Do you think that would activate the power of receiving in your life? Remember, it's a muscle. One that we, as women, do not use enough. So come on my sassy sisters, I say this for you as much as I say it for myself. Let's start to practice receiving by giving to ourselves first. We hear it over and over again …

Here are 7 simple ways you can give to yourself:
I invite you to choose one or create your own. But more importantly, I invite you to give to yourself once a week (or more) from now on…
- Put the kids to bed five minutes early and treat yourself to a hot cup of peppermint tea or hot chocolate and don't skimp on the whipped cream!
- Receive a manicure and say YES to the 5 extra minutes of massage.
- Take a long walk with nothing but your desires and your dreams to keep you company.
- Ask your hubby to do the dishes and gift yourself with a rose-petal bath.
- Receive a foot massage (I just got hip to the $25/hour foot massage spots in LA — it's really a whole body massage w/your clothes on and it is good!)
- Take some time to write about your desires and why you want what you want (action is super, and it's important to remember your "why").
- Join a sisterhood, create community, and spend time in a sacred place of support.
