I have a confession, I remember a time when I was all things to all people. I was very good at giving and struggled at receiving, can you relate?
I would typically put other people’s needs way ahead of my own and over the years, I started to forget who I was, what was important to me. It was hard to say “no” to others even when I was overwhelmed and often fell into bed at night exhausted and resentful.
I was more ‘scullery maid’ than ‘Queen’ of my castle. Does this sound familiar? Being a Mum, a partner, a woman in business, a daughter, a friend, doesn’t mean being a ‘door mat’ or being last on the list. Awaken.
This week practice
✨ Being mindful of where you’re giving away your power and energy.
✨ Open yourself up to receiving.
✨Set clear boundaries which honour you, make it your responsibility to keep them firm.
✨ Practice saying “no” when something isn’t in your best interests.
✨ Have your needs met, by sharing what’s important to you.
✨ Delegate to others, you don’t have to do it all!
✨ Make time for YOU this week. There’s no badge of honour for burning yourself out or being a martyr!
This is your life gorgeous, be the Queen of your castle and enjoy it!
