Fun Quotes from the Show:
“When you’re disrupting things it’s like an earthquake. The ground underneath you is cracked and it’s wonderful because it is opening new possibilities, it is giving you more solid ground moving forward. While all the positive energy is there, it feels very disconcerting while you are in it.”

“You really can’t create what you want moving forward with what you were doing or who you were being with what you currently have. And you have to let go of who you were being and what you were doing.”

“It’s about navigating uncertainty.”

“You’re doing great even if you don’t feel super excited, high vibe, and super positive and everything doesn’t seem like it’s going your way. It doesn’t always feel good to grow. It doesn’t always feel happy to progress.”

“Even if you are in pain or there is discomfort, it’s all part of the process of growth. Find ways to nurture and nourish your soul while you are expanding into a new version of yourself.”

“I hope you feel encouraged and have a little more gas in your rebellious tank to keep on chugging along.”
