You’re upset. You’re hurt. You’re angry and annoyed. Heck…you’re downright furious…livid even. And you act like it; yelling and screaming at the top of your lungs…acting like a crazy woman. You argue back, interrupt and interject. You got your finger pointing, spit flying, neck rolling…. You aren’t even making any sense. Or, you’re crying hysterically because…he left. Or he cheated. Same thing. Snot leaking down to your top lip, you think you’ll never love again, or be made a fool of again, or give it up so easily again. You start to eat–or stop eating completely. You sleep all the time–or don’t sleep at all. You don’t know if you are coming or going.

I’ve noticed three things about myself when I can’t even pray: 1) I’m all “in my feelings,” 2) I’m so incredibly focused on the problem, and 3) my body starts acting up: either I have aches and pains, or I gain or lose weight.
So, what do I do then?
Welcome to The 29-Day Love Challenge! If we were asked if we love ourselves, so many of us would say, with attitude, “Of course I love myself!

So, since February is known for being the month of love, I challenge you to show love everyday, that’s ev-er-ree day, for the full 29 days in this February! Can you do it? Are you in? [Read more…]
I know that I am not at the highest level I am destined to be at, so when I think about who I am at that higher level and connect with her/me, my higher self commands certain things of me now.
