Love

The Chosen YOU!

Choose YougUltimately everyone wants to hear those three glowing words. So I bet you thought I was going to say “I Love You”? Sure hearing “I Love You” is beautiful and lovely to hear. And, those three words can bring about tears to even a grown man’s eyes.

But, there are three other simple words that speak volumes that are even more profoundly moving to hear. And, they are… Hold up. I really want you to hear this. Are you ready? You sure now? Because it’s real and true and I want you to feel it when I say it like I do. (taking a deep slow thoughtful breath) “I.Choose.You”. Can you hear it as I whisper it? Come here. Lean in. Listen. No! Just stop for a moment. Drown out the noise of invited distractions that keep you from what you really want, so that you can hear what it is that you really want. Listen. “I Choose You”. I bet you even visualized my plump lips moving in a deliberate yet soft puckered motion as I spoke it. Feeling my words slowly move about your body as it finally lands on your curled up toes. It breeding such feelings of acceptance. Doesn’t it? You know it.

Choose YoufNow just stop for a moment again and play those words of truth and strength in your head and feel it with your heart. Feel those words of ultimate acceptance run through your veins as the blood slowly flows brightly to your beating and wanting heart. Okay. You want me to say it again huh? This time I’ll say it slowly yet purposefully so that you know this ain’t child’s play but a grown folks winning it all game. “I Choooooose Yooooouu!” Wow! How amazing is that. You like that? Feels good huh? It’s what you always wanted to hear. Knowing it was meant only for you and not coming from some two timing talking out the side of their neck fool.

Let’s face it; everyone wants to be the chosen one. It is what IS! It’s all of what we want in every single aspect of life. If they tell you different in that sometimes proud I don’t need anyone or anything, I’m good type of way, they are painfully lying to you and their selves in order to shield the longing and painful existence of their lonely left out heart. The painful heart of a child that is now carrying the weight of the adult that is still lost in a world of merry go round mishaps of people that just didn’t get your worth. Or maybe just maybe the Universe just didn’t deem that situation as your destined truth. Either way, when we are finally and authentically are chosen, it creates a refreshing exhale of the most high, validation and feeling of love. Bringing forth the thought of “I Matter” because after all YOU do.

Choose YouHow might that look for you to be chosen? You got the job. You’re my best friend. Being picked first for a game of tag. You’re a new homeowner. You’ve been accepted in to the school/program of choice. Congratulations president. Invited to the hottest party of the year. The first sight of the beautiful baby you birthed that choose you as they enter this new world. And, especially, especially with our most intimate heart felt, butterfly in the stomach inducing relationships that move us to do things we would never do for another.Choose Youb

“I Choose You!” It says that in spite of you with all seen and unseen that it doesn’t matter because in this moment you are perfect in all of your imperfections. I love you for YOU. It’s what really has us to sleep soundly and peacefully at night. And, wake joyously to another morning with the all-knowing feeling that fairy tales can come true whatever that is for you. It awakens the senses. Everything looks so much brighter, smells so much sweeter, and tastes so much more delectable… Walking now like you’re on air and you own the world with a cool pep in your step. “Shaft!  Can you dig it.”

I choose your smile. I choose your hips. I choose your laugh. I choose your strength. I choose your sensitivities. I choose your belly. I choose your insecurities. I choose your snore. I choose your intellect.  I choose your dreams, hopes, and desires. I choose your chocolate dark skin. I choose that you’re a talker. I choose your children. I choose your corny jokes. I choose your quiet nature. I choose you and the life that is waiting just for us. All it means is that I love, honor, and respect you for YOU.

Choose Youe

But, a few words of advice. The chosen must be ready to be chose in order to attract to their life what is truly meant to be. Be open to hearing what path The Universe, Spirit, and your Soul are leading you to. Be as healthy as possible emotionally, mentally, and physically so you’re able to TRUST that VOICE. Be clear on what you want and what will and won’t work for you and your valuable life. Just because you’re being chosen doesn’t always mean you should choose them or it. Always respect and honor you and your truth. Know that you matter. But, hear me when I say this, YOU CAN DO THE CHOOSEN TOO!!! That’s the beauty of life and where your power also stands.

