I’m not only expressing gratitude for the people who have been on this journey of aligning daily with love, abundance, and peace, I want to show my gratitude for all the people who supported me on this journey whether they read what I wrote or not. I’m grateful for having people who show up to support me in so many different ways. I know the journeys I take can feel “out there” to some, but that’s because these are not meant to be their journeys—at least not right now. If it resonates, it is. I’m grateful I have people who honor and respect me for whatever journey I choose to go on. Having people who I know accept me for who I am is a true blessing. This past year has brought me some of the most amazing relationships, because the healthier I get, the healthier my relationships are.

A special thank you to the never-ending support of my family, friends, and partner in love along with all my amazing and thoughtful followers of FromALovingPlace.com. I also want to thank anybody who chooses love, abundance, and peace over fear, lack, and separation as much as possible, I appreciate your contribution to the light in the world. I’m even grateful for the people who show me what aligning with fear, lack, and separation makes possible, because it’s a great reminder for me of the importance of staying on the path of love, abundance, and peace.

With SO MUCH Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #364

I’m grateful for this journey. I find myself saying this a lot no matter what journey I’m talking about. I have referred to creative, intellectual, financial, social, occupational, physical, spiritual, emotional, environmental, and parental journeys. Each journey offers so many gifts and learning experiences. My 365-day journey of daily aligning with love, abundance, and peace is coming to a close and once again, I’m grateful for this journey. I’ve been amazed at where this journey has taken me day to day. I love how much more aware I’ve become of when I’m aligning with the energy of love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation. I’m able to stop mid-thought and take a new direction. It really is AMAZING! I no longer have to get stuck in any thought cycle because I have tools to get out of any unwanted spin. It doesn’t mean I won’t forget to use my tools from time to time, I definitely do. The blessing is that I don’t stay in the spin as long.

My inner world is so much healthier since I started making the daily effort to align with love, abundance, and peace. I’m so grateful for this amazing journey.

Today, I commit to enjoying the journey. What better can anyone do for themselves than to enjoy the journey? Enjoying the journey is CHOOSING to align with the energy of love, abundance, and peace over fear, lack, and separation as often as possible. It’s not about denying where I am at any particular moment, but it is about embracing it all. I grow from my pains and my pleasures. Each one becomes a blessing in it’s own way, because each experience brings opportunities to grow.

Enjoying the journey is about being present to experience as much as possible. I can only ever do the best I can in the moment. Some moments the best I can do is sit and zone out. Other times, the best I can do is help a person process a difficult situation. Then there are the times when I get to experience the AWE. Whatever the moment brings me, that’s my reality in the moment to do what feels right. Why not embrace it all? What does denying any part of what is do for me? NOTHING! I love growing and expanding on my journey, so I will continue this journey of living from a loving place one moment at a time.

Moments like the one below are an amazing reminder to stay present. If I didn’t to walk up to see this, I would have missed it. From the parking lot, all I could see was a pathway, a large area of grass and a view of the ocean. I had to walk up to the edge in order to see this amazing view. Then from there, I spotted a wonderful path. I walked all the way down passed that lighthouse and loved every second of it. I didn’t let anything else happening in the outside world get to me, I just enjoyed the journey.

I’m given opportunities to experience things with every passing day. It’s my choice what I want to do with the time I’m given. It’s my choice how I want to process the experiences that I’m meant to experience. If I experienced something, I was meant to experience it, because that is what happened. All I have to do is figure out how I want to process what happened to best serve my journey.

  • How do I want to look at it?
  • How does it serve me to look at things the way I’m choosing to in this moment?
  • How does how I’m choosing to look at things make my life better?
  • How do I process the pain in my life from a loving place?

These are just some of the questions I ask myself to help me embrace and enjoy my journey. If you’ve been on this journey with me at any point over these last 364 days, I hope that you are noticing what just subtle changes in perspective make possible in your life. Of all the the journeys I’ve taken, understanding the power of perspective is the one that has changed my life in the most INCREDIBLE ways. The better I get at seeing that I’m choosing a perspective that is causing me suffering, the faster I’m able to turn it around find my way out of the fear, lack, and separation and move into the love, abundance, and peace.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

I’m grateful for the process. I used to dread the future, but now I love watching how it all unfolds. I’ve learned to follow my inner callings and trust that there is a reason I am where I am at every moment, even when I find myself binge watching a show. There is something I get from watching the relationships playing out in front of me. If I wasn’t meant to watch what I did, I wouldn’t have seen it. Just like if I am meant to read a book, I will. If I’m not meant to read it, I won’t. If something or someone is meant to be a part of my path, I will experience whatever life presents to me—even if at the time I don’t understand why. Living in the process is about being engaged in the journey instead of focused on the destination.

