Happy New Year from Park City, Utah! I’m having so much fun even though I haven’t gone a day without working at some point in the day… but I also haven’t gone a day without skiing, eating gluten free s’mores with homemade marshmallows or having hot chocolate, so no complaints. I’ve been skiing for 23 years and Park City is by far, my favorite place to ski. This town is magical – everywhere you turn theres a roaring fireplace with hot chocolate being served (makes you want to curl up with a blanket, a good man & a good book), the town is covered in twinkle lights & the people are super laid back, engaging, friendly & down to earth.

So why am I writing a blog post on my phone during a ski break instead of eating lunch?

I HAD to announce….

The third of my 3 holiday giveaways is here!

Since you guys are loving the giveaways , I’m definitely going to keep them coming. It’s the least I can do to express my love & appreciation.

I put a lot of thought into each giveaway that I did this holiday season (& every giveaway that I do). I like to keep them fresh, different, fun, unique and “how-have-I-lived-without-these-products?!” USEFUL.

Every product that I choose to include is something that I not only use, but that I swear by. This one is no exception.

Here’s what I’m giving away…

What a year it has been, FULL of life changing decisions.

This year was by far, the best year of my life but also the most difficult, painful and challenging. Last New Year’s Eve was a day that I will never forget – it was the worst day of my life (more about what happened here). There were many times that I didn’t think I could continue blogging and building my brand, let alone put one (emotional & physical), foot in front of the other. I was being pulled in so many directions, but because of YOU, I kept at it.

Looking back now, as I type this post in the same bed I was completely hopeless & inconsolable in just 365 days ago…

I made it. I’m still standing (and so are YOU), & I am so fearlessly and incredibly grateful.

Even though the lows were seemingly impossible at times, 2016 was very good to Post Male Syndrome. What started as a personal outlet in a time of emotional, financial & spiritual broke as a joke-ness, has turned into something beyond what I could have ever imagined. I am honored to have personally coached many of you this last year, from 19 different countries and counting. I’ve been fortunate enough to speak all over the country, where I’ve gotten to hug some of you in person. I’m finally able to afford it and in 2017, will be introducing video, podcasts & so much more. All because of each and every one of you. So thank YOU for creating this tribe and thank you for being the reason that I never gave up this year.

Not only did you give me a reason everyday to get up and focus on the bigger picture, you gave me the greatest gift of all:

You guys provided me with an avenue OUT of my own suffering by giving me the honor and pleasure of helping you out of your own.

Thank you. I am forever indebted, appreciative and in complete awe of the warriors, survivors & beautiful souls that you all are, all over the world.

So, here it is – a new year. I’ve never really warmed up to the idea of New Year’s resolutions. The whole concept kind of bores me honestly. Although it’s a clean slate and a new calendar, I feel like most of the time, we do it just because everyone else does (& eventually abandon it because of the pressure the entire concept inadvertently imposes). The truth is, you can decide to change at any given moment.

And who wants to play follow the follower? 

Been there, done that. No thx. I’m hungry for something LASTING (& I know you are too or you wouldn’t be reading this).

So instead, for 2017, let’s make INTENTIONS; life changing decisions that we can all decide and ACT upon NOW (instead of hopelessly hanging onto the threads of something that will wear off as quickly as the nostalgia of the holiday).

Let’s use the clean slate of time not as a tool that we’re in need of for resolution actualization, but as a motivational launching pad to propel us into life changing decisions that are executed the moment they are decided.

That moment is now.

Here are 15 Life Changing Decisions to make for 2017 (& beyond)

Holiday blues happen to everyone. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, the holidays have a way of triggering anxiety, stress & the kind of pain contractions that initiate feelings of abandonment, “I’ll-never-get-what-I-want-my-ship-has-sailed” hopelessness, pain from the past, heartbreak & insecurity.

This time of year is magical, yet difficult for so many because the holidays are based upon a foundation of miracles happening through elevated hope, connectivity & belief.

