Ever get caught talking on the phone, replying to a text message and talking to your kid all at the same time? We try to multitask thinking if we divide our time it will get done quicker. As a result we may end up texting the wrong thing, missing something important in a conversation or not connecting with your child. Stop for a moment and consciously invest in what you are doing. The person who you are talking to will feel the difference.
As I sit here to write this, coffee and rusk alongside me, I am reminded of how I’ve come in my journey to understanding ME and learning the art of ‘self-management’. I’ve thrown this word around a lot lately, mainly because after years of working on myself, and learning to accept and love all of me, I am finally in the starting stages of my first book, and as I have written, the words ‘managing myself’ have shouted-out from every page.
You see as I journal all that I have discovered on this self-love journey, I have realized that all I have done, is merely learnt to manage me; a combination of self love, positive self talk, learning to live and deal with negative emotions constructively and work towards bursting with passion for the life I live.
Managing yourself is a beautiful gift that you get to give yourself everyday. It may mean saying no a few more times than is comfortable, and letting yourself off the hook when you sob after a long day. It may mean taking the kids for a daily walk cos you know this will prevent you from losing your cool (again) or perhaps limiting your social media intake as you know what it does to your self worth. Whatever it is…Get to know YOU and take empowering steps to manage your Beautiful self!!
