You are worth your weight in Gold!

I hope this finds you well and happy, and having a magical, peaceful holiday during the festive season. But this time of year can also throw up lots of family tensions for many people.  Here are a couple of videos that deal with taking care of Yourself, featuring Daniel Amos.

  1. Your worth is not based on how other people treat you. Remember you are worthy no matter what. Just like gold we are all innately valuable. Video 1 
  2. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Take time out, to slow down, and enjoy the lighter things in life.  Video 2

Here’s to an even brighter, enlightened new year…

Life Lessons from Reese Witherspoon

Hi there,

In this video Reese Witherspoon, star of new film WILD, talks starting over, believing in yourself, self esteem, grief, loss, letting go, and letting it all out. And even, how we sometimes repress and take on the emotions of others.

An enlightening and touching interview from “60 Minutes” about her life journey, including taking her career back into her own hands, taking a stand for women, and working on projects that really matter:

[VIDEOS]: How do You Learn to Love yourself?

Hi there,

Did you know that today (Feb 13th) is “World Self Love Day”? The idea is that if we feel good about ourselves and value ourselves first, then we’re more able to give and receive love on Valentine’s Day, and generally find it easier to have harmonious relationships (all year round!).

Today’s videos, Produced by ‘Enlighten Me…TV’,  are intended to inspire a little dose of Self Love and Self Acceptance….

Self Worth is no easy task. Feeling Good Enough; easier said than done right? Self Love: A great idea in theory? That’s why Enlighten Me.tv  is on a quest to explore the practical ‘how-to’s, interviewing experts and people from all walks of life.

This first video features one Psychologist/ Family Therapist’s point of view (Dr Menis Yousry)  [a UK interviewee}.  

And here’s a touching and inspiring personal testimony from Comedian and Counsellor (Susan Brame) [an Australian interviewee], who I met on the road, (well, at the beach).

Are you a little too hard on yourself? Could you begin to look at yourself with less judgement, and more self acceptance?

Wishing you a (self) Loved Up Day! And please do share the videos and help spread the Love!

Actress Emma Watson on men & women…

World Changing Speech by Emma Watson on men & women –

E.g…
“I’ve seen young men suffering from mental illness unable to ask for help for fear it would make them look less “macho”—in fact in the UK suicide is the biggest killer of men between 20-49; eclipsing road accidents, cancer and coronary heart disease. I’ve seen men made fragile and insecure by a distorted sense of what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality either.

We don’t often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that that they are and that when they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence.
If men don’t have to be aggressive in order to be accepted women won’t feel compelled to be submissive. If men don’t have to control, women won’t have to be controlled.

Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive. Both men and women should feel free to be strong… It is time that we all perceive gender on a spectrum not as two opposing sets of ideals.

If we stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by what we are—we can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom”. – #EmmaWatson
