It’s NOT All About You (or me), Love…

Welcome to Part 3 of my short series: ‘Life’s Beauty Lessons.’ A couple of months ago, I returned Home to Virginia to — not only visit my parents — but also my high school. These visits Home always touch my heart, where I rekindle the love + wonder of my childhood. This time, it also brought up huge ahas for my ego and spirit…”

In the last two weeks, we learned the one tool to use to boost Popularity + Love in your life, and the one powerful secret to getting over the dreaded Nerves! Here’s where it all comes together…

As I stood up at the podium to announce the winners, I started with a bit of stalling-talk.

“Hi! Thank you so much for having us. We’re so sorry to keep everyone waiting for so long… It really was such a difficult decision. Everyone did a FANTASTIC job!…”

Oh, and I kept going.

I felt like I was having an outer body experience as the energy within me heightened, and I was buzzing while connecting with the audience.

Then it hit me.

One Powerful Secret to Getting Over NERVES!

Last week I talked about Popularity + Love, and ONE tool you can use to oomph your magnetism! If you haven’t read that post, read it now! This next tool builds on that and works best when you have that action down!

Nerves.

You wouldn’t think that someone who absolutely LOVES musical theatre and doing it would have a problem with nervousness. But somewhere I heard that if a performer doesn’t feel nervous before going out on stage, s/he’s no longer “ALIVE.”

But what happens when it takes over and all you can think about is the people watching you? Whether you are actually on stage or just within a small group — or even one person?

Popularity + Love: Life’s Beauty Lessons

Raise your hand if you grew up wanting to be “popular.” Maybe some of you were popular in school. And maybe even fewer of you rejected the entire idea and wanted to stay away from that crowd.

Being UN-popular, popular, or a misfit is all fine, good and meant to be a part of your path.

Living Your Life with Purpose

IMG_3962In the moment that I write this, I have my own spiritual retreat! I’m sitting on our living room couch, screen door wide open, listening to my fairy wind-chimes sing as the winds rush by. Windy conditions are rare in Burbank, and I’m soaking up each glorious second!

Gorgeous souls I’ve encountered have described me as “peaceful” and “zen.” Up until 7 years ago, the closest description I would have gotten would’ve been “nice” or “quiet,” and while that’s just fine and dandy, they’re not quite the same as “peaceful” or “zen,” are they? :)

Before living with purpose – in my true authenticity, I may not have always expressed it (except to close loved-ones), but my world was full of CHAOS, ups and downs: fun and exploration hopping from one city to the next, love, stress, worry, getting annoyed/depressed/seriously pissed off at the tiny details gone wrong, wondering what was going to hit me next… Sound familiar?

Life – especially today – can be chaotic! There are so many distractions surrounding us, and if we don’t take that time for self-care, recognizing the good within and in front of us right now, or simply listening to our inner guidance, those distractions can take over our lives and how we are meant to live in complete authenticity.
