Monday Motivation

Make a wish!

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.

— Margaret Fuller

Knowledge is power. 

What is one new fact, idea, or perspective you will share with another person today?

It is our choices… that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

— J.K. Rowling

What is one small healthy choice you will commit to this week?

*

Self-Love Action

I will play a fun energy experiment this week and see if I can make someone who is tense or closed off smile or relax, just by the energy I bring to our interaction.

Just as you can bring positive energy to a negative-minded person, if you meet another person with pleasant energy, he or she will mirror that same energy back to you.

Self-Love Action

I will look for an occasion this week when I can practice telling someone no with love. Knowing that I can say no in a kind and respectful way helps me feel more comfortable setting authentic boundaries.

When you say no to others when yes is not an authentic answer is how you can show yourself love and respect, and be present 100% during the moments when yes is a true answer.

Self-Love Action

If I find myself comparing myself to someone I encounter at work, the gym, or on social media and it leaves me despairing and feeling incapable, I can gently remind myself that this person has many challenges I am not considering or not aware of. We are all on unique paths with unique blessings and challenges.

Remember, one snapshot or post of someone else’s life is not the whole picture.

Self-Love Action

If I observe that I am not my best self today, I will meet myself with compassion and discern what I need – more rest, a new supplement or nutrient, more support, more fun, a break from work, a vent session to a friend or family member, my journal, or a counselor or wellness coach.

The days when you are not your best self are the days when you need self-compassion the most.
