Success to me isn’t defined by the size of my home, television or bank account. It’s not defined by the kind of car I drive. It’s not defined by the clothes I wear either. To me, success is based on the service I give. I feel successful if just one person is inspired by me to unconditionally love themselves because people who loves themselves are the ones who make the world a better, kinder, brighter, more loving sparkly place for not only themselves, but everyone they come in contact with. To me, that is what success is all about.

When I get messages like this from people, I am reminded that I am serving my peeps the best I can. They are breathing easier and when others feel success I feel success too. We are all one.
“I wanted to say that the assignement to create the “I Love Me Pleasure List” is literally exactly what I have been needing. I have been losing sight of myself and doing things to please others and not myself. I went through a little phase where I felt like a schoolgirl trying to fit in with the popular crowd again, and I hated it. Now that I know the right way, to love, to the friends who lift me up like bubbles and spread joy rather than insecurity, I feel home again. thank you Virtual Love Fest.”
“I was going through a really rough time in my life. I lost my home to Sandy and the stress of it all caused my boyfriend and I to break up at the time. I was broke and living in a hotel room. I knew I needed some kind of guidance or path to pick myself up and not allow myself to fall into a very bad depression. I needed positivity in my life so I wouldn’t crumble.
I saw something a friend had posted on Facebook and tagged the Virtual Love Fest. I tried to scope it out but it was a closed group. Taraleigh contacted me about what the group entails and I think I just broke down and told T everything that was going on in my life and she listened and helped me see a light in my dark tunnel. I was worried about money so you generously gave me the gift of a free month and ever since I joined my life has been filled with light.
I was so lost and scared. and I honestly hated myself for being so depressed. All I knew was I lost my soulmate and I needed to love myself in order to love him and I didn’t know how to go about doing so. I was scared I’d lose him forever. I knew I wouldn’t end up alone but there’s something so amazing about him and us. Something I didn’t want to live without. I needed direction on living the life I love and I knew that was preventing me from loving myself. I felt stuck with nothing I was passionate about.
Now I am on a great path and have direction on what my life’s calling is.. My soulmate and I are back together and doing great! I really believe that the group gave me so much more than a therapist ever could have and that was were I was going to go before you contacted me!”
“You created a loving community where you lead the way in courageously being honest and real which makes a path for us to do the same. We don’t feel judged which makes it easier to share your true burdens and joys. Love and community defeats fear. You rock Taraleigh. Thanks to all you VLF’ers for taking the risk to share. We help each other transform.”
