Love the egg you’re in. (This is not a sermon on patience. But…)

Incubation periods are not that glamourous.

The hope of what’s to come is sexy, but so much of that in-between, not-quite-yet time is frustrating.  

But let’s consider all of the benefits of being in your egg right now: Peace. Space. Privacy. When you finally hatch (and you will), it will be full force and no turning back. Your next career surge means you’ll have to cut a few holidays short and do your hair everyday. That lover you’re praying to have is going to arrive, sweep you off your feet, and then and take over half of your precious closet space. When you get what you’ve been working toward, there will be new stuff to deal with. And it will be part of your new incredibleness, but right now, in the egg, you have the sweetness of familiarity. So just enjoy it, because that easy pleasure helps soften any doubts you have about the future.

I know you’re probably doing all the right things to make your dreams come true. And I’m the last person on this side of the galaxy to tell you to be patient. I know nothing about it. When God was handing out patience I was already in the car, honking the horn. Let’s incarnate, already! But I do know that according to hens and science and most sages who actually waited in line for some patience, 

You can’t rush your hatching.
 It’s dangerous. The results can be disastrous and take a long time to overcome.

So savour the simplicity of your pre-dreams-come-true time. Love the egg you’re in. Because not too long from now—and right on time, you’ll be spreading your wings and life will never be the same again.


 

And for all your friends waiting for the breakthrough to come…help them love their egg-ness. Press forward. xo

Vancouver! Jan 12. Event!

We thought our Vancouver community might like to get in on the conversation. We’ll do a bit of mediation and prayer together, and we’ll all leave slightly more enlightened and open-hearted. Ideally. Hopefully. Highly likely. Who’s in?
LOVE.
Conversation & Contemplation with

Holidaze, holy days, and lightening it all up.

Ah, the holidays. Togetherness, twinkly lights, and… mass overconsumption, obligation, and so many opportunities for distraction. Most of us approach distraction as a time management issue—how we wrangle our to-do lists and goals.

Hey Fire Starter People

I’m in awe of your heart-work.

Dear Coaches, Teachers, Counselors… People who serve. If you’re in the business of Soul-work and service, how do take care of yourself?

Burn your journals. Maybe. Danielle LaPorte

Burn your journals. Maybe. Either way, here’s some inspiration on letting go.

I burned about 20 years of journals. Pages and pages of gut-red poetry and angst; cosmic gorgeousness and tender prayers; lists of wants, boyfriends (a loose term), and favourite perfumes. With every page I fed into the fireplace, I smiled. Thank you. Goodbye. Hellohhh here & now…

Danielle LaPorte How our business gives back

How our business gives back

When I started my own business, I made a decision to be public about our charitable giving. It was a practice I learned from Anita Roddick and the Canadian-based leaders (all women) of The Body Shop. The Body Shop was my first job-job and it baked the concept of a triple bottom line into my happily bleeding heart. The idea of sharing this is to inspire giving through business. I think we’re all gifters at heart. The flow of allowing and aiding is our natural way of being.
