Be A Creative Rebel But Don’t Resist

OK, Kellie Rae, what the hell does that mean? Don’t resist? Isn’t that what rebels do? How can I be a rebel and not resist? Yes, it is a tricky one…

However, I know the kind of badass you are, and you can do this! The truth is, being a rebel isn’t about going against everything and everyone. It’s more about fulfilling your need to create and lead yourself into the life of your dreams. Yeah…that.

Sometimes, we have to say no to things in order to make our hearts sing. That may mean saying yes to other things that make us uncomfortable or put us in a new land. This is where the “no resistance” comes in. You see, we can get all caught up in being happy right where we are in our fluffy bunny slippers, drinking our wine and forget that we told ourselves that we wanted more. We can resist even thinking about that really ginormous dream, let alone get out there and make it happen!

This energy is powerful in that it can help you to believe in yourself and the importance of taking care of you and your desires. And, to keep in balance, remember that just because you want your life to look and feel a certain way doesn’t mean that any other way is wrong or bad. Be at peace with your life and what is happening while you are putting change in place. You will be much happier if you don’t resist what “is” right now. You wouldn’t walk out on a movie or shut off a song on the radio just because it wasn’t at the big, exciting climax…no, you enjoy the scenes and notes along the way.


Rebel against staying comfortable for too long. Rebel against anything or anyone who tells you don’t deserve to be or do something. Rebel against resisting yourself and that better life you want.


Don’t resist your dreams. Don’t resist yourself and who you truly are. Don’t resist the state of things right now, it has nothing to do with your potential or how things will be tomorrow.

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a business transformer for badass women by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre and have another on its way, co-authored an international best seller, and have finally pushed my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie “Ignite Your Ass” Rae

    Kellie Rae – good analogy with the cat getting more pressured and tightened up as it fought. I agree, we do that to ourselves. I told a mastermind friend the other day that he should consider stepping back and focus on just 2 of his 8 items on his to-do list (just for one project he’s doing). We talked it through and he got it down to 4 for the next month plus he’s going to seek outside help on one of them. I could hear in his voice that he was stressed and I told him I worried he’d lose the fun out of what he was doing. That made him pause. He’s like an Energizer Bunny with new ideas all the time to implement but it’s affecting his family life. Oh – he’s not yet 30, he’s still learning that slow down time is important. (smile)

      Thanks for sharing that, Virginia. You really have to decide what you want to get out of your life and do the things that will deliver it. One thing about getting older is you do get the wisdom from hindsight. 🙂
