I believe that as we take responsibility for truly deeply madly loving ourselves we have: less fear, less judgment, less disapproval, less abuse, more compassion, more trust, more joy, more delight, more space, more possibilities, more common ground, more jobs, more healing, more flow, more health, more integrity, more support,...

Thinking about Komen Foundation...If you hate/fear parts of yourself, you hate/fear others. We don't need more hate in this world. Love yourself up, embrace all those juicy imperfections, see the beauty in difference, find common ground and let's move on from being small minded-close hearted peeps to showering more love...

I remember when I was growing up, the other kids would tell me that they hated going to basketball or lacrosse practice, but their parents had taught them not to be quitters so they just toughed it out. I was always totally mystified by this. I had tried and quit... Continue reading

via goodmenproject.com I love this perspective. For years I thought I was too sensitive. In reality, I wasn't valuing myself or taking a step back to look at the other person's behavior. I have freed myself from believing that the way we were conditioned to behave means its the "right... Continue reading

I've been thinking about and researching permission quite a bit lately. Permission to nap, permission to end a sentence in 'to', permission to love people.com, permission to be perfectly-imperfect, permission to be sensitive, emotional, nurturing. I like it.
