Truer freakin’ words…
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told I’m too sensitive, and I used to see that as a bad thing, but not anymore!
The world NEEDS more sensitive, empathetic people. It’s HARSH out there, and it’s so easy to feel alone, but we are never alone!
Less looking down on people who are sensitive, more looking up to people who can see outside their own problems and show compassion for others 💕
There are way too many people overly concerning themselves with what others are doing, and way too many people letting these “concerned people” kill their vibe.
Live and let live, people!
Blinders on, you do you!
Never miss a Monday…
But I’m gonna, and you know why?!
Because Mondays workout was already done, on Sunday!
Sara needed to do her Monday workout a day early because she had an overnight planned, so I was like well, we have a “night game” and those typically keep me up later than usual (and as is the case last night, is a LOT of adrenaline to come down from!) so rather than staying up late and then sluggishly working my way through an early workout, why not just get it done?!
So that’s what we did, and my sleepy ass is thanking me for it today, because I was still wired for a while after that wild game!
And as a reminder, today and every day, just LOVE and be the LIGHT!
Rafiki with the wisdom!
Sorry for the language, but… 🙌🏼
It’s true, and its such a valuable lesson to learn… not all things are your problem to address. Realizing as such is powerful AND helps you control the stress load you take on, which as we know, contributes to EVERYTHING, such as handling illness, disease, keeping yourself healthy… everything.
Stress is a real issue (spoken like a true Diabetic who realized first hand what stressing over everything was doing to my health – nothing good!)
We have enough on our plates without absorbing everyone else’s issues too!
Make this your mantra 😊
You are a warrior, You are BRAVE, you are COURAGEOUS, you are STRONG, RESILIENT, and CAPABLE.
You are the wilderness, so don’t hold back, and if anyone questions your abilities? You be sure to show ’em whats up!
You know how on a plane, they tell you in the event of an emergency, put your own oxygen mask on first…?
Sometimes, I tend to care about stuff TOO much.
It’s not uncommon for me to put the feelings of others ahead of my own.
I would often so much rather avoid any confrontations or difficult conversations that I sit and stew, til the lid tends to boil over, and then I APOLOGIZE. Apologize for FEELING.
I am quick to excuse people, to act like I don’t deserve respect, basic human decency, or common courtesy.
But… all the personal development I have done over the years FINALLY clicked.
And I REALIZED…
I MATTER. My NEEDS matter. My FEELINGS matter.
And since how you treat yourself is how others treat you – there’s gonna be some changes up in here. I am an empathetic person, I am always willing to listen and help someone, but I will no longer be sacrificing my own feelings and my own wellbeing for that.
You can’t pour from an empty cup. Trust me, I have tried, and tried, and tried. You can’t.
Opinions are great, and we need diverse perspectives… but opinions change nothing.
