Carla Hameed  Be kind. Show gratitude. Love yourself.

This was harder than running a marathon. I think I sweat more during this clip than a marathon as well. I know I have a lot of great things to say and share but if I continue to listen to that negative dialogue in my head I will continue to live in fear. So I'm taking on loving the fear. Fear of failing, fear of looking bad, fear of making mistakes, fear of making the wrong decisions. These are just opportunities to learn, grow and contribute. At the end of this is say "you will be ok". I meant. "You will be great and that you ARE GREAT! If you can tell yourself all the bad things about yourself you can also start telling yourself about your good qualities. If you are thinking that you don't have any good qualities, then you aren't having an honest conversation with yourself. We all have good qualities! Start with loving yourself. Forgiving yourself. Be kind to yourself. .

What I love about these love post is that it has me reflecting on love a lot. I originally thought I would be writing about love in relationships (and I still probably will) but what keeps coming up is self love. Self love is your foundation to any relationship. This week has been one of those weeks where I find myself being a little harder on myself, comparing a little more and loving myself a little less. I have been reflecting on how I show myself love and what actions to I do to honour that love. (This question came up a lot this week ...."am I choosing this for me or for others") Some of the things that I love to do is collaborating, talking to friends/family/ strangers, connecting with people and getting CURIOUS! I love learning what makes people do the things they do, or react the way they react, or drives people to do the inspiring things they do. I'm fortunate enough to have had those things in my day today. This is @tennilleread she's pretty incredible and I have the honour of calling her my friend. Not only did I get to hang out with her and have an incredible afternoon of conversations but we are also working together on a project that's pretty special. πŸ€—. (Stay tuned!) I want everyday to be like this and it's going to happen:) What do you love to do? .

Choose love. Choose love for yourself and you will be able to choose love for others.
Yesterday another terrible act of violence happened. 17 dead. Now there is more fear, more hate, more anger. Take away the guns, I agree. If people weren't living in fear and were living with love do you think these things would happen? When does the cycle stop? Choose love. "Hate cannot drive out hate; only LOVE can do that" MTKJ .

Are you making choices so that others love you or are they honouring the love you have for yourself? There's a reason why we need to take care of ourselves before we take care of others. Being truly authentic with why you are doing what you are doing will give you access to truly loving others. If you have any questions about this please feel free to DM me. I would be happy to discuss this with you:) really the picture has no relevance to what I'm writing about except that it gets you curious to what I'm writing. Which is what I want:) #getcurious #becurious #28daysoflove #love #belove #loveisinyou #letstalk #loveyourself #loveisinus #youarewholeandcomplete #bekindtoyourself #letstalkaboutlove #selflove #behonest #beauthentic

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday Friday, Saturday, Sunday....hmmmm there is no SOMEDAY on the calendar.
What is in the way of you telling someone that you love them? Most likely you are in the way. There are only two sure things, 1. We are born. 2. We all will die. Don't wait for someday to tell the people in your life that you love them. That someday may not happen. Don't wait for someday to start loving yourself. Start today. Start now. Remember love is in all of us. Just look. I LOVE YOU! ❀️

This is my family (my brother is missing from this photo) and I love them so much. I know I don't share my love enough with them and I'm actually going to make sure I do that more often. I'm incredibly grateful for each and everyone of them. My sisters and my brothers raised me and I would have to say they did a friggen great job. Thank you @dayanahameed @sdsaces7 @guchi_lake you have given me so much love even when I couldn't see it as love. I'm so inspired by your strength and relentlessness. You guys are awesome! My nieces and my nephews are simply the best people. I love you @itsvinniev @essance_lala @sebastian.tomicic @juliantomicic. My mom! Well....I've have an interesting relationship with her but the older I get the more I realize the powerhouse that she is. She's actually a superhero without a cape.

