Even though sometimes you’re not as kind as you should be to yourself, you need to be at a place where you know that you cannot give what you don’t have. And because you can’t give what you don’t have, you have to tap into you, to know who you are and what you have and start giving from that place of abundance, that very authentic place that lies in your body, spirit and soul.
The Bible says ‘love your neighbour as you love yourself’; you need to love yourself first before you are able to love others. How deeply are you loving yourself because that determines how deeply you’re going to love other people? You can’t give what you don’t have, it’s not practical.
Self-care is important – take time to tell yourself how much you love yourself, how much you adore yourself, how much you inspire yourself, how much you’re a badass at what you do, how much you are the best person for the job, the best partner for that man, the best mum to those kids, the best sister that ever existed – as you say those things you manifest them and start walking in that truth.
Don’t forget to have conversations with that girl you wake to every single day. I’ve found so much confidence and power as I master the art of spending time with myself. I ask myself how I’m doing, what I need, how I can be better, not just for myself but for other people. As you have those conversations with yourself, you unconsciously tap into a place where you start healing and confronting a few things about yourself. This will make you a better friend, sister, partner, bossbabe for yourself and the people that you lead.
Never underestimate the power of prayer. Spend time in prayer to God. Ask him what He wants you to do, His plan for you…If you don’t know the plan He has for you, you get disappointed, distraught and distracted. Conversations with your Maker will empower you and provide you with direction for your life.
