Daily Quote

The secret to happiness is really learning to live in a perpetual state of love, whether or not you are in a romantic relationship. “Being love” versus “being-in-love” is not dependent on another person, or fleeting feelings and emotions. It really is a higher state of awareness, entering a secret place within your own soul where you connect to the divine and all creation. This kind of love doesn’t rely on external circumstances. It’s always there, flowing from within. It’s who you are. It’s what you were born for … to live life from the inside out and BE love.

– Daniel Nielsen

Do You Hear Me?

Listening to someone and really HEARING them are two totally different things…

So many of us are caught up in our own to-do lists that we often fail to separate our personal agendas from what – or who – is right in front of us. We pay lip service so we can move onto the next thing on our list… But being present is just that – a present. And it’s something that doesn’t cost a damn thing.

I find immense peace in knowing that I have the power to dictate my path in life. And you have the same power – how cool is that?!

As a society, I find we give way too much of our power away when it comes to achieving all the greatness within us and living the life we truly desire. There are expectations that we place on ourselves and those that are placed upon us by others. There is the idea of “keeping up” with the masses and proving ourselves constantly.

Consciousness. What does it mean to you?

I had the pleasure of spending the weekend with a group of incredible people. I was inspired by their hearts, their selflessness and their ability LOVE for no other reason than that’s WHO they are. We all are.

The truth is, you don’t need to go to another country to inspire hope and provide something magical to others. Sadly, there are plenty of people in your very own backyard that need support and resources. Often, this truth goes unnoticed.
