“Is it going to make me big?” is the first question I always get from my female clients when the topic of weightlifting comes up. To be honest, it’s quite disappointing and I wish it was “is it healthy / good for me?” If lifting weights is a resource that improves your quality of life, how important are the aesthetics of it? Yes, I understand… it’s always nice to look good but I don’t think you see how much the benefits of lifting outweigh the chances of you getting big. See, lifting helps women burn fat more efficiently, increase their bone density, reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep, control cravings, balance hormones… I can go on and on. You want to know more details, read this article –> Asian Women Don’t Need to be Small!  Let’s talk about “getting big”… Maybe you see how a male friend of yours gained…

Death, break ups, falling outs, war, etc. are all ways that we lose people. In nature, everything comes and goes, even people. Whether it was or wasn’t their choice to no longer be in our lives, we have to learn to let them go. My process for accepting their departure and moving on is to change my perspective of the situation… What was their purpose in my life? What lessons did they teach me about myself? What lessons did they teach me to help serve others? By packaging my time with them as a gift that I have received, I can focus on being grateful for that gift, which takes my focus off of losing someone. Whether the reason behind losing that person was bitter or not, I find a way, no matter how big or small, to appreciate the time they had given me. For those who do stay in our lives,…

Spring is unfolding. Our days are beginning to fill with light, and we can step outside without worrying about coats, boots, salt, and snow. It’s the season of renewal, of emergence, of growth. In the spirit of that, I have been contemplating what’s important to me, and what I want to bring forward through the rest of the year. (Should I have done this around New Year’s? Maybe. But it was so cold, and I had a new dog, and…really, who cares?). The first thing you should know is that I believe very strongly in the goodness of people, and the potential for us to make the world a better place. I believe this despite a lot of evidence that people can do evil things, that everything has a cost, that our societies are deeply, deeply flawed, and that life is flat-out unfair. As someone who is not religious, this…

In a world where the possession of materials or even people is what proves our success, I’ve made the practice of “letting go” a main focus of my spirituality. If we could keep everything and everybody and every way of life, I’m sure many of us would. Life, nature and this Universe, however, runs in cycles. What comes, must go. From physical things to beliefs  to emotions and people, losing and letting go is quite a process. We’ve all grown so accustomed to having more than what we need. Having more has forever been looked at as being more but I think the people with the most know that isn’t true. If anything is so difficult for you to let go, tangible or not, then it has a power over you. I’m not saying we shouldn’t care about anything or disregard any emotions or ways of life but why do we let these…

“Truly powerful women don’t explain why they want respect. They simply don’t engage those who don’t give it to them.”- unknown The one main element that every woman has is the power of her own independence. Independence breeds strength, courage, and the ability to achieve any desire that we have, and to overcome the fear of anyone telling us that we can’t. Independence is a state of mind that is built inside each one us, but sometimes we women don’t always see that. We struggle to understand what exactly that means and if society will look negatively at us for it. The answer to that is a both yes and no. There will always be that negative surrounding in your life that you can’t always avoid, but you can always grow stronger from. That is when we women need to stand by each other and look past the negative, toxic…

Hilariously pathetic is when I’m lying down staring at the ceiling laughing and crying at the same time because I’m so fucking awesome but my life is a fucking joke. Hilariously pathetic is when I laugh at my conversation with God because he has a humbling sense of humor. Hilariously pathetic is when I know I have a big purpose but continuously fuck shit up. Hilariously pathetic is when I have such a good thing going for me so I purposely find a reason to ruin it. Hilariously pathetic is when I realize my “good idea” was really a very dumb one. Hilariously pathetic is when God tells me to do something and I fall on my face to learn the lesson. Hilariously pathetic is when I walk into a situation knowing that I shouldn’t as though I’m in an annoying scary movie. Hilariously pathetic is life. Hilariously pathetic is…

I’m a firm believer in “if you don’t ask, the answers always ‘no.” I used to live more true to this and quite openly would ask for things I wanted. You wouldn’t believe the amount of free food I’ve received! Some incredible cupcakes by Laguna Beach for one! Anyways, this week I’ve been reminded of how freeing this way of living is. You were born for so much more than the day to day. By all means, work your butt off for the things you have. Sometimes we ask for things that have no monetary value, and yet are far more precious. Ask for mom to stay on the phone with you one more minute and remember the way she used to run her fingers through your hair when you were a little girl. Ask that long lost girl friend to meet you out for coffee. Ask your partner to…

Focus on you. Keep your eyes on your path alone. Don’t let distractions sidetrack you. If they do, it’s ok… just come back to your path. It’s a meandering path, but that’s what makes it an adventure. There’s portions of it that are a steep uphill to climb, but there’s also the breezy downhills that make an effortless stroll. Either way, you’re moving forward. Don’t look at another’s path for their’s is unique to them and yours is sacred to you. Blessings, obstacles, experiences, people and lessons all show up differently because God and the Universe planned it that way. Don’t be jealous of anyone else’s journey for you are living through things they never have the opportunity to experience. You are touching the lives they may never get to touch. You are changing the world in ways they will never get to change it. Your light shines and your people…
