Yesterday I got really, really, angry and I couldn’t stop myself!!!
It really does not matter what I was angry about but I will tell you that this blood boiling anger I felt came about over a simple thing as a phone charger! I had an issue with my daughter taking my rapid phone charger once again after we had had discussions about this the previous day, and it triggered a lot of anger in me.
As I mentioned it really does not matter the reason why I was angry because that is not the point of my writing today. I am not trying to build a case or prove I was right or that she was wrong. None of that matters… what matters is that this anger did not feel good for either of us.
My daughter cried a lot, I cried and was pained about her crying and was angry about my anger… go figure. See how this stuff starts to spiral deeper and deeper?
Anyhow, this morning, when I awoke and had the feelings and thoughts around this rush back into my morning consciousness, I knew I had to make a decision or to continue to suffer with this newly created pain and anger, or to somehow use this opportunity to transform and heal it.
How would I do this? Well I am currently reading Matt Kahn’s book “Whatever Arises Love That”, and I thought yes Love is the answer. I have to love this situation and to love my anger. This is what will transform this frequency and even turn this situation into the gift that it is!
Love My Anger?
What an opportunity I have! I have the opportunity to:
Identify that I am alive and aware of my anger and of this situation
Choose to take the opportunity to shift it all to a place of Love and a higher frequency
To see the gift of this situation and to relish in my humanness
To maybe help others with anger and other painful emotions by openly sharing my story and how I am working at transforming this situation this morning….
Okay whew. I’ve been openly honest here with myself and those reading my words. And nowI can love myself back to love. I will do this by choosing to shift this situation right in the here and now. I choose to send love to my heart and to my daughter’s heart.
I choose to not ‘resist’ or ‘deny’ that this is or has happened. I had A LOT of anger and I displayed it, but now I will send love to the situation and “love what arose”. When I love what is, I displace the anger because they cannot co-exist.
Wow. Feeling better already. I will now go forth with a lighter and happier heart and I will project love around this entire experience and move forward in my day with a loving heart once again.
I hope that you found this as helpful as I did in writing it. And please remember you can replace the emotion of anger with any painful emotion and send love to it to help shift you from that feeling of ‘frustration’, ‘judgement’, ‘hatred’ (fill in the blank) and love ♥ what arises, send love to it, to you, and release the hold that it has on you and in turn you will project MORE love out to the world too. By doing this we all infuse more love and loving kindness out into the world.
So even in our darkest moments, we can turn them into conduits of love and healing.
Why do I let my light shine? And why should you let your beautiful light shine?
During my morning feeding of my soul, I contemplated this very question and was inspired through some work of Matt Kahn. I will share my thoughts here today.
Matt talks about giving and receiving and that giving is receiving and receiving is giving. I really resonate with that and I know this to be true. When I give to others I receive that which I give. If I show love to someone, I feel more loved and loving. If I give kindness to others and they receive it, I receive it too!
And then I started thinking about loving ourselves and about letting our glorious and beautiful souls, spirits and personalities out to shine for all the world to see. Matt talks about when we let ourselves shine we allow others to shine too! It really is win-win.
But then I thought, I work at shining to help me too. I try to shine so that I bring light to my own darkness, my own doubts, my own fears, and my own insecurities and struggles. To put it another way, I shine light to dissipate my personal pain and suffering.
I am learning from Matt’s work that the fear and the pain are divine too and this has helped me to better love what is and to move through it easier.
To sum it up this whole thought process of mine it is this:
If we let our lights shine, we heal ourselves from pain and suffering and we fill in the dark spaces with light and then in turn we shine and lead the way for others to also do this. We become a beacon of light and one by one we awaken this truth in others and then our lights radiate farther and wider and that very love and light is infused into the hearts of many.
If you are reading this today, please know that these words are infused with much divine and immense LOVE & LIGHT for you!
So do your part and let your light shine okay? You’ve got this!

WHO is your biggest obstacle in your life?
WHO stops YOU from being YOU?
Is it YOU?
I think we are all guilty of this sometimes. The greatest freedom in life is the freedom to be who we are.
I was thinking this morning a kind of crazy but fun thought. What if we saw ourselves as a slow cooker or crock pot. Just get up ‘set it and forget it’. Meaning get up, be who we are exactly as we are, and off we go to en𝐉𝐎𝐘 our day.
I love to write about these things so I can remind myself about concepts like this. Maggie, just be YOU.
I have found that the more ME I am, the easier my life has gotten. I am a work in progress. I take baby steps and I keep going. I forgive, I forget, I love, and I learn compassion as I go. I learn to be compassionate with myself and with others.
The more insecurities I have the more I am learning about humankind. WE are human. We make mistakes. We learn. We keep going. There is nowhere to ‘get to’ and as Ram Dass so eloquently stated “We are just walking each other home”.
So my friends, whatever you need today, I am sending. I am sending strength to those who need that. I am sending Love to you and to me! I am sending thoughts of beauty and encouragement. I am sending you encouragement to be YOU and to LOVE YOU! You are enough and you are AMAZING just as you are. And by the way, you look so beautiful just being all human like like you are. 🙂
Whatever it is you need right now to feel stronger, supported and loved, know that these very words are infused with all of that and more……

Last night I did a Zoom video training online for some entrepreneurs from all over North America and I really hit home on this!
Be as much ˜”°•.˜”°• YOU •°”˜.•°”˜ as you can be! The more we are being ourselves expressing our beautiful divinity and individual sacredness, the better.
I was saying that I actually made a point of being me on that call last night. I wore no makeup, I had a little hole that I discovered in my yoga top that I was wearing .. and I did not change it. I just went with it 🙂 And you know what? It felt great! GREAT I tell you.
I am learning that the more ME I can BE the easier this thing called Life gets.
So why not let yourself loose today and go all in just being YOU? You who has your own unique smile, way of chewing, nose, wit, passions, desires, JOYS, insecurities, cuteness, nastiness, ups, downs, and all-arounds. 🙂
May your unique dance of life be yours and only yours.