There are so many amazing discoveries and insights that are revealed. What I’ve realized is that we are not powerless on this road. We are making choices all along the way that create the opportunities that are ahead and it all depends on where our energy is aligned to how these opportunities will reveal themselves.

I used to believe the lessons had to cause me great pain in order for me to absorb them, but then I discovered that wasn’t true. It depended on if my energy was aligned with love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation. When I began paying close attention to the process, I saw how amazing it is to choose differently in a moment and watch how things changed. When I’m aligned with the energy of love, abundance, the process reflects the energy.

Seeing all this didn’t happen overnight and it doesn’t mean that I don’t lose myself from time to time in the energy of fear, lack, and separation. It just happens less and for shorter periods of time when it does. The one thing that used to trip me up is the labels. When I gave myself a label or someone else gave me a label, I would often try to live up to what my or what I thought society defined the label as. When that happened, my process became about how to make others happy out of fear, lack, and separation. I started becoming aware of the process, the the tools to make things better started presenting themselves to me along the way. I’m grateful for seeing both my healthy and unhealthy processes, because only when I understand how the process works, do I know what to do to make them better.

Today, I commit to engaging in the process. All it takes to engage in the process is to consciously watch where I am and what I am doing throughout the day. Awareness is my survival tool. If I watch my process and I don’t like the results I’m getting, I can make different choices and observe the difference in the way I feel, think, and act. I can also observe the differences of how people reflect back to me what I put out. If I want to change what is reflected back to me, I have to change what I’m thinking and doing, my feelings change with whatever energy I’m aligning to either love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation.

When I find joy in the process, I become a beacon of joy. I lead joy to me. When I find misery in the process, I become a beacon of misery. I lead misery to me. Hmmmm…which will I choose? When I engage and stay aware, I give myself the access to choose differently in a moment. If I’m not engaged, I can easily put energy where I don’t want it to go. I really try to avoid doing that.Throughout the day, I’m going to be the observer of the process step by step, choice by choice.

  • Where are my thoughts, beliefs, and actions taking me in this moment?
  • What am I creating in this moment?
  • How is my energy aligning with what I want reflected back to me?
  • Who is in my life and what are they mirroring back to me right now?
  • Is there anything I want to do differently in the next moment?

Sometimes what we need to see in the process is scary, ugly, informative, beautiful, magical, etc. Just because we experience something that is challenging doesn’t mean that experience isn’t for our highest good. I’ve experienced and seen some very scary things in my life, but what is amazing now is that I’m seeing how they were all a part of the creative process of my journey. I look back in AWE of how some of these pieces are coming together now. I’m finding more and more gifts each step of the way.

If you are reading this post, it’s a part of your process. If you think a friend of yours should read this post and they don’t, it’s because it’s not a part of their process. The experiences we are meant to have on our journeys will happen. That’s part of the reason I don’t feel tied to who reads what I write and who doesn’t. I know whoever is meant to read it will, and whoever isn’t won’t. It’s just that simple. I don’t know what others will have to go through to get to a place where they feel aligned with love, abundance, and peace. Some will CHOOSE to stay in the energy of fear, lack, and separation, but that is their choice, their process to be accountable and responsible for.

The only person’s process I’m accountable and responsible for is my own. It’s my job to create the life that is best for me. My focus is on serving the highest good and my process reveals to me how I can do that step by step.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #314

I’m grateful for the journey of expanding the mind. I don’t just love being on this journey myself, I love that there are so many others on this journey too. I love the wisdom that is circulating and causing people to grow and expand together. A long time ago, I remember hearing about a very low percentage of people who continue to read and educate themselves after they finish school. That was the moment I committed to myself that I would continue to put energy into expanding my mind on a regular basis. I became very conscious of where I was investing my energy. Reading helps me to keep my mind open to expanding, but experiencing is what truly expands my mind to align with the energy of love, abundance, and peace over fear, lack, and separation.

