I was listening to a podcast last week and the person being interviewed was sharing their story of overcoming a challenge.
She said “if I had listened to me, it wouldn’t have happened.”
Which situations can you say that about in your life? 🧐
Where you ignored your gut feeling and intuition, only to be kicked in the butt by it later?
I know I can reflect on many such times.
If I had listened to me, I wouldn’t have stayed in any of my past relationships so long. ❤️🩹
Maybe I would never have gotten involved in them in the first place. 🤔
If I had listened to me, I would have stood up for myself more when someone said or did something that hurt.
If I had listened to me, I’d have moved to Australia sooner. 🏝️
If I had listened to me, I would have rested more and not given away so much of my energy to people that didn’t deserve it.
If I had listened to me, I’d have given myself permission to have difficult conversations sooner, knowing I could handle them.
I imagine most people reading this could say most of the above for themselves too.
Where are you not listening to yourself at the moment? 🎧
I’ve been listening to myself a lot more lately; it’s not always an easy ride, but when you compare it to the alternatives it’s definitely better in the long term.
We become so busy that we’re disconnected from our best self; that self is the one we need to listen to.
Set aside time each day, and even moments all through the day, where you stop, breathe, and ask yourself;
🧐 What am I feeling right now?
❤️🩹 What do I need?
🗣️ Who can I ask for help?
Pay more attention. Listen more.
Your best self knows what’s best for you.
My current round of students in my From Surviving To Thriving program are learning to listen to themselves more and having amazing results because of it.
