How much money do you spend each month getting your hair done, getting a manicure, or pedicure, a massage or facials? Most women will do almost anything to feel good about themselves and present the image they want others to see.
Although buying clothes, make-up, shoes, jewelry, and purses can lift our spirits in seconds, those material things rarely have the power to change us on the inside! Regardless of the image we present on the outside, the most important aspect of who we are is what is happening on the inside!
When we give to friends, family, work, job, community, home, often times there is little opportunity left to work on the “YOU” part of being a woman!
The “YOU” part of being a woman is what we do to improve who we are from the inside; mentally and spiritually. This is when we take the opportunity for self development and to understand ourselves and what makes us truly happy. I have met women who are just a sigh away from having a nervous breakdown because they are trying so hard to hold it all together and don’t take time for themselves. Shopping sprees and material things can only take us so far. Understanding ourselves and what we are truly passionate about will enable us to be our most healthy self.
Start by asking yourself, “What do I want?” At first you may only come up with ideas about what you don’t want, but you have to know what you don’t want before you can know what you do want.
Spending time with someone who will tell you “you can do it” instead of “why would you want to do that?” will allow you to pursue your dreams.
What kind of New Beginning could you create in your life if you were to spend time working on the “YOU” side of yourself as much as you do the outside or trying to please others? Investing in your “self”, means finding a way to put back in all that is taken out of you.
Are you so busy building your business, running the organization, being a mom, being a partner, or being forced to learn that next step to stay ahead of the game that you don’t take time for “YOU”? Self development is a key factor to your success in life.
When you truly understand the need for personal growth and then find the way to nurture the Inner Strength you possess, you will understand the gift that is “YOU”.
