Good afternoon all!

Today’s reflection is simple. How do I love myself? Not, why, but how. What are the actions?

Is self-love an action or a feeling? Or an action caused by feeling? Or a feeling caused by action(s)?

The answer is… yes. Its all of those things.

But which comes first? Obviously its a dance back and forth, but I guess theres no definite answer and it could be different for everyone.

Its important though for me to mention that the feeling of self-love holds no ground without action and vice versa. So, is self-love contained in both?

Or, is it perhaps that without cause there is no effect, without action there is no feeling. We could absolutely argue that the feeling could come first, but would it? Bc if you sat in a room alone doing nothing but sitting in a room alone would you find self-love? I think the answer is no, unless you’re meditating, and then we are back to action.

So, in the end I feel that the feeling of self-love is unattainable without the actions of self-love. And, ALTHOUGH at ANY moment we can decide to love ourselves, even to arrive at this point of power would take actions.

So, in order to love ourselves, we must LOVE ourselves (the action.)

So, today, how do I love myself? By honoring my needs, by sending this message, by eating home-made chili, by researching foods best for my health, by hugging and kissing my best friend, by staring at pics of my future french bulldog, by investing into my passions, by stretching, by drinking lots of water and taking vitamins, by smiling and embracing all that I am.

And that could not have come without self-love.

The beautiful cycle continues! ❤

Thanks for being on the other side, Happy Sunday!

Good morning everyone! Hope your New Year has been wonderful so far. I am noticing how much people see the relationship of what we are doing during this time to how we are creating our year, and yet, I also feel that this is always a metaphor to notice. Every day in all the little steps are what create our entire life, not just the big moguls.

That being said, I’ve had a much harder time drafting up goals this year bc I don’t have *a lot* of things I want to do, and its been having me feel un-inspired. What’s wrong with me? How come I only have 3 big artistic goals this year? Then I realized that my goals are the biggest goals I’ve shot for, and instead of creating 20 small ones I have 3 big ones, and its enough for me.

Additionally, these goals are what God has put on my heart for now, it doesn’t mean in a months time I won’t know more information, just as I’ve been saying.

So, if you’re struggling to figure out what you want to be doing, just take the next step, create goals around daily healthy habits, and be OK with that, for the habits we have at New Years can benefit us greatly to keep all year round.

What are your goals and/or resolutions this year?
Thanks for being on the other side!

Hey Everyone!

My apologies for the evening message, I left my mothers home in AZ this morning around 630am for a 5 hour drive, to come home rest and leave for work for an 8 hour day, including 3 performances. So, needless to say I was prioritizing my rest and am now messaging you at half time of the 2nd show! 🙂

Well, again, I had a wonderful holiday season and feel so encouraged that we are incredibly responsible for how our relationships feel. That could be bad news to you, but its great news to me, bc that means I can transform so many relationships!

Today a quote by Maya Angelou popped up:

“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.”

Goodness, she continues to amaze me. If this is true, and we follow our lives to be successful everywhere, and most importantly, can have self-LOVE instead of self-absorption, we can transform our relationships by being someone we’re proud to be, instead of WAITING for the other to transform it, be a better person, give us more assurance, blah blah, etc etc.

With all of this comes tremendous self-love, outside love and freedom.

It all just really excites me. I also noticed that while it feels like a little bit more energy up front, in the end its much easier and smoother and requires much less energy.

Tomorrow is a big day for me!! 50/100! I perform again tomorrow, so won’t be able to take myself out on a date, but I anticipate something of that nature this weekend ❤

Sending love to all, thanks for being on the other side!

Love is the reward for love.
