“If you can’t commit to yourself, then how can anyone else?” The words struck me like a bolt of lightning. It was a sobering moment when I realized that the difficulties that I’d experienced in my life were not the result of other people doing anything to me. They were the result of me not making a commitment to my own dreams, of not standing up for myself, and for allowing myself to be a doormat. On the flip side, when I dug a little deeper, I also realized that when I made a commitment to myself––took care of my health and well-being, set good relationship boundaries, jumped into projects that just tickled my soul––life flowed and those in my life showed up to love and support me. If you’re like most women–– or men––you’ve been conditioned to be self-sacrificing and to make other people’s priorities yours. Well, it’s time to be the star of your own story! In this workshop or speech, we’ll take a look at your life and how to become your own best friend. Since change can only happen with becoming aware of our current situations, we’ll discover: *times and places where you put your dreams on the back burner *results of putting your life on hold *commitments you need to make to yourself in body, mind, and spirit to get your life back on track *why taking care of yourself first is the best thing you can do for those in your life! Many of us have at one time or another thought: “When will it be my turn?” This thought is a telltale sign that we’re buying into a story that someone has written for us––so that we can meet their needs, help them achieve their goals, and live according to their agendas. But whose life is it anyway? It’s yours, and it’s time to become the star of your own story! To become the star, you need to activate the Four Pillars of Awareness: * Acknowledge that something’s missing in your life. * Assess where you’re feeling the most pain, lack of meaning, and discomfort. * Allow yourself to dream about what it is you do want to create in your life. * ACT! on the inspiration you receive that will bring you all that you desire in life!
