How to Be Happy,  Personal Development

Are you too hard on yourself?

So, I’ve been pretty hard on myself lately.  I’ve been letting that “get it all done now” voice inside me bug me to no end.  I’ve been putting a lot of pressure on myself to blog more, work on my book more, get more done, juggle more projects, and on it goes.  I had to put the breaks on this ridiculousness!

Every now and then, we have to stop and remind ourselves that we are enough, just as we are.  That we are always doing the best we can, and everything will come together just fine.  When we treat ourselves with love and compassion, we are actually MORE productive and can think more clearly then when we are hard on ourselves!  Plus, we have a lot more fun!

Take a moment right now to breathe in and give yourself credit for how amazing you are.  Remind yourself that you are enough, that you’re doing the best you can.  Then, do something kind for yourself ~ even something small that just takes a minute.  THEN you can check back in to your day.  Do this regularly (set a reminder in your phone if you feel inspired).  Kindness, compassion, and love for yourself make up the foundation for your happiest life.  (I just wrote that on my mirror!)  =)

Love & bliss,


P.S. ~ Don’t forget to check out the website for the amazing weekend retreat I’m part of in L.A. on June 9th & 10th called love. your. life.!  There will be 12 motivational speakers, gift bags, a great breakfast & more… all at a beautiful resort!  Would love to see you there!
