Every single day, in every single moment, we have a choice: To push against what we don’t want or to advocate for what we do want.
It’s a subtle difference, but the emotional cocktail of chemicals you create within your own body is either one of fear and anger or love and hope.
Here’s what I know to be true, having lived through previous strikes, the pandemic, losing both parents, devastating breakups, having lucrative contracts end, booking an amazing role in game-changing original series that never saw the light of day and experiencing thousands of rejections….
No matter what is going on in your 3-D reality, the Universe is always expanding.
Yep. Expansion is happening (even if you can’t perceive it with your eyes, right now).
So in this now moment, you have a choice, to focus on “what is” – which is really past tense, or focus on “what is becoming” which is already here energetically.
So the minute there is something I don’t like or I don’t want, (yes, I allow myself to feel the pain of the loss), but then I’ve made it a daily practice to PIVOT my focus and allow the birthing of what I do want to emerge.
Here’s the thing to remember: clarity comes from chaos.
Think about it. You can’t know what it is you really do want without experiencing (often up close and personal) what you don’t want.
But in the midst of chaos (be it a strike, a pandemic, a break-up, a loss, a rejection). the question most people ask is “What am I going to do?”
But there’s a more important question to ask yourself even BEFORE “What am I going to do?”, that will really change everything for you.

YES! I want you to begin with the 1 question that matters most….
In the above video, I share the 1 question to ask yourself that will shift everything – yes, even during uncertain times.
Ask yourself: “Who am I going to BE?”
Because in deciding who you are going to be…
amidst delays, devastation, disappointments
and demands of others, is what will
shape the outcome of your life –
every single time.
How do you begin? Here are 4 ways to empower yourself, even in the midst of uncertainty:
- Become diligent with your mindset.
First ask, “Who am I going to BE, today?” and then ask “What am I going to do?” This way you are infusing your actions with intention, and becoming the love you want to see in the world.
- Become diligent with your time.
Where are you focusing your precious time? And is that time spent empowering or dis-empowering you? Have you become a rapid reactor (responding to everything in the external world) or a conscious creator (tuning inward first to consciously create your day)?
- Become diligent with your focus.
Are you mindlessly scrolling (often to avoid feeling uncomfortable feelings)? What (and who) are you allowing in your life? Does it all feel good to you? Is it filling up your mind, body and soul in a positive way? Maybe its time to reassess where you are putting your focus and how it’s making you feel.
- Become diligent with your actions.
Yes, what you do, matters. But who you are being while you are doing the thing is what is most important. Because in the midst of uncertainty, when you and I tune into the LOVE that is who we truly are…
You will find things to appreciate.
You will find things to adore.
You will find things to applaud.
(And I hope you begin with yourself)
In fact, pause right now and tell me in the comments below 1 thing you can appreciate, adore and applaud about yourself during this time.
I’ll go first…You are consuming something empowering. You are tuning into the energy of love. You are more resilient than you know. (Ok, that’s 3 things, but I couldn’t help myself.)
I hope this helps guide you to calm your mind, body and spirit today and tune into the love that is who you really are. So often external circumstances pull us out of the true knowing of our greatness, our worthiness and our value.
When you tap back into that knowing (no matter what is going on in the outside world)…
you become a ripple effect of LOVE in the world.
When you become a beacon of love,
especially during uncertain times,
you become unshakeable.
Yes, it’s a daily practice. And we all need reminders + support along the way.

Then I hope you take a step back today before “getting busy doing more,” and ask yourself “Who am I going to be, today?” before you go out and “do” anything.
And then, go be a beacon of love and light in the world.
Because what the world needs now more than ever is people who are beacons of love and light.
The ripple effect you have when you are standing in that space, is vast.
Delays are detours.
Roadblocks are redirects.
Set backs are set ups.
All of it is an opportunity to clarify where you want to go, redefine who you want to be and adjust accordingly.

Now it’s your turn to choose…Go be the love you came here to be and together, let’s raise the collective consciousness of the planet to one of love.
Before you go, drop a comment below and share 1 thing you can appreciate, adore and applaud about yourself during this time (and I will cheer you on too).
Love + Gratitude,
P.S. And yes, we all need daily reminders that we are on the right path. And when uncertainty arises, anchoring yourself in empowering thoughts, surrounding yourself with empowering people and allowing yourself to receive empowering support will be vital to your success, fulfillment and longevity.
