You, Beautiful: Getting gorgeous from the inside out…Coming Soon!
“I am beautiful.”
What would it feel like to say this to yourself — and really mean it?
Most of us would feel silly or even cringe looking in the mirror and saying these words. We’d think first, not true. (Says who?) Second, that’s so vain. (Again, says who?)
Valuing ourselves this way — as inherently beautiful and by implication, worthy of love and respect — is a radical act Read More
It’s true. We really do.
Through our actions, especially what we choose to overlook or confront, we teach people how they are allowed treat us. When we let them talk to us a certain way or when we look the other way as they take advantage of us — when we go along to get along — we are actually teaching people what’s okay with us.

There’s something really wonderful about putting our thoughts on paper where we can see them. Writing slows us down and gives us time to think. Intuition and random thoughts start joining into vivid pictures until all of a sudden, we see new connections, aha’s!, and fresh ideas.
Kind of like turning a sweater inside out so we can finally see the tag that’s been itching us, putting a vague idea that’s been drifting around in our heads down on paper gets it out where we can see it. In the light of day, it may look amazing; it may not. Either way, writing it down gives us power over what happens next.

We tend to listen too hard to other people’s ideas about what we should and shouldn’t try or what we’re good at or how we should spend our time and lives. We take the headlines too seriously and immediately apply them to ourselves, when they don’t.

When we focus on “why,” “how” takes care of itself.
Ask anyone who’s done the impossible why they did it, what gave them the energy to push past the roadblocks and frustrations, the destructive doubts and difficult people, and chances are you’ll hear about a personal passion, a clear reason they had to achieve this particular goal.
They couldn’t give up because they needed to support a family.
They had to prove to themselves they were worth something more.
They wanted to experience life at its highest and most fulfilling.
And so reaching for the goal wasn’t just about using their head and their hands. It was about using their heart. The “how” ended up taking a backseat to the “why.” Read More
