Before you give up, read this…

Being true to yourself is not always easy. For fear of not being accepted, we tailor our personality, mince our words, and carve our opinions to fit in. It takes courage to be real… and it takes stamina because if you want the best out of life, it will demand the best of you time and time again.

When you choose to be real—from standing up for the small things that bring you pleasure, to the public ways you try to save the world—there will likely be tough choices and 11th-hour changes. There will be misunderstandings, uncomfortable silences, and sometimes, there will be isolation.

When do you feel like giving up? What discourages you, or tempts you to doubt that sweetness is on the way? Now, write down three remedies for discouragement… lunch with your best friend; a visit to church; dusting off your diplomas, re-reading a love letter, swimming twenty laps; warm soup eaten in silence.

And, I have one more for you. Here’s the backstory: last month we did a campaign called Letters for Renewal. Thirty days of wisdom + art, for more courage, conviction, and hopefulness. You received one letter a day from a different writer to help you keep going.

It was a beautiful month. Poetry, music, dance, a few tears… We collected all the letters into one potent package, so that whether you were part of the campaign or not, you could tap into all the magic in one place.

Read it cover to cover in one sitting, or open it up every morning like a daily vitamin. Go in order, or flip it open to a random page as an oracle. Whatever you need. It’s right here for you, when you need hope, ideas, encouragement, or comfort…

Keep going,

Danielle LaPorte

How to let go… even if you’re hooked on holding on.

Active letting go helps you shed the inessential, so that you can get closer to your source of vitality. And you don’t have to wait until you’re 100% confident about letting go. You’ve carried stuff long enough. Obligations, old promises, dreams that have lost their lustre…

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.

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…
