Now Breathe – And Give Yourself A Pat On The Back

EricaFeatured0 Comments

You've earned it. Whatever you did today - it was enough. You are talented and amazing - and the world is lucky you're willing to share your gifts. Show up big and bold - and RAW and VULNERABLE. Trust me, true connection doesn't happen when you play small. Alexia Parks called me today. She said,…

There are 7.5 billion people in the world, but when your heart hurts, it feels like the population has shrunk to 2. You and the one who stole your heart. Everywhere you go. Everything you do.

Some people call it a Breakdown. Brene Brown's therapist calls it a "Spiritual Awakening". That moment when you lose it - and you're so completely lost inside yourself you don't care what anyone thinks.  You don't care what you look like, whether you've showered, you're completely oblivious to the booger hanging out of your nose,…

Everything about Aspen felt fake...except for him. My first day there, there is a woman wearing (I kid you not), a waist-length mink coat and 4-inch high heels in the dead of summer.

Erica's Beautiful Forest

I wasn't sure what to expect.  I thought that I would find answers, experience enlightenment, discover the secret of life.  I would come back different.  Forever changed.  I would know exactly who I am and what I want out of this "one wild and precious life".  And that's exactly what happened...well sorta.
