A few days ago, I shared a post about freedom to be heard. Above is a list of ways to intentionally hear and understand yourself but I think a better title would be 6 Ways to Show Up for Yourself. Part of feeling heard and understood, is when we show up for ourselves.

We can write stories all day about speaking up and saving the world but what does it mean if those words aren’t improving us as human beings? If I’m going to write, I’m going to write in way that improves me as a human so I can improve the lives of those around me. So these intentions, or ways to show up, are an important part of my growth.

In case you missed it

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
