Fuck It, Its My Birthday!

imageToday is my birthday. YAY!!! I took off work today and had a plan to just spoil myself all day. After all my Good Deed of the Day is to Treat Myself.

Originally my plan was to wake up and do some sort of exercise, maybe go hiking or activate my Dailey Method Living Social Coupon I bought. Then I envisioned going to Lake Shrine and doing some meditation and reading. Followed my coming home and taking a nice bath. After getting ready and maybe getting my hair blow dried at the Drybar followed by a mani/pedi before dinner with my friends tonight. Sounds great huh?

Well I woke up this morning, looked outside and saw nothing but fog. I felt like it instantly made me start to feel lazy as if I didn’t want to start what I was planning on doing. “But it’s gonna be so cold outside” my mind was telling me as my heart just wanted to enjoy the calm of the day. I started listening to my mind which didn’t put me in such a great mood.

I got up, went downstairs where my fiance was making me breakfast and my son was writing on my birthday cards. The energy was off so of course Law of Attraction was doing its job, as always, and the fiance and I started bickering all morning. GREAT! Originally I wanted to blame him for putting me in a not so good mood but I take responsibility for the energy I was putting into the universe. According to my calendar verse today, based on my favorite book Ask and It is Given,

“It is not possible for anyone else to create your reality”. Damn Right.

I drank my healthy veggie/fruit smoothie, ate some eggs and tater tots (my fav), said goodbye to everyone as they headed to work and school, went back upstairs and laid back in bed. My friend was texting me asking me what I was doing today and I was telling her my plans but also my fear that I was going to end up doing nothing that I wanted and waste time being lazy in bed. The whole time just looking outside at the fog feeling that same fog in my body. Looking at my clock, I started feeling miserable as if I was wasting time. It was already 8:30am.

“If I’m going to go hiking, I should go now, but I really want to take a warm bath, it’s so cold outside…. but is it a waste of time to take a bath BEFORE I exercise and get sweaty?…should i go hiking now or later. I havent been in a while, what if I can’t make it all the way. Ok maybe I’ll go to the gym. Or Dailey Method. But will people stare at me because I’m taking the class pregnant? I know pregnant women do it but I’m an out of shape pregnant woman…Ok ill go exercise then while I’m out go get my hair done then take a bath….wait will the bath ruin my newly done hair? Ok maybe I should skip the exercise, take a bath now then go do the other stuff. Wait but what if there’s traffic to get to Lake Shrine and back? hmm is there somewhere else peaceful but closer I can go to. Oh maybe I’ll walk around the lake…. but it’s soooo cold. I’m just wasting time now. I definitely won’t fit everything in now. Damn I bet I’m just gonna end up doing NOTHING that I want to do and just lay in this damn bed all day. Fuck the cold weather.”

All of this was consistently going through my head causing me to lose motivation and of course not feel good about myself. Then my friend text me and writes “Just do what feels good. You don’t have to think about it if you don’t want to.” and it letting those words sink in that gave me instant results. I said “U are right” and I got up and started running myself a warm bath. Something that I havent done in FOREVER!!! and now being pregnant is something that has been very much needed for myself.

“Fuck it if I don’t exercise today. Fuck it if I have to take a bath twice. Fuck it if it doesn’t go as planned. Right now I’m cold and a bath sounds nice so I’m gonna take one.” were the new thoughts going through my head. So I got in the bath, but on my SONGS FOR THE SOUL playlist and enjoyed it for an hour. While I was in the bath I get a text from my fiance telling me that I had a pregnancy massage, pregnancy bath, manicure and pedicure booked at 1:15pm at Burke Williams. Ask and It Is Given.

See, the second I listened to my heart and let go of the fear, my resistance wall went down. My new positive energy was set free into the Universe which in return, I was given EXACTLY what I wanted today. I hadn’t even told my fiance any of my plans. Maybe I won’t exercise today, I won’t get to Lake Shrine, but guess what, I’m taking responsibility of my reality , soooo…. FUCK IT! I’m filling my day with other things that make me feel good, including writing to you and that my friend is a TREAT!

