When Was the Last Time You Said “Yes”

When was the last time you said “Yes” to yourself?

For me it was yesterday when I went to the grocery store to pick up some fresh fruit. To my surprise the strawberries had gone up extremely high in price. The old version of myself would have walked by them and bought some processed sweets because of course they are much cheaper.

But I ask at what cost? So, I leaned towards the newer version of myself and purchased the organic strawberries and that one yes, led to many yeses and over $70 later I was still elated that I said yes to ME!

So, I ask you once again, when was the last time that you said, yes to you and how did it make you feel?

Take the Pledge

Self-care–mind, body and spirit is very important.  Very often we do so much for others that taking care of ourselves is not in our list of priorities; but we must change that thought process.  Bryant McGill states that “taking care of yourself is the most powerful way to begin to take care of others.” The is an ongoing life lesson for me.  So I challenge each of you to take the following pledge:

  • To ask for what you want in life.
  • To remember that you cannot control other people’s actions. Just your reactions.
  • To define what happiness means and looks like to you.
  • To be more grateful for who’s in your life, instead of who’s not in your life.
  • To celebrate each victory, no matter how small.
  • To make time for the little things that bring you joy.

Taking time for self-care will empower and strengthen you to take care of others.

Make the pledge today!

It’s Time To Celebrate You!

It’s Time To Celebrate You!

Celebrating You Ministries hosted its inaugural women’s empowerment event on Saturday, May 5 in Dearborn, MI.  The room was filled with love and support for one another.  Comedian Dani Thomas had us laughing from the core and Nicole Thomas inspired us all with a message entitled, “You have the Capacity,”  The event also included  self-awareness and self-development exercises that helped us focus on our goals and dreams.

Celebrating You! Mind, Body, and Spirit was created to inspire women to celebrate ourselves.  We play so many roles in life; Mother, Daughter, Wife, Sister, Friend, Aunt, Grandmother, Employee/Employer and Caregiver.  Sometimes we lose the person (woman) that we are, while fulfilling our obligations.  The Celebrating You! blog and women’s empowerment events are created to encourage, empower, motivate, and inspire you to value not only who you, are but whose you are! The scripture says that you are a masterpiece that has been wonderfully and fearfully made in His likeness. You are worth celebrating your wins, everything that you have gone through has made you stronger. Now It’s time to celebrate you!
