Make Dates With Life & People * Dโ™ฅaโ™ฅtโ™ฅeโ™ฅs *

There is something so special about spending one-on-one time with people that you love and enJOY being with. To this day I can remember back to a time when I had lunch with my Dad, at a little local restaurant. I think this might have been one of the very few times, if not the one and only time, we had lunch together at a restaurant, just the two of us. I remember it clearly. And my father has been gone since 1995! That is how meaningful that seemingly simple lunch was.

Spending time one-on-one with someone else is a beautiful form of intimacy and connection that is absolutely special. โœฟ.๏ฝก.:* โ˜†:** โ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅ

My daughter Sivanna and I have a Tuesday date where we go out and enJOY some food together before her gymnastics class at 6:30 pm. Usually it is Chinese but sometimes it is Tacos for Taco Tuesday. ๐Ÿ™‚ It really does not matter where we go or if we are even going out to eat, it matters that it is our special time together.

Spending Time With Others is a ๐ŸŽ€ ๐‘”๐’พ๐’ป๐“‰ ๐ŸŽ€

Spending time with others is a gift to both parties, provided the people you are spending time with are a positive encounter. That is certainly a place that I have come to in life. I prefer to enJOY the company of those who reciprocate in lifting each other up and enhancing our lives with conversations of JOY, beauty, and excitement for life, sharing our thoughts on things that make us happy, new projects we are working on, goals, dreams, and anything that feels good. Not to say, I am not available to lend a kind ear, or an empathetic heart, but I do prefer to have those ‘special’ dates with life enhancing partners and where we both feel GOOD after it’s over.

My honey and I have our date night every Friday night. We both look forward to it greatly. We talk nonstop and bounce ideas off each other, we share our philosophies, we share and co-create ideas for what to write about, (we both love to write to express ourselves), we bounce around business ideas, updates, discussions about our daughter, and on it goes.

We love these date nights. โ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅ Sometimes we go out, sometimes we stay in, sometimes we dance to our own music, sometimes we laugh our a%#es off, and sometimes we have heart to heart talks… and it is all good. It is our special time. It is our date night and it is something we honor.

Our little table at the Lake House where we have had many romantic dinners together.

And I even do dates with myself! Yep. I walk into a restaurant and I tell them I would like a table for one because I am having a date with my best friend ๐Ÿ™‚ I do enJOY immensely having these times with myself. In fact, I enJOY them A LOT!

I love being alone with myself and with my thoughts. I feel so FREE. Free to be ME. FREE to do whatever I want in that time. It is GLORIOUS in fact.

A beautiful Butterfly FREE like ME

I hope you too see the beauty in having dates with life and the people that you enJOY being with. Why not start today and book something for this upcoming week? It can be as simple as sharing a cup of tea with a friend. ๐Ÿ™‚

I Love You More!

I wrote a blog post earlier today about telling people you love them and then this happened. ๐Ÿ™‚ Nothing more to say. ๐Ÿ™‚

Comparing Ourselves to Others

Question:

My two closest friends are really beautiful, always have boys around them and are charismatic. Meanwhile I’m the exact opposite. I can’t help feeling envious and bad about myself. How can I change this?

I answered this question over on another platform and thought it was worth sharing here as well. So here was my answer:

First know that you are not alone. We all have feelings of insecurity and unworthiness at times in our lives. In fact, as a Life Coach, this is the thing I see most with people. They truly do not love themselves enough, and do not feel personally empowered to be who they really are.

I would encourage you to become your own best friend! What would a best friend say to themselves? What would best friends say to each other? Would they encourage each other? Would they support each other? YES they would!

I wish I had learned to love myself earlier in my life. I do now. 100% but I went through a lot to get here. You do not have to! Things can happen โ€œin an Instantโ€ just like sending an email or a text message and it shows up instantly. I wrote a blog post about this and you or someone may find it helpful. Here is the link: The Art of Instant Forgiveness

Whether itโ€™s self-love, self-acceptance or self forgiveness it truly can happen instantly if we โ€˜change our mindsโ€™ about it. So here is the greatest secret to shifting your feelings. Focus on the things that you do love about yourself and get excited about those. We all have some things that we do love.. maybe our laugh, our kindness to animals, etc. There is always something to be grateful for. When we get grateful we shift our energetic frequency from envy to JOY and JOY is where we want to be.

I wish you nothing but Happiness and JOY and I hope you get excited about being YOU and en-JOYing the beautiful gift that you are to the world. Blessings!

Strong & Free!

I went on a lovely walk this afternoon and found this beauty. It made me beam with pride to be Canadian and looking at this picture I think of “Strong & Free”. The rocks representing the land and beauty that we have that lasts for lifetimes. The maple leaf symbolizing the freedom we have in this country along with a reminder that life is both precious and ever changing…. seasons…. cycles…. and lifetimes.

I hope you all take a moment today to stop and see the beauty in your day and if your life. Life is indeed precious.
