LoveBlog -Freedom

✨Freedom✨

Years ago, my friend Doug Smith planted the freedom seed within me. Over a decade ago he was making moves to be able to work from anywhere with his business True Nutrition . This inspired me. About five years ago, I also began moving toward that type of occupational freedom. I wanted to be able to work from anywhere and to be with those I love, to travel freely and not be tied to just one spot. 

Now I have that freedom. I can be anywhere in the world, do what I love and contribute. I work every day and a few times a week, I wash my hair, throw it in rollers and plug away just like this. This is what I look like behind the scenes.  I work from my bed when I'm home because my cat Jack will climb all over me if I work from a desk. So I brought the desk to the bed. He lays on my lap or beside me and I work away. I love it! Plus, the bed is where I get all my good ideas 💕

Last year I was able to pack myself and Jack up and help my family. While my mother was in the hospital, I was able to be with her and not think about an office I would have to get back to. Being with her during that time, and then having that freedom in the first few months of mourning her, was such a blessing. So many people don't have that luxury to really dig deep into their grief. I remember getting off the phone with a new client and then bursting into tears. I was alone with my cat.  I could break down completely, then slowly put myself back together and go back to work when I felt ready to. 

My office is always with me. In the coming months I'll be moving back to San Diego, but I’ll always have time for Nantucket. People ask, "what will you do out there?". 

And my reply, "Same thing I'm doing now"! 

Working from anywhere does have its challenges. I wake up and I start working. This isn't so much a challenge per se because I love what I do, but the boundaries are not quite clear. There are also days I'm not motivated and if you work from home or have your own business you need to stay motivated. No one is going to cover me or do the work for me. I am 100% responsible. Freedom is precious.💕

One of my gigs that allows me to work from anywhere is with a great company called @tawkify. I'm a matchmaker with them. If you're interested in learning more about being a matchmaker, direct message me and we can chat. If you're into love and helping people, this will be perfect for you! 

I have spaces left for The Love School Feedback group. You'll have access to The Love School for life as well as a bunch of great goodies! Email me if you're interested dorothy@dorothydstover.com

LoveBlog - Free healing/prayer sign up & new Love Lesson - Forgive them, they don't understand

I recorded this week's love lesson while my mom was in the hospital almost two months ago. Actually, I have this video and two others I will be posting in the coming weeks. All recorded during this time. I didn't get around to posting them because my focus was on my mom and I couldn't quite wrap my head around much.

My mom has since passed and now more than ever I need my own love lessons.

We are each walking a path that no one can walk for us. No one can learn the lessons we need to learn. We certainly can help each other as well as give advice and guidance but we can't live life for someone else nor can others live life for us.

With that said, people won't know or understand where we have come from or our current circumstances because they are not us. They may have walked a similar path and have some form of understanding. It will never be exactly the same. Why? Because no two people are exactly the same. We all have different experiences and perspectives. It's neither good nor bad. It does make for miscommunication and misunderstandings. It also makes for an opportunity to forgive because not everyone is going to be there for you the way you would like them to be. Not everyone will react to a situation the want you expect them to react. Not everyone will process the same way you process. This can be frustrating. So forgive. Let it go. Their path is not your path. Challenging to say the least. I understand it full well having been through the time in the hospital with my mom and now grieving. People, including myself, say stupid things that don't make sense.  My mother always taught me no two people grieve the same. I'll take that further, no two people see the same way. 

I wrote last week how prayers and healings really helped my mom and how I would like to turn my grief into love and honor for her. Each week people are able to sign up for their prayers and healings here. It's free. Lay down in a comfortable space at 9pm every Tuesday. Be open to receive the healing and prayers. http://www.dorothydstover.com/healingprayers/

LoveBlog - Unleashing your sexual goddess & my favorite sex toys

Before the LoveBlog, I used to have a weekly column called Freaky Friday on the Nantucket Chronicle.  I loved when people would write in asking their love and sex questions.  Sex is so taboo.  We are suppose to keep everything so quiet.  And while I of course love mystery and I believe we don’t have everything, I do believe we are doing ourselves a disservice by not having an open dialog when it comes to sexuality.  Because we do not have an open dialog about sex, I see people acting out and not understanding and respecting sex and their own sexual selves.

Hands down the best sex is sex that includes love and connection.  It could be the connection to ourselves or a partner.  When love and connection are involved with sex, the world makes sense.  We are better humans.  We have better relationships.  We have a healthier self. 

Today’s love lesson episode is a little tip for unleashing your sexual goddess and two of my favorite sex toys.  I love love love these toys!

Full disclosure I am not being paid for my review.  I love these toys so much, I have since gotten rid of all of my other toys.  These are just so perfect!!!

Loveblog - Don't enter into a relationship until you have this first.

If your number 1 priority in life is your significant other you're liable to feel the following; unappreciated, lack of love, unbalanced, a feeling as though you have lost who you are and last but not least, drained.

Why? Because your number one priority should be yourself.  You should come before anything else; family, work, your significant other. You matter. You should be number 1. It's not selfish, it's common sense. If you're not feeling healthy and whole, you're not available for your family, friends, work or a relationship. If you keep giving yourself away, you'll have nothing left. Love should flow to and from you. Sometimes love doesn't come from others the way we would like it to. This is why it's important to love ourselves and understand we need to give ourselves the love we need and not rely on others to do it for us. 

In a month or so I will be launching my first course of my love school. The course will be a love 101 class, helping you gain a deeper relationship with your self and others so that you can attracted a deeper romantic relationship.If you would like to be notified of when these Love Lessons and the launch of the love school,  plus I give special treatment to those whom are subscribed to the Love Letter, join here, http://eepurl.com/bFrkfn.

LoveBlog - Love Is A Choice

My great grandfather Murphy said "Love is a choice. Everyday you wake up and choose love". I like to think I am carrying his words on. I like to think I choose love everyday. I don't always. He was talking about marriage and making that choice of love in your marriage and that it needs to be made everyday. I have extended that to make the love choice everyday in every eay, not just romantic love. It's not always easy but when I do connect with my heart, I'm happier. I see for my clients that when they come from this space, they too are happier. 

Do you think you could make the love choice or at least strive to? When you're at the grocery store and someone takes your spot, will you choose love?  When someone posts something on social media and it offends you, will you choose love?  When someone you love doesn't love you the way you want to be loved, will you choose love?

There are lots of examples, challenging examples of choosing love. It's not always the easiest choice to make but it's the one that leads to a better world and a happier self.

It's also ok if you're like me and sometimes you stumble, yell and choose fear. We are human. I keep reminding myself after I stumble to realign myself with who I really am in my heart, mind and body...and that is love. And so are you. You are love.
