There's no one way.

In the past few weeks, I've worked with those that believed there was one way to meditate, one way to date, one way to do business, one way to *LIVE*.

Nope. Not even close. How could there be only one option when we are so intricately different?We all have different messages and modalities that resonate. Some may read my messages and have an "ah ha!" moment, while others may be unmoved. It's cool, it's all part of the reason why humanity is so magical.

I have many flaws, but the one attribute I have that I am extremely proud of is that I follow the path that I pave.

I work in a way that feels good to me. I meditate and workout the way that resonates (which means often skipping the workout - shhhh, our little secret...). I love the way I want to love.

Are they perfect methods? Definitely not for the entirety of the population, but they are perfect for me.

The next time you think "I must be doing this wrong", pause and ask yourself "Am I doing this the way I think I am supposed to or the way that feels good to me?" Only you can determine what works, and trust me, you'll know it when you find it because it will be easy,

Sending you love.

Why Are You Thankful?

It's Thanksgiving week here in the US. As we all get ready to stuff ourselves silly on turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie (mmmmm....pumpkin pie), I am so grateful for the ever present and ever necessary reminder to give thanks. In our lives it is easy to run on autopilot, to focus on the things we want to change as opposed to the things that should stay the same, and to suffer from a case of the "only ifs". This week, to me, is about slowing down. It's about taking time to smell the roses (or pumpkin pie) and to count of all of my blessings. It's about taking account of every aspect of my life that makes me happy, and appreciating all of the massive gifts I have been given. Do I still want to do more, be more, and achieve more? Sure. However, I won't appreciate where I am going if I don't feel thankful for where I am. What are you thankful for?

Who are you thankful for?

What can you do this week to slow down and take note of all the amazingness in your life?

I would love to encourage you to start a gratitude journal. Even if it is just for the week, spend 5 minutes every morning to make a list of the things you are thankful for. It could be as simple as a great cup of coffee, or as deep as your most meaningful relationship. Writing down what you are grateful for gives those feelings power. Keeping track of the things you are thankful for on a regular basis can help to give you perspective when you feel that your life would be amazing....only if ________.

Have an awesome Thanksgiving. Eat up that pumpkin pie, and give thanks.
