Christmas Eve and a Visit From The Awesomeness Advantage- Day 186: 365 Radical Self Love Project

As some of you may or may not know last year I was co-hosting a weekly web-series called “The Awesomeness Advantage”.

64630_312634402176107_895277858_nWe combined spiritual wisdom, practical application techniques with silliness, humour and of course AWESOMENESS!!! We invested a year of our lives and recorded an episode every week for an entire year. It was an incredibly fun and growth provoking experience for both of us.

Last year we made up our own version of the tune The 12 Days of Christmas, which I thought would be the absolute perfect post for today’s festiveness!

Enjoy and if you like the episodes there are 51 TAA Episodes to choose from, makes for some solid holiday entertainment 😉 Happy Merry Christmas Eve lovers! xo

Feature Friday: Family Addition- Day 175: 365 Radical Self Love

Today’s Feature Friday is focused on my love of family.

While in the midst of all the holiday hustle and bustle and all the goodness we have coming down the pipe for 2014, our next few Feature Fridays are going to take on a slightly different flavour. We’ll resume the Featuring of RSL members in January and for meow lets share about family fun time!

Last night my mom came into town for our holiday celebrations. CB and I will be kicking it in our home city for the Christmas season so this mini family trip is incredibly special to both of us. We get the opportunity to be with family, do all the Christmasy things like decorate the tree, have wine and cheese, shopping adventures and most importantly time together as a family.

I am so grateful for the beautiful day we got to spend together today. It is incredible to have mom here and for us to get to spend this precious time with her.

We kicked off this morning with a trip to Ethical Kitchen for a delicious breakfast. We had chagga mushroom tea and all three of us enjoyed delicious, massive breakfasts.

Following breakfast we took a little mini work break- caught up on some adminy things and then headed off to the Vancouver Christmas Market.

Following the market we picked up a few more decorations, had and early dinner and meow are at home gearing up for a night of hockey, wine and decorating our tree. Such a perfect day. It is moments like these with the people we love most I am really keen on drawing attention to and featuring.

Now that we live in different cities than our families it is incredibly important to us as a couple to invest time and energy into our family units when ever possible. These moments are so precious and although life can get “lifey” sometimes it is growing clearer and clearer to me as I go through my life just how important family time really is.

I am so thankful for my beautiful family and for all these experiences that will forever reside as gifts in my heart!

Happy Halloween- Day 132: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Happy Hallows Eve Lovers!!!!

imagesHalloween is my second favourite holiday/celebration time (Thanksgiving is my fav).

I’ve always been fascinated with magic and all things witchy, so naturally having a night to celebrate the mysteries and magic of the Universe is high on my LOVE list.

images-2Originally today we had planned to rock our monthly RSL workshop and in an unexpected turn of events we had to cancel the event as I threw out my back really intensely and can barely move. Inside of being a day dedicated to the magic and mysteries of life I dove into the mystery of why this happened on this day.

Being immobile is a very clear message to me that I need to slow down. Every move I’ve been able to make has happened very slowly and with major intention. I got me to pondering how much I just operate on auto-pilot and don’t give much thought or intention to the most amazing things like walking.

I’m usually pretty self sufficient and I believe this is the Universe’s way of bringing my attention to a little imbalance. I love to give and part of being in harmony is to balance the giving with receiving. I am currently being blessed with the opportunity to fully receive.

To have such amazing people around me today who truly just want to help and be of service has opened my heart even more. Inside of this little speedbump I have truly experienced how much love I have in my life all the time and I am truly blessed to have such an incredible partner and friends.

Even though my body is in an experience of pain my heart is happy, I’m feeling the love and trust this is happening for my highest good. 😉
