Your uniqueness is what makes you valuable. Being able know and understand YOU is key to loving you, your life + life’s work well. Today I help you translate the inner voice of your soul.

Kim McMillen learned, “When I loved myself enough I began pouring my feelings into my journals. These loving companions speak my language. No translation needed.”

It what you hear, speak, speaks to you. It’s the voice you listen to.

Are you listening?

It’s not the listening you do with your head. But it’s the listening you do with your heart. The eyes of your soul.

Your S.O.L. Language…


See it.

It sees when you show up as you be…to see. And to speak up.

Can you express what you’re seeing?

Are you allowing yourself to be seen?

Can you see what your heart sees, hears, feels, and knows?

Write it.

It opens you up when YOU open up.

Open Up. Pour yourself onto the pages of your S.O.L.DATE JOURNAL.

It loves.

It loves because it listens, and allows you to listen and hear.

What do you hear?

What is your Love Language?

Give that to YOU, and you will begin to see in a way that allows you to be seen and heard.

Your S.O.L. language…the only thing missing is U.

What do U see?

What are U saying?
