✨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

Today is Day 22 of #MoreLoveMarch and it's to kiss someone you love. The whole idea behind more love March is to bring more love into the world. Before the month began, I knew this would be a tough month for not only myself but others. I know the little prompts each day has helped me feel love on days love was the furthest thing from my mind. If you're following along, I hope it's helped you as well. I know for some, this month has been very taxing and challenging. There's so much going on; astrologically, election year and energetically. There are also so many happy times and miracles as well. How could there not be? The world likes balance. For every hurt there is a healing.

 

There's an infinite amount of ways to love and be loved. Don't deny whatever way love comes to you. A hug from a stranger, a kiss from a muddy dog, or the chance to say I love you when you mean it. Don't deny love. Don't turn your back on it. And if you think you don't have love in your life, become that which you want. Easier said than done, I know. Take a moment and write down what's missing in your life, then star what you could do yourself. Think outside the box. And please, to bring balance, write down all the good things in your life. All of what you are grateful for. 

 

Which brings me to today's love tip, kiss often. Kissing is a hug for the lips and the heart. A kiss is a direct connection to parts of ourselves we don't share with others. A kiss on the cheek can chase the blues away. A kiss makes the world a better place.
