Thanks again, to ALL of you WOMEN + SOULS SIPPING ON LIFE from around the globe, for being with me for the past 75 episodes! I’m so grateful, and appreciate each and every one of you! TODAY’S S.O.L. STORY has absolutely made my entire day…WEEK!!

Seriously, I don’t think I’ll ever forget it!!

It’s that moment when someone unexpectedly recognizes you and your work…and you realize that your life’s work really IS making a difference in someone’s life — besides your own!!

Thanks again to dear, Sarah, for sharing her “Strange Question” with me. Heck, it wasn’t “strange” at all…it was AWESOME, and I loved it. I’m so glad she asked!

It was confirmation to my heart that YES…I know what I’m called to do, and am listening to my heart and soul, and sharing its message.

Are YOU listening to what’s in your heart?

Are you listening to the message that’s IN you, and crying out for you to share it?

What do you KNOW that your heart’s desiring for you to do?

Seriously, what I’m saying here IS that there’s a message WITHIN you as well, my dear!

What is IT for YOU? Will you do what YOU’RE called to do?

We never know how far reaching something we say, think, do, feel today will have on the life of another.

When you follow your passion, YOU could be the answer for someone else’s question at the exact, right moment in time.

Would you be willing to notice and listen to your heart, even if you’re not sure anyone else will listen to you?

If you ARE currently doing your life’s work, and you feel as though it’s not quite going the way you’d like OR it doesn’t seem as though anyone’s noticing or listening…

If it matters to you, KEEP DOING IT.

I want to encourage you today. DO NOT STOP.

Keep pressing in, leaning in, and going through to the breakthrough of fully expressing what’s in you.

This is my personal definition of HEALTH — It’s FULL EXPRESSION OF LIFE.

Are you allowing your HEART to be fully expressed in ALL areas of your life?

Are you willing to share YOU with US?

There’s no greater day to be alive than TODAY!

Let your heart sing its song!!

Pay attention to your heart. Listen. Do what you’re called to do. Be who you’re called to be.



Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL.

Write down what you’d uniquely like to share with the world. Whatever this is for you…


If you ARE sharing your message, and you’re feeling a little discouraged right now, write this down: YOU CAN DO IT! KEEP GOING, MY DEAR!!

Write yourself a little CHEERLEADER…ENCOURAGEMENT LETTER. “You can do it. Don’t stop…”

Commit to what you’d like to start, and take at least one step today.

Someone on the other side of the globe, or your own back yard, is waiting for you to show up and share.
