"The first connection to 'self' begins with YOU! Your capacity, your empathy, your desire to LOVE YOUrself will transcend to others around you. These are the people, then, that you can trust & call to your heart and you to theirs. BUT, the FIRST connection; your FIRST Heart-to-Heart rests with YOU" Monica Bickerstaff, MSJ,CChP & Fountain Of Youth Guru(TM)

1. Ground yourself
You cannot be fully present in your life if you are only in your head. It is important to be connected to your body and your spirit to gain full access to your power. In the words of ABC Network Screenwriter & Media Mogul, Shonda Rhimes "DANCE IT OUT!"

2. Honor Your Feelings
If you get stuck in the “shoulds” there is a lack of connection and the energy level goes down. When fear is present, give your inner child a hug.

3. Look for the joy in the present
Look for the simple things that make you smile. Appreciate what you do have: stop focusing so much on what you do not have. Speak only words of harmony.

4. Acknowledge yourself as valuable and then treat yourself with the care that you would give to a valuable person
You will naturally notice a greater willingness to let go of unhealthy, destructive behaviors or growth inhibiting relationships of all kinds.

5. Take small consistent steps towards achieving your goals
Break your goals down into doable action steps. Commit to 5 minutes of meditation, do 10 sit-ups/pushups. Save $1.00 a week in a savings jar.

6. Get support
Know that you do not have to do everything yourself. Connect to a supportive community. Find an exercise partner. Hire a coach. Get a venting partner.

7. Be aware of your negative gremlins…and find ways to deal with them
Negative voices in our heads create stress and make it harder to move forward. It is important for you to be the internal traffic controller- Learn to be a master of your mind. Get help if you need it.

8. Let Spirit be the CEO of your life
The past is over and NOW is the time when you co-create your future. The Divine may have bigger plans for you so always add “this or something better when setting goals."
