“Be sure to put your own oxygen mask on first before assisting others.”
For many of us, our main mission in life is to help others. We go through our days, weeks, and months waking up in the morning with the purpose of filling the needs of people other than ourselves. Whether we’re in retail, finance, healthcare, etc. our sense of self-worth, and oftentimes our success, is determined by making people happy or filling THEIR buckets, rather than our own.
I am here to tell you today, with absolute certainty, that if you do not fulfill your own needs in life FIRST, before helping others, it is almost impossible to have the greatest impact on the people you are serving. Whether it’s children, clients, friends, or partners, our relationships with those around us suffer when we are not living our best lives.
Think about it, how many times have you put others’ needs before your own to only end up feeling drained or resentful? How many times have you said something that ended up hurting a relationship or made a mistake in your job just because you were unhappy/unable to put all of your attention into that moment?
The way we feel about ourselves has a direct correlation to everything else we touch in life. When we’re out of balance, worn down, unfocused, lacking passion, how can we expect the other aspects of our lives to thrive (career, health, relationships, etc.)?
The answer is, they won’t. And more than likely, if you do not take care of yourself, your time, your energy, and your overall wellness, everything else will start to crumble no matter how much effort you exert.
So, how do we “put our oxygen mask on first” when we’re programmed to constantly strive to please and serve other people?
It can be as simple as reaching up and grabbing the life-saving device overhead. Or, it can be a longer journey that requires much more healing and introspection. What’s important to remember in this new age of #selfcare and ‘filling our buckets’, is doing so looks different for everyone.
The one component that’s absolutely necessary for us all to thrive, however, is self-reflection. By taking the time to find a safe space to reflect on our lives, identify what’s going well and what we want to nurture, we can more clearly envision what it is we want to create and implement. The law of attraction states that what we focus on will come to us, so I’ve planned an event to help you achieve just that.
“You become the true master of your life when you learn to control where your attention goes.”
I am so excited to be hosting this workshop to help you set aside time for yourself, craft your intentions, and develop a vision board to help you manifest them in the weeks, months, and even years to come. If you’ve never participated in an event like this before or are looking for ways to live a more vibrant life, this is the perfect opportunity to do so.
Join me for The Ultimate Vision Board Party April 26th from 6-9pm where we will:
> Start with a guided meditation to help you become clear on your Big Vision
> Connect with your Heart’s Desires in a unique exercise to identify your goals for the future and how to get there
> Identify the areas of your life you want to make the biggest change
> Become crystal clear on what you want to be, do, have and accomplish
> Focus on the things that bring you joy and discover how to live them out every day!
> Get connected with the TZB community attending the party and create your Vision Board in the company of like-minded individuals (all materials will be provided)
Let’s spend the evening together discovering what we truly want in life, healing what’s holding us back, setting clear, strong intentions, and creating a plan of action to manifest them. You have the power to achieve everything you desire. No more waiting, no more putting your needs on the back burner. It’s time for you to THRIVE!
