You heard the flight attendant say it best put on your mask first! One of the best lessons I have learned is that everyone around me is better off when I put myself first. I am a very empathic person so I have had the unhealthy practice of putting others and their needs and expectations above my own. Well when I realized that I needed to be my children's mother's best friend and loudest cheerleader there was a shift in my life. Many people observe what we do and how we do it. When you put yourself first and come from a place that sets boundaries and honors the significance of self you can't go wrong. This is a great step to walking to being a whole authentic being. And if they don't like SO WHAT... YOU PUT YOURSELF FIRST AND YOU SHOULD LOVE THAT!!!
There is a blessing in DISCONNECTION from the familiar! As the trees, grass and flowers begin to bloom in this season of Spring, reflect on how the dead layers had to fall back/down before it could spring forward again. Sometimes we may hold on to a dead thing too long and stunt our own growth. Shed dead weight and be open to the "Newness" of life ready to pour in! #issametamorphosis #iraiseself #changeofseasons #seasonschange #selfcare #DisconnectToConnect #releasetoxicity
All Things R 4 Your Good...Sometimes we judge and categorize things as good or bad, right or wrong, pretty or ugly, stale or trendy...When in reality all things are really working for your good. Have you ever stressed out about the morning routine being turned upside down and running late only to drive and see an accident that is on your route and the timing appears to be on your usual schedule. Giving ourselves grace in our experiences is self-care currency. #issametamorphosis #iraiseself #allthingsareformygood #selfcarecurrency #giveyourselfgrace #ebbandflow
... is just that MY TRUTH! It is what resonates with me. It’s what speaks to my soul. It is the very thing that raises the hairs on my arms. MY TRUTH is for me to understand and interpret. And I must speak it. I have lived too long being the “good girl” and going the traditional route but I am stepping out one line at a time. So if you don’t want to hear MY TRUTH don’t ask me or read any further. It is my goal to take myself on a journey through truth ... MY TRUTH!
My life like yours has been filled with an abundance of opportunities to reflect on the past, reconnect with the present and raise myself to become an even better version of me. I want to share my thoughts, learnings and behaviors as "I Raise Self".
