Do you put yourself first?
DO YOU GIVE FROM OBLIGATION OR FROM OVERFLOW?
Going around putting everyone else’s needs and desires ahead of yours is abandoning yourself when you put yourself first it empowers you to give as a side effect. Instead, you need to make sure that you deposit into your own “bank” so that when you withdraw from it, you are not going “negative.” Being able to put yourself first empowers you to give your best to yourself AND others without feeling obligated, depleted, and resentful.
In order to make these deposits, you need to know what fills you up, you need to know how you truly feel, and the only way to do that is to get to know yourself on a deep level.
Do you know who you are?
If I asked you to tell me about yourself would there be a list followed by titles and labels that you have accumulated? A lot of times what I see in myself as well as others are that we are defined by these titles and labels. We are those things but this is not the truth of who we are. We can lose ourselves in them, for instance, how many times have you heard a mother say “I don’t even know who I am anymore.” “I just wish I could feel like myself again.” It’s a juggling process and it can feel like only the pins are now the juggler themselves.
Do you know what your core values are?
If you have never really asked yourself this question it can be pretty tricky to answer. So give yourself some time to really dive deep to find the values that really drive you. These values fill you up, they are the very embodiment of what makes you fulfilled and makes your feel great about your decisions, no matter how small they are.
I created a “How to find your core values” for you here. –> http://eepurl.com/cx68d9
Why is “self” so important?
When you know who you truly are, you know your needs, wants, and dreams. When you know your values and own your decisions you empower yourself. You create your reality by choosing what is in alignment and if you misstep you are in control of going back towards alignment.
I’d love to see your values if you’d like to share them with me please send me a message! If you are having trouble I invite you to schedule a call with me where we will dive deeper into the process.
