Every day this past week, I’ve been sitting down to write welcome postcards to Campers who are going to be joining me in August. It’s sacred and special because I’m welcoming women to the inaugural year of one of my lifelong dreams — a Summer Camp for Grown Ups.
(Or as I’ve been calling it on Twitter — Camp for Grown Ass Ladies!)
As I write each name and address out, I spend a moment throwing out a wish that she’ll receive everything she’s craving from our 5 days together. I spend a moment hoping that we’ll all get to see her authentic self emerge over campfires and canoe races and intimate cabin conversations. And I spend a long moment wondering why this particular woman from Ohio or Alberta or Michigan is coming to Camp.
When I think back to some of the most transformative times in my life, they all involved two things — A Break from My Real Life + My People. From my 10 month backpacking trip around the world to my 4 month road trip honeymoon, from the World Domination Summit to my weekends with my Elevate Ladies — those pieces are ALWAYS there. And now? I’m creating this kind of experience for YOU with Stratejoy Summer Camp. (And me too! Who am I kidding?!)
I want to be joyful above all else, but also in union, of service, divine and wild.
I want my work to feel like play.
I want to create with fire in my belly, because I see a need in the world that I can ease. I want to be proud of my process, proud of my product, proud of my power.
I want my clients and my community to know that I love them in all their messiness because I do. I want being on retreat (or camp) with me to feel inspiring, raw, supportive and magical. I want to remember that I don’t take on others’ heaviness or fears or despair — I simply listen and love and offer my gifts.
(Today’s post is part of an awesome blog tour headed up by my friend Andrea Owen of Your Kick-Ass Life. Starting February 1st, she’s hosting The Kick-Ass Courage Project: 7 Day Challenge. She’s challenging women to do two Very Important Things — start cultivating self kindness and self compassion (aka stop being such a bitch to […]
Let’s make this short and sweet — My secret to getting everything I want?
Silence. Reflection. Solitude. Visioning.
It’s why Walden went to the woods, it’s why Cheryl Strayed hiked the Pacific Coast Trail, it’s why 26 year old me backpacked around the world for 10 months.
It’s Holiday Council Time! Cue mega excitement in my world. (Want to head straight to the registration page? Click HERE!) I’ve been leading this 21 day December journey for 5 years now, learning more each season about what makes a powerful experience for YOU. I always strive for a balance between inspirational and useful — […]
I was just feeding my daughter Juliet in the semidarkness of her nursery, noticing her little knuckle dimples as she clutched my finger and her sweet rosebud mouth. I was breathing in her baby scent and watching her dark eyelashes close as she drifted to sleep, while I sat, rocking and thinking.
Rocking and thinking about how she’s going to have big beautiful dreams for her life. About how she’ll meet plenty of resistance because life is fucking messy sometimes. About how she’ll need guidance from me, but also a chance to fly on her own.
So many journeys ahead for this tiny girl of mine.
I’m sorry to break it to you, love, but there are no magical answers.
You’re stuck because you keep waiting for the path to be illuminated from above. You’re stuck because you’re looking for the way forward to be labeled steps one through ten, for the breakthrough to be found in the very next book you read, for the certainty to be bestowed upon you by an expert.
I run a successful coaching practice from home. I have a two year old (Max) and a four month old (Juliet.) I have a nanny working 20-30 hours a week. I have a supportive awesome husband. And I am totally wearing slippers and yoga pants right now. Want to know how it all comes together? Watch the […]
I’ve been on “maternity leave” from this blog, my newsletter and most emails since Juliet was born in late May. I’ve been dreaming, brainstorming, reading some amazing books, coaching my Elevate women, booking retreat spaces and integrating some new systems for my business backend, but as far as forward facing activities that you could see — I was invisible.
And being invisible was harder than I thought it was going to be.
Even with all the work I’ve done around changing my definition of success to internal measures, and not external validation, it was still hard.
