This month’s theme is about ‘Where You Are’. Using this, I’ll illustrate why all the things at the bottom of this email tie together and I’ll even explain why I spend every waking hour living it, being it, and helping other people get it.

Surrounded by beauty feels good.

Beauty at home, the places we hang out and the people we’re around. Beauty in our wardrobe mirrors who we are and what we love.

Whoa, that’s a pretty big statement, what we love?

Love is among the most vital business tools that I ever came upon.

Your environment – the people, places and things in your world – will tell you how much you love and value who you are.

Growing courageously enough to love who I am, made me  better at everything and ushered me towards a beautiful life.

By feeling and embodying better self love I would tolerate nothing less than those things that resonate at a high level of joy.

It also meant that if there were objects or people I didn’t love, they needed to be edited out of my life. It took courage to edit those things. Changing required more courage than I thought I had, but love of self would ultimately win.

In business it means having a niche you love, and even more tapping courage to create it. I’m not just everybody’s landscape designer nor am I just any coach. Stepping out and saying ‘Hey, it’s me over here, I’m different and here’s why…’ means that I wake up every morning to ongoing client relationships where lives are being transformed with beauty inside and out and yeah, I love that.

You have to step into the exact nature of who you are to feel truly beautiful, no exceptions.

I love feeling beautiful because I know what the opposite feels like. This week I shared on Instagram my ‘why’ because the lesson of the story was not knowing who you are will lead you to ugly places in life. If you want to watch it, you can find it here, and get tissues ready.

Shifting your world and becoming who you are fully and unapologetically is the reason I believe we are here.

If I can’t see your beauty and who you are you’re being selfish and consequently keeping the world from enjoying your shine.

You’re also making toxic waves around you as a result of not being your truth and that hurts. Hurt people hurt people. They hurt others by not knowing how to nourish themselves and therefore they will inevitably act out with dysfunction trying to get what they need.

I know sometimes it takes mountains of courage to love yourself enough to transform.

That is the beautiful opportunity we get in life and I know a lot of people are hurting because they don’t know how to transform, or that a change is even possible.

Consequently due to lack of courage in the world art isn’t being made, kisses are not given, voices are not being heard, love is not acted upon, and dreams are not attempted.

I’m over it.

So for those who feel a courageous call to transformation, I invite you to create some momentum with my support.

Yes, I’m a transformation coach and designer. As a result I can help you start an inner shift that will end in lasting change and release of pain.

Above all, you deserve to feel beautiful inside and out.

Happy Manifesting!
