Showing Yourself

Some Much Needed Self Love

We all need love and support from ourselves as well as others! It is important to ask for what you need from yourself and others. I know it is not always easy to ask for that assistance, support, love, etc. It matters though for your whole, well being and the well being of others, especially your greatest someones!

This whole pandemic has taught me a few really good things! Balance for one. Second is learning to take it moment by moment. Third is going with the flow even though so not my speed. However, I have learned that going with the flow has its place and purpose when it comes to me living my life day in and day out!

When we start feeling like Chicken Little and the sky falling on his head it is time to pause! Especially when that overwhelmed feeling kicks in and makes us stressed, panicky, frustrated, even angry, etc. Take a much needed “me” break! You will thank yourself for doing it.

A break lets you address what your needs are and that is so powerful in being there and showing up for yourself! Remember to take time and make space for yourself even if it is just for 5-minutes. YOU are SO WORTH IT!

Find Inspiration

What gives you inspiration?

A passage from a book, a poem, an inspirational quote, etc.

I love my deck of “Crazy Sexy Love Notes” from Kris Carr. I can shuffle the deck daily or weekly and post my inspirational card for the day or the week. Talk about an inspirational and supportive message!

Really take in what your eyes land on, what you heart clings to, where your mind takes you, and how your spirit speaks to you!


Bust out the music and break out the dance party! Music is one medium that speaks to your whole being on so many levels. Talk about communicating, connecting and engaging your whole being. Love those songs that just get you tapping your feet and make you smile from head to toe! 

Mirror Talk

I know we all do this, but not something we talk about! You stand in front of a mirror, take yourself in, maybe give yourself affirmations, state an “I love you”, maybe blow yourself a kiss, etc. There is no shame in doing this! True Self Love for Yourself! 


What do you do to energize yourself as well as others?

  • Doing more of what you love.
  • Taking time and making space for yourself.
  • Spending quality time with your greatest someones.
  • Tuning and tapping into that whole mind and body connection.
  • Sharing yourself with yourself and others. Simple gestures of kindness. Thank You! Show your love. Sincere compliments.

It makes the day so much better when putting the positive energy out there! It makes your day and the day of others around your energies and positivity. It makes it easier to give of yourself and your energies. Such an attitude adjuster and mood booster!


Self care is so important to self loving you and your whole, well being!

Do what is best for you and your needs! Explore the “whys” to those needs. Get real with yourself and be true to who you are. That is love!

Do what makes you happy, healthy and well! Get dressed/dolled up just for you. Find your comfy and cozy. Play, laugh, have fun!

Do let go more! Let go of the stress, guilt, perfection, hardness on ourselves, etc. Learn to forgive to love more!

Do you and be true to yourself! Be honest and truthful to yourself and what you need. Make sure to include your mind, heart and gut in all you do, especially in decision making and problem solving. That is self compassion and a love and hug to your whole being!


Getting to the Heart of the Matter

Relationships MATTER!

I recently read an article and it addressed relationship care. I thought to myself what is relationship care. Then I started thinking about how to connect during a pandemic. How technology connects us as well as can disconnect us. Really be with each other when face-to-face as well as virtually!

Think about the time you take to work, exercise, etc. Then think about the time you take with your greatest someones. Is there a good balance or could use a re-balance. 

That meaningful and nurturing time with your greatest someones matters! I really believe it helps with wholeness and balance. It helps with your health and wellness too!

I remember growing up with my group of girls and we could not get enough time together. We spent all day together in school and for hours by phone in the evenings. If we could get together on the weekends for shopping or a movie we made it happen!

As an adult I have those few close relationships where you pick up right where you left off even if it has been days, weeks or months. Also, I tend to nourish and nurture those relationships that are healthy and positive. I really try to not take those relationships for granted either. Those relationships are precious, matter and are a true gift!

With your relationships you may see an improvement in the quality of your life as well as your health and wellness! Especially in communicating and engaging. In connecting and deepening those relationships. Making the time to continue to build, grow and expand those relationships!

That nurturing of our relationships helps us nourish ourselves and our well being as well as others and their well being! It is another form of self care. It can be enriching and boosting to your whole being!

We are humans that crave connection and engagement. We are humans that want to belong to something other than ourselves. We are social beings living in a tech world.

There is nothing better than making time to spend quality time with family and friends! You do not need to spend monies either. The simplest things are totally satisfying and make your day better. That is the love and support we all crave! 

  • Gathering and sharing a meal.
  • Catching up, sharing and laughing.
  • Caring and supporting by being there, thinking about them, etc.

That landscape has changed a bit with the pandemic. However, a lot of people are getting creative with the virtual and making time to gather and share! 

We all do our best to live well! To be kind and generous. To be compassionate and care. To just be genuine and be who we are!
