Take Yourself of the clearance rack and value YOURSELF more ! Cause it is YOU that tells people what YOU are worth! Sooooooooooooo <3 Put YOURSELF behind the glass case where the valuables are starting right NOW <3
I’d remind myself of some of the lessons I have learned on this journey:
1) Honor yourself first and above all. You are no good to anyone if you are no good to yourself.
2) YOU are the reason why you are not happy with your life… period. Your life is based on a series of you own choices, no one else’s. You are not a victim, you are an empowered creator.
3) The definition of insanity is doing the same thing, over and over and expecting a different outcome. If you want your life to be different, make different choices.
4) If you want to attract “better things” into your life, work on becoming a better person. You attract what you are.
5) There is a delicate balance to the Universe. It always provides everything you need. Note that “need” and “want” are two very different things.
6) Be kind, but don’t be a pushover. If it doesn’t feel true for you, chances are, it’s not. Then refer to lesson #1.
7) Your body is your vessel and a gift; it doesn’t deserve your abuse. There is a fine line between indulging a desire, and depending on it.
8) Forgive, forgive, forgive, but don’t forget. Start with yourself first.
9) Choose friends who share your enthusiasm for life and appreciate your strengths and weaknesses.
Which brings me to one of my most important lessons….
10) Our strength lies in our vulnerability and our willingness to keep our hearts open in spite of all the painful blows that life throws at us. By allowing your heart to remain open you will not only learn faster and heal faster, but all those delicate and beautiful parts of yourself will begin to flourish.
Sensitivity is not a weakness. It could perhaps be your greatest unrealized strength. In my case, allowing myself to be vulnerable and honoring my sensitivity allowed me to start coming out of hibernation.
“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip, or you talk with Richard, and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death.”
~ Anais Nin
Live life fully, in all its joy, in all its pain and in all its glory. Honor your hair, skin, body and home
