The 6 Most Precious Values My Dad Has Taught Me

The value of being happy-

My Dad is one of the most jolly people I know. He is always the first to crack a joke, pull a prank and just laugh at life. This has often reminded me when I get too serious (which in all honesty is pretty regular) to lighten up, laugh and find the humour in life.

The value of being dedicated-

My entire life I watched my Dad infuse all the work he’s ever done with such intention and dedication. He shows up and shows up 100%. I remember when he was my soccer coach in the seven years he coached me and my team he never once missed a practice or a game. He honoured all of our time and effort by being on time, ending on time and showing up every time, even when I’m sure he didn’t feel like it. This dedication has impacted me more than he may ever know. I learned from a very early age to do my best to respect others time and energy and when I say I’m going to do something- do it. A profound life lesson.

The value of doing complete work-

I certainly have acquired my fathers passion for order and meticulous action. I am most at peace when everything matches, is in it’s place and nicely organized. This quality brings a certain peace to my life and truly makes things a whole heck of a lot more workable.

The value of acceptance-

This is a tough lesson for a lot of people, myself included. Having my Dad as a role model enabled me to more easily come to terms with the fact that in life there are things we can’t change and circumstances we can’t control. We can either fight against these conditions, resist them or come into a peaceful acceptance. I truly believe through his example is where I came up with this knowing that “everything that happens is the perfect thing to happen”. This particular motto has helped me immensely when in situations that didn’t go the way I expected or sometimes wanted.

The value of love-

No matter what I’ve done or how I have behaved my Dad has loved me. There has never once been a moment where I questioned his love or believed it wasn’t there. I’ve come to learn we all express and receive love in different capacities and once I figured this out I was even more present to the abundant love and support my father has for me and my brother.

The value of following your heart-

My Dad has been a living breathing example of taking the biggest risk of all- following the path of your dreams. I have learned that this path is often challenging as we face many internal and sometimes external obstacles on the route to fulfilling our hearts desires- but the value of his example resides in not being stopped by this fact. I learned by watching my Dad it was safe to pursue my passions and to follow my heart- knowing that it might not work out but to at least give it a go. No regrets.

I am so deeply blessed to have such an incredible man for a father, someone who has taught me so much and inspired me to go for my dreams and live a life I am truly worthy of. I look forward to all the many years ahead to learn from him and continue to build upon this truly beautiful relationship I have the honour and privilege of sharing with my poppa. Love my Dad so very much!

To all the amazing fathers out there I celebrate you in my heart today. Thank you for all you do. You are loved.

2 Days Until I Hit The Music Studio and Get Recording!! Day 345: 365 Radical Self Love Project

A few weeks ago I was asked if I would release my music to be used on a documentary film.

radical self love kelsey grantCompletely ecstatic at the request and manifestation to have my original music be used in a professional film there was one thing missing.

I’ve never officially recorded any of my recent (in the last 5 years) original tunes in a professional studio.

Prior to moving to Van I was in a band and did quite a bit of recording on the regular. I had a home studio with my former partner and I was able to hop in the studio any time I wanted.

Since moving to Van I re-directed my focus and began building my business and my new life. Music has always be a strong aspect in my journey but since moving five years ago it was no longer the dominant focus of my attention. I took the pressure off myself to “force” something to happen. I allowed myself to relax and trust that if music was meant to be a part of my journey going forward it would find a way.

And so it did.

In 2012 I embarked on a year long music challenge for myself. I decided that for an entire year I would learn one new chord on guitar every month and with that new chord write an original song and post it on Youtube. Out of that experience I deeply strengthened my skills as a guitar player and as a songwriter, AND…

It is those songs which were scouted for the documentary.

So now it is time to get back into the music studio and record a couple of them for use on the film- and I am stoked. I absolutely love being in the studio and recording music is one of my favourite aspects of being a musician.

My intention is within the next year to have recorded a series of my lovey/relationshipy/self lovey tunes to create the official RSL soundtrack for emotional healing and relationship manifestation.

Until then these are the songs I have selected to be used in the film. Have a listen and let me know which one is your favourite and the one you would like to see in the documentary!!!

Celebrating 300 Blog Posts Introvert Style- Day 300: 365 Radical Self Love Project

I’m an introvert with extroverted tendencies.

radicalselflove kelsey grantI am totally able and willing to rock out in my extroverted self every now and again- however as I go through my journey I am feeling less inclined to be out in public and am finding a lot of bliss in my introverted and solitude time.

My hunch is that this is just mighty prep time before life goes into another phase of busyness and lots of social activity and so I am savouring every ounce of the quietness and the bliss that comes along with it.

Today marks the 300th blog post I’ve written in 300 days. My mind is actually boggled by this. To think that I have already written 300 days of content is truly amazing. Every day I am on this self love journey I open a little bit more to acknowledging and really owning my wins.

This my friends is a massive win and I chose to celebrate in a more introverted way.

I woke up this morning really feeling the call to go inward. Some days are just like this. I was supposed to be speaking at a workshop tonight and my energy just wasn’t feeling high or all that aligned. I went about my morning as per usual, snuggles, gratitude, hydration, meditation and then I recieved word that in some weird turn of events there were only 4 people confirmed for tonight as everyone who wanted to come was heading out of town for the long weekend. Coincidence..probably not.

