Sweet like honey, and sledgehammer-hard: lessons from my year.

Sweet Friends,

After one more trip around the sun, here are a few of my learnings (some of which came down like honey, others, like a sledgehammer. #reallife):

Devote—all in, no half-assing commitment to the Light. Do it for the Love. Hold your friends close. If you can’t find the funny in it, yer fucked. Laughter fuels resiliency—if you can crack a joke in tragedy, you’re going to be alright.

Trying to be cool delays satisfaction. Get excited. Show it. You might get hurt. Find something or someone else to get excited about. The supply of excitement worthiness is unlimited.

Your body is never “attacking itself”. That’s one of the most damaging myths of modern medicine.

Presence is where the payoff is, just be with what’s going on in front of you. The next right step comes from that place.

Being misunderstood will not kill you. You know who you are.

Not many people will run into a burning building for you. As for the ones who will—never let them go.

LEAD.

Compassion can be excruciating—it’s the medicine. Listening is an underrated hobby. Be INTERESTED. And please, just meditate, k?

If you chase only the numbers, you miss the gold. Burn it down when it’s holding you back—there is magic in the ashes. Only the flexible survive.

Love is the most inefficient and often inconvenient way to EUPHORIA. But… EUPHORIA. I’m so in. If you orient your whole life around doing THE MOST LOVING THING… you get strong, stronger, fucking strongest. So strong. Love-strong.

 

Thank you to everyone who poured light into my life this year. As for my personal new year, I’m going for all passion-making and minimal on the awesomely gnarly life lessons. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Only Love,
Danielle LaPorte

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)

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…