As I was looking in my makeup drawer right before I started to write this blog, I randomly found some birthday cards from last year along with a piece of paper I had written some notes on, I assume from maybe an online seminar I had listened to. One of the notes said:

“No matter how much we work on the physical body, that doesn’t lead us to having the right mindset and consciousness of LOVE. It can actually promote the opposite. Your perception has to change first. If we see ourselves as perfect as we are then we use our positive thoughts to transform us vs the other way around.” Damn right 🙂

Today, in honor of my birthday, I would like you to just say “FUCK IT”. Don’t buy into the negative thoughts in your head. Think good, and do what makes you feel good. Let go of the fear, welcome the sounds of the heart, break the resistance wall with a sledgehammer and watch the Law of Attraction do it’s job, returning you with the ever flowing manifestations of your powerful self.

Most importantly TREAT YOURSELF today!

Gotta jet to the Spa now and get pampered. I’m not even re-reading this before I post. Fuck It! Happy Birthday to Me!

True Power Lies In Your Perception

7366018_mA few days ago I was talking to my friend Emily about this new relationship she’s in. She seemed quite nervous. She proceeds to say “I wish I knew what was going to happen in the future with us!, I don’t want to waste any more time”

…there, there Emily, you’re not the only one. Don’t we all wish we knew the future sometimes?

I decided to play a little game with her. I asked her to tell me what her ideal future looks like. It was something she wasn’t even too clear about, so it was fun to get her to actually picture it and put it together.

After she told me what she wanted, I said “Done!…That’s exactly what’s going to happen. You’re going get married. Have kids. The career you want. Excited about life. In love and happy!… That’s what I see in your future”

She laughed it off.

I said “What you don’t believe me?” She said “Uh no, you don’t know the future.”

“Well what if I did?…Ok well let’s just sayyyy there was such a person that could tell you exactly how you’re future was going to look…. let’s just say they told you exactly what I just told you… that everything you want is EXACTLY what’s going to happen…would you believe them?”

“Um maybe”, Emily said a little more easy. “Ok well if you KNEW that was your future, if you knew within a year you’d be engaged… what would you do from now until then?” I asked.

“I’d relax”, she laughed.

Here’s the thing, whether it’s ME telling you what your future is going to look like, or some psychic that could predict your future, in reality it doesn’t matter. Even if this psychic has never been wrong, you’d still have to have some faith in what they’ve told you. You see, because you STILL wouldn’t really know for sure what’s going to happen UNTIL it happens. The only difference between me telling you your future, and a psychic telling you is that you would CHOOSE to believe the psychic.

That right there is the power of perception. You have the power to perceive anything however you CHOOSE to perceive it. If Emily wanted to believe me and what I said her future looks like she very well could. And just like she could place that power in my hands, she could also take that power herself. SHE could become her own psychic.

Just like in my post the other day, your beliefs become your thoughts which become your words which become your actions…and so on. Sometimes it could feel like you have no control over your perception but it’s actually the ONLY thing you have control over. If you believe in the possibility of your dreams, you will then start to act accordingly to what you believe.

you-are-powerful

Emily had contemplated on breaking up with her boyfriend for no other reason then she was SO anxious about not knowing how things were going to end up and she didn’t want to waste time. In the back of  her head, she believes that maybe she’s going to end up alone. Very common for some people at our almost 30 age. I told her, that anxiousness, that fear…it was an opportunity. An opportunity to decide if she was going to move towards her dreams or towards her fears. She’s in a relationship with a guy she’s in love with and she’s very happy with him. This was the chance to not only see this is what she WANTS but also to ACCEPT that things are going the right way.

I asked her “Now that you know you’re going to marry him, do you still want break up with him?” “Well NO!” That answer is obvious because when you’ve been told what you’re future is going to be, you’re going to let it happen. You aren’t going to do anything or let anything come in way of it happening. If you believe he’s “the one” you are going to act like he’s “the one”. And if you’re acting like he’s “the one” then you won’t be surprised when he becomes “the one”. The Law of Attraction brings to you what you believe to be true.

Why are successful people successful? Because they believe they can achieve their goals or because they are afraid of failing? Because they BELIEVE they can achieve their goals. That belief is causing them to make the necessary moves they need to make to be exactly where they want to be. If they believed they were going to fail, they would fail. Period! If you truly believe you’re going to be alone in your future, big chance is you… will be!

When you can shift your beliefs and give yourself power, you will come to understand that the world is ALWAYS placing clues in your path. Clues that allow you to follow the direction of your TRUE desires. When you are OPEN you will start to notice what is being presented, you will understand it’s an opportunity to learn and grow, and you take it in order to accept your dreams coming true. If you are closed off, you will simply continue to miss your chances. You will become anxious and fearful of what’s going to happen next because the vision isn’t there. Or it could be there, but it’s the vision of your FEARS not your dreams. Anxiety and fear are nothing but indicators that your vibrations aren’t matching what the core of you desires. Take them as CLUES.

