March’s Journey of the month is The Weekly Appreciation Plan otherwise know as the Weekly Unlocking Practice
Your Love Locks have a huge impact on your reality and your relationships.
Feeling good about yourself leads to self-compassion.
Higher levels of self-compassion produce a few benefits:
- Procrastinate less. Compared to those who try to use guilt, shame, or fear as motivators to complete a project or goal, the ones who practice self-compassion are the ones who spend less time dragging their feet when it comes time to perform a task.
- Re-engage after failure. Those who are accepting and caring towards themselves after a perceived or real failure will be much more likely to “get back on the horse” and keep going.
- Engage in activities that will create a better reality. Activities like going after a job promotion, taking on hobbies, and trying new things.
- Take on more accountability. Contrary to what some might assume, self-compassion does not relieve someone of their ownership of a problem; rather, self-compassion actually serves to assist someone in being able to make a more realistic assessment of the role they played in problem process.
- Are open to feedback. Those who are more compassionate with themselves will not crumble if they receive feedback from others. This is because those who practice self-compassion know they have inherent value and abilities to recover— even if the feedback is not positive.
