Is your Inner Motivational Speaker, like, nice to you? Because interior tone matters so very much.

We all have a voice in our heads telling us what to do.

Pick a motivational ‘ism, (it doesn’t really matter which one):

Feel the fear and do it anyway. Decide to rise. Do what ordinary people fear. No pain, no gain. Find a way, not an excuse. Dream bigger.

Really, nothing wrong with any of those dictums. Philosophically, you could drill into each one and find some universal truth. Or, you could write these off as BS motivational hype. It’s a personal choice. Here’s the point:

Like all communication, it’s THE TONE that makes the difference. And the tone that you take with yourself is the most important.

Is your inner motivational voice shouting or whispering? Is it cheering you on, or talking down to you? Is it acting like it’s all supportive and shit when really, it’s just trying to scare you into getting something done so the world will get off your back? (Read: Your chronically disappointed mother; your successful sister [who’s really actually quite lovely, it’s just that you’re a bit envious]; your subtly judgmental so-called BFF…)

If you’ve got a cheerleader in your psyche who’s the best friend you ever had, then you can stop reading here. Congratulations!

If your Inner Motivational Speaker tends to shout at you no matter what, then consider this:

Sometimes you have to stand up to that inner voice (and to all disconnected motivational speakers out there acting like they haven’t had a down day in years) and you just need to say: Don’t fucking yell at me.

That’s it. Tell your Inner Motivational Speaker this: Speak kindly to me. Share because you care. Really believe in me. Today, I need you to whisper. Or…Today, I need you to give me a rock opera of pure love. Be kind.

You can sing the same anthems. Go get ‘em! Carpe diem! Sleep when you die. Never give up. But sing them from your heart, not your lack mentality.

Inner motivation is a two-way conversation, not a dictation.
 

Sweetened assurances won’t make you too soft, they’ll make you mightier.

Inner kindness translates to mega motivation.

 

All Love,

So…Let’s talk about your boundaries. For starters, do you have any?

I think at least half of every “problem-solving” conversations I have with my girlfriends is about boundaries. We give it to each other straight up: You need to re-work that contract. You need to just tell her no. You can’t let him do that anymore. Stop. We have ALL been on one side of that conversation.

The initiated woman

She has gone through the eye of a needle, stripped, shed, pared down to the pure pith of her power. The few people who have seen her so naked will never speak of that beauty to anyone else.

How to offer support for someone feeling suicidal (...and hope for anyone in that painful place)

How to offer support for someone feeling suicidal (…and hope for anyone in that painful place)

May our suffering transform into liberating strength, and our despair into an incredible beauty that carries us to joy over and over again. And with deepest humility and respect for each person’s path I say: May these words save lives, and may those lives be well lived and wildly loved.

Comparing Your Pain to others Danielle LaPorte

Comparing your pain to others?

Sometimes pain comparison is an act of consciousness. It’s an empowering way to refine your thoughts and create your reality and practiced gratitude. And sometimes…pain comparison only numbs out our truth.And sometimes…pain comparison only numbs out our truth. And when we numb out, we dumb down. We become less conscious, and less useful to those around us. Denying your personal pain won’t lessen other people’s suffering…
