You Are the Power

You Are the Power

The power is in you to change your world.

You have the power! It is in you.

This very power is what will give you the ability to enjoy 2017 more than any other year of your life.

No matter what you’re going through or dealing with, it’s your own beautiful light, that makes it possible to find the good every where you look.

Your self-contained power affects change all around you, including people that you’re close to and even the people that rub you the wrong way.

It is the secret, the answer, the WAY.

We have the power to change our own hearts and minds, as well as the hearts and minds of others. How, you may ask??

As we change the way we see things…things change.

We have the power to affect change by seeing the good, the beautiful, and the infinite possibility within.

Love is the answer and the power and the truth.

When you notice the beauty of the trees, the warmth of the sunshine, a child’s laugh, the smile lines on someone’s eyes, a hug from a friend, the taste of your morning coffee…you are tapping into a transformational force.

This is love force and it’s in you, around you, and a part of everything you are, do and see.

Love force encourages, strengthens and supports.

It’s the only thing that’s real.

When you see a person, look for the beauty in them no matter how deep you must look…when you see it, you’re unleashing a force that assists people to rise and become more of Who They Really Are (which is perfection, by-the-way). Not only does it help them, but it helps you do the same.

How much better can it get??

So 2017 has nothing on you, it’s a new year, waiting for you to see the good in it.

Everything is going to be alright.

Take the higher ground.

Look for the best in everyone and everything…and you’ll find it.

Give the benefit of the doubt and pick the story that makes you feel the best, and that “story” will most definitely have something to do with seeing the good in yourself and others.

Stand as witness for the light in others.

You seeing the good in others makes the good in you blaze bright and bold.

And this, our friend, is the way 2017 will indeed be the best year of your life, for this is the only way it can be, because YOU are the power.

We see you!

With much love,

Tiff & Jack

Both Sides of Authenticity

Both Sides of Authenticity

Living authentically has been scary on occasion for Jack and me, especially as public figures. We never know how we’ll be received. We never know who our haters may be.

We live authentic lives because it’s the only path to true happiness.

Happiness is my deepest desire, and I’ll do what ever it takes to be happy.

Living in what another person wants for me makes me feel dead and unhappy. I won’t do it. Ever.

The reason we share our journey is so that YOU might find hope in living your truth. We love our human family, and we’re here as a support to you that want to create loving and abundant lives.

We often talk about our joy and happiness and how blessed we are, which may have left you with the feeling or idea that we’re just lucky and things are always easy.

Nope.

Life’s not always a cake walk for us.

Being authentic, also means getting real.

Here are some real facts for you…

A year ago Jack’s sister died, and it was devastating. This month also marks the death of his dad, when Jack was 11.

We were terrified to tell the family of Jack’s FTM transition in fear that they would feel like this would be like another death to them. And sure enough there has been talk of exactly that. Now there are just a few in his family that will talk to us. We’ve been wading through much rejection, and it isn’t easy, in fact it’s heartbreaking for Jack and hurts my feelings that I’m not openly accepted or recognized as an important part of Jack’s life.

I think we’re pretty freaking awesome and have a lot of love to give, but we won’t conform to what others think we should be or do, so often it means, we’re out. This SUCKS!

When Jack and I together made the decision for him to transition, I knew it was right, but had to walk in pure faith all the same.

The fears that came up in me were hellacious. My biggest fear would scream that Jack might not want me anymore. I wondered how the testosterone would make him act. What if it made him mean? I was so afraid.

It took me a while to let go of the idea of “Suzi.” But now, it’s just Jack and it all feels so right! Three months in, and I count this transition as the greatest gift of our lives.

There are days I do break down and cry because I feel so tired of the backlash and fear of other people in regards to how I choose to live my life.

“Can’t you see that I’m more happy than I have every been? Why can’t you see me?”

Sometimes the fears that come up with running a business, being the mother of 6 children, running a home, writing articles, making videos, constantly doing my inner work so that I can stay in alignment and teach, and supporting my husband through his changes, is so overwhelming I feel like I’ll be crushed by the illusions I buy into.

Sometimes my fears get the best of me.

If it weren’t for Jack, as my partner in it all, the one who helps me keep perspective, and for all the details he takes care of, I couldn’t do any of this. He truly makes my life run smooth.

He treats me like a queen.

People see how in love we are and think it’s always been like this.

NO ONE has a clue as to what we’ve had to release and what we’ve had to do to be where we are.

It’s true, we’re deeply in love and have an amazing life but only because we’re willing to do the hardest things you could possibly imagine.

We live a life of trusting God and the universe implicitly.

We were both in difficult marriages to other people for 20 years before we found each other.

When we did find each other, we had to let go of every single way we’d always done things, in order to be together.

Do you know what that was like? OMG! There are no words to describe it, a true fire walk of epic proportions.

The great thing about all of this… We now have the answer to the hard question, “How do you create Relationship Bliss?”

This is part of our authenticity. Make no mistake, our life isn’t just a cup of tea.

It takes effort to choose happiness and live it.

What are you willing to do to be happy?

Are you willing to walk into the unknown?

Can you get real with the people around you?

Can you handle a bit of rejection?

If you said yes to these questions, you will have happiness and bliss!

You can start being authentic here, ARE YOU BRAVE ENOUGH to tell us one thing that others might not know about you? C’mon, please share down below.

Remember you’re not alone in this life. We’re right here with you, wanting to make things easier.

Loves and kisses,

Tiff
