So let's get started.
The first thing I plan on leaving behind as this year comes to an end is judgment.
Judgment of myself and also, the judgment of other people.
Yes, even people I feel I can judge. Which is basically just my opinion.
You see the one thing I've noticed is that the people of this country and even the world are completely divided right now.
The more I look at this situation the more silly it seems.
I truly believe...

10 Soul Aligned Deep Self-Care Practices
Start living big, with passion, propose, and impact
A lot of times when we talk about self-care we think of getting a massage, a hot bath, and having a nice warm cup of herbal tea.
These are all great self-care things to add to your life but unless you’re doing them consistently, they will only be surface-level self-care.
There is nothing wrong with surface-level self-care. It will raise your vibe and mood which is always beneficial.
However, we want to do things that will create lasting change in order to protect our energy and create the space for the things we love.
Let us go over 10 soul-aligned deep self-care practices that will help you create the space for a life full of passion, purpose, and impact.
1. Learning the 6 types of self-care.
Step 12 - Take Action
This is an important step for any goal you want to reach or solution you want to reach. Don't sit around and wait for things to become great, don't complain if you have a problem with no solution, make one, If you want something, go get it. No one is going to do these things for you. If you want something to happen, take action.
Recognize what is action and what is procrastination. Educating yourself more, preparing to take action is not action.
You’re never going to feel ready to start so you’ll have to just take the leap. That feeling in your stomach may feel like fear but it’s really excitement!
Taking action before you’re ready I believe helps you reach your goals quicker.
It kinda goes like this:
Take action, That wasn’t perfect, let me make some changes and shifts and move forward and keep trying.
So you see, you just keep learning and moving forward until you get to where you’re going!
This week for Step 11 in the Life Purpose series we will be talking about gratitude and the benefits of having a gratitude practice.
Gratitude is scientifically proven to improve relationships, physical health, psychological health, empathy, and self-esteem. It also can reduce anger.
Let's not forget that like attracts like so it's a great place to get started when you're trying to improve your energy and vibe and the outcome of anything in your life.
When you're starting to make your daily gratitude list or journal you might be thinking, what am I grateful for? Some people struggle at first to come up with things.
Remember to start small. Think of all those small things that are just so great. Your morning coffee, Your puppy or your cat, the sunrise, someone who made a kind remark to you the other day. These things make a big difference in our lives and it’s important to acknowledge them.
The more we acknowledge them the more they will show up in our lives!
It is not healthy for us as humans to stand still and to be stagnant. Remember, movement is life. It's human nature to want to learn and grow throughout our entire life and this should never stop. It is your job to feed and nourish this desire and keep your mind and imagination alive. Right now, let's focus on reigniting our desire to learn new things and have fun doing them.
I once watched a Ted Talk where the guy talked about an experiment he did where he tried something new every 30 days.
I thought, that sounds like fun, I’m going to do that!
The first thing I did was start eating plant-based cold turkey! It was an amazing experience and something I had been thinking about for a while. By the way, I’m still plant-based today and it’s been around 12 years! I also coach other people who want to transition over so give me a shout-out if this is you.
Don't worry about being good at something or looking good. Right now, just focus on moving forward, learning...
Step 9 - Love yourself exactly as you are~
If you love yourself exactly the way you are, unapologetically, everyone else will follow suit. Going back to the first step, learning about the things we love definitely helps, you learn more about who you are. Here are a few more questions to ask yourself.
These can be signs that you're not in alignment with yourself and are questioning who you are.
