Homecoming

Do you choose a theme for the year? My theme for the year is Homecoming. When I reflected on what I wanted 2021 to be like for me, I kept coming back to the idea that I wanted to really feel like I was sinking into myself. I want to show up as myself 100%I […]

Kamala Harris

I keep thinking about Kamala Harris’ performance during the Vice Presidential debate last week. It was such a familiar scene. A woman of color who is clearly the smartest and most qualified person in the room but has to bend over backwards to showcase her confidence and her expertise in the most delicate way possible, […]

2020 is about to be ??

Last week I asked you what was the thing you’d been burying.Your idea, your desire that you’d pushed down for so long “because.” The response was almost overwhelming. We all have SOMETHING buried inside us that we’ve pushed off and accepted as a far-fetched dream.But what if we could turn whatever that has been hiding […]

The Burial

What is your thing — THE THING— that you’ve wanted to do forever? Do you have this idea that has just been hanging out inside you for as long as you can remember, that you just haven’t acted on? Maybe it’s not an idea, maybe it’s a desire.Learning a new language.Taking a pole dancing class.Going […]

I’m Sick Of Being Asked This Question

‘Why do you feel like we need diversity and inclusion in the outdoors industry?’It’s the million dollar question asked of me in some variation when I’m featured on a podcast, quoted in an article, or basically interviewed for anything. Usually asked by a ‘well-meaning’ white person who just can’t fathom why a Black woman might […]

There’s No Such Thing As Balance

If you’re ambitious, high-achieving, are a wife and/or mother and look even remotely put together, people ask you this question as if you have some magic formula locked away. I won’t even get into why men aren’t asked this question. How […]

Run With Me?

I don’t about you, but I’m determined to not let the events of 2020 so far define who 2020 ends. This pandemic, witnessing white folks become aware of racism, participating in the movement for Black lives will be recorded in history, and rightfully so. But in your personal record books, in your history and legacy, […]

Your Joy Is Rebellion

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been talking to clients, friends, and peers and the one theme that keeps coming up is that they don’t feel like they’re doing enough in this moment. We’re experiencing a flurry of emotions: anger, astonishment, relief, overwhelm, joy.We’re protesting, calling folks out on social media and in real life, […]

Celebrating Juneteenth

‘We are our ancestors wildest dreams.’ – Unknown No matter how you choose to celebrate Juneteenth, I want you to pause for one moment and recognize the magnitude of today. Can you imagine the swelling sense of joy and pride your great-great-great-great Grandmother and Grandfather have when they see YOU? What you’ve built.What you fight […]

Freedom

Freedom is not given, it is WON.– A. Phillip Randolph. Do you feel FREE? With next week being Juneteenth, and an awakening happening in America (this is me being hopeful), I’ve been thinking about what really makes you free. What does freedom look like for Black, Indigenous, and Brown folks? I shared a bit of […]
