Today what comes to mind is shame. The word shame. The feelings of shame. A lot of the stuff that comes up around trauma, for myself and for others, is shame. Shame really means that you think something is wrong with you. That what happened to you has something to do with the way you are. But it is that thought that holds on to trauma, holds on to old patterns and beliefs, and manages to keep you small - to keep you in shame. I have shame around my body. A lot of shame around my physical appearance. Shame around my sexual appetite and preferences. Shame shame shame. And I release it. I am leaving it behind here in Bali. And I started with some naked suntanning. I am me. That’s it. I am defined by anyone’s definition of beauty but my own. And I love that.
Thanks for the great experience @aumrudrakshadesigns

| M Y D U T Y I ( Business ) ⠀ I absolutely love the quote by Seth Godin where he states that “Being born in the devleloped world is not a privaledge, it’s a duty”. ⠀ This past weekend I celebrated an amazing week of work by driving up North in Bali to see some epic friends, doing even more epic things. ⠀ On this trip I was reminded of this quote and the truth behind doing what I do in the wellness community. ⠀ This little boss is @being.ryanyada’s daughter J. Ryan has been a friend, mentor and big part of my development as a human being for almost three years now. And his family embodies this statement by Seth in its purest form. ⠀ As business owners, ambitious humans and overall bad asses in the world, I believe it is our duty to enact rad businesses and build up others around us to ensure that we leave this place better than we found it, especially for our little ones. ⠀ Being with these humans this past weekend was a huge reminder to me of the power behind living a life with this intention. It creates way more ripples than I think I ever imagined. ⠀ So I say to you now, if you have an idea, a passion, a goal, or the drive to do something for others, get out there and fricken do it! ⠀ From my personal experience, doing so has define my why, brought clarity to my every day and will make some amazing ripples that will be felt by so many more than I can begin to know. ⠀ I do this because I owe it to my friends, my family and all of our future little ones that will inherit whatever we end up leaving for them. #myduty #ourkids #motivation #intention ⠀
