Challenging you to PRACTICE your Practice~

Self-Compassion, Self-kindness

Discovering a self-kindness practice that makes sense to you and actually feels DOABLE is a HUGE step in saving yourself from YOURSELF and stepping up to become your own HERO*.
                    (If you haven’t chosen a practice yet, join us HERE.)

But your chosen “practice” won’t do ANYTHING to improve the quality of your life or increase your own appreciation of who YOU are and what YOU have to offer, if you don’t take the time to PRACTICE it.

And I mean, CONSISTENTLY. Because it only takes 4 CONSECUTIVE DAYS of following through on this commitment (or any other) to turn it into a new habit,according to research psychologists. And that’s a PIECE OF CAKE.

So today, I dare you to STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING.

Seriously.

And I dare you to take the FIRST STEP in creating the foundation for this nourishing habit by using THIS VERY MOMENT to practice APPLYING your self-kindness practice to your own inner conversation. 

  • What are the things you’re always beating yourself up about? (Maybe that you’re NOT GOOD ENOUGH or SMART ENOUGH? or CONFIDENT ENOUGH?)
  • Dredge it up NOW, and put your self-kindness practice to WORK. 
    • If you’re feeling UNMOTIVATED, read this to get on board and JUST DO IT.

And BOOM! Day One ACCOMPLISHED, just like THAT.

So throughout today and the rest of this week, I dare you to continue practicing your practice AT LEAST ONCE each day, whenever and wherever feels best and easiest for you.

IMPLORE you to truly PRIORITIZE THIS TIME for yourself… and COMMIT to it!… because your ability to get to the next level in your life DEPENDS upon it. 

And what’s MORE, I dare you to give yourself SPECIAL PERMISSION to LET GO of the rules. Because there is truly NO RIGHT WAY to do this. All that matters is that this practice is effective for YOU. Let it grow and evolve in whatever way SUPPORTS YOU BEST and feels pretty darn DELICIOUS… so you’ll not only have FAITH in this tool and it’s unquestionable ability to change your thoughts/LIFE, but also so you’ll WANT to utilize this tool — time and time again — throughout your LIFE.

So LET’S DO THIS. This week, I CHALLENGE YOU to JUST PRACTICE your self-kindness practice, aiming for progress, not perfection!, so you can EMPOWER YOURSELF to BE THE CHANGE you wish to see in YOUR own world and within your own crazy, BEAUTIFUL life and begin to create positive HABITS that will support you from THIS MOMENT ON.

I KNOW you are absolutely and completely CAPABLE of THIS.
Now go PROVE IT to yourself~
