Today, I want to talk about honesty and self-reflection.

There are a lot of us who are too afraid to self-reflect.

Self-reflection is one of the most powerful journeys you can possibly go on—a journey so powerful that you’re guaranteed to make huge changes in your life afterward.

But the changes that you desire may not even be anything that you think.

For me, self-reflection is best when I’ve put space around the things I want to reflect on.

So I decided to go on a trip.

There are two things going on in my life that I really wanted to get away from.  I wanted space to reflect and I wanted to go inside, with no distractions.

I had some offers to go away with some fun people but I chose to go alone and I chose to reflect.

So far, the reflection has been pretty amazing.  I’ve learned a lot about what I want and who I am, but in a very different way.  You see, my life lately has been chaotic to say the least.  Lots of things have been going on, relationships have been changing, and my life has taken different turns.

I really just wanted to go away, kick back, and just get back in touch with me and who I am and how I want to formulate my life.

Life is a gift.  

You know I say that all the time.  Sometimes we misuse that gift and sometimes we don’t even know what we want to do with the gift, but it’s still a gift nonetheless.

I’m going to get personal and share a lot of this journey that I’m on.

I’m going to get a little deeper.

I’m going to give you a few more peeks into my personal life.

I’m going to open up more and I’m going to share my experiences with you because if I’m encouraging you to be more naked, honest, and vulnerable in your personal lives, then I need to lead by example.

A lot of you read the blog but don’t post on the blog—afraid to let go, afraid to say what’s really on your mind.

Now is the time to join us and be honest—be open. 

The journey that I’m on right now is going to be one of absolute truth—100% truth—in everything that I do.

I’m going to live a 100% authentic life.

Next week, starting on Tuesday, May 1st, Obi and I will be going an entire month without telling a single, little, baby, white lie.

Extreme honesty month—going out of our way to be honest and say what’s on our mind.

We’re going to blog often about our progress during this month, and we want you to join us.

I’m going to tell the truth to every single person that’s out there, whether he or she can handle it or not.

Because creating the life that you’ve always wanted starts with being honest with yourself, and then being honest with everyone around you.

So let’s begin.


Extreme honesty.

It’s going to be a very exciting month.
