I achieved all my goals last year and feel no different. Here's why:

What if I told you that achieving all your goals would do absolutely nothing for you? 

Now, maybe that’s taking it a little far. I’m a goal-setter and goal-getter myself. I made and achieved all my big goals for 2016, blowing some out of the park. Yet, I feel exactly the same about myself. 

Why is that?

Achievement is temporary. Your new status, job, move, love interest, diet… it all will become your new normal and you will go back to how you felt before, unless you change from the inside out. 

It’s like the old saying, “everywhere you go, there you are again."

So, instead of asking yourself what you want to do in 2017, I beg you to ask yourself,

“How do I want to be in 2017? How to I want to feel? How do I want to live?"

I promise you a list of goals and resolutions will do nothing to change the way you feel in your life unless you change the way you do your life.

It all started with deeply knowing yourself, discovering yourself from the inside out, and aligning your life from that place- it’s an inside out kinda job! 

So, here’s my challenge to you.

Instead of making goals and resolutions as you begin 2017, give yourself 5 minutes a day for 31 days for reflection in the new + updated 2017 edition of the Come Alive Journal Guide! Start your year with self-care routine and a simple daily practice of self-awareness. I created a free resource to help you along the journey! The Come Alive Journal Guide gives 31 prompts to help you get totally centered and create goals unique designed for you in 2017. 

It’s time to come alive to the real you, to make goals from a place of love, and feel the way you really long to feel.

Join me and the rest of the Tribe in a 31 day challenge starting Jan 5 through the guide! Share your journey by tagging me and using the hashtag #comealiveguide on Instagram! Can’t wait to see how you Come Alive in 2017.


5 Questions to ask when you feel like a hot mess

Girl, I’ve been there. After a long week you're tired of the job you only like sometimes, the demands of relationships you can’t keep up with, the weight of wishing you had it all figured out a little bit more.

It’s h e a v y. 

It’s even heavier because you feel like you have to carry the weight alone, or I should say, heavier because you’re hiding it.

Let’s face it, life’s messy, and pretending it’s peachy just messes it up even more! When you’ve come to the end of it all and start to wonder if it's you that's a mess, it’s time for some self-reflection.


  1. What do I need to thrive? (am I meeting my baseline needs like sleep, food, and a social life?!)
  2. What do I know to be true?
  3. What is one thing I could do today to remind me of who I am?
  4. Who would love me no matter what?
  5. Am I honoring the real me?

Some of the questions will make you think on honoring your baseline needs, while others take you a bit deeper and ask if your soul is thriving. Before you let yourself feel messed up, pause. Reflect on the 10 questions and embrace your messy life!
