Change Starts With You

Don’t like what you see in the world? Be the voice of a generation that is bringing Love back. Speak out against hate. Reject violence as the answer to divisiveness. Actual change starts within you.

Never underestimate the power of one person to create a ripple of love in this world. I know how it feels to think you are helpless to effect change, but you are not helpless. You are a powerful being of Love created by God, who is pure Love. Love has the power to cancel out fear and hate.

Change happens when we do our own personal work by noticing the thoughts, feelings and beliefs that are less than loving and decide to do something to challenge these barriers to love. We effect far more change when we address ourselves with an open, honest inventory.

Learn to Love Those Who Hate

I am saddened and heartbroken today over the acts of violence in Charlottesville. I sat with the news written on my heart looking for words that could overcome frustration and focus on love and social justice on a deep level. This is what came through when I prayed for the right words.

God calls us to love with compassion, tolerance and acceptance, so we must try to look past acts of hatred and violence to see a person that clearly learned to hate.

No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.

And if these people learned to hate, maybe there is hope for hurting people to learn to love. Hurt people hurt people. Those who breed hate in the heart of others and commit hate crimes are suffering from wounds and misinformed minds that only love can undo.

Self Worth is An Inside Job

When our self worth is staggeringly lower than it should be, we will go out of our way to prove our worthiness by trying to please others, help them, care for them or worse yet, try to fix their problems. Anything to get validation will suffice. But our true worth will never be filled up in soul satisfying ways until we begin to glean our validation from within.

The only validation we will ever truly succeed in garnering is our own. And we will not feel worthy of any such validation until we turn to the true source, God.

God knows we are perfect, whole, worthy and lovable just as we are. And God also knows no ideal weight, or career successes or relationship will be able to make us feel worthy when we are already worthy without any of those things or achievements.

Introductory Coaching Offer

It is up to us to love ourselves, cherish our body (as a sacred temple) and heal our mind. No one will do for us what we cannot do for ourselves.

After a long journey battling poor health and low self-worth, I made the conscious choice to love myself, cherish my body and renew my mind with the power of love.

None of this could happen until I gave myself the space to put myself first and quit burning all my energy on helping, fixing or attempting to change others. At the end of the day, I could only avoid myself and carry on with a tired body and spirit for so long.

Enough Already: How to Choose Peace Over Perfection

Let’s talk about the concept of enough: good enough smart enough pretty enough skinny enough rich enough practical enough.

There can never be enough it seems. We have this insatiable desire in this culture to be enough.

But when is enough, enough? Where do we draw the line and say, Ok, enough already? When have you ever said, “I am good enough?”
