Burning the old, New Desire & Plenty of gifts: December Roundup
This month included burning my old site and birthing a new one, the debut of The Desire Map by popping champagne with 13,300+ people, and leaving lame ideas to make way for a bigger, brighter 2013. Lots.
My new website! Tra-La! With surprises and all the white space I dearly love. You’ve gotta burn stuff to make room for even truer truth.
Why I gave up chasing goals. Intentions & goals are tools for liberation. But when we use goal-chasing like a hammer, it can beat up on our self-esteem, relationships, and creativity.

Courage breathes deep whole breaths. Courage rolls up doubt and smokes it.
Allowing for what you want & deepening desire: In conversation with Eric Handler of PositivelyPositive.com. In this LiveStream event on Facebook, we touched on: How can you tell if it’s time to let go of a goal? Can you “convince” your partner to make internally-driven goals instead of focusing “out there”?
The whole effing gorgeous point of desire mapping (and how I slipped off my own track). Constant racing for success creates habitual and unconscious goal-setting. We need to re-learn how to move toward our dreams — with the grace of trust, the grit of devotion, and the thrill of true presence.
10 Really Lame Ideas & Beliefs To Let Go Of. The title says it all.
