The word Angel is in my name. Trust me, I am no angel. But...I try to be, don’t you? Look it up. I’ll bet you do!
Always trying to better myself and others, always trying to look at the bright side of a situation, always trying to be kind and helpful.
It’s exhausting really. People pleasing; being the yes girl!
I challenge you to loosen the reigns a bit. I have. It’s a work in progress.
Value yourself enough to know when you’re on overload. Saying, “No” to someone or something is okay. It’s saying yes to the one person who needs and deserves your love and help the most...YOU!
If you’re like me you feel the need to be that yes person to take on what you may not have the emotional time or energy for.
Stop. Listen to your own needs. You and those around you will be better for it.
Meditation is the clearest way to figure out what needs of your own need to be met before you can meet the needs of others.
Meditation is new and challenging to me, but I love how it grounds me even when I think I’m doing it wrong. (Spoiler alert for future blog mini-post...there’s no wrong way to meditate!)
Today my plate is full. Today I can not help anyone but me. I have goals and deadlines to meet.
That...“I’m not going to get everything done” lump is in my throat and I can’t take on another thing.
I’m still a yes person. I just say yes to myself more often now. And sometimes that yes is... “Yes, I will do that for you!” 😇
