A few weeks ago I decided to make some radial changes in my life and take my power back in some areas that I have given it away. I have had this habit of taking care of people to the detriment of my own health, personallity and even my business. Part of my SHIFT involved me moving out of my home, not only to downsize but to aid in movement of my roommate that continues to show-up at my doorstep in need of a place to live. The roommate happens to be a dear friend and my childrens father. It’s not an easy thing to let go of that relationship, as it was currently shaped. Love how it is shaping now!
Today for breakfast, I went into the kitchen for coffee and my normal behavior is to eat what’s EASY. I do not usually cook and especially not for myself. Then when I decided to cook something for myself, massive emotions and memories came up around how many times I would starve myself and not care for myself nutritiously, unless there were other people to cook or care for. It is sad to think that I am the last one on my list….until now! Learning to love and honor myself is so powerful.
As this journey is progressing many of my relationships are changing. I am seeing where I do not set boundries or honor my truth in many situations. People pleasing, can anyone relate? I even allow people to give hurtful input about how I should or shouldn’t live my life. My favorite “speak my truth moment” was so beautiful, when at the start, this individual said “I know this will be for the highest good of both of us”. WOW! We can really create these type of relationships in our life that honor us, honoring ourselves!
Where can you honor yourself more? What boundries do you have?
Are there times when you do things out of obligation or people pleasing?
What can you let go of, that is no longer serving your highest good?
Thank you again for your continued feedback and support on this amazing journey called LIFE
