A Phrase That Can Change Your Life: Shut the Love Up

Updated: Nov 13, 2019

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. ⁣
