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.


  1. I LOVE THIS! So beautiful and powerful...much like you!

  4. Erica--SO beautiful!!!...and we all can't hear these loving, caring, gentle words enough. Thank you for spreading your joy and love. Make it a great day, Beth
