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!

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!

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!

Well great afternoon! I just slept for approx 12 hours, and it was much needed. I’m still recovering, but feeling loads better. You know that feeling when you wake up like a new person? Well, I don’t have that yet! Hahah! But, I feel a lot better and anticipate that new feeling tomorrow! So lets pray for that clearing.

I pray all of you are happy and whole out there!

I love today’s Karmatic exploration!

11. THE LAW OF PATIENCE AND REWARD

– All Rewards require initial toil.
– Rewards of lasting value require patient and persistent toil.
– True joy follows doing what we’re suppose to be doing, and waiting for the reward to come in on its own time.

I love the idea of both patience and hard-work coming hand in hand. I have found that patient people are often too passive, and go-getter people are often worrysome, and its nice to have these conjoin.

Our greatest strength is often always our greatest weakness in another setting. God makes no mistakes, its up to us to use it at the right venture!

Sending love, thanks for being on the other side!

Good morning all my lovers out there!

How are you doing? My morning has been great so far. Simply stretching, listening to beautiful music, and warm water. How do you start your mornings?

I’m grateful for this project bc of what I’ve discovered about my Self and about my relationship to Self with others. I’m grateful that I have accountability on the other side that expects me to check in with myself first thing every morning. I love that I’ve been able to do that 83 days in a row. Most of you have stuck it out, I had 3 un-subscribers for reasons such as the posts being too much about God or not having time to read the length. And of course, thats ok.

Today, lets take some time today to tell THREE people what we appreciate about them. Every once in a while I’ll get a wild hair and just call people for the sake of calling them to appreciate them. Whether you call or do it in person, today just let 3 people know what it is about them that you love and appreciate. ❤

Thanks for being on the other side!

9. PRACTICE. THE LAW OF HERE AND NOW

– Looking backward to examine what was, prevents us from being totally in the HERE AND NOW.
– Old thoughts, old patterns of behavior, old dreams…
– Prevent us from having new ones.

Good morning all!

Today is the 81st day, can you believe it? I wonder how many of my emails you all have read. Some, all, barely? I hear from some of you but its nice to get check-ins from you all. 🙂 Hope you enjoyed your weekend.

You know, I cut my hair off the other week, it was pretty spontaneous. The haircut and the color both turned out to be done awfully bad. I’m not sure if its related but my hairdresser was fired days later. I had a friend come in and repair it but my hair looks nothing like it used to and I prefer it the old way. And, I can’t say for sure if I’d like it more than my old hair if it looks the way I wanted it to. And everyones so fast to say “Well, it will grow back.” And that’s true, it will in two years or maybe one year with daily Biotin, but isn’t it so easy for us to tell others not to worry? We are exceptional advice givers and have a harder time doing what we say.

And why is that? Is it the distinction between perspective and action? Or is it being able to see ourselves less clearly? Or more clearly? Or is it us just projecting our ‘crap’ onto others? At any rate, I often have found people are very empowered giving others advice they didn’t ask for. I don’t ever say “Oh I’m so upset about my hair, do you have any advice for me?” Its simply, I don’t prefer my hair responded with “Oh don’t worry it’ll grow back.” Whats my point I’m sure you’re asking if you’ve read this far.

My point is this: Why do we do that? Or first jump instinct is to provide something for someone, to give some help or advice or coaching instead of just being with that person. I personally would rather have someone laugh with me about it then come into the space of fixing it. That’s just me, of course. But the point is still, instead of these triggered and automated responses, where can I just be with someone?

Where am I just using automated responses verbally or actually? Where am I being inauthentic? Where am I just comforting someone when they don’t want or need to be comforted?

I can be honest in that a lot of my strengths in my personality are about helping others and I’m sure that bleeds into spaces it doesn’t need to be or is wanted. So, today, I’m forgiving myself for getting this haircut, (joke) for automated responses, I’m forgiving others for assuming I need something when I haven’t pointed to that, and I’m going to be in the moment, bringing to the table the interaction with that individual instead of pre-determined responses. How are you doing? “Good” is another example of a blanket response with no real interaction.

So, lets make it a day to be present with others, to offer more than consolation, to be For Giving, and to For Getting of our previous automated responses.

Also, I revamped my work program yesterday, I’m starting my 21 days again today and will KYP! Last but not least, here’s today Karmatic focus:

7. THE LAW OF FOCUS

– You can not think of two things at the same time.
– When our focus is on Spiritual Values, it is impossible for us to have lower thoughts such as greed or anger.
