Welcome back to The Road2Wholeness Blog!  Thank you for taking the read!

Today I want to discuss the odor of brokenness.  You may ask, "The odor of brokenness??  What is that?"

Yes, I repeat... "The Odor of Brokenness"!  Sometimes although we recognize that we are fractured and clearly broken, we may still insist on trying to get in the game.  For example, let's consider athletes when they get injured.  Perhaps it's some super important point in their season or career and if it was left up to them, they would probably get suited up and jump in the game but no; instead the doctors gives strict orders that they are not to play.  Luckily for them there are professionals and procedures in place to keep them from prematurely re-entering the game and possibly further injuring themselves.  In life however, when we are emotionally injured there is no one there to prevent us from getting back in the game while we…

Today I'm discussing a few subjects that I believe are strongly connected but may at times get wrongly misrelated.  The Naked Love concept is something that came to me many years ago.  The premise was to 1. Move from the idea of loving ourselves from a place of logic (example: "I'm not going to drive while drunk.") to a place of naked love (example: "Why must I get drunk?") and 2. To encourage people towards self-acceptance and self-appreciation by offloading some of our beauty regimens and cover ups so that we might really become more comfortable with what we were given.  A similar initiative that addresses in part the second half of the Naked Love Concept has emerged in recent years and is generally known as the "body-love" initiative.  In this blog, I would like to address how we might embrace the idea of body-love without getting stuck there at the risk of not addressing our health or even …