I can have a whole lot of knowledge through reading and seeing, but the expansion comes when I apply the knowledge into my daily life. Here’s an example, someone can memorize verses and or pages from books they feel are full of Great wisdom, but if they don’t apply the words to the experiences that are presented to them, they aren’t fully expanding their minds. They are still living in their own internal prisons. The words might be the key to releasing them, but only if they choose to take action and turn the key.

Being that I love studying people, I’m loaded with different places to look to expand my mind. I found mind-blowing ways to expand my mind in 2020. If it weren’t for 2020, I’m not sure I would be writing this series. I keep seeing ways I can expand my mind beyond the years of study I’ve already vested. I LOVE that! 2020 has brought pivot to the forefront of experience. I know I have read a lot about people surviving traumatic times, but to actually remember and apply what I’ve read—that’s a different ball game. My creative brain has never been more intact than it has since I figured out where I didn’t want my mind to be when it came to everything going on in the world. I had to see myself taking a nose dive into the abyss of feeling victimized by circumstances to see that I had the tools to get myself out of that space, I just had to apply the wisdom.

The dangers in not expanding the mind is that I could keep believing thoughts and ideas that are PROVEN to be untrue. I could continue to believe ideas that keep me locked in my own private prison in my mind. I choose not to live there now. I used to and it was painful. I’ve learned to EXPERIENCE life with an open mind. An open mind is the only thing I need to go on this journey. With an open mind, I can see when I’m blocking myself or setting myself free. Aligning my energy with love, abundance, and peace over fear, lack, and separation helps me to expand my mind through my experiences with AMAZING results. I still struggle, but those struggles have purpose.

I also love that this journey is not a lonely one. With an open mind, I find plenty of people to help me expand my mind. I trust anyone who is presented to me on my path is meant to be there until they are not. I don’t fret about people showing up or not showing up, because whoever is there has a gift to offer. Sometimes what a person is offering is a gift for me to see myself more clearly, and that gift is NOT always wrapped in a pretty package. The key for me is to STAY OPEN to expand my mind. Each experience I have offers me great wisdom. Wisdom doesn’t always come pain free, so part of expanding means feeling my way through the experience without trying to block, numb, run, hide, or deny what is stirring inside of me.

Today, I commit to investing time into expanding my mind. Reading, watching, hearing, experiencing, and applying with an open mind are the tools I will use to expand my mind today. When I do this, I have to be conscious of the lens I’m absorbing through. Am I absorbing what is in front of me aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace or the energy of fear, lack, and separation? Whatever energy I’m absorbing information through will dictate how I experience and apply the wisdom I’m receiving. I can only ever experience life through the lens I’m CHOOSING to see it through.

If I’m stuck in the energy of fear, lack, and separation, how I absorb, experience, and expand will be a brutally painful journey. If I’m embracing the energy of love, abundance, and peace, how I absorb, experience, and expand will be a freeing and empowering journey. There might still be pain, but finding purpose in the pain expands the mind in the most beautiful ways. That is how I want to serve humanity. I want to take everything I’ve gained from experiencing the pain and turn it into light.

If you are new to my writings, please be clear in NO WAY do I ever suggest NOT feeling through our authentic feelings. I’m not suggesting fake it until we make it. I’m about working on what is at the core of HOW we experience our lives. Through many years of observation and applying things that have and have not worked for me as a trauma survivor, I’ve figured out what DOES work for me right now. By staying open, I find new and sometimes different ways that help me now that are different from what has helped me before. That is all a part of the journey. I don’t judge what once served me as right or wrong, it was what I needed to believe at the time. Sometimes I needed to figure out certain ways of believing, seeing, and absorbing life made me feel more pain than I needed to. Experiencing everything exactly as I did and do is what helps me expand, and that is what I share with you. I share my journey of creating my own internal garden. I plant seeds and sometimes have to weed seeds out, but each seed offers me ways to expand. I trust my journey. If you are here with me, trust your journey. Whatever resonates with you in this moment, you will take with you as a seed for your garden. You get to decide what you want to do with the seed. Enjoy the journey and keep expanding your mind!

