Thank you!!! I can’t believe another challenge is over, and I can’t believe how much you all taught me! Your comments were fabulous, and I appreciate you more than you know.
Hopefully you’ve realized that you are your own best advocate. You know yourself–what you want, what you need, what you can do and what you can’t–better than anyone. You know when to challenge yourself, and when to pamper yourself.
We feel like we have a lot to prove. We want to prove that we are enough, we are strong/ we are lovable and we are worthy. But before you can prove yourself to anyone else, you have to believe it. Proof starts inward. You need to believe it, and once you prove it to yourself, you can prove yourself to others. Advocate for yourself and then advocate for others. Put you first.
I promised you a little gift at the end of the challenge. Anyone who wants one of the bracelets pictured, send me an email with your address and I will send them out in the coming weeks. And it was a tight race for the bigger gift, which is a judge’s gavel with the same words on it. Ultimately one person shared the challenge the most. Cathie O’Donnell–if you want the gavel, send me the best address to send it to! If not it will go to the runner up (and it was close!)
Get out there and advocate for yourself, my friends. Be your own advocate. That’s the best kind of self help there is.
