Culture, ie the norm, makes us believe that the only way to be a worthy overachiever, a true trailblazer or a good person is to cure cancer and end world hunger. Not true.

You have already achieved beyond a lifetime’s worth by being:

  1. the first in your family to go to college
  2. the first woman in your lineage to have a career
  3. the first woman in your lineage to be financial independent
  4. the first in your family to have a spiritual awakening
  5. the first in your circles to leave a lame marriage
  6. the first in your community to move abroad
  7. the first in your industry to quit a lucrative job in search of fulfillment (my naturopath close her medical practice to open a wellness yoga center)
  8. the first in your sisterhood tribe to put self-care over people pleasing
  9. the first in your world to write or speak publicly about the unspoken
  10. the first in your society to chose grace (ie ease, peace, joy, truth and trust) over patriarchal conditioning
  11. the first, second, 22,222nd person to do the above
  12. born a woman.

It takes a mighty brave soul to chose to come to Earth as a woman, born with every disadvantage, and every advantage she does have labeled as a disadvantage by patriarchy. Mighty. Brave.

Remember this list when "Culture" or patriarchy (or worse misogyny) has taken a punch to your beautiful heart.

With infinite grace,

xo, Ella
