Hey rebels .. Just wanted to remind you that it's OK to love yourself and put yourself first sometimes.
In fact , we become better parents, friends, spouses and co-workers when we really Truly do love ourselves.
Let go of those feelings that you need to become someone else, and let go of wishing you could have someone else's experiences or life. What if you just wake up and decide to start living your life on purpose , the way YOU want to.
It's definitely not important to fit into any mold of what you think society wants you to be. You should be you !
Ever heard of the crab effect ? There is a story about a man who observed a bucket of crabs while on vacation in Florida .. While all of the crabs were either motionless or squirming at the bottom of the bucket, one little crab kept crawling up the side in an effort to reach the top.
Each time the crab made his way closer to the top rim, a crab from below would reach up and pull him back down. Time and again, the little crab would climb the wall and time and again, one from below would pull him back.
By observing this behavior, it can be related to how we function as human beings.
This one crab did not want to be confined. He believed he had a choice and did not have to accept his lot in life. He was willing to venture outside of his imposed boundaries in search for freedom.
Unfortunately, the others in the group did not recognize that they too had a choice, and would not allow the venturing crab to leave the rest of them behind.
This is the same for you. Have you ever wanted to create something new for yourself or make a significant change that would give you a sense of freedom or purpose?
I have found .... That to create that big thing you want to do or step outside your comfort zone , a big leap and first step is deciding they you love and like yourself enough to pull yourself out of that bucket no matter how many people try to drag you backwards
❓Are you a morning person?
Today I figured out an optimal time I need to wake up in order to feel rested and fresh instead of being groggily getting ready for work still half asleep with my eyes closed. It's all about circadian rhythms and the way our body behaves during the day/night, but the fact that I can easily open my eyes before the alarm around 6:40 am, and can't even think of getting out of the bed at 7:40am was kind of surprising for me. I've never thought that sleeping 6 hours instead of 7 can actually make me feel better and wake up happier.
Сегодня утром произошло странное 🤔 Я обнаружила, что встать в 6:40 утра мне гораздо легче чем в 7:40, или даже 8. Я наконец решила начать прислушиваться к своим биологическим часам, и сегодня утро прошло менее болезненно, чем обычно (не смотря на то, что я спала всего 6 часов).
Вы с таким сталкивались? Когда вы вдруг открываете глаза до будильника, в прекрасном расположении духа и с прекрасно функционирующим сознанием 😅 Но вы решаете поваляться ещё 20 минут, засыпаете, и ВСЕ - момент упущен. И когда звонит будильник, вы сползаете с кровати и начинаете свой день с ненависти к окружающим 😂
