Know YOUR Value...
Do you value yourself? Do you take care of your needs, and build yourself up, before trying to take care of ANYONE else's needs - your children? Your spouse? The school? Your job? Church?
Remember the "put your own mask on, first" analogy?
Those external "needs" will always be there, no matter how much you do to fill them; and if you're not building/filling yourself up, you eventually start to "pour from an empty cup". Everything you try to do for everyone else ends up feeling like "dry heaves". PAINFUL. Miserable. Then resentment starts to creep in.
If you take a self-inventory, you may be able to find and set aside, five minutes a day for a little self-care.
Journal. Read a book you enjoy. Daily affirmations in the mirror, while you brush your teeth. Whatever you need to do, to show YOURSELF how important YOU are, and how much YOU really matter.
I think you'll see a difference in your overall view of your life ‐ and maybe make it a little less stressful? See some changes that may need to happen? It WILL trickle down into every aspect of your life.
Would love to hear your thoughts on this. Thank you, in advance!!!
Have a good day, and be safe... #2020seeclearly beamererin.com firstname.lastname@example.org
