By starting with ourselves.
Your self-esteem is the perfect reflection of your personal brand. Nurture it. Guide it. Protect it. Love it.
We place our attention on what we value
We each have valuable resources that are inherent to just living, and existing. These resources can be allocated as we see fit. Time, energy, attention and money are a few. I am suggesting compassion, empathy, and love are essential resources to offer yourself, consistently.
Self-compassion, for example, is about the personal feelings you have about...yourself. It's about giving yourself grace, forgiveness, and love; even during spaces when you are out-of-bounds, make an error, make poor judgments, or bad choices. In these spaces, you are still valuable so it is critically important to spend freely.
Self-empathy is about loving you and all your humaneness. It's understanding that you are worthy, even in the midst of shame. In fact, having compassion for yourself is the greatest gift you can offer during times hardship and self-reflection. Be kind with yourself.
Self-love is your duty to do your best to both guard and affirm your physical, mental, emotional, spiritual + financial well-being - at all times. It's not selfish. It's self preservation. Care for yourself because you are worthy.
Joy begins with self -compassion; -empathy; and -love. They each partner together to create a space to give you what your body, mind, and soul needs; to survive, revive, and thrive. Be brave. Be bold. Be happy. You deserve it.
