How To Let Go


The grass is finally starting to turn green here in Montana which means that not only is it lawn mowing season (I’ll take that over shoveling any day), but it also means that it’s spring! And so naturally a lot of the collective conversation going on is all about releasing the stagnation in our lives (winter) and birthing ourselves anew (detox) for spring.

And this has me thinking about letting go. Letting go of the things holding us back. The stagnation of winter and life in general.

We tend to think that letting go is something that happens all of a sudden. An act you do once and then your life is different. A line in the sand that you cross and everything on the other side of it miraculously and suddenly disappears. Things you’ve probably held onto for years.

But I’ve found that letting go is not that simple. It’s not an act. It doesn’t just happen once. But rather it’s an intention you set and have to remind yourself of over and over again when you find yourself jumping back over the line to the place where you just were. An intention to the focus not just on the thing you’re letting go of, but also on what you hope to gain for your own life from doing it. And when you focus there…the letting go happens more easily. Or rather, the attachment lessens. This happened for me recently.

I get a daily mantra from my Louise Hay calendar and this one has been helping me a lot lately: “My heart forgives and let’s go. Inner peace is my goal.”

How nice is this? “Inner peace is my goal.”

Because if you look at your life and the things that are weighing heavy on your heart, wouldn’t it be so nice to feel peaceful about them instead? We can’t usually change what happens in our life, but we can strive for peace around it all.

So I’ve been trying this. I say this ANYTIME I start to obsess about things that are hurtful, beyond my control, from my past, and worries about the future.

What I love about it is that I don’t necessarily have to know “how” to forgive or let go, I just have to know I want to and I keep reminding myself of that. And that’s enough and I feel less bothered by all the things on my mind, which is a huge win in my book.

Maybe you’d like to try it too?

So here’s my question to you…

What in your life do you feel you’ve been hanging onto? What is something you’ve wanted or needed to “let go” of? What is one small thing you can do today to intend that you have peace around this?

Write it down on a piece of paper and remind yourself you wrote it and let that be enough.



Ps Here are two ways to take that even further:

  1. Meditate for 3-20 minutes repeating the mantra “my heart forgives and let’s go. Inner peace is my goal”
  2. Google “Brad Yates I can’t let it go!” and do his tapping video. It’s so great!

P.p.s I’ve been working on “letting go” of the ways in which I’m mean to myself and it has been so incredibly helpful. I’ll be sharing more about that soon. Make sure you’re on my list to be the first to know about it. <3

New Years Resolutions suck, but this is awesome


I can’t believe it’s already almost 2016! It feels like just yesterday that I was house-sitting for my friend Molly, waking up in her sun-filled house and writing in my journal about my previous year and what I intended for the following year. I took this pic right as I was writing in my journal and it seems to be pretty indicative of my year…lots of both light and dark moments. It also marked a huge transformation that was coming. You can read all about it here.

light to dark

My life had recently changed SO much and I wasn’t really sure what I wanted for the upcoming year, and so it’s no surprise that the year took on a life of its own!

I wasn’t super intentional. I was just in a “let’s see what happens” mode. And so that’s how the year greeted me.

So this year, I wanted to be a bit more intentional. I wanted to really reflect on 2015, and be intentional about 2016. And not in a “let’s put a million things on my ‘resolution/to-do list’ way.” But in a way that will help me really sink in, in a grounded solid way, to the way I want to FEEL this year, the things I want to accomplish, and the person I need to be in order for that to happen.

It was so much fun that I had to share it with you all. So I created this super fun and free worksheet. I hope you enjoy it!

In this worksheet you will…

  1. Reflect on your accomplishments, changes, lessons, game changing moments, and things you want to let go of from 2015
  2. Think ahead to 2016 and reflect on your desires, your goals, your experiences and how you want to feel in 2016 and who you need to be in order to do that
  3. Set strong intentions for your year to come

All you need to do is let me know where I should send it. So make sure you put your name and email in the box below and your super fun and free worksheet will be on it’s way.

I hope you are enjoying the last few weeks of 2015 and not working tooooo hard. Also…make sure you squeeze some loved ones and drink lots of tea or hot cocoa. Dr’s orders.

Cheers to a year full of happiness and Wildhearting!

My Creative Sabbatical (and why I’ve been gone all year)


“Why don’t you ever write about us,” he said in a text message to me the other night.

