Loving Your Own Soul or #LYOSLife, as I’ve created it, is a mindful exploration to living a more fluid life with a deeper connection to the soul. The process of not only loving yourself but diving deep and pulling back the layers, so that you can truly the appreciate the beautiful soul inside of your human body.
And, it was from that day forward I promised myself that we would no longer take life so seriously, we’d have more fun, we’d let go, and we’d dive deep inside of ourselves so as to not only heal on an inner and outer level, but we’d focus on what our purpose in this lifetime is. We’d trust our intuition, lead by the power of the Universe and do more of what we love (no matter what anyone else thinks).
This journey may bring about a lot of things such as recipes, sharing of healing procedures, sharing of various spiritual practices, wellness routines, contemplated thoughts spoken from the soul, a podcast down the road, a coaching program, e-books, cookbooks, books, speaking engagements and so much more! However, as I work on judging myself less, beating the limiting thoughts in my head, and my fears of other’s opinions; I ask that if you choose to follow this journey, you do so without judgement of me as well.
I do welcome all suggestions, questions, comments, engaging conversations, and words of encouragement to this space. I simply ask that any negativity or limiting beliefs towards myself that you carry, are kept inside of you or released elsewhere. If you do not respect this outlet that I’m creating, you have a choice to disconnect and not follow along. It is my hope that if you carry these feelings, you respect yourself enough to not engage in something you don’t connect with. After all we should all be more compassionate towards our intuitions. <3
Ps. For those of you who have known me for a while, yes, I’ve tiptoed down this road before in different, yet similar capacities. However out of fear, I stopped, retracted, and second guessed every single move that I was making. I never gave myself the time or energy to fully see where it could go, and while I wish I could turn back time and would have seen it through, I also believe that what is in me has never left me. There is always a greater, more divine plan in place for all of us. They say timing is everything right?

The last time I posted, I was taking off to a new part of the world. A part of the world that brought more actualization and a calming security to my life than I can describe. I will share my journey in the "Travels" section in just a few days.
However, something special happened this afternoon and its not the first special moment that has happened this year. But it was a moment that I came to terms with the day prior but only truly realized that the decision belonged to me (and solely me) this afternoon.
One of the greatest parts of life is when you inspire someone without the intention of inspiring them. Life can be pretty humorously sweet sometimes can’t it?
To have your own mom (who I will always look up to and love more than life itself) tell you that your younger brother called you his “role model and hopes to love a girl with your same values and outlook on life one day,” is probably one of the most fulfilling feelings in the world.
It was one of the proudest moments of my life so far. Like a proud mama bear watching her young take on the world. The serendipitous part of the story was the day, time and current state of my own life in which I learned this news.
We aren’t always able to give a reason to everything but we can shout out a huge THANK YOU after the fact.
It’s a beautiful feeling to think that while I am figuring out my own life (spoiler alert: I still have a long way to go), I am also unconsciously inspiring someone around me. My own “learned” words, actions and philosophies on living an amazing life, inspired someone else’s life. And not just anyone, but the one in my life to which it is my duty to lead and guide through life; my younger brother.
Taking the situation one step further, is identifying the circumstance of the situation. For this information came into my life during a time when I was experiencing my own self-doubt. Now that is what I like to call cause and effect, serendipity, love and just living a fluid life.
Being true myself, digging deep and trying to understand what tugs at my heart vs. what sends me down a dark spiraling hole in life, was a process that my younger brother was watching and taking notes on. It left him feeling inspired with the notion to push forward and strive for the things he wants in life. And in return his acceptance and acknowledgement turned right back around and pushed me forward; bringing immense clarity to a moment in life that I was deeply struggling with. That is what I like to call a spiritual win- win.
And no I don’t think Stephen Covey talked about “spiritual win-wins” in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, but I do believe they exist.
What is even more special about this win-win situation was that the situation occurred without either person trying to make it occur. It simply happened.
The beauty of life will forever be enchanting and a constant lesson and revelation. Once you can welcome the unexpected, have faith in the people, reasons, seasons and circumstances in life; you too can breath and move further down the road your soul is meant to find. The greater gift is that your adventure is in return, inspiring and bringing light to those around you…making the world a better place.
And at the end of it all, remember to stay grateful and shout THANK YOU out into the world around you.
