(I was asked to dish on Luck for a blog series put together by Molly Mahar of Stratejoy. She’s organized a blog crawl + Treasure Hunt where 26 sassy writers are blogging about self love.)
“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart.
It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.”
— Judy Garland
Last week, I was on a morning radio show to chat about Create Your Own Luck, 7 Steps to Get Your Lucky On, as it relates to love. Romantic love. I think I shocked the sugar out of the hosts, when I suggested that instead of worrying about wooing the perfect mate, you need to woo yourself.
I know you think you want your honey to surprise you with something shiny. Or, maybe you are dying to have a honey. Regardless, I’m here to tell you, that you ARE the shiny. YOU are the honey. The sooner you align with that basic truth, the luckier you are going to get. Romantically and otherwise.
Self -love is the fertilizer of luck. And luck, my friends, is the way to become your very own soul whisperer.
When I wrote my book to teach peeps how to “get their lucky on,” I wanted to create a shift in how we think about luck and life. I’ve created 7 basic lucky commandments, that I challenge you to journal about them one at a time. Pick one a day.
My love affair with myself, and the notion of luck, over the past two years, has led me to understand that your very cell level goodness generates more luck that you can imagine.
You are a luck factory. If you are ready to embrace that, you will, in fact, have a love affair with yourself.
This Blog Crawl of Self-Love is hosted by Molly Mahar of Stratejoy. She believes in the transformational power of truly adoring ourselves and so do I. Find out more about The ABC’s of Self Love Blog Crawl + Treasure Hunt here.
