Happy Valentine’s Day!! On this day of Love, I’m finally releasing “Loving Yourself Into Being” into the world on Amazon!! I’ve been pouring my heart and soul into this poetry book—180 pages & 112 poems— for the past 1 1/2 years and am so happy to finally share it with you!! It’s a collection of poems about self-love and compassion that dance playfully across the pages to bypass your brain and nestle into your heart. It is split into three sections—Love, Becoming and Miracles—with the intention of displaying various aspects of Love and cultivating your own self-love and compassion so that you awaken to the magic within yourself and your life. Pick up these poems any time you want to feel loved or remember your own deep capacity for compassion, kindness and Love.
I’m donating 10% of my book profits to the incredible non-profit Rise: America’s premier civil rights accelerator! Rise was founded by one of my best friends, Amanda Nguyen, who unanimously passed the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights and was nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize. While I penned this book into existence, Amanda and her team at Rise are providing tools to help others pen their own civil rights into existence! It is truly my honor to contribute to her exceptional cause with your help–together we’re making the world a better, safer, more loving place one book at a time.
I have to thank my dear friend, Leslie Bodner, for generously painting the stunning Calla Lily on my cover and providing the perfect cover to invite you into my poetry world! You can check out her breathtaking work at here.
Also, my deepest gratitude to Heather Swallow for your love and support on the table and being my healer and scribe while poems flowed out! I could not have asked for a more enjoyable writing process! Thank you to Tonia, Mike and Mason Hsieh, Sherwood Wang, Madison Greer, Alexia Usgaard, Debbie Lai and Lauren Asher for all of your editing help! There are so many other beautiful souls who helped me birth my poetry baby into this world that I want to thank too. Please know that you have my deepest love and appreciation for you. I’m so grateful you’re all in my life!
I hope you’re with all of your loved ones either in person or in spirit today and all days. And may you be extra gentle and loving with yourself!
