What if you could tap into what TRULY MATTERS to you? ALL OF YOU. Today I’ll show you how. Your whole soul matters.


That’s right, your whole soul matters.

Today I was following a city bus, and this is what it said on the back: You were made for more.

I love this! And I couldn’t wait to share this S.O.L. STORY with you today!

Not only were you made for more. You were also made from so much than you give yourself credit for.

What if you could commit to experiencing and exploring your  “MORENESS”…your wholeness…ALL OF YOU?

What if you didn’t have to go out and try to find something to fix or fill a HOLE?

But instead, you committed to receiving your wholeness today. Imagine what that would like.

Imagine you being made for so much more. You being made from so much more.

Is this exciting or what?

Your WHOLE soul matters.

Not only your soul being whole…as we discussed in EPISODE 017, but that you also recognize and receive it. So you FEEL it.

Why? Because when you feel it you can to heal it.

Is it possible that you’re NOT recognizing all aspects of you, because it hurts?

We all experience this at times.

It’s okay to feel it.

When you begin to feel it, you heal it. You also recognize and receive your wholeness.

Often we avoid feeling our wholeness because we think certain things don’t matter, or that WE don’t matter. Then we begin the repetitive cycle of running and trying to find “the answer.”

Or trying to find “the fix”…

I know, I’ve done this too. But you don’t have to.

What if you didn’t need fixing?

What if your wholeness was already there, and you could finally begin to receive all aspects of you? They ALL matter.

Even the parts that don’t feel so good. They matter.

The parts that aren’t so beautiful. They matter.

The parts that are painful. They matter.

So are the parts that seem ugly, or broken down. They all matter because YOU MATTER.

Think about your little toe. If you’ve ever broken or stubbed your little toe, you know how much that little toe matters.

That little painful toe affects everything, and can kind of ruin it for everyone, right?

So what would happen if you went to that little “ouchie spot”, that bruised or broken place, and gave it your attention…because it matters?

Just because your toe is bent or bruised doesn’t mean YOU as a whole are bruised.

When the WHOLE comes around the place that’s hurting and says, “We’re here for you,” it receives all aspects of your wholeness.

Enter into your wholeness.

Because your WHOLE SOUL matters. All of it. Every bit of YOU.

Your whole S.O.L. (Sipping On Life) also matters.

You can go through life sipping on it, drowning on it, drowning in it, thirsty or hungry for more. You can run for more, from more, or we can stop and say, IT’S ENOUGH…I AM…YOU ARE…WHOLE.

Receive your wholeness.

Look at it from the all-encompassing perspective that it ALL matters. You’re valuable with all of it. Even the parts that you think are unworthy of expressing, or those parts that feel broken and make you feel like damaged merchandise.

If you’re metaphorical “little toe” is broken, then it’s time for your WHOLENESS to come around it, and HEAL it.

Then you can say, IT FEELS GOOD TO BE WHOLE.

It feels GREAT to be whole. I can tell you this from my own personal experience…YES, IT FEELS GREAT TO BE WHOLE.
