Have Faith in Yourself

It’s so easy to second guess ourselves, or think we aren’t good enough to accomplish something. But these thoughts do not serve us, they deter us from striving to reach our goals, they hold us back from becoming something better. I’m currently working on a couple of projects that have really tested me, and have shown me how important it is to have faith in ourselves. It took me 26 years to believe that I was actually capable of achieving great things. We truly are meant to have an amazing life but that will never happen unless we become vulnerable, and allow ourselves to truly be who we are at our core. I always wanted to have a blog where I could share parts of my life, my journey, my travels etc. and inspire others. But it took me a year to actually launch it… An entire year of questioning and doubting myself. I realize now that it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks of you. YOU have to love yourself and believe in yourself, …

Love is a Practice

Love is a daily practice, a journey… It’s not without darkness, but we must be thankful for the darkness, for without it we could not define the light. Don’t let your troubles, your pains, become an excuse to hurt others, whether passively or actively. Use your vulnerability instead as a way to go deeper into the choice of love. Do your best to radiate on a high frequency of love and kindness no matter what the situation. There are always things to be grateful for, and always lessons to be learned. Send love to everyone you know, to everyone you meet, to all living beings. This love will be drawn back to you. We always have a choice. I choose love. Namaste, Molly xo __________ “If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.” – Osho

Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life

The last year and a half has been one full of self-discovery and self-acceptance. Throughout this time, I listened to many audiobooks to aid me in my spiritual journey, but none affected me quite like the late Wayne Dyer’s “Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life”. This book is a translation of the 81 verses of the Tao Te Ching or The Great Way, written 2500 years ago by a “God-realized being”, Lao-tzu. Now, without getting into religion, I will say that I am a spiritual person but I do not engage in any religious practices. I will quote the Dalai Lama here and say “I have no religion, my religion is kindness”. I guess you could say that’s why this book touched me deeply. It is about living the Tao: spreading kindness, compassion, love and most importantly, letting go of ego. Wayne Dyer spent a full year reviewing hundreds of translations of the Tao Te Ching and wrote an essay for each one of the 81 verses. The book is meant to provide guidance and …
