The Gift of Unconditional Love

The Gift of Unconditional Love

It’s Time To Stretch Your Soul

The grand, beautiful paradox of this special, sacred time of year is that it pulls for the best in us — while giving us opportunities to be at our worst. The result can be something beautiful: Unconditional love.

The holidays put us in a state of generosity, and bring us back to the touchstone of faith and meaning. Ramping up to the New Year makes us think about who we want to become in the future. This time of year also provides us with unique stressors and potentially challenging relational moments. All of which conspire together to make this the perfect time of year to cultivate the practice of  unconditional love.

In the near future, you will likely have magical, meaningful moments with cherished friends and family. If you’re like most people, some of these experiences will also be disappointing, annoying, frustrating, or even hurtful. All of these are cross-roads moments where you can choose judgment or empathy; contempt or compassion; anger or acceptance; grudge-holding or forgiveness.

It’s easy to love when your ego is stroked, when you feel gratified, and when you’re awash in pleasurable “loving” feelings. But the heart of every great religion teaches us that our purpose here is something else: To love when it’s hard.

Here’s what I’ve learned over the years about the transformational power of love, and some simple strategies you can use to cultivate unconditional love, tolerance and acceptance in your life — both through the holiday season, and in the new year ahead.

May peace and love be with you in 2018.

How to Be a Force of Good in The World

How to Be a Force of Good in The World

Your efforts matter more than you know…

In the special space that exists between the end of one year and the start of another, we have time to pause. To rest. To reflect. For many, it’s the time of year when we think about who we were and what we learned in the previous year, and set our sights on who we want to be and what we want accomplish in the next. We’re releasing our old selves, and getting ready to embrace fresh, new incarnations.

As a life coach, I’m all about helping you achieve your goals and make great things happen in your life. But today, on this episode of the Love, Happiness and Success podcast I’m taking advantage of this “quiet time” to tell you a little story about the kinds of powerful and amazing things that can happen when we set our intention on something even larger than our own personal gain: being a force of good in the world.

I believe that everything we do reverberates into the lives of others, to a greater extent than we even know. When you are radiating compassion, empathy and kindness, it has an impact. As you reflect on your life this past year, and set your goals for the next, I hope that this personal story inspires you to also never forget how important you are and how even the littlest things you do can have a profoundly positive impact on the lives of others.

As you create your intentions for this coming year I hope that you carry this idea with you, and that it helps you become a powerful force of good in this troubled world.

Wishing you all good things in 2017…
