Just a Reminder: Doubt is a Liar! Dec 01, 2021

“Doubt is the best salesman that there’s ever been. He gets up every day and knocks on your door trying to sell you on the lie that you aren’t good enough.”
-Dr. Billy Alsbrooks
 
Doubt stops you in your tracks.
 
Doubt makes you second-guess yourself.
 
Doubt kills dreams.
 
Doubt shows up in so many ways. Do you recognize it when it knocks at your door? Do you know how to answer?
 
You are good enough. But only you can help yourself fully believe it. It has taken me a long time to realize that I sit in the control booth.
 
I can also be the one who creates the doubt based on past experiences. But I am still in control. I can answer the doubt, hear it out, and then send it on its way.
 
I get to choose. I AM good enough. And I am here to do good work.
 
What about you?

I left it all on the stage! | TEDx Manitou Springs 2021 Sep 27, 2021

The TEDx event this past Saturday was phenomenal in so many ways!

The official videos of my talk and all the other amazing talks will be out in a few weeks. I'll update when they are available! In the meantime, I'm just...breathing in the joy!

 Speaking my truth was the most amazing experience. And people were touched, receptive and moved. My heart is so full right now.

There was such camaraderie among the entire team of organizers, speakers, volunteers, and audience.  It was truly a community event!  I had the new experience of selling my coloring books and autographing them!  It was such a special day for everyone involved.  So honored to have been a part of this exceptional event. 

 

Congratulations TEDx Manitou Springs for pulling off a wonderful day for all!

Grateful for all the phone photos shared with me. Official professional photos are coming soon!

TEDx Manitou Springs is Almost Here: A Preview Sep 17, 2021

Wow, it's hard to believe we are just one week away from TEDx Manitou Springs, Colorado!

It has been the longest, shortest couple of months since this whole process began, and I am just so ready to get on that stage and share my message of life!

Will you be there? 

 

A preview --

Think about what you’re exposed to, what’s crammed into your head every day. You’re surrounded by negativity. Drama, trauma, angst…we ingest it constantly. It’s an addiction feeding our fear, our anxiety, our self-doubt, and our negative self-talk.  

Negativity Clouds Truth

There is a huge difference between negative and negativity. We need negative experiences to learn and grow. But, negativity is a constant, destructive state of mind. 

Author Bree Maloney shared in her article, The Damaging Effects of Negativity, that if we let negativity rule, we are more likely to get sick. Upset stomach, headache, sleep problems, anxiety, depression, fatigue, chest pain, you name it.  

The point is, all this negativity is really bad for our health. There’s a solution. 

Stop it! 

Easy to say. But how do you do it?

Reevaluate, reconnect, and restructure.
