My Trick for Feeling Better about Myself
As a Transformational Life Coach, it is important to me to walk the talk.
So what does that look like in my day to day life?
I have a daily exercise practice.
I have a daily practice to sit in quiet and make time for my thoughts.
And I look for areas in my life that are not entirely aligned with the message I want to convey to myself and others.
Think about areas in your life that you wish to improve.
Identify those areas, take a step back, and see what tools you could utilize to bring that area in line with the areas that are working well.
What Changes Will Help You Feel Better?
For you, it may be meal time. Or exercise. Or online organization. Or household organization. This is the place, when you really look at it, you mostly look away.
I came to realize that place in my life was my closet.
It was stuffed with way too many dresses, pants, shirts, shoes, bags and scarfs that no longer served me, yet still took up precious closet space.
More importantly, what I realized is that this is a space in which I spend time every day, and the messages I was sending myself were – You’re a mess. You’re sloppy. You’re not important to me.
What We Put Out is Mirrored Back
You see what we put out is mirrored back to us.
So in that case, whether I was conscious of it or not, those were the subtle messages I was receiving each morning as I entered my overstuffed closet.
Yet once that was in my consciousness I felt inspired to get to work.
I implemented one of my favorite exercises that I share in my book, A Mom’s Guide to Creating a Magical Life.
It’s a Feng Shui method of clutter clearing, or as I prefer to say, Space Making!
For 9 days I removed 27 items from my closet.
Marie Kondo’s method for deciding what to keep came in handy, although if you’re familiar with her work, there was no way in hell I was totally emptying out all the contents of my closet!
I touched each object and really asked myself if it brought me joy, or not.
Even if it still had the tags on it. Even if the voice in my head said, “Hey but you spent so much on that,” I decided to let it go.
Since then I’ve brought three bags of clothes to my two favorite consignment shops and built up quite a balance to play with in the future.
And I’m happy to report there is so much space to receive a new items that bring me joy.
Now each day when I walk in my closet I delight at the order, the arrangement of colors and most importantly the message I’m sending to myself: I care about you.
My invitation to you.
Take a step back and look through new eyes.
What area of your life is dragging you down?
Are you ready to give it your attention and make a shift?
What are the messages you’re wishing to offer yourself?
I’d love to hear!
In the meantime, I’m off to clean out all the clutter that has accumulated in my car!
