Q & A
What was the number one thing that was holding you back from accepting self love?
Fear. Fear of being unlovable. Fear of being not good enough.
Who is one person who has changed your life for the better?
What is the best advice you have ever received?
What is a self care habit that you practice regularly?
Walks in nature.
Do you have a favorite quote?
“I have already settled it for myself so flattery and criticism go down the same drain and I am quite free.” Georgia O’Keefe.
Can you share with us a resource or an app that we can use to help our own self care practice grow?
The “Think Dirty” App. It’s a great way to start taking record of “what am I doing with my body and my surroundings?” The app rates your makeup, your cleaning products, etc. You scan the bar code and it tells you how toxic or chemical free any product is.
What book are you reading right now?
What is the one thing that you are most passionate about?
Waking people the fuck up to realize they are so amazing, so magical, so powerful, so beautiful, that if they just have the courage to spread their wings and fly, that they will go beyond their wildest dreams. And that magic and synchronicity and just fucking beauty will enter into their lives so effortlessly. It’s already there. You just need the eyes to see it. And my hope is that, by me living that, by me showing up every day in joy and happy, and yeah, shit happens, but how quick can you get back to peacefulness. “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” so I show up peaceful. I show up passionate. I show up loving. I show up caring. And I feel like if I do that, then it might just inspire someone else to do it for themselves. And if we all do it, you know, world peace.
