Sometimes in my morning ritual of tea + quiet chair + morning pages journaling, questions that I don’t yet have answers to reveal themselves. Today I will allow the answers to find me by living for the questions and creating space to experience the answers. I will open myself up to clues and that which speaks to my soul. Clues are everywhere, we just need to be open enough to listen. #ambergram  (at Park Slope) Sometimes in my morning ritual of tea + quiet chair + morning pages journaling, questions that I don’t yet have answers to reveal themselves.

Too often we get hard on ourselves when we do or say something that we later regret. This energy is not lost. It spills into our lives, our work, our relationships, and the world. Rather than punish ourselves or feel guilty, try remembering this simple phrase: “How human of me!” It reminds me to treat myself with compassion and forgiveness, the root of all positive change. Want to take it a step further? Reflect on the need that wasn’t being met when you acted in a way you later regret. Was the need for respect? Trust? Connection? Love? Power? How, next time, can you try things differently to ensure you are committed to the well-being of yourself and others? #ambergram  (at Park Slope) Too often we get hard on ourselves when we do or say something that we later regret.

Occasionally when I am journaling, it feels like something comes over me — goosebumps, spine shivers and all — and I write something in all capital letters. I sometimes don’t even know what is being written until it’s finished and I read it. This is what emerged today. So let me ask you: What truth is alive within you, ready to be gifted to the world? #ambergram  (at Park Slope) Occasionally when I am journaling, it feels like something comes over me — goosebumps, spine shivers and all — and I write something in all capital letters.

Had a fascinating chat with @michaelmargs of Get Storied today on the power of story and how repositioning your message is often the obstacle standing in the way of your desired future. This question came from that conversation. So, are you?

What do you turn to when you seek to ease the edginess of the moment? Do you go inward, seeking guidance and introspection? Do you reach outward for support or go for some sort of fix to alleviate your edge? Our edges are all around us, illuminating fears to work through and areas of growth. Lately, I’ve been asking myself this question often, noticing when I pour myself a glass of wine because it’s snowing and I feel nervous about @farhadini driving home. Or when I take ten deep breaths before making an ask that feels slightly uncomfortable but oh so right. A lot of information lies in how we navigate our edges. #ambergram What do you turn to when you seek to ease the edginess of the moment? Do you go inward, seeking guidance and introspection?

30th December 2013

As I near 2014, I’m not making a long list of goals I’d like to check off (as I have in years past). Instead, I’m ruminating on the one word I aim to embody this year—the one feeling I desire most. That word, and that feeling, is Alive. To be alive is to ignite the parts within me that lay dormant. To feel my heart pounding, my blood pumping, and my soul blooming. To publish writing I fear pressing post, to have challenging conversations that propel my growth forward, to lead experiences that propel other’s growth forward too. To explore foreign sights and sounds that enliven my soul and create a rush of possibility. To love more deeply that I thought possible and to share that warmth with others. To be, do and act on that which makes me come alive. What’s your one word for 2014? #ambergram As I near 2014, I’m not making a long list of goals I’d like to check off (as I have in years past).

Seeking approval? Or love? Or attention? Start by approving, or loving, or giving attention to the “you” that is looking outside for the answers. It all begins from within. How can you approve of yourself today? How can you give yourself love so that you can fully give love to others? How can you give yourself the attention you need to thrive? #ambergram Seeking approval? Or love? Or attention?

You don’t know or you’re confused? When we’re “confused,” we add the unnecessary pressure of needing to know. Instead, allow yourself to step into not knowing, allowing the answers to naturally emerge. #ambergram You don’t know or you’re confused?

Hesitation tends to show up as either fear or an intuitive knowing. Fear can typically be mapped. We can dive into the “Why” behind that fear, gaining insights and knowledge about ourselves. When pushed past, we grow. Other times, we hesitate, unable to put our finger on the why. Maybe something just doesn’t feel right. That wisdom is our intuitive knowing. Pause and create space for the answers to reveal themselves. Your hesitation: is it fear or is it wisdom? #ambergram Hesitation tends to show up as either fear or an intuitive knowing.
