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

Examining our expectations and what it means to deeply let go.

Whether you need to perform major surgery on your commitments, or you need to just blow some shit up and walk away, healthy letting go requires mindfulness. So let’s really feel and think this through to get you free and clear.

Dear God, help me out with the basics, would you-Danielle-LaPorte

Dear God, help me out with the basics, would you?

Show me how to love the ones that are like, really hard to love. The misogynists and boundary bullies, the fake leaders and land-rapers. Actually, for the sake of efficiency, just show me how to love the most greedy. That should cover it. (But while we’re at it, help me out with the Mean Girls, ‘cause like, whoa.)

How to hone your truth detector-Danielle-LaPorte

How to hone your truth detector.

There’s so much faking it to make it and deception happening in every sector of life — from politics to self-improvement. So how can we hone our truth detectors?

Women, boundaries, and spirituality. The perfect storm.

Women, boundaries, and spirituality. The perfect storm.

In my experience, boundary obliviousness is part of the initiation into wholeness. I don’t think you have to warrior your whole life for it, but it’s a passage to self-agency that most women seem to have to go through. Boundaries help us expand our consciousness.
