It feels interminable. Like you’ll never get out. Like it’s never…going…to…end. That’s the nature of hell. It’s not the pain that drives you insane, it’s the fear that the pain could go on and on.
Every “image” I had of my “ideal” life has been interrupted, derailed, splattered on the road to this sometimes way too fucking complicated, patience-of-Job, deeply deep and BEAUTIFUL life that I find myself in. CORRECTION: I didn’t “find” myself here. I made choices to be here — right where I am. One choice at a time.
My Dearest Powerfully Feminine, Probably In Need of Some Better Boundaries People…I think at least half of every “problem-solving” conversation I have with my girlfriends is about boundaries.

No, thank you.
What becomes possible when you say No?
I get so lit up when I do this work. A few days before a speaking gig, when I need to be clear in my mind and very anchored in my body, I’ll put a Qoya video on my iPad and dance it out in my living room. I don’t need to rehearse or worry about pleasing anyone. I just need to do what it takes to turn up my Prana. Power. Presence.

True “boundaries stories” from my friends and me (otherwise remarkably powerful, get-shit-done women who are firmly on the personal growth path, who struggle with saying, No, Thank You. We need to part ways. Pay me what you pay him. This just isn’t working for me. No fucking way. This is how I do it. I need to pass, thank you.
