North Shore Beauty ~ Summer 2011

Be gentle with yourself.
Yes, I mean you.

I hear the way you talk to you, the way you focus on one little itty bitty thing you don't like, the way you judge yourself, less than, too much, not enough, if only... stop it. 

Stop it now.

You are a radiant, glowing human being, deserving of radical kindness and abundant love. 

You deserve to be spoken to kindly by ALL who are in your presence- and that includes YOU!

Allow yourself the journey, if you were at the destination what fun would be left?  
Enjoy the process, be deeply human. 

You are a gift to the world.  

Your negative self-talk, your doubts are doing nothing but clouding your gifts... let your soul shine.  Sure, you will have moments of fear, or not enoughness... but from now on respond to them as though you were talking to your best friend.  

So be gentle today.  Learn, love and live fully.

And know that I love you.

There is a gentle power, a subtle shift, a sigh, 
when we surrender.

The time when we are able to release what we believe, what we hold dear, what we are fighting for.

We stand tall in the knowledge that they will remain until we are able to pack them up again.

Surrender to the fatigue, the tiredness, the exhaustion.

Release yourself of the idea that you are the only one, that you are the one that this fight depends on.

Relax into the gentle arms of the one that loves you, of the soft pillows upon your bed, feel yourself gently slip away into the sudsy warm water of a bath.

Let it go.

This is not yours to carry alone.

Stop fighting, stop struggling,

silence the chorus in your head.


Allow yourself the break, or the fatigue will break you.

For the moment just






Find the strength in letting go.

You have permission.
