1. Choosing inner peace over reacting. 2. Walking away from drama. 3. Being your own validation. 4. Trusting yourself. 5. Honouring your needs. 6. Recognising unhealthy patterns. 7. Falling back in love with your life.
Every day make a tiny agreement with yourself and follow through with it. You’ll start to see yourself as a person who honours their word, even when no one’s watching. And that’s what creates true self-confidence.

I used to run and hide from my feelings especially when I felt something that was upsetting, painful, or uncomfortable. But over time I’ve learned to accept all of my feelings. I know that in order for me to work through them, I must first honor and embrace all emotions. They are a part of me. Therefore they are meaningful and valid.
Pick a feeling that you’re afraid or ashamed of. Feeling fear, anger, or sadness is okay as long as you don’t let it define you. Embrace your emotions and remind yourself how valuable they are. Don’t invalidate your feelings. Honor them.
Every difficult situation I’ve experienced has ultimately changed me for the better. I’ve grown stronger as a human being and I have been able to advocate for others who are still struggling to be heard. I can’t tell you what a privilege and honor it is for me to use my own pain to help people find strength and hopefully prevent unneeded suffering for many others. These positive rays of light were only able to come through the darkness because I allowed them to, because I was open to them, and because I didn’t dwell on my past or my pain. I simply honored it.
Find something positive about a struggle you’re facing and share it with someone who’s struggling. They’ll know something better is coming to them too. There is always an opportunity to turn a negative situation into a positive one as long as you are open to the possibility. (Not my words.)
1. You commit to and practice observing yourself. 2. You notice a story you’re telling yourself. 3. You set a boundary you may not have set before. 4. You honour a commitment to yourself. 5. You take ownership and accountability when there’s something to own. 6. You can see another perspective outside of your own. 7. You see the pain of others in their reactivity without over personalizing. 8. You move away from changing others and move towards integrating the change you’d like to see for yourself.
GROWTH is often uncomfortable, messy, and full of feelings you weren’t EXPECTING. But it’s necessary.
So many of the lessons I’ve learned have been about standing up for myself and setting boundaries. Most people in our current world are used to inconsistent approach & deceptive behaviour, which are both cheap & unacceptable in accordance to HUMAN standards. It’s really hard and sometimes even painful. In work environments and everyday life, be sure to set boundaries for those you’re spending time with. Make sure they’re aware with what you’re comfortable with and your limitations. Communicate with others to make sure you are honoring yourself. It’s hard, but it’s worth it. Always.
You don’t owe anybody the present other than yourself. Take time for you. Respect yourself and your privacy. Set boundaries. Set one boundary today in your professional or personal life. (Not my words). Life is fun, let it be.
