Balance is Bullsh*t 

We live in a world obsessed with the belief that life fulfillment and personal achievement comes from the illusion of balance. Maintaining the lie of perfectionism requires a constant calibration of work and life which keeps us playing small and totally exhausted. You know what you can't be when you're afraid and depleted? A badass! It's time to shout, "balance is bullshit" and move out of a perfection paradigm into an alignment mindset. Together we can blow up the bullshit fear-based system and become the best versions of perfectly imperfect selves.