Now go ahead, because that beautiful and bright beet red rose swaying in the deliciously light wind of a sun drenched spring day is calling out to you. Choose it. Pick it. Smell it. (mmmmmm…) Choose you. Choose her. Choose him. Choose me. “I Choose You!” Choose to BeDoLove! Namaste. kcb

Resurrecting Oneself on This Beautiful Resurrection Day

Resurrection12

Interesting that today is Easter/Resurrection Day.

Resurrection11Last night I had the pleasure of attending a gathering, where the two beautiful women who invited me to their lovely, beautiful and comfortable DC home were such gracious hostesses.  It was one of those older, yet welcoming homes in a quaint DC neighborhood.  A home filled with such character and soothing creaking wood floors.  It’s the kind of home that I sometimes imagine myself creating a life and love in.  My funky and cool sanctity where there is comforting stability, endless peace, melodic harmony, and unconditional love.  That comes with a reliable house cleaners, landscapers, and handy persons.Oak Tree in DC

While there I witnessed the most humongous, bold, and beautiful oak tree in their spacious backyard.  That Resurrection9commanding big oak could have been quite intimidating, however it calmed me and created such a soothing smile on my face as I just stood there in awe and silence observing its beauty as I attempted to take it all in.  The oak reminded me that regardless of all that goes on in life, there is always opportunity to stand tall, still shine, awe, and inspire me and all who I encounter.

The bonus of the evening was of the lovely couple sharing their wedding video with all who were in attendance.  The lovelies were still glowing from their recent ceremony while sharing the backstory of their relationship and wedding day commentary.  I found myself having one of my typical Hallmark movie moments as I watched them both fiercely wardrobe change their way through the video from beginning to the end all while lovingly and attentively engaged with themselves, family, and friends.  While witnessing their special moment, I was reminded about love.  I was reminded about hope.  I was reminded about authentic connection.  I was reminded about Divine Order.  I was reminded about commitment.  I was reminded about being open to the possibilities when one of the lovelies spoke of how getting married was not at all on her radar.  I was reminded about perseverance when they both spoke about the struggles encountered with family, friends, and strangers because of the resistance to their unconditional love.  I was reminded about forgiveness.  I was reminded about fun.  I was reminded about being sexy.  After the emotionally challenging previous night and current day I was having, I knew in that moment that the Universe sent me here to receive all of these uplifting messages.  Especially when one of the lovelies looked at me later and said I can see in your eyes that you are next.  Now whether that is true or not (in terms of being next, not that it won’t ever happen), it was just nice to hear and it was reaffirming.  It was nice experiencing through their love; they are reaching out and wanting to inspire others to also have it all.  To live one’s truth and believe.Resurrection8

During that made for me evening, as I navigated in and out of various conversations, dined on deliciously seasoned and nicely spicy African food of curried rice and fish stew, sipped on tasty lemon drop cocktails, and witnessed their wonderful wedding video, I was reminded about love, reinventing myself, and how it’s never too late to have what I want.  I must believe.  Keep having hope.  Keep the faith.  I must keep resurrecting my life, heart, spirit, and soul.

I was reminded that “I am the prize.” And, one of the many messages I was sent to tell you today is that you are too. That in all of the complexities and imperfections of our lives and being, that we are perfect in who we are and are deserving.

There is a gift in resurrecting oneself.  The gift is of getting back to the basics of love, while being open to the newness of life.  So today and ALWAYS continue to resurrect yourself and flow through life and experiences with confidence, grace, authenticity, openness, respect, a colossal sense of humor, beauty, forgiveness, sexiness, trust, honor, and unconditional LOVE!!!  And, you will in turn attract to your life what you truly desire and what the Universe knows that will nourish and resurrect you in your truth.  Believe that you WILL be resurrected to the essence of your being and beingness.  ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!!!  Ase!Resurrection4

L&S, may God continue to bless and blanket you both with love, light, and fun. Thank you so much for last night and being such gracious messengers and torchbearers of BeDoLove.  I dedicate this blog to you and all who inspire through their committed love.

