You’ve Gotta Let Yourself Want It

treasureI’ve been working on some goodies for you and I’m so excited to share them with you! All free, all excellent, all straight from the heart of some of my favorite people. But before I share, I just have to tell you about a conversation I had with my #tinyguru, aka my daughter, Lillian.

Last weekend, Lil was invited to a birthday party with a spy theme. It sounded so cool. There was going to be a treasure hunt!

She didn’t want to go, though. My kids LOVE being home on weekend days, staying in their jammies, messing around in the yard, playing with their toys. They are introverts, like their momma. =)

So I reminded her about the treasure hunt.

“I do NOT want to go on a treasure hunt where all you find is an envelope that says ‘You rock’!!”

<Me, stifling laughter>

“I want real treasure, like diamonds and emeralds and rubies!”

Oh honey, I hear you. And while I would love for you to go have an adventure with your friends outside on a beautiful day, my heart also swells at how present you are to your desires, and how you don’t try to talk yourself out of them. GO YOU!

I wish I could wave my magic wand and help the women I talk to own what they want in the same way.

Because here’s what we do as we get older: We start dismissing our desires before they even truly have a chance to take root.

I talked about this a little bit in my You Can’t Even Imagine It post – at some point, we stop allowing ourselves to even entertain the things that we are longing for—things like having more than “enough” money, getting paid handsomely to do work we love, bucking convention to do what’s calling to our heart, prioritizing happiness above all else.

If you’ve read this far, it’s time to own your desire for more—whatever your more may be: money, love, self-love, job satisfaction.

Everything that’s alive is programmed to want fuller expression. It’s true for plants (who come to life containing enough seeds to grow several more generations) and it’s true for humans too.

That’s why I pulled together the More Happiness Now Giveaway Extravaganza. Because I want to make it so easy – and so free, hee hee – for you to bust through any self-imposed barriers and start gathering some (metaphorical) diamonds, emeralds and rubies for yourself.


I asked 10 of my favorite people – all experts in their fields and all with big beautiful hearts and brains – to contribute their best stuff to this giveaway event. I’ve got body nerds, style mavens, supremely insightful coaches and incredible artists—all on board to help you blast any remaining winter blues and love your life.

Go get your goodies now!
