Time to flip that Golden Rule around:
"Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."
I say: "Do unto you as you would do unto others"
Meaning: Treat yourself as you would treat those in your life!
Be your own best friend.
Cheer and add support for yourself as you would for a loved one.
For me, that includes how I am with my clients. I want to be as available, understanding, helpful and supportive as I possibly can.
Why wouldn't I want to be that for me, too?!
When you hear this, you may think....yes, of course! However, do you implement it?
Sometimes we just need the reminder of things we already know.
BE YOUR OWN CHEERLEADER!
BE YOUR OWN FUCKING AWESOME BESTIE!
Whenever you are feeling low, ask yourself:
What would I say to or do for a good friend or loved one who is feeling this way?
THEN DO THAT VERY THING FOR YOU!
(this includes the possibility of pouring yourself a hot bevvie and having a supportive, uplifting conversation with yourself. No judgement here - I do it all the time! Chat away!)
The photo attached to this blog post is something I did for myself.