Namaste! kcb

Exhale and See the Beauty of a Snow Filled Spring Day

Pic I Took in March 2015

Pic I Took in March 2015

This past Friday morning on what would be the first day of spring I departed from home, entered my car and began my day after day after day journey of driving to work. As I neared the end of my block I looked ahead and noticed a breathtaking bright grey hue with a background of snow covered trees in the distance. Beautiful! Sure we’ve had a snowmendous kind of winter that has included many life challenges with health, death and uncertainty. This often results in an anxious heavy suspension in the moment of inhaling and unconsciously holding it. Despite that on this day we’ve actually entered the refreshing newness of spring and all the wonders it may behold.

However, this morning I experienced the beginning of my day through a longing and hopeful set of eyes. Startled by the beauty. I was actually surprised for I’ve been a bit clouded by life’s challenges and its sometimes gripping and painful hold. I have also been consumed in the many human grumblings of “I’m tired of this snow” and “I can’t wait until spring gets here.”

 

As I continued on my snowy not at all dreaming of a white Christmas drive, I remained in my awareness of the beauty around me. “Be in the moment Kathryn. Be in the moment.” All of a sudden, for a moment, I felt I was driving through a ski resort type of town. Like Deep Creek or even perhaps Aspen minus the big hills and spacious never-ending mountains. I felt a calm. It was one of those moments I was thankful for my long highway drive to work, I could continue to take it all in.

photo 3I know many are over the snow but in that moment of starting my day it was a life or death moment for me to be in the moment and to see the beauty of life through my longing eyes. I just really needed it and my spirit deserved that moment in its pure sense.

So I say keep your head up my family and friends. The anticipation of the newness in spring is just around the corner. But, in this moment please do find the beauty in anything and everything whether it is rain, snow or a crying baby and release a long and relaxing it will all be all right exhale.

photo 5We don’t always have to wait for the beauty of a vibrant full-bloomed scented rose to experience beauty. Smell all of the roses of life now. LIVE in the NOW!!!

Wishing me and you Peace! and Love! and Clarity! and BeDoLove!

What is Your “Soul Purpose”? You Already Know!

Soul Purpose3

Soul (web meaning) – The spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal.Soul Purpose4

What is your “Soul Purpose”?  Your calling?  Your life’s purpose?  What would you do if fear was not a factor?  Or money?  What would you do if you knew you were going to leave this earth in one year?  What are you passionate about?  What is that burning desire in your core that you secretly think, agonize or dream about over and over and over again?  Is it to travel the world?  Have a child?  Be a coach?  Be a preacher?  Write a book?  Paint?  Sing?  Dance?  Be a professional or home chef?  Run a marathon?  Mentor?  Build homes?  Teach Zumba?  Play football?  Be an interior designer?  Event planner?  Teacher?  Build a playground?  Plant a garden?  Will it require you to change your career?  What is it for you?

What is that thing that you are here to use your BEING for and to bless the universe with?  What are you to use your VOICE for?  What are you to GIFT to yourself and the world with?  As Paulo Coelho wrote so profoundly in The Alchemist “What is your “Personal Legend”?  What is that amazing thing that you are to HONOR the Soul and God by being, doing, living, and loving?  Your PASSION?!?!

The Soul is the ESSENCE of who we are.  The Soul knows all for it is being directed by Mother, Father, God, the Universe.  The Soul guides and never lies.  The Soul will lead you to the promise land if only you will listen to it and let it GUIDE and INSPIRE you in to ACTION.  It knows where you should not be and where you should ultimately be.  The Soul loves you deeply and cares about you infinitely.  It never lies therefore you can TRUST it completely.  It is that ultimate ride or die, I got your back chick or dude.

