1. All we want is to be seen. When you see someone else, you give them room to blossom. They feel received. And that’s a big deal.
2. Keep going closer to what feels like truth, what makes you feel like yourself from the toes up in this instant, and makes you say, “Oh, there I am.”
3. We’re enough. You don’t have to do anything. You don’t have to earn anything. Know that it’s enough to say, “I’m here and this is what I have to offer.”
4. Walk yourself home to yourself.
5. Connection is the name of the game. That’s where the gold’s at. But you have to connect with yourself first.
6. Travel is optimism in action. People are much kinder than we’re told they are. The world is a very welcoming place.
7. That which we resist is what persists. Recognize fear for what it is and ask yourself, “Will I allow fear to dominate this decision or will I walk through that fear?”
8. You don’t know what you’ll want or what your things will transpire. That’s why you just suit up and show up.
