Confidence Booster Series: First Love Yourself (FLY)
One of the most powerful things we can do for ourselves is to love ourselves first. When we have a healthy sense of who we are, we are less likely to fall apart or be hard on ourselves when the road gets bumpy…and let’s face it, life can be unpredictable! By regularly taking the time to recharge and take stock of what’s most important, we are giving ourselves the ultimate gift of building ourselves up to become better able to cope with whatever comes our way.
This of course looks different for everyone. Some people like to rise early and enjoy some quiet time journaling, meditating, exercising or reading before the day goes into full swing. For others, it may be setting clear boundaries with people who tend to overstep, or steering clear of the ‘negative-nellies‘ who very quickly sap energy. It could be consciously feeding yourself nourishing food and staying hydrated, or perhaps a combination of all the things listed above.
When we pause to ask ourselves what we need, the answer is generally right there just begging to be heard. This can be difficult to put into practice at first, as it is so common to put others first, or to become so busy and wrapped up in life that we no longer hear ourselves.
Finding the time each day to consciously do something that will help us to F.L.Y. is such a gift of confidence and self-love. I find that the more I listen to my inner voice and honour what I need, the easier it becomes to put myself first.
When we feel recharged and good about ourselves, we are also more likely to be happier and kinder to others around us. It is ultimately a gift to ourselves and our loved ones- a win/win for everyone! Do what works best for you and have fun with it.