The soul is the lure of our becoming. –Jean Houston

You ever feel or hear an unidentified force strongly sending you a message?  Sure you have.  You know you have.  The Soul is the messenger and the VOICE of reason.  It will whisper to you like in the scene from the movie Field of Dreams when the voice/whisper was saying “If you build it, he will come”.  It will nudge you.  And, then it will eventually ramp up in order to get your attention by poking you.  And, if necessary it will frustratingly yell at you and give you a black eye with the only goal of gaining your attention because it loves you and is committed to having you reach your higher self, true potential and purpose by all means necessary.  The Soul will never give up on you.  However, it never has to get to that point.  But, in our fear or ego consumed existence when we continue to ignore the Soul, uncomfortable situations will be created in order to get your attention in hopes of propelling you in the right direction.  You will not be able to pretend that you haven’t heard it or know it.  It will aggravatingly consume your conscious until the day you are on your deathbed wishing you had, at the very least, tried…

Soul Purpose1STOP thinking it is not possible.  Stop the negative talk.  Instead tell yourself, “The money will come”, “They will buy my product or service”, “They will read my book and love it”.  Again, “If you build it, he will come”.  Oh and here’s another good one, “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”—Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist.  Whether one person receives the gift or a million receive the gift, it doesn’t matter.

Let’s be honest.  You know there will be the naysayers, haters, people that just don’t get it, fear losing you because of your new path, or don’t like the true you because now it forces them to look at themselves.  And, that’s alright.  In another scene from Field of Dreams, the naysayer was saying you don’t have the money and you’ll be evicted.  On the other hand, the cheerleader was breathing life and vision in to the dream passionately saying “People will come”.  This is why you must always seek out your cheerleaders and supporters.  What you have won’t be for everyone.  It’s truly about reaching those people that it is for, serving your God, and yourself.  That is what truly matters which is LIVING and being the GIFT.

The soul is the common center of universal being/spirit that seeds every single human being. –Mark Nepo

We all have the power to be AWAKENDED for it’s never too late to live your true “Soul Purpose”.  We must take time to be silent and listen for It and be guided by It.  Have COURAGE to live it.  Live YOUR life and not the life of others for fear of what they will think of it.  The TRUE you.  You deserve to live the gift.  Your parents, children, siblings, friends, bosses, colleagues, human beings yet to be met but needs you, etc.; they are all waiting for you.  They and many others deserve to experience you and your gift.Soul Purpose6

Oh what JOY and PEACE you will experience when your “Soul Purpose” is BIRTHED to life.  What LIGHT and LOVE you will exude because you are being totally FULFILLED as a result of living and breathing your “Soul Purpose”.  Where the lie finally ends and you are now living in your truth.  But, guess what?  It doesn’t end there.  The amazing and magical thing now, is by you living your “Soul Purpose” it gives others the permission and the courage to do the same.  How beautiful is that?  We all get to win and shine!

Life is too short to continue to have your heart and Soul be held up in a holding pattern.  The more you establish a healthy relationship with the Soul, the more it will talk to you and the more you will be in tune to it and hear it for the Soul is your true Soul Mate.  So, stop running from it.  Stop hiding from it.  Stop being stuck.  Stop making excuses.  Stop acting like you don’t know.   It is you.  It is in you and ready to EXPLODE and give birth as a beautiful and intimate blessing to yourself and the world.  No need to fear it.  Once you start the wheels turning the process will flow freely and all you need to achieve will come to you effortlessly.  It’s when you resist is when you struggle.  You are deserving of operating from your higher self/potential and living and breathing the life and the “Why Am I Here?” question that you’ve asked yourself and God many times.  In the end, you already know.

Time to:

LISTEN!

♥BE!

♥DO!

♥LOVE!

Namaste. –kcbSoul Purpose

Grateful for the Opportunity to Honor Love EVERYDAY!

Grateful for Love5

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day which of course always brings up all things of LOVE!!!  “Love is You”, by Chrisette Michele certainly comes to mind for me.  It is such an awesome song and message of love beyond the obvious.

♫♪ What’s your definition of it?

How does it make you feel?

