What I Know For Sure

Self Care (5)      Love Yourself (2)      Healthy Boundaries (1)      Values (1)     
Iíve always been the type of person to succumb to my friendsí and familiesí wishes, even if it affected my health and well-being. I put them before myself and suffered significantly for it.

But at least I could rationalize it by seeing how happy it made them. Until it got to the point where I just couldnít take it anymore.

Self Care

So I decided to make a change and do what makes me happy. It got to a point in my life where I just had to, I was absolutely miserable. I did what I wanted to do for a very long time, I picked up and moved from Boston, Massachusetts to Brisbane, Australia and didnít look back. It was the best decision of my life. I couldnít be happier.

It took me a long time to make this leap, it didnít happen overnight. And during the transition period, I put together a list of my core values and beliefs that helped me to remember what is really important and what I needed to make me truly happy. I thought Iíd share them with you now to help in case you are also going through a difficult time in your life. I hope these help you as much as theyíve helped me.

- You must care and love yourself before you are able to truly care and love for others.
- Physical activity is crucial for the mind, soul and body.
- Healthy boundaries equal healthy relationships with friends and family.
- Listen to your body, it always knows best.
- Play is just, maybe, even more, important as work.
- Making a difference matters.
- Spiritual connections are worth exploring.
- Structure and balance are part of an important self care routine.
- Happiness is not wealth, prestige or success. It is the realization that you, and love, are enough.
-Truth is always better than a lie; honest better than fabrications.
