one woman's quest to live the life she's imagined all while daring you to do the same

Your Fear is the Most Boring Thing About You

2013 Shortly after I published I Think I’ll Make It. A thank you gift to Liz Gilbert for all her personal permissions of lines borrowed from Eat, Pray, Love.

“Regular, made in China, Walmart fear;)”

This clip is in honor of the fact that I’m missing my homegirl Oprah this weekend for The Life You Want Weekend in Newark, NJ.

Other trailblazers in town this weekend include Iyanla Vanzant, Rob Bell, Elizabeth Gilbert, and Mark Nepo.

I’m only a little bitter.

I love this old TED from Elizabeth Gilbert, btw. If you haven’t seen it in a while, it’s a great charge for the creativity muscle;)


Much Love,

      I’m so sorry i missed this comment. I usually respond as soon as I get them, but somehow yours sat in a comment folder I didn’t see. Anyway, thank you for your thoughts. I love Elizabeth Gilbert’s insight on fear. She’s great. I hope you got your forgiveness you were seeking. Happy New Year! To an awesome 2015!
