One Day to Rule Them All... and Giveaways Galore!

Hello Gorgeous Heart,

I know I just totally outed myself as a Lord of the Rings fan with that subject line ;) I'm sure you aren't surprised....

Before I get into the FUN, inspiring news of the Giveaways and the exciting countdown to I STAND FOR LOVE DAY, I have to apologize for my mix up last week.

I kinda mashed together steps 2 and 3..

Talking about doing your best (step 2) AND not being too hard on yourself (step 3) as one thing might have confused you... I'll blame it on mercury retrograde, or coming down to the wire with 2019 calendar creation deadline, or all of the above... So sorry if you were like "What's up with that?".

All the info and attachments were for Step 3. Don't be too hard on yourself. I was just calling it Do your best. I think because doing your best means not being too hard on yourself as a practice so they became one in my mind. Ooopsie!

This week we're looking at the real Step 2. Do Your Best

Let's get down to it!

First of all, your best doesn't have anything to do with perfection (remember you already are perfect). This is not some unachievable goal that we're aiming for here. Doing YOUR best, with your unique and beautiful self, means going a little farther in the direction of love than what might be normal for you. Stretching a bit. Striving to create a new level of normal that is just outside your current comfort zone.

Doing your best means being Loving inside and out with a deep commitment to healing, compassion and kindness for yourself and others. It's not as hard as it may sound.

Operating at status quo is not going to create a more loving, healthy world. It’s up to us to set a new standard. Especially if we are living relatively comfortable lives. If we have warmth and food that's something to be grateful for and not something that every being on this planet has the luxury of experiencing right now.

So while we all have our problems, our traumas, our struggles, we are still far better off in our quality of living than so many people. We can still pump up the volume of love just a little more. Because if we don’t do our best, who will?

Read all of step 2 right HERE.

I've said it once, I will say it again, we don't have to do it alone! Like ever. We can do our best together! Cuz we all have good days and bad days. We can take turns, k?

Next Wednesday (8-8-18) is the one day to rule them all (WITH LOVE). It's when we make it public and share our love on social media! It's easy, fun and guaranteed to uplift YOUR heart in the process... Wait til you see how many humans take a stand for love!

The BEST is yet to come!
