I’ve got a lot going on right now. It’s almost dizzying. It seems many of us have gotten off the pandemic-induced “limbo train” and are starting to move forward.
Yesterday I found myself being critical of all that I had not accomplished. When I paused and began journaling and prioritizing, I realized I was not being supportive of Renee; I would never speak to a friend the way I was speaking to myself. Enough! This week I’m sitting with the question, “How can I be my own ally?” and examining how I can bring in more compassion and understanding to my current life stage. Care to join me?
Want more? Read How Often Do You Abandon Yourself? I’d love to hear how the week goes for you and what helps you “have your own back.” If you happen to live in Western North Carolina, consider joining me for my new women’s group starting this spring (details below). We’ll focus on how to become our own allies and cultivate an unwavering allegiance to ourselves!
