PRACTICING WITH LOVE
HOW IT STARTED
There are a lot of ways to practice living your life with love. Until I started becoming intentional #inwritingandlife I was mostly just spinning my wheels. It felt like lots of moving parts, possibly a hamster wheel, and a bit of drifting off into space.
Honest fact: I did not hold myself in high regard. And because of that, it was hard to regard the work I was doing with others and for myself with any value.
When I started focusing on what was going on internally, there was a shift. Maybe you’ve noticed how things just seem to work out for some people. I am starting to believe it is a result of their authenticity. Tell me what you think.
Here are a few of the steps I’ve taken over the last few years:
I made a list of the things that were most important to me (Self, Relationships, Work)
I started doing inner work and I got a therapist.
I established a solid self-care strategy.
I learned to regulate my emotions and also allowed myself to feel all the feelings.
I started seeking out meaningful connections that aligned with the things that were important to me.
I began to see each of my relationships as a learning opportunity.
Starting from the base of personality typing I began to notice what was working for me and what wasn’t in terms of who I am at my very core.
I continue to define and redefine what my purpose and passion are and make sure they are in alignment.
I listen to myself and honor my gut instinct.
I no longer strive for approval, but self-acceptance.
HOW IT’S GOING
Something I noticed in the last two months is how showing up intentionally for yourself, your people and your business translates into growth - personally and professionally.
As I’ve become more purposeful and focused about what I have to offer and how that translates into what people need, I notice that my messaging has become distinctly more authentic.
I notice my own purpose and passion are coming into alignment.
PUTTING IT INTO PRACTICE
One of the trends for growing your business on Instagram in 2022 is to collaborate with others. As I turn what once was viewed as that “writing thing”/ hobby into a sustainable source of income, I am going to push into the relationships I’ve built along the way. It’s not just building a life, we’re creating a community of people who support each other #inwritingandlife!
