The Real You

Listen to the passion of your soul, set the wings of your spirit free; and let not a single song go unsung. – Sylvana Rossetti

Throughout my journey of helping women, I have found that the majority of women are so caught up in their busy lives they’ve forgotten who they truly, authentically are.  We as women are so identified with our roles and responsibilities… as mothers, wives, caretakers, career women, etc.  In living all these different roles, we can easily lose track of ourselves and oftentimes, forget who we are beyond the roles themselves.  If you think about it, most of us  even change our name when we get married, and in an instant our identity is changed in some form.  No wonder we lose our sense of self sometimes!  It can be quite confusing at times for sure.

So, stop… take a deep breath, think back, and ask yourself these simple questions –  Do you remember who you wanted to be? What you dreampt of becoming one day?  Are you that person? Are you living that dream? Remember what’s most important in your life… hold on to those long lost hopes and dreams.  Discover or rediscover your authentic identity and reclaim the woman you are in your soul, behind all the roles. That doesn’t mean giving up your roles and responsibilities – it  means reclaiming what is deep within you and embracing the meaning of your life – not  simply the meaning of life.

What makes your soul shine?  The time to answer that question is NOW!  You’re SO here… it’s time to live life to the ultimate! What are you waiting for?

Love Me Knots

 

 

LOVE ME KNOT:
“A union of spirits, an offering of love, a bond of infinite value and enduring ties,  lifting two souls to the sacred meeting place between heaven and earth” – Carrie Flintom, Pam Rundquist

A knot is a compact interlacing which ties and bonds two strands of materials together.  A knot can weave two single threads together into something so strong that nothing can ever break its strength.  To tie a simple knot is an uncomplicated process to learn, yet it is crucial in holding together even the most priceless and extraordinary things.  There are countless types of knots, but they are always used to tie or hold something together in a unifying bond. 

Now take that idea of a knot and all it’s purpose, and turn it into a  Love Knot.”  A Love Knot is an act of love and caring directed at another human being. By freely giving Love Knots to another person, we literally fold our spiritual arms around them through our words and deeds.  With every small knot we tie, we strengthen the bonds of kinship. The more knots we tie, the stronger the connection.  The process is eternally ongoing. 

As you go through your day, think of giving “Love knots” to tie together the bonds of those around you. The opportunties to tie “love knots” are everywhere! Trust that with each knot you tie, you are strengthening the connection to another person as well as yourself.

Here are just a few suggestions to get you started!
