Today we’re going to get rid of any guilt or stress that you might feel when you begin to put yourself first.

If you’ve ever felt a little selfish for putting you first, then listen to this…

We care for that which we value.

So the first thing you must do is take a look at YOUR VALUE, and how much YOU VALUE YOURSELF.

How much do you value YOU and your life?

Are you willing to carry the VALUE OF YOU WELL?

Are you ready?

It starts with S.E.L.F.

S- Stay in your OWN lane. Mind your own business.

Stay in your own lane, but don’t STAND STILL.

Keep moving. Life is motion. Motion is life.

E- Evaluate yourself FIRST.

L- Love yourself like you show love to others.

Love God. Love Yourself. Love Others.

In that order.

This is the secret to your success.

Remember the “Diamond Rule.”

Others will treat you as you treat you.

How are you doing with this?

It’s time to check yourself.

F- Forgive yourself and others. For NOT caring for you as you desire…and deserve.

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) 


Write down 3 things you could start doing today to show yourself how much you love and care for YOU.

I’d love to hear about it.