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #298

I’m grateful for the symbolic meanings of unpaved roads. When I see an unpaved road, I think of the road less traveled. I consider my own unique path. I’ve never been one for doing what others have done before me. I love finding my own way. Sometimes it may take me longer to get to destinations, but I love the adventures I get to go on along the way. I’m love the all the beauty and wonder I find on those scenic paths.

Unpaved roads may be scary to some, but to me they seem like the more natural choice. I find my passion reaches deeper levels when I riding on unpaved roads and I mean this both literally and figuratively. I find that those unpaved roads help me to stay present, because the details matter. I don’t go into autopilot when I’m venturing out on these roads less traveled.

I’m so grateful for the reminders the unpaved roads provide me with:

  • Stay focused
  • Stay present-keep my mind where my feet are
  • keep taking steps
  • Enjoy the journey
  • Life is an adventure
  • Keep trusting my instincts
  • Let my intuition guide me
  • Choose the path that is right for me in this moment
  • Keep alert- be aware of potholes
  • Be prepared for an adventure
  • Discover
  • Live Brave
  • Chart my own path

Today, I commit to embracing the symbolic meanings of unpaved roads. What can I do today that contributes to me appreciating my own unique path? Where do I want to put my focus today? What adventure do I want to take on? These are the questions I think of when I considering embracing the symbolic meanings of the unpaved roads that lie ahead.

Loving the adventure that is my life is apart of my daily practice of embracing these unpaved roads. When I’m living in the energy of love, abundance, and peace, I’m more willing to learn, grow, and expand. I invest my time on appreciating the moments I’ve been given more. I feed my soul daily because I’m focused on each step I’m taking on my path. The beautiful thing I’ve found is my ability to follow my intuition grows stronger the more dedicated I become to traveling this path. I love the reminders when I think of symbolic meanings of these unpaved roads.

I’m grateful for the symbolic meaning of butterflies. Butterflies represent transformation for me. When I see a butterfly, I don’t just see their majestic beauty, strength, and grace. I see the journey that butterfly took to get the opportunity to fly.

I came up with the Becoming the Butterfly workshop out of the observations that even butterflies have to move through the muck to get their wings. There is a reason that the butterfly is on the cover of my book. I take readers into getting down and dirty as the caterpillar; sitting in the stillness of the chrysalis; and taking action as the butterfly.

The journey of the butterfly reminds me that I have everything I need to live my best life inside of me. I CAN change, I CAN grow, and I CAN extend my wings. The only thing that is ever holding me back is my own perspective, and that I CAN change.

I’ve also discovered that there are those that steal butterfly wings while claiming to be able to fly. These are just toxic caterpillars. What they have to offer is poison. All butterflies have to take the whole journey in order to get their wings, and so do we! If someone is never willing to sit in the stillness, they will live their lives in the hustle of the caterpillar. I can go on and on about my thoughts on butterflies. That’s probably why I decided to write a book about it.

Today, I commit to embracing the symbolic meaning of the butterfly. I’ve been sitting in the stillness of the chrysalis for some time now. I’m taking in so much by being in this part of my butterfly journey. Much of the work I’m doing is what happens within the chrysalis. The caterpillar becomes mush in the chrysalis. Then puts itself back together in a different and more brilliant way. This is where the struggle of the caterpillar begins to make sense. My journey of Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace has been about putting all the pieces together to make sense. I know there is much more to come, but I’m enjoying this journey EVERY step of the way. I honestly am amazed at how my life has changed since I started writing this series 287 days ago.

Did you read yesterday’s piece? Do you notice the puzzle pieces?

Embracing the symbolic meaning of the butterfly means I’m choosing the embrace the journey of transformation. That is me doing the daily work of whatever part of the journey that I’m in at the moment. Skipping ahead doesn’t work. I have to feel my way through the journey of the caterpillar. I can’t avoid, suppress, or numb that part of the journey. I have to live it to see the gifts it’s offering me. Trying to skip is like embracing toxic positivity. We have to embrace what is there before we are given the next piece. We don’t just get to skip over the journey of chrysalis. This is where all the parts come together in order to fly. Trying to skip a step in my experience ALWAYS brings me back to caterpillar 101 (the beginning).

