DAY 2: January 2, 2012: IT TAKES A KULA

One of the things that I find so inspiring and challenging about my LiveBig365 commitment is that I’m being led by my heart. I don’t set out at the beginning of the day with a list of BIG choices. I wait to see what is revealed to me.


This kind of patient waiting has never been my style. In my own yoga practice, especially when it is power vinyasa, I am usually anticipating the next pose. In other words, staying in the present moment and trusting the process is not my forte. I have to really work at it, and I falter often.

Now conquering the reasons why I am this way is going to be a challenge for another day as I am happy to report that in the midst of the business of today, I was presented with such an obvious and expansive BIG choice that I took it, acted on it and opened up my life to it.

Today I expanded the community that will uphold me through this year in a really BIG way.  My Kula, my community of the hear,t now includes the support of Debbie Phillips and Jamie Eslinger of Women on Fire.  Two women who have their own stories of growth and transformation who have committed their lives to serving others through their own inspiring examples.

I could not be in better company.

To be upheld on my journey by such awesome women, to be able to see how important those relationships are for me is such a huge step. I realize now that to be able to live the Big Life that I am working toward, every single day, I must be in relationship with strong people who have walked this path before me, are willing to support me during this journey and truly have my best interest at heart.

And it is this example that helps me to lay the foundation to be the same in my own life in relationship with others…..

I believe that kind of awareness can only come from the heart.

So, welcome to the Kula Debbie and Jamie. I’m so loving that you are here…….

And thank you from the bottom to the top of my heart!

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
