I just wrapped up my free 7 Day Mindset Challenge & am feeling so inspired by the amazing women in my community. They are so real, and so raw and SO powerful! ?? I appreciate the love & support within that sacred space, but most of all I love the feedback.
I’ve had SO many women reach out & share that their biggest challenge in living the lifestyle they love is the dreaded t-word: Time. Or lack thereof.
So let’s do something about that. I invite you right now to dream about your ideal day. And I mean be specific. How are you spending your time? Who’s there with you? Do you have a healthy balance of work & play?
The actions we take each day directly impacts how close we are to making those dreams a reality. Yet so many women are stuck feeling overwhelmed, like there’s just not enough time to get it all done. They crave to spend time following their passions, but everyone else’s needs seem to come first.
I know the kids gotta eat.
I know you’re working really hard.
I know you’re trying to meet all these heavy expectations.
But what if I told you that you’re doing it wrong?
We often let ourselves come up with excuses like “there’s not enough time,” when truthfully…it’s just fear. Fear about what people will think if we push back & set boundaries.
Fear about being assertive with how we spend our time, money & energy.
Fear about placing OUR NEEDS back at the top of the list rather than the bottom where they’ve been for so long.
When you choose to make your needs a priority, “time” is not a valid excuse. How do I know? Because if you really want something, you WILL take action to make it happen.
You do it every day, like when CHOOSE to make your employer happy by showing up & doing the best damn job you can do. Or when you CHOOSE to put your family’s needs above your own. Or when you CHOOSE to focus on the hundred little tasks you end up doing in a day. Your action toward making these thing happen indicates that these things are big priorities.
But until you choose to put yourself, your joys, your desires at the forefront of your mind & at the top of your To Do list you’re essentially saying “I’m not a priority in my life.” You CHOOSE to place your needs last every. single. time.
When are you going to choose yourself? When are you going to stop making these excuses and face the real block? It’s not that you don’t have enough time. It’s that you’re out of touch with yourself, your needs & your true desires. It’s that you have fear that meeting your needs first makes you wrong or selfish.
Take your power back, sis. Stop waiting. Stop putting everyone (& everything) else above your own needs.
Seriously, just imagine how that would feel. How will that impact those around you? How will it change your life for the better?
Taking care of yourself doesn’t require you to neglect your other responsibilities. It actually enhances your ability to show up for those priorities & obligations with 100 times more energy, purpose & passion.
Make the choice today to acknowledge that you, as much as anybody else, deserve to feel happy, supported & free.
And a good start is by putting a little more you back into your routine.
