Do You Know What Your Body Really Wants?

No, I’m not referring to how much food or what foods you eat? What does your body really need? Now that you’ve made a commitment and put yourself on your own calendar so you can fill yourself up to overflowing on a daily basis, let’s start with your body. Do you ask your body each day, what it needs? I don’t know about you, but this was not something I did unless I had a cold or the flu. Sure, then I’d listen, but the rest of the time, not so much. Yet, loving ourselves and self … [Read more...]

Are You On Your Calendar?

Now that you’ve hopefully given yourself permission to do more self care and fill yourself up, you’re ready for the next step. Actually doing it. We can have all the best intentions to do something, however, if we don’t take our commitment to ourselves seriously, the Universe won’t either. That means that all sorts of things can come up, like an unexpected dental appointment, birthday party with gift needed asap, a last minute meeting called, whatever, and your best intentions go by the … [Read more...]

How to Give Yourself Permission for Self Love

In the last post we talked about filling ourselves up to overflowing and giving to others from our overflow.

I ran into one of my neighbors, Kathleen, a few days ago in the middle of the afternoon. Since she’s usually at work then, I asked how she was doing? She mentioned that she’d been sick earlier that week … [Read more...]

Are You Always Giving to Others First?

As part of an online retreat I did last month, a speaker asked the participants to list all the things we do on a plate. Before I knew it my plate was full. A few minutes later she told us to look at what we’d written. I noticed I’d listed all the things I do for my business, my clients, my students and groups, family, friends, home, even my cat, Larry Shiva, but I didn’t list what I do for myself. Wow, was that telling and embarrassing too! You see, I’m always recommending the … [Read more...]
