I wanted to ask you three very important questions.
If you were to name three people who are your highest priority, who would they be?
Next, name the person who’s your very top priority.
Last question….did you list yourself as your top priority, or did you even make it onto your list at all?
Often we find ourselves giving our time, energy, and resources to everyone and everything else, neglecting ourselves in the process.
While being there for others is important, we also need to recognize the significance of self-care and self-prioritization.
When you make yourself your highest priority, you are acknowledging your own worth and value. You are recognizing that your needs, dreams, and aspirations matter.
Besides, who else’s responsibility is it to make you their priority if it isn’t you?
By prioritizing yourself, you are giving yourself permission to invest in your personal growth, happiness, and overall well-being.
Taking care of yourself is not selfish; it is an act of self-love and self-respect.
Just as the oxygen masks on an airplane instruct us to secure our own before helping others, we must ensure our own well-being before effectively being able to support those around us.
And by attending to your own needs, you will be better equipped to show up for others in a more present, genuine, and compassionate way.
When you make yourself your highest priority, you demonstrate self-love and self-respect, setting a positive example for others in your life to do the same.
Remember, you deserve to truly thrive, not just get by.
With lots of love,
