I have a fear
of not being heard
of not being understood
of not being known.
I think this leads me to say
most every little thing
I am feeling or thinking.
But I am learning
I don’t have to
say it all.
Not everyone needs to hear me.
Not everyone needs to understand me.
And most people aren’t going to understand me anyway.
And that’s OK.
what it comes down to
is that to be heard
I actually don’t need to be listened to

Full of air
but not of helium
your own breath
your own hopes
your own dreams
it floats just above the ground
threatening to land on
jagged fence posts
And now it seems
It’s my job to keep it afloat
It’s my job to protect it from hot lava
It’s my job to bounce it higher
It’s my job to guard it safely
It certainly seems my job
not to be the one
to pop it
And so I reach out to lift up
up up up
into the light
words of praise
And so I reach out to protect
tap tap tap
away from harm
words of encouragement
But as I reach out,
I may say the wrong words
I may do the wrong actions
Because it’s not my balloon.
And as I reach out,
I may miss
and that balloon
it may pop
So I can’t be the one
who holds your balloon
So I can’t be the one
to sustain it in air
So I can’t be the one
to guard you from disappointment
And I can’t be responsible
for your balloon.

I don’t think I’ve ever really introduced myself…
and after about 3 and a half years, it’s probably time. ;)
So here’s a video welcome from me to the KMW blog.
<3 Thank you for joining me on this journey <3

When fear rises
with its hateful sword
Evil glint in the eyes
charging straight toward
Angels form a wall
of light and love
truth from above
I am protected.
Fear Has No Power Here

I have to tell you
I’ve been having so much fun
in the Know My Worth Workshop
this month, that I’m doing a new one for May!
Let me tell you a little about it… (video)
So, are you tired of always trying to have it all together?
Being micro-managed by unrealistic expectations?
We fool ourselves into thinking perfectionism is one of those “weaknesses” we love to have. That we are just striving for excellence and being our best.
But actually, perfectionism causes
anxiety, depression, irritability and isolation.
I am tired of going it alone, being strong, having it “all together”
when inside I’m often falling apart.
I hope you will stand with me, and practice a little Un-Perfectionism!
We start Friday!
click here or on the image for more details.
PS – I want it to be a small group, creating the safety of getting to know each other and personalized support, so “seats” are limited to 21 women. And it’s only $99 for the entire 21 days – that’s the cost of a single coaching session.
PPS – the first 10 registrants also get a special bonus gift! Check it out :)

Give me the desire and the ability
to forgive myself
for times of being unaware
and not seeing things as clearly as I do now
for times of seeing acceptance
in people instead of you
for times of being naive
getting caught in someone’s snares
for times my words or actions
didn’t match who I want myself to be
for times of being human
needing space to learn and heal
for times of needing help
letting go of past hurts and old patterns
Give me the ability, desire, and the courage
to be compassionate with myself
to take steps forward
to believe I am worthy
just as I am.
