TAKING CARE OF ME SO I CAN TAKE CARE OF YOU

Updated: Nov 23, 2022

It seemed weird to me at first…Waking up in the morning and NOT opening my laptop until I was in a state of calm. Turning off the computer when I was stressing about getting something done on time & going for a hike. Taking a nap in the middle of the day instead of chugging a coffee and championing myself through the to-do list.


You see, I have been a professional people pleaser for the last 8 years since I got sober & started building this company. I have had false beliefs driving my behaviour that told me that I had to sacrifice myself and my well-being to be successful.


What was the result?

  • monthly (sometimes weekly) BURNOUT

  • ZERO self-care (crashing out in exhaustion is not self-care, it’s a sign of self-deprivation)

  • Lower revenue

  • Unsatisfied clients

  • High stress (24-7)

  • Weight gain

  • Lack of sleep

  • Inability to enjoy the moments when I wasn’t working


THE LIST COULD GO ON FOREVER…


And it did…until I made the DECISION to:

  • Walk away when I feel anxious

  • Put my mental, physical & spiritual well-being ahead of all else

  • Love myself through the uncomfortable feelings I was avoiding through all of this.

I remind myself that:

  • I have nothing to make up for - I’ve already done my best in cleaning up the past.

  • Everything happens in perfect time. (Even when my mind says it has to be done NOW)

  • When I live in flow, I am more creative, intuitive and work less yet make more $.


EFFICIENT AS F%^& if you ask me!
