My entire life I’ve only ever done just enough to get by.
That’s a humbling realization.
When I used to race motocross, I would only ride just fast enough to pass the guy in front of me. It’s the reason I rarely won races if I was leading the pack; the only way I would win is if there ...
That macaroni and cheese looks really good.
Those were the words I thought to myself as I stood waiting for the man to take my order.
“So what’ll it be?” he says.
I check in with my intuition.
"I’ll have the brussel sprouts,” I said.
This is a decision I used to struggle with.
If this were 5 years ago Matt I would have been more ...
After spending 10 days in the desert recently I had a breakthrough on how I wanted to BE from now going forth.
Not having a phone, or any other device to connect with the outside world, allowed me to be RIDICULOUSLY present. Not worrying about checking my phone, or what other people were doing, or what was going on in Facebook Land, I was able to connect ...
I already wrote about my Burning Man experience last week. Check it out here. Since I am STILL getting lessons and transformations a week later, I wanted to share some of the gifts I received already.
Be open to receiving
I consider myself a generous person and consistently give to those around me. However, sometimes I have a hard time receiving (coming from a place of UNworthiness). Having never been to this event before I had no idea what to expect or prepare for when it came to ...
10 days off the grid. No phone, no watch, and no contact with anyone other than the people standing in front of me. Complete presence. Epic adventures. Self expression and soul expansion. These were the intentions I had going into Burning Man 2014.
So what the heck is Burning Man?
It’s like trying to describe the color blue to a blind person; sometimes life has to be experienced to be ...
It was the last weekend in May, and I just finished another amazing event with Evolution Room crew. At the end of every Threshold event we take on 30 day challenges to move us forward towards something we want to see manifest in our life.
When it came around for me to make a declaration, I closed my eyes, felt into my heart, and softly said,
“I want to have more fun in my everyday ...
I did. I HATED them.
The way they exposed my hairy feet…
The way people would wear them with jeans…
Even the annoying sound they made when you walked!
Needless to say I had A LOT of judgment around flip flops and people who wore them.
When I would wear them I felt self-conscious, naked even. I had made up my mind that flip flops were ...
When I was younger, I used to hear people talk about “the meaning of life” and what their theory was.
To tell you the truth, it made life seem really heavy.
The weight of our entire existence is a pretty big thought to ponder!
I mean, who REALLY knows why we’re here, and what we’re supposed to do?
When I started my journey of self discovery 4 years ago, I thought about this often; this only lead to more questions and less peace.
When I thought about the meaning of life my ...
It’s 2 pm on a Friday in May; MOST people are at work, counting down the minutes until they can go enjoy happy hour and start their weekend.
But, I am not most people (and I’m guessing if you’re reading this you don't want to be like most people either).
As I stepped onto the yacht I would be on for the next 3 hours, a huge smile came across my face as I realized, I created ...
Continued from part 2.
After finally eating some food,
and having some conversations it was time for bed. 6 hours of solid sleep and I was awake and ready. Now I had heard that you can feel a bit tired, emotionally depleted, and/or even sick the day following a ceremony, but I felt A M A Z I N G !
For the next 6 weeks I let all my learnings integrate as I took in the thoughts and feelings, and turned them into action.
So in no particular order, here are the top 5 takeaways from my ...
