As I write to you I am feeling deeply into the Love Yourself Naked Video Summit and the thousands it will reach and also planning for 2013 and the programs that will impact you most. I can already feel and see the smiling faces, it’s really beautiful.
Thank you for opening yourself up to this HEALTHY idea of Naked Love Of Thy Self…
Last night, I went to a restaurant close to were I live. It’s actually Kid Rock’s restaurant for those who follow him. Wonderful place and the menu could be described as good ole soul food…
My first glance over the menu triggered this thought:
I need to order a salad because I don’t want to eat anything on this menu. A salad is always a safe bet.
Then the words came to me:
GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK.
So, I decided to order the sweet potato burrito and fried pickles.
For those who know me, I’m a huge foodie and health nut so fried goodness hasn’t been in my life for a while, although it used to be on a daily basis.
There was a time when I filled myself with foods so I wouldn’t have to feel anything at all.
There were some years where I had judgements on myself (and others) when they ate foods that were not in line with “my idea” of healthy. I was trying to be perfect.
There were also times when I was so afraid of eating bad because i didn’t trust myself enough not to go down that rabbit hole of using food to fill the void.
MY HEALTH FOOD WAS MY WAY TO CONTROL.
So as I savored the flavor of the fried pickle and even shared it with my son… I want you to know that I ate it with a pure, clean heart.
I ate with a feeling of fullness.
I tasted the food. I enjoyed the environment. I didn’t allow the judgement, fear and distrust to sneak in.
INSTEAD, I ate with a beginners mind.
:: By definition, having a beginner’s mind means having an attitude of openness, eagerness, and freedom from preconceptions when approaching anything. Beginner’s mind is actually the space where the mind does not know what to do. It is that delicious state when you are sure of nothing, yet completely fearless, totally available to the moment. ::
Truth to be told, my stomach was a little uneasy this morning as I’m not used to the foods I ate, but I used that uneasy feeling as a curious reminder of my freedom and openness. I wouldn’t give that freedom and openness away for anything.
The choice I made was powerful because it came from a place of feeling full already.
Below I want to share some of the lessons that I’ve learned along the way.
I want to encourage you to register for the free summit I’m hosting called, The Love Yourself Naked Video Summit: World Renowned Women Share Their 12 Secrets.
On a very personal level… the interviews that will be shared with you are going to hit home, wake you up, transform you, inspire you, call you to action and remind you of who you are.
My most authentic self has been birthed through Love Yourself Naked and I want to share that insight with you! I’m happy to report that 2 years from now I’ll be able to see even more of my authenticity come out because of this Love Yourself Naked journey.
