Heed Your Own Advice

Ok.  I'll admit it.  This post is selfish.  I wrote it for me.

Actually, truth be told, I write all of my posts for me.  I, of course, hope that they will help you but yup.  They're for me.  Selfish.

Anyway, what inspired the subject of this post was the truly wonderful conversation I had with my mom earlier this evening.  We talked about the the usual "stuff" going on in our respective lives--work, weather, family members--but we also got into some more personal stuff, most of which was about me.

Ever since I can remember, I've been so hard on myself.  I really don't like that about myself but it is what it is.  Try as I might to change it, I have a really hard time!  I fear that it's going to be an eternal struggle but I know it doesn't have to be and that I can change.

During our conversation, my mom offered me some great advice and that was to listen to my own words, aka my blog posts!  As I mentioned, I write them for you all but they come from my heart and soul.  The posts I share are what I'm feeling in the moment but I hope that those feelings will resonate with you all as well.  The advice, guidance, whatever you want to call it, that I offer is sincere.  That is to say, I firmly stand behind what I offer--I just need to start listening to myself!

To conclude this short post, I encourage you all to heed your own advice.  Pay attention to your own wise words.  You have more knowledge and compassion for yourselves than you realize.  Tune into it and listen to your inner voice.

I will do the same.

With love, light and happiness,
