Love Myself

Things I’m much better at since I started to intentionally love myself

Setting boundaries
Self Care
My writing
Letting people go when it’s time
Allowing myself room to grow and change
Prioritizing myself

It always blows my mind how much everything is connected to self love. It’s so connected and always makes such a positive impact that I’m surprised it takes so much to get myself to do it. Here’s an example, just recently I was feeling the pressure. Bills are tight. I had some things I wanted to do. And some things I was waiting for but sleep came over me. Like a heavy sleep. I was gunna fight it but after years of shaming myself for naps, I decided I’d let myself nap for a bit. I was knocked out. Didn’t take any time at all for me to fall asleep. And I kid you not, I woke up just in time to get the exact email I had been waiting for months for.

I was tired for a reason for all of those years in my past and I always felt so much shame and made myself depressed because of needing rest. I finally accepted (years later) that I was actually just pregnant more often than I wasn’t pregnant which was taking a toll on my iron levels and making me sleepy. So anyways now that my body is my own and my energy levels are back, when I’m tired, I trust my body.

So taking time to learn to trust what my body is telling m is a huge part of learning to actively love myself. It’s not easy but it’s always worth the time.

What things are you much better at since you started intentionally loving yourself?

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.
