You are compassionate to everyone else through your work, but how is going on looking after yourself?
I know, we're only mid-January, but February is right around the corner. The month of love. Speaking as a woman changemaker and entrepreneur to the other rebel-girls out there, I want to make February the month of loving yourself first, knowing that if you do, you'll make more positive impact.
Whatever your age, I know that as a rebel girl you feel joy when you are disrupting the status quo to make change happen in ways that are meaningful to you, for people and planet.
You’re not afraid of hard work, in fact, you’re more likely to burn-out before you give up. And that is exactly the problem. As rebel girls, when we take this approach to life, we limit the good that we can do. We end up being stuck and not making a difference, which is the very thing that we’re trying to avoid.
This is your greatest rebel girl adventure!
February is the month of love. If you genuinely want to make more positive impact, then your greatest adventure for this year is to love yourself first. To learn to flourish, instead of burning out. In the words of Anais Nin, "Life shrinks or expands according to one's courage...The day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. Life is a process of becoming..." It's time to celebrate yourself.
This approach is backed up by the work of Barbara L Fredrickson, in her exploration of positive emotions. As you create a deep resonance of positivity around you, you will unfold a path full of joy and connection with others; you will deepen your resources for overcoming challenges; you will create the conditions for new ideas and solutions for positive impact.
As a problem-solver for people and planet, love is in fact at the heart of your social mission, so now it's time to learn to live love as your social mission in the everyday.
It’s not selfish, or woo-woo! We know the courage and persistence it takes to keep showing up to make positive change happen in our work, to start and run businesses.
There has never been anyone like you before, so honour yourself by speaking your truth, celebrate your unique blend of creativity and bring your solutions to life. Make this space for yourself and you'll make it for others too.
It's time to change perspective because where do you want your rebel girl adventures to lead you? If you really want to get there, it is time learn to love yourself first, so that you can open up with joy. Make time to nourish your soul and nurture your spirit to overflow with light into every space. Recognise how to be all of you, head into each day knowing that you can find your way forward.
