✨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 - How To Have A Great Date Everytime

As a matchmaker, and a love and dating coach I hear people's complaints about the dating world on a daily basis.  It's rough out there. But the truth is, it has always been. Dating is always changing and evolving and has been since the dawn of time. How does one have a great date no matter what? Change your perspective. Ask yourself these questions while on the date:

1. Who is this person? Don't look at them as if you're going to be in a relationship with them long term. Consider them a person who has a story. Get to know that story. You can fall in love with anyone if you know their story, and it truly resonates with you. But, I'm not asking you to fall in love. I'm asking you to look at them in a different way.
After the date ask yourself this question:
2. What can I learn from this experience? You can learn something from everything and everyone. We are on this planet to experience people, places, and things, and to grow and learn. Every moment is an opportunity to do so. Dating is a huge way to grow and learn. In fact, it is sometimes the terrible dates that can teach us the most. (Like what I DON’T want!)
And here's a bonus tip: no matter how the dates goes, be polite. Be a lady. Be a gentleman. Treat them with respect even if they don't show you respect. Why? 1. Because you never know where something may go. This person is leading you to your soul’s romantic partner in one way, shape, or form. Treat them with respect. 2.  It strengthens your heart muscle. You'll have automatic responses the stronger this muscle is.

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 - 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.
