You’re Doing It Right.

youre-doing-it-right_email

In case you were wondering, you’re doing it right.

You’re in the perfect place at the perfect time doing the perfect thing.

You’re exactly where you should be, even if it doesn’t look the way you thought it would. {Tweet It}

youre-exactly-where-you-should-be-quote

Your timing is perfect and elegant and everything is unfolding as it should, even if it didn’t turn out the way you thought it would.

There is no grand master plan for your life that you can screw up by making the wrong decision or missing an opportunity.

What is for you cannot pass by you. May that be salve to your ever anxious soul.

You may feel invisible right now. Trust that your invisibility is exactly the incubation you need to burst forth in a flurry of light when the time is right.

You may feel like you missed the boat. Take heart. If you missed it, it wasn’t your boat.

You may feel like you’re too late or too early. Not possible. You’re only ever on time as far as your destiny goes.

Yeah, there are a few things you wished you’d done differently. But if you had, you wouldn’t have right now, your current reality. And even if right now isn’t what you wanted, it’s leading you somewhere that you do want. You can trust that.

There isn’t a wrong choice. There’s just the choice you make.

There are an infinite number of ways your life could go. The one you choose is the right one. {Tweet It}

You can’t screw it up. You can’t ruin your life. You can only live it.

So, rest easy and know: you’re doing it right.

 

OVER TO YOU:

Do you ever feel you aren’t on the right path? Do you lose sleep over getting it “right”? Whether you’ve experienced a shift in this thinking or not, I’d love to hear from you in the comments!

Why Trying to Find Your Purpose Might Be a Waste of Time.

why-trying-to-find-your-purpose-might-be-a-waste-of-time_email

There’s a lot of talk about finding your purpose in the self-help world. I’ve never been into it. I find the idea that any one of us has one particular purpose limiting. I love the fact that I’m lit up by being a writer, a marketer, a friend, a community creator, a leader, a mom,…

We Are Who We’ve Always Been

we-are-who-weve-always-been_email

I recently went through a bunch of boxes of stuff from my childhood that my mom had been saving in her basement (and requested that I remove given that I’m now an adult with my own basement). Though I’d delayed diving in because the task seemed overwhelming, it was actually really nourishing. Why? Because sitting…

We started a podcast! Introducing The Kate & Mike Show: Life, Love, and Business

we-started-a-podcast-the-kate-and-mike-show_email

Four years ago Mike and I sat in the living room of a hippy dippy house in Kona, Hawaii, bantering about something I can no longer remember the subject matter of. Our friend Danielle listened and said, “You guys should have a show. I would listen to it.” The idea went underground, as they so…

Are you living your own unique life or merely the opposite of someone else’s?

“You know what this is about?” she said. “I have no idea,” I replied. “This is about individuation,” she said. What? I had no idea what Barbara Stanny, one of my dear friends and mentors, was talking about. We were on a coaching call, and I was talking to her about the struggle I was…

Compartmentalization vs. Integration and How to Have It All.

compartmentalization-vs-integration-and-how-to-have-it-all_email

My girlfriend sent me an article about the four burners theory. The idea is that you have four burners in life: family, friends, health, and work. The overall idea is that in order to be successful (whatever that means), you have to cut off one burner. And in order to be really successful, you have…

On Control and the Inherent Brittleness of Being Rigid.

Control-and-the-Inherent-Brittleness-of-Being-Rigid_EMAIL

Rigid things break more easily. This is what I’ve found out. When P was less than 3 months old we hired a sleep consultant who taught us a bunch of hard and fast rules about baby sleep. We implemented them and it worked. P was sleeping two 6-hour stretches in the night. I smugly thought…

The Antidote to Perfectionism.

The_Antidote_To_Perfectionism_EMAIL

I was working on a bunch of marketing emails, and I just wasn’t feeling “in the flow.” My ideas and creativity seemed to be all backed up at the rotary. However, with a baby and limited childcare, I only had the two hours that I had booked to get the emails done before my deadline….

5 Ways to Have More Sex, Money, and Power

5 Ways to Have More Sex Money and Power_EMAIL

Money and sex. Everyone wants more of them, but we’re not supposed to talk about either. For better or worse, money and sex are potent ways to wield power in society. You can agree or disagree with this from a philosophical standpoint, but you can’t deny that it’s true. The thing that most people don’t…