And in that moment, an entire year’s worth of complex, complicated feelings flooded to the surface. I know you guys are used to hearing from me A LOT more than you have this year. A lot of you have been here since my very first blog post in January of 2010. And have been with me through my last major breakup and all the little heartbreaks along the way.

You’ve come to Costa Rica with me. Gotten into an RV with me for the first time and saw the country. You might have watched as my friend Natalie and I drove across the country doing random acts of kindness and filmed the experience as webisodes as Girls Gone Moto or followed along as the Travel Channel “pimped our RV ride”, and went with me on my solo road trip, culminating in my very first hunting trip.

You cried along with me when I moved to Montana and bought my very first pair of red and tan fuzzy Sorel winter boots. You followed me to the bar to go country dancing and went with me on the back of a flatbed truck to play bass with my new country band. You went to festivals and concerts with me. Climbed the mountain tops in Montana with me. You’ve gone on motorcycle rides with me. You’ve seen me create The Wildheart Revolution (my private coaching and lifestyle tribe), create custom jewelry, sell out Montana retreats. You’ve seen me sing songs in my bedroom and be guests on Podcasts.

So why is it that there is an entire year missing in our lives together? Why have I been so quiet?

Today..I hope to shed some light on everything and let you know what I’ve been up to this year, and what’s to come.  

In the beginning of being a coach, I was also going through a ton of personal transitions. Writing about them on my blog was a form of therapy for myself. I’d learn stuff, and then share it. Not paying a ton of attention to “growing my business.” To me, the growth always happened organically. It seemed to be a result of just living my life, and sharing that with everyone. I seemed to keep getting clients and I was able to make enough to live the life I wanted to live.

And then something shifted. I wanted my business to “GROW.” I had a vision that came to me in a lightning moment, winter in 2012-13. The words Wildheart Revolution flashed through my mind and I knew that something big was wanting to happen. I also knew that I wanted there to be amazing and affordable coaching available to like-minded and dynamic people in a way that hadn’t ever been done before. And so Wildheart was born. It happened slowly at first, and then snowballed very quickly.

In 2013-14, my business grew a lot and really fast. So much so that I couldn’t keep up with it. I scrambled to hire the right people to stay on top of everything with all the major changes happening. I didn’t do a great job. And found myself completely overworked and overwhelmed.

I had a big big vision for Wildheart, I wanted to help facilitate big changes, but most of the time I felt stressed with the amount of work I was doing alone. So much so that the joy and vision of it started to wane. My life stopped being about adventure and fun and sharing my stories and creating and growing the Revolution, and started being about 17 hour days, launch schedules, hiring/firing, troubleshooting payment malfunctions, and holding it all together.

And in that moment, the business that I had created so that I could be creative, and help inspire change within people, became the box that I had previously rebelled against, and I was just…TIRED.

Tired of the hustle. Tired of the game. Tired of being solely responsible for everything.

“If this is what having an empire looks like, I don’t think I want  it” I thought to myself.

And found myself just about completely unable to keep it going. Or rather…unwilling to continue growing it in the way I had. I questioned…EVERYTHING…

“Why am I doing this?”

“Is this creating the kind of impact I want to create?”

“Do I even like being a business owner?”

“Why do I have these money goals? Are they even important to me? And if so…why?”

“Do I want to be spending my time doing all of this?”

“Is it all worth it if my relationships are falling by the wayside?”

“Does having all this money even matter?”

“What are my true priorities in my life as a whole?”

As these questions were forming, so was a new relationship. In 2014 I struck up a relationship with an old flame from college and decided last December to give it a go and see what could happen for us.

We’ve spent the year, learning, growing, giggling, cuddling, loving and learning how to be in a relationship with each other. My focus went from solely myself, my adventures, and my business, to a new relationship, in a new place, and with an entirely new situation since he has three kids, a huge family, and is very involved in his community.

My life literally could not have looked more different this past year than it did any of the ones previous to it. And in the meantime with that, I was growing and shifting. Wanting to be a bit more private, not just because there were now kids involved, but because I wasn’t sure I wanted to be “Sally Hope, Renegade Life Coach, and Leader of the Wildheart Revolution,” as much as I just wanted to be Sally Hope. A person. A person who was discovering, at this point in time, what she wants in life and what’s important to her.

I felt my role shifting. I felt my desires shifting. Nothing that was known before was known now. Everything was up for grabs, including whether or not I even wanted to have a business.

And within these thoughts and changes, my life started to feel private to us. And since so much was shifting in my business and my life, and my emotions, and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to share, I shared almost nothing.

