Shame is an inner-focused, painful emotion that encompasses the entire sense of self. It distorts a person’s self image to the point that they cannot see nor relate to their deeply buried authentic selves.
Shame is an IRRATIONAL feeling of worthlessness, humiliation and self loathing that leads to an overall feeling of paralysis that profoundly sabotages a person’s life.
Internalized shame ruins lives, it stops individuals from experiencing professional success and it derails significant relationships.
With the support of a professional therapist or transformational life coach, shame can be dismantled and a person’s self-esteem and life rebuilt. 🦋
Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
I use the word “love” here not merely in the personal sense but as a state of being, or a state of grace – not in the infantile American sense of being made happy but in the tough and universal sense of quest and daring and growth.

When we listen to the whispers of our soul and the call of our heart, life seems to align to our authenticity and we begin to create and live from our own natural flow. 🦋
Being authentic is an ongoing process – our false sense of self recalibrating to our inherent worth. It is not a panacea for perfection rather it is our commitment to feel that we are enough, complete and whole. 🦋
There is no mystery to getting things done. It’s a decision powered by our will to achieve. We make up our minds to view ourselves as accomplished doers, we do it and then we bask in the glory of having succeeded. Whether it’s cleaning out our closet or building an empire, the doers aim is the same, to have something desired. Yes, it’s as simple as that.🦋
Boundaries! If someone reacts to you reinforcing your boundaries, it demonstrates that they are needed. Stay strong. 🦋
When we invest in ourselves, it is a commitment that lasts forever.
Invest in your mind, body, education, creativity and experiences, that guarantee a lifetime of personal and professional empowerment. 🦋
