Listen. Because listening’s important:
Hi and welcome to the Re-Enchant Your Life reminder.
Your sacred pause in the day where you’re encouraged to take a moment to stop and tune into your inner wisdom and become present, so that you can reconnect to your personal power and confidently embrace who you’re becoming, as you Re-Enchant Your life and create the change you truly desire.
Today you’re being reminded that it’s not only okay to put yourself first, but in many cases it’s essential.
Let go of expectations and what you think you should or shouldn’t be doing, and listen to what you really want, need and desire.
Speak up for yourself.
Take action on your own behalf.
Be kind, loving, gentle and generous towards yourself.
Treat yourself as if you were the most special and valued person that you know, because in reality that’s exactly who you are.
When you focus on nourishing and nurturing yourself first, it’s true that you’ll have more resources for others, but put yourself first for yourself.
Put yourself first for your own peace of mind and well-being, and then it’s a bonus when you can show up more fully for everyone else too.
First and foremost, put yourself first for you.
In this very moment, just pause and take a breath, as you allow yourself enjoy the idea of putting yourself first.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Today’s SHEro action is to put yourself first.
Ask for what you want and need.
Put a stop to those things that aren’t aligned with you.
Remove the word ‘should’ from your vocabulary and do exactly what you want so that you feel loved and nourished by yourself.
Take yourself out for your most perfect date, treat yourself with deep love, care and respect.
Enjoy loving yourself and saying yes to yourself.
Pause, and take a breath. As you allow yourself to be filled with your own love.
“I love myself and honour my needs”
I’ll see you tomorrow for your daily reminder to Re-Enchant Your Life with me, Rebecca-Anuwen,
In the meantime, enjoy nourishing yourself!
It’s easy to get caught up in the lives of your friends and family, especially if you have children or elderly parents, so much so that you can lose sight of your own needs and desires in life.
When my son was born he swept in and took over my world, as he rightly had to do, if you’ve ever been around babies they’re, as I loving say, useless, they can’t do anything by themselves, they can’t even turn over.
As he got older, I had to consciously remind myself that he didn’t need me as much, and that I needed time for me and that was okay.
Taking time for yourself isn’t neglecting other people, it just means that you’re recognising yourself as important too.
It reminds you that you don’t have to constantly sacrifice yourself or prioritise they needs of others over your own needs.
One question that I found helpful to ask myself, each time I resisted prioritising myself was:
Why am I making this choice?
Why am I prioritising someone else’s needs and desires over my own?
Is it because it was the right thing to do at that time, or was it because I was trying to gain their acceptance/love/friendship… insert any of the other reasons we may have.
I had to learn to step back, prioritise what was important to me, and sometimes that meant re-evaluating how I had been making my choices.
