Roll the dice a hundred and one
It’s ultimately not about losing or winning, it’s casting your roll again and again.
That’s where you’ll find yourself breathing the fullest, that’s where you find yourself living out loud.
No matter what happens, get up and roll again…
As Rumi said – “Your life has been a mad gamble.
Make it more so.
You have lost now a hundred times running.
Roll the dice a hundred and one.”
Forward we go,

Don’t stay in one repeat episode
These moments are your life…
Live them in new ways…
Climb out the other side of the bed each morning.
Don’t reach for your phone right away, let your soul come back all the way first.
Notice small things, kneel in the garden, the park, watch the tiny worlds living amongst the grass.
Remember how your heart beats for you each day, take deep breaths in return.
Work in a different room or corner of your home.
If you don’t work or you work for someone else, carry a stone or scrap of paper in your pocket with something valuable written on it.
It can be a quote,
Remember your world is bigger than 4 walls and it calls to you.
Love the miracle of being here, alive, playing yourself for a short time on this magnificent stage.
Love your character.
Write it new lines.
Remember to let it laugh, weep, dance, fall down, get up, love.
Think outside the old lines.
Don’t stay in one repeat episode.
This day isn’t a rehearsal for something ‘better’ up ahead.
Walk into new rooms, make new chapters.
Own your moments, your life is made of these.
Our time here is brief.
Live it wild, w i d e, open and deep.
Keep your heart and humour supple, your discernment sharp and trust your own resilience.
There’s always a way and you’re the best one for the helm.
“Love Many, Trust Few, and Always Paddle Your Own Canoe”
Live out loud.
You are enough, you do enough
Take time for silence, reflection, pondering, emptying, space, stillness.
You don’t have to justify your value with constant productivity.
You are enough, you do enough.
Breathing and rising each day is a gift, take time to lean into that.
And take time off grid whenever you need.
Your wellbeing is crucial…
And answers often find us in those quiet, intimate corners of our lives.
You didn’t come here to fold yourself into a corner
The stress and fatigue live in the hesitation, the what if’s, the fear.
If you wanted a sign, this is it.
Whether entering or leaving, go there with ALL of you.
Back yourself, believe in yourself and do it in motion.
That means feeding yourself, staying hydrated, giving your mind a diet of support.
Walking through a door takes guts, that’s something to respect.
It’s a fierce act to live out loud in your life, to turn the door handle, to take that step.
But it’s what you were born for.
You didn’t come here to fold yourself into a corner.
You came here to become you.
Fear is a misspelling of fuel. Use the energy and move.
Take the step.
Your body knows, your gut knows, your evolution calls your name.
Go there with ALL of you.
Self care is a verb…
Self care is a verb and your wellbeing shouldn’t be optional or a trade for ‘success’
It’s not only possible to align both, it’s imperative and intelligent.
Make choices that respect your health.
Wealth is nothing without it.
You’re not broken, you’re wounded and therein lies your key.
You’re not broken, you’re wounded and therein lies your key.
Being ‘broken’ is a sadly common phrase, too easily picked up and worn like a final statement.
The truth is you’re not broken. You’re wounded. And realising this makes for more self compassion, more recognition of the places that need healing.
And ultimately realising you’re wounded instead of broken, gives you the key to knowing what you need right now, right here, this moment and then the next.
Being wounded offers a trail instead of a dead end.
It offers hope instead of finality.
And most of all it offers validation for the things you have faced and are facing.
When something is ‘broken’ it’s no longer of use, it usually means discarding and finality.
When something is wounded, it warrants care and tending.
It invites understanding, support, hope and patience. Most importantly from yourself to yourself.
The key is in owning the wounded self, it’s in hearing what that self needs and where it needs it most.
In time the wound becomes the key that leads you out.
I see you.
Never give in, look back or give away what you truly believe in…
If someone called your child ugly, a waste of time or hopeless, would you feel embarrassed and walk away and abandon them?
Don’t treat your brain ‘babies’ any less precious…
Don’t believe the illusion of knock backs, rejections or other peoples opinions.
They’re not a sign for you to give up on what you believe in…
It doesn’t matter what others think.
It matters that YOU believe in your dreams and you protect them, help them grow and take their place in the world.
Whenever negative feedback is sent your way, grab the energy from it and transmute it into fierce fuel for your goal.
Never give in, look back or give away what you truly believe in.
Firewood is awesome and that’s what adversity is.
Make sure you burn that sweet load into fuel.
It’s not here to be carried.
It’s yours to pyromaniac.
Remember that and fierce forward!
Dr Lynika Cruz
Playing small offers no favour to this world
Those who work hard and invest in themselves do so to stay in the world stronger and longer for the people they love, and for all those they will inspire and encourage as a result.
Playing small offers no favour to this world.
Do not quit or be guilted about self-investment.
This is your LIFE and legacy at stake and nobody has the right to throw opinionated rocks at you, nor distract you with fear-soaked ‘cotton wool’ limits.
If you’re operating from reason and integrity then you must play all out for yourself.
It’s the only way to authentically reach the platform where you can go all out for others.
The more you make of yourself the more you genuinely have to offer.
“To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve. And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish. Stay reachable. Stay in touch. Don’t isolate.”
― Michael Jordan
Great minds think alike, so rise up like Baruch, Michael and I, and countless others who have held fierce to their life, and don’t EVER allow yourself to be shamed out of creating your greatest self, your legacy.
You were born for this.
There will sometimes be worthy things that pop up and need your attention from time to time. Fakes aren’t one of them. Haters are just fake distractions hoping to become more. Breeze past that trash. You do You. You amazing, worthy, powerful light. Keep Walking.
