As a burnt-out + sensitive woman, it's easy to feel like you're stuck in a rut at times or in seasons. You've been putting all your energy into work, family, and friends, and you're left feeling depleted and unfulfilled. But the key to living a fulfilling life lies in building self-awareness and self-acceptance.
Self Awareness Heals
Self-awareness means taking the time to reflect on your thoughts, feelings, and actions without thinking you're not being productive...THIS is the actual best way to be productive! Can you be honest with yourself at this very moment? Do you spend time learning about yourself and the way your energy works best?
It means being honest with yourself about your strengths and weaknesses and understanding how they impact your life. It means finding what resonates in tools like Human Design, Gene Keys and even the Enneagram to really lean in to the gifts of YOU. Then it is about adding in a ton of self love and acceptance.
Self-acceptance means embracing all of who you are, including your flaws and imperfections.
It means recognizing that you're not perfect, and that's okay.
I can write a post and make this all sound so simple..."just become self aware and love yourself" but you and I both know it is NOT that easy. It requires consistency, resilience and the strength to go through your struggles with the belief that the struggle is an opportunity to bust through your blocks to live in your truth.
By building self-awareness and self-acceptance, you can start to make changes in your life that will lead to greater happiness and fulfillment. Honestly, I believe it's the ONLY way if you don't want to keep revisiting the same stories and blocks happening in your life as a sensitive purpose driven woman.
You'll be able to identify what's important to you, set boundaries, and make choices that align with your values. You'll be able to trust your intuition and your decision making. You'll also be able to let go of the things that aren't serving you, whether that's a toxic relationship or a job that's draining your energy. Imagine this!! No really, pause and really imagine this!!
So how do you build self-awareness and self-acceptance?
It starts with taking time for yourself. Whether that's through Human Design, meditation, journaling, or simply taking a walk in nature (I do all of these), it's important to give yourself space to reflect and connect with your inner self. It also means being kind and compassionate towards yourself, instead of constantly criticizing and judging yourself. I have tons of tools in my wellBEing tool belt that I've collected over the years on all of this and you can do the same if you're committed.
Remember, building self-awareness and self-acceptance is a journey, not a destination. It takes time and effort, but the rewards are worth it. THIS IS A LIFE'S WORTH OF WORK. THERE IS NO FINISH LINE.
By embracing all of who you are and making choices that align with your values, you can create a fulfilling and meaningful life that you live beYOUtifully on purpose.
