Resilience for me is a form of ‘getting by’…

“Thrive through the entire journey.
Why simply aim for resilience?

Jennifer Hough

For me, resilience is a good start but if I stayed with that as my ultimate goal, it’d feel like a booby prize.

It’s not my ultimate goal.

In a constantly changing world the key, for me, is to thoroughly enjoy this journey.

It’s thriving through the change.

I do this by answering the question: “What is the greatest thing I can do, with my skills, that would have me waking up inspired, and going to bed at night satisfied?”.

I wanted to share with you some steps I practice so that, if you choose to do them, you’ll stay in flow, too:

  1. SEEK THIS FIRST: Be curious, and seek to understand.

  2. YOUR PERSONAL BOARD OF ADVISORS: Find mentors and programs where you’ll learn skills to thrive in both work and play.
  3. EVERYTHING CHANGES: If you don’t absolutely lean into life with this assumption, then you’ll always be in resistance to evolutions which are inevitable.
  4. STAY ON THE LEADING EDGE: Learn new leadership skills, go to trainings that are outside of the box.
  5. STRIVE TO LOVE AND ENJOY CHANGE: Rather than simply being resilient, find ways to enjoy an ever-changing life.

I’d love you to share your thoughts on this with me.

With love,



I spent a good portion of my childhood trying to be enough.

I spent a good portion of my childhood trying to be enough.

Worthiness. I spent a good portion of my childhood trying to be enough.

How about you?

Every time you seek to prove your worth, you are coming from a place that presumes that you’re somehow lacking.

You were literally an etheric metaphysical being, who poured into a body in perfect timing. You are a meat suit flying through space at 55,000 miles per hour while miraculously housing a soul and spirit. You witness sunsets, mountain tops, births, deaths. You breathe the air that trillions of trees breathe out just for you!

Fears and freedom

Fears and freedom

The other morning, as I was pulling out an old plant that took up a lot of room and was on its way out, I heard the bell from the Baptist church down the road, at the same time as I caught a glimpse of the peonies I was planting to replace the old bush.

I love peonies. They remind me of Canada and my front yard. They take me to an emotional home place. That’s why I’m planting them. I keep imagining seeing the peonies while I’m sitting on my front porch.

At the gathering place down the road, the minister is impassioned and talks very loudly. Sometimes, he’s incredibly inspiring and I just stand outside on the road and listen, while at others when he talks about the challenging aspects of humanity, there’s fear within the church. I speak at many churches, so this isn’t about making church wrong, but rather the idea that most of humanity spends time finger-pointing.

My heart is so full of blessings…

My heart is so full of blessings…

After a rich and vibrant time in the Embodiment Workshop in Asheville, my heart is so full of blessings.

I’m so grateful for the participants, the TWA Team, and so incredibly blessed to have opulence everywhere around me in my garden. Not only for the lettuce, but the seeds for new lettuce. It’s truly overflowing …

I’m grateful for all the shifts and clarity that happened for both myself, and collectively, and wanted to share something with you…
