When we talk about self care we often spend time talking about the tiny shifts that can be made. Things that won’t scare us off when we’re feeling overwhelmed and that anyone could do, no matter what their lives look like.
That’s all important and we all have to start somewhere - but what happens when we look at the other end of the spectrum for a while too?
What happens when we think of ourselves as absolute Goddesses who are here in this life to experience all the beauty and wonder and delicious happiness that the world has to offer?
What happens when we cast off this need to please everyone, everyone in the whole world apart from ourselves?
How would it feel to not obsess over whether anyone thinks that you’re being self indulgent to care for yourself in the way you’ve been caring for other people for years?
What if we allowed ourselves to truly acknowledge what our lives would look like if we cast off the self doubt? The feeling of being less than worthy?
Imagine we saw ourselves as our friends see us? As our daughters and our loved ones and our partners?
Imagine treating ourselves the way we treat them? Loving ourselves the way they love us?
These baby steps into self care and self love are important - but sometimes we need to stop putting our lives on the back burner. Stop the bullsh*t about how we’ll look after ourselves better, later. About how life will be different when we just have more time. When we just have more money. When we just get this big thing out of the way that is taking up all of our brain space.
The truth is - life will be different when we care about ourselves enough to treat ourselves differently. When we realise that we are in charge of how good we feel and how well we are cared for. We care for everyone and everything else - we can care for ourselves that way too.
Self care doesn’t have to cost money and it doesn’t have to take a lot of time.
But also, why shouldn’t it?
We can have it both ways and if free and quick is your only option - then start there.
But also remember that your time is yours. You own it. You have the power to dedicate some of it - hell - lots of it(!) to yourself.
And that money you make? It’s powerful. Women with money are powerful creatures who can use that power for good. Spend some on making yourself feel good and watch how those ripple effects spread through the whole world.
You deserve to feel good.
More than that. You owe it to yourself to live a life in which you feel good.
And do you know what?
All those people in your life who are around you? They will benefit from you feeling good too.
Happiness and good feelings are contagious & they make the world a better place.
So start with you - and watch the world change ♥️
