The big unknown would be walking out before you have another job, trusting that you’ll find something else and land on your feet. The big “kinda sorta figured out” would be finding a new job and then quitting. You may not know that you’ll love the new job, but you’ve looked into it, made a plan, and are open to finding out what happens with it. The best part of both of those scenarios – you get out of that crummy, soul-sucking job. HELL YEAH.

When you make the leaps (or plan to) – make sure you give yourself a pat on the back. Because change is scary, butterfly, and undertaking takes courage. Take the big pieces, and break them into smaller, more manageable ones. You’ll feel good with some easy wins under your belt, and your confidence will soar. You are brave. You are strong. You are capable. And while all of this may seem scary right now, you’ve got this.

With love,

The Sisterhood Wound

The Sisterhood Wound

For centuries, the sisterhood wound has been a silent yet powerful force in our lives; an invisible yet all-pervasive pain that has kept us rooted in some level of self-loathing, inauthentically showing up in our communities with other women, and ultimately from claiming our power.
