There’s so much going on in the world but that’s not new. We’ve been programmed to believe many things that limit our potential, stop us from wanting or believing we can have more. I call enough!
We have more resources at our finger-tips than ever before to live our healthiest, greatest life so why are we so stuck as a society? Why are so many people sick, depressed and suffering vs. healthy, happy and fulfilled?
This episode, we take a hard look at the victim mindset programming, self-medicating and avoiding real change because its too hard.
If you are not happy, you have to ask yourself why but then be brave enough to face the truth and change it.
You are here to be a bad-ass sensitive and live your best life. I believe that, I am here to help you get to a place where you believe it too.

If you are a woman who wants to live and feel bad-ass, its important to surround yourself with women who get you, lift you and make you better. Friends who keep you on the rise, who keep you going because lets be real, life doesnt feel all glitter all the time.
Which is exactly why I invited The Samantha Parker to join me on this soul-packed episode. She has been that powerhouse in my life, and I wanted to share her infectious lets make magic happen energy with you.
Samantha has never backed down from a big idea. In fact, shes queen of turning her passions into reality, but its so much bigger than that.
Shes created her own successful businesses in what seems like overnight, magic like founding Badassery Magazine and even interviewed Gary V, a dream of hers that again, just seemed to magically happen as an outsider looking in.
But truly what makes her bad-ass and all glitter, is her relentless drive to be the greatest version of herself, even if it requires her to reinvent herself. She just answers yes when her soul calls. Thats what makes her truly inspiring to be around because it rubs off on you!
Samantha makes being unstoppable look easy, even when its not, and the coolest thing, she invites all the women around her to join in her fun, glitter, and success. I love her and I know you will too!
Its not proper to drop the F-word and yet, when it comes to saying yes to your big dreams, giving it your all and going for it, the f-word is all too often the default. Of course were talking about failure.
This week a deeper dive into your fear of failure, why its there when clearly it wont help you move forward on your soulful path and how to get to an energetic place of done deal instead!
No more fear of failure for you badass, its time to go for your dreams!
Have you been giving away too much energy in exchange for little to nothing?
Saying yes any which way the wind blows even when you want to say no?
Do you secretly wish you hit the pause button for all things life right about now?
If you’re over there shaking your head, I get it. You have a big heart, you love to help others. But what happens when you feel empty, when you’ve given all you can give and there’s nothing left for YOU?
I’ll go ahead and say it, you feel like crap. Your temperament is set to growly and all you can think is “go away” anytime anyone starts to approach you. Am I close?
When your nature is to help others, you naturally take on things that on the surface appear as “the right thing to do” or they may even make you feel helpful, productive, and like you’re making a difference.
But is it the difference you want to be making?
Are you investing your time and energy into all the things that absolutely light you up inside? Or just tending to all the things you said yes to that feel like more work? All the things your ego or someone else’s guilt-trip forced upon you?
There are reasons that sensitive women end up overloaded, overwhelmed and over-extended energetically -and let me tell you it’s NOT because they cannot handle or juggle all the spinning plates.
I have to laugh at this because the women I work with, tell me they don’t want to get “spread too thin” or they’re afraid they’ll “take on too much” when they are handling more than any normal person can handle in a week!
I know they can handle a lot, but is what they are tending to what’s right for them? Typically not. They’re committed to many of the wrong things,things they assumed responsibility for that they did not need to.
I had a client who felt overwhelmed and frustrated about some of the things on her “to-do” plate. After talking through how those things landed there, she realized she had been volunteering herself to take them on for other people! She was in total surprise at that realization.
As we worked through why, she discovered old patterns of guilt and assuming responsibility to try and please others. Her conditioned mind activated pressure subconsciously to take on more and more – even if it didn’t feel right for her. She just defaulted to her ego and said yes.
Have you ever done that?
We worked on a strategy where she no longer volunteered herself unless it was something she felt in alignment with – without the guilt weighing in making her blurt our the words “I’ll just take care of it”!
She now makes her decisions from an intuitive yes or intuitive no.
There are so many different reasons (all personal) as to why sensitive women, why you might give and give only to end up feeling empty.
When there’s no return of energy that lights you up, just a one-sided way of moving through life, all pushing and forcing it’s very wearing on your energy.
You might fall into a negative pattern of people pleasing to keep the peace, taking on loads of projects in an effort to prove yourr worth, talk yourself into things only to realize you have a life full of everything you don’t like, feeling obligated from guilt trips of family members – the list goes on.
I’m sure you’d agree when you feel tired, exhausted, overwhelmed you’re not as inspired, not ready to take on those big dreams or leap out of your comfort zone am I right?
You may even feel lost and confused, stuck, depressed or question if you have what it takes to change things. I promise you do! You may need a bit of support to call out the old pattern and how to change it, but you have the power to change what you don’t like that is not serving you if you decide to.
So what’s the solution?
You get really selective about what you say yes to. How do you do that? You empower yourself to get really clear about who you are and what you likeand do wantby connecting with your intuition.
And as important, you get really clear about what is not working for you, what you don’t want. What makes you feel your intuitive “no”. With that, you create a strategy to eliminate those things.
This frees up your time, energy and space to put toward whatever you really do want! That way, whatever you give your time, energy and focus to gives you a return of energy that fills you back up!
Your action step: Make a list of the things on your plate that are NOT working for you.
What are you giving your time, energy and effort to that is not filling you back up? Where are you giving too much with no return for you? (or who are you giving to?)
