“It’s been a long time.
We shouldn’t have left you
without a dope beat to step to.”
— Timbaland, “Try Again” with Aaliyah
I’m thrilled to share that I’m relaunching this blog with a renewed purpose, mission, and all-new content.
While this blog has been an aspiration and a yearning of mine for at least 5 years, I was never quite able to find my own voice with it. Something in me was holding back, was confused about exactly what to write, and couldn’t pick the right words. It was frustrating, because I knew there was something I really, really wanted to share with you, to express.
I’m coming back to this blog after a long pause. During that time, I kept intending to redesign and repurpose it, until I realized:
a) that would take too long, and
b) I’d rather not let an outdated design stop me from writing.
Going forward, I plan to write less from the standpoint of a coach, and more about my own personal journey towards unconditional love. I hope that openly sharing my authentic journey and my learnings along the way will help others as much as it will help me. xo
I didn’t sleep well last night.
Awaking in the wee hours of the morning, I became caught in a storm of worries about my business, CrossFit Kindred. Little nagging what-ifs and gotta-dos, insignificant specks filling up my mind until I was drowning in quicksand.
Hello, lovelies! Wow–hard to believe I’ve been absent from my blog for an entire month! So much has been happening with my coaching, CrossFit, and life–and I can’t wait to share all my learnings with you.
First, a few updates:
A couple months ago, some friends and acquaintances of mine in the CrossFit community launched Tabata Times, a new online media resource for people into CrossFit and fitness in general. Its readership is already growing, and I’ve had the privilege of writing 2 articles for them, the second of which was published just last week.
What does coordination have to do with improving relationships?
Unrelated as they may sound, there is a magic relationship between the two. In general, I find that wellness (consciously serving the wellbeing of your whole self–physical, emotional, mental, spiritual) contains many invaluable lessons for leadership (consciously serving the wellbeing of a greater whole beyond yourself–people, relationships, your environment, or anything in between!). The following is just one example.
The ego gets a bad rap these days.
It’s common to hear complaints about how this or that person has a “huge ego.” Even Eckhart Tolle (whose writings I have been totally inspired by) talks a lot about how to free yourself from your ego.
But what is the ego, anyway–and is it really all that bad? Well, there are actually 2 very different ways it can show up: as the negative ego or the positive ego.