So I tagged in with my facilitation partner, reflected on why this was taking a different turn and surrendered. We could have fought upstream but that wouldn’t have felt good, and the point is to feel good. Instead we flowed with it, we found an alternative date that is much more aligned and gives ample space and time to promo and prep and rescheduled. That felt much better- and that is the point.

With the workshop resolved and set into it’s new dates I could go about my day in the quiet solitude my soul was craving. I’ve had the pleasure of doing reading, researching, reflecting, writing, catching up on all my admin work which I actually really love doing, rocked a coaching sesh with my amazing coach, made a litre of green juice and stayed cuddled on the couch all day rockin out my work vibe from under a cozy blanket.

So to celebrate this incredibly milestone I am going to take it easy on myself, let myself really feel into the goodness of this accomplishment and probably nerd out and do more reading and researching tonight. I seriously love my life and my very clear ability to step up, play big, maintain balance and really freaking enjoy it all.

What can you acknowledge yourself for tonight? You do so many amazing things and it is time you give yourself some mad credit for the amazingness you create in your own experience. Go ahead give yourself some encouragement you have completely earned it!

New Beginnings, More Completions and Celebration!!! Day 201: 365 Radical Self Love Project

After a full day of writing, editing, more writing and more editing I can proudly say the content for the 30 Day Radical Self Love Program is complete!!!

RSL30daylogo

This program is a culmination of my entire year of learning, growing and expanding into greater versions of myself. I put myself through this program at the start of 2013 and it truly set the foundation to launch me into incredible success in all areas of my life. To see it complete is a massive accomplishment.

proudI am so proud of all the work I have done on myself this year, and I am so proud of the courage it has taken to do the work and then boldly share it with the world.

The program as it stands one year later still holds the same foundations as last year but the depth of the content is so much richer, clearer and powerful. It took my year of clearing, healing and service to be able to put together such a rocking program!

I am so stoked for the official launch of this baby on Jan 13th!!! We will be fine tuning all the systems for the launch over the weekend, so if you feel you can’t wait until Monday or just don’t want to wait until Monday I’m happy to hook you up with a pre-sale of the program just email me at rsl@kelseygrant.com and we’ll send you all the details!

I spent the evening tonight taking a little break to celebrate this massive accomplishment and milestone with my Vancouver family. It felt so fabulous to be surrounded by so much love, encouragement and acknowledgement. I am feeling the love big time and I am so freaking excited to share this baby with you all so very soon!

6 Months of Daily Blogging Complete- Time For Some Self Acknowledgement Day 185: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Holy smokes!

With all of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season I totally missed a MASSIVE milestone.

Three days ago marked my half way point of the 365 Radical Self Love blogging project.

I am still kind of in shock in the hugeness of this accomplishment.

radical self love kelsey grantFor the past six months, I have sat down to write a blog post EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. This is a huge accomplishment for me. At one point in my life I was well known for starting things and rarely seeing them through. I really got that the impact of my behaviour extended not only onto me but also onto those around me. I began to understand my flakiness, lack of commitment and callous dis-regard for my integrity was creating a reputation that I couldn’t be counted on. I began to see the connection between my lack of commitment to my word and my personal happiness.

As I learned to keep my promises to myself I was more easily able to keep them with others. This provided me with a massive sense of motivation, momentum and positive energy.

My confidence grew with every commitment I honoured.

I knew taking on a massive goal of blogging every day for 365 days would stretch me. It would cause me to play bigger and to show up in a massive way for myself and for my community.

My achievements so far:

Already this amazing commitment has created the space for this community to grow and thrive, my relationship to open to new levels of connection, vulnerability and bliss, my company to grow and become internationally recognized, a beautiful new ushering of amazing clients and active participants in our local RSL scene, my first speaker summit booking, multiple interviews, performing at a conference in LA along side some incredible speakers, inspirational leaders and change agents, a beautiful new website, an incredible RSL Team, new friends, a road trip to California, business collaborations and soul connections, my first RSL E-book nearing completion, massive emotional clearing and healings, a 7 Week RSL Forgiveness Course written, facilitated and completed, releasing and healing weights from my past, writing new music, healing a back injury through the power of forgiveness, a 6 month young adult mentorship program, a brand new 30 Day Coaching Intensive Program, a brand new 30 Minute Coaching Reset and our 30 Day Virtual RSL Program.

I’m sure there are many more attractions, wins and accomplishments to take note of and these are the ones that are majorly standing out for me right meow.

When we start something we have no real idea the magic that is possible, through daily commitment and the intention to create something beautiful and love filled, the Universe truly opens up to usher in blessings beyond our wildest dreams.

If you want acknowledgement- acknowledge yourself

radical self love kelsey grantTonight I honour myself for the courage, commitment, strength, vulnerability and integrity I have chosen to beam into the world through this experience. I give myself credit and acknowledgement for the incredible achievement this has been so far and I am incredibly proud of the greatness I have allowed myself to step into through this process and I am proud to be a leader in this world of self love.

It is my greatest honour to be here with you- all of you. Thank you for being part of this incredible journey!! I look forward with great excitement for the next six months to come!! YEAAAA Budday!!
