I’ve never been this absorbed in my self-growth than I am now! My expectations for myself are set at an all time high. I’m at a point in my life where anything or anyone that’s mediocre can’t even get close to me. I mean that in the most humble way.
I’m evolving. I’m not the same woman I used to be, not even the same woman from a few months ago.
Part of investing in yourself is knowing your truth. The truth sometimes hurts and can often open Pandora’s box, and in that box most times is unforgiveness. It is so important to forgive. Forgive not only others, but yourself as well. Once you master that, it’s easier to work on your future wants and needs.
You ever been in a space where you want more? Like, you don’t even know what the “more” is—you’re just hungry for more in every aspect; whether it be relationships, financially, spiritually, etc.. I go to sleep thinking about how I can better myself and those around me. I wake up and get right back to thinking.
Have you ever felt like things weren’t happening fast enough? Me too! Although I’ve accomplished great things thus far—sometimes I get frustrated because I’m nowhere near where I want to be. I made up in my mind that I have no choice but to go hard for what I want. With prayer and grind, everything in life is tangible. Here’s ways I’ve been learning to invest in myself and making IT happen.
Building my confidence. I’ve learned to have a “can do” attitude with everything. I try my best to own my value and my self-love, so that anybody I come in contact with knows what I have to offer.
Being healthy. Physically, mentally and emotionally. Back in May I shared my story about not having it all together. Being healthy in every aspect is very important to me. Anybody or anything I feel can be a threat to my health, I’m off it immediately. The amount of time it took me to piece myself back together, I’m not willing to jeopardize my growth for anything. Health is wealth.
Skill investment. I’m constantly looking for ways to master my skills. There’s always room for improvement and learning.
Set short-term and long-term goals. “If you’re not taking the time to set goals, it’s like driving in the dark with the headlights turned off”. Goals should be realistic and timely.
Save money. I’ve actually always been great at saving money. If you’re going to spend a lot of money, spend it on experience. Like family trips out the country. My great-grandfather instilled that in me from a young age. Saving money is important because it takes money to make money.
Having patience is the hardest task for me, but it’s the key that leads to all great things.
“The best investment you can make is always in yourself. It’s always worth it. “
