Push through fears…. Follow your bliss…. Really! Do it!

Hey darling!

Something happened this past week and I really feel I need to share this.

Ya know fears, right? Yeah, who doesn’t know those things…
So we all know how pushing through them and GOING FOR IT is so important but really who knew that sharing our own story can inspire others to do the same?

Ok, fine, we also know that sharing our story is always impactful and powerful, but how often do we do that? It has been a looooong time I don’t share some personal breakthroughs.

And I used to do that A LOT on this blog.
At some point I stopped.

Maybe the safety of knowing that I had almost no readers made me feel comfortable sharing those stories. Kind of cheating, ya know? No one to read, nothing at stake. 😀

So, last week I decided to share a breakthrough in a private forum. I wanted to take it out of my chest, scream from the “roof tops” how excited I was and release it to the world. Barely I knew all the love notes and support I would receive from peeps. And the recurrent one? “Thank you for sharing! I needed to read this.”

I then decided to take the matter outside! 😀 I am bringing it here outside the forum so if you need a reminder to push through your fears here you have it.

Ready? Let’s do it! I am getting vulnerable and all…..

ABLA forum


And look at all the love notes! Each and every comment made me teary.
You really never know when your story will impact someone else. Jaw-dropping to say the least.

Yeah, the Leonie mentioned is this one. ’cause ya know I love her! 😀
And her Academy is where the forum came from.

Oh, and the artwork! The artwork that started it all! Here is one of them:



Here’s to us cheering each other along the way and celebrating pushing through fears!

Many Smooches,

    This is so strange Raine, you see I’m doing an online Coaching program with Jack Canfield and one of our to-do’s was to find your true purpose. I think I have found mine but I’m not too sure. Now through you I have gotten to know Leonie Dawson and Marie Forleo. And then I read this here and on my facebook page and I’m thinking ok if Raine thinks it’s worth reading give it a try. So I did. I have now downloaded Wild Sister and have started reading Bliss. What I want to say is, it all just fits into my life right now. You and your art, my filo filled with it. Jack, Leonie, Marie and now the Wild Sisters. Thank you for sharing your story and what you do, your helping others I just know it, because your helping me.

    I’m really happy for you! I can imagine how hard it is to do something like that – sometimes I really don’t believe in my writing or my photography but when you get that ‘praise’ the sharing is all worth it!

    Hello, “Great” Raine! I find this post inspiring. We all have self doubt and knowing that someone as talented and wonderful as you has times of self doubt is…well…inspiring. It gives us hope that we can conquer it as well!
    Sending hugs.

    Wonderful post Raine!
    Thank you for sharing this, we all need a little boost when self-doubt is stopping us from doing what our hearts are calling us to do.
    I read on Lucky Bitch you had a super successful product launch, and I want to congratulate you for taking the plunge after 15 years of not creating art and dedicating yourself to it, and pursuing your idea until you finally achieved the first of what I believe will be many great successes.

    I see this post as a great message from the Universe I just needed right now!

    And to think even after all this time of you writing that post, I would read it and it would be just what I needed. Love it!! Thank you for sharing!
