Yes, I realize that yesterday was the official day to celebrate love. In Mexico, it is celebrated as the Dia del Amor y Amistad (Day of Love and Friendship).

I love this.

I love the idea of celebrating ALL kinds of love rather than focusing only on romantic love.

So this is my love note to you.

I love you for recognizing that something could be different in your life – for honouring the desire for change.

I love you for showing up for yourself – whether by reading the guide you downloaded, watching the Drink Less Success videos or working through the book.

I love you for saying yes to yourself – for recognizing that something could be different.

I love you for listening to that whisper or cry for change and taking a step in that direction.

I love you for subscribing and reading these words.

I love you.

However deserving, or worthy you feel in this moment, whether you stuck to your intentions this weekend or not, if you are exactly where you thought you’d be at this moment in time or desiring more – I love you.

I know what it feels like to be consumed by self-doubt, to be stuck in a shame spiral, to hear the negative self-talk at a deafening volume inside your own head.

I know it can feel lonely sometimes. I know you are doing something that not everyone in your life understands.

I know that it’s like to question whether change is possible – whether you can truly step into the person that you want to become.

I know how much it helps to have at least one person in your corner, saying yes.

Yes, you can and you will.

Someone who sees you and isn’t scared. Someone who sees you and won’t judge.

Even when you ‘mess up.’

So this is my love note to you dear.

Take a deep breath and receive it.

Inhale love as you read this. Fill your heart. Exhale stress, doubt and worry.

Right now.

Repeat at least 3 times.

You are loved. Yesterday, today and every day.

And you are not alone.
