- Was 2015 filled with self-awareness, self-love, & personal growth?
- Did you define your wants, needs, & desires in life and love?
- Did you consistently make choices in alignment with those wants, needs, & desires?
- Has the authentic "you" emerged yet?
Can you believe this our last "52PickMeUp" of 2015? How do you sum up a year of honest self-reflection and journaling? And how do you quantify the value of continually developing your self-awareness as a guide for making conscious choices that are in alignment with your real needs, your wildest dreams, and your deepest desires? How does it feel not to sweat your single status knowing it absolutely does not define you; but that you define yourself (& your worth) with your thoughts, values, choices, actions and reactions to your life experiences. That you define yourself by the way you engage the world and communicate with others. That you define yourself by choosing to lead a significant life even without a significant other.
All that matters now is to love the one you're with (YOU). And to fall so madly in love with "you" that you prioritize your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health. #52PickMeUp is your weekly invitation to do just that; to have an intimate conversation with yourself that might reveal the most vulnerable corners of your soul that beg to be heard and healed. Or it may challenge you to admit being stuck in a negative mindset, realize that you're making poor choices, or repeating the same life lessons over and over again rather than seizing them as opportunities for growth. And it's also a reminder to speak your truth, ask for support, and accept it without shame.
#52PickMeUp is your inspiration for creating grounding rituals that nurture your body, mind, and spirit. And the reminder to celebrate yourself, your successes, and to bask in a little bit of gratitude. And that you don't have to celebrate alone when you remain connected to a community of like minded people because everyone needs a sense of belonging; for companionship, support, inspiration, and motivation.
#52PickMeUp is about knowing who you are, what you stand for, your values, and your boundaries. And recognizing, on a large scale, what you can contribute to the world; and on a smaller, more personal scale, what you can contribute to a relationship. And loving yourself so much that you never lose your authentic self in either context.
