Love Coaching: Anchored - How to live your best life?

Welcome to Your Darkness

I have spent a lot of time in darkness searching for that which I know is necessary. In it, I found all that I needed and the keys to so much more.

I am on a journey. You are on a journey. We are all on a journey—both, uniquely and collectively. When the going gets tough and the way becomes unclear there are things that you will always need and one thing that is always so good to have. You need the proper navigational toolbox and a basic users manual—and you will be elated to have some good company along the way who desires that you find your way out of your darkness beaming brighter than before you ascended into your abyss.

Love Yourself

BE YOUR SOMEBODY, LOVE YOURSELF | #TEASPIRATION

You’re nobody till somebody loves you. You’re nobody till somebody cares.

—Frank Sinatra

Frank Sinatra Quotes; You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You

I will always encourage you to love yourself. I will not be the only person who tries to hearten you to love yourself despite all doubts.  Yet, if you cannot love yourself all I say and all others say will be in some sense vain. No amount of people can ever love you enough to make you feel like you are somebody worth loving or caring for. The journey to knowing your worth lies within you. The path you seek towards love is yours and only yours to tread. Until you can convince yourself that you are worth every ounce of love that ever manifested you will continue feeling insignificant and unnecessary.

You feel like a “nobody,” because you have convinced yourself that someone or something outside of yourself can make you somebody. You are squandering your good energy trying to prove to the world that you are somebody. What is there to prove? It took me a while to remember, but I have always been somebody. I have always been important, a part and parcel of this great divine tapestry. If it were not so, there would be no need for me to be here. You are here because you are important. You are here because you are necessary. We need something that only somebody, that somebody being you—can provide.

Your heartbeats inspire me,

—♥Egypt

Self-acceptance is Success: How to be successful

Self-acceptance is Success

On the conveyance to work one day, I was having a heart-to-heart with my little one. Yes, a heart-to-heart with the little one swimming and bumbling in my womb. I had the urge to have “The Talk” early—the self-acceptance talk. Over the course of five years, I have realized that the most important requisite for success in business, love or life, in general, is self-acceptance.

I now look at self-acceptance like I view putting together a giant jigsaw puzzle. For those of you who do not know this about me, I love jigsaw puzzles. As a child, one of my greatest commitments and accomplishments was completing a 1000 piece Mataoka (Pocahontas) puzzle. I was so proud of myself—in hindsight, it was pretty tough to piece together. My parents were proud of me too—so much so, my Hena coated it with clear glue and framed it. A couple of years later we sold it at the flea market, but still to this day I sit back and think about that puzzle and how each and every piece was a true ace in its place.

You are Worth Your Self-worth

We  try to force change upon ourselves and others—but change is natural—and nothing natural can be forced. 

I spent a little over a year, maybe even two, fighting myself—or something of the sort. I was in a full-on battle. Literally, I had waged an almost unforgiving, horrendously relentless war against the woman I knew I was becoming—the woman I knew deep-down all of me desired to be. In my spirit rose a resentment toward this woman I had yet to formally meet. Forcibly I was on a mission to postpone her arrival. Some days it felt as if I wanted nothing more than to halt her coming all together. Ironically, I felt that I knew nothing of her. Sadly, as much as I innately desired to see her in all of her highly anticipated grandeur I could not stand feeling her emerging. I loathed watching her from half-shut eyes displacing the me I had grown to find so many comforts within. 

Eventually, I realized there was not much I could do to make myself feel happy and fulfilled until I just allowed myself to simply be—to commit, to leap, to freefall, to find a way to catch myself in mid-air—like a cat—and to land on my feet after all of my shifting, my changing. For my sanity’s sake, I had to make way for her arrival. I had to abandon my complacency. Continue reading “You are Worth Your Self-worth”
