A coach I follow online (go follow her if you wanna get your ass kicked straight back into your soul) sent an email yesterday with the subject:

“Nothing can ever stop or slow us”


Do you believe that?

Does it feel real and close?

Or false and far?

Do you want to believe that?

What if it were true?

What if it were true that you are always in the perfect place at the perfect time doing the perfect thing being the perfect you to create the life you know you are truly meant for?

What if, beyond the ideas of being ‘behind’, feeling shame about your ‘progress’ in life, comparison with others, feeling so far from your dreams and desires…

what if, underneath all that bullshit…

the truth actually is:

Nothing can ever stop or slow you from You,

from what you are here to do, who you are here to be, where you are meant to go, etc etc etc?

I mean, that’s some kind of fuckery, to think that the standard and linear trajectory that we thought we are supposed to follow,

the things we are meant to have at ‘this point in our lives’

is all really… IN OUR HEAD?

Like there really are no obstacles to what we desire.

There really is nothing that is slowing us down.

Granted, maybe we are not exactly hurtling down in a visible fashion toward our dreams,

experiencing all the synchronicities that other people seem to be coming into,

doing all the things,

going all the places that our Facebook feed reminds us we’re not going to.

But really, what if the thing that really needs your focus and attention is YOU?

Is the inner deep You, who has been neglected.

Who has been tossed to the side because you had held some weird beliefs about how life is supposed to be,
