you want to change the world.

I get it. I do too.

I dream of a world where every human is aware of his or her magic, where every human rocks their own unique greatness and where every human loves themselves.

You have a big message. The world needs to hear it.

But, you wonder, “Who am I to shine my light so brightly?”

And I ask, “Who are you to keep your sparkly light covered and hidden?”

It’s not time for you to become someone else. It’s time for you to remember who you are.


You were born with a super shiny sparkly awesome—that powerful spark within you. Your gift to the world. Your purpose. That thing that comes so easily to you.

And then you started human-ing. You heard the messages all around you: “Be normal,” “Don’t be too much,” “Belong,” “You should do this,” “Don’t do that,” “Why can’t you be like all the other kids?”

Your bright light got softer. You made your light little. You wanted to belong.

And you DO belong—to yourself. It’s time to step all the way into your power.

It’s time to embody your light and magic.

It’s time to clear away all the stories that are holding you back.

It’s time to cast off your barbed-wire blanket and be seen.

My super power is SEEING people. I see your awesome and bring out your brilliance so that YOU can SEE yourself and you can sparkle in your own unique way. Because you aren’t like anybody else.

Hiding your light isn’t an option anymore. It’s time to be seen.

The world needs your light. The world needs your magic. The world needs your message. The world needs you to be SparklyAF.

Remember who you are.


It’s time to embody the light and magic that you are.

I used to keep my light small.

In a college swim meet, I was about an inch in front of the girl next to me as we both started into our final lap. I was winning. And as I realized I was winning, I felt a flash of squirminess, of self-doubt, of unworthiness, of fear.

And so I slowed down just a teeny tiny bit. And touched the wall in second place.

I didn’t back off because I was tired. I didn’t back off because my muscles hurt too badly. I didn’t back off because I needed a breath. I backed off because I was terrified of winning.

I wasn’t ready to step into my own greatness and I certainly wasn’t ready to be seen. I was the Queen of hiding in plain sight. I would show up and then stop just short of going all the way in when it mattered.

My own light was the scariest thing I could imagine. 

I remember the day in coaching school when we were invited to discover our inner critics.

Tears poured down my face as I realized that my inner critic had been telling me I wasn’t worthy for years.

 As I transformed my inner critic, I stepped forward into a commitment to sparkle and to help others do the same.

 I am worthy of sparkling. And so are you.

 I am worthy of changing the world. And so are you.

 My message is powerful. And so is yours.

 The world needs us to stand with both feet in our power.

 Are you ready to sparkle? Let’s do this.
