What if you really stopped and took the time to cater to yourself? What if for just one week, one day, one hour or 30 minutes you had no one to answer to, be there for or do things for but you? How could you or those around you benefit from you taking this necessary time out for you? Would you be more effective in your actions? Would you be more pleasant to be around? Would you find the courage to walk boldly in your dreams?
We all have the difficult task of wearing that "S" on our chest for many people in our lives but if we are not careful to stop and do the things we need to do to remain healthy physically, spiritually and mentally, that "S" can easily stand for Stress, Sadness and Sorrow! Taking care of you is not an option, it is a mandatory tool needed on this journey of being amazing on purpose!
Every new day we are blessed to see comes with the ability to choose what we do with it. In your daily work to Make It Happen be mindful of the choices you make as they relate to representing the best version of you, Worry less about what others would choose for you and concern yourself only with your personal mission to Make It Happen and to be amazing on purpose! #empoWered4Success #MakeItHappenMonday
In my women's empoWerment group, A Rose For A Rose, we have a theme called MAKE IT HAPPEN Monday. We follow the same weekly themes in this group because as much as we know the work we continually have to do to become the best versions of ourselves, the consistent reminders help us stay focused, remain accountable and move into action to get the work done.
Sometimes we find ourselves feeling stuck in our worlds because we feel like we just aren't making any progress. It could be with things such as our jobs, completing a project in our homes, improving our financial situations, following through on our goals and dreams, improving our relationships with our significant others, our children, parents, other family members, friends, etc.
Today is a great day for us to refocus, make a new plan and another opportunity to get closer to being our best selves. If it is still on our to-do list, let’s MAKE IT HAPPEN today!!! Have an amazing day on purpose!!!!! #empoWered4Success
Taking care of you begins with the positive messages you give to yourself. Just as you would not appreciate another person talking down or negatively towards you, you should expect the same of yourself. How we treat ourselves from the inside out sets the tone for the kind of life we ultimately live. If we consistently and consciously tell ourselves that we are not good enough, that we don't deserve more or that we can't accomplish a goal, then our obedient subconscious will do its best to make those things so. A better approach to self-care is to consistently give ourselves messages that align with how we see the best versions of ourselves to be. Take some time TODAY tell yourself that you are good enough, that you deserve to be your best, that you can accomplish any goal you work hard on and that you are amazing on purpose!!!
My goal is to take the time to focus on another "ROSE" in need and seek ways to bless, support and encourage her through her current challenges.
