The difference between easy and ease


On July 18th I opened a new location of my spa in Boulder Colorado. I’m super excited about it and if you’re in the area I would love for you to stop by and see it – it’s actually very beautiful.


Recently I’ve noticed a lot of talk about manifesting your reality and how easy it is. How in just 5 minutes a day you can turn your idea into a multi-million dollar business! Or how I went from $0 to $3.6 million in 6 months – pay now and find out my secrets!

Honestly, I’ve never known anyone that has a truly thriving business, or even an amazing relationship, that would say it was easy. Getting what you want takes work. And work isn’t bad – working can feel good and feel full of ease. Hard work can give you a sense of satisfaction and joy even. But there is a huge difference between easy and ease.

Opening our new location has not been easy. In fact it has been full of challenges. I have cried lots of tears. And yet still, there has been a sense of ease in a lot of the moments. Ease when I think of my purpose and how this aligns with that. Ease when my teams’ eyes sparkle when we talk about our mission.

Ease comes from alignment. Alignment with what it is that you truly want, what you believe in, and what you’re passionate about.

Easy is the road well traveled, the avoided challenge, the missed opportunity.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t need it to be easy, my heart and soul are content when I tap into ease.

So, how do you know if a challenging situation is worth pushing through? If it’s just a matter of the bit of hard work you need to exert to make it happen or if it’s truly not your path?

Ask yourself these three questions:

  1. If at the end of my life I didn’t do this, would I wish I had?
  2. Does this align with my purpose for my life and will it serve the world?
  3. If I take 30 minutes to drop into this experience, can I feel the passion for this project under the current feeling of challenge?

These questions will guide you to your answer. Don’t allow a little hard work to stop you from reaching your dreams. – Tweet it.

I wish you ease.

  • Awesome. Love the energy and expansion.

    Been messing with these thoughts in my head for some time. Ease can also be comfort–comfort can keep us from attaining our true passion and expression. So sometimes, it should not be easy 🙂