But what if all hope is lost?

Just like starting to date again right after a breakup, if you have unresolved trauma and pain, the holidays will do nothing more than highlight the lack that you feel in your life. This will then lead to feelings of guilt for being the self-imposed, emotional scrooge during a time of year that’s fundamentally geared toward joy and selflessness. Thus, the holiday blues.

Here are 3 ways to kick the holiday blues and turn your hopelessness into hope.

The kind of hope that this time of year is all about.

We’ve all done it. We go on Instagram and what we convince ourselves is going to be just a “quick check,” turns into a full on stalker-zoom-in-screen-shot-wtf-FML jealousy session. We see everyone doing what we wish we could – living their dreams, creating, traveling, making money, going out, dating our exes, getting engaged, looking flawless, procreating, evolving, progressing, doing SOMETHING… while we’re paralyzed in the cement of our wash, rinse, repeat life. We’re too scared to make a move because our existence has become that of distrust, “what if’s,” anger & undetectable self esteem. The anger arises because we’re stagnant and unable to kick the fear. This provides a very fertile ground for a complete lack of self love, which then leads us on a lifetime search for friends & lovers to “complete” us; to see in us what we are unable to see in ourselves. Allowing others to doormat us thus becomes a way of life. We no longer wonder how to be fearless because fearlessness is about as attainable as getting sun tan in the middle of the night.

I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret…

my ENTIRE LIFE I’ve lived in fear.

I didn’t accomplish an echo of what I could have. I was scared sh*tless and wasted so much time convincing myself that a, b & c needed to happen before I could take action.

I was scared of rejection, scared of abandonment, scared of failure, scared of success & happiness (I couldn’t fully trust either; I’d always be waiting for the other shoe to drop), scared of being “found out” (because I lied about everything to compensate for not feeling like I was enough). I was scared of being heard, scared of being judged, scared of speaking up, scared of getting into trouble, scared of getting dumped, scared of creating and scared to bank on a self that I had no like, love or respect for.

And because I was so scared, I could never make a move in my life. Everything was plagued with indecision. The pen was then willingly handed over for others to write my life story (and of course, they’d write whatever fulfilled their personal agenda/needs).

I was the girl that relied on relationsh*ts to make the moves for her.

If I ever had any little inclination of interest, passion or inspiration, the cynical audience in my head would immediately murder it.

I didn’t know how to be fearless because I had developed a codependent relationship with fear.

I was essentially scared of the world doing to me what I had been doing to myself my entire life. I had abandoned, failed, judged, silenced & dumped MYSELF.

Ohhh and did I try. I can’t tell you how hard I tried. I tried so embarrassingly hard to appear fearless and confident; convinced that the attainment of superficial matter would somehow provide it for real.

I was exhausted from emotionally running and obsessed with telling everyone how far I had gone.

Yeah, I may have ran a very far distance, but I was on an emotional treadmill. While I had definitely ran a distance, I hadn’t actually gone anywhere. I was too scared to run on the emotional ROAD because the road was scary – I could fall, the weather conditions could worsen in an instant, the road could be uneven, I may get lost, I may be wearing the wrong clothing, etc. So, I became an emotional treadmill runner – someone that was way too proud to show everyone the distance she had gone and lament about how tired she was (even though she hadn’t reached any real destination).

This gave me a license to remain in a state of fear based paralysis, hopelessness and dissuade myself from ever investigating how to be fearless.

Bottom Line: No matter how hard you try, if fear, anger & a lack of confidence reside within you, you’ll never have a chance at truly realizing and living your dreams. Never.

You’ll just continue to run on that self imposed treadmill until one day when you’re too old to do so anymore, you’ll be so riddled with regret, that dis-ease will manifest within your body from thinking about the life that you robbed yourself of.

The moment that I figured out how to be fearless was the moment that I started building upon my dreams, realizing them and living them in the most gratifying, magnificent & wildest way.

Here’s how to be fearless, confident & start living your dreams.
