Happy Belated New Year and Happy February!
I hope this finds you well as we move into the second month of the year and the teeniest month of the year.
(Also my favorite month of the year) 😊
I wasn’t sure what I wanted to focus on this month as I feel like so much has happened since I last checked in with you. You may have been wondering why I didn’t send a Happy New Year message to you in January like usual. Well, it wasn’t that I wasn’t thinking about you or anything like that. A family member passed during the holidays and as you can imagine it’s taken some time for me to get back to my schedule and regular activities.
So here we are in a brand new month and while I’m still taking things day by day, I am back to work and it feels great to be connecting with you. (On a brand new computer no less. In fact, this is my inaugural writing on the new computer. My tried and true old computer decided to retire on me during that big eclipse.)
I was trying to decide what to write about and a really strong theme kept showing up for me over the last several weeks and it was:
Invest in Love, Starting with You.
It sounds so simple, and it is in a way but it’s also really powerful.
As we’ve been moving through grief individually and as a partnership in our home, this theme has shown up over and over again. What I kept being shown was that as we invest in what love means to us, starting with us then we fill our days and lives with love.
Loving Ourselves can sometimes be a challenging task.
Maybe you didn’t grow up in a home where loving yourself was a strong value or perhaps you weren’t shown how to love yourself.
Maybe you grew up around folks who taught you that loving and taking care of yourself or holding healthy boundaries was selfish or not something to be practiced.
Maybe you weren’t encouraged or supported as you invested in the things, ideas, projects, or passions that really spoke to you.
Maybe you were coerced or placed in front of things that your loved ones felt would be a more appropriate choice for you and your life.
No matter what may have kept you from investing in Love, Starting with You in the past doesn’t mean you can’t begin to invest in Love now. The great thing about this, is that you can apply it to every area of your life and as you invest in Love, it Grows and fills You with Love too.
This doesn’t have to be some “out there” non tangible concept, you can apply it to your life right now; today.
Ask yourself the following questions; and answer with the very first thing that comes to your mind. There are no wrong answers here, and the answers you receive will give you great insight into how you can Invest in Love, Starting with Yourself. (No one is going to see your answers, ask you to share, or read them aloud; so please give yourself permission to really go for it as you answer.)

Great job, now you have a clear understanding of some places and spaces within your life where you can Invest In Love, Starting with You.
The truth is that Investing in Loving Yourself is a Slam Dunk of an Investment.
You are worthy of loving yourself and investing in yourself, daily.
As you take good care of yourself which includes applying Love Daily you can support, love, and care for others in your world much more completely.
Taking care of yourself is a must and it’s the opposite of selfishness.
Loving Yourself is an act of Service because you automatically bring and share love wherever you go and with everyone who crosses your path.
I’m sending you so much love and intending that you easily Invest in Love, Starting with You, today and all year long.
Thank you so much for being a part of my life, I’m so grateful for you.
If you feel like you could use some additional support through an Intuitive Session or an Energy Treatment I would love to work with you!
With love and gratitude,
