Lets Talk About Your Life. Do you feel Joyful? Connected? More Importantly, does your life feel the way you want it to feel
When I read the Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte for the first time, my life was not feeling like I wanted it to. I had this overwhelming sense that I was missing to on something, that I was;t using my Divinely Inspired gifts, that I wasn't being used for my own soul's purpose. I was feeling 'bleh', like, "now what", or "is this all there is", when am I going to make a positive, grass roots difference in the lives of others? I knew from gobs of transformational work I had done in the past that contribution was the largest game on the planet and I wasn't finding my own unique inspiration.
There was nothing from the outside worth complaining about ..a wonderful job, working with tremendous human beings that I enjoyed very much, earning a great living, enjoying a healthy life with those that I lived and enjoyed spending time with, but SOMETHING WASN'T RIGHT.
“We’ve got the procedures of achievement upside down. We go after the stuff we want to have and accomplish outside of ourselves, and we hope and pray that we’ll feel great when we get there. it’s backwards. And its burning us out” The Desire Map, Danielle LaPorte
I am no stranger to burn out. I have spent the last 12 years creating a life where burn out is no longer an option. At 38 years old I was your typical Type A personality-BURN & CHURN. Move that mountain? No problem. Leap that tall building while creating a sales campaign to capture a brand new market? No biggie. Travel 60-70% of the time at the same time? Sure! Whatever I had to do to get ‘there’ I did and I torched my insides in the process. The journey of coming back from that was a technicolor, 3-D adventure full of peaks and valleys. For the last several years, I had found a pretty good rhythm. Things were smoothing out nicely, but there was still that little niggling soul calling.
I was trolling through my inbox one morning looking for a bit of inspiration when I noticed that Marie Forleo was interviewing Danielle LaPorte on MarieTV. Didn’t have a clue who she was. It was all of a 10 minute interview and I was hooked, riveted to my computer screen. What Danielle was saying was so compelling because it was ON POINT. The rest is history. That was over a year ago. Enter THE DESIRE MAP. A book and a process that changed my life. The Desire Map was the catalyst for change I needed.
The book isn’t just intellectual theory, it actually walks you through the process of practical (+soulfully) creating a life that you actually want to live, connected to people, experiences and things that you you actually want to be connected to.
It seems to obvious, right? Of course my life should feel good!
But the thing is, so many of us aren’t living that way. We’re fixated on what others think we should do. We’re pushing ourselves to meet someone else’s appetites of The Great Mom, The Successful Businesswoman, The Patient Wife, or the Forgiving Friend.
And in all that striving to meet other people’s expectations, we’ve lost ourselves. I’ve lost myself and found myself more time than I care to count.
The Desire Map snapped me out of it and got me back on my own life track, moving towards a future that feels right for me.
And because of the profound impact desire mapping has had on my life, I want you to have this opportunity to reclaim your life (or any parts of it that don’t feel quite right) as well. I have used The Desire Map to snip the last bits of workaholism, rigidity, restlessness, purposelessness, busyness, and critical-crap-type leftovers from my day-to-day life and instead I’m focused on what works for me because I’m clear on how I want to feel. To boil it all down, I’m enjoying the journey instead of just ‘getting there’.
“WHAT IF, FIRST, WE GOT CLEAR ON HOW WE ACTUALLY WANTED TO FEEL IN OUR LIFE, AND THEN SET OUR INTENTIONS?” DANIELLE LAPORTE
When I heard that Danielle was creating a Licensing program so that people like me could teach this material, I was one of the first people waving my arms at the front of the line.
I’m thrilled to announce that I’m an official Desire Map Facilitator (cue the confetti!)
I’m preparing to host an In-Person Workshop, in Dallas, Texas March 14th and 15th 2015.

It’s never too late to live a life that feels good. A life that you consciously choose and design, based on your own cored desired feelings.
“YOU’LL FEEL THE WAY YOU WANT TO FEEL MORE OFTEN THAN NOT. DECISIONS WILL BE EASIER TO MAKE. YOU’’L KNOW WHAT TO SAY “NO, THANK YOU” TO AND WHAT TO SAY “HELL, YES! TO AND I’LL BET YOU’LL COMPLAIN LESS.” THE DESIRE MAP, DANIELLE LAPORTE
I’d like to help you uncover those feelings so you can start building a life that helps you generate them.
