I want so much for you

I want you to live a life where you feel so connected to yourself, so centered in your truth, and so filled up by self-love that you no longer seek outside of yourself for happiness.

I want you to experience the sense of peace and freedom and grace that comes from the realization that you are not your thoughts – gasp! And instead realize you are the thinker and therefore can choose which thoughts to believe, choose, and act on.

I want for you to discover all of the places in you that keep you guarded and defended against deep connection so you can love more fiercely and connect more authentically to those in your life.

I want you to be an amazing role model for your kids – not because you are perfect, but because you are real and that you are modeling a life of personal growth and learning to connect with yourself and others, to be a truth seeker, and to value yourself enough that you continue to get to know, accept, and love yourself each and every day of your life.

I want you to embrace life and learn to live each moment without abandon (and without the need for external approval).

I want you to ditch guilt, worry, and self-sacrifice and replace it with curiosity, well-being, service, love, and compassion.

I want you to see life as happening for you, rather than to you. See life’s circumstances, difficult people, and adversities as opportunities to learn, accept, grow, heal, and awaken.

I want you to remember that forgiveness is for you not for the other person.

When we step away from the chaos and pressure to conform, we can find that place inside us where it is still and we can get centered in a place where everything really is okay. I want you to lead from that place. I want you to live from that place.

I want you to feel so much love in your heart that it’s impossible for it not to spill over into other people’s lives.

I want you to give what you wish to receive and be grateful for what you already have.

I want you to feel what it feels like to love yourself, to feel compassion towards yourself and to believe you are enough.

I want you to slow down to appreciate your life and sit in the enough-ness of it all.

Much love to you,
