Shut the love up.
Isn’t that great?
When I moved out to the wilds of the mountain west I met an older cowboy gentleman, who just happened to be out dancing most Tuesday nights when I was, and over the weeks we chatted a whole lot.
One night he told me that his favorite four-letter word is love. He uses it just like anyone uses the F, S, or D word..or hell for that matter. He believed that you’ve either got love or nothing. So why not tell people to use it in every instance, even the frustrating ones?
I remember thinking to myself while in this conversation “Save this one, you’ll need it.”
Little did I know that I’d need it right here and now in my journey as a life and relationship coach.
Today I spent frustrated, I’ve been up and down and all around. I’ve been feeling locked up in my 9-5 gig, uninspired with how to access you all (truly, hello vulnerability - didn’t I promise to see more of you?). Negative, predatory thoughts have been running through my head all day. Preying on the high-vibe headspace I try to get in every morning.
“Why should I...” “Where do I get off thinking…” “What’s all this for anyway?”
And then I said to myself “Would you shut the love up!?” Do it, just shut the ever-present, love up.
With that I breathed a sigh of relief, knowing this is for you.
I’m in the realness now, I’m seeing relationships form and shift, drop and grow. I’m remembering and having dreams of situations long past.
These are the things that I have been brought here to share with you.
Today the biggest thing is - shut the love up. Just do it.
