Underneath it all

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.

Hi Beautiful Yous, I want to extend my deep love for you as the last days of this year fall off the calendar. Looking back over the last twelve months, if the days were piled up in a room, one thing is for certain, they would be radiating some intoxicating love, beating with it – a sure & steady but gentle beat. You feel it?

Underneath it all, all the layers that we shroud ourselves with, no matter what flavor those layers are, no matter our opinions, our experiences, how we’ve been judged – no matter who we are – at our core, we are love & we crave love.

Every. Single. One of us.

I know that some people’s shells are harder to break into sometimes but that has nothing to do with you. That’s their work, whether they choose to take on the venture or not, whether they choose to grow, has little to do with you.

This kind of stuff always seems to come up around the holidays.

What I want to leave you with is this:

Be an example.

All this goodness that we strive for everyday starts with one love.

When we let our feet kiss the ground with love, with every step & we tenderly hold on to the pure & simple fact that we are all raw & wild love underneath, that’s where growth starts.

When your eyes look out at every person you come into contact with – keep this simple image in mind:

Their heart, underneath their skin, is just like yours. It is on fire with love. They are either projecting it or they are pining for it or they are somewhere in the in-between.

Just love them, unconditionally.

Be an example
of love.


I’m taking a little break from now until January 2nd. I will mostly be spending this time with my loved ones & restoring my energy. I also will be working on tidying up this space a little & I have a few ideas swirling around in my head for new projects – over all, just preparing for another year of fantastical amazingness.

2012 is gonna rock socks. That’s a fact jack.

Thank you for being you & being here.

One love,