Things are always happening FOR YOU. It is up to you to recognize the opportunities and it is up to you to define what they mean to you. You do have to remember that you are a CO-creator. It’s you and your higher power. God, the Universe, your Source, all of the above, whatever you call it.

If things don’t happen EXACTLY how you envision, doesn’t mean your dreams won’t still come true. When you remember you are a co-creator, you’ll know your dreams will still come true, just maybe not in the way you always imagine. But guess what, they’ll happen even BETTER then you imagine. Because the Universe is way more expansive and creative than your mind, so it will bring you success in ways you could never think. It’ll also be a way that is also allowing you to learn the lessons you are on this Earth to learn. But you must have faith. The power lies in YOU. You don’t need a psychic to tell you what your dreams are and that they are going to happen because at the end of the day YOU are the one that has to believe it.

What are your dreams? How have you been acting accordingly? In what ways can you see your fears hindering you? Do you notice opportunities when they are in front of you?

What do you dare to dream today? How can you be more open to that dream?

Vulnerability leads to connection. Connections allows us to see we aren’t alone. Allow yourself to be vulnerable in the comments below so that you can open the opportunity for a connection with someone else. 🙂

Truth with a capital T

I cant recall if I have mentioned this before but one of the books that expanded my views about the Law of Attraction and how to co-create your reality was “Ask And It Is Given” by Esther and Jerry Hicks (The Teachings of Abraham).

I read this book a few years ago after graduating from The Landmark Forum and being obsessed with “The Secret” and it’s been a non stop journey of seeking self growth and Truth ever since. Because of this book I have been able to develope a deeper understanding of my spirituality and belief system and truely reconize the connection with my True Source within.

Yesterday I was on the way back from a trip to San Francisco and my cousin had posted about Abraham Hicks and the online videos. I began listening to the videos on the last part of my trip home and became very intrigued.

I wanted to post one today called “Finding The Truth” because to me, learning to understand what Truth (with a Capital T) means, is a good introduction to understanding how you are currently creating your reality and how to get the things you desire.

A little background on Abraham Hicks. Abraham is not a physical human being, but “a group of non-physical entities” that called themselves Abraham and they speak through and are interpreted by Esther Hicks.

Yes, I know you probably thinking “What the….” and I’ll admit I was very confused and not sure what I believed when finding about Abraham and it was one of the things that made me think “What the hell am I reading?” when I opened the book “Ask And It Is Given” but as I read I resonated with what I was reading and to me THAT is what mattered.

Sometimes it doesn’t matter who or what information is coming from, if it resonates or makes sense or connects with you, get curious about that and test and decide for yourself what the Truth is.  Enjoy this video about Truth with a Capital T!

There are so many interesting videos with many different topics so I will probably start sharing them frequently. Let me know how you liked this one!!!

LOA: Attracting Kundalini

GOOD Early Afternoon Fellow Readers,

First off I want to touch on where I am at in “May Cause Miracles” if you are wondering. I am still on week 5. Day 31 AGAIN to be exact. I actually had started last week got to Day 34 and then had not read the book for a few days so I decided to start the week all over again this week at Day 29. This week is all about Money and Finances and I KNOW I have huge issues surrounding money, and my fear over money can definitely run my life so I want to really focus well on this week.

Aside from that, I also realized I really have to start writing here more because I feel like I’m having so much more to write now and I’ve tended to skip all together which I don’t want to do. I have B-School that I have been doing and want to write about, my “May Cause Miracles” journey that I want to touch on more often, I did Oprah and Deepak’s meditation challenge that I never spoke about, along with just day-to-day life going on. I never even wrote about my trip to Bali at all. SHAME ON ME!!! I promise I will get to that soon though.

Ok so for today…. if you read my blog then you might know that I am a huge fan the Law of Attraction and being able to co-create your life and experiences. I have studied it and witnessed it again and again over these last few years within myself and others close to me.

