Who Are You In Your Most You-ness?

A funny older woman shaking her finger with a blue bubble and the words Who Are You In Your Most You-ness?

Truly…who are you?

What makes you tick?

What makes you come alive?

What makes you peeyourpants with laughter?

What makes you holy rage?

What do you run towards?

What makes you run away?

What will they say when you pass away?

What are your favorite memories?

How does someone feel in your presence?

What do you want people to most know?

What is the thing that only you can do?

What dreams do you have and will they come true?

What makes you weep?

What makes you smile from the inside out?

What are your weak spots?

Your not-so-guilty pleasures?

What trait embarrasses you?

If your heart were a painting, what style would it be?

What are your paradoxes and dichotomies?

What hills are you willing to die on?

What is 80-yo you most looking forward to?

Where does shame hide deep inside?

What recharges your energy?

What scares the bejeebus out of you?

What traits do your fave people share?

What are you doing when all your senses are delightfully engaged?

You are a gloriously, magnificent creature; there is only one you.

Self-awareness is sexy. Remember that. Also? You’re never too old to step into your most you-ness. Old is the new young. It’s a whole vibe.

Need some help? My clients LOVE creating their Most You-ness Pinterest boards. Here’s mine for example. Create your own board and then go live your PleasureFULL ™ life.

You are worthy. You matter too. It’s ok to put yourself first for a SELFISH hot minute.

Love, Me

I used to roll my eyes at the notion of self love and loving my life because it felt so far outside the realm of possibilities. I thought both were saved for those who'd escaped childhood unscathed.

But a perfect storm in 2015 had me wake TF up and heal my childhood ish. Along the way, I started to not only love but LIKE myself and I stopped wanting to escape from my life and instead, intentionally create my exciting future. That's saying a lot when you read my stories!

And now? I get to help women all around the world fall in love with themselves, their lives, and create the future THEY want. How cool is that?!?

Make Shit Happen coaching to help you bring your Big Ass Goals w/Soul (BAGS) to life and live your Fuck Yeah. Life doesn't wait. Give your fucks wisely & live your life fully.
