"Glitter is my favorite color"
If you know Robyn, You know she loves her sparkle and glitter!
And her favorite glitter is nature's glitter, Geods! I absolutely love the way this discussion rolled right into exactly what our talk for today is all about.
Robyn goes on to say "Do you know what I love about geods? They are beautiful because they are unique. They don't have to be perfect, they are not exact, they are so unique and so different... and each one is beautiful"
Just. Like. You.
She also talks about how she was wonderfully created unique and different, and she didn't always like it. As a woman who is 6' 4" she is not just the tallest woman, she is often the tallest person in a room. And once she embraced it, everything became all about being just a little "extra", a little extra length, a little extra leg and all the glitter.
Robyn came on specifically to talk about how we, as women, give, give, give, and do not always take time for ourselves.
But here's the thing.
You cannot pour from an empty cup.
DO NOT apologize for taking time for you, your mental health and your peace.
And listen moms...
If you do not have boundaries, you teach your children not to have them either. The entire reason we often put ourselves last is because we want our children to feel loved and supported... and yet we teach them that as an adult they can not continue to love and support themselves because everyone else must be taken care of first. We teach our daughters that they cannot put themselves first, and we teach our boys that a woman's job is to put everyone else ahead of her.
So again, it's ok to have boundaries, it's ok to say no, it's ok to say "no, because that does not align with my goals".
Does it bring you joy? Does it bring you money? Does it feed you or suck your energy? Is it important to who you want to be aligned with?
You only get one skin and mind. Take time to take care of them!
