Key Takeaways

  • The root of self-love starts with self-awareness. Self-awareness deepens each time you become still and listen. It is crucial to carve out time daily for silence, stillness and space.
  • Location has energy, and time has memory. Try to do the same self-care practice, at the same time every day, in the same room. Simple changes in routine can lead to so many revelations.
  • Each area of your home should be curated with a certain energy. Leave technology out of the kitchen and living room and spend that time to nourish yourself and connect with loved ones.
  • Harmony and peace are experienced when what you think, say and do are aligned. If you audit your time and money, do they represent what you really value?
  • In order to find your purpose, first examine what you are curious about, then become an expert on that topic. Once you infuse compassion and service into your expertise, your purpose will be found.
