I make excuses. Every. Single. Day. I find creative and clever ways to 

  1. neglect much-needed self-care, and
  2. talk myself out of creating videos for my business.

Why? I greatly dislike stretching my aching muscles because it physically HURTS. I also cringe at the sound of my voice and 10 extra pounds on camera. I should be over these things by now, yet I am still held back by the same crap I vowed to overcome back in January.

Something’s gotta give because this is not productive and it’s April! So, with you as my witness, I’m going to finally stop this nonsense and REASSESS. 

Reassessing means to reconsider something in order to decide if you should change the way you feel about it or deal with it. It’s easy to reassess for others who need help (I’m the queen of that), but it’s tremendously difficult to reassess for yourself.

The process requires brutal honesty and patience, which means that you probably have to change your comfortable [and most likely dysfunctional] way of doing things. You have the power to reassess what’s sort-of-working and what’s totally-not-working, as well as what’s really-working too! Whichever road you choose, reassessing inevitably shines a light on the patterns and people that do not fully honor and serve you.

I have only begun to scratch the surface on what my lack of self-care and camera-fright is really about. I am going to need a few days/weeks to meditate, pray, and self-coach on it. I will definitely keep you posted on how my reassessing emerges next month.

Since it’s still early in the year and spring is all about new beginnings, don’t stress or suppress, reassess! Take a minute to ask yourself the following questions:

What is one area of your life that you want to reassess?

Once you identify that one thing,

When will you carve out the time to reassess?

This might take a while, so breathe in, schedule this sacred you-time into your calendar to ensure no interruptions, and trust that addressing your reassessing means you’ll be more equipped to receive an incoming blessing.

Pleasantly processing,
Coach Shanita
