Retreat to Move Forward

Every morning this week, this was the view as I stepped out of my villa. Eat Play Love in Puerto Rico was an amazing experience filled with beautiful participants that were even more amazing than the views. Getting away from it all (with spotty internet), made me recognize so clearly our tendency to move at lightning speed and intense direction without pause.

How often do we step back and appreciate what's around us? Even if it isn't palm trees and beaches, there is beauty to take in everywhere.

Allow yourself to enjoy the journey. Life isn't about a specific destination, but what we learn along the way. Goals are amazing. They keep us on our path, give us hope, and create motivation. However high your goals are, never lose sight of the lessons along the way. Take a minute to retreat. Observe. Appreciate.

I'll be spending the rest of my night journalling the lessons that I have learned this week. My goals are high and plentiful, but the ride to get there is just as important.

Sending you so much love and light!

Lessons in Love from Moms

Happy Mother's Day! I love holidays like today. Days that make us take a moment to reflect on the people in our lives that have helped shape who we are, and teach us important life lessons. Moms have a tough gig. No pay, long hours, and tons of stress. Spending the day recognizing the moms in your life (or yourself!) is a great way to give back to those who give so much.

Moms also have a lot to teach us about love and relationships. While you are celebrating the moms around you, think about these lessons as well:

▪ Prioritize. A mother often puts her children's needs first. What can she do to make sure her kids are happy? What makes her kids feel safe? How can she give them the best life possible? Taking even a smidge of this selflessness into your relationships, can make your partner feel like the center of the universe. ▪ Love unconditionally. Moms love their children in a way that transcends reality. They don't keep track of times when they've felt slighted. Moms love regardless of what their children can offer in return. What would change if you loved like a mom? Without judgement? Love without limits. ▪ Love yourself like a mom would. Throughout my life, my mother has attempted to convince me that I am the most amazing person in the universe. She would never settle for second best for me, and because of that, neither will I. Love yourself like a mom. Value yourself as a mom would. Hold yourself up on a pedestal and bring that self love and self value into your relationships.

Have an amazing day, and go tell a mom how awesome they are!
