Sometimes relationships become lost due the routines of daily life both women and men forget to appreciate one another.
. . Does he love me?💙
. She forgot about me.💙
Before its too late appreciate your mate.💙
Hold their hand. Tell them that you care about them.
Never allow self-doubt to slowly take over.💙
Tell your mate how much you love them with a message a phone call or a letter.
Personalize the thought.
Make it a thoughtful loving gesture.
. Maintain the love💙
. Keep the newness💙
. Appreciate your love & one another.

“I had a bad childhood. I didn’t get gifts for Christmas. I’ve only gotten one or two gifts for Christmas... this is too much. I don’t know how to feel.” -one of the girls @glassslippersacramento 💔
I looked her right in the eyes and told her, “you’re loved, you’re worthy. No one here had to earn these, they’re a gift.” 🎁
It was beyond words being a part of the Christmas party @glassslippersacramento tonight. Vulnerable sharing and daring to say out loud what they want for their life in 10 years. And of course, bags and boxes of gifts from the volunteers. 🎉
For the girls, even if it was only one, you are worth it. 🙌🏼
Jesus comes at Christmas and the story has become so worn, we might miss it. For all the places and times we feel unhinged, unworthy, like a mess—Christmas reminds us you are worthy, you are loved, you only have to receive it.
As the world fights to figure this all out, I'll be letting people cut in front of me in traffic, saying good morning, keeping babies entertained in grocery lines, stopping to talk to someone who looks lonely, tipping generously, calling you by the name on your tag, waving at police, sharing food, giving children a thumbs-up, being patient with sales clerks and smiling at passersby as often as I have the opportunity, buying a total stranger a cup of coffee.
Because? I will not stand idly by and live in a world where unconditional love is invisible.
Join me in showing love, judging less. Find your own way to swing the pendulum in the direction of love.
Be kind to a stranger today and everyday. It just may be a friend you have never met. Pay it forward for any kindness shown to you in the past.
Be the change!
Be the light!

One of my fav Christmas traditions we started when we just had two kiddos...giving a gift to Jesus. We started with giving to Compassion ministries but switched several years back to helping meet needs of people we come in contact with in our daily lives. ❤️This year I am thankful that we can give back even bigger and match our giving to the gifts we spent on our kids and others.
What are your fav Christmas traditions? I’d love to add some new ones!❤️
ACIM Lektion 348, Jag har ingen orsak att känna vrede eller rädsla, för Du omsluter mig. Och i varje behov jag varseblir, är Din nåd allt jag behöver. ✨
”Fader, låt mig komma ihåg att Du är här, och att jag inte är ensam. Evig kärlek omsluter mig. Jag har ingen orsak att känna någonting annat än den fullkomliga frid och glädje som jag delar med Dig.”
- En Kurs i Mirakler
I mig finns friden.
I mig finns kärleken.
I mig finns Källan.
Jag är Källan.
Jag är Gud, som just nu upplever sig själv i denna kropp.
När jag till fullo förstår detta blir det omöjligt att leva i rädsla.
Men låter jag istället rädslan ta överhanden blockeras det naturliga flödet.
Det blockeras eftersom jag låter sådant jag ser på utsidan att styra mina känslor och upplevelser, och således även mina tankar.
Jag låter tillåter på detta vis rädslan, istället för kärleken, att styra mitt liv.
Idag skall jag inte låta denna illusion få styra mer.
Idag står jag i mitt fulla ljus, som den jag i sanning är.
Och jag ser dig, min syster och min broder, för du står i samma ljus tillsammans med mig.
Med kärlek 💜
Recovering from a pretty intense chest cold this week means I fell asleep earlier tonight only to wake up 15 minutes ago & worry that I might be awake all night... Thursday’s 3 is a practice of taking a photo of yourself & posting 3 facts about right now to embrace being present in our own story as we all matter.
Life Around Here Right Now:
1. YTT is at the halfway mark as we break over the Christmas holidays but I am still learning about my self & my practice every day.
2. Remembering to be mindful to take time to Rest as my immune system is never 100 % & I sometimes catch colds easily that take me longer to recuperate from.
3. Love the Magic of the Season but between figuring out family plans & the anniversary of my father’s death many years ago on December 19th makes me feel less celebratory than most in trying to embrace all things Merry & Bright over the Holidays. Looking forward to a New Year full of Magic.
Yesterday I read of the sad passing of a wonderful lady and feel sad the world lost another angel this year! ! No matter what was going on in her life she always shone out - she healed and helped others! She made me laugh in dark days, find calm in the midst of crazy weeks, and centre my body! This year has been so hard for so many people some we don’t even know of because people don’t always share their stuff. Today’s bible reading was so perfect for me it just reads ... be the light on a hill and yesterday a totally unknown person said we need to be be spiritually positive in South Africa and the world. It’s my mission to be that! Be the light, a listening ear, a fun maker, a peace maker, a smile in the street, a hug when unexpected, food for the hungry or unexpected gift. Whatever it is remember to be the light! #LiveYourBestLife#BeTheLight#LiveWithFaith#LiveWithGrace
I was asked to by the artist to take my last post down & in respect I have done so - caption reposted as it is THE most important part 🙏🏻💫💖✨
Especially during this “silly season”! I’m guilty of buckling under the pressure THAT I CREATE FOR MYSELF!! 💫💖✨
How many of you do this too? 🤔 Making sure the festive season is perfect for everyone else & running yourself in to the ground in the process? 😩💫💖✨
I’ve gone inwards & seen I’m creating it - so this year is very pared back & not a rollercoaster of social engagements - this Xmas & New Year will be about doing what feels good for me - because I deserve a break, and I’m gonna cut myself some fucking slack 👌👊💥👊💥💫💖✨
This should be slow season, not silly season 💫💖✨
Repost @astrologyangelmediums with @get_repost
Man, we have been going fucking through it with this year... going at it from all angles, working through our healing, our bs, and our old wounds. This year has been lighting us up like a damn Christmas tree.
No more mediocrity. No more being as it was.
But I want you to pause. Honor your cycles. And cut yourself some major fucking slack, my fam.
We aren't meant to just go and go and go until the day that we drop dead. We need rest and fuel. We must be more like the cycles of our seasons, and we are moving into Winter, as Autumn teaches us to release and shift and allow. We begin to slow down. We begin to have more darkness during the day, so we can honor the deep rest that comes from stillness.
Cut yourself some slack for not starting something faster, for not being able to dedicate as much to a certain goal, for things not unfolding as quickly. It will come. It shall return. But we must ease.
So today, be gentle. Be kind. Be generous with your needs. Treat yo'self to some rest and relaxation. Take a mental break. Take a moment to pause.
I love you. Always. All ways.
By the way: We so fucking got this!

“Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves even when risk disappointing others .”Brene Brown.
In life when we are living based on the expectations and boundaries set by those around us it can seem like we are walking on a very fine line ... Lately in counseling and through my own personal life experiences recently I have been practicing creating and setting my own expectations and boundaries.Which has been so challenging yet liberating! The hardest part has been sharing these with others ... because MAN...I’ve realized there is no better way to offend others when you tell them that what you want isn’t what they want for you 🙄 ! Which is just really silly when you think about it .While going with the flow is grand , there is also such empowerment ,when we go against the norm ,speak our truth and honor our self care by managing our boundaries and expectations.
A little splurge on our babies today because who doesn't love matching Christmas jammies 🎅 😊 🎄⛄
Hubby CRUSHED Christmas for us this year. I'm like a kid myself over here twiddling my thumbs waiting for Christmas morning! Now the money I earn from coaching is just spending money. Splurge money. Extra things for the kids. A couple bucks for Santas Workshop at school. New hoodies for hubby. New clothes or makeup for myself. Whatever we want! •
I have been a stay at home mom for six years and I love every minute if it! (Well, mostly 🤣) I'm blessed to be able to be home with our babies but sometimes mamas get put on the back burner. You run around filling everyone else's cup and forget to fill your own. You might miss the friendships with girls at work and conversations involving things other than Bubble Guppies and fruit snacks. Coaching filled something for me. I've made friendships with women all over the world. I get to do something I love everyday! I squeeze my work into my little mom pockets of the day. Its something for ME that can provide for US.
What do ya say mama . . . . Do you need something to fill your own cup? I have developed a love for health + fitness. Living a life of BALANCE. I encourage other moms to take a little time for themselves everyday. To have the energy and lets face it, the SANITY to be the best moms they can be. I've developed a passion to help other women fulfill their dreams + passions because this changed my life . . . . and I want to help change yours too ❤

This amazing human, Schatzi, is undergoing brain surgery tomorrow for a rare inner ear syndrome. We had a blessing for her tonight and it was so beautiful and full of love. Even Dr. Roger and Erica Teal of our believed Mile Hi Church were in attendance. I am so proud of Schatzi and her bravery, not only for herself but for others around the world. Doctors will be watching and taking notes as only a few of these procedures have been done.
Send good vibes starting tomorrow at 8am MST.

Happy Feast of my patron, and all time favorite saint. Saint Lucy!
Saint Lucy was born in Syracuse, Sicily and was raised by her widowed mother, Eutychia. At an early age, she made a vow of virginity. Unaware of Lucy’s vow, her mother wanted her daughter to marry a man who was not Christian, while Lucy was able to forestall the marriage, Eutychia became ill. Lucy persuaded her mother to go with her to the tomb of St. Agatha at Catania and offer prayers for relief from her ailment. They did so and their prayers were answered. Lucy then told her mother of her desire to devote herself to God in perpetual virginity and to give her fortune to the poor. In gratitude of her healing, Eutychia left her daughter at liberty to do what she wished. Lucy’s suitor was enraged by her decision and Lucy was forced into court. When she remained resolute in her faith, the judge ordered her to be exposed to prostitution in a brothel. With God’s help, Lucy was made unmovable. She was also able to overcome fire and other torments used against her. Lucy’s eyes were plucked out, but restored to her more beautiful than ever before. Around the year 304, Lucy became a martyr through death by a sword.
St. Lucy is the patron saint of blindness and eye problems.
Lucy means light or lucidity.
Saint Lucy, virgin and martyr, pray for us!
Sometimes it can feel like we are going through some awfully dark tunnels. Just remember... Every tunnel has a light at the end. ✨

“Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.” Anne Frank teaches us about the power of a single candle in the dark. This is a very daunting prospect - to shine alone in the dark - but it is important that we understand that often there are many candles - each pushing back against the shade of pending night. So fear not! You are not alone for as we are taught in John 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness did not extinguish it
