#SelfCare - Your Words Hold Power.

I got a reading while at the RenFair yesterday and one of the many things shared was to remember MY words hold power. The lady then added something that I haven’t been able to stop thinking about - “so be careful what you tell yourself.”

I always knew that words hold power. I try to be careful with what I say, ESPECIALLY when I am hurt and angry. I would rather say nothing until I can control myself than have to live with the words I throw out there. I know myself - I might not always remember precise words but I DO remember how words make me feel. If your words traumatize me ... good luck. As an author, I absolutely know my words hold power and again, I always try to make sure I use the appropriate ones to convey from my heart to the readers.

But what I tell myself? Yeah ... I’m not as vigilant and I don’t extend the same compassion to myself.

So this was a great reminder that as I try to improve my self care and making sure I treat MYSELF better, I need to be vigilant with the inner thoughts and conversations I hold.

No more belittling.
No more chipping away at my self esteem with careless words and judgments.
No more being critical and unkind.

It really does start with how we think and feel. It often doesn’t come out in our words or acts without first filtering through our emotions and thoughts.

If you wouldn’t say it to someone you love, why would you say it to yourself? There’s no need for “brutal” honesty. I can self evaluate and make course corrections in ways that don’t shred my spirit and make me feel less than.

The reality is - I need to be my own best friend. I need to be my own best support. I need to be my biggest cheerleader.

So this coming week is all about being more aware and remembering that there’s no replacing those words once they’re out. Be kinder to yourself. Never forget the value you hold and how important you are to us all ❤️🦋