Unconditional love ❀️ This is my dog Koda. He loves me unconditionally and I love him unconditionally. Sometimes I get annoyed when he follows me everywhere and I trip over him and I haven't been happy with him when he has eaten my boots but there is nothing that he can do that would take away the love I have for him. I was going to go on more and write but I actually just want to leave it there. Who do you love unconditionally? I love my Koda bear ❀️. .

Love is in the air and it has nothing to do with Valentine's Day ❀️❀️❀️ I'm loving people reaching out to me to share their love stories. It's actually fuelling me so much, thank you! πŸ™πŸΌ. Some examples of love that people are sharing are new relationships, engagements, conversations with friends, family conworkers that weren't going to happen unless they approached the conversation with love. Ahhhh I'M LOVING IT!!! Thank you for sharing with me. It really makes me so happy. I love you! #28daysoflove #love #belove #loveisinyou #letstalk #loveyourself #loveisinus #youarewholeandcomplete #bekindtoyourself #letstalkaboutlove #selflove #iloveyou #loveisintheair #youareloved

It's easy to be proud of ourselves and love ourselves when we stay on track with our schedule and goals, when we get a good review at work, when we fit into those jeans perfectly and when that person you went on a date with replies to your text. However, how do you feel about yourself when you get don't fulfill on your goals? When you make a mistake? When you don't get a reply from your date the next day? When those jeans don't fit?! What do you say to yourself? Do you beat yourself up? Do you tell yourself you aren't good enough? Do you tell yourself you aren't attractive? What dialogue do you have with yourself? Are you aware of how often you talk to yourself negatively?

I know I have had a poor dialogue with myself most my life. I just didn't realize how much of it was going on until I took on having a positive dialogue with myself. I was an ass to myself. Here's the thing. We talk to ourselves in ways we (most, I hope) would never talk to our friends. Can you practise self love for one minute in the morning? Tell yourself you love yourself, tell yourself that you are hot AF, tell yourself that you are smart, kind, funny, interesting, courageous? Whatever it looks like for you. Notice if a minute seems like a long time, commit to a minute even if you have to say the same thing over and over. Try that for a week. See what happens.
When something happens listen to that voice in your head. If that voice is saying something that you wouldn't say to a friend, imagine you talking to your best friend or better yet? a very young version of yourself. Would you tell the young version of yourself that you aren't good enough? Or that they don't matter? Loving yourself is the access to accepting love and loving others.
I really noticed the negative dialogue I had going on with myself when I started listening to myself on the mat and when I ran. Instead of just stopping that voice I practise being my own cheerleader of love and compassion. It's making me feel way better than telling myself to push harder and to get better and be better and blah blah blah!

love yourself! ❀️I love you! #28daysoflove #love #belove #loveisinyou #letstalk #loveyou #selflove

Friendship love! How much do you love your friends? Do you love them because of how they make you feel? Do you love them because you loving making them feel special?
I'm very fortunate to have incredible friends in my life that I LOVE and they LOVE me. If you know me you know my friendships mean the world to me.
Once upon a time I thought I was a fantastic friend. I thought because I was always there for them or because I made time for them or because I titled them as friends that made the friendship a friendship. What I have learned though is friendship is so much more than that. Friendship is not only being there for them but letting them into your life to be there for you. I would listen to my friends in whatever they were dealing with but I was never vulnerable with them. I was the "strong one" I couldn't let them see my "weaknesses". I was the problem solver. Or so I thought. In reality I was creating a wedge between myself and my friends with my inauthenticity. Me being that way was more about ME! It made me feel good to help. It made me feel like I mattered. It made me feel worthy of something. ME ME ME! I resisted the sharing because it was more about ME not trusting them. I didn't trust them because I didn't trust myself. I didn't love myself. I didn't believe that I can show all my sides and still be loved. Which was totally unfair to them because all they ever did was love me and trust me with their vulnerability. Me thinking I was the strong one was me actually being the weak one. They were the brave and courageous ones to be so open. Ugh they were (and still are) incredible!
Being in a true loving friendship is being you're perfectly imperfect self and never worrying about what the other person is thinking because you are in love with their perfectly imperfect self. Being vulnerable is beautiful. Being vulnerable is LOVE.
I still find myself at times not opening up and trying to "have it all together" but my friends will now call bullshit on that. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ. And I will be forever grateful for it (maybe not in that exact moment) because their intentions are always LOVE....love they have for me! πŸ™‹πŸ» I love you!

