it’s about who you are at core

  twitter facebook googleplus pinterest


It’s about who you are at core + what you’re meant to do + how to live the creative life with purpose, impact and a little bit of swagger.

It’s about meaning, self-expression and mastery. It’s about writing your own life story and following your own agenda (and figuring out what that agenda even is in the first place). It’s about rejecting the good girl/bad girl dichotomy bullshit and choosing, instead, to be a badass. It’s about deepening your relationship to yourself, others, the world. It’s about following your intuition and keeping your head. It’s about clarity. It’s about letting go of what you need to let go of so the cool new stuff can enter. It’s about making epic shit. It’s about scaring yourself and doing it anyway.

It’s about your X factor, your joie de vivre, your je ne sais quoi, your animal magnetism. It’s about being as ambitious as you want to be with no apology and honoring your right to dream, be bold, take up space, and declare to the world just who you think you are — and why we should care. It’s about pushing past your ragged edge. It’s about dancing in the streets. It’s about being an introvert, because introverts are awesome. It’s about having crushes on the wrong people. It’s about connecting to your right people. It’s about loving deep and playing hard and knowing when to renew and refresh. It’s about taking the high road even though it drives you nuts. It’s about working your ass off.

It’s about casual chic. It’s about dressing to kill. It’s about falling in love with something bigger than yourself. It’s about shifting the paradigm. It’s about your inner freak, your brand of crazy, your secrets, wounds and Shadow. It’s about seduction. It’s about being seduced. It’s about learning who you are, where to go, and who to take with you. It’s about passing it forward. It’s about saving the world. It’s about saving yourself.

It’s about having some goddamn fun. Thigh-high boots. A fabulous soundtrack. Shaken, not stirred.

Visionaries, misfits, rebels, mavericks, scandalous women + passionate men are the people who transform themselves, others + sometimes the world.

You don’t have to go it alone.

We’re all in it together.

(So may the Force be with us.)

Oh shit, straight to my gut Justine. This is what I believed of myself many years ago. It’s only now as I am 39, that I am giving myself the permission to believe in all my core wild beliefs, I hope I am not to late.

You are brilliant.

@Luke Redd “you’re” (It’s about getting lost in the moment and being a little careless with your grammar but still having the presence of mind to notice your mistake.) ;)

Justine I know others have said it better, but your insight makes so clear the importance of keeping on with stuff. I’ve got a big hill to climb before I even start to see where I’m going next. But no matter. And Rex – of course it’s not too late. It’s only too late when they screw down the lid – not before!

” .. when they screw down the lid”…or light the pyre!

“It’s about rejecting the good girl/bad girl dichotomy bullshit and choosing, instead, to be a badass.” This line may have driven me to Beatles-mania devotion to this blog.

Whenever I come to this site, I leave with strengthened resolve to live vivaciously. Shoot my own film, so to say.

WoooHooooo! Yes! Found your blog via Judy Clement Wall — and am glad I did. I also walk away affirmed and buoyed by this post. Thanks for reminding me we creative freak-flag-flying folks aren’t in this alone.
