I'm Tessie -Welcome home!

Two simple words have made an incredible difference in my life over the last two years. The two words are love deeply and I like to think of them as my life mission.

I found myself feeling overwhelmed, pulled in many different directions, and wanting to show up in a more meaningful way for the people around me. As I prayed, meditated, and spent some quiet time thinking, I decided to create a life mission.

What’s a life mission?

It’s two words that instantly remind me of what’s important. It reminds me of how I want to show up in the world. It’s simple, easy to remember, and immediately puts things into focus.

My life mission: LOVE DEEPLY

My life mission is to “love deeply”. It’s how I want to show up at home, work, church, and inside my community. Every time I remind myself to “love deeply” it instantly puts things into perspective.

Loving deeply has 3 simple steps. It’s all about spending time with people, holding space, and letting them know they’re loved. Here’s what it looks like to me:

  1. Listen
    • hold space, listen with curiosity, try not to think about what I’m going to say next. Just listen
  2. Encourage
    • give love, remind people they’re not alone, give themselves grace
  3. Uplift
    • share truth, let people know that they are enough exactly the way they are

That’s it! Pretty simple right? Well simple enough to understand, but harder to implement. Even though I have far to go in loving deeply, having this simple phrase has helped to center me on a daily basis.

Do you have a life mission?

If so, I’d love to hear about it! If not, you are welcome to steal mine or create one of your own.
