After a meeting with my fabulous biz coach this morning, I made myself breakfast.
As I was about to make it I stopped and thought, “What do I actually feel like having for breakfast?”
After decades of being ‘busy mother’ and knowing that it is easy to not honour ourselves in the course of our day (it’s a habit worth breaking!), I took a few seconds to think about what I’d like rather than what was quick.
My Southland roots kicked in and I was overcome with the desire for cheese rolls and a cup of ‘gumboot tea’.
So I did just that. When I made the tea it was a bit milky and I thought ‘flip it’ and made another one to my liking.
While these are just small moments, they have made a big difference in how I feel about ‘me’. Honouring myself in the course of my day makes it easier to honour others and have authentic relationships.
I did go a step further and took my breakfast out into the sunshine and our lovely backyard view.
Lesson? I’m sure you can figure it out.
What are you going to do today that honours who you are??
Make the damn breakfast Buy the damn dress Live the damn life
