I planned for this.
I meditated on it.
I visualized it.
I worked for it.
I spoke it into existence.
I showed up for it.
Today looks the same as the rest of the days that I have been producing the Hearts Unleashed Podcast. *CHECK OUT MY IG STORY @_instagail_ for the most normal shit ever*
No awards ceremony.
I write in my book, Giving Up Giving Up: The Memoir of a Quitter, that I realized how empty all the achievements were after divorce.

Being the lead role or first string doesn't mean shit if you make people around you feel like shit...or if you feel like shit.
Making all the money doesn't buy you happiness (not really).

AND NONE OF IT actually makes you feel complete, whole, or good enough upon attaining these superficial benchmarks.
Today we hit 10k downloads in over 60 countries across the globe and no one's talking about it.
It's not #trending.
There's no headlines.
No celeb status.
Just a 30 year old woman talking life, love, and living her heart unleashed...

The acknowledgment is my own.
Feeling more expressed and free than ever before.
Feeling more powerful than more 'successful' versions of my past self.
Feeling proud, satisfied, grateful, optimistic, and eager.
The real win is not the 10k downloads.

The win is doing work that I love where I want, when I want, how I want, and with whom I want.
And I am glad that 𝐘𝐎𝐔 are one of these people.
