A love note to you

You are phenomenal. You are wonderful. You are inspirational. You are enough. You are on your unique journey of learning and growing. You are a blessing.

Imagine if these were the thoughts swirling around your mind at any given moment? Thoughts of affirmation, kind thoughts, gentle thoughts, encouraging thoughts…maybe even, thoughts of love. I’ve heard it said, “Where your mind goes, your heart flows.” So maybe it’s time to fill your mind with thoughts that are nourishing to your entire body and soul. And as you intentionally sow seeds of self-love, they will sprout buds of self-confidence, self-worth and self-forgiveness. As you deepen your love of self, you’ll more readily offer yourself compassion; you’ll treat yourself with more gentleness and grace. You’ll see yourself stepping further and further out of your comfort zone, willing to try new things, understanding that failure is part of learning and finally excited to experience the process of discovery as opposed to dwelling on the potential outcome of your goals.

This new perspective; these new practices will eventually lead you to re-discovering old passions and uncovering new joys. When you’re ready to embark on this part of your journey of self-discovery, I want you to try writing a love note to yourself. Remind yourself of all the ways you bring light into this world. Remind yourself of the many things you deserve like love, respect, honesty, self-care, kindness and gentleness. Please hear this, you deserve to be treated like you matter…because you do. You don’t deserve to be hurt, even by yourself. You deserve the opportunity to keep getting better, to keep improving, to keep growing into the phenomenal woman you were created to be.

So write a love note to you, and at the end of it, don’t forget to remind yourself of these truths, “I am phenomenal. I am wonderful. I am inspirational. I am enough. I am on my unique journey of learning and growing. I am a blessing.”  You can download these reminders by clicking on the ‘Love note to you’ picture below.

Where are you planted?

Some of us have healthy roots, strong stems and beautiful leaves. Today, I want you to look at yourself a little bit closer. Are you planted in shallow soil? Are there rocks all around you? Are you not getting enough nutrients? Do you feel like you’re not getting enough sunlight?

Matthew 13, talks about the parable of the farmer sowing seeds. Some got eaten by birds, some wilted under the scorching sun, some were overtaken by other plants but some produced abundant crops.

“Maybe it’s time to be open to the blessings and beautiful abundance that’s meant just for you..” [Tweet this]

So I’ll ask you again, where are you planted? If you find yourself planted in an unhealthy place where you can’t grow and bloom beautifully and bear good fruit. Maybe it’s time to consider planting yourself deeper into your relationship with God. Maybe it’s time to surround yourself with good healthy friendships. Maybe it’s time to be open to the blessings and beautiful abundance that’s meant just for you.

You are meant to be more and do more but you can’t be effective if your roots are exposed and not getting what they need to survive and thrive. It’s time to invest in yourself. Plant yourself where you’ll get all of the healthy (self-care) nutrients you need, and in doing so, you’ll finally begin to start living your best life.
