What’s the measurement system for “too much”?

It’s too much.

You’re too much.

Your dreams are too much.

You’re asking for too much.

But, what’s “too much”?

What is the definition of “too much”?

Who gets to say what constitutes “too much”?

It’s all relative, isn’t it?

There is no universal definition of too much. No universal measurement system.

What is too much to one person may not be enough for someone else.

What’s too much in one context may not be enough in another.

It’s a vague idea. A dangerous one.

When we buy into the idea that what we want is too much we cut ourselves off from our dreams, from our soul’s desires.

And that is really fucking dangerous.

Cutting ourselves off from our dreams.

Separating ourselves from our soul’s truth.

Living out of alignment with our soul, our values.

It creates problems.

It creates dis-ease in our minds and bodies.

It has us falling into feelings of frustration, disappointment, depression.

By buying into someone else’s idea of “too much” we fail to live the life we know, deep in our hearts, that we’re here to live.

So, the next time you catch yourself saying something is too much.

The next time you find yourself shrinking down your dreams.

The next time you notice yourself asking for less than what you really want.


And ASK yourself…

Whose belief system am I living in, whose definition of “too much” am I accepting as truth?

It’s not yours. I guarantee it.

Your definition of “too much” will never put you in the position of denying your desires.

So pause.



Change the definition.

And always remember, you absolutely can Love Your Life and Live Your Dreams. It all begins within.

What makes you happy?

What makes you happy?   So many of us know what makes those around us happy. But we don’t know what makes us happy. It’s a sad state of affairs when we can’t even name ten things that bring us joy and happiness. When we don’t know what makes us happy we go...

This is your ONE life.   How have you been living it? Are you living it so that on your death bed—which could be tomorrow, next week, next year, in ten years or decades from now—you’re proud of how you lived? Or have you gotten lazy? Become complacent.  ...

It’s Not About Action For Action’s Sake

It's not about action for action's sake.   You don't take action just to take action. You take action because it’s your next aligned step. There is a difference between action and aligned action. Sometimes when you don't feel like doing the thing you know you...
