Truing Ourselves Up to What Really Matters

Updated: Feb 2

“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for."

Hopi Elders

It’s been a while, I know.

I’ve been taking time to realign myself with my values, my vocation, my vision.

To true myself up to what matters most — to my raison d’être.

4 years ago, I started attending worldwide freedom rallies.

3 years ago, I decided to use my writing skills to share the truth about Covid science.

2 years ago, I put my boots on the ground to write from the Freedom Convoy.

1 year ago, I decided to also use my on-camera and production skills and took on being the Spokesperson for the National Citizens Inquiry here in Canada.

This year, I’m putting my heart on the table.

For the past 29 years, I have been engaged in personal and spiritual growth, writing and coaching along the way, learning and healing and aligning with what it is I’m here to do.

Among those speaking truth to power, standing up for human rights and freedoms, and raising the alarm about authoritarianism, it is often said that we are in a spiritual war.

A war with clear demarcations of good and evil — pro-human and anti-human.

A moment in history, as Dr. Naomi Wolf wrote, “in which obvious right and wrong have not been clearer since 1941.”

Despite this self-described spiritual war, our focus has been mainly on material world tactics.

There’s a lot of talk about what we’re doing, which is of course important and necessary, but not a lot on who we’re being.

Since the Convoy, I’ve been curious about why some people stand up and others don’t.

About what they see, where they find their inspiration, and how they are motivated to keep moving forward in the face of fears.

And mostly about how we can find those resources within ourselves to do the same.

And to keep raising the bar.

I started asking people, and then interviewing them.

Today, I’m officially announcing the launch of my new podcast, Trued Up — conversations to inspire people to “be the change.”

I’ve been excited to share this with you, but then something happened just yesterday.

I woke up with feelings of sadness and low-grade dread.

I didn’t want to promote anything or be seen by anyone, other than people I know and love who know and love me.

I just wanted to go hide out in a cabin and write a novel.

(Or my memoir.)

As I was journaling my way through this morning mood, I realized that I’m not just talking about “aligning with what matters,” I’m doing it. 

I'm being it.

I’m in it.

I’m inside the inquiry of getting out of my own way, fully engaged and pushing outside the boundaries of my own comfort, course correcting and truing myself up to my own integrity and purpose.

And for a few moments, I hit my wall.

This is the challenge and the opportunity of this moment.

To move beyond our self-imposed limits and live life as “a mighty one.”

This is why I started this podcast.

We all have barriers to our full self-expression, our full potential, and the fulfillment of why we’re here.

My goal is to have conversations that inspire us all to rise to our greatest selves at this pivotal point in history.

And so I’m announcing that on February 14th, you can watch the first episode of Trued Up on your favourite podcast platform, or sign up at to watch the whole first season.

Join me as I talk to people we’ve come to admire about how they find the courage and stamina to continue to face the unknown while speaking truth to power.

Please follow Trued Up on Twitter and FaceBook for promos, sneak peaks, updates and episode links.

And please share.

Thank you for being in this conversation with me, and for helping to keep the torch burning brightly.

“This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it what I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”

― George Bernard Shaw

Unless he sees others that are in his situation, the superior man will never be able to see himself as the change he is waiting for.

Perhaps this is the opportunity of our multiple crices. We are being forced to look to ourselves.
