Well here we are. Day five already. Do you feel more radiant? Are you beaming?
Is there a little more love in your self care?
Today we are going to shift our focus to something all of us have in our lives – relationships. If you are like most women, then relationships play a central part in your life. I want you to think about the two most important ones in your life right now – two people that mean everything. Now chances are those two relationships also cause a significant amount of stress as well.
From my own life, i know that much of this stress was self-induced. Now wait. before you start on a rant about all the things the other people do- hear me out. We are talking about self care and feeling radiant ladies. The thing is, most of the time, we don’t actually know how we feel, never mind what we want or nee. Am I right? So then how do we expect others to know these things?
So the bottom line is self care means knowing yourself, then communicating that self in your relationships. Self care is actually improving everyone’s lives. Amazing isn’t it?
The challenge today is then to take all that you have learned about your new radiant self and communicate one thing in your relationships. Use our beautiful voice and instead of hiding, share a dream, a desire, a want or a need that you have.
I will give you an example form my life. Time is one of my love languages and for ever I would get so angry and resentful inside when friends, would be late to hang out, not show up or drop out early. I took it as a personal attack that I was not appreciated. The thing is, I never communicated this need. I assumed others knew. Through my self care practices and focusing on radiance, I learned that my time is valuable and when to recognize when I wasn’t feeling radiant. I learned how to speak up, use my voice and set boundaries around my time. This has greatly improved my life but also built trust in the relationships I do have.
I hope this example sparked an idea for you today of where you might like to start. Where would you benefit in your relationships from sharing your new found radiance?
As always, I would love to hear from you and how you are doing. Le the hear what you switch up in your morning ritual at email@example.com or on my instagram here