Don't wait for a "special" day to tell someone you love them or to do something special for them. The person you are everyday matters more than the person you are once in a while. Gestures don't have to be grandiose, just thoughtful:) show your love, show your gratitude, show your kindness. Be be love, be grateful, be kind. #28daysoflove #love #belove #loveisinyou #letstalk #loveyourself #loveisinus #youarewholeandcomplete #bekindtoyourself #letstalkaboutlove #selflove #iloveyou #shareyourlove #showyourlove #spreadlove

Don't be afraid of love.
Yesterday I posted about going from one relationship to another. I used to see those ended relationships as failed relationship. Today I can whole heartedly say I've never had any failed relationships and I was just living, learning and loving myself a wee bit more each time. I learned so much from each partner. I learned about them, relationships, and myself and myself in relationships.
Are you avoiding relationships because you don't want to get hurt? Don't fear relationships. Love the fear. Love yourself. Most importantly BE YOURSELF! Would you want to meet someone, fall in love with them and then find out that all the things they said they loved to do is actually the complete opposite, but they thought that was the thing that was going to make you like them? Probably not. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ. So don't do that. Cut it out! Always be you, be AUTHENTIC! The things that make you weird make you special. We are all weird and so perfectly imperfect. If the relationship ends, it ends. It means nothing about you or them. I totally get that your heart may hurt. I've been there πŸ™‹πŸ» and it feels like it will never heal but I promise you it will. Surrender to the hurt. Really show yourself unconditional love in those times. Talk to yourself the way you would talk to your best friend. Be proud that you were fearful in being open to love, but you faced the fear. Be proud that you were vulnerable, vulnerability is beautiful. Be proud of yourself for wanting a loving relationship and going after it. The reality is we don't lose by loving (yourself and anothers) you lose by not trying. You are LOVE! #28daysoflove #love #belove #loveisinyou #letstalk #loveyourself #loveisinus #youarewholeandcomplete #bekindtoyourself #letstalkaboutlove #selflove #lovethefear #beweird #iloveyou

Love is in us!

Your love is not outside. It is deep within you. It is in all of us! Yes! Even that person who is always a poop head or that other person that is "toxic". Love is in every single one of us.
How many of us have gone from relationship to relationship? πŸ™‹πŸ» Every time a relationship would end I would tell myself I would stay single for a while. Then shortly after get into another relationship. Here's the thing. I love love right?! So being in an intimate relationship made sense? Right? Well...not exactly. What I wasn't being was authentic about loving myself. I was looking for love on the outside. Do you know that cliche "you can't love other people until you love yourself" well cliches are cliches for a reason:) ITS TRUE! In my past relationships I would blame them for not loving me enough or showing me enough love or whatever it was. There was a lot of blame and what I wasn't doing was taking any responsibility for how I really thought of myself. I have been in relationships with really great men, and the reality is they had no chance with me, and not because of anything they didn't do or did do, but because of the lack of self love I had for myself. I'm not saying that if I loved myself I would have lived happily ever after with any of my exes. But what I am saying is that I blamed a lot of the "problems" on them because I was looking at them for love because I wasn't willing or knowing how to love myself. LOVE YOURSELF! You are whole and complete. You don't need someone else to make you feel worthy. You ARE worthy! LOVE YOURSELF! #28daysoflove #loveyourself #loveisinus #youarewholeandcomplete #bekindtoyourself #letstalkaboutlove #selflove