If you are not sure what the Law of Attraction is, the basics are that you attract whatever vibrations/energy you put out into the Universe back to you. I have had some fun and testing this recently and it just blows my mind how it has worked. I will share some more stories later but now my recent story has to do with Kundalini yoga, my friend Siri Shakti Kaur, and Mastin Kipp of The Daily Love.

receive

So I first heard of Kundalini yoga via Mastin. He had mentioned it on his blog and how he loved doing it. I had never even heard about it before but after hearing him speak about it, along with some of his other blogger friends,  it started to spark my interest.

A few months ago, I think around December some time, I had reached out to an old friend of mine, Siri Shakti. I saw that she had moved down to Southern California and I was in a moment of wanting to make more friends and start connecting more with like-minded people (those of spiritual path and growth) especially those with kids. I had connected with her through FB and we started writing back and forth. Well suddenly we are talking and she asks me if I ever had tried Kundalini yoga (sign #1) . My mind was a little blown because here I had recently just heard about it and she’s asking me if I had ever tried it. I told her no but  I was interested because of The Daily Love. So she mentioned a place in North Hollywood that she likes to go to and we had tried to plan something towards the end of January before I was going to Bali. Not gonna lie, I did have a slight wonder if it was maybe the place Mastin went to because how AWESOME would that be to try it with him considering he’s one of my biggest inspirations.

During the month of January of cousin Tiara was staying with me during her trip to Los Angeles. During one of her first weekends here we had gone to Agape Spiritual Center for the first time. During the session a random girl had sat next to my cousin and towards the end they started talking about how they wanted to check out this seminar that was being held a few hours later. We were walking out and talking to this girl and she sees this guy she knew and starts talking to him. She introduces him to us and says that he is a Kundalini yoga teacher (sign #2). That is when I finally mentioned that I felt like it was being presented in my path. I go from never hearing about it before to it being brought to my attention more than once now, within a few weeks.

That night I was having Sunday dinner with my fiance’s family and we are talking to his cousin about Bali and we started talking about yoga. I mentioned how I wanted to try Kundalini yoga and ask her if she’s heard of it. She then says that she is a certified teacher of Kundalini which I had never even knew (sign#3). Well 3rd times a charm so I now knew 100% that I must meet with Siri and try it out. This was kind of freaking me out.

Well low and behold Siri and I had to cancel because we were both really busy so we decided it would obviously be best to wait until after my Bali trip. After I came back from Bali I was browsing on The Daily Love and saw that he had created an Events tab. I checked it out and the very next event that was coming up was “Mastin Kipp presents: An Evening with Your Heart” , in Hollywood, where it was going to be a 3 hour night; one hour of Kundalini yoga instructed by Sat Siri Dougherty and 2 hours of a seminar given by Mastin. BAM!!!

I hit up my friend Siri Shakti on Facebook, mentioned to her that she should come with me. I wasn’t sure she’d be able to since it was from 7-10pm and she lived about an hour or so away but she said YES and we both signed up. So just this last Saturday I had connected with my friend Siri, after 9 years of not seeing each other, trying out Kundalini yoga for the FIRST time, and all along side the guy who I had first ever even heard about it (and in my head wanted to try it out with), Mastin Kipp! Annnnd I get to attend one of his seminars while we are at it. Talk about quadruple whammie!

kundalini

The night was amazing!!! The night started with a small speech by Mastin and a few WONDERFUL original song sung by musician Chris Assaad, contributor to TDL. This guy has such a beautiful voice, the whole time he was singing I was having the chills. Then we had a Kundalini yoga session with Sat Siri Dougherty. This particular Kundalini session had moves that was geared towards us opening the heart chakra so afterwards we went through some “Kipp Heart Therapy” with Mastin where we learned how to talk to our hearts. Distinguishing your mind’s voice from your heart’s voice.

Extremely powerful!!! I was crying, others were crying. There was an energy in this room that was just felt beyond words. I actually ran into someone I had met from B-School a few weeks earlier as well as met two other people there from B-School for the first time. I was going to explain more what the night was about but don’t want this post to get too long so maybe in another post soon. I know I’m a tease!!!

Mastin has another night just like this coming up next month on May 18th. I’m thinking about signing up again. If you live in or around the LA area, I definitely say check it out.

This story was just a small example of how the Law of Attraction has worked in my life. Just in the last week I have played around with an intention in the beginning of the day and seeing how it manifested by the end of the day and it’s been working!!! LOA is real!

