I'm so grateful for my Monday mornings with Michael. After teaching my 6am class and before my 10am I stop by and visit with Michael. He's a student of mine, but I'm also a student of his. I have learned so much from our mornings together... sipping tea, reading inspiring books, shifting perspective, talking about *ideas*, and sometimes crying a bit. Today we went on an adventure that involved beach plums, a beat up truck, singing with Margerito, and mosquitoes the size of birds. Michael is one of the few people who challenges me to *rise up*, and I'm so grateful that on a day where I woke up so sad that I was reminded by my dear friend and teacher that life is beautiful. And so it is. Aho.

- not being lovable
- not being beautiful
- not being worthy of love, and
Bleh. Add onto that I felt like my uterus was falling out, and I spilled the (delicious)(extremely hot) coffee on myself when I got back into my car. Get it together Cailin. Okay, then with my accountant - whom is my dear friend Pam Tracey, thank GOD for that. We spent three hours together, and the information was a bit more confusing, involved, and complicated than I had anticipated (are you noticing the trend here...). She might as well have been speaking fucking Chinese. It brought up a lot of fears for me....
- I am not strong enough to carry my own company
- I am too disorganized
- I'm not smart enough
- I have bitten off way more than I can chew
- I'm going to end up in the poor house
I got into my car and cried the whole way to my Aunt Megans house. I cried into the delicious eggplant parm that she'd made for me, and then I got my shit together and cried a few tears on my way to teach my evening YIN workshop. Go figure, we were working along the Kidney + Urinary Bladder Meridian, which is associated with FEAR, and it's counterpart....WISDOM. When you shift into your wisdom, your perspective shifts and you are able to move out of fear. I love teaching....because it teaches me. Thank you to the Universe for guiding this lesson plan into my path, and for providing me with all of the books, teachers, quotes, poems and bits of inspiration that were able to add to, inspire and invoke my inner WISDOM.

I know, I've been looking for one for a long.ass.time.
And though I have been open to having a partner, I can honestly say that I have been content (for the most part) being single (most days). Over the past few years I was never that impressed with the quality of love, affection, dedication or fidelity that was being given to all of my beautiful goddess girlfriends. But now, I have to acknowledge, that there are some STELLAR men out there that are taking GREAT care of all of the Divine ladies that I love. This morning I went out to breakfast with my darling Daniela and her husband, Drew. He treated all of us ladies like princesses, but you can tell by the way he talks, interacts, and cares for Daniela that she is truly his Queen. My best friend Bridgets husband, John, told her that she should do the month long teacher training in Mexico (despite the fact that they have a 10 month old baby), and that they would go down and figure it out as a family. He watches Isla on Fridays so that we can have "girl time" and always makes sure that his ladies are taken care of. Jimmy Bourgeious is ALWAYS treating his Queen Bee, Eileen, like the goddess that she is....Bill is tender and fierce with his love for Deb, and the list could go on....
|Drew treated his ladies to an EPIC breakfast at OC Surf Cafe.|

In a time when I thought that Chivalry was dead, there are a few men who are stepping up and showering their women with the love, respect and admiration that they deserve. It gives me hope...and makes me feel excited about partnership. Thanks guys for being such GOOD GUYS.
