❤️ YOU BELONG TO YOURSELF ❤️

I love this quote by Brené Brown. You belong to yourself, no one else. You can share yourself, your body, your vulnerability, your emotions with people you choose to share it with but just because you share yourself, doesn’t mean they own you. 

.

Never abandon yourself and your truth for other people. Stand in your power and speak your truth. If people leave you when you do, let them go, they’re not for you and it doesn’t mean anything about you. Notice the stories you tell yourself and let those go too 🤗🙏🏼
.
This year, I had the longest time I was single ever in my life. I really learnt to be with myself. I got to know myself so much better. I felt lonely, I felt free, I felt connected, I felt all sorts of feelings. I wanted to distract myself from feeling uncomfortable emotions by being with someone and I’m so glad I didn’t. It was one of the best things I did, because feeling whole, knowing who I am, without being with someone is very freeing and empowering 🔥
.
I honestly feel learning to be with yourself is one of the most important things to do to live your truth. You enjoy exploring yourself without having to look outside of yourself for approval and validation. Who are you when you’re not in a relationship? What do you like? What don’t you like? What do you fear people will find out about you? What parts of you do you avoid loving and accepting about yourself? Everyone has a few, you’re not alone. Start from there. See, hold and honour all of you 🤗❤️

I love you 💛

✨ WHAT STORY ARE YOU TELLING YOURSELF? ✨

Yesterday I had a session with my coach and this question is something she always asks me when I go into my Ego. I use it in my coaching sessions as well as asking myself to change my perception and see the truth.

Yesterday I had a new sense of appreciation for it. So I wanted to share these steps with you 😘

.

When you are triggered, feeling anxious, angry etc, ask yourself 👇🏼
.
✨ What story am I telling myself? ✨
.
For example you’re talking to someone and they’re not listening to you. You’re repeating yourself. The story you’re telling yourself could be:
- I’m not heard.
- I’m unimportant.
- I don’t matter.
.
Then go, ok that’s the story. Then, ask:
- Is that true?
- What’s the truth?
- What story could I tell myself that will serve me?
.
The first story you were telling yourself wasn’t serving you. You might as well replace the story with another one that will serve you. Such as:
- The person infront of me is just not present, nothing to do with me.
- They’re in their Ego and their patterns are playing out.
.
.
SO 4 STEPS:
✨ What story am I telling myself?
✨ Is that true?
✨ What’s the truth?
✨ Follow that and chill out 💁🏽‍♀️❤️
.
.
It’s all about catching yourself in the moment and bringing yourself back to alignment as quick as you can, this is ownership of your life and mastery of your awareness 🔥
.
Would love to hear how you get on with this 😘

I love you 💛