So for now, I’m embracing being in my chrysalis and putting myself together in a more beautiful and brilliant way. Today, this means:

  • Cleansing my body from toxins that are weighing it down
  • Writing my blog
  • Reading
  • De-cluttering some of my physical spaces
  • Living in the energy of love, abundance, and peace as much as possible
  • Staying present and mindful as I move through the day

I’m grateful to be on this journey of life. Many years ago, someone told me that wisdom comes in our 40’s. I’m officially midway through my 40’s and I’m amazed in how much I’ve learned and am able to share with others. Being a multiple trauma survivor, I’ve been through all kinds of different forms of healing, recovery, painful awakenings, and so much personal and spiritual growth. I’m grateful for all the wisdom I’ve gained no matter how painful the journey through it has been. I’m here living the life I am because I never gave up on living it as a better me. I didn’t make myself better through anything I accumulated outside of myself, just like a caterpillar moving into the chrysalis, everything needed to live as a butterfly is within. Sometimes it takes becoming the mush in the chrysalis in order to re-build, but our power to create our best lives is always within us. It’s in where we CHOOSE to put our energy moment to moment.

That’s my perspective, and this is one of the reasons I love this incredible journey of life. I can choose to believe in perspectives that align me with the energy of love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation. If I find a perspective no longer serves me being the best version of myself, I can take a journey of discovery to find a perspective that fits me NOW. I continue to learn, grow, change, shift, and transform. That is my journey, and I love it.

Today, I commit to enjoying the journey. The journey is a one moment at a time adventure. When I get ahead of myself, I can quickly move into the feeling overwhelm which is submerged in the energy fear, lack, and separation. If I want to truly enjoy the journey, I have to stay in it, one step at a time. Enjoying the journey is what it means to live in the energy of love, abundance, and peace for as much time as I choose. Today, my focus is on staying here in this moment.

Life is a series of moments. It’s our job to figure out what we want to do with them. Whether we hold on, let them go, embrace them, release them, learn from them, be prisoner of them, and on and on. What we do with the moments is our choice. Today, I’m choosing to enjoy them.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

I’m grateful for the journey of the caterpillar to the butterfly. Every time I need a little boost, I think about the journey of the caterpillar to the butterfly. The caterpillar is in the hustle of the search for more. It has to get dirty. The journey is challenging. The direction isn’t always clear. Once the caterpillar is as full as it needs to get, the chrysalis is formed. Then it becomes mush, but something inside knows how to put all the pieces together to become the butterfly. I get so much inspiration for my journey of transformation from the butterfly, which is why I named one of my seminars Becoming the Butterfly. That is why I use the journey in my book too. The journey is one of total transformation. We can go on the same journey, we just do it internally.

When I’m struggling in the muck, I know that I’m collecting what I need to go into my chrysalis. Once I’m there, I have to completely let go, shift, and change the things that were keeping me in the struggle. Then, I begin to take a new shape with new habits, mindsets, and beliefs. When I’m fully ready to let go of the struggle, I transform in the stillness, and then open my wings. I’m free to fly. No matter how dark things get, when I think of this journey, I feel a peace inside of me. I know I’m just at the beginning of the journey. The beautiful thing about being a human is that I can take this journey over and over until I get my final set of wings.

It’s the journey of aligning with love, abundance, and peace. The weight of fear, lack, and separation keeps us in the struggles of being a caterpillar. We have to be willing to let go of that energy and transform it into love, abundance, and peace. That is when we get our wings.

Today, I commit to seeing myself in the journey from caterpillar to butterfly. Ever since I started seeing my journey in these terms, I will often ask myself, “What part of the journey am I on today—caterpillar, chrysalis, or butterfly?” If I’m in the struggle, I try to write out what I’m in search of that I’m struggling with. If I’m taking in all the lessons and percolating, I will do more meditations, free-writing, and mindfulness practices. If I’m flying, I truly take the time to appreciate it all and truly enjoy soaring.

Today, I’m in the chrysalis. I just went through a lot of challenges and I’m in the place of mindfulness and I’m being guided into transforming some old beliefs that have been getting in my way. I keep getting piece by piece to help me construct my wings, right now in this moment, it’s about staying present and paying attention to the signs.