Tell me what you say that truly makes it real

Kings and Queens, Philosophers have tried so hard to find

Tell me what it means to you dear, nevermind…♫♪–Lyrics from “Love is You” by Chrisette Michele

Today and ALWAYS I am grateful for love.  All kinds of beautiful and yet to be discovered moments of love.  Let me first clarify.  I’m not just talking about that mushy romantic kind of love (although I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that mushy romantic kind of love) which has one angelically gliding to the moon and back.  Or the kind of love that sometimes is not really expressed until Valentine’s Day.  But, what I’m referring to is love of life;

Love of Mother, Father, God, The Universe.

Grateful for Love2Love of discovering the newness of life and all that the world has to offer through new eyes that open with the rising of a new bright and beautiful sun.  Love of the beauty and wonder of nature.  Love of the sound of waves on a silent beach.  Love of a beautiful, vibrant, and scented flower blooming.  Love of traveling and discovering near or far.  Love of the 150mph adrenaline rush I experience through those crazy and what the heck are you doing invited fear induced adventure yes I did it moments.

Love of living and growing with that specially made for me human being.  Love of that heart thumping first soft lips kiss that makes me melt like butter baby.  Love of that voice that does something yummy inside of me when I hear it.  Love of that first look or touch that makes my heart go pitter patter and how it continues at unsuspecting moments throughout our time.  Love of fun and playful making out moments.  Love of hot, passionate, and free flowing love making sessions.

Love of the innocence of a child who stands to teach me so much if I would just take the time to be still and look and listen to them.  Love of an elder who reminds me through their wisdom and life experiences that life is truly meant for the living and that not even a second is to be wasted.  Love of remembering those who have transitioned and knowing their spirit still lives on and guides me.

Love of being free to be ME!  Love of being at utter peace.  Love of uncontrolled laughter.  Love of abandoned silliness.  Love of sweet vulnerability.  Love of unconditional love.  Love of just being in the moment.

Love of family in all of their greatness and dysfunction.  Love of a longtime friendship where I am able to just be who I am meant to be.  Love of a new found friendship where I’m being open to living life in a new and profound way.

Love of tears.  Love of keeping it real.  Love of what is and what will never be and being okay with that.  Love of my broken heart knowing one day it will be healed to love fully again.  Love of when I have the courage to put on my big girl panties in uncomfortable situations.  Love of self even when I’ve lost my way.

Love of a delicious dish that increasingly tantalizes my tongue with each and every mouthful.  Love of discovering each and every swirling note from a wonderful poured full of legs glass of wine.

Grateful for Love4

Love of destined soulmates.  Love of all mankind.  Love of being in contribution.  Love of receiving with abundant gratitude.  Love of selfless giving.

Love of boundless creativity.  Love of endless possibilities.  Love of the unknown.  Love of faith.  Love of breathing and living out dreams.  Love of a fulfilling career.  Love of being able to pay my bills.  Love of abundance.  Love of gratitude.

Love of a refreshing much required nap in the middle of a lazy day.  Love of music and dancing that makes me feel alive, and revives and heals my spirit.

Love of the scent of a favorite perfume placed on those perfect pulsing spots.  Love of sexy swag that makes me go “Ummm!  Ummm!  Ummm!”.  Love of knowing I look amazing in a hawt and sexy outfit, a business suit, or just wearing my favorite sweats.  Love of my fitted jeans and funky boots.  Love of my mind of its own weight encompassing all of its curvy curves.

