Taking care of our bodies is something we all know we should be doing. Doing it, however, sometimes falls off our priority list. These gentle reminders are meant to keep you on track or help you get back on track.
Have people in your world been talking about “One Word”?
They sure have been in mine.
They’ve been talking about it for weeks.
I didn’t know it was a “thing” until last year when a new friend told me about it.
I had created themed years before, but hadn’t refined the practice to a single word.
The practice is the same: Use your word/theme as a lens or filter for everything that happens in your life. You look for experiences where the word/theme develops and challenges you to become a better version of yourself.
You think you are headed in one direction and the Universe will take you in directions you never imagined!
It’s really pretty cool. 🙂
And that’s what this week’s episode is all about. Let me know what you think and if you will pick “One Word” for 2019.
Making and taking time for the activities and relationships that are most important to you is key to your health and happiness. Too often we let less important activities consume our time or we spend too much time making things perfect when “good enough” will do.
Continuing somewhat with the theme of “healthy boundaries,” this week I share thoughts on identifying activities as “non-negotiable,” to ensure that they get the proper attention that they deserve.
A boundary is a dividing line that separates two things.
An example is a property line. You own on what’s on one side of the line, your neighbor owns what is on the other side of that line. It is a clear distinction that allows you both to know who is responsible for what.
Personal boundaries do the same thing. They separate you from everyone else. They allow you to accept responsibility ONLY for the things YOU are responsible for. And they allow you to let other people take care of their own responsibilities.
This is Part 1 of 2 in a series about personal boundaries.
This week, we cover:
What they are
Why they matter
How to recognize when yours are being violated
Next week, Part 2 will cover some potential risks and the benefits associated with enforcing your personal boundaries.
