Well, here we are – right in the “thick of it”. Our holiday season is in full swing, and it couldn’t be busier at both work and home. We are all trying to get countless things done in a really short period of time: end of year work commitments/goals, shopping lists, holiday parties, travel preparation, baking, and the list goes on and on. This time of year is focused on being selfless and giving to others – which can sometimes come at the expense of our own enjoyment of the season.
My challenge to you during the remaining days of 2018 is to be an Ally to yourself.
Morag Barrett explains, in the book Cultivate. The Power of Winning Relationships, there are four qualities of an Ally Mindset: Abundance & Generosity, Action & Accountability, Courage & Vulnerability, and Candor & Debate. We most often think of these qualities in reference to how we treat others, and it also applies to how you treat yourself.
