I used to be useless at boundaries. Totally useless (eyeroll). I was always stressed, always exhausted and eventually my body gave out. Since then I've had to learn something that I didn't event know I didn't know.
I remember what it felt like to first say no to a thought, to an idea. Previously I would have gone down the rabbit hole all while thinking that I was on the right track and doing something I needed to do. I was just threading water rather than living and I didn't even realise.
Turns out a lot of what I was doing in a day was actually not contributing to what I really wanted and needed in my life. Go figure!
So have a think about these questions:
My answers used to really tell me that I had no healthy boundaries.
So I said no, mainly inside my head. I closed some doors. I opened others. I changed my relationships with different people in different ways. I asked myself what I needed to stay healthy and happy - and what I didn't need. The process of putting healthy boundaries in place had begun...
The answers to these questions gave me the courage to move down the country, buy a house on my own, renovate that house, renovate the gardens and start a new business. It's giving me courage to do even more.
Today's message, especially at a time when we are all being tested in so many ways, is this.
Check your boundaries.
They are a really healthy thing. They are necessary for growth and reaching your potential as a person and a business owner.