What part of the journey are you on today? Play with this one. Have fun! It’s all part of the journey. Each part has a huge role to play. Don’t dismiss where you are because you want to be somewhere else. The butterfly can’t fly without going through the entire journey. A caterpillar pretending to have wings is just a person lost in fear, lack, and separation. They are still a caterpillar. Being a butterfly is those points in time where we are fully aligned with love, abundance, and peace. We are living in the AWE. We can’t be there all the time, but that is what make the entire journey so incredible. Embrace whatever part of the journey you are on in this moment. In the next moment, it might change. Each part of the journey has beautiful lessons to teach us. They may not all be pretty, but the wisdom is what makes us shine.

If you like what you are reading, I hope you will scroll down and follow this blog. Have a transformative day!

I’m grateful that today I can be better. It really is as simple as that. Each morning I get to wake up and decide to be better than I was yesterday. Aligning with love, abundance, and peace is a journey. Some days, I will be challenged and other times it will be easy, but the most awesome part is getting better daily. The lows don’t get as low, they don’t last as long, and the connections go so much deeper. This journey is beautiful. I love enjoying the walk, step by step.

Each day, I’m offered such blessings all leading me in the direction of being the best version of me moment to moment. I’m not here to be perfect, I’m here to embrace this life with all I have.

90-Day A Better Me Series: Day 31 – Understanding the Journey of Perspective

90-Day A Better Me Series

Part II: A Journey of Perspective

What Launches Us Forward: The Stable Foundation

Day 31: Understanding the Journey of Perspective

“Perspective is the way we see thing when we look at them from a certain distance and it allows us to appreciate their true value.”

-Rafael E. Pino

If fear, blame, shame, judgment, hate, low self-worth, and lack of presence make an unstable foundation like I talked about in Part I of the 90-Day A Better Me Series, then you might already be able to see how gaining perspective is the path to creating a stable foundation. When we can step back and get a better view of how we contribute to the toxic muck eating away our foundation (awareness), we open ourselves up to the journey of perspective. This journey has the ability to clean up our foundation and make the land that we create our reality on a place we actually want to be. Being on this path means when we are ready to take action, we see what we are doing with more clarity and understanding to how it contributes to the whole.

My friend Sarah once said, “The instructions to get out of the box are on the outside of the box.” When we are going through challenges in life we can feel trapped inside the box. How we get out is perspective. We have to learn to see ourselves, situations, beliefs, and feelings with a little distance. We have to go outside of the box.

The journey of perspective is a doorway we can choose to take. It is a path that opens us up to accept ourselves and others, be open to/for change, see beliefs differently, live in gratitude, take loving action, love unconditionally, and be more present. We took the first step to reach the doorway in Part I: A Journey of Awareness. We can’t get outside of the box until we see the box we’ve created for ourselves.

The most wonderful revelation that comes from taking this journey is realizing the only box that exists is the one we create for ourselves. When we reach this level and actively take on the behavior patterns that come with this understanding. We are actually re-wiring our brains to function better. How AWESOME is that! Instead of our brain working against us, it begins working for us. When you feel the internal shifts beginning to happen, it’s an amazing ride. If you stick with me on this journey and do the work, the transformations that take place will feel like miracles. Doing the work opens you up to see so many signs that you’ve been begging the Universe or your Higher Power (God, Allah, Buddha, Jesus, nature, etc.)  to show you.

Seeing signs clearly was a huge deal to me. What I realized was when I didn’t see a sign to do something different, it meant I was exactly where I was supposed to be right now. There are lessons I need from where I am, and when I am supposed to do or be somewhere different— I will be. I’m not saying fears don’t creep in and try to rain on my parade; they do. I let them have power over me sometimes and I suffer for it. The difference is knowing the feeling is temporary and that I have the tools to get myself out of it. I might need the fear in that moment to teach me something and take me a little deeper into what is blocking me. The fear might attract teachers for me to learn from. I choose to look at it in ways that benefit my growth and stability, not break it down. That is how perspective has benefited my life. It still doesn’t always look pretty to the outside world, but the shifts on the inside are my miracles. Knowing I am accountable for my feelings, thoughts, actions, and reactions has given me authentic empowerment that can never be taken away.
