I love this! This is so true. There is true freedom in being able to be who you are and in full!
Last night I did a Zoom video training online for some entrepreneurs from all over North America and I really hit home on this!
Be as much ˜”°•.˜”°• YOU •°”˜.•°”˜ as you can be! The more we are being ourselves expressing our beautiful divinity and individual sacredness, the better.
I was saying that I actually made a point of being me on that call last night. I wore no makeup, I had a little hole that I discovered in my yoga top that I was wearing .. and I did not change it. I just went with it 🙂 And you know what? It felt great! GREAT I tell you.
I am learning that the more ME I can BE the easier this thing called Life gets.
So why not let yourself loose today and go all in just being YOU? You who has your own unique smile, way of chewing, nose, wit, passions, desires, JOYS, insecurities, cuteness, nastiness, ups, downs, and all-arounds. 🙂
May your unique dance of life be yours and only yours.
An Amazing Story of Transformation from Suffering to FREEDOM!
Last night in the grocery store I was witness to something pretty amazing!
I ran into a woman who used to work for me and she was a different person. I have run into her a couple of times in the last couple of years and each time she has transformed more and more into this new beautiful person. But last night she was off the charts AMAZING!
In the past she was sick, in pain, down, irritable and you could tell she was just not happy. She didn’t enjoy her work or her life.
I will call this woman ‘Mary’. What changed for Mary? Mary became empowered. She left her husband and ventured out on her own. She now has her own home and she is happy. Her energy was light and airy and her eyes twinkled and sparkled and she looked like a completely different person to me.
Mary is excited about life now, no longer in physical pain, and she appeared radiantly happy. It just brought me so much JOY to see this. She even declared how happy she is and you could see it!
Sometimes in life we have to leave things like situations, jobs, relationships when they are no longer serving us for our highest good. What is the price we pay if we do not and we are suffering? We stay in suffering.
For me, any relationship that I have in my life, should empower me, not disempower me. Whether it is my friend, my partner, or a business relationship, I believe it should be mutually empowering, uplifting and beneficial for all, otherwise I am out.
Mary was such a clear messenger on how powerful and positive a change like this could make. She honored herself enough to leave this relationship that was not serving her and was not a loving and supportive situation, to keep it simple. I will not go into details. The point is that Mary took her life back and is now thriving and not merely surviving.
I just had to share this story because to me it is a sign of HOPE and what can be. Our lives can change when we choose to look closely at those things that are not serving us and are in fact disempowering ourselves, even if they are simple things like habits, conversations, self-talk, fears, etc.
By taking a look at what makes you ‘feel good’ in your life and what ‘sucks your life force and energy’, you can get clear on what you want more of in your life and what has to go.
I hope you found this post helpful even if it is just to open up more to ‘feeling’ your way through life and to use your feelings as your GPS to more Happiness.
Have an amazing day and I send nothing but Blessings to all who are reading this. 🙂

“To thine own self be true”says Polonius in Hamlet. Very wise words indeed!
Yesterday as I was preparing for my guest appearance over on Elevated Radio today, talking about “owning our own voice and being who we are“, I came up with this acronym and thought it was pretty darn good. I know I sure will be keeping this handy to remind myself to just be ‘Me’. 🙂
Be YourSELF YourSELF = Your Own Unique Real SELF
As of late, the topic of being real, raw, and authentic is a hot one in my world. I am personally working at getting better at this. In fact, I am challenging myself!
Yesterday a client and I were discussing through FB my blog post from yesterday where I was talking about judging and criticizing myself in my picture of myself. She mentioned she did it too! I said that I think we all do and then I sent her this:
Here was her response to me:
I answered her with IKR? (I know right) :-). But when I really thought about this, I thought I am onto something here. If I/we can challenge ourselves to put ourselves out there in a raw and real way, it will just get easier and then I can see the scales flipping! The more comfortable we get, the more we accept ourselves, the more we LOVE ourselves, and the more we are truly, truly, FREE.
FREE to be us! FREE to be comfortable with who we are. FREE to share our gifts with the world.
Now how awesome would that be? Let’s do it, shall we? 🙂
