the LIVE LOVESPEAKS blog

At the root of love is life. In order to live, we have to love. Love is hard. Love is work and love can be messy. But, love is always worth it. When we live our life with love, love becomes comfortable, safe, and joyful. We laugh more and live more. We forgive more. To have a career we love, to fall in love, or to love ourselves, we have to be willing to do the hardest work of our lives. In the end, love is all that matters. Let love speak in your life and join me as we do the work together and enjoy living lovespeaks.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic I had a root canal. Funny how I would happily trade COVID-19 for a root canal right now. Perspective is so wise. During the procedure, my endodontist was telling his dental assistant a story about the time he went to a concert of the...