I dare you today to think of something small you want to attract, think positively about it all day, and see what comes to you!!! Would love to hear any stories of how it works out for you or how it has worked in the past!!! Until next time,

Welcome to B-School

Happy Monday Coffee Readers,

what_is_bschoolI just signed up for Marie Forleo’s B-School and I absolutely could not be any more excited. I got a little newsletter in my email from Mastin Kipp of “The Daily Love” promoting B-School and how he would not be where he is without it. Being that I have witnessed TDL explode over the last couple years, I totally trust his path and recommendations. I had heard him mention it before a while back but for some reason now it’s been calling my name.

One of the things that struck me when I was watching one of her videos was that Marie described herself as a “multi-passionate entrepeneur”. She was explaining how she has been interested in many different things over the years and had pursued so many different dreams and I totally related. The reason is hit me so hard was because I always felt a sort of shame for that quality in myself. I would be mad that I just couldn’t pick a certain area to completely focus on. I did not think it was normal to be really passionate about so many different things. I went to school for Psychology and since then looked into going back to school for graphic design. Started my freelance photography. Was having meetings to start making an app. Wanted to start doing mentoring through TDL. Made custom coasters as gifts one year and wanted to start selling those. I used to want to be a teacher. A financial advisor. Have had jobs in accounting and now business management. Along with millions and millions of plans and ideas.

I’m the girl who always has some new adventure she wants to begin. The thing is, I REALLY am passionate about them all and want to do it all. But like I said, I had some shame in that as if I was SUPPOSED to just be more passionate about something specific. I felt like I was always going to feel lost if I didn’t pick one thing and I’d never be successful. Of course I cared a lot what people close to me thought. “Here she is again, excited about SOMETHING ELSE”.

After hearing her use that term I immediately felt some relief. Here is this woman who felt just like I did yet she IS successful and proud of her many passions. So I decided that YES I am multi-passionate and I’m gonna own it!

Over the last almost year, I have decided that my main dream is just to grow and learn and be happy doing whatever I am doing while inspiring and helping others do the same whether it be through some sort of mentoring or life coaching, or just expressing myself through this blog. I feel that there are just waaaay too many people out there are working for the sake of money and not following their dreams and doing what makes them HAPPY. I truly believe when you take risks and trust in yourself and your purpose that money will be attracted to you and become a plus not the goal. Its my calling to make a dent in that area and it first sells by being the example.

si_2768827_pga6rwr14j_lr

I still want to do photography. I still want to sell cool coasters. I still VERY much want to do the app. and I will probably come up with a ton of more ideas and passions after that. The thing I realized is that I DONT have to pick one thing and I CAN do it all.

B-School excites me because not only have i read nothing but WONDERFUL reviews for it but I know that the tools I will learn and apply to my current passions will further help me with all the future endeavors I want to be a part of.

Usually I have really bad buyer’s remorse, almost instantly. I bought my car and wanted to take it back the next day. Last year I bought a timeshare and actually returned it a week later. I just had buyers remorse in Bali after buying a dress and a t-shirt. 🙂 B-School is a bit expensive for me but I felt such a strong pull towards it that I knew I just had to go for it. Otherwise I’m sure I would have had remorse over NOT buying it. I feel not one single bit of remorse and am counting down the days till next monday.

I am eager to learn more and expand what I am already doing so why not make this investment for myself. I saw it as an investment for my dreams. There’s no better investment than that. Sometimes you just have to jump and only look forward and I’m very proud of myself for doing that. The only thing I felt was a roadblock was the money, which I’m sure for most people it is. The magical thing was, on Friday I was thinking about taxes and it hit me, I usually get around the same amount of money back in taxes as the school costs so that could cover the investment. Voila! See the Law of Attraction is always working and this time it came as a simple reminder.

I’m excited for you guys to now witness the effects of B-School and how it will work for me. Registration closes today at 3pm EST and they don’t think it’ll be open again until 2014 so if you have time to check it out and make the investment do so ASAP otherwise sit back and enjoy the show and by this time next year, we will see where I’m at.

May Cause Miracles: Week 1 Part 2

So it’s Tuesday and I’m starting Day 8. Yay, I made it through week 1. Usually Day 8 would have started yesterday but I was so out of it I could barely concentrate all day. I got home from Bali and was still trying to catch up time wise. I want to be able to put my energy into becoming aware and causing miracles so I gave myself a break.

