TLS #173 – My birthday wishes for biz owners, parents, college students & more


On Saturday I turn 32. And as I’ve reflected on this past year, I thought it would be fun to share my birthday wishes for you – regardless of if it’s close your birthday right now or not.

I’m sharing my wishes for those who are business owners, parents, college students, people who want to leave their jobs, people going through breakups, anyone who is feeling lonely, and more.

My hope is that something shared in this episode connects with you and uplifts you in some way – big or small. : )

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to hear a bit of encouragement in any stage in their lives.








  • For business owners, how dropping imposed deadlines can allow flow to take you from one thing to the next and release the grip you have on deadlines.

  • For those people who dislike their current jobs, I wish you can find a value that you can practice in your current job everyday until your intuition leads you to the next job.

  • For parents with young children, please don’t place your kids in a position to live your values, but rather help them uncover their own values. 

  • For parents with older children, encourage and help them look within themselves to find the answers they are seeking and support them as they make choices.

  • To the college students, my wish is that you start to bring practices of mindfulness into your life and begin to look into yourself and tapping into your intuition.

  • For those going through a breakup, I wish you can find a way to find alignment from within instead of finding alignment within the relationship.

  • For those in the dating arena, remember to find alignment first, then maintain it from within yourself (rather than from the relationship).

  • For those who feels things have been taken away, I wish you can get grounded within yourself and find your internal alignment. 

  • For those who are unsure what to do next, please try to find a way to flow in the meantime with what is showing up in your life.

  • For those of you that are afraid to make a mistake, don’t worry about it – it’s all going to work out.

  • For those who have made the wrong choice, give yourself that empathy and compassion and return to your intuition and follow it’s advice for you.

  • For those of you feeling lonely, you’re not alone. When you find a way to tap into your intuition, you’ll find the guidance you need so you will connect with the part of yourself that is not lonely.

  • Another way to combat loneliness is to connect and learn from teachers that you admire. 

  • For those feeling overwhelmed, try taking things off your plate, or in other words, lighten your load.

  • For those who need a “life plan”, take a break and relax, see what’s in front of you, and take one step at a time – let the knowing guide you.

  • For those who worry a lot, give yourself compassion and empathy for it, so you can loosen it’s hold on you.

  • For those who feel envy in social media, it’s not about what you see or hear, but it’s about how aligned you feel inside.

  • For those facing negativity, don’t let their external mis-alignments affect your own internal alignment.

    Hi Jess! Happy birthday for last week – this episode was such a pleasure and truly filled my heart with sparkle. I particularly wanted to reach out and thank you for all of your work around intuition – twice this year, I’ve considered your advice, for both trusting my intuition to sell my business and just recently (yesterday in fact) to delete all forms of social media (in my case – Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat) When you hand over the resistance to your intuition, you’re right – everything will just FLOW. Cannot wait for your book, seriously so ready for it! BIG LOVE x
