When you want space instead of a hug after a long day of work, you’re NOT WEIRD or UNGRATEFUL.
When you tell the waiter you want water with lemon but NO ice because it hurts your teeth, you’re NOT ANNOYING or a JERK.
And when you would rather read a book instead of accepting a spontaneous invite to meet up with friends, you’re most definitely NOT A LOSER.
Not. At. All.
All this actually MEANS is that you know what you want! and you are committed to HONORING your own desires to create the life that feels best for you!
And isn’t that the point anyway?
So this week, I DARE YOU to give yourself special permission to quit judging yourself and choosing to make your decision to live with honesty and integrity feel so PAINFUL and SELFISH.
And instead of forming an opinion about what your needs and preferences say about you as a person, I dare you to CONGRATULATE yourself for HONORING your desires AND your body-mind-spirit and doing all that you can in your power to nourish yourself in the way that feels best for you.
And today and throughout this week, I CHALLENGE YOU to STAND UP and start advocating for yourself/providing for your OWN needs for a change, so you can reduce your own POINTLESS suffering, and instead, start being your own HERO UNAPOLOGETICALLY, now and throughout your future.
Because, after all, being “SELFISH” is the single most SELFLESS thing you can do.
Here’s to inspiring others with your BOLD declaration of self-RESPECT and -LOVE!
Let’s do this,
