The most wonderful time of the year is upon us, which means #RedCupsSeason and festive drinks at @StarbucksUK. 🎄 My Christmas blend flat white is keeping me going on my travels today and keeping my hands nice and warm. #GiveGood
These pastel colored houses are 💕🏠 Эти будто нарисованные пастелью домики – милейший из видов, что можно представить 😌😻
Стало интересно, многие ли из вас уже нашли для себя то идеальное место, в которое готовы приезжать из года в год из сезона в сезон, или вы больше любите исследовать новые направления и места?🤩🌎
Being judged by others can be a painful experience.
It's one of the few things that is guaranteed to evoke seriously strong emotional reactions in most people.
That's because it hits the ego (and the heart!) hard.
The judgement of others can send us into frustration, anger, hate, hurt, insecurity, fear or despair.
And being judged is actually unavoidable, right?
You can't control what other people think, say or do.
We learn all too quickly in life that everyone gets to have their own beliefs and opinions, and we can't stop them from voicing those.
Sometimes those beliefs and opinions will contradict our own.
And… sometimes those beliefs and opinions might cause them to tell us that what we're doing is “wrong” according to them.
So, how do we deal with being judged by others?
Life isn't about avoiding people who are judgmental.
Because the cold hard facts are… almost everyone IS judgmental!
Even you and me, from time to time! True, right?
We fall into judgement of others so easily.
And even when we're choosing to live consciously and doing our very best to be loving, sometimes our egos take over and we accidentally find ourselves being judgmental.
So rather than thinking it's possible to AVOID being judged by others, you're much better to accept that it happens sometimes, and equip yourself with powerful new perspectives to help yourself.
It's not about you, it's about them.It doesn't matter what they think, it matters what you think.You don't have to convince them of anything.You don't need them to know the truth, you need to remind yourself of the truth.You don't need them to accept you or the situation, you need to come to your own acceptance of yourself and the situation.You can't stop them judging, so focus all your energy on detaching.AND… whenever you get REALLY triggered by someone judging you, consider that perhaps you're so upset because it hit a raw nerve. That raw nerve might be something you were already feeling insecure about. If so, then someone's judgement is just GOD SHOWING YOU WHAT YOU NEED TO ASK FOR HEALING WITHIN. PRAY ALWAYS! #TBIE
Is there a certain flower that reminds you of a loved one? My grandmother loved hibiscus and each time I see a perfect one like this I wish I could draw it for her and send it off to wherever she may be out there resting in paradise. 🌺
Give yourself permission to shine ✨💫 We all carry limiting beliefs around with us. They hold us down on the daily, preventing us from reaching our fullest potential. I am no exception. The thing us, most of us aren’t even aware of our limiting beliefs. We have developed these thought patterns from a really young age, fuelled by what we have been told by your parents, teachers, peers, friends and society. And so we walk through life, innocently controlled by our past, unknowingly making decisions based on these limiting beliefs that might long be outdated or straight up inaccurate.
The beautiful thing is that we all have the power to rewrite our story. We must actively choose what we wish for it to be. As I always say with everything, awareness is the first step. Once we become aware and conscious of our thoughts and beliefs that hold us down, we can slowly start stepping into our own power. We mustn’t let society steer our lives. It’s time to wake up, rewrite our stories and life our TRUTH.
But eeeehm Stef, how the hell do I do that, you may ask!? Here’s an exercise I like to do with my clients: • Write down 3 limiting beliefs you carry around with yourself.
• For each belief, write down one alternative TRUTH to extinguish and squash that limiting belief.
• Reread and remind yourself of your truth every day, by sticking sticky notes everywhere, setting yourself little reminders on your phone or revisiting your journalling whenever you need a bit of a pick me up. 💕
Give it a try and let me know how you go 🙏🏻
Look at what you want to change, gather a few people who believe in it like you do, and start moving forward. It’s important to remember that you don’t always need a destination. Sometimes, you just have to make forward motion. And you absolutely can. .
