Uncomfortable doing things for yourself? Read this now...

Where I am today.
.
Physically: the lake.
.
Mentally: panned up in a new way. Seeing it all clearly.
.
Energetically: filled TF up.
.
What you need to hear today: You get to PRIORITIZE yourself every day. Not JUST when it’s convenient for those around you.
.
There’s a layer between you and the highest version of yourself available to you.
.
It’s the guilt that surfaces when you prioritize getting what you need, even when those around you run on empty because they think that’s what it means to “show up” for others.
.
What if I told you that’s not valiant or heroic… and it’s time to drop the need to be selfless for others at your own expense.
.
The highest version of yourself gives abundantly, beautifully, and from a place where your needs have already been met. You get to give the overflow.
.
I’ve become good at prioritizing my non-negotiables when it doesn’t inconvenience others. Moving my body, writing, connection with my fam, sleep (I pass out with my boys around 7/8… #thuglife), eating food that tastes good and feels good in my body…
.
But something I noticed recently is I see a bit of guilt I could entertain if my doing any of that inconveniences others.
.
If my walk means my dad has to come down because the woman who hangs out with my littles a couple mornings a week is on vacation.
.
If my writing means I have to leave the house to create connection to my message.
.
If my phone needs to be thrown in a drawer to connect with my family even if there are unanswered messages from clients or potential clients.
.
Today, I’ve been showing up for my non-negotiables even though it could be seen as an inconvenience.
.
And do you know what’s happening?
.
My kids and I are solid. No yelling. Lots of laughs. Lots of cuddles.
.
My man and I are solid. Love all the way.
.
My parents and I are solid. They’re showing up and I’m letting them.
.
My clients and I are solid. I pour into them and it fills me up in the process.
.
My SELF and I are solid. There’s overflow. There’s love. And I feel expansive and grounded at the same time.
.
I give you permission to do the same. I love you.