Summary of the end of last week. I loved it. I love this book. Crazy enough I loved witnessing my fears. To me the opposite to Love is Fear so if I want to start living out of Love, I first have to learn how to get Fear to move its big booty over. I can not do that if I don’t take the time to recognize how fear is working in my life and I think the subtle steps in week 1 did a great job at helping do that.

Untitled-1

Day 4 was particularly my favorite because it was about Gratitude. “Gratitude is my only attitude for today“. Being grateful for the experiences I go through, the things around me, what I have, and even my fears have freed a whirlwind of paralyzing emotions. As human, we often tend to place focus on our lack of, which can cause fear and anxiety. When we shift and start to focus on what we have and become grateful for that, we let go of the fear and anxiety and welcome the abundances of the universe.

Day 4 Gratitude List:
1. Being able to experience this book
2. Waking up in magical Bali
3. The sounds of nature as I wake up in the morning
4. The black butterflies I keep seeing everywhere
5. My thoughtful fiance
6. Skype and being able to talk and see my son while I’m away
7. Being able to take a vacation
8. My blog – readers and followers
9. The pictures I have taken of this beautiful city
10. The opportunity to create peace through meditation.

and the list could go on an on. On Tuesday and Wednesday we actually were in a seminar about the Law of Attraction and each day we had to fill out a gratitude sheet with 50 things we are grateful for. It was amusing how on the second day things started coming to mind more quickly and any and everything was on the lists. That’s the glory of it. The more often you practice being grateful, the easier it gets and the more you become grateful for. You then move through the day LOVING your life.

The part of Day 4 that made me really enjoy it was figuring out how to be grateful for my fears. I had to go back to Day 1 and read some of my fears and write ways in which I am grateful for them.

“I fear that I’m not there enough or won’t be there for my son”
– I am grateful for this fear because it has made me more attentive to the NOW. I have become aware of the time I have and how  I will choose to spend time with my son, love him, play with him, laugh with him.

I fear that I won’t live the life that I dream”
– I am grateful for this fear because I know that if I want to live the life I dream I have to start taking the steps towards that life. I will start to focus more on my goals and acting appropriately in able to get closer.

Our fears can guide us towards being a victim or can guide us through seeking opportunity. Through opportunity we can GROW and LEARN.

Day 5 was all about the F-word…. FORGIVE. This is a day I know I will be continuously working on. If you do not know any better, it can be really hard to forgive. It is vital for our well-being though. It means you are choosing to move forward in your life. When you hold onto things it keeps you bound to that moment and can block all kinds of love from entering your heart. Most people think that forgiving means that they are excusing a behavior, but in fact it just means you have found your peace with it and won’t allow it to continue to lead your life. The most important person to forgive is yourself. “I forgive myself for choosing fear. Today I will choose love instead”.

Its time to let myself off the hook. It ‘s time to realize that before I didn’t know any better but to allow fear rule my world. Now I am learning and it’s OK. All the choices of my past. It’s OK. Such a relief to know ITS OK. The evening exercise for this day was to replace my fearful thoughts with the knowledge that fear does me no good.

I fear that I am not good enough” – THIS FEAR IS NOT SERVING ME. I FORGIVE THIS FEAR AND CHOOSE LOVE INSTEAD.

On Day 6 the affirmation of the day was “I believe in Miracles”. This day is about using the experiences I’ve had throughout the week into actively witnessing miracles take place. A miracle is a moment in which you choose love over fear. After working 5 days witnessing my fears and opening up to loving ideas, it’s time to notice how it can work for me. I can say that I have definitely witnessed some miracles on the way. On this day particular, one I remember is when we went to the Bali Zoo and decided to do a treetop adventure. I am afraid of heights but for some reason I wanted to experience this adventure. It had to do with all kinds of obstacles that were very high up in the trees. Zip lining, climbing up and down ropes, walking on crazy brides, on tightrope etc. Lets just say fear jumped all over this opportunity. I found myself very scared in many situations throughout this adventure but also found myself choosing love instead. THAT’S A MIRACLE! I chose to push my fears aside (I’ll admit sometimes I had to be pushed off the ledge….literally), breath, and welcome in a loving thought. The best past was that it seemed automatic. Miracles DO happen!

The week ended with Day 7 allowing me to reflect on the weeks work. It’s awesome to have a day where I can just reflect on what has happened to me and the shifts that have taken place. I even took an extra day to do so.

I am so excited for week 2 to begin. SELF LOVE week. A week I truly truly need.

catch up with you soon.
