✨And on to this week's Love Lesson, using love to establish habits.
✨A few of the students over in the love school have asked about helping with habits. I thought I would make a love lesson to help them as well as anyone else that need some tips for making a habit stick. When we talk about habits we are talking about a lifestyle change in a way. We are switching one way of doing something for something else.
✨We can use love for this. Love is the most powerful energy. Nothing is stronger than love.
✨To make a habit stick, we first need to know our priorities. If something is a priority, we will make the time for it. We will figure out how to make it work. The priority that most people are challenges with is making ourselves a priority. We were taught that's self indulgent or selfish. It's not. All those benefit when we care for ourselves.
✨Why a habit doesn't stick? You either don't love it or it's not a priority. If you don't love be it, find something you love. If it's not a priority, ask yourself why. Something to think about, while you are establishing a habit, something else may be put on the back burner. Once the habit is in place, bring whatever you had to put to the side back in the mix. Look at your priorities and make some decisions. Some of those decisions may be tough.
✨Loving something is the easiest way to make a change in your life. For example, if you're trying to workout more, then find a workout activity that you enjoy. There's so many ways to be active! And there's something for everyone. I sometimes play on a playground. I work my whole body this way and have fun.
✨Time management tricks
✨I set my tomorrow up tonight. Pick 3-5 things you are able to do tonight that will make your day easier tomorrow. For me, it's laying out my clothes, knowing my workout in the morning and knowing my priorities.
✨Next, what are 3-5 things you can do in the am to set yourself up for the day. Mine is make my bed, some form of activity like a workout or yoga and put in a load of laundry.

All jokes aside, perhaps you feel like you're the gardener in the relationship or maybe you feel like you're the flower. Either way, you don't know how to break out of this pattern or you don't want to. Maybe this will give you permission to do so. If you have a harmonious relationship, sometimes it means having your partner take care of you or you taking taking care of your partner.
It's important to do and be both at some point in your relationship. Think back to a time when you really needed a friend and they were there for you no questions asked. Think back to a time you were there for someone no questions asked. It feels good. It's important. And that's community. Your partner is just one part of your community. Take care of each other. Tend to each other. Give each other what they need. And of course, don't forget about your needs.

Do you know about soul contracts and how we have them with everyone we encounterRead More
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 email@example.com
Your health should be your number 1 priority. If you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything. This includes your mental, emotional, Spiritual, financial and physical health. Everything is connected. If you feel good, those around you feel good. If you feel like crap, are moody or unstable those around you are effected. So, if you’re mental, emotional, spiritual, financial and physical health are not at a 100% most likely your Love life isn’t either. Side note. Relationship are not always in harmony all the time.
Don’t fret, it takes self care; checking in with yourself and doing the work that is needed to make sure you’re in good health. It means making yourself a priority. It means being selfish every now and then. It means saying no when you want to say no and asking for something when you need it. It means doing what you need to do even when others don’t agree or find it odd. How many of you want to eat better or work out but have others speaking out against it? I certainly know from experience, I had a mentor say to me years ago, “when are you going to gain weight?” I had been eating really well, exercising and taking care of myself. I felt amazing! But this person was insecure with themselves and most people don’t like others to change. Change scares people. And taking care of yourself is very scary to many. Do it! No matter what others think of you or say. Do what you need to do to feel at your best and healthy self. Let others deal with their insecurities .
Which brings us to today's Love Lesson, Your Health Effects Your Relationship. Do whatever it takes to take care of health.

There have been a few moments in my life when I didn't want to go on living and I contemplated suicide. I have always considered myself a happy person and if I can come to this thought, anyone can. Depression isn't necessary about being sad. There are many reasons for being depressed and many ways to reach suicidal thoughts. Ask for help. Seek help. Suicide hotline; 1-800-273-8255
There’s no shame in this. In fact it takes courage and strength to ask others for help.
You are good. You are worthy. Their is a purpose for your life.

Peace, Love & healing,
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!!!

The key to happiness is so simple. It’s something in theory we are all doing but are we doing it well? I recently read a statistic that showed that the older you are, the happier you are. With 50+ being where people are the happiest and people in their 20s are the least happiest. Why is this? I think it has something to do with the question I posed last week (What if we treated others like they are dying?) plus the question I am posing this week (What if we lived like we are alive). Simple enough right?

Two years ago yesterday I was with my family surrounding my granny in her hospital room. I sat on the edge of her bed as My sisters and I sang a lullaby she used to sing to us as she made her last few breath's. It is a moment I will never forget. Witnessing her final breath and in an instant, I could see she was no longer there. Her soul had left. I looked down at my hand and realized I was holding onto her foot tightly. I didn't want to let go of my granny. For years, almost once a week I would go sit on her bed and we would talk. She wasn't much of a talker and she usually only liked five minute visits from people but with me we would sit for an hour or more talking about life, playing games and she always wanted to hear stories from my love life. She loved my stories and would often say in a delightful way,"oh my crazy grand daughter!"
There is nothing to fear in dying. I don't fear death. I fear those I love not knowing how much I care. I am afraid to not forgive fast because maybe this is my last moment with them. I'm ok with hugging a little longer, saying I love you, forgiving and forgetting. Why? Because life is short and life is precious. People are what matters most.
Today's love lesson is a question, 'what if we treated others like they were dying?'