It's February! And I want to talk about LOVE! Who do you love? Do you express your love? How do you express love? How do you receive love? Are you waiting for something to feel love? Are you loving yourself? How do you express love to yourself? Do you only love your friends and family when they aren't upsetting you? Are you in love? Why do you love? Why do you want love? What is love to you? For this month I'm going to talk explore different conversations about love. Anyone who knows me knows I love LOVE. However, I'm guilty of not always loving myself and I mean unconditionally loving myself. There's a lot of doubt talk that goes on in my head...get out!! Why is it easy for me to show love to others and not always easy to show love to myself. Stay tuned for more love posts ❀️ #28daysoflove #love #belove #loveisinyou #letstalk

Day 31 days of kindness. I got to explore kindness to strangers, family members, co-workers, friends, animals, the environment and to myself. Some days I questioned whether I was actually making a difference and then I would realize that just because I don't get a response it doesn't mean there isn't an impact. The reality is, you may never know the impact of your actions but remember what your intentions are. I think we can all agree, the world needs more kindness and love. Thank you for participating with #31daysofkindness #bekind #belove #morekindness #morelove #lesshate #mindfulness

Day 25 of kindness. Show kindness by expressing gratitude to someone. Thank you all for taking the time to read these post, and sharing them, liking them and/or commenting on them. I really really REALLY appreciate all of it πŸ™πŸΌ Thank you for your kindness. #bekind #31daysofkindness #begrateful #belove #expressgratitude #thankyou

Good Morning! On Christmas morning my family and I made lunch bags and handed them out to those living on the streets of Toronto. We went out again this morning and we are committed to doing this every month. We have been telling other family members and friends and we are so touched by people's willingness to support us. If you are interested in coming out or doing it yourself, or donating or even just having a conversation please feel free DM me. Thank you to @farmhousetavern for donating biscuits! πŸ™πŸΌ thank you thank you thank you! #toronto #begrateful #beingofservice #givingback

Day 19 of kindness. Be present. Are with a friend/family right now and on your phone? I do it too πŸ™‹πŸ». I make excuses why I need to be on the phone and make justifications blah blah blah. Put your phone down. Turn it over. If you need to make sure you are on time for something else set an alarm for when you have to leave so that you aren't worried about the time and instead give your time and show your kindness and love through your presence. Get curious, get engaged, be present with the people your life. It's a beautiful gift and it cost nothing. #31daysofkindness #31daysofrandomactsofkindness #bepresent #bekind #belove #begrateful #thankyou #youreawesome #mindfulness

Day 17 of kindness. Acknowledgement someone who makes you smile, laugh, feel special. Sometimes people don't realize that they have that impact. Tag or share with someone who makes you smile πŸ˜€. #bekind #31daysofkindness
#31daysofrandomactsofkindness #youmakemesmile #youreawesome

Day 16 of kindness. Be kind to yourself. The greatest gift you can give yourself is time. Do something nice for yourself. Whether that be breaking a sweat at a sweet workout class, being kind to your body at a yoga class, snuggling up on the couch with a warm drink and a book, Taking a relaxing bath, or just giving yourself the space to be with silence. Whatever it is, don't forget to take care of yourself. What does showing kindness to yourself look like? Today I got the opportunity to workout with my #ABE buddy again! @kjacobag you're awesome! This is my kindness to myself and my body. #31daysofkindness #31daysofrandomactsofkindness #bekindtoyourself #bekindtoyourmind #bekindtoyourbody #loveyourself #youreawesome

#mlkday today I spoke in a class at my old high school about self doubt, purpose, and leadership. Some student (and most people actually) have it that they aren't the ones to make a difference, but someone else can. What if Martin Luther King thought that? YOU can make a difference. It doesn't have to be a grandiose gesture. It doesn't have to go viral. It doesn't have to cost anything. "You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." #youcanmakeadifference #martinlutherking #bekind #belove #happymlkday #purpose #leadership

Day 11 of kindness. Leave a bag or box of granola bars in your car to share with those living on the street. Small actions can make a big difference for someone's life. Share acts of kindness that you have done that we can all practice. #bekind #31daysofkindness #31daysofrandomactsofkindness #showlove #belove #showgratitude #livingwithpurposeandpassion #becompassionate #smallactschangetheworld
