The Valentine You Give Yourself – Living on Purpose
When you think of Valentine’s Day, you immediately think of chocolate. But what if you thought of gifting yourself a really good Valentine’s present — self-love and taking care of the stuff that keeps you awake at night!? Read more…
“What you eat today, walks and talks tomorrow,” I was known to exclaim as a Registered Dietitian. And years later I would also add, “What I do today ‘talks’ tomorrow,” meaning what I do or do not do keeps me awake at night. At least once a week I coach a client filled with remorse and regrets. They are disappointed about a missed opportunity like not getting out of an unfulfilling relationship sooner or getting out of a relationship too soon. Or regretting they did not start a private practice like they wanted to for the past 5 years. Or they are truly sad they did not spend more time with the people and things they love. We tend to keep the things we didn’t do stuffed with negative emotions way in the back of our brain. It sinks our spirit when we think of them. But they are always with us even in the beautiful moments of our life.
Today a client wrote,
“I worked sometimes 12 day stretches as I said yes to every opportunity — presentations, round tables, research, publications in addition to my very busy clinical load…it helped me get to where I am today but at a sacrifice. It led to chronic migraines, burnout and a need for a break.”
She stopped the busy and overwhelm and moved out West for a total change to find work life balance and “to work to live and not live to work.” She is finding balance again with hiking, friends, playing with friends and LOVING the sunshine. She wanted to put God and family before work, and she is. She created a life with no regrets! She was a deliberate creator!
