what is the one thing you are committed to doing differently this year?
Does it have to do with energy? Or boundaries? Or self-respect, by any chance? Cuz... if it does, we might be on the same page!
Me, I am redefining how I am showing up in my relationships. Straight UP.
See, there's this little thing called the Law of Reciprocity....
And let me tell you why it IS life changing.
As women we're taught that we must give. We must give what we have and don't have; we must give unconditionally... in our friendships, in our romantic relationships, at our jobs... we must let the energy poooouuuuuur out of our bodies and shower all those who ask for it.
And I'm saying, nah,
No more one sided friendships where I play counselor but never get the same quality of attention in return.
No more romantic partnerships that demand I abandon my passion in order to validate their insecurities.
No more professional positions that suck up my talent and offer back no inspiration.
It's time we stopped feeling bad for demanding what we deserve.
It's time we treated our energy as sacred material that only gets expended if the pursuit can offer a comparable return. And I don't just mean money, I mean anything that just feels good.
Where in your life do you feel like your energy is seeping through the cracks?
Cause... FYI, It's not okay or "natural" to feel consistently exhausted.
You're not a "bad" person if you are not "helpful" to every single species infesting this planet.
Reclaim your fuel.
Your joy is more useful than your overwhelm!
Your power is more attractive than your productivity.
You're not a soda machine, you're a bottle of top shelf champagne :)
So make your investments a special occasion.
