compassion, Gentleness, kindness

Hard Times….

It has been awhile since I have made a blog post. I just haven’t been inspired but now I realize that it’s all ok and that blogging involves sharing through the highs and lows of life.

There seems to be so much sadness around lately and so many people going through extremely trying times… all the cycles of life and of life and death.

Yesterday we lost a very precious woman who was close to my heart, Pam Bowling, Pam was a mentor to me in business, a business partner and a friend. She was an amazing lady and I will honor her memory always. Pam was very much an entrepreneur like myself. Pam held me in the light always and encouraged me and my entire team onto success and I am forever grateful for that. In memory of Pam I will continue to forge ahead and to also help others on their journeys of creating and designing lives that bring them freedom….. to love, to grow, to inspire, to dream and to create lives that allow them to make the most of their time here on earth.

Pam was beautiful inside and out and if you knew her, you loved her!

While contemplating all of the heavy hearts and toil I see and feel going on around me, the only word that keeps coming to mind is “kindness”. Kindness, Kindness, Kindness. We need to be kind to each other, we need to be kind to ourselves and to be gentle with ourselves and others.

Kindness is that part of love that reaches out and offers support in times of need. Kindness is the thread of hope that bridges the gaps between pain and suffering. Kindness is the glue that helps to heal the holes created by loss. Kindness is a gift……

The fragrance always stays in the hand that gives the rose.

If you are reading this and need support or comfort, please know that love and kindness are sent your way today.

And to Pam…. I know you are now an angel for many of us and I feel you as the wind beneath my wings…..

self-love

Love Yourself More!

To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.

oscar wilde – playwright, poet, author

There are so many advantages to loving ourselves more. It is good for our mind, body, and soul and helps every single cell in our bodies to thrive rather than just survive.

The most beautiful thing you can do for yourself is to practice self-love. The best and thing about self-love is that you will NEVER be lonely if you love yourself and you will always be bathed in love. Now how awesome is that? ❤ ❤ ❤

Sure it is lovely to enJOY the company and companionship of others but when you can feel good and comfortable with yourself and with spending time alone, you really tap into a form of peace that most people in the world are seeking. It is such a beautiful place to be and well worth the effort of consciously and actively working on loving yourself more.

Here is a blog post I wrote last year “Self-love as Medicine”. You might find some useful tips there: https://maggieholbik.blog/2018/10/03/self-love-as-medicine/

And always remember that the practice of self-love is like a muscle, so the more you do it or use it, the bigger it gets! EnJOY!

She encourages others to do the same because when we are truly empowered and filled with our own love lights, we can shine our love onto the entire planet and help to illuminate the souls of others. 🙂

Friendship, giving, support

Sweet Friendships

A sweet friendship refreshes the soul.”

Proverbs 27.9 The message

Friendships are one of the greatest gifts in the world! Why is this so? For many reasons but I think a big one is because you feel supported.

In any relationship feeling understood and supported are both really important. A friend is often the perfect person to offer these gifts to you.

I really believe that in any relationship the best gift we can give each other is supporting each other in our wants and desires ie. “I want what you want for you!”. At least to me, this has been my greatest gift from my family, friends and even those I have met in my work. When we feel supported and we feel that our wants and desires are important, it truly is freeing and magical.

I hope that you too support yourself also. We need to be our own best friend and supporter. 🙂 Something to think about……

Maggie Holbik.com is enJOYing her work a an Infinite Possibilities Trainer & Coach and lately has been really appreciating all the support she has and continues to have in her life. She really believes that if you open your heart up and expand its reach, what comes back to you will be ten fold! Woo hoo and Oh ya!

Awakening, Encouragement, Joy, Passion, Uplift

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!
