I felt so good when I posted my blog last Wednesday!
I felt powerful. I felt respected. I felt loved.
I didn’t feel these things because I got compliments from others. As a matter of fact, I haven’t gotten any feedback at all, so as far as I know, it’s possible nobody even read last week’s post.
I shared last week (https://lenaehrenberg.com/2019/02/07/the-diamond-rule/) that I almost didn’t post by the end of the day and then realized I didn’t want to pass up meeting an obligation to myself.
I felt these things because of what I think about fulfilling an obligation to myself. I think I showed myself respect, so I feel respected. I think I showed myself love, so I feel loved. Both of those feelings together make me feel powerful!
That’s the most important reason for you to create goals for yourself and then schedule the time to perform the necessary tasks toward creating them – and treat those calendar items the same way you would treat an obligation to another person.
And the impact isn’t just about meeting one solitary obligation. Showing up has a snowball effect. I did it at the last minute last time, today I got back onto my original schedule and am writing ahead of time so I can post first-thing on the appropriate day.
Smart Girl, if you had a date with a man you really liked you’d put it on your calendar and then get ready and show up for it – wouldn’t you? You’d show up for him.
Well, isn’t it time for you to show how much you like yourself? Show up for your SELF as willingly and fully as you do for a man about whom you are excited!
Hmm, maybe you’re showing how much you like yourself by not showing up…
A man who treats you with love and respect will appear when you deserve to be treated that way – and you always deserve to be treated that way. (Hint, he’s already here.)
You’ll see him and accept him when you believe that you deserve to be treated that way. And the way you’ll know that you believe it is when you treat yourself with the same love and respect you want to receive from a man.
I know you can do it! I also know you will feel so much better on the other side! And if you need help, I’m only a click away.
Do you desire more love in your life? You can have more love!
Do you want to have more fun dating? You can have more fun!
