I hope you are all doing well this wonderful Saturday. I am great, preparing to do some things that I enjoy and I hope you are doing the same. The purpose of today’s blog was to share my heart about a topic that is not often focused on. Have you ever heard the statement, “Follow Your Own Advice?” I hear people say it loosely when instructing others, but how often do we actually apply it.
Like other clinicians, I am a change agent, so I assist individuals with finding their strength within, how to obtain tools to improve their quality of life and also help them to realize that they can live their whole best life. With that being said, I realized recently that I have not been following my own advice. Well, not fully at least. I know for a fact, that I am not alone. There are many who give the best advice and encouragement yet find it difficult to put it into practice.
It is one of those things that can be considered by a nay-sayer, “as easier said than done.” However, I am of the mindset that if we actually believe in what we are saying to others, then we have the obligation to ourselves to apply the same actions. It is our responsibility to make sure that we are following our own advice.
You owe it to yourself, to serve yourself first. It is not selfish. It can be considered a form of self-care and growth within. If you are truly committed to applying the principles shared to your own life, greater is your message to others when they can witness you in action mode. So, today, I encourage you to live out your best life by following your own advice. Have a great day!!!!
