Good morning all!

First and foremost, I sincerely want to thank you (again) for being on the other side. Knowing that you were out there made a big difference for me. It gave me accountability and a feeling of vulnerability and contribution. Just by your interest in me I felt valued and supported in my growth. It transformed my areas with a lack of self-love into a place to connect with others. By your desire to connect to yourselves, me and to grow, you transformed this experience for me. So, deeply, thank you.

Thank you to those of you who replied from time to time or consistently. It also made a big difference to me to know that the emails were being read, appreciated, and thought about. I appreciated hearing from people I knew and didn’t know.

Here is what I can recall that I’ve learned of from this experience.

1. Self-love is not something that falls out of the sky. It takes experience and its up to us.

2. I can complete something powerfully if I put my mind to it.
3. No man or thing is going to rescue me. I have to ‘rescue’ myself. (for me that is through God.)
4. I sometimes kept people at a distance to keep myself ‘safe’ and then complained about not having more close friends.
5. A very easy way to find energy in life is to view it from opportunity rather than obligation.

6. Constant shifting in my learning approach is important to perpetual growth.
7. People care about me and value what I have to say. Its important to remember that in order to carry out my purpose.
8. I saw myself much less sexy than others see me and I’m working on expressing that publicly.
9. Although Self-love is something that takes work, you also must choose to start.
10. You can start to love right now, by loving the ‘now,’ knowing that its already perfect.
These are just some of my journey, and again I’m so grateful for this and being able / willing to complete!

I am not sure if I will take on another project yet, I grew a lot from this and its discipline, however, I’d love to keep in touch with you all that signed up. If you would like to STOP receiving any emails from me in the future about updates or new projects I take on, simply reply STOP. 🙂

Thanks for being on the other side!! We did it!
I LOVE MYSELF!!!!

Love is the reward for love.

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 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 everyone 🙂

Last night I had a dream. I was in a corner store and the woman in front of me did something silly, to which I can’t remember the exact details, and I gave her some unsolicited advice, she didn’t reply. The woman behind me tapped me on the shoulder and said to me “You’re just going to be incomplete with her like that??” I made a confused face.

She gestured in a way that was collecting her thoughts. She said “You must center your life around something, but ONE thing, and you must commit your whole life to that. You should be able to write a whole book about it, even if to you, its something small. You must be the knowledge for this aspect, and all of life will fit into place.”

I looked at her directly and said “But my heart has many little passions and I like it that way.” She giggled and said “ok!” Immediately after I said that I doubted my statement. I wondered if I was being stubborn.

And that’s all I remember.

And, this morning, I can’t decide whether she was speaking as the omen, or I was. I have been debating about if I’m taking on too many things for some time now. It stunts the growth of each other thing a bit, but without them I feel a loss of Self.

I don’t have an answer for it, today, and thats ok. And so, my journey continues. ❤

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 afternoon everyone! I wrote this hours ago and did not hit send!  🙂 Oops!!

For today:

5. THE LAW OF RESPONSIBILITY

– Whenever there is something wrong in my life, there is something wrong in me.
– We mirror what surrounds us – and what surrounds us mirrors us; this is a Universal Truth.
– We must take responsibility what is in our life.

As I started to distinguish yesterday, today is about responsibility. Essentially, we see in others what we see in ourselves, we hate in others what we fear in ourselves, we create around us what we need to experience. We are creating not always what we want, but what we need.

When I first discovered this law years and years ago I was really frustrated, even a little angry. How on earth was it my responsibility how others had treated me? How was it my responsibility that I hadn’t been dealt certain cards I wanted and felt I had worked for.

Soon after, I realized that this responsibility was a huge gift. This meant I was in a position of either control, clarity and/or gratitude. Since I was manifesting everything around me I could trust that its for my own benefit, either to teach me or build me, often in the same result but they feel different.

When I look back at certain tragedies and betrayals in my life, its hard for me to understand how its my responsibility. What was I doing as a naive teenager that could karmatically warrant my first love cheating on me with my best friend? It was my first time feeling that stinging pain of my life, and a shock to my awareness that people could do those things.

But when we have certain experiences happen to us, its not always a matter of punishment, which I believe Karma is often misunderstood as. ​
Karma is about what we’re creating in our lives that we want to create, not always what our conscious mind tells us that we want. It is our higher power running the show and we will continue to manifest things that block us from love, self love, unconditional love. ​
​This is, to me, the key to understanding the Law of #5.
Thank you all for being on the other side! ​

Hey all! Another late message from another day of travel. My apologies for those of you who enjoy having it in the mornings and will be nestled into Houston until Monday and have an early flight 🙂

I am excited to write though, here we are with #3. I found diving into this quite interesting.

3. THE LAW OF HUMILITY

– What you refuse to accept, will continue for you.
– If what we see is an enemy, or someone with a character trait that we find to be negative, then we ourselves are not focused on a higher level of existence.

I find this one to be a mixture of both “What you resist persists.” AND “What you see in others is a reflection of self.” Inside of each of these is an incredible lesson, and can be helpful to one another, however, they are clearly not the same.
Question is, why is it the Law of *Humility* though? When you research the definition of humility it is as follows:

“Having or showing a modest or low estimate of one’s own importance.”

Why would that be helpful? Shouldn’t it read “Having or showing an accurate estimate of one’s own importance” in order to be able to apply this?
Lastly, I understand the 2nd point more than the 1st in regards to humility, although I find it again, interesting, that in order to accept something there’s a placement to have a low estimation of Self.

In closing, I agree with the notes, but not the title. As I have understood humility it could make sense, but by its actual definition it seems like an ineffective way of approach.

What do you all think? Thanks for being on the other side!
