Good afternoon everyone!

Hope your day is going well so far.

Today I am super excited to share with you all that I’m 2 weeks into taking a course on Self-Sabotage (not how to do it, how not to! haha) and its really interesting! So far there has been reading assignments, meditations, interviews and lists I’ve needed to make. One of the lists I needed to make was “What have lifes biggest lessons been for me?” As I peeked back into my past, I realized that everything challenging I faced only impacted me bc of my lack of self-love and clarity, and so it felt amazing to see that my biggest lessons have always been about loving and knowing Self. There is not going to be someone who saves me or rescues me! And this is great news, because then *that* means no one can take my joy and self-love away.

Another great lesson I see is about expression, whether that is around what my needs and wants are or simply in my art. Feeling expressed is SO important, whether that is through words, painting, calligraphy, dance, or laughter. Its so important to express and to be *fully* expressed.

I hope that all of you have enjoyed this journey of self-exploration for me. It has definitely increased my self-love and awareness and has also triggered my expansion of passion for internal growth, in reflection and prayer.

Just a few more days to go! Can you believe it? Thanks for being on the other side 🙂

Good morning all!
Today, on a day which celebrates love, lets be mindful that it is a reminder for celebrating love everyday. ❤
Secondly, did anyone look or find anything from researching your learning and/or where you might be stuck or plateaued in growth?
Last but not least, I wanted to briefly write about wholeness. When I was younger, I really leaned into partying, alcohol, etc. I had an empty hole and filled it up with that validation and distraction. When I found dance, I was so much more empowered!! I immediately switched over and had this incredibly healthy tool to fill up that empty space with!

And, then, about 6 years ago (through my work with Landmark) I realized that I had been doing that; trying to fill my emptiness with something external. Then I realized that, no matter how healthy dance is, no thing will ever fill up that empty space I felt inside.

I had tried to fill it up with so many things, people, success, career, music, dance, IG, beauty products, so much more. But, then, about 3.5 years ago, God came along and since then I have been learning how to fill that empty space with God, with myself, with my Self love.

If we are using anything, anything at all besides our own Self to be complete, it will fail. Universe/God/Higher Power will not let that disempowerment continue, because, if you don’t complete yourself how can you fully love someone? You couldn’t, because the fear of them leaving and you ‘losing’ that completeness will dominate.

I recently read “Once you are happy alone others will want to be with you,” and thats true, but I don’t think it speaks better than the quote “Don’t find your other half, find another whole.”

Happy Valentines everyone, may the occurrences with the loves in your life that you find never alter your own love of self, for once you have God and that is enough, you are forever empowered and complete.

Thanks for being on the other side ❤

Good morning all! I’m up nice and early today, I fell asleep very early last night and when my eyes opened up so early this morning I decided hey, lets go for it!

First, almost as a side note, I’ve been eating so much healthier lately, yesterday was a cheat day. Wow, I can’t get over the mental difference I experienced. Is that an age thing in terms of how much it affects me? Or is it how much I *notice* it. It was so much more difficult to focus yesterday. I’ve been really enjoying eating healthier, the effects it has on me are powerful. My body is more flexible, tight, and I am more motivated. Yesterday was the pits! Ha.

Secondly, I’ve been really enjoying reading these quotes about self-love. I do feel that this experience has taught me more about Self-Love; discovering myself and doing more for myself. Although, at some point I think the emails got distracting and it felt like a series of emails instead of a series of Self-Love.

So, atleast for this last week of emails I will do something especially kind to myself each day. Today, to love myself, I will plan my celebration date for 100/100. Its on the 17th, my favorite #!

I hope you all are well out there, loving yourselves and and eating healthy and taking the time to nourish your soul. Here’s one quote I love today:

  1. “A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.”
    – Mark Twain

Good morning everyone! I am inspired by this quote today:

„Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it.”  Charles R. Swindoll

I FIRMLY believe that life is going to be a series of challenges that are what our higher power knows we need to achieve unconditional love. We will continue to manifest something until we can love and accept what has been. What, in your life, if anything, do you hate? Hate will never free you from it, and you’ll continue to bring it about until you can love it and let it go.

This includes our past and right now. I never thought I could re-write history until I did Landmark, and from re-arranging my view through incredible self-discovery, I learned how to look at my past in a whole new light.

If you want to sign up for a 3 day course that can transform every aspect of your life, look here: www.landmarkworldwide.org and SIGN UP. Best thing I ever did for myself.

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

Good afternoon everyone.

I have been drinking Yogi tea brand for quite some time, and the other day, for the first time, I realized they had pretty messages on their tea tags. The first one I noticed read:

“You don’t need love. You are love.”

And that has been touching me for the past 3 days so I’m simply sharing that with you today.

❤ Thanks for being on the other side.

Good morning!

Yesterday I re-posted a quote on IG about how there are people who are more successful than you, doing what you want to be doing, simply because they chose to believe in themselves.

The wording on that is impeccable. They “chose” to believe in themselves.

It’s not something we have to wait for, right? It entails my circular thoughts the other day regarding the chicken and egg, or the self-love as an action or feeling. One day, I’ve just gotta CHOSE to love self, and thats the answer. The beginning is simply our choice.
Jojo.

Hey all! Good morning! Anyone else out there stuck with this bug??

I am reflective this morning of the following quote:

„No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.” –Voltaire


There is a lot going on in the world today, most of it feels ‘over there’ for us. While our self-love is incredibly important, how important is it?

When you die you will meet God. Hebrews 9:27 This scripture has always meant more to me emphasizing the ‘you’ instead of the ‘die.’ When we, the ego, is removed, then we can experience God. Whether you believe in Jesus, a higher power that is in a glowing light, or just no God at all, either way, removing ego is at the forefront of growth. Thus, again, how important is our little world?

I’ve been swirling this around in my mind quite a bit lately. I have a passion for socio-economic prejudice and the impacts it has on education and impact on persona and a pre-determined and taught self-relationship with people in that society. And, I have things I have going on in my small world.

I continue to toggle about liking my haircut while there are others who are unsure of how to attain their next meal by no fault of their own, being born into poverty in this country. 

 
So, as I continue to self-love, my self-gaze dims, it expands, the self-righteousness of me needing to love my breasts disempowers, I move forward past my nose into society, where the whole world is living. In this I feel I am overflowing.

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