1. Do what you say you’re going to do.
2. It’s not about how much raw skill you have, but rather how much hustle you put into obtaining your dreams.
3. Make sure your life decisions are based in love not fear. Love will always take you down the right path.
4. Make time for yourself. You can’t show up for others if you aren’t willing to show up for yourself.
5. Treat others with love and respect always. ▫️
My time in Morocco centered around a yoga and creative arts retreat, and Brittany was the only person who had come on the retreat by herself. While she certainly got to know everyone by the end of the trip, she did a lot of exploring on her own and her choice to come on the journey alone was very intentional. She told me she’d never done anything like that before. Brittany was living in DC but had recently moved to Denver to be close to her mother, who is currently fighting cancer. She’s been putting a lot of effort into being there for her mom and her family, so she was grateful for the chance to recharge. Brittany says that when your cup is full and overflowing you can give to others, but when you’re running on empty you have to take time for yourself to refill. I love Brittany’s wisdom about making decisions out of love, rather than fear. It takes self-reflection, she says, always asking yourself why you’re making the choice you’re making. Taking time for those reflections seems very wise, and I was grateful to spend some time with Brittany during her trip. ▫️
YOU JUST NEED THE RIGHT ARMS.
Sometimes all you need is a hug. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A hug to keep all the stress from eating you from the inside, to make you feel how safe this world could be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A hug to remind you that not everyone is going to be cruel, that some arms are meant for you to find solace in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A hug to make you re-establish the peaceful connection you had once lost, to give you one more reason to kick all that shit and live. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You just need the right arms. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Serenity is sometimes found in others, maybe not completely but for that tiny moment, you will feel your chest dropping a heavy load and your lips uttering a sigh of relief. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It may seem insignificant but perhaps that is all you need to push forward. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A HUG. ⁃ unknown ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"You are terrified because I'm living my truth & singing a song of myself"⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I saw this quote recently & it SANG to me because...when we do these things, we start SHINING! ✨✨✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏻When we start living our life authentically...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏻When we go against the "norm".⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏻When we dare to say no when others say yes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏻When we dare leave situations which are not aligned with our soul or purpose.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏻When we dare speak our truth & take a different route.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏻When we dare stand out.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The thing is....why are we NOT living our lives like this?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are no rules saying we HAVE to follow things a certain way, we just adapt to our surroundings usually.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But I'm not prepared to do that.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I want to live my life doing what sets MY soul on fire & what makes ME happy. ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If that's not aligned with societies 'way' then I'm okay with that!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know there are people around us who WISH they could start shining by following their own intuition rather than following the 'norm' but they're not brave enough. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm here to tell you, YOU ARE BRAVE ENOUGH! You CAN do it!! 🙌🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don't question yourself...you can shine your way & you don't have to answer to anyone!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Are you ready to start shining YOUR way? ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm so proud of you for acknowledging that burning desire to change ht ings inside of you! That's the FIRST & most IMPORTANT step my love. ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's your time to shine & I CAN'T WAIT to see you do so beautiful ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
