Welcome back lovelies! Last week I introduced the concept of self-care mastery, as I am leading you on a journey of 5 keys to achieve it. We discussed the concept of commitment as the first key. How was that experience for you? I would love to hear in the comments below.
This week we are diving into the second key to self-care mastery: Courage
Self-care mastery not only requires a commitment that you are making it a priority in your life, but the ongoing willingness to look at yourself with honesty and concern to say what is true for YOU! Your dreams are unique and your path to self-care mastery will be too. I have had clients ask me what is self-care and what does it look like, and my response is that it is different for everyone. Some people may enjoy activities outside or vigorous exercise. Others may see self care as a pampering experience, like manicures and pedicures, massages, or long hot bubble baths. Or even the act of re-decorating a room or organizing a closet could be seen as self-care for some individuals. It is different for everyone and that should be recognized and celebrated. Having the courage to seek and speak authentically about what you need in your life for self care is a core component of creating self-care mastery. It requires ongoing willingness, which is willingness even in times where it may be challenging to speak out or seek what you need. Many of us are willing to make changes, few of us have that ongoing willingness to stick it out when times may be tough. Have the courage to seek what you need and declare it to those around you.
This week I challenge you to have the courage to declare what you have committed to as part of your self-care mastery. This additional accountability will strengthen that courage muscle! Whether you are accountable by telling a family member or friend, or have accountability on social media is your choice, but take the step this week to be courageous by speaking truthfully on what it is you need and want in your life.
Have an amazing week and be courageous! We will continue your path to self-care mastery next week!
