Hesitation. Okay, I said it. It’s the abyss that occurs between the moment you have an inspired thought or idea, and bam…you hesitate. How long does it last? How much is it costing you? How do you STOP it — especially when it comes to you not being you? Let’s find out…

Today’s S.O.L. STORY is inspired by my 17 year old self.

This was also the same year I began a journey of love that led to heartache, pain, shame, loss, grief, and undeniable delay…

Hesitation. It’s based in fear.

Fear of loss.

Fear of fear.


Forgetting Everything And Running.


Fully Engage And Remember.

Remember WHO you are.

Remember what/who you love.

Remember who loves YOU.

What if you didn’t have to be afraid of loss because you’ve already given it YOUR ALL?

It’s what I call fearlessly fearless.

It’s not about being without fear.

It’s about no longer fearing LESS.

It’s about fearing…less.

It’s not about forgetting.


Re-membering your members.

Who are THEY that you take with YOU?

I take LOVE. I take LIFE.

And when I fail to go because I hesitate, it robs my members of love and life.

Remember to STOP hesitating.


SAY IT — out loud.
Take a deep breath.
One. Two. Three.
Push play.

Instead of…

Think it.
Talk yourself out of it.
Nothing counts
Push/Pull and resist all day.

It’s GO TIME, my dear.

Let’s GO.

Create the plan. Commit to it. Live it. Love it.

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)


Where in your life are you hesitating right now?

Identify it.

Discover YOU. Fully Engage And Remember.

Then create a plan. Commit to it. Live it. Love it.

And S.T.O.P. as often as needed…

I would love to hear what happens for you…
