Say these two words to unlock the door to everything you want

Nooo…. The two words aren’t “it’s here…” But those are good, too, haha.

 

Happy holidays, sexy gals and guys!

Well, the new year is upon us, and as we all hope/dream/plan/prepare, etc. for a brighter future I decided not to answer any questions this week, and instead share something I’ve found helpful in the manifestation of dreams.  (You know, in case anyone is looking to set 2018 on fire… Well, that and the fact that I just published a new book and have been too busy to answer any questions…  But never mind that.)

As those of you who’ve read “The Care and Feeding of Sex Symbols” know, I’ve had some really depressing moments in life – (oy) – and, at times, climbing out of them has been nothing short of miraculous. However, since my goal in life was never to survive, but to thrive, I learned a thing or two about creating the life of your dreams along the way.  And with the help of this 5-minute video, I would like to share with you guys the key ingredient I, and others, have found to unlocking the door to the life of your dreams.

This video features the two words that not only carried me through tough times, but elevated me far, far above them.  In the intended spirit that the video conveys, I said these words in the midst of dark times, and then watched as, slowly but surely, a path paved with inspired actions illuminated before me and led me to my best and most authentic life.

Consequently, these two words are now the first thing I say when I wake up, and the last thing I express at night when I fill out my gratitude journal.  They truly are the gift that keeps on giving.

And I am 100% sure that if you embrace this two-word mantra, you too will find that “what you appreciate, appreciates.”

So, Happy New Year!  And in 2018 may you allow yourself to receive everything your beautiful little heart desires.

How to live a life with no regrets

Dear Megan,

I am 26 years old and embarking on the latter half of my 20’s. I am at a bit of a stand still right now with what I want to do with these last four years of my 20’s. 

What is something you wish you did when you were in your 20’s? 

Thank you in advance for your help!

-In a ‘YOLO’ State of Mind

 


Dear “In a ‘YOLO’ State of Mind,”

Ahhh…  A girl after my own heart.  I remember thinking the very same thing as if it were yesterday, (probably because I’m in my early thirties), and anyone who knows me has heard me say, “You couldn’t pay me to go back to my 20s.”  Why?  Because, like you, in an effort to not squander the decade where total freedom and tons of self-discovery meet and say “Whazzzuuuppp!!!!” I consciously decided to take full advantage of it.  I did everything I wanted to do, and if I liked it, I did it twice.

To be clear, in my 20s I:

Got a college degree, left a cushy job in Hollywood, broke up with the awesome guy I started dating in high school, moved cross-country, went to and dropped out of law school, got married to an amazing guy, got a dog, dived into the performing arts, got divorced, discovered ex-husbands can make the best best-friends, said goodbye to a dog, wrote my first book, had a threesome, traveled to a crap-load of countries, lost all my money, started a business, made a shit ton of money, drove a car through a guy’s house for being a jerk, bought property, bought my first dream car, paid off my student loans, dated a surreal amount of men, including some of the most interesting men in the world, pled guilty in front of a judge, moved cross-country again, learned that volunteer work can be very rewarding, made very little money in the stock market, lost very little money in the stock market, thought I fell in love with a boy overseas two or three times, lost friends, made friends, partied my ass off, and started giving a huge shit about my mental, spiritual, physical, and emotional health.

To be even clearer, my budding “young, wild, and free” lifestyle did not come without its fair share of unexpected, and sometimes undesirable, consequences, as I referenced in “The Dirty Little Secret to Living the Life of Your Dreams.”  But was it all worth it?  Helllllsss yeah.

So, outside of maybe trying to meet Justin Bieber, I can’t really say I have an “I wish I had done ‘x’ in my 20s” regret.  I made it a point to not assume that tomorrow is promised, and about once or twice a year I’d compile a “If I were to die in 2 months, what would I do with my remaining time” list.  Then, I’d look at the list and go about doing whatever the hell was on it.  I took full responsibility for my experience on this earth, and didn’t place my happiness in the future.  I was going to do whatever I wanted to do, or die trying.

So, enjoy this time in your life, “In a YOLO State of Mind.”  Dive deep into exploring your interests, no matter how scattered and pointless they may seem, because it’ll all make sense later.  And unless you bring a life into this world, or take one out, pretty much every other consequence is short-term, so don’t be afraid to take risks.  Be brave, and don’t take life too seriously.  After all, nobody gets out alive.  Best of luck.

Megan 🙂
