As a woman and as a mom, I know I always would help others before I helped myself. I would not take time to rest or heal or feed my soul.... I did feed my belly. That is how I got through a lot of stress. That does not work.. it feels good in the moment,but then it backfires.I would feel bad about myself for overeating and for not dealing with issues.
I finally took time for me and I was able to find myself and who I am and who I wanted to be, other than a deaf/ed teacher, wife, mother and friend. I want to inspire and motivate people. I want to help others see that they are ENOUGH, just as they are. They can always improve and make themselves a better version of themselves. Just because we want to improve on the current model of ourselves does not mean that we are not enough, we are not good , or we are not worthy. It means that there is SO much life to live and we deserve ALL the goodness.
Take time today-write down three areas of your life that you want to improve.. it can be spiritually, physically, emotionally, financially,etc.. Whatever speaks to you. Don't over think it..just write.
