Lately Lynne has been on a mission to support and guide her clients and those around her to become more aware of their “selfies.”
She’s not talking about the self-portrait photo’s you take and upload to social media for all to see, she’s talking about YOU!
She’s talking about your personality, your values, and the set of characteristics that make you individual, and different from everyone else.
Her focus of late has been to promote understanding and awareness of one’s own self-worth, self-belief and self-love.
So what does all this mean?
Here are Lynne’s definitions to guide you:
Self-worth is priceless. It is the sense of one’s own value or worth as a person.
Self-belief is the strongest belief. It is the confidence one has in their own abilities and judgement.
Self-love is unconditional. It is regard for one’s own well-being and happiness.
So do you have all of the above?
Do you value your selfies?
For all of the above, it can be all too easy to look outwards, and give control to others to take care of our personal worth, our beliefs and to love us. But it then becomes all too easy for others to take it away.
Maybe this is your opportunity to re-focus your attention. To gain an understanding and awareness of how important knowing and taking care of your selfies can be.
These “selfies” belong to you and no-one else. Why not make them your responsibility? Why not make them your priority?
We all have the ability to realise our true selfies, but they can become buried and we can lose sight of them. But when they are present, and you give time to them, Lynne truly believes they can become your support system.
So how might you go about unearthing your selfies, to give them your attention and make them your responsibility?
10 ways to check in with yourself: your self-worth, your self-belief and your self-love.
1. Set and know your own boundaries. Be clear on what you find acceptable and unacceptable, and be protective of your boundaries. Don’t let anyone cross them or put you beyond them.
2. Make time for yourself – what things are important to you?
3. Appreciate yourself for you, your unique qualities and personality. It is not necessary to change you to fit and suit others that don’t see or appreciate them.
4. Check in with yourself once in a while. Reviewing and updating your personal template, your intentions, and values can help bring you back to living in the present, and not by an old programme.
5. Appreciate and accept compliments and feedback about your professional and personal life.
6. Gain confidence from interacting with others, learning from them, and from their experiences as well as your own & use personal skills and abilities appropriately.
7. Look at ways to expand your horizons. Be open to new opportunities. Be open to change.
8. Love yourself as you would want others to love you.
9. Care about yourself, you are important. Care about what happens to you and how others treat you.
10. Take responsibility for your own self-love, and act when this precious emotion is being misused.
So it’s now over to you, what state are your selfies in?
Are they being ignored or neglected, or maybe they just need bringing into focus?
If you would like some guidance on how to work on your selfies, Lynne can support you with this, either through her 1:2:1 intuitive coaching, via her messages on Facebook or Instagram and also her recent publication the “Arse Kicking with a hug” Message Book.
