You didn’t think I forgot to acknowledge Thanksgiving, did you? I know yesterday was filled with family, friends, food, and relaxation. Today your belly is probably stuffed and your mind contemplating all of the people and circumstances you want to thank in your world. I received so many loving messages from friends and clients over the last couple of days. It warms my heart to know that I am a part of someone’s thank you list.
All of this reminds me how much I am filled with gratitude for you. You allow me into your world weekly and give me a platform to teach about my life’s purpose in helping women everywhere expand their hearts and minds to let in love. Feeling love is the most satisfying feeling in life, and I am so privileged to help spread love.
Love is the core to our foundation of knowing ourselves, and accepting every single part of who we are, the good, the bad, and the ugly. All of it is needed to be who we are daily. Love can conquer anything and love can attract in anything that you desire. So you can see when you become proficient in love, anything is possible.
Right now you are probably with family or friends, and so I wanted to give you a quick love tip that will work every single time. Do you have moments when you are with others, especially family, where you feel judged or hurt by what someone said or did? I know I have struggled frequently with this. Hence, why one of my biggest love lessons has been asking not assuming. I have found that when I ask my mom, dad, brother, or a friend what they meant by what they said, when I feel judged or hurt life becomes a lot simpler. The reason it gets simpler is that we get to the root of what someone was intending instead of dreaming up a reason for what they meant. Trust me it wasn’t easy to say, hey wait what did you mean by that? And I will tell you it has prevented me so much grief and feelings of someone not getting me, that I have now made it a habit.
So your lovework for the week is to think about the times (if any) you have been hurt by family or friends, even in the last couple of days. ASK them in a neutral curious way, “What did you mean by that?” or “What was your intention?” . Most people are TRYING to come from a place of love, and so when you can seek out ways to see that, somehow relationships feel more fulfilling and connected.
P.S I again want to thank you from deepest parts of my heart for being a part of my daily inspiration and motivation. I have to say without you I wouldn’t be able to continue to do what I do. Thank you.
