CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO: Create a life that feels like this. Three months ago, #hikingmyfeelings was just a hashtag I came up with during a training hike for the Trans-Catalina Trail. In August, we got a logo (love you @jamievaron/@shatterboxxdesign). Next Friday, my speaking tour kicks off with three stops in SoCal REI stores.
There is a ton of hard work and sacrifices and frankly, a whole spectrum of decisions (good, bad and everything in between) that came before and during this process.
I had to go through hell and back, burn it all down, and strip away everything I’m NOT in order to find out who I AM. Who I want to be. How I want to show up. What I want to do with my short time on this planet. And as soon as I got out of my own way, turned the process into a game, chose love over fear, committed to being all the way Sydney, and just surrendered to whatever the hell was supposed to happen, “it” started to happen.
You can do literally anything you set your mind to if you are willing to feel your feelings, dream as big as humanly possible (without judging yourself for dreaming big), and make some decisions.
Those aren’t easy asks. But they are simple ones. Feel it. Look at it. If it isn’t yours, release it. Then “yes, and” as much as humanly possible instead of assuming a “no” on the next idea that makes your soul sparkle. You might be surprised by what you’re capable of dreaming up for yourself when you give yourself permission to really dream.
Design a life that feels like this. Whatever THIS feels like to you.
