Don’t you ever get tired?
Tired of holding it all together.
Holding it together within yourself and then trying to hold everyone else’s shit together as well.
Trying, working, hustling, planning and overthinking.

Keeping your body and mind tense and always focused. Hustling for your worth out of pure irrational fear.

Fear that if you were to truly let go that you would lose all control over your life and that it would spiral out into mass chaos. That you wouldn’t survive and that you would lose all those around you. Read more

The room was dark and candlelight was all around me.
I stood in the center of the room alone on my yoga mat.
Apparently no one else wanted to come to this calm audio-guided class today.

I said to myself, “All alone today Addison. Let’s give it all we’ve got”.
But then I stopped in my thought.
I looked around and saw all the flickering candles and they reminded me of all the help I’ve got from my angels and guides.

Ladies, stop being too good for the knight and shining armor!

I remember being a little girl and watching/reading fairy tales where the prince would ride in and save the day. The damsel-like princess would hold onto him and they would ride away into the sunset of their happily ever after!

It was beautiful but even as a young girl I knew this was not the case in the real world. I enjoyed pretending but knew these were just stories. Women don’t need to be saved and aren’t helpless. I was, as many of you were, raised to believe in female independence and equality.

But if I’m honest a piece of these stories now and even then was appealing. The masculine riding in and allowing the feminine to surrender. There was a thread in these stories that felt “right”.

The element of surprise is so magical.
Yet when it comes to your life you squash the magic!!!

Today I drove a friend and her family to the airport for an adventure. She had not told her kids where the adventure would be and what it would entail and so as we drove she dropped little playful hints.

There was curiosity, there was laughter, there was anticipation in the car, and excitement for what was to come in the next few days.

You know what you want…
It brings about that turn-on and excitement in your very core when you think about it. It truly feels GOOD to you!
 
Though your head comes in with all the reason (which are actually just excuses) as to why it won’t work. Why it can’t work. Why it’s not a “smart” decision.

Lawn seats and I am singing my little heart out! I am thrilled to hear my favorite song but you can see me dancing along to almost every tune they decide to play.
 
Though I glance around.
And my breath catches for a moment as I look around at the crowd. I am truly amazed at how many people look like they are being tortured or just plain bored.
 
I look at a married couple right in front of me that doesn’t snuggle or kiss during the love songs… not even once.
