I'll not gonna lie, guys, some days are tough.
You know when you get that wave of overwhelm? When all of a sudden, you're aware of ALL the moving parts of your life, and in that moment, what little control you feel you have.
So much to do, so much to be responsible for, and never enough time or money to do it all.
This is where I was at last week. All of my old fears and limiting beliefs crept right back in.
"Should I have taken the job offer with a salary and benefits? Is my dream job really just a dream?"
"Am I ever going to have enough time to do everything that needs to get done?"
"Here I am multitasking again when I should be focusing on the baby."

After I unloaded all the thoughts that were circling in my brain, all of my fears, I found myself writing down the evidence that things were ok.
This list grew and grew, filling with things I had to be grateful for. The more I wrote the more that came to me.
All of a sudden, I wasn't radically thinking about everything that was going wrong, I was radically thinking about what was going right.
I got up from the couch and seriously felt a thousand pounds lighter. I felt like a different person, and that feeling has stayed with me since.
Almost immediately, within 24 hours, three new clients reached out asking to work with me, my son's procedure went great with no fracture seen in the x-ray, and I've been getting signs left and right from the Universe that everything is as it should be.
The Universe will always reciprocate the energy you
