How well do you really KNOW yourself?
​​​​​​​.
.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about the importance of KNOWING ourselves. ​​​​​​​.
.
Knowing how you like to structure your days, what kinds of environments you like to work in, what kinds of foods you like to eat, what inspires you, what turns your on, what you like to do with your free time, what triggers you, what your wounds are, what you need in intimate relationships in order to feel GOOD.
.
.
​​​The funny part about knowing yourself is that the journey to “knowing” never ends. We are *constantly* changing and evolving, so we need to keep learning about ourselves as we grow.
.
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​.
The way I navigate every day of my life comes from the root of KNOWING myself. I know what matters to me, what makes me happy, the ways my sensitive self-needs to be cared for and comforted, what I need to physically thrive, what my values are, what my triggers are, and what my challenges are.
.
.
I used to not know myself AT ALL. I would just look at what everyone else was doing or what I perceived to be expected from me, and did that --> ​​​​​It led me down a path of really low self-esteem, binge eating, tons of insecurity, a career path that was not right for me, and a lack of intimacy. ​​​​​​​.
.
Getting to KNOW myself, little by little, has made me feel so much more empowered.
.
.
Empowered around food and knowing how to make my OWN choices. Empowered in my career - to navigate it in accordance to what I really want. ​​​​​​Empowered in my relationships - to find my VOICE, express myself fully, and ask for what I need. ​​​​​​​Empowered in the way I live my daily life - spending my time in ways that light me up, every day.
.
.
Knowing yourself gives you power. It gives you a feeling of safety within the world. It gives you the foundation for creating a life that makes YOU feel awesome.
​​.
.
​​​​​​​How committed are you to continue to get to KNOW yourself deeply as you grow and evolve?
​​​​​​​.

Enough said.

For artist @ettavee, joy is...
🏠 An unexpected pop of color, like a colorful door. 🎨 A colorful paint palette.
🎉 Glitter and confetti. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Is it any wonder Jessi is this month's #joymaker?! Her use of bright light and pops of color make her a perfect representative for the #energyaesthetic. 🌈 Jessi began her love affair with color at the age of four and has been creating ever since. She is inspired by life in France, travel adventures, tropical settings, colorful fruit and pop culture.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Today I am #grateful for EVERY gift. Thank you #God for surrounding me in all that is #positive #kind #loving #joyful and meant for me. I embrace the #blessings with a grateful heart.

"I sought the Lord, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears.⠀
Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.⠀
This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; He saved him out of all his troubles.⠀
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them." - Psalm 34:4-7⠀
