Practicing Self . . .
How do you practice self? To tune into and tap into your sense of self!
- Take charge and be in control of you.
- Set boundaries for yourself.
- Make good choices and decisions for yourself.
- Take responsibility for your choices and actions.
- Take responsibility for your decisions and the consequences.
When you make good choices and decisions you improve, change and grow! You practice and learn and then do it all over again. If you do not like the end result then choose differently!
The best boundary you can set for yourself is knowing how to state no! In setting boundaries for yourself, you are valuing yourself. Others know what is acceptable to you and how to treat you. You matter and boost your self worth!
You physical strong helps your emotional strength! You and your whole being are stronger than you think and give yourself credit for. We all are “discovering our strong”! Practicing and learning your strengths helps you build a solid foundation to experience personal growth from. Once you realize your inner strength(s) there is nothing that you cannot do!
You self strengths include relaxation and rest as well as using your energies effectively and efficiently! How do you slow down? How do you connect to your whole being? What is your outlet; mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually!
Your inner voice, the trust you have in yourself and following your gut instinct! That inner knowing and how to trust it and to voice your truth. Practice trusting what you know and believing in yourself!
“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.” ~Goethe
You define your worth and you can learn to love yourself and your whole being! Your beliefs and values. Your voice to express yourself. You can and do for YOU!
It is important to teach yourself how to trust your own intuition!
I recently read an article about the inner bond that you have with yourself! I have not thought about it like that before and it got me thinking. Where was that when I lost myself a bit a few years back. Practicing that connection that you have with yourself and your personal source of truth!
Being able to find and follow that path back again and again in trusting yourself, especially when you have lost that trust in yourself! It helps you cope and be more resilient. It really changes everything around when it seems a little upside down! The trust as well as the belief in yourself and how you value and stay true to who you are. Mind Blown!
You are in control! You make better decisions and choices. You see right and wrong with clarity. You listen to yourself more than others in making those decisions and choices that serve you best!
You tap into your gut instincts and intuitions! You tune into your inner voice. You have the ability to come from a place of love and tone down the fear better. Your inner guidance and radar system starts kicking in to better warn you!
That is Self Growth On the Highest Level!
What do you like or even love about yourself? Your qualities and assets. Your talents and gifts.
Practice self love and self care. Practice self compassion and self gratitude.
Being honest and true to who you are! Especially in believing and in trusting yourself. Being self aware and self confident. Who you are and who you want to be?
Practicing and learning self compassion is about loving you and your whole being!
Love and compassion. Care and support. Kindness and positiveness. Forgiveness and acceptance.
Self compassion helps you cope and build resilience! You have your own back. You are your own best friend and cheerleader. You are your biggest supporter in going after what it is you need to live the life you love!
