In any case, I both know the pain that this gal is in AND gave her the tough-love-smack-down. Want a tough love smack down of your own? Have a burning question? Ask me.

If you feel like you’re expanding out to the whole world, feeling fully on purpose, taking it up a level, reaching out further and then, contracting to that squeezing, tight space of overwhelm when we run out of energy and resources – I’m with you.
