Embracing the Space in Between

A few days ago, I wrote about leaping toward our dreams – putting both feet in – not allowing ourselves to have a safety net. Tony Robbins calls this going to an island and burning the frickin’ boats to make sure we are all in! Well, as I sit here typing this post from an office completely void of any furniture (except for the card table that I am sitting at now, which shakes with each letter that I type) – I would have to say this: I have officially burned my boats.

It’s Okay to Feel Afraid

Oftentimes, when we take a leap and step into the life that we feel we are meant to live, we feel afraid and unsure and unsettled.

We wonder if we have made the right choice. We look around us, and it seems that everyone else is confident and entirely sure of themselves and their choices. And this causes us to feel alone and isolated in our frightened state of mind. We worry that something must be wrong with us – why can’t we just take the leap, be okay with it, and get on with our


Ready for a Life Divorce?

I am getting a divorce. It’s true.

However, I’m not divorcing my husband. I adore that man, and we will definitely spend all of eternity together loving each other.

This divorce is so much bigger than that. I am divorcing my life.

I have felt an unsettling deep inside of me for quite awhile now. I have felt that the life that I live and the life that I want to live are not one in the same. And so, I’ve been taking little steps for the past year to bring my actual life and my dream


Showing Up, Opening Up, and Growing Up

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time to write a post about gratitude!

Today is a very special day for me: it’s my one-year blogiversary!

When I created Soul Speak, I didn’t have a clear vision in mind. I only knew that there was a voice deep within me that wanted to speak. I trusted that the clarity would come. I had faith that each day when


Shared Wisdom – Living Fearlessly

Shared Wisdom Guest Post
Featuring Anna Conlan from Psychic But Sane

Life expands or contracts in proportion to one’s courage. – Anais Nin.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could put aside all our fears and pursue our dreams fearlessly? Imagine how much more you could achieve and experience if you had no fear at all to go after whatever you wanted.

If fear/love is a spectrum, it’s certainly more helpful to be more towards the love end of the spectrum than the


A Present Progressive Kind of Life

Like many of you, I have made a lot of friends online. And I have formed bonds and relationships that I know will last forever. We are able to immediately connect on a deep level – on a soul level. And I am so grateful for that.

I also have made many in-person friends: people that I have met face-to-face. Some that I have known for years and others that I have recently met at conferences and established a tight friendship with.

What’s interesting to me is that


Working Out the Kinks

I wear a silver chain necklace at all times. I sleep with it on. I shower with it on. It’s always on. It’s a very meaningful necklace – it’s a reminder for me to come back to the present. When I see it in the mirror, when I feel it against my skin, it’s my wake up call to center myself and breathe.

Blogging with Heart Award ♥

Happy February!

This is my favorite month – it’s where we get to celebrate being sappy! ♥

I live my life with my heart on my sleeve. I am wide open, completely raw, and blissfully real. I frequently have tears streaming down my face – sometimes because I’m so filled with joy that I almost can’t stand it, and sometimes because I’m so filled with sorrow that it’s almost too much to bear. Highly sensitive. Highly emotional. Highly intuitive. Highly aware
