focus on you
Running up the west side highway this morning before teaching an International Women’s Day class got me thinking: whomever you are, Focus on you. Truth is — i don’t play in the he haters club, period. Some of the best lessons ive learned have been from men. And some of the worst bullying ive been victim to, have been by women. Whatever you are, whoever you are, focus on you. Celebrate that. Every
We are so quick to lose focus on our well being,
when we have a new kid
A new job
A new house
A new love
The first thing that escapes is self care. Yes, women in particular are the first to lose sight of self, To give rather than get, to not make time for themselves. WHAT? Stop taking time making excuses. People pleasing will ONLY get you so far, Make time for you! When i started my business, the one thing i truly committed to was me. Selfish? Sure. but you have to be selfish to be selfless. ANd if im not my best self, everything around me suffers.
Limit the noise,
Focus on you
i don’t mean lose sight of those around you, On the contrary --
When you choose you, The people worth focusing on, will show up clearer. Because those who don’t respect your self care, will not stick around.
Less fluff. More feel. More real.
We waste energy focusing on what others are wearing, eating, dating, doing, making$—
So fascinated or distracted by the latest fads. We don’t dress for ourselves, we dress for others. We don’t eat what we need, we eat what we’re told. We date or marry the idea of someone, work for the job title, live the life that makes “sense.” That isn't living. That is existing.
Why not focus all of that energy on getting intimate with yourself? Your body will tell you what it needs - Spiritually, emotionally, sexually, physically. Your task is to learn to listen.
Limit the noise,
Focus on you.
The best professional in the world can’t tell you what your body craves, what turns you on, what doesnt.
This media driven existence focuses outward. Why not refocus within?
Your gut will guide you
Your belly will tell you when to fuel + when it is full
Your body will show you it can move
Your hips will react to your desires
Your head will distract you but
Your heart will show you the way
Can you recommit to the idea of making time,
To take time,
One life —- In this life. #flowthruthefight.
