As I've grown older, I've become more attuned to what I really need and what I need to leave behind. When I think back to even 5 years ago, my life looks a lot different now.
I live by intention doing the things that I love to do. I'm doing more things for me, to fill up my heart and take care of myself first and protecting my energy so that I can show up, be present, and be the best version of myself for others.
I am no longer doing things because I feel I have to or I should. Because I love helping people, I used to have a hard time at saying no and I would try to do everything even if I didn't have the time to do it and I ended up being more exhausted and tired. Talk about energy draining...and stress!
Showing up for yourself might look like…
Getting clear on your goals.
Setting healthy boundaries.
Listening to what your body needs (rest, food, water).
Nourishing your body with movement.
Acknowledging and honoring your feelings.
Disconnecting from others and social media.
Practicing positive self-talk.
Self-care ME time.
Showing up for yourself will help you renew your energy and regain motivation so that you can...
Live on PURPOSE.
If you're not feeling motivated, ask yourself, when was the last time you did something just for YOU?
If you're feeling drained and exhausted, you need to take time out for yourself, to replenish your energy to be able to come back to wholeness again. Trust me, I've been there!
Taking time out for yourself is not selfish.
The greatest gift you can give to the world is to be the best version of yourself.
Become your own BFF.
Because you're worth it!
I’d love to hear from you!
