LoveFest Day 40

This 40 day journey has been a really great time for me and I’ve developed some amazing habits of self love… with some awesome ah ha moments

Welcome to day 40 of the 40 Day LoveFest!!

What this journey has been for me as an entrepreneurial and happiness coach and consultant has been a way for me to really dig in a little deeper to loving myself more… to develop some habitual practices.

All of our success whether personal, business, relationships, family, all these things can be improved with one simple thing – loving our self more.

We might think “oh, sure, loving myself more is just going to make everything perfect.” But it will SO improve!

Because what happens is that you just let go of the judgements, let go of the complaints, let go of the things that don’t serve you because you’re focused on loving your self more.

Everyday that we can improve our self love, the more love we have to share with others, with our family, with our friends and the more love we will attract to our Self. The law of attraction says that what you think about comes about so if we’re thinking about loving ourselves more, then naturally other people are going to love us too, right? 🙂

I really encourage you to try some of the tools out for yourself; do some things that make you feel good.

I’d like to share a poem written by Kimberly Call, a wholistic living and style consultant from Northern California, and our guest last week on the BlogTalkRadio show .

Each moment is like a small bell
chiming
awakening
are we listening?

And the reason I really resonate with this brief poem is that each moment is that each moment really is all we have. One of my favorite quotes from Rumi, a 13th century Persian poet, “This moment is all there is.”

If right now we can listen, we can hear our inner Self, we can hear what’s inside of us, and we can focus on loving that moment, we can focus on being happy in that moment… it awakens us.

And if we’re listening, then the next moment can be even better.

Sometimes in our busyness, we miss moments. Even during this 40 day lovefest, of course I did have to cancel a couple of shows because of my aunt’s death, but there were two days where I just got into the busyness and missed the call time!!

In the moment that I recognized the awareness of “AHHH I missed the lovefest call!!!!” I got a little dramatic in those moments, then I let it go. I don’t mad at myself about it, I don’t worry about it. I think “well, I so appreciate every listener and I hope they will still love me and be a listener” but I don’t beat myself up about it because what would that accomplish?

If I were to, when that happens, spend a half hour berating myself, saying things like “that was so dumb, how did you do that, how did you miss that?” If I did that, what point would it serve. It would serve nothing. I do apologize to listeners that did log in live and I wasn’t there, but I won’t beat myself up about it. Because in the overall scene of life, it’s just a tiny second and in that moment I can feel the remorse, I can feel sad for a moment that I missed my connection with you, but after that, I let it go…. because

Kimberly’s words are so strong. In just one moment that you’re looking in the mirror as you’re washing your hands and you say “I love you” to yourself. That moment is a little awakening, are we listening, are we paying attention?

In the morning, when we take two minutes a day to be happier and we’re thinking of the three things we’re grateful for. That moment is awakening us, it’s raising our awareness of the power of the good that we have in our life.

And at the end of the day, when we take another quick moment to recognize the accomplishments we had during the day, to recognize and honor our triumphs. That moment of triumph is another awakening. It’s raising our awareness.

Each moment is like a small bell
chiming
awakening
