It takes a lot of courage to love your life.

courage

People are going to tell you that you can’t.

And your inner critics will agree.

You don’t have time.? That there are so many *more important* things that you should be doing.

And you can’t afford it anyway, I mean money is for important things, not for something so frivolous as trying to figure out how to LOVE your LIFE.

PLUS if you somehow magically found the time and money – it wouldn’t work anyway.? Seriously, who actually LOVES their life?? I mean, this is the real world not some fairy tale.? Grow up already.

The status quo is the status quo for a reason.

Sigh.

Well, as you may have guessed, I do love my life.?

And when I think of the status quo frankly I think of people who work in offices who have to go out for drinks after work to try to numb the pain of living in the status quo.

The idea that you can’t create a life you can LOVE is not crazy.? The status quo is crazy.

Here’s the secret: Loving your life doesn’t take what you think it will take.

For so many years, I thought things needed to change before I could love my life (and love mySELF – you don’t actually love one without the other).

  1. I thought I had to make enough money as a creative, to not be a starving artist and not be working at some day job.? I wasn’t sure which one stiffed my creativity more: being broke or having to spend my time at a job that didn’t light me up.? All I knew was I was not happy either way.
  2. I thought I had to be different somehow.? Smarter and more together, prettier, healthier, in better shape, more generous, more successful.?
  3. I definitely thought the people around me had to change.? That they would have to believe in me 100% and support me in my dreams and be nicer and do more of what I wanted them to do and less of what they were doing.

And then, once I had those things, I would most definitely love my life.

BUT these things were all impossible.? So there I was: stuck.

It turns out, I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Though I did sort out #1 on my list, it did NOT happen the way I thought it would.

I spent a lot of time making art and waiting for success to come to me. I assumed that success would just naturally come if I deserved it and that surely I deserved it, so I just kept making art instead of learning how to effectively create a successful creative career.

Once I shifted my approach, it wasn’t long before I had what I wanted.

But I didn’t figure out how to shift my approach until AFTER I gathered up the courage to love my life.

As for #2 and #3 – well they still haven’t changed!

When I think back to the me who needed other people to stop being assholes before she could be happy – well, I don’t know if I want to laugh or cry about that.

When I think back to the me who never felt good enough I definitely do want to cry.

That’s why I do the work I do now.

After learning how to shift out of that I knew I had to share the magic.

In the Love Your Life Creative Journal class I combine effective energy healing with fun, insightful creative journaling prompts plus transformational mandalas for you to colour and adore as you move through the process of falling in love with your life.

You’ll be surprised to discover how many things there are to be delighted about in your life RIGHT NOW!

Class starts this Thursday, June 12.

It’s a heart-first creative healing process about how to love your life from the INSIDE out.

I can show you how to navigate the process.

I can make it fun and creative and magical.

But it’s up to YOU to gather up the courage to begin.? To stop listening to the nay-sayers and the inner (and outer!) critics and make the commitment to your own happiness, joy and well-being.