Not because I didn’t want you to know, but mostly because I wasn’t really sure how I felt. I had so many complex emotions swirling inside. Questioning my business was like questioning myself and my self-worth.

“If I’m not Sally Hope, Leader of the Wildheart Revolution, then who am I?”

“If I’m not doing something really cool and exciting, what do I have to offer people?”

“If I’m not building an amazing business, what am I going to talk to my friends about?”

It’s kind of hard to explain, but questioning these things was not just like questioning whether or not I want to eat dairy in my diet, but more like it was questioning everything I thought to be true about myself, and my world.

I am and always have been an ambitious person with very big visions, but I started to question why I wanted the things I thought I wanted. Why I had the money goals I had. Why I had the business goals I had. Why it mattered. Were those visions still “mine”?

I just want to live my life and figure it out. And so that’s what I’ve been doing this year. I’ve been questioning all my thoughts and desires. I’ve been evaluating all the people and things in my life and deciding whether or not they are fulfilling. I’ve been falling in love, not only with my guy, but with his amazing kids and family. I’ve been having a lot of Netflix nights. I’ve been getting better at cooking. I’ve been hiking. I’ve been changing. My heart has been expanding. I’ve been challenged.

I’ve been getting to know myself and my new life and here’s what I’ve discovered: Creativity is really important. Business is amazing but it’s not everything. Online life is great, but it will never replace sitting around the fireplace with your loved ones. You can create it however you want it, but sometimes you have to rediscover how you want it, and that’s ok. Sometimes you’ll change your mind, and that’s ok. I adore Wildheart. 
And given all these discoveries, here’s what I’ve decided for myself…

I’ve decided to go on a bit of a creative/business sabbatical. I recently shut the doors to the Wildheart Revolution private coaching community, and only take on one on one clients every once in awhile so that I can have some time and space to rediscover what I truly want to create next. I will only be doing things that feel creative, fulfilling and fun. I am not really sure what’s next, but I’m dedicating my sabbatical time to taking the pressure off of figuring it out.

I will still be posting publicly and will still be keeping in touch with you during this exploratory time. I’m not sure exactly what that will look like, but since this all started with sharing life and creative stories, I imagine that’s what I’ll be doing this year too. I will still be taking you all along for the ride.

So far, just making this decision has been amazing. I’ve had doubts and fears. A LOT. But overall I’m excited. I’m excited to go back to basics. I’m excited to write to you guys because it’s my favorite thing to do, not because doing so is part of my marketing plan. I’m excited with all the creative ideas that are bubbling up since I decided to take my sabbatical.

And even though I’m not sure what will come out of this pause and creative time, I did want to share with you some of the things I’ve been thinking about that might make their way into your inboxes:

  1. Kundalini Yoga – this powerful and transformative style of yoga has changed my life. I’m getting my teacher training certification this year. I’m spending the next seven months in training. YAY!
  2. The Wildheart L.O.V.E. Technique. I created this technique a few years ago that helps people handle and get rid of really really tough emotions. I would like to develop and expand on this.
  3. An idea I’m working on: Sacred Exploration Time (S.E.T.) a practice in which you give yourself time and space to discover what you truly want (I’m currently in a SET time right now)
  4. Creativity. Writing. Telling stories. Sharing for the sake of sharing.

If you are still reading…thank you. I know this is a bit long winded, but that’s sort of how I roll. :) Thank you for being a part of this journey. Thank you for still being here. Thank you for being a part of this Wild Ride.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions and please let me know if you’ve experienced anything similar. Have you ever been going down one path and then realized you’re not sure why you’re still walking? Have you ever changed your mind and had to re-evaluate everything? If so…I want to hear about it.

Also…in my “time off” I got super inspired to create a fun worksheet for the New Year. Look for that in your inbox next week.

Happy Friday Dear Friends,


Why you’re not sticking to your New Years Resolutions (and the four ways to turn it around right now)

blog 1.27 introOk so I want to out myself right now.

I think New Years Resolutions are stupid. (click to tweet)

Yeah, I said it.

There is so much attention and energy put around the idea that just because the calendar changes one number, that this is all of a sudden a “new year and a new you.”

When I see that, I ask myself…WHY?

Why on Earth is it a new me just because one more day has passed??

What have I actually done to EARN the title of a “new me” and do I even really know what that means for myself?

And not only that, what are the implications of this massive list of resolutions I’ve decided I’m going to measure my success this year by?

