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b) I’d rather not let an outdated design stop me from writing.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.

A couple weeks ago, I hit the wall. Hard.
This Workaholic’s Intervention
Let’s take a short trip down memory lane. *cue rewind sound effect*
“I get that you like to serve others–you’re a ‘server,’ like me. But sometimes, serving others looks like crawling into a cave to rest.”
These wise words were spoken to me right after I hit the (figurative) wall.
I was about to begin assisting Day 2 of a 3-day CTI workshop. Despite the fact that I was feeling physically exhausted, feverishly ill and extremely emotional, I had sucked it up and shown up at the workshop, determined not to let anyone down.
