Why Not Encourage & Uplift?

Do you know what I would like to see MORE of in the world today?

People encouraging and uplifting each other.

I am talking about straight up encouragement and supporting our fellow human beings walking the earth as a team of souls travelling together.

I love to see this in people’s personal lives, in community, in business and in life in general.

It feels so good when someone supports you, especially when it comes to things that bring you JOY! For example if someone you know enJOYs somethings like sports, learning, working, reading, playing, using technology, taking pictures, writing, travelling, and the list goes on, support them on their journey. Encourage them to do more of what brings them JOY!

JOY and enJOYment are different for all of us. What brings you JOY may not bring me JOY but we are not here to judge each other. We are here to LOVE each other. Love is also a form of encouragement, upliftment and mutual support and respect.

Let us all encourage each other to find our JOY, to live with and through our own PASSIONS fueled by our own DESIRES that make us HAPPY and JOYOUS.

I wish you nothing but JOY, JOY, JOY, today and every day. I hope you always honor your soul and do more things everyday that make your heart smile and bring you JOY!

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 “in an Instant” 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 it’s self-love, self-acceptance or self forgiveness it truly can happen instantly if we ‘change our minds’ 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!