What I’ve come to is that the language and reasoning we use for New Years is the problem, but the intentions behind all of it is AWESOME.

Because behind the bells and whistles and “new year new you!” quips, lies something really important…

That is…setting a specific intention for what we want in our lives, staying focused on and motivated around those goals, and having a clear measuring stick to know whether or not we got there.

Now THAT is something I can get behind.

But…what happens when New Years rolls around? We all come up with this mega list of things we want, no actual plan on how to get it, and then we forget about it all together within a couple weeks and start eating cookie dough right out of the jar again (or is that just me??)

So…I thought I’d come up with a super fun list of the ways to ACTUALLY stick to your New Years intentions, before January is over and they are all long gone.

These are simple and easy to do and I promise that if you try them, you will notice some major changes in your life.

Here goes:

1) Pick one thing at a time and focus on that (aka…make a decision)

The way to get anything done, is to have FOCUS. And the way to have focus, is to only put things on your list that are absolutely imperative and that are things you actually truly want. The way to get going is to make the decision (draw the line in the sand) to do it.

This reminds me of one of my favorite quotes: “Do or do not. There is no try” – Yoda

So…the way to do this is cut almost everything out of your “resolutions” list. As far as “things” you want…limit it to three or less. And only do one at a time.

(Caveat…if one of your things is like “do cardio three days a week” you can obviously do this while you’re simultaneously writing copy for your website. Use your discernment here. The name of the game is to be focused)

2) Focus on how you want to FEEL

In our worlds, we focus A LOT on doing. We make goals that we can cross off our lists. But have you ever had a situation where you “did” everything you set out to do, but you still aren’t satisfied?

That’s because your focus has been on the external, instead of how you want to feel. When your compass is based on desires and feelings, you always know where to turn when making a decision.

So for example, if you decide you want to feel “FREE” this year, then anytime you have to make a decision, you just ask yourself “does this make me feel free or not?”

Use that as your compass when making and sticking to your list.

3) Check in with yourself periodically

Focus and desires are only part of the equation. Who cares if you make a goal and draw a line in the sand if you have no way of knowing if you’re actually getting there?

This one is all about breaking your “list” up into smaller increments throughout the year. So, give yourself quarterly measurable and tangible goals, and check in with yourself every three months to see where you’re at.

So…right now you’re in January. What do you want to accomplish and feel by the time April comes around?

Write that down on paper and mark it on your calendar. Right now. I’m serious. Go do that right now.

(did you do it? I’m watching)

4) Get help and accountability

This is my favorite one! Because nothing happens in a vacuum. Meaning…when you’re by yourself coming up with these goals, it doesn’t actually matter if you do them because no one is holding you accountable.

Another year can go by and you can be like “oh well…I didn’t write that book but…whatever.” And it’s easy to let yourself off the hook.

That’s why people tend to get more done when they’re in school, or if they have a boss breathing down their neck. A lot of people thrive with a deadline or when they have to “turn something in.”

I found this to be the most challenging part of personal development (= making my life more awesomer) and also the most challenging part of having my own business. Which is…no one is counting on me to follow through. No one is making me “turn in” anything. So whatever I want, is ALL up to me. And when it’s up to me, it’s easy to just slough off responsibility and stay in my pattern of not doing jack shit towards the things I want.

BUT…you can build in an infrastructure for yourself that is in service of keeping you on the hook, even if you don’t have a boss breathing down your neck.

You do that by hiring a coach, finding an accountability tribe, or a mastermind group. Maybe you have a good friend that you make an agreement with to help keep you on the hook.

And maybe…you join the Wildheart Revolution, which is ALL about this exact thing.

It’s about not only giving you the tools and lessons (like this one) that will help you move forward towards your goals and dreams in a lasting and final way, but we also have a team of 3 top notch, certified coaches there to coach you FIVE DAYS A WEEK when you’re feeling stuck, PLUS a group of dynamic people, just like you, to help keep you on track.

AND, we have a weekly accountability post, so really, it’s a no brainer.

The doors for Wildheart just re-opened for the first time in months and will only be open until THIS FRIDAY, so make sure you hop on into the coolest party on the internet.

Either way…I hope you enjoyed this list of ways to stay on track with your Resolutions. I truly believe that ANYTHING is possible. With enough, clarity, focus, determination and tenacity, and heart, we can all create miracles.

And as you know, I love hearing from you. In the comments below…do tell me…what is your biggest goal for yourself this year? And which of these tools are you going to use to make sure it happens?

