Most of us have heard the quote most often attributed to Steve Jobs that says: “the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do” (full quote in this awesome video from Apple). But today it’s time to look deeper. How many of us are really avoiding stepping fully into our genius, following our hearts, and living our dreams because… well.. it might be/seem/look/feel/etc. kind of CRAZY to everyone around us? Having done this off and on for years, I’ve now deepened my commitment to forever raise the white flag of peace: I will not fight my heart anymore.
It’s never what we’re doing that makes a meaningful life; it’s how/why we do it that matters. All of us go through the motions of the same basic things in our lives: we eat, sleep, work, receive new life and experience loss/death. But the major difference in how we experience these things is what’s going on within. Our inner myth/story guides whether or not we experience our lives positively or negatively. Are we a victim of our life’s circumstance or are we the hero or our life story?
Within all of us is an itch that can’t seem to be itched, a hunger that can’t seem to be satisfied. With the intense itch and insatiable hunger subconsciously driving us forward, it can be only natural to grasp at things we think will satisfy, only to be disappointed (and sometimes left more empty than before). Where does this come from? Our souls. Soul hunger can be easy to misidentify and misunderstand. However, as we courageously dare to get more clear on the “why?” behind what we are pursuing, it opens a candid, life-transforming conversation with our souls. We can then know more clearly what will finally ease the itch and resolve the hunger.
So many of us are desiring to make shifts in our lives this year, which can make the beginning of the year intimidating, as well as exhausting. You’re fully involved in the dance between where you have been and where you want to be. Your desires are big + inspiring, but it can feel like a chasm is dividing you from now to there. In this special episode of the Joyful Living Podcast we dive deep into the importance of living this year more in your essence. Listen as we harness the power of the Cinderella story, including it’s relevant archetypes, and other powerful metaphors that speak to and inspire the soul.
Thinking about (or dreading) New Year’s Resolutions? Think again. Rather than making lists of what to do or not do in this new year, you can do something MUCH more powerful!

Whenever I start to feel burnt out, exhausted or overwhelmed by life, I now look to one major aspect of my life: speed. I start to ask questions like: “why I’m doing all I’m doing? And why does it all need to be done right now?” We live in a culture of speed, ever-racing towards […]
