How To Hiatus + the YOU Economy: The June Roundup

I packed June with overcoming head barriers and wiping out stale energy. Team D spruced + juiced throughout a digital hiatus and now we’re refreshed.

Make changes without criticizing the past — your future will thank you for it.
Not only does dissing how you got to where you are dishonor your past and make for some negative juju, it weighs on your transformational process. How you regard your past influences how your future unfolds.

Good design, co-creating + the barriers in your head. In conversation with Tara Gentile.
How do you use the visual language of design to better spread your message to the right people? What is the greatest barrier to entrepreneurship now? Is it all in our heads? How do you determine who you co-create with? … and more.

Under my on-line hood: some philosophy + a bit of gear.
Seth Godin explained where his blog comes from, and his answers matched with a lot of the questions that I’m often asked. Here’s my very transparent version…

Sprucing + Juicing. An ode to The Hiatus, and why I’m taking one (and you should too.) When to Take A Hiatus and How to Make A Hiatus Extra Useful and Holy … Burn out is an obvious time to hiatus. But there’s a difference between taking time to recover, and making space in which to prepare for The New…

How to navigate uncertainty and give birth to stars (and what happened on my hiatus)
The beauty of stopping is that things loosen — sometimes to the point of becoming unhinged. And unhinged is very, very disconcerting. And essential. Coming unhinged is the passage way to innovation. Keep the faith and let yourself go crazy.

Recharge and reach for the stars,

the euphoria of admitting when it sucks

I hear this time and again, “If I just hang in longer… Maybe she’ll come up to speed. It might sell in the summer. If I dig deeper, I’ll learn to love Excel.” Fess up – it ain’t workin’. You’re smart to see it. You’re brilliant if you move on…

Infidelity, sisterhood, and self-respect either way. #Lemonade and Love.

My feelings about infidelity, monogamy and commitment — and how they’ve evolved over time. How I define Divine Fidelity a la David Deida’s 3 stages of relationships. And my deep respect for Beyonce’s art and every woman’s choice of devotion.

The most powerful possible Yes to women

…to the dark, the spacious, the sweet, the jaded, the women who live as certain as light rays,
who renovate broken boardrooms and policies with justified anger and overwhelming Love —
Love of inclusion, of ecology, of bone solid Truth — Love of Love.

Comparison is a killer. Cut it out.

Bless the people you feel envious of. The rich, skinny, in-love, confident, powerful people. Quicker than you can say “I wish I had that…,” say to yourself, or even better, to them, “Way to go…you look great…I admire you.” With envy out of the way, you’ll have more space for your own greatness to step forward.

You are worthy of your desires

To say no.

To say yes.

To have your deepest needs met.

To be seen.

To be loved for what is seen.

Feminism is consciousness. Lessons for my imaginary daughter & women — including Kim Kardashian.

All communication begins with intention. A loving word, or flipping someone the bird. A treatise on feminism, or an ageist tweet out to your peers.

Use your wings

You’re cosmic. You are winged with light. And that means you have the power to get where you want to go, to see what’s really going on in a situation, to make excellent decisions.

Recovering from self-help exhaustion? Join the club.

My friend Jess Ortner and I had a great conversation about the downer of always trying to be up. Perfect for her podcast called Adventures in Happiness. This is one of my favourite, truly useful conversations for being on the so-called “Path”.
