Action Cures Fear

Fear is a bitch. It hangs out in the back of your mind making up Fake News that causes you to doubt yourself, to imagine the worst, and hold yourself back from accomplishing epic shit.

It never goes away, it just takes on different voices.

Acknowledge the fear, thank it for worrying about you, and move forward anyway.

Acting despite the fear lessens and weakens the fear over time.

You eventually see that the fear is unsubstantiated. Because on the other side of action you find none of the terrible things that you imagined, only awesomeness.

You have to go where you haven’t been to discover anything new.

Quality over quantity.

You believe in quality over quantity.

You prefer the silence of the forest to the noise of the city.

You’d rather be traveling than shopping.

Your purchases and choices are a reflection of you, and you want to create a home & wardrobe that’s a reflection of who you are.

I feel you.

the 33rd year.

I’m 33 today. And it’s been 4 years since I went full time Artist. It seems like it’s been even longer. My brain feels like it’s been through 10 years of it already. But in a good way.

I mean, every moment in our lives has led us to this point.

And there is so much clarity in hindsight. I wouldn’t change a minute of it.

The last 4 years have been a deep-dive into the knowledge banks of so many before me – on entrepreneurship, on introspection, on manifestation, on healing, on soul growth, on finances, on our natural connection to every thing. While I’m grateful for my formal education, this experience has taught me far more.

I go to bed every night excited to wake up the next morning and do it all again.

33 is an important year for me. The end of a cycle, the beginning of a cycle, a time of synchronicity and of alignment. It’s time for the next phase, and oh man am I ready. I’ve been preparing for this my whole life.

As I’ve discussed in the past, my happiness continues to grow exponentially. There are always going to be bumps in the road; some more traumatic and difficult than others. But it’s how you handle them that determines where you go next. Choosing to learn, grow and squeeze every drop of wisdom from every experience is how you soar.

Action cures fear. And beyond fear lies your wildest fucking dreams.

Beyond fear lies the field of no fucks.

Frolic. Frolic through the field, my love.

Love thyself.

We MUST take care of ourselves.

Nurture ourselves.

LISTEN to ourselves, to what our mind and body needs.

Establish a ritual of self-care.

This can look a million different ways. But carve out the time in your day, even if it’s just 15 minutes.

Read a book, drink some tea, meditate, cast a spell, set some intentions, cuddle your pet, whatever does it for you.

Whatever gets you in the zone of calm, the zone of joy.

Doing it first thing in the morning is ideal for me, because it sets the tone for my whole day.

But that might not work for you. Figure out what will.

What matters is that you do it.

Taking care of yourself will allow you to put your best self into the world.

And that is what the world needs.

Your BEST self.

<3

mean girl

We all have her.

Sitting in the back of your mind, talking shit.

Telling you you aren’t good enough, not talented enough, just not enough in general.

Sometimes she’s not as much mean, as she is scared.

But action cures fear.

Trust me.

Sometimes you might think your life is going TOO well.

How could it possibly be this awesome all the time?

Something bad has to happen eventually, right?

That’s that scared, mean girl talking.

Shut that shit down.

Life CAN be awesome all the time.

It IS possible.

Of course, bad things, tragic things…they’re going to happen.

It’s part of life.

And that is how we learn, how we strengthen.

But you mustn’t LIVE in a place of anticipating the bad.

Doing so will just attract the bad.

Life is awesome. You’re awesome.

Life is abundant. You’re abundant.

Focus on all the good and amazing shit in your life and more good and amazing shit will flow easily to you.

I promise <3

savor this moment

You know those moments when you feel like you’re on top of the world?

When everything is amazing, and you can’t believe how abundant and incredible your life is?

When you realize that your current surroundings and circumstances are (almost) exactly what you have been fantasizing about for years, if not better?

(Hint: That is manifestation at work)

It’s an amazing feeling, no question.

So what I need you to do when you have one of those moments, is to WRITE IT DOWN.

Write down how awesome everything is. How abundant your life is.

Because there are going to be those moments when you feel like shit.

When you feel like nothing is going right.

When you’re just having a sad, shitty, doomy gloomy moment.

Write it down so you can tap into that energy again, and remember how epic your life is.

How grateful you are for everything and everyone around you.

Because that is the vibration that will keep all that good shit coming.

Welcome to Bound!

I’m Emily – an artist, writer and hardcore introvert with an overly expressive face.

I also swear sometimes. Just a heads up.

I’m living the dream. My dream.

By that I mean, making my own schedule and doing what I love every single day.

But I didn’t get here overnight.

It was (and is) a long and windy road full of struggle, fear, doubt, anxiety and everything else that comes with entrepreneurship.

And I can’t tell you how WORTH IT the struggle is.

I want to inspire and guide you to live your dream, whatever your dream might look like.

 

To inspire you to live as the best version of yourself.

To maximize your potential.

I believe that to reach maximum potential you have to find… your Thing.

The thing that makes you come alive.

Your Thing is something you’ve always known.

 

Something that has been there since the beginning.

Something that you’ve never been able to ignore.

Something you’re bound to.

bound

\’bau’nd\

adjective

: inseparably connected with

Once we figure out that the thing is the thing…well,

…pursuing it means you’re tapping into who nature intended you to be.

 

And that is when we truly shine.

That is when we change the world.

 

Because the more effort we put in to being our highest selves, the better the world is.

I want to help you get from here to there.

 

I want to talk about your dreams, your goals, your calling.

I want to talk about the big picture, the struggles, the hardcore doubt and fear that can cripple your progress.

And I want to talk about how to overcome it.

I’ll share inspiration, stories, and lessons I learned the hard way.

I’ll tell you your potential is only as limited as you believe it is.

I’ll give you actionable steps to living an awesome and aligned life.

 

A life that looks exactly like you want it to.

A life that looks like it’s meant to.

 

Let’s do this.

Your precious minutes are flying by, what are you waiting for?
