I want to remind myself often that I am human, that I make mistakes - and that's okay. This list will continue to grow as I add things I want to keep handy for review.
Choose courage over comfort.
Make Mistakes – get uncomfortable.
It's important to be vulnerable
to live in my truth
to show up as I am
and own my story.
I cannot be brave without being vulnerable.
If I don't acknowledge my vulnerability,
I'll take my stuff out on others. Speaking my truth means being vulnerable.
When hurt, its easy to use the vulnerability of people I love against them. Don't.
If I behave out of line, admit it quickly and emphatically.
The shame and guilt of not doing so is heavy and harmful all around.
To experience joy I need to practice:
tolerance and more
If I want to go fast – I can go alone.
If I want to go far – it's better to go together.
When I am feeling put out,
what is the story I am telling myself?
Remember to ask only for what I need and offer what I can.
Is my stuff a scab or a scar? If it's a scab - I need to work on it to allow it to heal. Don't let the scabs pile up.
Self Care involves
doing a joyful thing just for the hell of it!
Have I been taking time daily for self care?
Mindfulness is active attention to the present,
observing thoughts and feelings without judgement. Am I living in the moment?
When someone triggers me emotionally, ride the wave!
What am I feeling? Come back to the present!
What's the story I'm telling yourself?
Remember that shame is deeper - thoughts like "I am..."
Guilt is more forgiving - "I can’t believe that I……."
