Be A Light

It was a beautiful weekend.

So much love.

So much emotion.

So much compassion.

SO MUCH LIGHT!

Our theme for Togetherness Midway was "Be A Light" and I was honored to give a few remarks at the end of the day. In a world with so much darkness, especially when it comes to sex addiction, infidelity, divorce, abandonment, abuse, betrayal, etc., I wanted to focus on the light. And how important it is in our lives.



First, we've got to FOLLOW THE LIGHT.



























Surround yourself with the people, places, and things that bring you happiness. That encourage you. That give you peace. That make you feel better.

Find those things.

Follow them.

It was hard for me to believe in the light during my darkest times. I mean, I could see the sun, I could feel its warmth on my skin, but I still didn't believe in it. Everything felt dead to me. I'd push myself into a cave where I wouldn't be living, I'd just be NOT dying.

But it wasn't all dead. That light that I felt, that I saw, that surrounded me, it was real… I just needed to recognize it.



Second, we've got to EMBRACE THE LIGHT.




























Once I found and remembered the light, I felt guilty for wanting, or feeling the urge, to smile or laugh or feel good again.

I didn't want to almost.

Like, it would mean that I was "just over it" or it "wasn't that bad" or I must not have been hurting anymore.

I'd push myself back into the dark and lonely cave I had created and I would just NOT die.

Well, just like exploring our difficult emotions are important, so is exploring and feeling and expressing the light. In my opinion, this is KEY to healing. This is KEY to LIVING and not dying. 



And lastly, we've got to BECOME THE LIGHT.



























No matter where you are in the process, what your situation is… it is so important that you know that you are not a failure. You may feel, at times, that your light is dimming, but I promise you, it's not dead! 

It never will be.

Follow it.

Embrace it.

And then… you will automatically Become it.

And what does becoming a light look like, you ask?

This is what it looks like to me:



“Let your light shine. 

Be a source of strength and courage. 

Share your wisdom. 

Radiate love” 

– Wilferd Peterson























The light is what life is all about.

At least that's what I think.

I am honored to be among all of you amazing and courageous and strong and beautiful women. Hardships will always be there, but it's how respond to them, how we overcome them, and how we shine through them, that matters the very most.









I LOVE YOU!

The Science of Happiness :)

This was just too darn good not to share! Please watch and enjoy!

Who are the people in your life who make you happier? What if you did something to make THOSE people feel a little bit more loved, a little bit more appreciated, and a little bit happier today? :)





XOXOXO

BABY BOYACK

If you're wondering why I haven't been posting all that much, I think it's safe to finally to tell you :)

I've been nauseous and extremely tired and more bloated than you can ever imagine… my energy levels are basically at zero… but it has all been for good, good, reason :)

BABY BOYACK IS ON ITS WAY!






















I will be 12 weeks this weekend and am so eager to get passed this yuckity yuckity yuck phase.

We are awesomely excited and a little bit nervous and everything in between to bring this little one into the world :) I have so much to write… so many thoughts to share.. but right now, it'll  have to wait because I am in the thick of wrapping up the final plans for The Togetherness Conference and I am in Hawaii with Seth for the next few days-- so, give me a few weeks and I'll be back to the grind.






















Also, if you've already commented on this news on either my Facebook and/or Instagram accounts, thank you, thank you for your love! I feel it. The night I posted it on social media, I was so blown away. I am surrounded by the world's best and most supportive people…. so thank you!

We are very blessed indeed.

If you do not follow me on Facebook or Instagram, I think you SHOULD! Because that's where the party has been happening lately :)

Love love love you all!

p.s. I am so excited to meet so many of you at the upcoming conference! YAY! Only a few days left to register… and we are almost SOLD OUT…. so if you have NOT purchased your ticket, NOW IS THE TIME! Register HERE