Love of pure honesty with self and others.  Love of respect.  Love of forgiving.  Love of being acknowledged and acknowledging.  Love of trust with no evidence.  And, I can go on and on and on…

Love is so much and means so much.  But, simply “Love is life”.  As my man Luther Vandross (man I miss him) and Gregory Hines smoothly sang to us with “There’s Nothing Better Than Love”, ♫♪ There’s nothing better than love.  What in the world could you ever be thinking of? ♫♪  Without love we are doomed.Grateful for Love3

On this Valentine’s Day weekend I wish you all love now and for ALWAYS!!!  I also charge you to expand your thoughts and feelings of what love is to you and create your own list and perhaps share a couple here.  And, remember to be good to you and to others with love way beyond this festive weekend of love.  Be a gift.  BeDoLove!  I love you.–kcb

Lemons to Delicious Sweet Lemonade: BeDoLove Super Bowl Edition

Lemons3

My friends, Lemons ALWAYS have the capacity to make a delicious, sweet, soothing, close your eyes as it smoothly goes down, thirst quenching lemonade.  That’s right, just close your eyes and visualize it, ahhhhhhhhhhhh…   It’s just what we decide to do with those sometimes discouraging, disappointing, and unexpected circumstances that make the difference.  Uncomfortable challenging experiences will happen.  They will always happen.  But, we must remember that there’s always a reason for those unsavory situations that often occur at that time when we feel we are on the upswing of our lives.

The Choice is Yours

Those hit you in the gut unsuspecting life changing situations can be used to propel you in to glory or in to complete destruction.  It’s ultimately your call.  Let’s face it, we have enough outside forces, dream snatchers, light dimmers or kill joys to contend with.  There’s no room for them in your loving wanting to do better and be better lives.  However, there is definitely no room for you getting in your own way when thrown a challenge.  During these times it’s important to “Let YOUR Light Shine”!  “Be YOUR Gift!”

On this Super Bowl Sunday, I’m reminded of the NFC Championship game a couple of weeks ago with the Packers vs. Seahawks.  The Seahawks already had three turnovers in the game and were down 16-0 going in to the second half.  They could have rolled over, gave up, allowed the naysayers to win, or created an energy in the stadium of doom to take over their hearts.  But, they didn’t.  They BELIEVED!   The Seahawks choose COURAGE and FAITH.  Ultimately they went on to win (22-28) humbly and full of emotion with the Super Bowl XLIX in their future. (ummm hmmm… Is that 81?  No the X before the L means…  Come on I learned Roman Numerals back in elementary school.  You expect me to remember what that is.  Use it or lose it.)

So what’s it going to be for you?  Choose!  “Despair or Faith?!”  “Anger or Forgiveness?!”  “Hate or Love?!”  “Intolerance or Compassion?!”  “Fear or Courage?!”  “Sadness or Joy?!”  “Apathy or Passion?!”  “Tears or Laughter?!”  CHOOSE!!!  Yeah I’m yelling, because it really is life or death right now.  Literally LIFE or DEATH!!!  Raise of hands, how many of you have had someone in your life pass away?  Wait why am I glossing it over.  How many people in your life have DIED (physically or just choosing not to live) in the past month alone or you had a friend experience that sort of news?  Not just our elders.  I’m talking about human love beings in their 30s, 40s, and 50s.  Shoot even young people in their teens or 20s.  To borrow a line from the movie Love Jones “Let me tell you somethin’.  This here, right now, at this very moment, is all that matters to me…” (sigh, I so love that scene) Well it’s urgent right now people.

Lemons1

Don’t Block the Blessings

We only have this life to live and the Universe has so much more out there for us if we only get out of the way and allow what already IS (that’s right your destiny is and has always been in the works) to flow in and enter our lives.  Stop blocking the beautiful blessings that are just waiting for you to open the door and let them smoothly in.  That peaceful, welcoming, and filled with love home.  Bountiful finances to take care of home and self and some extras to indulge in your tantalizing delights.  Your true love that you are so deserving of that allows your heart to breathe and flutter with life and living and growing.  A fly azzz or just getting you from A to Z vehicle.  A wondrous trip.  A beautiful family that is full of love, nurturing, and good times.  Toe curling (You ever felt that joint cramp up?  YIKES!!), HAWT, and passionate love making sessions.  That often desired and dreamed about career, hobby, or venture that’s about time that you make happen.

