SHOW UP FOR YOURSELF DAILY
Even if (especially if!) you think you don't have time for self-care.
Let's talk about the most important relationship in your life:
THE RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH YOURSELF
Here's why the relationship with yourself might be currently struggling:
You show up consistently for your external relationships - your partner, friends, family, pets, kids, plants. You’re intentional because you want these relationships to thrive. If your inner self had a voice they’d say “hey, what about me! I’m the one that spends the most time with you…”
You’ll take a look at all this self-love mumbo jumbo one day "once life settles down a bit”, right? After work isn't so crazy? After you finish school? After the kids go to school? After the holidays? Once you move? Once you start making money? Once you get back to the gym? I could keep going...
The relationship you have with yourself sets the tone for every single person, place, and thing in your life. You are the common denominator. You are the epicenter. Because you are the you who is living your life! If you cut a plant from its roots, would you expect flowers to blossom?
You think this kind of stuff is for OTHER TYPES of people
If you are a human being reading this, you have a relationship with yourself. Everyone does. How you care for it will look unique to you, but the relationship itself exists and is a thing for everyone. Regardless of age, physical appearance, tax bracket, and any other thing this world tries to divide us by.
IT'S TIME TO STOP PUTTING YOURSELF ON THE BACKBURNER.
