25 Ways to Radically Love Yourself Right Now

When February rolls around we put a lot of attention on to others, and that’s great, but what about yourself? Giving to others is a form of self love because what you give you receive, but what is it like to truly be wildly in love with ourselves? Not in the egotistical kind of way but in a way that is unbound and free of others expectations (even our own), to live bearing our hearts and souls, and to tell our fears to fuck off. This Valentine’s Day, and so on, give yourself the gift of self love. 1. Let go. There is…

A Game Called Choice

Ahhh yes… I love this subject. The topic of what we perceive. Read the quote below… “It’s wise to remember that everything you think you “know” or “perceive” is an interpretation. Every bit of information you take in is influenced and altered by your particular set of beliefs, assumptions, and associations based on your past experience.” K, now read it again and really take it in. “Every bit of information we take in” – wow, that’s quite a bit, actually maybe even a little overwhelming.
