I love LOVE! 💗
Besides the human emotion of love, I believe Love is also the state of being of the Divine Consciousness/God/Universe/Source (however you name it) and it’s the state of being of our own souls.
This belief allows me to connect to my pure loving soul to others here on Earth in a way that rises above our human judgements and comparisons. When I simply tap into that pure state of Love, everything else melts away. It allows for forgiveness and grace, compassion and understanding, strength and resilience, confidence and excitement, inspiration and joy, all of my favorite emotions. Without this foundation of Love, I would be lost and feeling nothing.
I’m pretty sure you would agree it feels amazing to feel love and you want to feel it more often. If that’s true, good news! You get to feel love anytime you want! How?
Get still with yourself, take long, deep breaths, and really let the weight of your mind’s busyness fall away. Think about the people, places, experiences that you love and why. Think about all of the things you love about yourself.
You do not have to wait for anyone to do or say anything in order for you to feel loved. You are loved exactly as you are, in this very moment, simply because you exist. You had to be loved enough to be created and birthed and here you are! You’re loved! Period.
Tap into Love today, no matter your circumstances, no matter what anyone says or does, YOU get to feel the love.
Let it flow in and out to all the people you know and see just how amazing you feel!
“Apathy is a lack of feeling, emotion, interest, or concern about something. Apathy is a state of indifference, or the suppression of emotions such as concern, excitement, motivation, or passion.”
Being in this state is what depression feels like for me. When I was depressed, it wasn’t so much that I was overly sad all the time, it was that I just didn’t care anymore. Like, I wondered why I was even still living. I started to think about ways that I could end it. This was before I learned about thought-management and life coaching. Once I learned that our thoughts create emotions and emotions drive actions, and actions create our results, or reality, I realized I didn’t have to feel like this forever. That maybe life could be worth living if I could decide how to feel. BOOM. Wonderful news!
I learned how to process emotions on purpose and not avoid them. I learned how to sit with myself and be okay with not being okay. I learned to accept myself as I was instead of loathe myself and my whole life. I started to look at my thinking. I started to become very aware of the goings on in my head and was shocked at how ugly I was speaking to myself. I was making myself feel terrible!
They say the opposite of LOVE isn’t hate, but indifference, and I understand this at the deepest level. This state of apathy or indifference is a place I never want to revisit. I WANT to feel all the feelings life has to offer. The amazing, positive, mushy ones AND the hard, negative, ones because that is the human experience. Otherwise, there’s no point in living. When we can live from a grounded foundation of love, and we are willing to feel any emotion, we guard ourselves against apathy, indifference, and depression. We accept what is with love and grace.
If you’re feeling “meh” more often than not, if you’re feeling like you’re going through the motions and don’t really care, or worse, that maybe life isn’t worth living anymore, I urge you to reach out to someone and ask for help. I am forever grateful for my coach for pulling me out of this state with the empowering knowledge that my life experience is up to me.

Have you ever felt despair? That feeling that there’s no hope left. There’s nothing to be happy or joyful about.
With thoughts like…There’s no use.If I try, it won’t make a difference.Because this happened, I’m so sad. My son will never sleep through the night.My husband doesn’t get me.She’s not on my side.Nothing goes my way.
These thoughts are so painful to think and we tend to believe them as absolute truth. We feel terrible. We feel miserable.
But what if they’re not true? Just because you’ve thought these thoughts over and over doesn’t make them absolutely true. Can you believe that just maybe they’re not true? Just maybe your spouse is on your side. That your child will actually sleep through the night at some point? That things really do happen for you and not against you?
Start to look for evidence in the world that proves these new thoughts true.
The truth is that there is always hope. There is always something to be grateful for. You can’t fee gratitude and despair at the same time.
If you are arguing with me in your head and want to tell me a story to prove your despair, write it all down. Write out all the thoughts and line by line start to question each one.

Who doesn’t want more JOY in their lives???
I love the emotion of joy. To me, this feels different and deeper than happiness. Happiness seems fleeting and joy is sustaining.
I live with an inner joy now that I didn’t always have. I used to live with inner apathy and outside happiness. People pleasing my way through life hoping someone would approve of me enough so I could feel good about myself.
Through a lot of thought work, coaching, and meditation, I have this long-lasting, foundational sense of joy that I get to live this amazing life.
Joy, an emotion, is of course created by my thoughts about my life. I now believe that my whole life is amazing, including the dark and light, the half positive and half negative, the contrast.
These beliefs were created by simply practicing new thoughts I hadn’t yet thought were true. I practiced every day. I journaled. I listened to podcasts, read books, and got a lot of coaching to re-wire my brain. Now, JOY is my default instead of apathy and indifference.
Do you want to feel more joy? What is your default emotion? Did you know you can change it?
