To Mikaela Ann Conley, dedicated to the betterment of humanity. This Daily Saint goes out to you:

You embody what it means to be beautiful.

Your outward beauty, style and grace captivates a room but that is not the most moving aspect of your presence. True beauty is cultivated from the inside and shines out. You, Mikaela Ann Conley, are a radiant, passionate, curious, creative person in pursuit of greatness. You actively pursue the good in people to share it with others, THAT is beauty.

Your beauty is your essence. Your beauty is your devout loyalty to do good and stand up for others. Your beauty is in your ability to walk alone and defend someone you don’t know when others  knock them down. Your beauty is your passion to ask questions and provide answers. Your beauty is your ability to blaze your own path against the grain. Your beauty is your fiery love and committed curiously. Your beauty shines from the inside out.

Mikaela Ann Conley you are a STUNNING person, in every way. Thanks for helping us ‘see the good.’

Letters from my Sister

Letters from my Sister

pep talk

Noun
A talk intended to make someone feel more courageous or enthusiastic

I would like to share a letter from my sister. Dated  May 23rd 2013….this is what she had to say:

You’re not crazy or ugly. You’re quite the opposite. You’re beautiful.

The psychic did not curse you. She sounds like a complete maniac and to believe her would mean you’re insane, too … which you’re not! No one has the power to do something like that to another person. NO ONE.

You need to remember what you tell me about self-love. I really think you should listen to the Conversation. Listen to the Lady Gaga one. It’s only about 15 minutes. http://vimeo.com/41433603

And, you are a very VERY beautiful person.  I’ve been trying (trying being key word) to focus less on worrying about my looks and more about worrying about my brain and relationships. I worry a stupid amount about wrinkles, but the fact is, they’re coming, and I’m not going to be able to stop them, and there is always going to be someone out there who is more beautiful in the objective sense than me. I need to focus on things that will bring me true joy and feelings of accomplishment, which is being healthy, becoming an author, getting The Daily Saint off the ground and causing a big impact, and maintaining and fostering the relationships of the most important people in my life. Actually, I got to really putting that in the front of my brain when I listened to the Conversation with Portia de Rossi (she’s after Lady Gaga on the video … watch that one, too).

IN CONCLUSION, No, you’re not ugly or crazy. You are beautiful and sane and loving and wonderful. 🙂

Let’s play a little game called ‘I AM ENOUGH’. You will need your beautiful face and a mirror to proceed. Please follow the instructions carefully.
THE GAME:
  1. Look in the mirror.
  2. Look into your eyes.
  3. Notice how radiant and perfect you are;)
  4. Say aloud “I am enough.”
  5. Smile
  6. Say it again “I am enough.”
  7. Smile
  8. Say it again “I am enough.”

Now notice how it feels like to tell yourself that you are worthy. Feel it in your body. Where do you notice the sensations? Feel it in your heart. Feel it in your head. Perhaps you feel overwhelmed with happiness, maybe not. Maybe you will realize that your entire life, you have never once told yourself that you are enough.

The way we internally speak to ourselves has incredible power. The inner chatter radiates through our being. It becomes transparent in the way we carry our bodies, the way we speak, and the energy we exude. Today, bring awareness to the way you speak to yourself. Do not judge, rather observe. Allow yourself to shift the way you are speaking to yourself, even if you don’t believe it. Create an affirmative mantra that resonates with you and repeat it. Repeat it until you believe it.

For every negative thought, replace it with a positive one, an age-old simple, but effective technique.  See what happens. Purify your thoughts and set yourself free.

Shine on beauties!