Cheers to an awesome and fulfilling and fun 2015. And I hope to get to spend it with you inside the Wildheart Revolution.

Love and lots of goals,

Her Whole Life Is Different Now (Wildheart Case Study)

It’s me, Sally, again.

You might have noticed I’ve been writing to you a lot lately, and I want you to know a couple of things.

One is that I won’t be posting quite as often after this week. (I know, you’ll miss me, right? Hehe. ;))

And the other is that the REASON I keep popping up isn’t because I want to bug you or force you to do anything weird like join a group you’re totally not into.

I just know that life is busy, and sometimes opportunities come along and we miss them because we go, “Oh this looks cool!” and then think, “I’ll decide later.”


I’ve done it a million times myself.

But the other day I was talking to a brilliant Wildheart, Devon Combs, and she mentioned just a few of the amazing things she’s gotten out of being a Wildheart…

And because I’m SO excited about Devon’s success (and want everyone to experience stuff like this!) I thought I’d share her specific case study with you, because it’s pretty darn exciting, and is EXACTLY why Wildheart exists.

I’ll let Devon take it from here:

“When I started Wildheart, I was stuck in a real estate career and living in the city, both things that were draining me energetically.”

“Through the Wildheart group and Sally’s coaching, I “took the leap” and left real estate to pursue my dream of living on a horse ranch and pursuing my Beyond the Arena business full time.

“I’m living my dream and I feel fortunate that I get to continue to plug into the Wildheart community for ongoing support, encouragement and tips as I continue to expand my business and become a better entrepreneur.

“Thanks to Wildheart, I’m literally living life on my own terms and I’ve never felt more free, personally and professionally.”


Wow, I don’t know about you, but I find that pretty freakin’ amazing!

Devon went from living in the city and working in real estate, to living on a ranch and working with horses to help improve others’ lives—which is what REALLY makes her want to jump out of bed in the morning and make sh*t happen.

And you know, I thought what she had to say specifically about the Wildheart tools and resources might be of interest to you too.

Because she’s gotten some VERY specific things out of her time in Wildheart that have allowed her to make these dramatic changes in her life.

So, back to Devon…

“What I love most about Wildheart is that I can show up to the various coaching “hours” with a specific question—and Ellen, Sally and Natalie each help me laser in to the heart of the matter and get clarity, support and an “aha” right away which otherwise would have taken me weeks of trying to figure it out on my own.

“The benefits to me are:

Having access to a group of top notch coaching professionals all under
one roof/in one group.

Sally has created an incredibly safe and sacred Wildheart group container. It’s a place and space where I can be open and vulnerable (especially being a coach myself!) and share my ups and downs in business and personal relationships. There is NO judgment in the Wildheart group and it’s an invaluable experience to receive support and validation for being exactly who I am!

Not feeling “alone” as I build my business and can chime into the group and during the calls to ask questions and receive INSTANT support, encouragement and inspiration from fellow Wildhearts and the coaches.

Coaching to help me remove blocks and overcome hurdles as I continue to grow my business AND accountability for taking action on a weekly basis.”

I’m seriously jumping-up-and-down excited for what’s happening in Devon’s life, and at the same time I’m SO honored to have played a part in helping her make big changes, using all the tools and benefits she’s just mentioned.

So… what about YOU?

Are you ready to make a big change in your life?

Or, is your life already AWESOME—and you just crave a safe haven where you can find ongoing support and resources to help you keep going in the direction you want to go?

Either way, Wildheart’s got what you need. (click right here to find out how)

We’re here to support you every step of the way in leading a REVOLUTIONARY life—even if “revolutionary” just means you get to do what you want to do, all day, every day.

(You don’t have to have plans for world domination to be a Wildheart!)

I’d love to see you on the inside of the Revolution.

And I’ll just close this post with a few parting words from the super-smart, peacefully rebellious Devon once again:

“Being a Wildheart has shown me that I AM capable of creating a lifestyle that aligns with my values. I highly recommend The Wildheart Revolution if you’re ready to live life on your own terms and want to tools on how to get there. It WILL change your life if you jump in :) Viva Wildheart!”

I couldn’t agree more, Devon—Viva Wildheart!

And, if YOU are interested in living a revolutionary life (while there’s still time)…

I’d love to see you on the inside of The Wildheart Revolution. (click here to find out way more about it) :)

You ready to rock?


P.S. The doors to the Wildheart Revolution are closing this Friday, November 14. Jump in while you can! :)
