To blossom into the one you came here to be, it’s important to continue simplifying your life.

Our purpose is written on our bones. Our passions pulse through our veins. We are This One for a reason. Who we are makes sense, even if we can’t feel that in this moment.

Our only job is to do what we love (our passion) in a way that honors our life purpose. Until we have those pieces, our only job is to figure them out.

Refuse to allow the chaos to distract us from our truth.

Our modern way of living is filled with excuses and our schedules filled with distractions. Our heads are filled with fear and our hearts with the weight of a thousand old heartbreaks.

Our homes are filled with the physical world remnants of the past—an unkept archive of both pain and possibility. We long to grow and change but the space keeps pulling us back into the old ways. The sea of chaos pushes us forward and then pulls us back.

We feel inspired, and then defeated.

It doesn’t have to be this way. It cannot continue to be this way. This is a matter of integrity. Our integrity is on the line. The world needs us. Now is the time.

It is time to get real, Wild One. It’s time to open your eyes and look at your reality. Is this what you came here to do?

Is this the life of your dreams?

Seriously—think about it. Think about you.

Do you have space in your life for the real you?
