Do you sometimes ask yourself questions that don't exactly help? Questions like, "Why did I do that?" "What's wrong with me?"
There are so many questions we ask ourselves that are disempowering, make us feel like shit and can send us into a downward spiral.
I've got a lovely, empowering question for you to use as a replacement.
"Is this loving to me?"
Simple. Powerful. Gentle.
It's incredibly helpful. Very practical. It's a question that always has your best interest at heart.
Here's how I've used it: with my to-do list. I look at my list and ask, "Are each of these things loving to me?" If the answer is yes, I do them. If it's no, then I remove them or put it off for another time. I trust that things that genuinely need to be done will get in the "it's loving to me" column in time.
Here's the other way I use it, when I'm having a bad day. Yep, life coaches have them too, and I'm saying negative, unkind things to myself, like, "you're not doing enough!" "You aren't smart enough to figure out Facebook ads!" I stop and ask myself, "Is that loving to me?" Wow. That stops me dead in my tracks. I stop and let myself feel love for myself. Then I go back to whatever it is I'm doing, with a loving attitude.
It's such an empowering question. Try it! Tell me how you like it!
