My Manifesto

  1. Take your sweet time and be easy with yourself.

  2. There is no place you “should” be.

  3. The experience you’re in is exactly where you’re meant to be. If it wasn’t, it wouldn’t be happening.

  4. When strong urges come, pause and ask yourself if the desire is driven from fear or love.

  5. Write.

  6. Take at least five minutes in the morning to notice how you feel, listen to your breath and express what you’re grateful for. It’s a simple action with such great reward. The rhythm of the day is different when we begin with this awareness.

  7. Set a timer for a minute throughout the day. In that minute close your eyes and take five long, slow, steady breaths.

  8. Ask yourself often, how do I want to feel today? In this hour? In this moment? Our experience is always a reflection of our inner world, and every thought has an effect on some level.

  9. Choose to lean on the power of love because only love is real. 
  10. Find mentors. Volunteer. Enroll in courses, trainings or workshops, retreats you’ve been considering. You’ll connect with people who think and see life the way you do and you’ll get to fill up on that good juju.
  11. Remember you are never alone.