Lemons4

The Time is Now

Whatever it is for you, it is yours to be discovered and welcomed in to your inviting and accepting flow with the curious and exploring childlike eyes and open heart of yesteryear.  Those big bright yellow expensive (you see the cost of lemons in the grocery store lately) tart lemons with the taste hitting you right on the right side of your neck can ultimately be that gift from God to push you in the direction of WAKING YOU UP and LIVING YOUR DESTINY.  Your true calling.  What you were actually put on this earth for.  What???  You thought you were just dropped here for no apparent reason but to suck the life out of others?  Nuh uh my friends.  Your higher self is just waiting to be tapped in to and released.

So you’re struggling. You’re suffering.  You’re scared.  You’re uncertain.  You’re paralyzed.  But, you want to get out.  You NEED to get out.  You want to be FREE.  You want to BREATHE.  I bet you already received the message of your gift.  Matter of fact, I KNOW you have already received it.  But you’re just too darn afraid to listen.  Too afraid to hear because that would mean you would have to stretch and operate out of your self-imposed unrealistic comfort zone.  Too afraid of disappointments again.  Too afraid of those curled up in the bed crying like a baby pain moments again.

lemons2I get it.  But, the time is now.  We have absolutely no more time to waste on this nonsense.  I think we have already experienced enough painful lessons.  So Pause!  Breathe!  Be Still/Meditate!  Breathe!  Cry!  Breathe!  Listen!  Breathe!  Mourn!  Breathe!  Process!  Breathe!  Listen More!  Breathe!  LET GO!  SHIFT!  REJOICE!  LIVE!  BE!!!  DO!!!  LOVE!!!  Can you just taste it?  That delicious, sweet, soothing, close your eyes as it smoothly goes down, thirst quenching lemonade,  That’s right, just close your eyes and visualize it.  Umm…  Umm…  Umm… Ahhhhhhhhhh…  Chiiiiillle you got this!!!

Happy Super Bowl Sunday love beings!  I love you, but you have to love you too first.  ONWARD!!!  And, BeDoLove!  Namaste  –kcb

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” is a proverbial phrase used to encourage optimism and a can-do attitude in the face of adversity or misfortune.  Lemons suggest bitterness, while lemonade is a sweet drink.  The phrase was initially coined by Christian anarchist writer Elbert Hubbard in a 1915 obituary he penned and published for dwarf actor Marshall P. Wilder.  Although the expression was coined by Hubbard, many modern authors attribute the expression to Dale Carnegie who used it in his book How to Stop Worrying and Start Living.

Let it Go! Set it Free! Be Free!

Sometimes we got to let it go.  Let it go and purge.

Let Go of all those things, yes all of those things.  The clothes, the old letters, the stuffed animals, the boxes full of past treasures that we have collected throughout our life that now hold no true meaning.  And, that now present huge baggage that is weighing us down like quicksand we’ve accidental found ourselves in the middle of as we run through the forest as if we are suddenly caught in the middle of a B grade horror movie.  SCREAM!!!  Watching ourselves slowly fading out of sight that we can’t even breathe or even see what is truly meant to be.  Things can be beautiful and tell a million stories of past times that have shaped us extensively. But, now they are just memories.  Just history taking up space that we really need in order to breathe.  Get rid of that stuff.  Set it Free!  Now grab my hand so I can pull you up in to the fresh air of a new day that was created just for you so you may Be Free!

Let Go of all those people that we hold onto so tight with a Kung FO grip that we deem to be so valuable to our life yet so destructive and detrimental to our soul.  Our soul that is begging to expand and grow like a beautiful blooming flower, yet we hold it hostage and control it because of our fear to just Let Go as we welt away never to grow.  Yeah, we get to still love those children of God through and through, who in some way or another has added color and growth to our life—which we knew.  But, sometimes it is best to love at a far so that we may draw nearer to that real bright star that we can’t catch because our hands aren’t free.  Free to draw the person(s) closer to you who are anxiously waiting in line for you to open the door and ask them to come in.  Come into your heart!  Come into your soul!  Come enter your spirit so that together you may soar and grow and experience your destiny, whatever that may be.  Divine Order!  Set it Free!  Be Free!

