It’s time to check in on your EMOTIONAL bank account, my friend!
Think back to this past week. Did it leave you feeling drained, depleted or maybe even flat out broke?
Or are you feeling like your cup runneth over with goodness today? Whichever camp you are in, I want you to take a few minutes and ask yourself “Why do I feel this way?”
If you are running on empty, chances are you had a lot of energetic withdrawals this week. Work, kids, to-dos, draining relationships (I call them energy vampires…), and other life stressors that one by one suck away our light and joy.
On the other hand, if you are feeling like a millionaire what did you do this past week that contributed to that sparkly feeling? Did you have a big win at work, spend time with people who actually leave you feeling richer and more alive, did you take really good care of your body, or finally get that meditation practice going every day?
Let’s also take a minute or two to review your inner dialogue from this past week. You talk to yourself more than anyone else in your life. You know, that little voice up in your head that either has little red horns 👹 or a halo 😇 hanging over its head. If you spent this past week beating yourself up, chances are you feel like you went a few rounds at an MMA fight.
You see…every thought you think goes out to your body as an impulse. If you are constantly berating yourself, you’re going to feel like crap. Conversely, if you’ve been working on your INNER CHEERLEADER (I spoke about this in last week’s Snack!) then hopefully you are starting to feel that inner glow!
I’ve told you before, I spent A LOT of my younger life as my worst enemy. My inner dialogue was horrible 😳. Once I learned to truly speak to myself the way I want others who love me to speak to me, my life totally changed! Now, I make a point starting every day with a loving inner dialog. I ask myself what I need to hear that will boost me up for the day ahead. I create powerful mantras that I can repeat as needed when I start to waiver. And I end the day by telling myself good job for whatever I did, handled, or decided to not do.
No matter how your week ended, the good news is that a brand new week starts right now! Set the intention to end it feeling like a million bucks and take time every day to make some major deposits in your energetic bank account.
You deserve it and I’m rooting for you!!
