March 8th was International Women’s Day. Many people see it as a marker of how much we have accomplished – and how much further we need to go. In the past I’ve been guilty of getting so caught up in how much further we need to go that I forgot to celebrate. So this year I decided that, for me, this was simply a day to celebrate women – and celebrate the stroke of good fortune that allows me to be one!
We are exquisite beings! Intelligent, strong, capable, loving, forward-thinking, perceptive, inquisitive, determined, practical, effective, discerning, tenacious, audacious, gutsy, watchful and willing to do the work.
Oh, and some of us are also nurturing, gentle and kind. But, you know, not all of us. 😉 And not to the exclusion of everything else.
A few weeks ago I talked about celebrating your accomplishments, and how when you don’t do that you start to feel like a person who doesn’t accomplish anything.
When was the last time you celebrated yourself just for being you? Just because you exist?
When was the last time you sat down and made a list of all your amazing qualities? (Lena, stop with the lists!)
I want you to write it down so you can see it. This is your evidence list. I want you to be the attorney starting a case for herself – and the first step is discovery.
Then in those moments when you start to doubt yourself, your choices, your strengths and abilities I want you to pull out your list and wallow in the evidence of who you really are and how much you really accomplish.
Wallowing in all the good you do and have and are – that’s what I call a celebration!
I know you can do it! I also know you will feel so much better on the other side! And when 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!
Don’t know where to start or how to get to the next rung of the relationship ladder? I would love to help! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can schedule a free, 20 minute phone call so that you can tell me what you believe is holding you back and I can offer you at least one, specific, action you can take that will change your results.
What if today is the day you take an action that propels you forward into the rest of your happy, loving, romantic life!
Right now, take a moment and affirm for yourself:
