Most of my guest speakers did. Because our self-worth was tied to doing, because forgiveness, compassion, and trust were things we never applied to ourselves. Until we realized these things are essential. Learn to put you on your priority list -- yes, you. And you need to be first on your priority list -- not your kids, your spouse, your mother. It's like when the flight attendant tells you to secure your own oxygen mask before helping others.
You can't be of service to others if you don't take care of you.

You need your oxygen i. Stop reacting and start living from a place of action. If you don't like something, it's up to you to change it. Figure out what you really want -- not your spouse, your mother, your kids, the PTA What do you want?
Cardi B’s “Invasion of Privacy” Is as Studious as It Is Bombastic
And if you don't know the answer to that question, it might be time to take out your journal and ponder that Stop self-sabotaging -- Easier said than done, huh? Here's the thing: Adversity happens when you ignore that inner voice of wisdom in favor of external pressures to act or do a certain thing.
Listen to that inner voice of wisdom and life will flow much more smoothly for you. Stop the diet mentality -- I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Diet is a four-letter word. Restriction, deprivation, and food rules are asking to be broken. No one can be "perfect". Everything in moderation. Heal your relationship with food and your body -- Yes, it takes time, but it is possible.
Everything happens for a reason, including your health challenges -- two of my guests spoke about the lessons they learned from their own health issues breast cancer and how grateful they are that they were given the opportunity the illness provided to learn more about themselves. Get comfortable in your body -- So often we feel blame and shame when it comes to our body, but our bodies are our greatest messengers and tell us when things are not going okay.
Embracing Womanhood: Why I'm Still A Work in Progress
If you are experiencing a health challenge of any sort, ask your body what it's trying to tell you and what it needs from you. Reconnect with your sacred soul -- You are the wisest person you know. You know you best and you know what you need. If you don't think that is true, it's time to reconnect in with yourself, your inner voice of wisdom, your body. The answers you seek are within you. See the beauty inside of you -- Your body is a miracle, inside and out.
It performs countless miracles for you every single day your heart beats, you breathe, you heal without even having to think about it. Maybe you could try showing it some gratitude instead of loathing? Create your ideal life -- you are in charge of you -- it's your life. If you're not happy with it, change something! You sparkle!

My greatest daily rebellion is to not be fooled and to believe in my own strength. My greatest act of defiance is one of self-love, because with that I have begun to combat the misogyny that has kept me down until now. The internalized misogyny that convinced me I was sort of powerful, but that I was flawed. The glass ceiling that I am fighting is also inside of me.
It is the barrier that keeps women from loving themselves—and therefore each other. Misogyny is not about Us vs. Misogyny is more pernicious. It divides us amongst ourselves. Compassion for myself as a woman has grown into the courage to be truly vocal and present, and to give and receive support without shame. It has released me from operating out of fear and insecurity.

Above all, self-compassion empowers me to show up every day for my community. Today, I speak out for others and support them more than ever.
I want to be whatever my soul is pushing me to be and I am on standing at the door to a future where that is a real possibility. And, if I have learned anything from my daily practice of self-love for my femininity, it is that my power does not come in like a wrecking ball. Instead, it is fierce and fluid like the ocean, rising up with waves that erode even the toughest structures.
It cannot be calculated. It is raw and real, alive and radiant and it is about to crack the glass within me wide open. Those who fear it tell me to sit down, they call it witchy, bitchy, sassy, or Crooked. They laugh and condescend. But they are the critics and I am the director. I am not overreacting. I am existing. So, where do we go from here? We start a daily practice of embracing our magic and telling our truth. If you already have, dig even deeper. Write an even better story and love even bigger.
We need each other. We need to be better about embracing that. There is no shame in it, only strength. Be honest with yourself and re-decide who you want to be. Tell it to yourself every night and every morning. Live it. Own it.
