You're Not Selfish For Doing This

Dec 23, 2019

I just wanted to check in with you ahead of the next couple of days and ask ... What are you doing to ensure that your needs are being met right now? 

I want you to know that it's not selfish to put yourself first sometimes. It's OK to have some time to yourself, give yourself a break, rest, honor how you're feeling, assess your needs or get away for a little while. 

How are you making time to do that? For many, it may feel impossible. You feel like you're just holding everything together. Maybe you've told yourself, "I just need to 'make it' through these next few days ... this next week ... through the rest of the year." 

How many times have you told yourself that you just 'have to make it'? How would you like to change that dynamic and tell yourself, "Here's what needs to be done, and I'm going to feel good about it!" 

The other day in my Boundaries.Me group, I started a conversation asking individuals to share how they're feeling ahead of Christmas and invited them to offer an encouraging word to one another. I'm grateful to have this group to coordinate with the lessons and conversations in the Boundaries.Me library because I get to see the steps my community is taking to grow and thrive past the pain they've been through.

There is still time left to win prizes and take advantage of these discounted prices for Boundaries.Me, and I would love to have you join me for future conversations.

Merry Christmas!
