There is one thing we are all entitled to, and it is Love.
Walking around with your nose in the air as if you are superior? No, that isn't loving and does not reflect a healthy sense of entitlement. Knowing you are completely lovable without needing to do anything to earn love, yes, this is a true and sensible entitlement.
With honor, I support my friends and clients to step into the knowing that they are entitled to Love. Is it easy? No. But is it simple? Yes. And the simplicity is easier to see from someone else's shoes, not our own. That's one reason why it is so helpful to lean into the support of friends, or your art, or meditation, when we're finding life to be an uphill climb.
If this resonates with you, grab your journal, your bike or your favorite buddy and set out on a conversation to entertain the question not of why, but...
What is available to me right now, to remind me how loved I am?
Where can I be or who can I be with, more often... that has me feeling completely loved?
Don't forget this one -->
How can I show myself love today?
Rock on with your amazing self. You are way beyond worth it.