Hurry before it’s too late.  Too late for the chance for new opportunities that can only be created when we open a space to have it enter and positively fill our soul and revive the spirit that has been begging to be saved from you.  Are you blocking the blessing?  Let It Go.  Release the grip, please.  It’s okay. For real you’ll see.  Set it free so that you may be free to be.  Free to BeDoLove!  kcb

set it free7


I was looking through some past writings/poems of mine and found this.  I wrote it back on February 10, 2010 at 1:30am.  I wonder what I was going through at that time.  But, I thought it quite appropriate to share as we enter the new year and we give way to new beginnings.

Introducing BeDoLove

“You must be willing to let go of the life we planned… so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” -Joseph Campbell

Who are you?  What do you love?  What is your “life’s purpose”?  What are you passionate about?  What is sacred to you?

Picture1Who Am I?

Hey there loves!  I’m finally here, present, and accounted for. Who am I? Well, I’ve been described as an “emancipated woman”, “paradox”, and “the DC Zagat Princess”. Sure these descriptions paint a nice picture of who I am, but I continue to question myself often with the five questions I started off with. I know there is so much more that my soul is guiding me to in order to be a contribution and an extraordinary being if only I would just listen, allow myself to be guided by my soul, and then act accordingly.

Telling myself or better yet listening for the truth hasn’t always been easy. But, the cool thing is I’ve never ceased to stop having a thirst to learn regardless of the hard lessons and truths learned about myself and life. Because at the end of the day for me it ALWAYS comes back to “what is my life’s purpose?”. I decided it’s to “Be” all that I can be by being a gift and inspiration to myself and the world. Just “Be” with no fear, no worry of judgement or how it looks. “Do” and create all that I can possibly “Do” in order to experience complete joy and peace so that I give others permission to “Do” the same. And, “Love”, “Love”, “Love”! “Love” is the ultimate common denominator of life. Without unconditional love (I’m still a work in progress in this area) for self, others, and life overall you will continue to experience a difficult and oftentimes unfulfilled journey. The opposite of “Love” is “Fear”. Well it’s time to choose. And, I’m choosing “Love” because it has already chosen me.

Picture2Picture3Time to Be About It

One way I’ve FINALLY decided to BeDoLove and live my “life’s purpose” is to create this blog. My quiet dream (I have many) has been my writing. It is one of my greatest gifts of expression that I am grateful for and one that many loved ones (including my soul and soulmates) have told me time and time again that they enjoy and have said “You should start a blog” or “You should write a book”.

Life is But a Dream Lived

I am an open and adventurous lover of life and now with this blog I truly get to be consistent with writing (I might need an accountability partner from time to time) and share my inner spiritual thoughts (maybe some poetry too) with you and balance it out with delicious food experiences, adventure, and fun.

People are amazing. And, this world we live in is truly amazing. I believe that you can have “falling in love” moments with life over and over and over again when we are open to experiencing it through living out our dreams and desires. One of my favorite quotes is “When was the last time you did something for the first time.”

Life just won’t be totally perfect, but we can have many perfect experiences. I haven’t always followed my true path, but it’s never too late to turn it around and truly dance to the amazing thumping beat of my own rhythmically flowing and freeing drum. We only have this life to live. I invite you to subscribe to my blog and follow me (and invite others) on this journey with the hope of me breathing life to my ever expanding thoughts and inevitably inspiring you to do the same. Let’s go BeDoLove! ONWARD!!!   KCB

Picture4Dedication to Those Who Have Inspired and Believed in Me

This blog is dedicated to my dear friend and spiritual guide Ron “MF” Davis who transitioned on to another space and time. It’s also dedicated to my beautiful friend Margo Owens who too transitioned on. They were (and continue to be as my angels) two of my biggest cheerleaders in life and allowed me to be and who both I know would love this blog (I invite them to stop through). This is also dedicated to each and every one of you who have said to me “You should start a blog!” Finally I’m listening and overcoming fear. Thank you all for not giving up on me. Thank you Mother, Father, God, The Universe!
