One of the things that I have been working on for a while now is putting myself first. I am beginning to realize that this is the key to getting some of the things I want in my life. I actually never thought of it that way until I noticed how I was taking care of some of the things around me. When I didn’t get up and take care of me I didn’t take care of anything else. The two basically go hand in hand. In my quest to be more positive I am learning the first lesson is to make myself feel that way on the inside out.
I am learning that there are too many days when I look in my mirror and say I don’t feel like doing my hair and just don’t do it. Then when my husband comes home or looks at me and says when are you going to do your hair I get all upset cause he asked. But the truth is if I was taking care of myself like I should have been he never would’ve had to ask that question. Not saying I can’t have bad hair days but mine would be bad hair weeks. Plus it doesn’t connect with where I want to be business wise either. So I feel like I owe it to myself to take care of myself so that I can receive the positive things that I need to receive. The only way to do that is to reflect what I want everyone else to see. I want people to want to work with me. I can be treating myself bad and expect others to treat me well. So it is time for me to step up and show I am the one to work with. This year I want to project how I feel and how I want to feel even when I don’t feel it. I want my husband and kids to always wonder if I’m going to do my hair. Ha ha ha! It’s just time to take care of me.
I hope to attract more of the things that I want and keep some of the things I don’t want away.

I totally agree! There’s a saying that we teach people how to treat us. If we don’t love and honor ourselves no one else will. I’ve learned that treating myself has improved my relationships with other people. I also noticed I don’t tolerate disrespect or non-forward moving people. I like to keep my space positive, loving, & inspiring.

Yes I agree. I am learning so much about myself. I definitely find that treating myself better has shown me how I don’t want to be treated.
