Journal of a Major Life Shift: Part II - The Edge of Fear

So, here you are, aware that you want something more out of life. Craving adventure, purpose, passion. Wanting that reason to not only drag yourself out of bed in the morning, but to jump out, eager for the day and its experiences. Asking yourself maybe, “Why aren’t all people at this place?”

Journal of a Major Life Shift by Drew Girardin

Suffice it to say, I got to the point (and a lot of you may have been there at one point or another) of asking myself “What am I doing with my life? Is this it, or is there more to it?” This is the first fork…the first of many on the way to Know Thyself, a concept used throughout history amoung philosophers of varying disciplines and in pop culture. Like most decisions, there is not really a wrong answer. I had the option to pursue this question, or to push it aside and carry on with my life.

Deliverance

Deliverance

Deliverance is a mighty and powerful word. A word that can cause a group to rise up and fight, but that can bring a man to his knees in humbleness. It can bring hope to places of darkness, and kindness to broken hearts. It is an inspiring word that reminds us all that we have the power to persevere. There is an old Irish saying that goes, "when a sailor finds himself battling a raging storm he does not pray to be rescued, but rather for deliverance from fear.

When It's "Never Good Enough": A Hopeful Story of Self Acceptance

When It's "Never Good Enough": A Hopeful Story of Self Acceptance

From the moment I wake up I am thinking about all the things I need to do today, and I often find myself going to bed saying that I didn't do enough. I've always felt like I've had a big purpose in this lifetime, and I constantly feel the weight of that on my shoulders. Funny enough I feel that pressure coming from both my personality and programming, and also from my Higher Self and inner calling. I feel the pressure of 'being the perfect woman', nails done, hair done, clean house, having my mental and emotional shit together, be successful. That has all been 'taught; to me. But I also feel the pressure that comes from what I can only attribute to unseen forces and a Plan far bigger than myself. And as an entrepreneur I am constantly encouraged for my 'drive'. But is passion for personal development and 'being better' the same thing? I used to think so, but I don't anymore.

What is a Life Activation? What is Energy Healing? WTF have I been doing these past few years???

What is a Life Activation? What is Energy Healing? WTF have I been doing these past few years???

I was at a crossroads of marriage, career, dreams and ambitions..all the while, being tethered to the skewed image of who I was and who I was to be. This person wasn’t ready to settle down into marriage, had bigger goals for the future than even the biggest dreamers thought possible. But none of this fit with who I was. There was still some fragmented parts of my self and my ancestry that either were holding me back and needed to be cleared out and some parts that were shattered and needed to be put back together.

Choosing a Career Path That Other People Don’t Understand: How to define success when the world might not be able to 

Choosing a Career Path That Other People Don’t Understand: How to define success when the world might not be able to 

I am a professional in a field that not many people validate and even fewer know exists. I have dedicated my life to the progression of myself, and in finding the highest means to be in service to others. 

My whole life I have be drawn to helping people. I have volunteered for many charities, been board director, spoke out against injustices, and created new systems to old problems. Every job I ever had was being in service. I was driven by an internal desire to fulfill my purpose, but there was mounting pressure from family and teachers to choose a career that was a ‘good choice’ for my future.

Where does everybody go when the party stops? - An unconventional road to addictions recovery

Where does everybody go when the party stops? - An unconventional road to addictions recovery

Having an addiction doesn't really seem like a problem. The problem comes when you want to make a change. I'll use my case as an example. I grew up middle-class which in a town that had a huge oil and ranching industry meant lower middle-class. I was always looking up, wanting the finer things, the best of everything to attain validation.

Change hits hard. When you decide it's time to change, sometimes life provides that with a swift kick in the ass. I did hit my breaking point.
